I have been on a personal voyage for the past 9 months, and there is no end in sight.  My father died in December, betrayed by his body and love of food that didn’t love him back.  My grandmother struggles with Alzheimer’s and the loss of both her memory and her appetite.  I have been battling my health and grappling with the loss of my decades-long love affair with wheat.  I can’t help but believe that it is all a voyage taking me to some unknown path that will be my future.  The voyage has already spurred new art.  Let the theme of this next Call take you on your own personal voyage.  Don’t miss the opportunity…

Check out this Call for Entries for Voyages from the Kiernan Gallery (Lexington, Virginia). The entry fee is very reasonable, and the theme is a classic regardless of distance or perspective. Take a look…

For many, the spirit of adventure plays an enormous role in their passion for photography.  Whether traveling within your native land or abroad, leaving home with a camera puts a more critical set of eyes on our surroundings.  Photographs of exotic landscapes and cultures, and the people and places encountered along the way broaden our understanding of the world we live in. For Voyages, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images of your explorations away from home.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists

MEDIA: Photography: Alternative processes, digital, traditional, and toned images are all eligible.

SALES: Kiernan Gallery no longer takes commission on sold works. But, they DO still have incentive to sell your work. The Kiernan Gallery was founded by an emerging artist, and recognizes the importance of selling work; they believe that if artists are paying a submission fee, the gallery should not also take a portion of the sale. They do reserve the right to negotiate 20% in order to make a sale.
