Island image-maker to be featured in Northwest art competition

Bainbridge Island photographic artist Harry Longstreet has been chosen for inclusion in the seventh annual Collective Visions Gallery Show in Bremerton for his image “Ferry to the Prom.”

Longstreet, a long-time island resident and retired television writer, producer and director, has had one-man shows, group shows and had images selected for more than a 160 national and international juried exhibitions. He’s a two-time Merit Award Recipient (Single Image) from Black White Magazine (2010 2012) and Color Magazine (2011 2012).
