GUELPH, ON, September 24, 2012 –  Guelph Civic Museum’s newest exhibit, featuring the top 30 mobile phone photographers selected by the organizers of guelPhonography , opens on Friday, September 28, 2012 with a reception at 7:00 p.m.

“We’re thrilled to host Guelph’s first exhibition of photography dedicated solely to images shot on mobile phones, says museum director Katherine McCracken. “It’s a first for the museum, and indeed for Guelph.”

According to guelPhonography organizing committee member, Dr. Mark Kubert,  the large number of excellent shots submitted by Guelphites made selecting the exhibitors a challenge. “We’re thrilled with results and look forward to sharing them with the rest of the city, “says Kubert. “The response to this grassroots effort has been amazing and marks the beginning of what we hope will become an annual event showcasing the uniqueness and beauty of Guelph.”

The three winning photographs will be announced at the exhibit’s opening. The exhibit will run at the museum from September 28th to November 19th, 2012.

In celebration of Culture Days and as part of this month’s Fourth Friday event, admission to the museum is free, beginning at 5:00 p.m. Admission to the 7:00 p.m. exhibition opening reception is free as well.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk St.  For more information, call 519-836-1221 ext. 2773.
