Call for Entries: Lines: Walked and Crossed and Otherwise, Vermont PhotoPlace

Deadline: November 19, 2012

Juror: Kirsten Rian

Lines. They are all around us, Look up. Look down. Real lines are everywhere, from telephone wires to sidewalk crevasses. But there are metaphorical lines in our lives, too. Lines drawn in the sand, punch lines, age lines. For this juried exhibition, we are interested in photographs in any style or medium featuring lines of any kind. We welcome esteemed photography curator, writer and editor Kirsten Rian as juror. Kirsten will select forty photos for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from January 29th through February 23rd, 2013.. She will also choose an additional thirty-five photos for the gallery’s “Online Annex.” All selected work will be included in a full-color 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: $25 for five photos, $6 each additional photo.
