Show of Video-based Photography at RNAC, Gloucester, MA, January 2014

As curator of a show of video-based photography at one of the oldest US art colonies, the Rocky Neck Art Colony, Gloucester, MA, I would like to invite submissions for a show of printed and framed high quality animation stills, to be shown in January of 2014, possibly with a simultaneous show of the animations the stills are derived from at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, Rockport, MA. While I welcome the "liberation of the image from the frame" in visual music, I think that showing quality stills is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if the images can be shown together with the animations from which they stem.

Since shipping framed work is expensive and hazardous, I plan to have the work selected for the show framed locally. The work will be for sale; unsold work will be returned in print form.

Because this is a venture dependent on fund raising that involves two art institutions, this call is a preliminary call rather than an official  invitation to partipate. I would like to assemble a repertory of work from which to select. You can see examples of my work on this site, however, my pieces are not models, just examples: I would like to show a wide variety of work very different from my own.

If interested in this venture please send me the following to :

  1. 5 work samples (jpgs)  up to ½  mb each, 180 dpi, 4x6 inches (1800 x 1200 pixels), landscape or portrait
  2. Naming convention for files (using underscore): First_Lastname_title_size_in-inches.jpg, for example Ann_Howard_2_Enchantment_20x24.jpg
  3. short artist statement (1/2 page)

Once you let me know that you are interested in sending me jpgs (and later prints, to be framed locally), I will keep you in the loop for this adventure.

Many thanks for your interest and Happy New Year!
