This year, I've been curating a landscape photography exhibition for the Oregon Historical Society. "Place: Framing the Oregon Landscape" opens on November 8th and runs through mid-May, 2015. The show features ten artists: Bobby Abrahamson, Jody Ake, Steven Beckly, Susan Bein, Chris Bennett, Thomas Homolya, Joseph Glasgow, Christine Laptuta, Stu Levy, and Raymond Meeks.
Here's the fun part - you can be a part of the show! Throughout the six-month exhibit, there will be a slideshow displaying images sent in by the community. In keeping with the theme of the show, images must be landscape photographs taken in the lovely state of Oregon. Not an Oregon resident? That's okay! If you've visited the state and have images to share, you may participate. How to submit? Simply post your images on Instagram tagged with #ohsplace. I'll be curating the slideshow continuously, selecting new images to add to the big screen at OHS.
The show doesn't open until November, but you can begin submitting your Instagram images at any time. The more, the merrier! Selected images will be screened with photographers' Instagram names during the exhibition. Mountains, molehills, sparkling rivers, pristine deserts, environmental degradation, images of the elusive Sasquatch foraging in the woods - you name it, I want to see it! I can't wait to see your photographs of Oregon.
p.s. There is no real deadline for entering your images. I'll be adding new images to the slideshow throughout the exhibition. So, there's plenty of time to submit!
