CALL for ENTRIES: Altered
I love to alter recipes. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn’t. I love to test how far I can push the limits. Bok choy instead of napa cabbage, dates instead of figs, lemon instead of lime. Just stay in the family tree, and you’ll be fine. This next call wants to know how you alter photographs. Don’t miss this chance…
Check out this Call for Art Entries for Altered a alternative process photo show at Open Shutter Gallery (Durango, Colorado). Enter your photographs for $25, but be sure to make the September 15th deadline!

ENTRY FEE: First three entries: $25, each additional entry is $5 each.
JUROR: Mark Sink is a photographer, curator, and teacher who has made a living from fine art photography since 1978. Sink lived in NYC in the 80s. He worked with and documented the lives and works of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Rene Ricard, and other art luminaries of that decade.
In the early 1990s, Sink was an inspirational driving force and co-founder of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. In recent years, Sink has worked as a private art consultant in Denver, independently curating a wide range of shows.
Photography runs deep in Sink’s family heritage. Sink’s great-grandfather was photographer James L. Breese, who was the founder of the Camera Club of New York, one of the earliest organizations of fine art photographers. Even further back, Breese’s uncle— Samuel Finley Breese Morse—is known as “the father of American photography”.
AWARDS: Cash awards and alternative process supplies will be awarded.
SALES: A 50% commission will be retained on all artwork sold during the exhibition. Works should be priced accordingly and may not be changed after submission. Selected artists are encouraged to mat works in white and frame with black.
