CALL for ENTRIES: Portfolio Show
I don’t cook a lot. I feel confined by cooking a specific meal for the same audience day in and day out. So, my husband does most of the cooking. But, brunch is a different story. Typically if we are cooking brunch (as opposed to dining out), we have guests over in celebration. Plus, brunch offers an opportunity to show of skills and creations that span breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert–my whole portfolio, if you will. This next call wants to see YOUR whole portfolio. Take a look…
Check out this Call for Entries for The Portfolio Show from the Kiernan Gallery (Lexington, Virginia). The entry is high compared to what I normally published, but I want you to make the decision about value to your own career. If the shoe fits…

CALL for ENTRIES:
Every photograph tells a story. When part of a body of work, the photograph takes on a new meaning, becoming part of a bigger and more complete narrative. A portfolio allows the photographer to explore the complexities of their subject, and provide context that gives it richness and meaning that is more than the sum of its parts. The Kiernan Gallery is pleased to announce its first annual portfolio showcase.
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists
MEDIA: All photographic media are encouraged.
DEADLINE: April 26, 2012
ENTRY FEE: Non-refundable fee of $75
JUROR: For over twenty years Dan Estabrook has been making contemporary art using a variety of 19th-century photographic techniques. Recently he has focused on the earliest paper photographs – calotype negatives and salted paper prints – as sources for hand manipulation with paint and pencil. He balances his interests in photography with forays into sculpture, painting, drawing, and other works on paper.
Dan has exhibited widely and has received several awards, including an Artist’s Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts in 1994. He is also the subject of a recent documentary by Anthropy Arts. He is represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago, Daniel Cooney Fine Art in New York and Jackson Fine Arts in Atlanta. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
AWARDS: Eight photographers will be selected for the exhibition, split into two shows. Four will show at a time. The first four will show from June 6 – July 14, the other four will show from July 18 – August 25 (groups to be determined by the gallery).
SALES: Artists exhibiting at the gallery may offer their work for sale. The Kiernan Gallery retains 30% of the sale price as commission.
