opening reception

The opening reception is Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 7:00-10:00 pm at CS Gallery, located at 66 Parsons Avenue, Columbus, Ohio.

The reception is free and open to the public. The Facebook Event page can be found here.

Details:
To celebrate the return of EXPOSURE, we are re-creating the ambiance of the power outage that occured opening night of the 2013 EXPOSURE exhibit — patrons were left in the dark to (fittingly) view the mobile images by the light of their smartphones. The atmosphere was special and intimate, and a disappointed “awwww” came from the crowd when power was restored. We thought it’d be fun to have a voluntary outage this year — the “Blackout Hour”.

{ BLACKOUT HOUR // 7:00-8:00 pm }
*The lights will be dimmed, the atmosphere will be memorable
*Raffle with prizes from local shops and restaurants
*Acoustic set by Jeff McCargish

{ LIGHTS ON! // 8:00-10:00 pm }
*Performances by DJ Moxy and pRODUCT
*Video projection

Food, beer, and wine will be available all evening.

° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° °

Exhibit dates: March 15-26, 2014
Gallery hours: Tues – Friday, 5:00-8:00 pm; Saturday + Sunday by appointment

Progress

Prints, wood panels, and mounting supplies have been ordered and are en route to the studio for assembly. With the opening reception fast approaching (March 15!), we are also in the midst of preparing promotional materials, such as show postcards, posters, and the press release. February will be a whirlwind but we are excited!

And by “we” I mean me (Amy), Daniel (CS Gallery), and Cyndi Westover (assistant extraordinaire).

I’ve suckered Cyndi (kidding, she volunteered!) into helping with the organization of this beast. Cyndi (@verucas_chaos2) is an active participant in the mobile photography community, as many folks know. Recently, she embarked on a project to document life after retirement via mobile photography, and is on the hunt for the perfect combination of Hipstamatic film and lens. Endless combinations, Cyndi — good luck! If you’ve had the pleasure of interacting with her, you know she’s a hoot. She’s also never not taking photos, and plays the ukelele. So basically, she’s a perfect fit. Thank you, Cyndi, for volunteering your time!

drumroll, please…

With so many exceptional and diverse images submitted, our juror, Lisa McLymont, had a very challenging job selecting 60 artists from a total of 139 submissions. A huge thank you to all who submitted — it is truly an honor to have your support and interest.

so many great submissions!

The quality of work submitted for the 2014 iteration of {EXPOSURE} A Mobile Photography Exhibition is outstanding. Our juror, Lisa McLymont, has her work cut out for sure! Thank you all who submitted and helped get the word out!

We received a total of 139 submittals. This breaks down to 49 entries from Ohio and 90 entries from the rest of the world. Artists from 4 continents and both hemispheres submitted work in a wide variety of styles — from street photography to self-portraiture to conceptual work to landscapes to still life to abstracts — the quality of work is truly extraordinary.

Our juror will spend the next few weeks studying the images, which have been coded so that each artist is anonymous. A total of 60 artists — 30 from Ohio and 30 from outside of Ohio — will be selected to exhibit in {EXPOSURE}, which will be held at CS Gallery in March 2014. Artists will be notified of the juror’s selections in mid-January.

As previously stated in the rules for participation, accepted artists will be asked to submit a $35 fee to cover the cost of printing/mounting of the artworks. Instructions on when and how to submit the fee will be provided with acceptance letters.

Submission distribution by continent

the call for entry is closed

Thank you all who submitted! Artists will be notified about selections in mid-January.

5 days to go before submittal opens!

We are prepping for the onslaught of photographs that will bomb our inbox in December!

Submittal instructions will be posted when the Call for Entries opens this Sunday, December 1 (9:00 am EST).

Call for Entries will officially close on Sunday, December 15 (11:59 pm EST).

what to expect in 2014

We learned a lot in 2013, the inaugural year for EXPOSURE! The exhibit generated more interest and enthusiasm by the mobile photo community than we ever imagined, but also more chaos than anticipated. It was a valuable learning experience.

Below is a summary of what artists can expect for EXPOSURE 2014.

  • EXPOSURE 2014 will be held from March 15 – 26, 2014 at CS Gallery in the historic neighborhood of Olde Towne East in Columbus, Ohio, a metropolitan area with a population of nearly 2 million in the Midwest, U.S. The opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, March 15, 2014, 7:00-10:00 pm.
  • ALL IMAGES SUBMITTED MUST BE SHOT AND EDITED USING ONLY A MOBILE DEVICE AND ASSOCIATED APPS. We define “mobile device” as all mobile phones and tablets.
  • The 2014 exhibit will be JURIED through a blind jury process. The juror, Lisa McLymont, is a Columbus-based professional artist and art educator with no ties to the mobile photography community. We chose Lisa because she is able to provide an objective eye and eliminate bias.
  • The Call for Entry will be open December 1 – 15, 2013. The Call for Entry will officially close at 11:59 pm EST on December 15, 2013.
  • There is NO fee to participate in the Call for Entry or jury process.  Juror Lisa McLymont has graciously volunteered her time.
  • All work submitted must be in square format.
  • There is NO theme or style requirement. We simply want your best work.
  • A total of SIXTY (60) artists will be accepted, split evenly between Ohio artists and non-Ohio artists. (Thirty (30) Ohio artists will be accepted, and thirty (30) artists from outside of Ohio will be accepted.)
  • Accepted artists will be notified approximately one (1) month after the Call for Entry is closed. Accepted artists will also be listed here and on the Exposure Mobile Photo Facebook page.
  • Accepted artists will be subject to a $35 participation fee. This covers the cost of printing/mounting images, and promotional expenses.
  • Accepted artists will have five (5) images physically displayed at CS Gallery. Each image will also be available for purchase in limited editions of five (5) through an online gallery that will be operational for the duration of the brick-and-mortar exhibit.
  • Images displayed at the gallery will be professionally printed on 8″x8″ Kodak Professional Endura Lustre paper and mounted to an 8″x8″ wood panel (3/4″ thick). Wood-mounted images will be priced at $55. CS Gallery takes a 25% commission on all work sold.
  • Images sold through the online gallery will be professionally printed on 8″x8″ Kodak Professional Endura Lustre paper and matted to 11″x14″ using white acid-free matboard, and shipped in a clear, acid-free sleeve and photo mailer. Only five (5) of each image will be sold, thus maintaining edition status. Matted images sold online will be priced at $30 + shipping. CS Gallery takes a 25% commission on all work sold.
  • Unsold work by Central Ohio arists may be picked up at CS Gallery through the end of April 2014. Artwork that is left after this time period will be destroyed by the gallery, and wood panels reused.
  • Unsold work by artists outside of Central Ohio may choose to have their work shipped to them for a nominal fee. Shipping charges will depend on the weight of the package and location of the artist. Artists who do not wish to pay for shipping will have their images destroyed by the gallery. The leftover wood panels will be reused in 2015.
  • ALL ARTISTS MAINTAIN COPYRIGHT ON THEIR IMAGES.
  • CS Gallery takes a 25% commission on all work sold.
