REMINDER: Show Some Skin
Chicken skin is bizarre. I frequently buy chicken in bulk then take it home and clean it. Skinning chicken still freaks me out. Clearly, I’ll could never have married into the Alaska: The Last Frontier family. Peach skin gives me the willies too. I think it is a textural issue. Luckily, this next Call is all about skin of the non-chicken variety. The deadline is just around the corner…
Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Skin. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($24), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…
*Editor’s Note: If you enter, please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on ArtAndArtDeadlines.com. We’ve got a great history with them…including Best of Show!
CALL for ENTRIES:
The undulating landscape
of the human form
is one of the most
variable in nature.
With so many sizes, shapes, textures, and tones, our subject matter is endlessly inspiring. How we see, interpret, re-define, and then represent the figure in our photographic work is as diverse as the individuals we celebrate. Show Darkroom Gallery the Bodies you’ve portrayed through your photographic eye.
ELIGIBILITY: Entrants must be at least 18 years old. If younger, you must have a legal guardian make the submission for you.

JUROR: Allen Birnbach has worked as a Photographer for over 30 years; from product to non-profit, hospitality to finance and to the performing arts, he has found great success in commercial Photography. His clarity of vision as a professional Photographer flows through his portraiture, lifestyle, landscape and dance portfolios, as well.
The breadth of these achievements may be viewed at www.allenbirnbach.com. Birnbach’s body of work represents much more than commercial. Begin by viewing his fine art photography on www.birnbachimages.com, then visit www.birnbachfigureworks.com for extraordinary examples of the fine art nude.
