This Deadline Expired: Monday, May 17, 2021

Submissions are now being accepted for UPSHOT! Up Arts Incubator’s 1st Annual Juried Photography Show, which will be held in the gallery located in Lansdale, PA, and online from June 18th – July 30th.

Artists may choose to have their work shown online only if they prefer to not ship or hand-deliver their work for the in-person show.

All work chosen for the show, in-person and/or online, will be eligible to receive the “Best in Show” award and/or the Director’s Choice award.

UPSHOT! celebrates all forms of photography from traditional b/w to alternative processes to digital composites. If your work is derivative, the majority of the images used should be your own and those incorporated from other sources should not violate any copyright issues. This is an anything goes type of show. One “Best in Show” award will be chosen by the show’s juror, Juliette Cook, InLiquid Development Director, and one “Director’s Choice” award will be chosen by the gallery.

All submissions should not have a dimension larger than 30″ inches, including the matte and frame. Frameless, professionally mounted images are also acceptable, such as images on wood, acrylic, or aluminum. And, all pieces should be wired for hanging. Please no sawtooth hanging hardware or drilled holes.

The intentional physicality of my paintings is as much a result of my dialogue throughout the process as it is the means with which I invite viewers to experience the work viscerally. Iconography may be the entry point for viewers, but the essence of the elements and ambiguity demand individual interaction with each painting. Layering is both revealing and concealing, creating a balanced tension and suspension which is really what painting is for me. I use the elements to speak for me and I wish to open doors to new dialogue within and between viewers.
