Photography Re-imagined V – Call for Artists

Tilt Gallery announces a call for artists for Photography Re-imagined V: The Artist’s Hand.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 2 Nov 2015

All images must be one of a kind and must incorporate some element of photography. The photographs can be from any source, film, digital, scanned, alternative processes, and so forth, as long as they are your own, original images. They should also incorporate other methods of expression such as paint, transfers, collage, prints, graphite, and ink or any combination of different materials so that they exist in their finished form as a unique, one of a kind, handmade image. The exhibition is open to all subject matter.

Juror: Holly Roberts.

First and second place awards and honorable mentions will be granted. In addition to the Photography Re-Imagined juried exhibition, First and Second place winners’ will have work selected by Tilt Gallery to be included in our annual signature exhibition Who’s in the House at Tilt Gallery.

When you think of photo galleries, New York City, San Francisco or Los Angeles probably first come to mind. But if you ask about where are the top leading photographic image makers using historical techniques and alternative processes within the contemporary and traditional fields of photography you’ll hear about the Tilt Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The intimate gallery was one of the first to specialize in historic formats and alternative processes. Timing was perfect. Tilt filled a gap, and quickly became a focal point for an emerging new photographic community. The gallery quickly built a reputation, first regionally, but soon reaching national and international audiences.

One of Tilt’s signature events is the “Photography Re-Imagined” exhibitions that have been juried by internationally renowned photographers France Scully Osterman, Christopher James, Jill Enfield, and Anna Strickland. Tilt has built strong community collaborations connecting artists, schools and educational programs, galleries, museums, and collectors.

After several years, Tilt Gallery made the move from their bungalow in the Grand Avenue Arts District in Central Phoenix to the Arts District in Old Town Scottsdale. In their new location Tilt continues to offer individual artist exhibitions, juried and group shows, serving the art community.
