Call for Entries: Black and White, Vermont Photoplace Gallery

Deadline: December 23rd (deadline extended)
Juror: Karen E. Haas, Lane Curator of Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

For many years, photography was a black and white art. Or sepia and cream, or a range of beautiful grays. This exhibition honors those aspects of photography by seeking monochrome work that does not depend on bright color. Digital prints, traditional gelatin silver work, and alternative process images are all welcome. We are Honored that Karen E. Haas, the Lane Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, will be the juror for this exhibition. As her many years in the field of museum photography attests, Karen is an expert on black and white photography. Karen will choose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery from February March 19th through April 25th. She will also select up to 35 additional photographs for the gallery’s Online Annex. All selected work will be included in an exhibition catalog available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes. Submission fee: $30 for five photos, $7 each additional photo.
