Artist’s Reception at the Triton

On Sunday, November 19, the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara hosted an Artist’s Reception in the afternoon to kick off their Winter Exhibitions. One of the exhibitions on display is the Salon at the Triton: 2D Art Competition and Exhibition, which received more than 1,000 entries this time.

The jurors selected approximately 125 works for inclusion in the exhibition, and, among these, 37 were photographs. The Richard Dischler Photo Workshop had a strong presence at the event, with 11 of the 37 selected photographs belonging to ten current workshop members. If we also consider the works from former workshop members, then 14 out of the 37 photos were created by twelve current and former RDPW members. Congratulations!

Richard and the current workshop members with photos on display at the Triton: Fred Carter, Thomas Laye, Golnaz Abdoli, Daniel Vaquero, René Sterenthal, Craig Colvin, George Herman, Kim Lien Dang, Paul Italiano, and Bernard Lint (not in the picture)
