Click here to join the event, which will be livestreamed on the BAC website.

Only 60 images were chosen from 199 entries for the “Gallery of Images,” which was open to artists of all ages and will feature cash prizes of more than $1,000 to be offered in both black-and-white and color categories. In addition to the prize awards, all winning artists will also receive a complimentary art book of the exhibit's work.

Hosting the event will be BAC chairwoman Beverly R. Miller, who serves on the photography exhibition committee with Michael S. Miller.

In addition, 10 percent of all entry fees will benefit Asbury Park Dinner Table, a nonprofit group created to support local restaurants while feeding local families during the coronavirus pandemic.  

Serving as jurors for the show are noted photographer Debra L. Rothenberg and contemporary multimedia artist Catherine Trapani.

Rothenberg is known for her photographic images of concerts, celebrities, news, sports, children and events.  Her work has been distributed and exhibited worldwide in galleries, newspapers, magazines and books, as well as on CD covers and many websites.

The New York City resident earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in photographic illustration/photojournalism from Rochester Institute of Technology.

Trapani has studied studio arts at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and Pratt Institute in Seattle, where she also completed digital and film studies at the Photographic Center Northwest.

Her artwork investigates the relationship between order and chaos.  It is often discreetly photo-based, using digital and hand techniques to alter imagery. It has been exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum and Portland Art Museum.  She was an original member of Seattle Print Arts.

For 25 years, Trapani has taught classes throughout the United States and currently teaches at the Encaustic Art Institute of New Mexico, as well as from her studio in Santa Fe.
