Arts Clayton opens photography contest exhibit this week

JONESBORO — How does the world look when it is seen through a camera lens?

Photographers from across Georgia will answer that question this week when Arts Clayton Gallery’s annual Juried Photography Competition exhibit opens to the public. The contest pits the photographers against each other, as they pursue the ultimate prize — a “Best in Show” ribbon and a month-long exhibit at the gallery at a later date.

Ribbons are also given out for first-, second- and third-place entries in the competition.

The winners will be announced Friday, during an opening reception set to begin at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend the free reception at the gallery, 136 South Main St. in Jonesboro.
