The say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what if you only had six?

Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway made a bet with friends that he could craft an entire story in six words. Hemingway won the bet with “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

In a collaboration between the Front Porch Gallery and Oceanside Museum, a diverse group of juried photographers explore the intersection of text and image by bringing their own six-word stories to life.

Half of the exhibit will take place at the Front Porch Gallery and the other at the Oceanside Museum, with the collections switching locations after October 5. We invite you to attend both receptions in order to enjoy the full exhibition.

Aug. 25–Nov. 2, 2019 at Front Porch Gallery
Aug. 27–Nov. 24, 2019 at Oceanside Museum of Art
