Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

CENTREVILLE — It’s all “About Faces” at the new ex­hibit at the Queen Anne’s County Arts Coun­cil in Centreville. More than 40 black and white pho­tos en­tries were sub­mit­ted in the photo con­test, spon­sored by the coun­cil.

The call for artists went out in Septem­ber to coun­cil mem­bers, pho­tog­ra­phy clubs, and am­a­teurs and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers ask­ing for the con­tes­tants to fo­cus on the faces of the Eastern Shore. The en­tries will be judged on Tues­day, Nov. 1, by world renowned pho­tog­ra­pher and Centreville res­i­dent, Anne Niel­son.

“We are so excited by the re­sponses we re­ceived,’” said Rick Stritt­mater, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor. “The qual­ity of the pho­tos is amaz­ing.”

The ex­hibit will open on Fri­day even­ing, Nov. 4. with the an­nounce­ment of the win­ners fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion from 6 un­til 9 p.m.

A prize of $100 will go to the first place win­ner and $50 will go to the se­cond place win­ner. Oth­ers will re­ceive rib­bons for Hon­or­able Men­tion. The ex­hibit will re­main up for the month of Novem­ber in the arts cen­ter gallery at 206 South Com­merce Street in Centreville. Gallery hours are Tues­day through Satur­day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For in­for­ma­tion, call 410-758-2520.
