Perfectly Imperfect Studios is proud to present curated by Gallery Director, LaTwanna Williams.

You are invited to Explore and Respond to having or lacking Serenity. According to the dictionary Serenity means: the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. What happens when we have reached a place of complete Serenity? What happens when we lack or are operating in a space where Serenity in not present? Understanding that this broad topic is full of different interpretations, you are challenged to make a statement with your art to respond to what it means to be in, a part of, on the receiving end of, or having lack of Serenity. This theme is open to your own creative interpretations! 


This exhibition is open to living, US based photographers, at any stage in their career, in the following genre: Contemporary Photography.
