CALL for ENTRIES: 12 12 International
There are a few things that I simply can’t feed my friends, in-laws, and co-workers. If I were to show up at a party with escargot, the rumors of my impending insanity would abound. In the art world, I have learned that I simply can’t show my work in an area where fine artisan crafts are what sells. Well, this next Call has a juror that I suspect you can’t freak out. Investigate for yourself…
Check out this Call for Entries for the 2012 International Photo Exhibition from the 12 12 Gallery (Richmond, VA). This juror is known for his own visually provocative work, and I know I have work I can’t show ANYWHERE that I plan to enter. How about you?

JUROR: Ignatius Widiapradja, Associate Professor of Art and Design, has been teaching at Drake University since 1985. He has taught studio courses in Painting, Drawing, 2 Dimensional Design, and Digital Photography and Editing.
Professor Widiapradja’s current creative works are primarily in painting and digital print. In his works, the articulation of images and spatial construction form a cohesive multidimensional reality that exhibits a state of constant flux.
It is the mapping of overlapping memories, future projections and multidimensional processes of awareness. In our memories, images, events, feelings, desire, and space happen simultaneously and are inseparable and intertwined. Riveting, provocative, and meticulously articulate in their design, Professor Widiapradja’s digital compositions combine artist-captured images that represent landscape, travel, nature, portrait, studio, commercial, and fine art photography.
His international aesthetic represents the majestic Himalayas, the peoples of Indonesia, Nepal, Bhutan, Buddhist temples, and much more; electronically sewn together to bring new perspective and juxtaposition to familiar objects of nature and human form.
AWARDS: Cash and prizes up to $1000 will be awarded solely at the discretion of the exhibition juror. Recognition of work by Professor Widiapradja may also be designated to the extent he deems appropriate. These designations may not include a cash prize. Also, 12 12 Gallery Director, Martin McFadden, will award a Director’s Choice Award.
SALES: All work must be for sale. 12 12 Gallery will receive a 35% commission.
