First Annual Juried Members’ Spotlight Exhibition – A Call for Entries – Entry has Closed
Thank you to all the Members who submitted work for consideration and for your patience as we navigate changing restrictions to hosting gallery exhibitions. The juror’s selections have arrived and will be posted shortly. We will be presenting the exhibition online and looking for a date in 2021 to mount this as a gallery exhibition.
We are excited to announce that we have added a new exhibition opportunity for our Members… We have extended the deadline and are accepting entries through May 16th!
Entry is free for Supporting Members, $35 for a set of 5 images for Members at all other levels.
This new exhibition is open to all current members and is designed to provide members the chance to have their work featured in an exhibition. This is a chance to present work that carries across a group of images or exhibit a larger selection of images than a typical member show or call for entry allows. The work submitted will be juried as a set, each member is eligible to enter five images, that if selected will be exhibited together.
Building on the positive response from visitors to last year’s Second Annual Juried Member’s Exhibition we have added this Spotlight exhibition as a way to provide a more in depth look at our members. We look forward to providing members the chance to present their work in this May Spotlight exhibition. As in previous years, August will bring our Third Annual Juried Member’s Exhibition where images will be juried individually to provide the opportunity to include a wider cross section of member’s work.
Entry is open and we are honored to have Jesse Burke as the juror for this exhibition.
Entry is via email for current members, full details below.
The Call can be shared through social media @RIPhotoArts.
