Each pictorial impression of what lies ahead will be different than any other. We all take our own path through life. This exhibition presents an opportunity to illustrate a good place to stand, walk, drive, sail, or fly.

Pathways and Passages is a juried exhibit. The juror is Stephen Perloff, noted photographer, photo writer, and publisher and editor of The Photo Review. He will select between 50 and 60 images from the total submitted for exhibition in a professional gallery setting.

Pathways and Passages Artist Benefits

  • All selected entries are exhibited in a gallery and included in a full color exhibit catalog.
  • Juror’s Choice receives a 30×48″ vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image, free entry into a future exhibition, a free exhibition catalog, and a signed copy of Stephen Perloff’s book “North Dakota.”
  • Honorable Mentions receive free exhibition catalogs and free entry in a future exhibition.
  • People’s Choice gains free entry into a future exhibit.

All selected exhibitors will benefit from exposure through Darkroom Gallery’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages. Their work will be seen by those who visit our gallery during the course of the exhibit. They will have the option of leaving their prints in an exhibit portfolio where they can be viewed by gallery visitors for an indefinite period. Darkroom Gallery continues to promote and sell our exhibitor’s photos after an exhibit closes.

Exhibitors also benefit from receiving publication credit through our elegant exhibition catalogs. Each photo exhibited has a page in the catalog along with a short description written by the photographer.
