Atlanta Photography Group (APG) is now taking entries for PHOTO BUCKHEAD. As a part of our participation in Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP), all members of APG are invited to submit entries for this juried exhibition at the award-winning Mack Scogin Merrill Elam-designed Buckhead Library. The 20,000 sq. ft. building can host a broad range of sizes and types of photographic art. Juror Gregory Harris will select the images to exhibit in the newly remodeled space. Sales have been made from this exhibition in past years and will be encouraged again this year.
Juror: Gregory Harris
