“Selby Gardens’ Annual Juried Photo Exhibition is a beloved celebration of our two bayfront sanctuaries through the eyes and camera lenses of our visitors,” said Jennifer O. Rominiecki, president and CEO of Selby Gardens. “Since making this show virtual a couple of years ago, we have been able to accept and display even more high-quality amateur photography of our two campuses and engage more people in viewing these beautiful works of art.”
