PRESS RELEASE: PhotoSlam 2010 at Photostop Gallery in White River Junction

The first Upper Valley PhotoSlam exhibit will be on display beginning April 30th at the PHOTOSTOP Gallery. An Opening reception is scheduled for May 7th (a White River Junction, VT First Friday) from 5-8 pm and a Closing party is scheduled for May 22nd, also from 5-8 pm. Both events are open to the general public.

Gallery Director Lia Rothstein put out a call for photographers of all ages and levels of experience to submit their photos for this first-ever photo event. Over 130 photographers aged 5 to 91, amateur to pro and everything in-between, shared their photos for inclusion in the PhotoSlam. The Gallery had pledged to print at least one image from each photographer and, as a result, there will be nearly 240 photographs with diverse imagery on display.

Color, black and white, and digitally manipulated images will all be shown.

At the Closing party on May 22nd, attending photographers may choose to say a few words about their photographs and trade their unsold images with other photographers, if desired. The PhotoSlam event is a celebration of the incredible richness and variety of photographs being taken by Upper Valley residents.

PHOTOSTOP Gallery is located in Suite 150 of the Tip Top Media Arts Building, 85 North Main Street, White River Jct.,VT 05001. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 2-7:30 PM during exhibitions. On First Fridays and opening nights the gallery will be open until 8 PM. Other hours are available by appointment.
