December 10, 2014 - 2 minutes read

Delighted to announce my first place selection by Ruben Natal San Miguel in RIPE art gallery’s WHATISAPORTRAIT? exhibition opening this Saturday, December 13, 2014.  Special thanks to the tireless and fearless team of Ruben and RIPE’s owner, Cherie Via Rexer!

From the gallery:

“Ripe Art Gallery’s First Juried Photography Exhibition was an Open Call for entries of contemporary photography based works. This competition is juried/curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel, photographer, writer, photography specialist/critic and curator. The curator was looking to see exceptional photography with a unique perspective and cohesive look based on a new look at portraiture. He challenged entrants to redefine what a portrait is. Our juror, who has his finger on the pulse of contemporary photography, pored over hundreds of entries to select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Winners, 2 Honorable Mentions, and a group of winners for individual catagories.

Winners will be exhibited with Amy Elkins, Oliver Wasow, Nan Goldin, Aline Smithson, Ryan McGinley, Jack Pierson and 4 more great photographers!

Opening Reception on Saturday, December 13, 2014, 7-10pm! This Promises to be THE Show of the Year!!! Fabulous people, Valet Parking, Live dj Music from DJ Lombardo, and GREAT Photography!!!!!
Food Truck by Blondie’s Bakery for your snacks!”
