Calls for Entry
Current and upcoming calls for entry.
Typically 35-40 images are selected to hang in the gallery.
A note about our jurors and curators. Yes, we want to hang your work in the gallery and hopefully sell it to a collector. But juried shows are also about exposure. We work with the leaders in contemporary photography, the respected gallerists, publishers and photographers whom you want viewing your images. These are the individuals that can further your career. Move you from an enthusiast to becoming a photographer, from an emerging to a mid career artist.

THE ALTERED WORLD
The Altered World. We want to celebrate photographic manipulation in all it’s forms at the SE Center. Our juror, Claire Rosen, would like to see whimsy and less literal work with a strong concept. Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
Our juror for the Altered World is Clair Rosen, an award-winning artist whose elaborate constructions often feature anthropomorphic animals, archetypal heroines, or symbolic still-lives evoking the aesthetics of classical painting influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and referencing the Victorian Era. The transportive images captivate with a fascination of the natural world and ideals of beauty.
35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date.
In addition, the SE Center announces the SE Center Purchase Award. One image, from those selected for inclusion in the exhibition, will be purchased from the artist for inclusion in the SE Center's collection.
