Exhibition Details: 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. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music. Participating artists that can attend have the opportunity for a Portfolio Review by SE Center Director Michael Pannier on the following Saturday morning (reservations needed).
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.
Selected images must be matted and framed up to 16” x 20” to professional standards, white mat with simple black metal or wood frame unless prior approval has been obtained. The Center reserves the right to reject any piece not framed to our standards. To avoid shipping costs & headaches, the SE Center for Photography will print your photographs for you upon acceptance. For $15 per image, we'll print on archival paper and after the show either return the print to you ($15 additional for shipping) or you may choose to donate the image to the Center's flat file for future access to collectors.
The SE Center for Photography will mat & frame your images at no charge, using our selection of 11x14 & 16x20 black, metal frames with white, archival mats and conservation clear glass for the exhibitions assuming it will fit one of our standard mats.
