We live in a great city. Some still call it the Flour City, while others refer to it as the Flower City. But to many of us, Rochester, NY is the “Image City of the World.” This of course, is thanks to George Eastman, whose legacy as the founder and CEO of Kodak is part of our history–one historically rich photography.
To that end, Image City Photography Gallery, located at 722 University Avenue in Imagine Square, is a perfect venue for taking in the vibrant local visual arts scene thanks to its rotating schedule of featured exhibitions. With the gallery in the heart of ARTWalk within the the Neighborhood of the Arts, you’ll find yourself fully immersed in an engaging concentration of visual and performance-based art–the likes of which are unmatched anywhere else in Western and Upstate New York.
We love that anyone with a passion and portfolio in photography can submit their work for featured exhibition. Plus, photographic artists can rent exhibition space to show their works on panels throughout the gallery. If you have a knack for creatively capturing images using light as your brush, it’s a fabulous place to begin sharing your work. Even if you aren’t someone to take up art behind the lens of a camera, visiting Image City Photography Gallery is a great chance to connect with the local art scene. It’s possible you might even find work by someone you know–but whose artistic talents you had never before seen.
Coincidentally, viewing artistic photography can often inspire you to visit places you might have never before considered. By supporting Image City Photography Gallery, we can help expand upon the exposure of our area’s beauty, and bring awareness to photographic artists in town. We’re truly thankful to have such a great gallery in the heart of Rochester, NY.
