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.

monochrome

Monochrome Photography, images produced with a single hue, rather than recording the colors of the object that was photographed. The SE Center is looking for all forms of Monochrome imagery, black-and-white and toned photography- all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for Monochrome is Michael Foley. He opened his NYC Foley Gallery in the fall of 2004 after fourteen years of working with notable photography galleries including Fraenkel, Howard Greenberg and Yancey Richardson.

His personal art making practice is equally inspired by photography, collage, cut paper and painting.  In 2006, he brought artists within these disciplines to the list of exhibiting gallery artists. Foley went on to co-found The Exhibition Lab in the fall of 2009.  The Ex Lab is a study center for people involved in various aspects of fine art photography. 

Foley continues his interest in educating by serving on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts and the International Center of Photography where he teaches and lectures on issues in contemporary photography.

5-40 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, may be purchased from the artist for inclusion in the SE Center's collection.
