Press ReleasePhoto Contest: The Garden Variety
In participation with the 2017 Louisville Photo Biennial, First Light Gallery is hosting its first Photo Contest which will benefit Waterfront Botanical Gardens.
In countless ways, we are surrounded by the beauty of nature. It sustains us, uplifts us, and makes comfortable our lives here on Earth. We enjoy the calming shade of trees, the sweet fragrance of flowers, the rustling of leaves tickled by a breeze, and kaleidoscopes of vivid colors. Yet beyond the simple beauty we see in the chromatic blossoms and lush greens around us exists our symbiotic union with the world of plants. To breathe is to enjoy the labors of our rooted cohabitants.
This Call to Artists is to bring together a collection of photographs from lovers of nature and seers of its beauty. Whether a vast landscape or an intimate detail, First Light Gallery encourages all photographers to submit their images of the natural world. We wish to support and promote the vision of Waterfront Botanical Gardens, as well as further involve and align our community with their efforts.
