Iowa 4-H Camera Corps Featured in Ladd Gallery
Iowa Ag Connection - 03/13/2018
Each year, the Iowa 4-H Camera Corps captures the beauty in communities around Iowa. Over the next few months, a collection of 60 Iowa 4-H Camera Corps members' work will be on display at the Ladd Gallery in Cedar Rapids.
Through the Iowa 4-H Camera Corps program, 4-H'ers work together to creatively explore the world around them using photography and social media. They capture beautiful, powerful and unique photographs of communities from across of the state of Iowa.
Each month, a photography topic/theme is provided with different subject matters as the primary focus.
An exhibition to celebrate the work of these young people opened Feb. 27 at the Ladd Gallery in Cedar Rapids and continues through May 13. Talented and creative 4-H members from 35 counties across Iowa have works exhibited. All are invited to see the
collection. A closing reception for artists and their families will be held May 13 at the Ladd Gallery from 2-4 p.m.
The best photographs were submitted digitally from across the state to Iowa 4-H social media platforms. Voting took place through Iowa 4-H social media platforms and by a panel of professional photographer evaluators.
The gallery is organized into the top 10 people's and juror's choice photographs in three themes: "Orange you glad it's fall," "Creative portraits" and "Texture."
