If you are in the Santa Barbara, California area anytime between now and August 7th visit the Santa Barbara Zoo to see the Wild Things Photography Exhibition. The Wild Things show is the result of a multi-round photography competition co-coordinated by the Wilding Museum of Art & Nature in Solvang, California and the Santa Barbara Zoo.
The show features images of animals at the Santa Barbara Zoo in two competitor categories: Adult and Junior. Competitors submitted digital images for panel judging. From that group semi-finalists were asked to submit framed prints for final judging. Final images are on display at the Volentine Gallery in the Santa Barbara Zoo Discovery Pavilion.
My image Flamingo Flow was selected as one of 20 adult entries for the exhibition. Over 250 entries were submitted as part of the competition. A 20 x 10 print of Flamingo Flow was framed and now hangs in the Volentine Gallery in the Discovery Pavilion through August 7, 2018. Entry to the exhibit is free with zoo admission.
All images are for sale and part of the sale proceeds goes to support the work of the Santa Barbara Zoo in education and conservation.
I am very pleased to have had Flamingo Flow selected for the Wild Things Photography Competition Exhibit. Thank you to the staff and competition planners from the Wilding Museum and Santa Barbara Zoo. Thanks as well to the dedicated individuals who served on the judging panel.
Also, special thanks to Creative Framing in Corvallis for making Flamingo Flow look great.
