2023 Photography Show

October 28 – November 24, 2023

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) is holding an open call for photographers to submit work for our Annual Photography Show, which is held in partnership with MAAG’s Photo Club. This is a juried exhibition that runs October 28 to November 24, 2023, in the Gallery at 7054 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19119. Artists may submit up to two (2) pieces of artwork to be on display and for sale. All work must be framed with wire hangers.

Everything is a possible work of art in the eyes of photographers. Utilizing composition, light, color, shape and texture, they creatively capture moments of everyday life. MAAG invites photographers to share what has inspired them during the past year. This exhibition will present a range of creative expressions from portraits, objects, street scenes, to abstracts. Some may soothe the soul, while others rile the emotions.

MAAG’s Photo Club meets on the third Saturday of each month from 12:15 – 2:15 PM. To learn more about the club, click here.
