Call for Art: ArtsQuest’s 11th Annual InVision Juried Exhibition

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, September 12, 2021

ArtsQuest is hosting its 11th annual InVision program in November 2021. InVision is a premier photo-based art program that is designed to foster excitement and dialogue between a diverse group of participants interested in the process of creating art. This month-long series and complimentary year-long programming provide professional development, networking, and hands-on workshops for photographers, image-based artists, creative entrepreneurs, makers, and DIYers. InVision Festival leverages the unique attractions, history, and landscape of the Lehigh Valley and celebrates its diverse artistic and cultural community.

The theme for the 2021 Juried Exhibition focuses on Alternative-Process photography and mixed media photo-based art. This exhibition aims to feature works that use alternative-process photography techniques, which highlights the unique quality these tactile processes bring to the overall piece.

Images submitted should be altered or touched by the artist’s hand in some way during the creation of the final piece. No unaltered digitally printed images** will be accepted: this includes archival pigment prints, giclee prints, inkjet prints, Iris prints, and laser prints. Some ideas of alternative process/ photo-based mixed media include:

*Daguerreotypes

* Tintypes (wet plate and dry plate)

* Salt prints

* Cyanotypes

* Platinum/Palladium prints

*Gum Bichromate prints

* Casein prints

* Van Dyke Brown prints

* Albumen prints

* Bromoil prints

* Polaroid and FujiFilm Prints, Lifts, and Photo Transfers,

*Chemograms/Photograms

*B/W gelatin silver prints

* chromogenic color prints

*Photolithography or Photo Silkscreen

*Collaged or mixed media pieces that use found photographs and/or artist’s photographs

**Painting, drawing, and sculpture will be accepted if it is used as a form of manipulation upon a photographic image via the processes listed above OR digitally printed images – for example, hand-tinted gelatin silver print, Watercolor over Cyanotype, Colored pencil over photo transfer, painting over an inkjet print, etc.

Juror Info: Jason Chen

Jason Chen is originally from Guangzhou, China. He received his BFA in Animation from the University of Arts in 2008. Jason is a Philadelphia-based photographer specializing in Fashion, Editorial, and Alternative Process Photography. He is the Co-Founder of Paradigm Gallery + Studio and Juggling Wolf (a film and animation production studio). Jason’s work has been displayed in galleries and venues including Paradigm Gallery + Studio, Crane Arts, The Light Room Gallery, Trust Gallery, Kimmel Center, and Commerce Square. In 2012, Jason shifted his dry plate tintypes practice to photo weaving. He began using two images taken within seconds of each other, then cut and wove them together. Because of his background in film and animation, Jason explores ways to incorporate the “Fourth Dimension” – Time – into his work. Photo weaving allows him to do this by exploring movement and mutation.

Art that playfully employs found images, biomorphic shapes, photo transfer and collage in somewhat surreal, abstracted landscapes/cityscapes, enriched with various media such as water color, acrylic, and colored pencil. Nature is a source of joy and also concern.
