The Buddy Holly Center presents its biennial competitive photography exhibition Illuminance, a juried exhibition featuring photographic work from around the nation, displayed in the Fine Arts Gallery now through August 10, 2013.

This year's juror, Diana Dopson, is an artist and art historian from Austin, Texas. Her work as an artist primarily explores the nature of vision, ways of seeing, the interconnectedness of living things, the collecting and cataloguing of nature and alternating visions of wild and cultivated landscapes.

Ms. Dopson received two undergraduate degrees from the University of Texas at Austin, her M.F.A. in photography and her M.A. in art history from the University of Oregon, with a concentration in Italian Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

In 1998, she completed the Corso Internazionale sull'Architettura di Andrea Palladio in Vicenza, Italy, in which she photographed every building by Palladio in the Veneto.

Ms. Dopson has always found that in-between places hold artistic promise. She chose the theme "Experiencing Place" for the exhibition, requesting that artists submit images that are emotional and atmospheric, conveying a sense of what makes a place special, magical or extraordinary.

There will be a Gallery Talk by Ms. Dopson on Saturday, August 10th at 3 p.m.
