Howdy, kiddies! This is the project I have been putting my heart into for the last several months: designing and implementing a digital photo juried exhibition that is great for the gallery and fantastic for the artists. What started as a project for the "Arts in Community Service" course became a reality. Please pass this info on to your photographer friends. 621 Gallery is a non-profit organization and relies heavily on word of mouth (or e-mail as the case may be). Broadcasting to the masses would be greatly appreciated too!
Call to Artists: Hands Off! digital photo juried exhibition at 621 Gallery
Hands Off! is an international digital photography exhibition showing a new phenomenon in art: the ability for the artist to create a finished piece without ever touching the artwork. This juried exhibition gives the opportunity for emerging and well-known artists to show in an established venue possibly across the county or world without the normal astronomical fees involved (printing, framing, crating, shipping, as well as return shipping). If accepted, the artist sends in a digital file that the gallery prints at 8x10 inches and frames at 11x14 inches. During the month long exhibition, over $1000 in cash and prizes will be awarded. This includes the Best of Show, awarded by image-maker and juror Robert Fichter, of $150 and the winning framed print as well as product prizes. All entry money from the exhibition will go to 621 Gallery, Inc, a not-for-profit organization, to help bring contemporary and progressive art to Tallahassee, Florida.
