Prizes: participation in the exhibition
“Forsaken” was inspired by Terri Cappucci, a Photographic Artist from Massachusetts who created and curated our first “Forsaken” submission exhibit.
The Forsaken, places and belongings that once mattered, that have been left behind. Things once being of importance to humans …personal items, homes, special places, letters, etc. Anything that has been left behind or replaced . Any place or property that once had the importance to another.
Another approach will be to examine work that pushes the boundaries of the concept, examining things like ownership
and subsequent abandonment, rejection of ideas or ideologies
The SE Center is looking for all forms of imagery of the Forsaken, black-and-white and color, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
All photographers of any age or location may enter.
Our juror for Forsaken is Leslie-Claire Spillman. A graduate in art from Xavier University with a focus in painting and photography, Leslie-Claire Spillman has worked as a gallerist and professional photographer in New Orleans for over 16 years. The longtime Director of Soren Christensen Gallery, Spillman has curated hundreds of show for the space, including 10 years of exhibition offerings in participation with the annual PhotoNOLA festival, for which she has also worked as a portfolio reviewer.
Her photography has been featured in print and group exhibitions, and she has work in the permanent collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art. She works exclusively in portraiture, but is moved by a wide variety of work and seeks to continue connecting artists with exhibition opportunities through her independent curation.
35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville’s, First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music. Participating artists that can attend have the opportunity for a Portfolio Review by SE Center Director Michael Pannier on the following Saturday morning (reservations needed).
