Current Exhibit: 4th Open Call
Jurored by Julie Grahame
Exhibit on view: October 12 – November 4
Opening reception: October 19, 5:00 to 9:00pm
Providence Center for Photographic Arts (PCPA) seeks a broad range of exhibition-ready work from established and emerging photographers for its 4th Open Call exhibit, jurored by Julie Grahame, publisher of aCurator.com, a full-screen photography magazine, and the associated aCurator blog. Julie is a consultant, portfolio reviewer, writer and speaker.
The “open call” is an opportunity to present your best work. There is no theme to adhere to. We want to see what drives, motivates, and inspires your creative process. All photo-based images are welcome. There is no limitation to subject matter or technique. All entries will be reviewed and judged on artistic merit, originality, technical excellence, composition, and overall impact.
PCPA is located in the Russell House (built in 1772) in downtown Providence, around the corner from the Providence Art Club and across the street from Mill’s Tavern Restaurant at 118 North Main Street, 2nd floor.
The gallery is open Fridays from 3:00 – 8:00 pm and Saturdays from 1:00 – 4:00 pm and by appointment. Please contact email@example.com or by phone at (401) 400-2542 with any questions. Visit the gallery online. Find us on FaceBook and Twitter.
