The Western Heritage Museum is proud to announce that the Second Annual New Mexico Junior College and Hobbs High School Photography Show is up and running from April 12 - May 3, 2008. The walls of the North Gallery of the Museum are adorned with a variety of photographs taken by NMJC students and faculty and Hobbs High School students.

A total of sixty-four photographs in the categories of Landscape, Nature, People, Macro, Architecture/Transportation, and Computer Manipulated are hanging for viewers' appraisal. These photos await the May 3 awards program to be held at 7 p.m., followed by an auction of the first, second and third place winners. Additionally, all who stop by to see the exhibit can vote for their favorite, the winner of which will be named the People's Choice. Another category, Best of Show, will hang in the Museum for the upcoming year in recognition of the artist.

The Museum would like to recognize those who have supported and put effort into this imaginative event. Organizers include Brian Henning, David Jett, and Calvin Smith.
