Dave is correct; I should also mention that I think they spent quite a bit of money on a mailing that advertised the exhibition (in addition to the other costs mentioned).
I apologize for any misrepresentation on whether it was a gallery or an art center, again, I did not want to reveal who it was and I used the term “gallery” generically.
Also if I understand eddym’s point, if the juror doesn’t want landscapes in his/her exhibition (which I agree is the right (and job) of the juror), then if he/she thinks the photograph is a landscape, it can be skipped. If this is the case, perhaps the gallery or art center putting on the Photography Exhibition, should be more forthcoming about the genre that will be selected. Anything less, sorry eddym, is dishonest and unethical. Plain and simple, if you’re only going to accept contemporary portraiture, say so in the Prospectus; don’t take artist’s money when you know their art won’t be selected.
But I don’t want to digress from the core point: eddym, they didn’t review my art work and I am sure you’ll agree that was not right.
One more thing: I have no problem with not getting selected, as I said, it has happened before and will happen in the future, to all of us. This is not a thread about not being selected for an exhibition.
