Western Art Collector - - WESTERN ART NEWS -

On Novem­ber 11, the Booth Western Art Mu­seum in Cartersville, Ge­or­gia, will host its Booth Photography Guild An­nual Ex­hi­bi­tion. The juried show will fea­ture works from the mu­seum’s Photography Guild, whose mem­bers rep­re­sent a wide range of skill lev­els and back­grounds who are united in their love of photography.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, which will take place in the mu­seum’s Bor­der­lands Gallery, will present a va­ri­ety of sub­jects, in­clud­ing many Western themes. The show will add to the mu­seum’s grow­ing lineup of photography shows, which in re­cent months and years has also fea­tured ex­hi­bi­tions for Ari­zona pho­tog­ra­pher Jay Dusard and Tlin­git Alaskan Na­tive Zoë Marieh Ur­ness.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will present new photography works to mu­se­um­go­ers, and it will also bring at­ten­tion to the Booth Photography Guild, which aims to “pur­sue, de­velop and pas­sion­ately en­deavor to bring about an in­creased in­ter­est in and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of photography as an art form,” ac­cord­ing to the guild’s mis­sion state­ment. “This will be ac­com­plished by ed­u­cat­ing pho­tog­ra­phers of all lev­els and by ex­hibit­ing photography and bring­ing in ex­hi­bi­tions to the com­mu­nity. The Guild’s main pur­pose is to cul­ti­vate photography en­thu­si­asts who are pa­trons, mem­bers and guests of the Booth Western Art Mu­seum.”

In ad­di­tion to the ex­hi­bi­tion, the guild also of­fers many ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties re­lated to photography, as well as monthly meet­ings on the sec­ond Satur­day of each month. For more in­for­ma­tion visit booth­pho­tog­ra­phyguild.org.
