HORSE RACE AND HILLCLIMB PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
Sponsored by Livingston Arts, 4 Murry Hill, Mt. Morris, NY
Exhibition December 1-16, 2017
Livingston Arts (GVCA), upstate New Yorks premier non-profit art center and custodian of the New Deal Gallery art collection, proudly announces its first invitational photography exhibition Horse Race and Hillclimb. This unique photography opportunity will highlight two popular local events, Poag’s Hole Hillclimb, Dansville NY, and the Genesee Valley Hunt Races, Geneseo NY. These events initially appear quite different but we are hoping to illustrate not only their differences but also their similarities.
Individual artists will be required to submit a preliminary portfolio of 5-7 images that represent their work.
Selection of final artists for the exhibition will be based on a review of 5-7 images (preferably submitted online to firstname.lastname@example.org). The review committee will invite 10-15 artist to participate in the exhibition. Each will be required to attend both events and to submit 2-3 quality photographs, at least one from each event, to be exhibited in Apartment 1, Livingston Arts Center, Mt. Morris, NY. There are no restrictions in format, but photographs must be professionally presented (framed, matted, drymount) and ready to hang.
TBA Guest juror and their background.
Jury selection will be based on quality of image, creative approach, and personal interpretation of how the events appear to be similar and at the same time different.
