For artists who choose the camera as their medium, there are many challenges, the first is to convince the public that photography can and is fine art. We are so familiar with the snapshot, the group mug shot at the Grand Canyon, vacation pics and wedding photos that seeing what comes through the camera lens as fine art can be a real leap. There is a world of difference between taking and producing a Fine Art Photograph and snapping off a quick shot. But we have to show the world the difference!
To showcase photography as fine art, as a medium that takes as much creative thinking and hard work, The Renaissance Art Gallery is going to host its second Annual Fine Art Exhibition in July 2010.
The challenge this year is “Color Complements” and the photography should focus on the use of color in the composition of the photograph. The Prospectus is available now at The Renaissance Art Gallery. Or you can download a copy from The Renaissance Art Gallery website: http://www.orgsites.com/wv/renaissance If you wish a copy by mail send a SASE envelop to:
The Renaissance Art Gallery

Huntington, WV 25701
While this challenge might seem daunting, it is doable. Take a look around and see just how much color plays a part of our everyday life. The photographer in you will be up to this challenge.
