Art League Rhode Island Call for Photography

Call for Entry – Through The Lens – An Open Juried International Photography Exhibition
ALRI/The VETS Gallery, One Avenue of the Arts, Providence, RI 02903

Through The Lens is your opportunity to exhibit the best of your photographic creations—the ones that make you or others say, “Wow!”  Let loose your vision and creativity for a fun show that allows for diverse art, but does not require it.  Your art may range from a well-composed still life black and white print to a colorful action-oriented triptych on metal to an innovative 3D arrangement of images, light, and other materials. Share the photographic work that you take pride in creating with an international community through both a gallery and web-based juried exhibit.

Photography from any genre, medium, substrate, process or perspective— contemporary, historical, experimental, or futuristic—is eligible. The art may be 2D or 3D.  All art must have photography as its dominate element as determined solely by ALRI.

Artwork previously exhibited with ALRI is not permitted. All work must be original. Work found to be copied from copyrighted work will not be hung.  Reprints are not permitted. All work must be exhibition ready to install with the appropriate hardware. No saw-tooth hangers or clips. No dark colored mats. Work that does not adhere to the guidelines, or is deemed not to be a faithful representation of the image submitted, will not be exhibited.  Artwork must be appropriate for viewers of all ages. Deadline is November 1st. For more information, click here.
