In the Abstract
Deadline: March 21
Exhibition: April 30 – May 31
Opening Reception: May 2
Abstract photography explores color, movement, form, and other intangibles that are not dependent on a recognizable subject. The medium of photography has a unique ability to reproduce with precision and clarity, the world as we see it. Abstract photography deconstructs our world, resulting in new and surprising interpretations. Graphic elements without context, long exposures, blurred subjects, and extreme close-ups are a few of the ways that photographers manipulate their subjects in an abstract manner. These works are limited only by imagination. For In the Abstract, The Kiernan Gallery seeks non-representational imagery that partially or fully obscures the recognizable world.
For this exhibition, juror Susan Spiritus will select up to 25 images for display in the main gallery, and up to an additional 35 to be included in the online gallery. 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 will both receive a free copy of the exhibition catalogue.
All photographic media are encouraged.
