The 2nd Annual “Through My Lens” exhibit, at the Lynn House Gallery in Antioch, begins May 7th and runs through May 21st. There is no admission fee and the free opening artist reception will be held on Saturday, May 7th from 2-4 PM.

This year, the exhibit focus is our Antioch community and the digital images may be used for promotional efforts by the Arts & Cultural Foundation of Antioch (ACFA), City of Antioch and the Antioch Chamber of Commerce.   ACFA’s volunteer photographer, Beverly Knight, has had her beautiful Antioch photos used in the City of Antioch’s Community Newsletter and on the Antioch Chamber of Commerce’s publications and website, along featured photos on ACFA’s website and monthly E-newsletters. The exhibit creates the opportunity to have a catalog of photographs, from many photographers, to help promote the beautiful landscapes, scenery, buildings, people and more that can be found every day in Antioch.

Photography has become one of the fastest growing hobbies, with many beautiful photos captured on cell phones, which makes it easy to share and print.  Participating photographers at press date are: Beverly Knight, Carla McCrea, Carla McCrea, Constance Chevalier, Dianne Curtain, Jeff Strawther, Jerome Gibson, Laurie DiMaggio, Marcella Favaloro, Michael Partain, ick Felix, Robin Ruport, Tina Rouse, Tyler De Vincenzi.

There is a prize pool of $200 for Best of Show, $150 for 1st Place, $125 for 2nd Place and $100 3rd Place. The exhibit is for amateur photographers whose work captures the beauty of our town.

The exhibit is open to the first 35 artists who sign up. If you are interested in participating in the exhibit, please contact Diane Gibson-Gray at or (925) 325 -9897. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your photos or enjoy photos of Antioch people, places and things. There is no submission fee to participate.
