Queer Artists Take Center Stage at WeHo Photo Competition
The annual, international LGBTQ photography competition, Round Hole Square Peg 4, will be showcasing work by queer artists with a special focus on transgender awareness, people of color, and underrepresented minorities.
The exhibition will be judged by a panel of six jurors (Claudia Bartlett, Paul Bridgewater, Ruben Esparza, Danny Fuentes, Bert Green, and Phil Tarley) with proceeds from live art auctions benefiting Trevor Project and ONE Archives Foundation.
Bartlett, director of Photo LA, and Chris Davies, publisher of Fabrik magazine and director of Fabrik Projects Gallery, will be selecting the artists in the competition for two special recognition awards.
The exhibition debuted at Photo LA in January, and will transfer to the City of West Hollywood's Plummer Park Gallery from February 8 to March 4, with a special opening and closing night reception.
