TOYS AND OTHER DIRECT OBJECTS: Still Life as Subject.
Deadline October 11th
Still life objects hold a special fascination for photographers. For this juried exhibition, we seek photographs that capture the appeal of specific objects on their own or in the environment and with the people for whom they are especially meaningful. Juror Wendy Grossman will select forty forty photographs for exhibition on the walls of PhotoPlace Gallery in August and on the gallery website. An additional thirty-five images will be chosen for PhotoPlace’s “On-Line Gallery 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.
Wendy Grossman is a writer, educator, and curator with an longstanding interest in objects in photographs. Her highly-acclaimed recent exhibition, Man Ray, African Art, and the Modernism Lens, has been touring the country since 2009 and has been seen at a variety of museums, including the Phillips Collection in Washington DC, the University of New Mexico Museum in Albuquerque, and The Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver.
