Call for Art: 2017 InVision Photo-Based Art Juried Exhibition
deadline: Saturday, September 30, 2017
ArtsQuest is hosting its 7th annual InVision Festival on Nov. 3-5, 2017. The InVision Festival is a premier photo-based art festival that is designed to foster excitement and dialogue between a diverse group of participants around learning about and making art. The 3-day festival and complimentary year-long programming provide professional development, networking and hands-on workshops for photographers, image-based artists, creative entrepreneurs, makers, and DIYers. InVision leverages the unique attractions, history, and landscape of the surrounding region and celebrates its diverse artistic and cultural community.
This year, InVision will be hosting its seventh open juried exhibition, which has expanded from a Pennsylvania based Photography exhibition to a regional* photo-based juried competition. This exhibition looks to highlight work from all types of artists at different stages of their careers as well as many various types of photo-based art.
The juror for the 7th Annual InVision Photo-Based Art Exhibition will be Genevieve Coutroubis. Genevieve has a long professional career in the non-profit sector working for organizations such as Metropolitan Family Services in Chicago and The Environmental Careers Organization in Boston. She joined CFEVA’s staff in 2001 as the Director of Programming. In this capacity, Gen headed the Career Development Program (now the Visual Artist Fellowship) and mounted numerous exhibitions throughout the region. In 2004, Genevieve established CFEVA’s Regional Community Arts Program (RCAP)—a vehicle to bring substantial career development opportunities to Philadelphia’s visual artists. Genevieve currently manages the Visual Artist Fellowship, Regional Community Arts Program, and CFEVA’s residencies. In addition to her role at CFEVA, Gen is a practicing documentary photographer and ethnographer who exhibits extensively locally, nationally and internationally. In 2007, her work was featured in Women to Watch: Photography in Philadelphia at the National Museum for Women in the Arts, curated by Susan Fisher Sterling. Her work also appears in numerous national and international collections, including SEI’s West Collection. She received her Bachelors of Science in Photojournalism from Boston University and a Masters of Science in Anthropology from the University of PA.
