The Pickaway County Park District and ArtsaRound Gallery recently invited photographers to dust off their cameras and to head out to their local parks and trails as we host our first ever Photo Contest. Photos taken from the past three year were submitted under four categories: Wildlife, Beautiful Scenery, People In The Parks and the Pickaway County Park District Park/Trail.
All photos were submitted online through the Park District’s website. The Top 25 photographers were then invited to submit printed copies of their work to be displayed at ArtsaRound’s Gallery on the Original Circle for a month-long gallery exhibit and sale from April 30th through May 23rd.
During this time, ArtsaRound invites visitors to view the art and vote on the Peoples Choice Award at a coast of $1.00 a vote to benefit ArtsaRound and its on-going projects. First, second and third place in each category, as well as the People’s Choice award will be announced and awarded prizes at a gallery reception for all participants from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 23rd at the ArtsaRound Gallery, located at 135 W. Main Street in Downtown Circleville.
All winning photographs will then be placed on display at various downtown businesses for the month of June. For more information visit the Pickaway County Park District website at www.pickawaycountyparks.org or visit PickawayArtsaRound on facebook.
