The Show: “Travelers on Tenn” is the fourth annual juried photography show hosted by
Tenn Street ART in Denver, Colorado. This year’s show also coincides with the international
event, Month of Photography. MoP - Month of Photography Denver is a celebration
of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout
Denver and the region March and April 2013. For more Month of Photography information visit:  http://mop2013.blogspot.com

Show’s Theme: Journey, pilgrimage, escape, trek, junket, odyssey... there are many
ways and reasons to travel. Whether it be a trip of the body, an object moving in space
or an inner journey of the mind - your interpretation of movement from one place to the
next is what we are looking for. The images may be concrete or abstract, realistic or
fantasy, you decide. Your photographic technique can be traditional, digital, experimental
or a mixture - we are open. Take us around the block or on a ride in your imagination,
we’re ready to go!

The Venue: Tenn Street ART - a surprising destination for vital artwork - is located
inside Tenn Street Coffee & Books in Denver, Colorado. We hosts monthly art shows
featuring both emerging and seasoned artists. Our gallery is an active member of the
Tennyson Street Cultural District and a participant of the Denver city-wide First Friday
Artwalk. Our shows range from unique solo exhibits to exciting and creative juried
group events. Sharon Meriash, a Denver photographer and artist, curates Tenn Street
ART's shows along with invited jurors.

photographic processes since 1992. She has participated in workshops and
