35TH ANNUAL STORRS ALL HIGH PHOTO SHOW EXHIBITION DATES: April 5—26, 2020. Opening reception is Sunday, April 5 from 2-5PM.

The 35th ANNUAL STORRS ALL HIGH PHOTO SHOW is open to students in grades 9-12 in public and private schools in New York State. Photos may be submitted by photography students, a photography club or individual students who do not have access to in-school darkroom facilities, but ALL photos must be submitted through a teacher. Photographs may be shot with 35mm or digital, but processing must be indicated on the photo labels provided and Gallery Label Form. Processing is either darkroom printed or non-darkroom meaning that the student’s film/ images as well as prints were not produced in a darkroom. Non-darkroom processing includes computer imaging equipment and printers, and commercial photo printers. In 2005, artist and former art teacher, William Storrs passed away. Bill was devoted to bringing visual arts programming to the Kenan Center and helped to create the first All High Photo Show. In his memory, the Kenan Center renamed the Photo Show the “Storrs All High Photo Show.”
