“the photographic performance 2018”

Do you have a body of work or a concept for an exhibition that is photography or photography based?  We are looking for compelling solo or cooperative exhibitions to fill our interior salon space.  It can be only photographic images, photography combined with mixed media, photography as sculpture, photography based installations or…..  This is the second year for “the photographic performance” and we are hoping once again you can show us what it can be.

Three exhibition proposals will be selected to be exhibited in the Salon from either April 20 to May 20, 2018, May 25 to June 24, 2018 or June 29 to July 29, 2018.  We will also be selecting seven proposals to be featured on the gallery blog.

Along with each entry application, a written proposal or artist statement explaining the exhibition should be emailed to amanda@asmithgallery.com.  For any questions regarding the size or configuration of the Salon gallery space, please email amanda@asmithgallery.com.
