The SE Center for Photography is looking for non-representational imagery, though it can be from found objects in nature, man made or figurative works. We’re seeking images that do not attempt to represent external reality, but seek to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and texture. Black-and-white or color, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
All photographers of any age or location may enter. All images submitted must be those of the submitter. Please do not submit images previously selected for a SE Center of Photography exhibition within two years of this scheduled exhibition
Our juror for Abstract ‘20 is Blue Mitchell. Blue Mitchell is an independent publisher, curator, educator, and photographer. Mitchell is the Founding Editor of Diffusion: Unconventional Photography, an independent, reader and contributor supported annual that highlights and celebrates unconventional photographic processes and photo related artwork. Mitchell also curates Plates to Pixels, an online photographic gallery that bridges the gap between antiquated photographic processes and new digital media.
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, South Carolina’s First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.
Juror selects the final number of images to be included in the exhibition. In the rare occurrence an insufficient number of images are selected, the Director of the SE Center reserves the right to include additional images from those submitted.
