2018 Open Juried Exhibition

Join us as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary with another vibrant juried group exhibition – featuring the work of photographers from around the globe for the month of March 2018. Each year we select a distinguished guest juror to review submissions for this show and we’re delighted to announce Light Work’s very own Director Shane Lavalette as our 2018 juror. 

30 pieces will be selected for exhibition and there is no particular theme or subject matter. We welcome photographic work of all types, shapes, and sizes – including digital, film, alternative processes, photographic sculpture, video and other mixed media. Please know that very large pieces (larger than 40” in any direction) will be harder for us to accommodate because of spacial constraints – but ultimately, any submitted work will be considered. Artists are responsible for all framing and presentation equipment needed for their work. Photographers of any age and experience level are welcome to submit. Each artist may submit up to 4 pieces. Submissions will only be accepted via the electronic submission form below.
