An Exhibition of Photos of the Town Of Essex Including Essex Junction

Train Hop ©Ken Signorello

We want to see photos of your Essex for an exhibition at Darkroom Gallery.  What is it about Essex, the town, and Essex Junction, the village, that stand out in your mind, make them feel like home? Is it the fairgrounds, the big elm tree that marks the edge of Essex at Jericho or the old water tower on Route 15 where you first enter Essex when coming from Burlington? The park at Indian Brook? The Amtrak station? Or any one of the dozens of landmarks that dot the area? It's probably something more personal than that: the people you see every day in your neighborhood, the unique appearance of the street where you live, an especially attractive garden, dogs at play, children at play - the possibilities for photographic subjects are as endless as your vision and imagination.

There's no need to be an accomplished photographer or to have expensive equipment; your cellphone and your eyes are all that's necessary. Submit up to five images online, by email or drop them off at the gallery, 12 Main St. in Essex Junction.  We'll select at least one and display it the gallery from October 18 to November 3. There's no cost to enter. You can provide your own print or have us make one for you for a nominal fee. All photos entered must be the work of the entrant with one exception: Images of Essex past. Historic photos of Essex including Essex Junction are very welcome regardless of who took them; we want to see and share them.
