Friends of the State Theatre has agreed to host printed and framed photos in the vestibule at State Theatre for the duration of the Autumn 2016 Stoughton Photo Contest. People will be able to view the photos at any time of the day or night during the duration of the photo contest. The printed and framed photos, to be signed by the photographers if possible, will be available for purchase through a round robin auction with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Friends of the State Theatre.
I’ll be honest here. I have no experience in running a photo exhibit so things will not be perfect. I’ll do my best.
I’ll be frank here. The photo exhibit will be open to public traffic 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. These photos and frames and the infrastructure to exhibit them will be costly in both money and time. My main goal is to stir emotions for the people who are enjoying the photos and to stir pride in the Stoughton community. I’m worried about theft and vandalism.
I’ll be excited here. I love photography. I’m not great at it but I try. I am great at appreciating the joy behind the work of photography. Being able to showcase the hard work and the talent and, in some cases, the pure luck in the entrants’ photos will be fun in the context of “Celebrate Stoughton” throughout the fall.
Maybe enjoy lunch or dinner at any of the restaurants in Stoughton Center like
- Avocados Mexican Restaurant
- Chicken Kebab
- Kyoto Chinese Restaurant
- Nagoya Sushi
- Stoughton House of Brews
while you’re visiting the exhibit.
Start entering those photos! We’ll start printing and framing your shots, if they’re good enough, for inclusion in the Autumn 2016 Stoughton Photo Contest exhibit at State Theatre. Go to Facebook.com/617HubEdge or StoughtonPhotoContest.com to enter your photos or vote on the photos.
