Exhibit held October 23-25,2020 at the Evendale Cultural Arts Center, 10428 Reading Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45241.

Community can be defined in several ways; a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government and often have a common cultural and historical heritage. Community can also stretch beyond locality and be a social, or occupational group that shares common characteristics or interests and perceives itself as distinct in some respect from the larger society within which it usually exists. "What is Your Community Light: An Evendale Juried Photography Exhibit" invites artist photographers out into the light, to explore their community and celebrate the art of photography and the community and stories it creates.


Photographers (professional and amateur 18 years or older living within a 50-mile radius of Evendale) are eligible to submit digital photographs or film photographs. As this is held in a family-friendly cultural arts center, artwork will be evaluated for appropriateness. Student category is considered any student under the age of 18 currently enrolled in school.


Judging for the exhibition will be done by 2020 Juror Kent Krugh with input from the exhibit committee. Kent Krugh is a fine art photographer living and working in Cincinnati.  His work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions both national and international and in major festivals including FotoFest (Houston) and the Festival de la Luz (Buenos Aires). His work is held in various collections including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Portland Art Museum, and the Cincinnati Art Museum.  The decision of the judges is final and binding. A Best of Show, 2nd place, 3rd place, and honorable mentions will be chosen from all selected exhibition entries.
