Some fun news - I just juried an exhibit for LightBox Photographic Gallery here on the foggy Oregon coast, and I’m jurying another for PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury Vermont (call for entry details are just below).
The exhibition themes are wonderful: gratitude and sanctuary.
“In Gratitude” will run at LightBox from November 10th - December 5th, with the exhibition opening on the 10th from 5-8pm. I’ll be there and would love to see you if you’re in the area! The images I selected are filled with heart and soul - it’s definitely a feel-good show.
If the theme “sanctuary” is calling to you, the PhotoPlace Gallery call for entries is open until December 17th. You can learn more about the theme and submit your images right here.
Not only will there be a beautiful exhibit at the gallery (February 7th - March 9th), but there will be a permanent online exhibit, and two photographers will be awarded a portfolio review with me (via Skype). I’m so looking forward to seeing the submitted work. Last time I juried for PhotoPlace, we had the most gorgeous selection (you can see that show here).
I always tell my students that it’s best to enter competitions run by organizations with missions you really support - the kind of organizations you’d happily give donations to. When you do that, you feel great about your contribution whether or not you get into the exhibit, and you feel like you’re actively contributing to the kind of world you’d like to live in. More healthy arts organizations? Yes, please.
Hope to see you (or one of your beautiful images) at the shows!
