    Green is everywhere. It’s the most common color in the natural world. It’s the color we associate with money, the environment, and aliens, and it’s the color of revitalization and rebirth. It also carries negative connotations, as with envy, greed, nausea, and poison. The green we see in nature is the color of of chlorophyll, the “magic” substance that converts sunlight to energy, and thus sustains almost all life on earth.
    Kermit the Frog famously declared that “It isn’t easy being green”, but we think it shouldn’t be too hard to find a way to make green the primary compositional element in your photos. Green landscapes are almost too easy – unless you can find a new point of view. Trees, plants of all kinds, insects, too. The human environment is rife with green, from lights to painted signs to vehicles; the literal possibilities are nearly endless. The figurative possibilities are nearly endless as well, so see if you can use green to evoke an emotion, a feeling, a sensation.
    For this exhibition we’re looking for images that creatively explore greenness, green in all its many guises. We’re inviting you to color outside the lines… as long as you’re coloring in green.
