Weatherford Art Association Photography-Digital Art Show seeks entrants

The Weatherford Art Association will sponsor the Annual Photography–Digital Art Show & Sale Oct. 18–Nov. 17.

Art Registration and delivery of artwork is Oct. 14-16, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Firehouse Art Gallery, located at 119 W. Palo Pinto St. in Weatherford.

The competition is open to all photography and digital artists. Categories will include:

• Photography, Black & White – minimal digital editing.

• Photography, Color – minimal digital editing.

• Digital Art, Photo Manipulation – obvious or extreme reliance on photo editing software to manipulate original photo.

The association has the right to assign and/or combine categories if needed. All work must be original and created by the artist in the past three years and not shown in a previous WAA Photography show. A 20 percent commission on sales goes to WAA and all work must be wired for hanging.

This will be a judged show with cash awards for each category. First place prize is $100; second place is $75; and third place is $50. Honorable mention prizes are $10.

The awards ceremony and artist reception will be hosted at the Firehouse Art Center on the closing day on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m. Artists are asked to take their photographs home at this time.

Les Lopez will judge this special show. Lopez is a familiar figure in Weatherford. Both he and his wife, Cecelia, who is an artist, are members of this community. They met at the University of Texas-Austin, where he majored in Pharmacy and Cecelia in Fine Arts.

Photography has been a lifetime passion for Les. Cecelia embraced that passion soon after their marriage. Gradually a hobby became a profession as both continued to study and become more involved in photography. Upon Les’ retirement from Pharmacy in 1998 they opened a full time professional photography studio, which is still in operation.

Practicing most of their photography in the Weatherford area, the couple has not developed a specialty. Instead they have mastered techniques to cover portraiture, weddings and commercial photography as well as restoration of old images.
