Since I'm working a lot in the panoramic format right now, and want to see as many different artists as I can, I have decided to extend a call for entries for a panoramic-only exhibit to be held on the campus of Utah State University, in Logan, Utah to be held from January 5-12, 2008.

The Twain-Tippets Art Gallery is a space approximately 2500 square feet in size with multiple partitions to hang work from. I have arranged to have the gallery for one week in January. It is the first week students will be back on campus from Christmas Break, so there will be a fair amount of exposure to them.

We only get a week because it is an on-campus gallery and there are other students/faculty/guest exhibitors who use the space regularly.

If you are interested, let me know. I am thinking of having a few 'restrictions'.

There is no restriction as to method of image capture or output. Analog and digital will be presented side-by-side.

Preference would definitely be given to any ULF, alt and/or hybrid methods.

I'm also considering making it a print-exchange also...meaning you will not recieve back the print you sent in. (still under consideration...)

In order to make it affordable to both give and mail prints, I'm also going to ask that they not be matted or mounted, but sent in a roll-tube.

The show will be 'lightly-juried' meaning that there will be some help from Craig Law (http://www.art.usu.edu/department/faculty/law.php) (a photography professor at USU), in deciding who is in and who is out. Honestly, if you submit a print, it'll probably get in.

A small fee (undecided as of yet) will be charged to cover return postage. I would ask that the materials you send your print inside of could also be re-used to return prints to others.

Let me know if there are any suggestions I might do to modify this 'call for entries' and to make the show more sucessful.

I've never curated a show before, so not only is this new territory as to how to do a call for entries, but also in the exhibiting of the images.

Oh, and keep it up!

Michael, So as far as print exchange goes....Does this mean if I submit a Pt/Pd 8x20 print from an in-camera negative, I could receive back a digital capture inkjet print? Also when I order paper I always request that it be shipped flat. But you want me to roll up a platinum print to ship? On a lighter note...What if I want to submit a black glass ambrotype 12x20....how am I going to get it in the tube?

I have a 68" wide Pan print from my Fotoman 6x17 I would be please to have considered, it can't be shiped rolled, as it is float mounted already, but since I live in SLC, I could transport it to Logan for consideration. I would not, however, be interested in participating in a print exchange for it, if it were accepted, as the printing cost of the piece is rather substantial.

I might send something if I can do something worthwhile with the 7x17.

There are some valid questions. I suppose if you didn't want your print to be part of the print exchange, then you could opt out of that portion of it. I can't imagine that APUG members would want to trade a pt/pd print for a measly inkjet print, so that would be your perrogative.

On the contrary, you wouldn't be forced to enter something that had actual monetary value for you...perhaps you have something a little less...um...lofty that you actually *might* consider entering into a print-exchange type of a show?

I also have some 12x20's that I was considering entering, and I'm not too concerned about giving it away. I'm also going to be doing some solarplate gravures from dig. negatives and in-camera negatives. I wouldn't be entering something I didn't want to exchange for if I were you.

Like I said, that portion of the show is under consideration, but to be fair you aren't forced to submit anything.

JB you can bring your print to my home in Riverton if you'd like. It would be fun to get together anyhow.

I am probably out of my league here, but would a 4"x10" contact platinum print from a camera negative be considered?

I'm game. I'll be happy to submit one of my 5x12's in platinum/palladium.

I also am not interested in the print exchange unless the show will be all the same quality of work (ie LF/ULF in-camera negatives, wet-printed). I'm not interested in owning inkjet prints at this time.

Michael, what is the purpose of the 'show'? Is it to sell prints - possibly, or just demonstrate ulf, photography in general, etc. etc. The reason being is that I am a big believer in the 'finished' print. I never let a print go out that hasn't been properly matted and mounted...i.e a finished print...whether it's for show or 'tell'. If we want to demonstrate the 'art' of photography and the magical quality of ULF and contact prints, might I suggest a different approach?

The other issue is that you are only dealing with a week which is tough to get adequate exposure?

Just some thoughts. Again, meant to be constructive, please..

I am only tyring to help here....and I would eliminate print exchange as it will only make things more difficult for you...just one more headache you don't need.

Hi Scott,

The purpose of the show is to get work hung together that shares a common theme...in this case the common theme is the panoramic format. It's not necessarily to demonstrate ULF (although there will be a few ULF prints for sure). A show to demonstrate photography in general typically does not include a wide variety of panoramas.

This venue is in 'small town' Utah. There may be the occasional patron who will come in and fall in love with your print and want to purchase it. I would not hold my breath though, the majority of those who will see your work will be students and faculty. Read: poor and cheap :)

The reason I decided to ask for unmounted prints was to make it easy for folks to ship larger prints, and easy for those prints to be sent back out as part of an exchange.

I understand your hesitation to send in an 'unfinished' print. I admire your passion to show your work at its best. There have been several who have expressed both a wish to not participate in the print exchange portion of the exhibit, and also want to show their work framed.

I would suggest that you could participate with a print you consider 'finished' with the understanding that you would recieve your print back in it's original shipping container provided there is adequate return postage or a shipping invoice filled out.


The other issue is that you are only dealing with a week which is tough to get adequate exposure?

Agreed. It's not nearly long enough for me, but beggars can't be choosers. The gallery space is available free of charge, which appeals to me (since I am both a student *and* faculty, which makes me poor *and* cheap).


Just some thoughts. Again, meant to be constructive, please..

I understand completely, and do appreciate your comments and suggestions. I am deciding to make the print exchange portion 'optional'.

Thanks again,

Hello Michael,

I would be interested in participating. I am interested in both the show and print exchange. I could submit either a 12 x 20 image or 7 x 17 image, both of which would be in camera. They could either be Pt/Pd gumovers, or wet plate depending on how much work I can get done over the next several months.

Hope to be kept posted,

Monty aka Zebra

Well, if I can offer some suggestions...hehe.

I've never seen a 12x20 wet plate. I think that would be pretty amazing actually.

Either is great, but of course the 'weirder' the better. Thanks for your interest!

Watch the thread for updates...

This gives me incentive to start shooting with the 5x12... ;)

Michael,

When is the submission deadline for this?

Would be interested in exhibiting and print swapping in ULF sizes only

Steve,

I want prints to arrive no later than Dec. 15th. I anticipate that there will be several prints that will be caught in the Christmas mail, so giving a few weeks lead time can provide a bit of a buffer.

An ULF print exchange might work. I myself will be probably entering a large gravure, and there are a few others who will be entering ULF/alt. work.

There is a good possibility that this is turning into a 'traveling exhibit'. I am arranging for gallery space at Brigham Young Univeristy, and trying to arrange gallery space at a university in Idaho.

If there are folks who are interested in arranging for space in their own locales, let's see if we can't give this show some legs.

Michael,
Is there any restriction on subject matter, i.e. can nude images be submitted?

I like the idea of a traveling show, but do we have a Mailing/Shipping Address for the submissions?

Alternative Address (my home...)

Michael Slade - Panorama Show

Anyone else looking for gallery space for a travelling show?

Diane, I find the idea of figure work shot as a panorama very appealing. I do know that at Utah State University, there will be no restrictions on subject matter being included in the show. At BYU, a private church-owned institution, there would be restrictions on figure work (go figure...).

FWIW, I tend to agree with Scott, you only have one chance at making a first impression.

Give us some more to go on Michael.

Thanks Steve
