News from LOOK3 -- the Festival of the Photograph
The folks behind LOOK3, the Festival of the Photograph, in Charlottesville, Virginia, will be staging their next signature event in 2015, but they have been busy lately with a host of activities.
Victoria Hindley has taken over as Executive Director of the Festival, bringing an extensive background in arts management and promotion.
There is a new website, here.
As for programming, two events are coming up this summer in Charlottesville.
Starting on May 16th and running through July 8th, LOOK3 will transform Charlottesville's historic downtown into an immersive public art space featuring the work of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore.
Sartore will give an Artist's Talk on June 18th, at 7.30pm in Charlottesville's Paramount Theater.

Plans are also in place for this summer's LOOKbetween and LOOK3 Mentorship Programs, focusing this year on 2 days of programming set for June 12th and 14th at Deep Rock Farm, a spectacular setting nestled in the Shenandoah Valley.
Tickets are on sale now for two evenings of dinner parties and outdoor projections featuring the work of emerging photographers from around the world.

The LOOK3 Festival is a splendid festival, worthy of our support and attendance.
