Deadline looming for photography exhibit

Artists must submit their work for the Conanicut Island Art Association’s juried photography show from 3:30-7 p.m. Jan. 18 at the library, 26 North Road.

The show, titled “The Focal Point,” will be judged by Swiss photographer Daniel Forster, a Jamestown resident who has covered 12 America’s Cups and 11 Olympic Games. He photographed the February 1987 cover shot of Stars & Stripes skipper Dennis Conner.

Artists are eligible to submit three photographs, no larger than 5 feet high or 4 feet wide. Submissions must be wired and ready to hang. Cost for the first entry is $15 for members, $20 for nonmembers. There is a $5 fee for additional submissions. An opening reception is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 25. The art association receives a 25 percent commission on any photograph that is sold.
