Jan with her winning photo "Lace Curtains"

With all of the great things happening in photo these days, I am a bit behind on my congratulatory posts. The latest good news comes from Jan Watson and Ellen Rogers. Both had photographs accepted into the Ocean City Art Center's photography show. Extra kudos to Jan - her photo won an honorable mention. The show runs through the end of April, for more information you can go to the Ocean City Arts Center website here. Jan's winning photo will also be included in the upcoming student exhibition.
