CALL FOR ENTRIES: Abstract Photography Exhibit at Photostop Gallery in White River Junction

PHOTOSTOP Gallery announces a call for entries for its second juried show, Light-Struck: Abstract Photography Today, which will be exhibited in the Gallery in September, 2011.

For this exhibition PHOTOSTOP is seeking photographs that are, as scholar and curator Lyle Rexer said in his book The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography, "photographs without pictures, or rather, photographs that refuse to disclose fully the images they contain". Entries must be photo-based processes, either traditionally captured with film or on a digital sensor, created in a darkroom, or achieved through other light-based photographic methods.

Considered a pioneer in the camera-less photogram and lens-based Polaroid photographic and contemporary art field, juror Ellen Carey is an internationally and nationally recognized artist, whose work (1978-2010) has been the subject of forty-six one-person exhibitions in museums, alternative spaces and commercial galleries and several hundred group exhibitions. Carey is an Associate Professor of Photography at the Hartford Art School. Carey will choose approximately 30 photographs, depending on sizes, for exhibition during the show. In addition, both the images selected for the exhibition and 20-30 additional photos will be featured on the PHOTOSTOP website.

Entry is by the submission of digital files. The prospectus for the exhibition is available on the Gallery website or can be obtained by calling the Gallery at 802.698.0320 or by e-mailing The entry deadline is June 15. Photographers will be notified of acceptance in early July.

PHOTOSTOP Gallery is located in Suite 150 on the first floor of the Tip Top Media Arts Building, 85 North Main Street, White River Jct., VT 05001.
