Fauna- all the animal life of a particular region. We live with animals daily – wildlife, farmed, caged or free, many are our best friends, some we fear, yet others we admire. Whether it walks, flies, crawls, slithers, swims, the SE Center wants your best animal images.
Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
All photographers regardless of location, age or skill level. Images previously selected for exhibition at the SE Center for Photography within two years of the current exhibition are not eligible.
Our juror for Fauna is Carol Erb. Erb was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The artist attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she studied painting, drawing and printmaking, subsequently receiving a BA from DePaul University.
Erb is best known for creating constructed and staged digital images. Carol’s work has been exhibited at many venues in the US, including The Center for Fine Art Photography, Phoenix Art Museum, and the Center for Photographic Art. Her work has been especially well received internationally, with group and solo exhibits in China, Japan, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
In 2017, the artist was awarded Critical Mass Top 50. Her photographs have been featured in several publications, including Black and White, Fraction, Adore Noir, Shadow and Light, PND, and Adobe Create. In 2018, North Light Press published an editioned book on Erb’s animal series “Dominion”. Carol is represented by the Sophie-Maree Gallery in the Netherlands. She currently resides in Los Angeles, with her husband and their wonderful cat.
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.
Selected images must be matted and framed up to 20 x 24” to professional standards, white mat with simple black metal or wood frame unless prior approval has been obtained. The Center reserves the right to reject any piece not framed to our standards. To avoid shipping costs & headaches, the SE Center for Photography will print your photographs for you upon acceptance. For $15 per image, we’ll print on archival paper and after the show either return the print to you ($15 additional for shipping) or you may choose to donate the image to the Center’s flat file for future access to collectors.
The SE Center for Photography will mat & frame your images at no charge, using our selection of 11×14, 16×20 or 20 x 24 black, metal frames with white, archival mats and conservation clear glass for the exhibitions assuming it will fit one of our standard mats.
