The Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony will be held Friday, May 11, 5:30 – 7:30 pm. General admission for the reception is $10, and the event is free for Museum Members.

The Weston Scholarship keeps the traditional process of black and white fine art photography alive in the tradition of Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. The Museum connects our community to this legacy by showcasing the next generation of Monterey County photographers. The Weston Scholarship was established in 2004 by Gina and Kim Weston to support high school and college students studying fine art photography in Monterey County, and is specifically focused on students practicing analogue black and white photography. Both Gina and Kim wish to foster photographic education as a way of nurturing a medium they love. They offer students, artists, educators and the community the opportunity to experience the richness of photography through scholarships, mentorships, exhibitions, workshops, publications, lectures, video and artists in residence.

The Monterey Museum of Art maintains a distinguished collection of California Central Coast photography. MMA connects our community to this photographic legacy by showcasing the next generation of Monterey County photographers.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
