Announcement: New Call for Entry!

Encore: A Look at Music
Deadline: November 22
Exhibition: January 2 - 26, 2013
Opening Reception: January 4

From tribal drumming to radio DJs, advertising jingles to Italian opera, music is important to every culture. Even though it is more accessible than ever before, our thirst for rhythm and melody continues unabated. For this exhibition, The Kiernan Gallery asks you to explore one art form with another; using the visual medium of photography to illustrate the sounds that inspire you.

Show us your record collections, instruments, and portraits of musicians and fans. Show us stadium concerts, jam sessions, and street performers from distant nations. Most of all, show us what music means to you. For Encore: A Look at Music, The Kiernan Gallery seeks photographs of and inspired by music.

All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced and both winners will receive a free copy of the catalogue.
