Upcoming Exhibit: Motion

Natick Community Senior Center
New England Light Painters
Group Show
November – December 2014

All members of New England Light Painters (NELP) and other local photographers are invited to submit their work for this special group exhibit at the Natick Community Senior Center.

Motion images may be captured by any image-making tool one wishes to use (camera, phone, or some totally unexpected device.) Motion may be created by the image’s subject or by the device’s motion.

Both conventional photographs and manipulated creative photographs are welcome.  We would like to feature multiple works per artist, so consider submitting works of a similar sub-theme or grouping.  Also, keep in mind this is a public venue so please use discretion when selecting your subject matter for submission.

Your submission for judging will be by email.  Images must be in JPG format, no larger than 1200 pixels wide/high.  File size must be under 500KB (use sufficient compression).  Your image file name should be in the format:


The #W and #H are the width and height of the framed photograph (including the frame), in inches; price in whole dollars (no cents) or NFS if print is not for sale.  For example, JohnPublic-MyPiano-20W-16H-175.jpg would be a valid file name.  Submit your images by email to Virge Lorents at virge.lorents[at]gmail.com.  You will be notified by email if your work has been selected for this exhibit.

All accepted photographs submitted for hanging must be framed and wired (no sawtooth).  Please make sure your framed artwork is labeled with your name, preferred contact information (email and/or phone number), artwork title and price, and make sure the exhibit organizer has all of this information.  We will prepare labels for each piece with this information, and an exhibit price list.


  • Each artist may submit up to five (5) images by email for judging (no fee).
  • All work submitted for hanging must be framed and wired (no sawtooth).
  • Interested parties will contact you directly if they are interested in purchasing your work.
  • Sold work must remain at the Natick Community Senior Center for the duration of the exhibit.
  • The Natick Community-Senior Center and the Town of Natick don’t carry any insurance for displayed artwork.  NELP is not responsible for any artwork.
