LENOIR — Photographers from Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, and Catawba counties are invited to enter the Exposures Photography Competition, a program of the Caldwell Arts Council.

The competition is open to adult artists, ages 18 and older, who live in Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, and Catawba counties.
