Castell Photography exhibits photo-based media by artists from all over the globe. Only photo-based artwork is accepted-- any works which include photography as an integral component, but can include other mediums, such as printmaking, painting, sculpture, etc., as supplemental methods. We are especially interested in artists who push the boudaries of photography, are experimental, use narrative, and who use traditional and alternative photographic mediums as a way to communicate his or her ideas. Digital formats are welcome, but we look for it to be used as an additional tool, in a unique way, and/or in an exceptional manner. We are looking for cohesive bodies of work.
Submissions for exhibition are always welcome by email or mail, and should include:
1) A current resume detailing education, exhibitions, awards, collections, etc, as well as complete contact information.
2) Portfolio: We only accept submissions in digital format on CD or by email. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT MATERIALS IN PERSON AND DO NOT SEND ORIGINALS. Send 8-12 .jpg's sized at 72 dpi at 8" on the short end. Files should be labelled with artist's last name and image # (example: Smith_01.jpg). All work should have been created in the past 3 years.
