Pocono Mountain Arts Councils members are invited to attend:
This year’s Fall Dunning Gallery Art Exhibit at Northampton Community College’s Monroe Campus will be a photographic exhibition tentatively titled: Monroe County Past & Present: Resorts, Ruins, and the Rural Landscape – and it will be presented in partnership with the Monroe County Historical Society.
The show will be a photographic exploration of Monroe County’s history, featuring contemporary photographs alongside historical photos and artifacts provided and curated by the Monroe County Historical Society. As the title indicates, the show will explore three different areas of our local history: A) the history of resorts and recreation in Monroe Country, B) our industrial and architectural past and present (the empty warehouses and furnaces that still stand all around our county were once hubs of manufacture and enterprise – and historic buildings have been re-faced and re-imagined for new uses), and C) the shifting landscape of Monroe County itself that, despite industrialized progress, still retains the amazing natural beauty that has drawn artists and visitors for hundreds of years.
We are currently looking for local artists to submit photographs for this juried show. To submit your photos for consideration, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please submit no more than five (5) photographs for consideration. All images submitted for judging should be set at a resolution of 72 DPI (and no more than 8 by 10 inches in dimension – file size should be less than 5 megabytes). It is suggested that all files entered be saved with an sRGB color space to be assured that the proper colors are being displayed on the judging monitors. Files should also indicate the location and date that each photograph was taken.
Photographs must be emailed prior to June 1st for consideration in the Fall Juried Show, and photographers selected to exhibit will be notified by June 15th.
Stand by for 2019 announcements for the November Show.

Winter is almost over and spring is around the corner! I know we all are ready to see spring after the ups and downs encountered over the winter months. Getting out working in the yards and gardens. Coming up with fresh project ideas.
Also fresh project ideas for your art brushes or whatever art medium that you enjoy. Expand those ideas and create a work of art to be displayed at our Annual Members Show held at Barrett Library.
The show is for you! There are no fees and why not take advantage of an opportunity to showcase your works of art!
The "Think Outside the Box Theme" this year is working with a "white spool of thread". Take the challenge and see what you can create. It will be a fun project and we look forward to seeing what you will present.
Application can be downloaded below . Complete and return by April 14, 2019. Thank you!
