Imagined Realities  
Tom Chambers, juror
Closes for submissions on Monday, May 23, 2016 
Gallery exhibition July 6 - August 5, 2016   

© Tom Chambers
While photography is often associated with factual representation, its ability to create illusion can introduce us to imaginary and wonderful new worlds. The well-known work of Gregory Crewdson, the dreamscapes of Susan Burnstine, and the creations of our Imagined Realities juror, Tom Chambers, are three prime, and very different, examples.

For Imagined Realities, we seek photographs that in some way combine the real world with the photographer's imagination. All capture methods and processes are welcome.  
 
Juror Tom Chambers has exhibited photomontage images both nationally and internationally in twenty solo exhibitions and over seventy group exhibitions. He is represented by a number of galleries in the United States and Europe, and his work has been shown nationally and internationally through exhibitions and a wide range of print and online publications. His work is in a number of museum and private collections worldwide.

Current members of the TPS Board of Directors are permitted to enter but are not eligible for awards.

Instructions for entry are outlined below, following the juror’s bio and statement.

About the Juror
Reid Callanan, founder and director of Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Reid Callanan is founder and director of the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, currently in its twenty-sixth year offering workshops to the international imaging community. In addition to educational programs in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Havana, Cuba, the Workshops partners with National Geographic to offer photography workshops around the world.

Juror’s Statement
I look at lots of images every day. Probably more than almost anyone in the photographic community, and I find this process exhilarating most of the time. Those few times when I am not so excited about looking at photographs are when the images are poorly crafted and not well considered. If I have to ask myself, "what am I looking at here?" —it's not a good sign. So, offer me photographs that have clarity in terms of what I am looking at and images that are well crafted. The second thing I enjoy is looking at images that surprise me—images I haven't seen before. This is a tough task in this day and age, but if you create images from your personal experience that tap into your emotions and imagination, I will take note and hopefully be surprised. Show me yourself in your photographs or something you are curious about. If I can't see you in your images, then I probably won't look for very long. . . .

Don't miss the opportunity to enter
our next all media juried exhibition    
Entry deadline: May 12, 2016 
 
SERENDIPITY
"Serendipity" is a juried exhibition featuring artworks where unexpected discoveries occurred in the process of/or in connection with art making. This exhibit aims to present artworks that demonstrate how the occurrence of accidents, chance, and discovery benefit the creative process as well as the final artwork. Oftentimes, artists begin making artworks and then something unexpected occurs during the art making process--a "happy accident." In art, this happens often when artists set about to create one thing, yet something unplanned happens to the artwork that surprisingly and successfully changes the final outcome. We are hoping to examine the role that serendipity plays in art making, art and the lives of artists. All explorations of this theme are invited. Artworks in all media, techniques and styles are encouraged.

EXHIBITION SPACE & DATES

DEADLINE
The deadline to submit works for this exhibit is May 12, 2016 (11:59 MST).

Click here for a Step-by-Step guide on how to apply to exhibits through CallForEntry.org. You can also watch a short video on How to Apply here. The good folks at CallforEntry.org are better suited to assist you with technical issues with your online entry. For assistance, please contact cafe@westaf.org during weekday business hours only, Mountain Standard Time.

THE JURYING PROCESS
The method by which ALL exhibitions are juried at Art Saint Louis is always a fair and blind (anonymous) process. What this means is that at no time before or during the jurying process do our Jurors know the names of entering artists. The Jurors are presented all entrants' JPEGs in an anonymous digital image presentation and the only information provided to them pertains to the artwork and includes the following: artwork title, year, media, dimensions, and method of presentation (displayed on the wall, sits on a pedestal). Jurors are never shown the names of any artists. All artworks that you submit for jurying are presented one after the other in the presentation that the jurors view. So, if you are artist #25, your artworks/entries are in the presentation after artist #24 and before artist #26. From the jurying presentation and information provided about the artworks, the jurors make their selections for the final exhibit. Artwork selection decisions are in part based on a set of specific jurying instructions & criteria relating to the theme of the exhibit as well as specific conditions & rules of the Gallery. For non-thematic exhibitions, a well-rounded exhibit is based on the Jurors' aesthetics along with general exhibition criteria established for all exhibits by Art Saint Louis' Artistic Director. This is a blind and FAIR process and at no time are the Jurors shown entrants' names, and oftentimes they do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls. Ours is a fair jurying process.

SALES & INSURANCE
  • All artworks must either have a sale price or be marked Not for Sale (NFS).
  • No works marked POR (price on request) will be accepted.
  • Artist's sale prices listed with original entry submitted for jurying may not be changed after entry deadline (May 12, 2016).
  • All sales are through Art Saint Louis with 30% donation/commission on work sold to ASL and 70% to artist. Sale price includes Art Saint Louis' commission.
  • Artist responsible for delivery of sold work to buyer at end of exhibit. Artworks are insured at 50% of retail value during exhibit.
  • Artist responsible for work in transit to/from ASL. 

FRAMING & FINAL PRESENTATION 
  • All work selected for exhibit must be delivered to Gallery ready to install.
  • 2-d work must be framed & equipped with hanging wire stretched across back of artwork.
  • NO sawtooth hangers, clip-style frames or keyhole mounts.
  • French Cleat mounts okay.
  • Works on canvas may be framed, strip-framed or gallery-wrapped.
  • 2-d works must be framed or, if not framed, pre-approved presentation.

NEED TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE or
HAVE ONLINE APPLICATION QUESTIONS?
  • If this is your first time using this online application process, it's in your best interest to register and upload your images into an image Portfolio on CallforEntry.org sooner rather than later, just in case you face any technical challenges or require assistance from them. That way, when you do want to submit your works for our call for entry, you will be ready to go and the process will run smoothly (depending on your computer, software and internet service).  
  • IF you are having challenges with the online application process, uploading images or any other issue, there is a HELP page you can visit for troubleshooting. Or, the good people at CallforEntry.org are in their offices M-F only in Denver, CO, so remember that they are an hour behind us-and they can be reached by email at cafe@westaf.org
