Faces of Solvang

“Faces of Solvang: 100 Years of Diversity and Community” debuts November 13 in the gallery at Elverhøj Museum of History and Art. The exhibition celebrates Solvang’s centennial with photographs depicting the many faces of Solvang’s cultures, past and present.

The diverse group of 17 jury-selected photographers shares their experiences of Solvang, providing a visual, compelling idea of the community and its individuals.

A Juror’s Award of $1,000 and other awards will be presented during the opening reception on Sunday November 13 from 3:00 to 5:00pm. The public is invited to meet and celebrate with the photographers. There is no charge for admission; refreshments will be served.

A team of jurors, led by Crista Dix, was pleased to select from a diverse and strong field of photo entries. Dix, founder and director of Wall Space Gallery in Santa Barbara, is a photographer, curator, and lover of photography. She has been a member of numerous panels, discussions, and juried creative competitions, and has participated in major portfolio reviews across the country as well as online.

Selected photographers are: Emily Abello, Neal Abello, Terry Ames, Jeremy Ball, Susan Bott, Constance Cody, Kimberly Davis, Ann Dittmer, Tracy Farhad, Kam Jacoby, Kristen Johnson, Robert W. Knowles, Ines Labunski Roberts, Kay McWilliams, Heidi Peschel, Bob Raleigh, Edel Schonfeldt, Margaret Swann, and Frank Swanson.
