REFER   TO    CAFE    FOR    EXPLICIT    INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

 

About This Exhibit:

This event will be a stylistic representation of a creative work, both bearing the distinctive hallmark of each artist’s perspective. “A sight translation” discovering, determining and assigning meaning to what may be an obscure translation or version. A reframing and understanding of what appears to be the same by offering two different perspectives and interpretations. “Permission to see” wherever you are and what you choose to make of it – it’s all in the interpretation.

 “It’s all in the interpretation” will be uploaded to  CAFE  for a Call for photographers and artists.   

 

We are starting with the photographers, jurying these submissions to obtain about 50 + (16 x 20) photographs that will be matted and framed OR produced on metal, acrylic or wood panels for the exhibition.

 

Once we’ve selected our photographers and their images, we will review the artists submissions and select the artists to partner the photographers to share in the interpretation of the same photograph through art in various mediums including painting, collage, ink, pencil, charcoal, oil pastels, mono printing, encaustic, colored pencils or mixed media.

 

The categories for the initial photographic images will be: 
1. Florida Landscapes
2. Pop Art
3. Abstracts / Digital Art
4. Windows & Doors 
 

 

How it works:

 

Photographers can submit up to three submissions for $35.00 to be considered.

The selected photographic image, an interpretative piece will be reconstructed by an artist showing two versions of the same.

The artists will also submit three images of their work for a submission fee of $35.00.

These images should best show their capabilities in various mediums and styles of interdisciplinary work. 

Our jury will hand select the photographer and the artist to partner with one another. 

We are hoping to represent at least 50 partnerships, acquiring 100 works of art and photography in total to auction at the October 30th American Cancer Charity event at Gallery 526.  
 

ARTISTS:

Submit three images of your best work in a variety of mediums and styles to show your versatility.  You will be assigned a photographic partner with a selected image to produce in your choice of mediums. 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT DATES: 

Deadline for entry:   Midnight on August 13, 2021

Juried selection and notification: August 16, 2021

Selected photographer’s images should be emailed to Gallery 526 by: August 18, 2021

Photographic image will then be emailed to the Artist no later than August 20, 2021 giving the artist 41 days to produce the 16 x 20 work of art to be delivered ready to hang to Gallery 526 by September 30, 2021.

The 16 x 20, framed, metal, acrylic or wood panel finished photographs by the photographers must be ready to hang and delivered for installation to the gallery by September 30, 2021.

This is a juried exhibition. Each photographer will be partnered with a hand selected artist for this exhibition. Both will provide their own interpretation of the same image hand selected by our jury and provided by the photographer to Gallery 526 for distribution.
