Call for Entries: The Nature of Trees. PhotoPlace Gallery

DEADLINE: Midnight, Monday AUGUST 22nd

Submission Instructions

Trees are essential to our well-being in so many ways. They produce oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide. They provide shelter and keep soil from eroding. We build our houses from them, read books printed on the paper they provide. And they nourish our hearts as beautiful elements of the landscape and metaphors for life.

PhotoPlace Gallery is honored that Sean Kernan will serve as the juror for the exhibition “The Nature of Trees.” For this exhibition Sean will choose forty photographs featuring trees in any form for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from October 11 through November 5. He will also choose an additional thirty-five photos for the gallery’s “On-Line Annex.” All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue 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.
