South Bethany photographers can now submit art for the Town’s “Art in the Hall” exhibit, a coastal-themed show.

The photography show is open to any professional, amateur or “avid weekend” photographer. Entrants should be residents, property owners, relatives or somehow closely connected to the Town of South Bethany.

Applications are due March 15. The exhibition starts with an opening-night reception on May 26 at 7 p.m. and runs through June 24.

Photos should relate to the shore or the town itself.

“We are trying to focus on South Bethany or the coastal area. So it’s definitely a beachy theme,” said Sue Callaway, an organizer of the show and town council member. “We’re trying to showcase what’s going on here [locally].”

After all the entries are submitted, the South Bethany Community Enhancement Committee, which is organizing the event, will iron out the details of how many photos to display and at what size.

“Another goal always of mine is to get people in South Bethany involved. We have some talent in South Bethany, and it’s just going to be fun to see that,” Callaway said.

“I encourage people to submit their photography and, of course, support the opening night and take advantage of seeing the work during the month,” she added.

The photographers may sell their work, but such transactions should be conducted directly between the artists and the buyer.

Applicants should submit two samples of their work, in color or black-and-white, for the CEC to review. Email the samples or any questions to sue.callaway@gmail.com.
