Call for Entries: In Time, Kiernan Gallery

Call For Entry Deadline: October 26, 2011

In Time December 6, 2011 – January 7, 2012

Time is an essential element of science, philosophy, and religion. Nonetheless its definition has continuously eluded the greatest minds. For In Time, The Kiernan Gallery welcomes images that interpret and define Time as subject matter, whether it be in a historical context of the then and now, abandoned structures, time lapse, events and the intervals between them, or a crucial moment, preserved for eternity. In a sense, every photograph is an embodiment of time.

For this exhibition, juror Blake Fitch will select up to 30 images for display in the main gallery and up to an additional 40 to be included in the online gallery. All accepted images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and a Director’s Choice will be announced.

All photographic media are encouraged.
