Call for Entries
Down and Out Call for Entries
New Directions, the annual juried photography show at Wall Space Gallery in Seattle, seeks to discover new talent in the world of photography. 23 Sandy is very pleased to host the fourth annual New Directions show in February following its Seattle premier. This year's juror is Carol McCusker, PhD, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) in San Diego.
According to McCusker "The title Down & Out might conjure images of ne'er-do-wells. The call for entries seeks photographs with two points of view, looking down from a high vantage point, and looking out to a vanishing horizon. What I hope the photographs provide, however, is pleasure in the variety of ways 'down' and 'out' can be imaged, and what emotional liberation such points-of-view can have on our often confined and overly responsible psyches. Numerous painters and photographers have employed these vantage points, subsequently, they run the risk of cliché. The optimist in me delights at the disorienting perspective of looking down whereby familiar objects become abstract and dizzyingly beautiful, to looking out, with that forward motion promising adventure or escape."
The show will run from February 5-27, 2010 at 23 Sandy Gallery.
