Reflections: Juried Art Exhibit at E3 Convergence, Missoula, Mont. June 3

Reflections-E3-ConvergenceE3 is excited for our summer group exhibit! This time around we asked artists to respond to the theme “Reflections” and the results are an amazing line-up of twenty-two artists with a beautiful variety of 50 artworks plus a selection of coinciding poetry. Some take reflections literally in their physical sense, others explored introspectively, each a hidden gem of the individual’s vision.

Wild Planet Photo Magazine – Issue 23 • September 2015

What makes The September Issue truly special is the emphasis we’ve placed on featuring new work by our readers and followers. The deadline for entries was tight but the response was fantastic with hundreds of images uploaded to our website. The wonderful variety and impressive quality of work submitted made choosing the final selection a very difficult but hugely enjoyable task. The result is now in front of you, with seven special themed photo galleries that I am honoured to share. If you missed out, don’t worry. The September Issue is here to stay! We will definitely do it again next year. In the meantime, enjoy the issue and please spread the word.
