• Illuminations: The Photographers of Cascadia - an exhibition presented at the Jansen Art Center this autumn - will be an artistic gathering that is without precedent in Northwest Washington. Including more than 100 photographs, the exhibition will feature invited artists from among the photographers whose work has been published in Adventures Northwest Magazine over the last ten years.

    The exhibition will run from October 20, 2002 – January 6, 2023.
    Artwork will need to be dropped off on Monday, October 17 (or earlier – by prior arrangement) and an opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 20. Artwork will be picked up on Saturday, January 7.

    We are asking all photographers to submit 10 images for consideration of inclusion no later than July 1. All images should depict subject matter from “Cascadia”, defined for this purpose as Washington, Oregon or British Columbia.
