Bowen Arts Center


This year, the Bowen Center for the Arts is sponsoring and hosting their Juried Photography Exhibition Themed “Not all those who wander are lost”~the quote by J.R.R. Tolkein. It features 37 photographic entrants from three States and 20 Cities who submitted 127 works. Our Judge, Mike Ramy of Atlanta (mikieproductions.com), chose 70 of the submitted works for this display.

These works are profound studies of the theme that show care and thought. The Bowen always enjoys these juried events, and would like to thank all these photographers for bringing such wonderful and inspiring works to our Art Center. And of course, we also enjoy rewarding artistic efforts with prizes which were announced during our Opening Awards Reception July 16th.
