"Bringing Art to the People and People to the Arts"

The National Juried Photography Exhibition at The Blue Ridge Arts Center opens on March 17, 2023 and closes on April 21. The exhibition is open to all photographers in the United States. This exhibit is held in the Blue Ridge Arts Center’s Main Gallery, located at 111 E. South Second Street in Seneca, South Carolina.


Rick Haley is a contemporary landscape and nature photographer who has refined his craft over the last 45 years. Based in Northern California near the San Francisco Bay Area, Rick has worked as a Photographic Workshop and Darkroom Instructor, specializing in Zone System Photography. As a guest speaker for the Arts and Photographic department of Solano College, Rick regularly offered advice and support for aspiring artists as they began to navigate professional, commercial and fine art photography. Rick acted as a test consultant for Ciba-Geigy where he provided feedback on the Cibachrome printing process. Rick Haley is best known for his large format black and white images and his unique printing style; however, he is also highly respected for his broad technical photographic expertise. Rick’s images have been displayed across Northern California, including at the Dynasty Fine Art Galleries of Union Street in San Francisco and Danville, California. Now retired, Rick continues to enjoy his love for photography and regularly travels across the West and Southwestern regions of the United States in search of landscape images.
