Coburn Gallery Posts Call for Entries for Exhibition of Photographs
The Coburn Gallery is hosting a call for entries for a regional juried exhibition of photographs, both traditional and digital, that will be featured in an exhibition titled "Ashland - New Photography." This Ashland exhibition was inspired by the quote"You don't take a photograph, you make it" by famous photographer Ansel Adams and will be a way to showcase Ashland's community of photographers, both professional and novice.
The exhibition will feature two categories: photographs taken by artists 18 and over plus a special category for young artists 17 years and younger. Cash awards will be given to Best in Show in each category as well as two honorable mentions.
The exhibition is open to artists residing in Ashland County, Ohio, only. A maximum of two entries for $15 are allowed per artist 18 years and older, while the entry fee is waived for younger artists.
All work must be original art conceived and executed solely by the artist within the last two years. All artwork must be matted and framed properly and work previously exhibited at the Coburn Gallery is not eligible. Entries will be juried from the actual artworks.
The juror for the exhibition is Jessica Maloney, who received her BFA in Fine Art Photography and MFA in Digital Fine Art from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. She is a tenured associate professor at Ashland University and maintains an active role as a professional artist.
The delivery of entries will be on Tuesday, June 19, from 12 to 6p.m.and Wednesday, June 20, from 12 to 4p.m. The exhibit runs from June 29 through July 31, 2012. There will be an opening reception on Friday, June 29, from 6 to 7p.m. with the awards announced at 6:30p.m. Declined artworks may be picked up on Friday, June 22, from 12 to 4p.m. See www.ashland.edu/coburngallery
