Writeup! Judged Fall Photo – 2021

The Fall Judged Photography show is on the walls at Rainbow Stew in Yucca Valley until October 13, 2021.

Our seasonal photography shows are open to the public and judged by an invited artist and they provide a fantastic glimpse of what our local photographers have been focused on. Many of of are still experiencing limited excursion opportunities but we still find subjects to present.

A total of 16 photographs were received, still fewer than we had hoped since the photography show used to be such a packed affair. Yet the entries were lovely as always and they were sorted into the three judged categories of "Nature's Kaleidoscope", "Beautiful Creatures", and "Hand of Man".

Third-place

Thanks go to the participating photographers that shared their work with us. To Rainbow Stew and all visitors that make these shows possible. And congratulations to the creators that placed!

If you find yourself out and about, make sure to stop by Rainbow Stew (masks and social distancing required) and enjoy the Judged Photo show. It will be displayed until April when we transition into the Judged Spring Fine Art show!

We all want to take advantage of this great space because it sees a constant stream of traffic throughout the week. Chaparral Artists see sales through this venue, so do not pass up the opportunity to hang your art with us when you can during these shows.

Stay safe and continue creating!
