WOMEN'S STORIES - TEXT AND IMAGE

EXHIBITION CONCEPT COLLABORATOR - ALEXI BERRY

ENTRY DEADLINE - JULY 15

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 7 - 9 P.M.

Many women have a differenct story, though, the nature of each story is founded in similarity. Me Too and Times Up sprang from women being tired of having to carry the secrets of their stories. Instead, courageously deciding to share their stories with the world. This exhibition is not only a study on that movement but also seeks to give a voice to those who have survived the trauma of abuse. Whether being sexually harrassed, physically assaulted, verbally abused, or simply ignored and overlooked. The stories should be told, stories of experience in the workplace or in a domestic setting. The exhibition will consist of photographic imagery and/or words. Both photographs and text pieces will be printed and exhibited on the gallery walls. The stories shared can range from subtle expressions to bold statements, of your own experience or of someone you know who has experienced such tragedy. The gallery space acts as a platform for women to use their voices through images and text in an act of healing and strength.

Selection will be based upon the individual images and/or text entered by each artist. Artists names can be kept confidential upon request.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.

FLYOVER COUNTRY

SELECTIONS ANNOUNCED - JANUARY 20, MIDNIGHT CST

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 7 - 9 P.M.

The vast expanse of land between the East and West coasts may be one that is often overlooked and referred to as "Flyover Country", although there is tremendous pride found in the people of the American heartland and a strong presence of talented photographers. In this exhibition we are looking to identify photographs with an aesthetic that emerges from the land and culture of the center of America through portraits, documentary approaches, and images of place. By curating a boldly Midwestern story through photographs, we hope to expose visual impressions of how ordinary people, familiar land, and domestic environments establish a truth that speaks to America's strengths, fragility, and even its flaws. At a time when urban and rural parts of the United States are becoming more divided, having an avenue for conversation and mutual appreciation through visual narrative is key. Flyover Country will focus on appreciating the beauty, individuality, and vastness of an aesthetic that is uniquely Midwestern American.

Open to all photographers nationwide in the USA. All photographic media is welcome. Various photographic interpretations will be considered from artists residing in the Midwestern states, as well as artists outside of the region making photographic commentary on aspects of the Midwest.

Selection will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is preferred but optional.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.

FLORA

ENTRY DEADLINE - FEBRUARY 15

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 7 - 9 P.M.

Open to all photographers internationally.

During the spring season of renewal we celebrate plant life in all its forms. FLORA will feature photographs from a spectrum of plant life and flowers that are grown and appreciated in our lives. Flowers in full bloom, or the simple emergence of a blossoming plant is a renewal for the senses after the long winter. An innate aesthetic appreciation is stimulated through the act of gazing at the fascination of flowers and plant life, and capturing this sensation through photography fulfills our universal quest for beauty. All photographic interpretations and styles are welcomed, we are seeking images of flowers and plants from subtle to bold, whether captured through still-life photography or through exploration of nature photography approaches.

Each photograph will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist. Theme based entries are not necessary. A brief artist statement is optional.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.
