Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is proud to announce its first non-juried photography exhibition, an opportunity for the Zoo’s many dedicated amateur and professional photographers to submit their best work for public viewing. Opening night for the Exhibit is Thursday, July 25th, a festive evening celebration for the public, to view the photos and for photographers to meet and mingle with each other.
“Art is a natural way for people to express their love of animals and appreciation of nature,” said Zoo Director Gregg Dancho. “The Photography Goes Wild Exhibit will help to showcase the stunning diversity of species at the zoo, and we hope, encourage people to focus on preserving wild habitats and animal conservation in new ways.”
In preparation for the Exhibit, event sponsor Milford Photo will be on Zoo grounds on Saturday, June 22, with a display of cameras and lenses. In addition to a guided Zoo Walkabout with experienced animal photographer and Zoo Volunteer Jack Bradley, Milford Photo will loan lenses that day for a free trial.
