Canadian Exhibition at CASA (March 4-April 15, 2017)

Lethbridge Photography Club members have an opportunity to display their photography at CASA.

When on display:  March 4 – April 15, 2017
Where:  CASA, upstairs corridor
Theme:  Celebrating Canada (tied in with Canada’s 150th birthday)
Submission Deadline:  February 9, 2017

Darcy Logan, curator at CASA, will decide on which photos will be selected for display. He will select 20 – 25 photos depending on the sizes.

A reception with wine and cheese will be held at 7pm on March 4, 2017.
Usually CASA will work with us in making an invitation to this opening, and we will probably ask to use one of the accepted images on the invitation.  I haven’t verified this with him yet, though.

Submission information (for Jury)

  • Up to 3 prints may be submitted per photographer.
  • Sizes of the prints are up to the photographer, there is no maximum size.  Submit your image for jury in the size that you intend to print it for the show
  • Prints must not be framed – but must have some sort of firm backing.
  • Name, title, & contact information must be on the back of the print.
  • Once Darcy has made his selections you will be able to pick up your prints.  If your image was successful, you will receive a letter attached to your image which will give you guidelines on how to prepare your image for hanging and when to bring it back to CASA for the show.  Usually it is a few days before the opening which is March 4th.
  • I will let you know when Darcy plans to complete the jury process but usually it is within a day or two of the submission deadline, so I would guess that by Monday 11th you should be able to pick them up. However please check here or watch for an email as I find this information out from Darcy.
  • Darcy does try to include as many member’s images as possible.  What this means is that depending on how many members submit images, that you probably can’t expect all three of your images to be accepted.  However, I do encourage you to submit three images for them to choose from, so that they can create the best, most dynamic show by having a greater selection of images to choose from.
  • What images you choose is entirely up to you. Darcy does not have any preconceived ideas or expectations of how he wants the show to look.  He just wants to see our individual interpretations of the theme “Canadian”
  • I have some frames here which would work for this exhibition.  They are silver or silver brushed metal.  If you are interested in borrowing one of these frames, then let me know and I will tell you what sizes I have available. It would be best if you did this before you printed your image, so that you can print it to a size that would work, if you want to borrow a frame.  You will probably have to still get your own mat cut for it.
