Please join Dallas Center for Photography (DCP) and exhibiting photographers in the DCP community gallery to view the work chosen for the 3rd Annual Members Show, a juried competition and exhibition sponsored by Garland Camera. The opening reception in the DCP community gallery happens on Saturday, December 3 from 6:00-8:00 pm.
Each year since its inception as an arts nonprofit, DCP has highlighted the best work of its members through an annual open call. Juried by Dallas-based artist, educator, journalist, and photographer Michael Mulvey, the third all-members call for entry welcomed submissions of exceptional photographic work without restriction of theme, age, skill levels, or genre of photography. The exhibition and the opening reception are free and open to all! We encourage you to RSVP to let us know you will be in attendance.
“Seeing your photograph on the wall, surrounded by the work of your peers, is a memorable experience -- and one that is not exclusively reserved for just professional photographers,” said Peter Poulides, DCP Executive Director. “As part of DCP’s mission, we honor our members each year with this exhibition and encourage all photo enthusiasts and any first-time image makers to grow their talents and share their passion for photography with the North Texas community.” In addition to entries in members-only exhibitions, DCP members receive access to exclusive members only events, special discounts and many other benefits. Learn more about membership here.
Guest jurist Michael Mulvey’s work is rooted in the visualization of sociological practices. In 2006 as a staff photographer for the Dallas Morning News, Mulvey earned the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “I was very pleased in the caliber and strength of the photos submitted for this exhibition,” said Mulvey. “As a photographer, I’m so pleased that North Texas has been gifted with such a place as Dallas Center for Photography, where anyone interested can learn, grow, and participate in this visual art.”
The 3rd Annual Members Show, sponsored by Garland Camera and Photographic Imaging, will hang in the DCP gallery through Saturday, December 17. Gallery days and hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1pm-6pm, and Fridays from 10am-2pm, or by appointment. The DCP Community Gallery is free and open to all! Dallas Center for Photography is located at 4756 Algiers, Dallas, 75207. For additional information please call 214-630-4909.

About Michael Mulvey
Mulvey, an artist, educator, and photographer, continues his work in journalism where he first started his creative and visual career of storytelling with images. In 2006 while a staff photographer with The Dallas Morning News he earned the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Mulvey’s research interests are rooted in the visualization of sociological practices using methods of documentary-style, alternative process, and conceptually constructed still lifes to create various pathways to access cultural complexities. His practice includes the use of analog and digital devices as well as site-specific installation and photo sculpture. Mulvey’s most recent work features pictograms made in cameraless space on the film of items collected from the land during the gentrification process. They represent the memory of what came before and are now in a permanent visual record formed in historic photographic processes.
Michael holds an M.F.A. in Studio Art from the College of Visual Arts at Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas, and a B.S in Journalism from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.
