“Photography Unsettled” Exhibit Announcement

About the Exhibit:

Month of Photography Denver is a Colorado-based biennial celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout Denver and the region. The theme for MoP 2017 is “Up to the Edge.” This theme serves as an exploration of the far-reaching applications and concepts emerging in photography today.

In conjunction with Month of Photography, Photography Unsettled aims to showcase the wide range in contemporary artists’ practice which features photography in some way, as well as the many mediums of art which are mixing with photography so that it belongs less and less to a specific medium or category. This national juried group show features 22 from ten states, each with a unique interpretation of the theme.

Featured Artists Include:

John Bonath, Bob Campagna, Terrence Decker, Kelly Dietrick, David Fodel, Jessica Glover, Scott Hays, Patricia Howard, Katie Kalkstein, Emily Knight, Kerry Kolenut, Stephen Marc, Dan McCormack, Gordon Middleton, Allen Morris, Kia Neill, Josh Palmeri, Michael Pointer, Beverly Poppe, Abbie R Powers & Denny Haskew, Russ Rowland, and Kate Shannon
