Call for Art

“Close Encounters” Photography Exhibit

“Settled” by Rebecca Skinner

The Morini Gallery at MMAS is committed to supporting our local artists.

Artists are invited to explore the concept of macro and/or close up photography. There is something magical about seeing a subject up close and personal. This opens up a whole new world of options for you as a photographer. Think of an old watch, a flower or even some food items that could be shot on your kitchen table. The shapes, textures and colors come to life in the world of close up photography. This is not strictly a macro exhibit. Close up photography can be loosely defined as larger than life size.  

The show is open to photography only, Artists may enter up to five (5) images.
