Pushing Reality Photography Exhibition, Columbia Center for the Arts, Hood River, Oregon

Pushing Reality Photo Contest Pro Photos Supply 
I'm happy to announce three of my images have been selected for the Pushing Reality Photography Exhibition and Sale at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River, Oregon.  "Pushing Reality" aims to make viewers stop and think and take a second look.  This year's exhibition will feature 40 images which were created in the Columbia River Gorge from April 1st, 2013 to March 31st, 2014.

Fine art prints of my images will be on display in the gallery from May 2nd - June 1, 2014 as part of the Photography Exhibition.  The framed prints are for sale if you are interested.  On Friday, May 2nd, 2014 from 6-8PM, the overall winners of the Exhibition will be announced at the gallery in Hood River.  I will be there on Friday to check out all of the prints and to see if any of my images are selected in the top three.  If you are in Hood River on Friday, May 2nd, or anytime during the month of May and you want to check out some outstanding photography, make sure to stop by the Columbia Center for the Arts in downtown Hood River.

The three images are:

"Winter's Warmth" - Snow, icicles and golden light deep in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon.

The 2014 Pushing Reality Photography Exhibition is sponsored by Pro Photo Supply in Portland, Oregon. 

Update 5/3/2014:   I attended the exhibition opening last night in Hood River.  None of my images were selected in the top three.  Even though I didn't win, it was a fun event and it was great to see all of the excellent prints.  Be sure to stop by and check out the prints if you have a chance!
