Last night in Hudson NY, belo3rd and all of Warren Street was buzzing. Six galleries and the Opera House had receptions including the reception at Davis Orton Gallery for Sylvia Plachy. Sylvia’s friends, family and fans are legion and a substantial portion filled the Gallery and continued onto the sidewalk – all there to meet her and see her show, “Apparitions.”
The Photographer and the Self-Published PhotoBook
The self-published photobook is an exciting new avenue for photographers to present their work directly to the public. In addition, the photobook itself can be a work of art.
As part of the Davis Orton Gallery’s commitment to showcasing the work of contemporary photographers, the Gallery is sponsoring a juried photobook competition culminating in a gallery exhibition and sale.
