The PhotoPlace gallery in Vermont is calling for entries for its upcoming exhibition “Water, Elemental and Fundamental” curated by Laura Moya
PhotoPlace Gallery’s mission is to support contemporary fine art photography as a means of creative expression and cultural insight. PhotoPlace Gallery sponsors exhibition opportunities through international juried exhibits in Middlebury, Vermont, through our published exhibition catalogs, and on this website.
Liquid, frozen, or vapor, water in all its forms can be one of nature’s most powerful forces and humans’ most peaceful companions. It occupies 75% of our planet and 65% of our bodies, and it’s become the yardstick by which we measure global warming.
For this exhibition, we seek photographs in any style that tell us more about water.
WATER is scheduled to be on view at PhotoPlace Gallery from September 23 through October 17.
The juror for this exhibition will be Laura Moya of Photolucida. She will choose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery. Laura will also select up to 35 additional photographs for the gallery’s Online Annex.
Submission fee: $30 for five photos, $7 each additional photo.
If your work is selected
To help artists defray costs and to encourage submissions from distant photographers, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes or request a custom mat size. We can also print your images at moderate additional cost.
All selected work will be included in an exhibition catalog, available for purchase.
