New Orleans Museum of Art Present:

PhotoNOMA: One Night, One Hundred Photographers!

 

(New Orleans) The New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA), in partnership with the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), is thrilled to announce PhotoNOMA, a photographers' portfolio sharing night at the New Orleans Museum of Art on Friday, April 18th. This popular photographic free-for-all features 100 photographers displaying their work. Participating artists include Sandra Russell Clark, Julie Dermansky  Susan Guice, Tim Hope, George Long and Jennifer Shaw. PhotoNOMA will run from 5:30-8:30pm, during Friday Nights at NOMA. Admission is $10 for the general public, $5 for Photo Alliance members and free to NOMA members.

"PhotoNOMA has been one of my favorite events ever since it's inception when it was known as Underexposed" says New Orleans Photo Alliance President Seth Boonchai.  "It is always a unique and dynamic evening and we are grateful to New Orleans Museum of Art for providing so many photographers with the opportunity to show their work."

PhotoNOMA is growing into a national event with photographers traveling in from Colorado, Illinois, Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama to participate. A broad range of work will be on display, covering almost every genre and technique; including landscapes, photojournalism, portraiture, street photography, wet plate collodion work and more. This one-night event offers guests a wonderful opportunity to learn about photography by viewing a variety of portfolios and conversing with the image-makers. Previews of some of the participating artists can be found online at: http://neworleansphotoalliance.blogspot.com/

About the New Orleans Photo Alliance

The New Orleans Photo Alliance was formed by a diverse group of photographers in 2006 to foster community and opportunities for photographers in the Gulf South.  It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage the understanding and appreciation of photography.  NOPA currently serves more than 350 members from Louisiana and throughout the United States.  Since its inception, NOPA has sponsored numerous photographic exhibitions, workshops and educational programs, including PhotoNOLA, the annual photography festival held each December in New Orleans.  NOPA administers two annual $5000 grants: the Michael P. Smith Fund for Documentary Photography and the Clarence John Laughlin Award.
