Viewpoint Photographic Art Center on J Street in Sacramento is calling for photographers of all skill levels to submit photos for an upcoming exhibit. The focus of the exhibit will be the American River Parkway, and the exhibit will be called Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs. If you have a great photo of the parkway, send it in, and maybe it will be included in the exhibit! Or, if you’re feeling creative, go for a walk along the river with a camera and see what you might find. Create a piece of art by capturing something inspiring and beautiful along the river, submit it to Viewpoint Photographic Art Center, and it could end up in the gallery. All photographers and all photographic techniques and mediums are welcome. Photos must be taken at the 4,900-acre American River Parkway, which stretches for 23 miles between Folsom Dam and Discovery Park (where the American River meets the Sacramento River). The three prize categories are landscape/riverscape, wildlife and sports/recreation/human interest. The deadline for submissions is July 29, 2017. The exhibit will be open to the public and will be on display in September 2017. Enter online at Viewpointgallery.org.
