A Photo Exhibition Open To All Residents Of The Town Of Essex And Essex Junction

Juror's Choice: Four Giraffes by Bruce Berkow

If you live in the town of Essex including the Village of Essex Junction we want to see . . .  your Essex for a celebratory  . . . 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.

You don't have to be an accomplished photographer or have expensive equipment; your cellphone and your eyes are all you need. Submit up to five images online, by email or drop them off with an entry form. We'll select at least one and display it at our reception. 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. One exception: images of Essex past . . . so if you have historic photos of Essex including  Essex Junction we want to see and share them.
