CALL FOR "PHOTOGRAPHY UNSEEN" - January 28, 2011
Our culture is inundated by the photographic image. Everyday of our lives we face a multitude of varying photographs. Yet, we rarely contemplate the implications of a single picture. Instead, we have become desensitized and too often this rich form of information is taken for granted. Photography Unseen is an exhibition that invites artists to address this concern via a unique perspective, there are no photographs allowed. The subject is photography but all mediums except the photographic print may be included. Perhaps this strategy will spawn a more dynamic appreciation for something we encounter so often. Open to national and international artists of all levels. Entry fee.
