In these tumultuous times of personal stress, full schedules, a barrage of negativity on social media and news, we find that peace and centering ourselves becomes more and more difficult. So, for you as a photographic artist, how do you define peace in your work or world? Is it that quiet moment by the water or under a canopy of trees and sky in meditation? Is it with your family? Is it creating images from your imagination? On a walk? Exploring life? What brings you peace and back to center? This may seem a complex question, but it is one that we’d like to see how you interpret through your work.
Everyone will be represented, and KCSCP board of directors will curate the work and choose 1-3 of everyone’s submission. So really search your soul and tell us how you are Finding Peace, Finding Center.

Sense of Place: Members Exhibit
April 7-June 4th
Sense of Place explores the relationship between place and culture, in addition to individual and collective identity.
An artist’s relationship to geography, topography, and the land, can assist in the study and utilization of its effects on character and psyche in their art process. For others this the way place impacts the feeling and perception of those who reside and work in a specific place. However, place can define a culture and shape identity by living in and absorbing the environment. An artist may delve into how geography and culture interact, as well as shape and define a culture.
A sense of place can define where we live as special or unique, and that foster a sense of attachment, authenticity and a profound sense of belonging.
