Call for Entries
By Emma Victoria G. Blanco
The Fremont Cultural Arts Council (FCAC) fosters and supports the practice and enjoyment of the fine arts in the Fremont community. The Council actively sponsors local activities such as art in the schools, and provides a clearinghouse for the Arts and other charitable and non-profit activities. This year, the FCAC (with the assistance of the City of Fremont Recreation Services and the Alameda County Libraries) is sponsoring the Sixteenth Annual Juried Photography Exhibition, which will take place November 13 - December 11 at the Fremont Main Library.
Fremont residents and members of Fremont photography clubs are invited to enter their photographs for consideration. Interested photographers may submit their entries to the FCAC office (3375 Country Drive, Fremont) between October 16 and 18. Submissions must be framed photographs, ready for hanging, and must be accompanied by completed entry forms and a $5 entry fee per submitted photo. The fee will go toward basic materials cost, honorariums for the judges, and prizes awarded to winners. Entry forms, which outline additional entry criteria, are available at the following locations:
FCAC office (Hours: 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. weekdays)
Fremont Recreation Services, 3350 Capitol Avenue
Fremont libraries and many photo counters
FCAC website: www.fremontculturalartscouncil.org
A panel of three judges from outside the community will select the photographs to be displayed at the Exhibit as well as determine the Merit Award winners who will receive cash prizes. The Sixteenth Annual Juried Photography Exhibition Opening Night Reception is open to the public and will be held on Friday, November 13, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 pm in the Fremont Main Library (Fukaya Room). The exhibit will continue through December 11, during regular library hours, showcased in the main first-floor reading area.
