Daydreams and Night Lights
A Radiant Aberration Photography Exhibition

Submissions are now closed.


This exhibition will explore the creative imagination. What oddity or mirage do you picture during the day? Have you captured apparitions or things that go bump in the night? We are looking for everything from your beautiful hallucinations and stories to nightfall scenes. We encourage experimentation through technique, process, and concepts in photography.

Radiant Aberration has partnered with zoneFIVE to present this juried photography exhibition. ZoneFIVE is an active arts space hosting exhibitions, events, and workshops, and is home to MS Art Conservation, the Pikes Peak Art Council, COS Art Closet, and working artist studios.

Juror: Sandra Klein

Sandra Klein is an artist whose images, whether captured with a camera or composited, portray a layered world which, though filled with anxiety and trauma, still is rich with joy. She was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and received a BFA from Tyler School of Fine Art in Philadelphia, PA, and an MA in Printmaking from San Diego State University.  Her images have been shown throughout the United States and Abroad and she has had one-person shows at the Griffin Museum of Photography, both the Lishiu and Yixian Festivals in China, Studio Channel Islands, the A Smith Gallery in Texas, and Photographic Gallery SMA in San Miguel Allende, Mexico.  She was the recipient of the Lorser Feitelson Grant jointly with artist Betye Saar. 

Her work has been featured on Lenscratch, The Boston Globe, A Photo Editor, What Will You Remember, Musee Magazine, All About Photo Magazine, Dek Unu, Beta Magazine, and Diffusion Magazine, and is held in public and private collections. 

She is represented by Photographic Gallery SMA in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
