Call for Artists: “Alternative Process Photography” at the Berkeley Art Works
*** No Entry Fee ***
(Accepted artists are asked to make a donation when the work is delivered.)
The Berkeley Arts Council announces “Alternative Process Photography” to showcase historical photographic processes being preserved by a small number of artist-practitioners. We seek entries of all historic processes including but not limited to platinum, palladium, cyanotype, van dyke brown, wet plate, ambrotype, tintype, etc. Also includes silver gelatin prints. We look for processes where the final print or image is produced through chemical darkroom processes by hand. However, we will accept work that originates as a digital capture if the final print is created by hand through one of the historic printing processes from a negative.
Prints/images presented up to 20 inches in the long dimension (framed) are acceptable. The exhibit will be displayed from July 10 – August 3, 2019 in the Back Space at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, WV.
Work accepted for the exhibit must be properly framed, including wires for hanging, or otherwise prepared for display.
Entries are by digital images. You may submit one or two images. Digital images should be at least 1200 pixels on the long dimension.
Begin by entering the information about yourself and your submissions. Please be sure to include the process/technique in the appropriate place in the entry form.
EXTENDED Deadline June 27, 2019
When you submit the form you will be given a link to upload your digital images.
Deadline for entries June 27, 2019. There is no entry fee. Accepted artists will be notified by email. Accepted artists are asked to make a donation to support the gallery at the time work is delivered. Jurying of the digital submissions will be done by a committee of Berkeley Art Works artists by June 25 and work is to be delivered to the gallery between July 3 and July 6. Detailed instructions will be provided at the time of acceptance. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 304-620-7277.
The Berkeley Art Works, a project of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans.
