The Beckley Art Center is calling for Black & White photography highlighting West Virginia, in all its forms, for our 2021 BW-WV exhibition.

This photography exclusive exhibition is open to all points of view, all levels of expertise, and all ideas of black and white photography. We encourage artists to cast aside the color spectrum and focus on the visual power of black, white, and the tones in between. Wv has a beautifully diverse and dream-like landscape, with interesting faces, spaces, people, and places. We welcome all forms of photography for this exhibition, including but not limited to portraiture, landscape, contemporary, narrative, action, editorial or architectural. We just ask that whatever is submitted is based in or on Wv people, places, landscapes, or environments. This exhibition was created with the intent to deeply focus on the subjects, textures, shapes and patterns, and compositions that are created with B&W photography.

Exhibition Dates: August 17 – October 16, 2021  (Tuesday – Saturday)
