Photo Finish: Juried Photography Exhibition
On display in von Stade Gallery from November 5, 2021 to February 20, 2022.
The online exhibition will be available through Fall 2022.
The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame is pleased to present the third annual Photo Finish juried photography exhibition. This year's exhibition (both in the von Stade Gallery and the 15 online-only entries) features the work of 49 photographers from 14 states (California, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin). The selected photographs document the entire racing experience, from the farm to the backstretch to the winner's circle, including several images that showcase how Covid-19 impacted the racing world in 2020.
Amateur and professional photographers could submit up to two photographs for consideration and were encouraged to be as creative as possible with their submissions. The only requirement was that each submitted photograph must relate to the sport of Thoroughbred racing in America. A panel of judges representing both the racing and arts communities selected the photographs for exhibition. This year's jurors included Louise Kerr (Executive Director, Saratoga Arts), Shannon Luce (Director of Communications, The Jockey Club), Skip Dickstein (Eclispe Award-winning photographer), Sally Jeffords (National Museum of Racing trustee, chair of the Collections & Exhibits Committee), and Cate Masterson (Director, National Museum of Racing).
Thank you to everyone that expressed interest or participated in our Photo Finish exhibition; the call for submissions for the fourth annual exhibition will be announced in early 2022.
