HOMER, N.Y. – The Show Us CNY15 Exhibition—a jury-selected show of 40 images from the Show Us CNY15 community photo project—opened Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Center for the Arts of Homer (72 S. Main St., Homer), with a public reception on Friday, Oct. 30, from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition runs through Nov. 14.

The 40 images on display are by 23 local photographers: Michael Byrne, Brian Byrnes, Kathryn Cartini, Tara Charles (2 photos), Kate Collins (5), Andrea Elliott, Joe Falcetti, Kathleen Paice Froio, Jim Gibbons, Laurel Haller (4), Julie Janusz (2), Dan King (6), Laura McCord, Adrian Mitchell (3), Kevin Morrow, Tim Mulcahy, Tim O’Connor, Molly Saunders, Tony Shi, John Szozda, Michael Tracy (2), Whitney Wagner and Michele Wood.

They were selected by a panel of 22 judges from a selection of 1,100 images submitted this summer by Central New York community members who posted their images to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #ShowUsCNY15 or submitted by email (to [email protected]), which were then collected in a large online gallery.

The exhibition photos represent seven distinct categories: Action, Animals, Artistic, B&W/Unicolor, People, Scenic/Nature and Structure. From the pieces in the exhibition, the judges selected “Best of” recipients in each category, plus an overall “Best of Show” image—all of which are identified in the display.
