“The feeling of the rural night”

Every other year, the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock hosts a juried photography exhibition, Illuminance. The theme of this year’s show is “The feeling of the rural night”; the juror was Rixon Reed, of Santa Fe’s photoeye gallery.

I am very happy to announce that I had three images selected to be part of the show, and one of the images was awarded an Honorable Mention.

You may have seen earlier versions of these images here on the blog.

Illuminance 2015 will open to the public on Friday, June 26th at the Buddy Holly Center. A closing reception, with gallery talk by Juror Rixon Reed, will take place at 3 PM on Saturday, August 15th. Stop by if you get a chance.

  1. These are phenomenal and it is quite obvious how an honorable mention is due justice. Stunning!


  2. Fantastic, beautiful photos.


  3. Haunting; great shot!


  4. Melinda, congratulations on having three of your images selected for the exhibition and for the honorable mention! Beautiful photographs indeed.


  5. Reblogged this on Simple Moments Blog by Frank J. Casella and commented:
    Some stunning photography from Melinda Green Harvey. Congrats on these being selected by the Luminance exhibition!!!


  6. Well done, Melinda! Congratulations. All three are spectacular. I think I remember the first one, which I loved the first time and now even more.


  7. Congratulations! What an honor. And the photographs are fantastic.


  8. Quite a set of inspired shots – congratulations!


  9. Fantastic shots. Congratulations! Well deserved!


  10. Congratulations Melinda – if you wore a cap, this would be a feather or three to put in it.

    I like that top one in colour – nice to see it again.

    As I look up from my monitor I see the middle shot framed on my wall, but in monochrome. The honourable mention justifies my choice of that print! And, I am not sure which I like better but it might be the colour one.


  11. Congratulations, and well deserved! Wonderful images


  12. Very well done, Melinda. That’s a terrific threesome – what pity it is so far away.
