DVAA is excited to announce our 3rd Open Lens group exhibition that features traditional film and digital photographic works being juried by Philadelphia based photographer and educator Howard Brunner.

We invite photographers to submit work in response to this year’s theme Urban Visions. This is work that shows a unique vision to living or experiencing the city of Philadelphia. Interpretations of the theme could be mystical, abstract, personal, literal, or in protest. One’s personal “vision” could reject conventional “urbanity”, it could attempt to redefine or illustrate it, or can show the personal or communal aspects of the city.

Application Deadline: 1/18/2017
Notification of selection: 1/25/2017
Opening Reception: 2/1/2017
About the Juror: Philadelphia based Photographer and educator Howard Brunner received a BFA in graphic design, Philadelphia College of Art and an MFA in photography from the University of Delaware. Brunner is currently teaching at Tyler School of Art and has a long history of teaching at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Brunner is represented in the collections of; The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The James A. Michener Museum of Art, and the Allentown Museum of Art.

Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.
