“Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.” Ansel Adams
TAG – The Art Gallery of Cornwall’s goal is to foster a growing community of photographers creating images that stand apart through their creativity, their ability to move people and their capacity for communication. Last year, TAG awarded close to $1,000 in prize money in recognition of the photographic excellence of the top entries. Judges’ Awards will be presented at the Award Ceremony. In addition to the cash awards, a certificate of recognition (non-monetary value) will be awarded at the end of the show after the public cast their vote for their favourite throughout the duration of the exhibition.

“I take numerous photographs and then painstakingly search to find the one that captures my interest. This is true whether I’m painting flowers or people – to me they are all ‘portraits’. My floral paintings are influenced by the late Georgia O’keefe. The close up image brings the viewer a dramatic perspective that evokes an emotional response. My people portraits emulate the play of lights and shadows reminiscent of the old masters like Caravaggio.”
Donna is happy to accept commissions!
