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.
In our juried exhibition prospectus' we state the possibilty of a solo show as a result of participating in a juried exhibit. In 2017, two of our five invitational shows featured photographers whom participated in juried shows, and two more are scheduled in 2018.

Home, domicile, a dwelling-place. We're looking for notions of home reinterpreted by the artist...a defining image that speaks to the idea of home, whether a memory, a marker, or a revelation.
