“Newtown and Beyond” – Photos featuring Newtown are strongly encouraged, but not required. They do, however, tend to sell the best!


Exhibit of the best of our work at the Newtown Municipal Center. Every member may submit 20 photos, matted or mounted, but no frames. We are getting 75’ more exhibit hanging space which means we can hang more photos than in the past.  If final submissions exceed space and hanging limitations, however, the exhibit committee will select entrants. Photos may be offered for sale if maker chooses.

Multiple Sales of a Photo

The first person to request to buy a photo will get the one off the wall and can pick it up at the end of the exhibit. If others want your photo as well, I will email you to ask if you are willing to reproduce additional copies and get them to me before pick up on November 30.


If you choose to offer your photos for sale, please use whole dollars, in increments of $5, with a minimum of $20.

Online Registration of Photos

Email all titles with exact spelling and punctuation to Rhonda at Rhonda@CCullens.com by Wednesday night, Oct. 21, so I can make up removable labels for them. Also note if your photos will be offered for sale or not and at what price.

Advertising Photos Needed ASAP

Email one or two images of photos you will be exhibiting to Sandy at dsschill@aol.com to possibly be used in advertising posters that will be displayed around town. Please send them as soon as possible!

Providing Digital Photos for Web

We also need digital photos for our advertising on the web page about the exhibit. Click here to upload your photographs – choose “2015” and “Newtown and Beyond”.

Preparation of Photos

Use plenty of strong glue/tape etc. to secure all layers, especially if double matted and/or using mounting board or foam core. Photos will be hanging all month and need to stay together!
