Photography Exhibit and Contest to be Held at the End of March in Wellsville


By  Mary Gardner-Ruch

Last in the Graceful Lines series hosted by Grace United Church in Wellsville is an Inspirational photography exhibit and contest.  It is open to the public and will be held at the David A Howe Public Library.  

In order to participate, you are asked to choose an inspirational quote that inspires you and to take a photograph that reflects your quote.  Many people like to use their phone cameras and get some really good shots.  You can also choose a photo that you took in the past that you really like and feel will be meaningful to others. 

Any size photo is acceptable.  Prints can be made inexpensively at Walgreens.  There is no need to frame the photo unless you wish.  Forms for the contest can be picked up at the library or at Grace United Church.  You are asked to provide the photo and the completed form that includes your quote by March 19th.  

Age categories are 6 and under, 7 to 12, 13-19, and 20 and over. One photo per entry. The photos will be on display in the Dave A Howe Library Exhibition Room from March 25th through April 18th. 

Award categories are Best in Show, Best in each category, and People’s Choice.  There will be ribbons and prizes awarded. Below is an example of a photograph with an inspirational quote.
