Join us in the DCP community gallery for a first look at the work chosen for the 3rd Annual Members’ juried competition and exhibition, sponsored by Garland Camera!
Each year since its inception as an arts nonprofit, DCP has highlighted the best work of its members through an annual open call. Juried by Dallas-based artist, educator, and photographer Michael Mulvey, the third all-members call for entry welcomed submissions of exceptional photographic work without restriction of theme, age, skill levels, or genre of photography.
The in-person reception will be hosted on Saturday, December 3 from 6pm-8pm. This reception is free and open to all! We encourage you to RSVP to let us know you are coming.

VC Torneden, American Dreamin’
Artist, Educator, and Photographer. Michael Mulvey’s work is rooted in the visualization of sociological practices.
His research interests range from capturing the cultural divide along the border with Mexico to the gentrification of West Dallas Neighborhoods, using methods of the documentary, alternative process, and conceptually constructed still lives to create various pathways to access cultural complexities. His practice includes the use of analog and digital devices as well as site-specific installation and photo sculpture. His most recent work features pictograms made in cameraless space on the film of items collected from the land during the gentrification process. They represent the memory of what came before and are now in a permanent visual record formed in historic photographic processes.
Michael continues his work in journalism where he first started his creative and visual career of storytelling with images. Earning the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in 2006 while a staff photographer with The Dallas Morning News. The award was for coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, America’s most costly weather event, and the beginning of the global warming trend resulting in extreme energy super storms.
Michael holds an M.F.A in Studio Art from the College of Visual Arts at Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas, and a B.S in Journalism from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.
