Call for Entry: Family Dynamics

Family Dynamics

The Kiernan Gallery / Deadline: 12/27/11

From formal portraits to snapshots, family pictures adorn our homes more than any other type of photograph. Images of family reveal personal connections as well as emotional distances. They are historical records, containing both facades and truths. The definition of family is a personal one, and for Family Dynamics, The Kiernan Gallery welcomes images that break with tradition or embrace it, whether the family is yours, someone else's, or one to which you have chosen to belong.


The Kiernan Gallery
23B West Washington St
Lexington, VA 24450
