The Griffin Museum celebrates the craft of photography and the community it serves in its thirtieth year with our Annual Juried Members Exhibition.
We want to know what you have been up to creatively over the last 3 years. The call for this years exhibition is Under the Mask.
This call for entry invites photographers to submit work about the psychological, social, and emotional results of the last three years. We’ve all seen the photographs of masked citizens, but what transpired behind the mask? What were the aftereffects when we put our masks away? Artists are invited to submit work made since 2020....
