Koenig Frameworks' Spring Photography Show 2011: Call for submissions

Koenig FrameWorks in Newtown is hosting a juried spring photography show on the theme of "Fantasy." They are receiving submissions between April 9th and April 23, 2011. The exhibit will run from May 6-May 27, 2011.

They define fantasy as "a supposition based on no solid foundation; visionary idea; illusion; something that people believe is false." They are encouraging photographers to enter "images of any location, setting, or thing that portrays a fantastical element. It could be hidden, or leak into the real world. It may entirely occur in a fantasy world."

The opening reception and awarding of ribbons will be on May 6th.

Koenig FrameWorks is located at 97 South Main St. (Rt. 25) Newtown, CT.
