On the Thirteenth of July, 2012 the Houston Center for Photography (HCP) hosted the opening reception for their 30th.Annual Juried Membership Exhibition. The exhibition was juried by Anne Wilkes Tucker, Gus and Lyndall Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Ms. Tucker selected thirty-seven photographers from a record number of 369 applicants. This year three Juror’s Commendations were awarded to: Aaron Blum (Pittsburgh, PA), Megan Ledbetter (Jamaica Plain, MA) and Nenad Saljic (Split, Croatia).* BBF was pleased to present the first Beth Block Juried Membership Honoraria, of $500.00 each, to these artists.
The BBF is looking forward to continuing its support of emerging lens based photographers with a travel stipend in the fall for an artist completing their graduate studies at School of Visual Arts (SVA), and a summer work internship stipend to a student studying at Sarah Lawrence College’s (SLC) Fine Art Photography program.
