"Call for Artitsts: Passion"
2006-08-24 until 2006-09-29
Umbrella Arts - Professional Women Photographers
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Passion is fuel for life. We are born with passion to create with passion. We love, work and play with passion; many pray with passion--and for it. Our need to touch is passionate: it binds us together as couples and families, communities and nations. Yet passion, a strange and lovely fire, has a volatile personality. The ying and yang of love and hate, passions of politics—or of the heart--can result in extraordinary achievement, and unspeakable destruction. Now “Passion,” an exhibition sponsored by PWP and juried by renowned photographer Elinor Carucci, invites members to present images reflecting this life force. Please give us your most evocative work, images from daily life and from a life you can barely imagine, images that stir the soul and echo in the mind, with passion.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all current PWP members paid up to date. All types of photography-based work may be entered, including digital, alternative processes, photo collage and montage. Maximum print size is 16" x 20" or 20" x 20”. Work previously exhibited in a PWP show is ineligible. Submission to a PWP exhibition does not guarantee acceptance.

JUROR: PWP is pleased to announce that Elinor Carucci, a photographer of raw and startling intimacy, will jury this exhibition. The author of two books: Diary of a Dancer, SteidlMACK (excepts appeared on May 22, 2005 in the New York Times Magazine as “Night Moves,” a chronicle of her life as a belly dancer), and Closer, Chronicle Books, she is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the International Center of Photography Infinity Award. Her exhibitions have appeared in many cities, including New York, London, Moscow, Geneva and Tel Aviv. Represented by the Edwin Houk Gallery, New York City, her images can be seen at http://houkgallery.com, and at http://www.elinorcarucci.com.

ENTRY PROCEDURE: Entries will be juried only from CDs, with the following requirements:
· High quality jpegs 300 dpi in RGB or grayscale color space
· Size: 820 pixels on the longest dimension
· Numbered and named, e.g., 01_Smith_Greatshow.jpg.

Please submit up to 6 images on a CD, for an exhibition fee of $ 35.00. Include finished print size on application form. Selected CD submissions will become part of the PWP archive. Make check or money order payable to PWP. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage for return of materials. Fill out the entry form.
