    Exciting Announcement Concerning Large Format Photography and New England

    Below are the details an exciting opportunity for Large Format photographers from near and far.

    Raid Our Gallery
    Sponsored by New England Large Format
    Photography Collective

    . If you want your Large Format photography to get the recognition it deserves then be one of 50 Notable photographers to donate 3 prints each to this Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center fundraiser.
    . Each contributing photographer gets a numbered raffle ticket and guest pass.
    . The other 100 tickets are sold for $175.00 each to art collectors, corporations and patrons of fine art photography.
    . On Nov. 5, all the prints will be exhibited in Cancer Center Atrium while everyone enjoys champagne, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
    . At the appointed time all the tickets will be placed in a drum, and the numbers called out. When your number is called you designate the print you would like and pick it up at the end of the evening. (It is recommended that during the cocktail hour you make a list of the images you prefer and make notes on the printed program you will receive.) At the end of the evening everyone with a ticket goes home with a work of art.
    . Out of town photographers can view the images on our website, and make some choices to e-mail to an appointed proxy.
    . This is a noble cause that will be widely publicized and will further the awareness of Large Format Photography while raising money for a very worthy cause. New England Large Format Photography Collective receives no monies, in fact we are absorbing some of the promotion costs.
    . Submissions:
    . All prints will go through the NELFPC selection committee set up for this specific Raid Our Gallery event..
    . All submissions must have originated from film with a 4x5 or larger camera, and can be color or black and white.
    . All submissions must be mounted and matted to 14”x18” with gallery neutral mat board. Please NO foam core. Larger images from ULF photographers will be accepted, but might not be glassed.
    . All submissions should be titled, and signed by the maker. They should have identification on the reverse including media (platinum, silver gelatin, c-print, etc.)

    For more information visit www.nelfpc.com or please contact:

    Bump!!!!!
    I will be participating in this project, and am hoping that a few of the other NE-APUG people will also participate. I will be sending out e-mails to ya in a couple of days.
    This is a very worthy cause and a good way to get your name and work out to a group of people who actually spend money on photographs.

    Glad to hear it Gene,

    We are at about 35 LF photographers and the list of names is quite impressive. We have commitments from as far away as Texas and New Mexico.

    Just today I received word that a legendary Connecticut talk radio show host has agreed to be our Master of Ceremonies come November 5th.

    The event is becoming more impressive with each passing day.

    Any Large Format photographer who is interested in more information is invited to e mail either Gene or myself for specific information.

    Cheers !

    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    Will do!

    Word Documents are being finalized and should be sent to those interested by week's end.

    Submission deadline is September 15th. Additionally, we have formatted an 8.5x11 sheet which the artist will complete with his / her Exhibition History and Bio along with a provision for a picture of the artist and brief Artist Statement if you are so inclined.

    Again thanks, Steve

    Steve,

    What a fantastic event! While not an LFer (yet!), I am right over the bridge from Middletown and will help spread the word to the locals and keep the buzz going.

    Greetings again,

    We are at 45 LF photographers and closing in on 50. If any of you are interested the few remaining spots probably won't last long.

    Cheers to those who have responded so far!
