Previous Call for Artists

April 2018 Call for All Artists

Romie and Judy Mizell Photography Show

This is the first annual Romie and Judy Mizell Photography Show.  It is a judged show with two categories and awards in each one. The two categories are Unaltered Photography and Modified Photography, as described below:

Unaltered Photography

Art shot with a camera that is a truthful representation of what was seen through the camera lens. Post-processing is kept to a very minimum, changed digitally only in ways that were formerly possible in a darkroom, i.e., adjusting brightness and contrast.  Cropping and converting to black and white are acceptable.

Modified Photography

Artwork that uses computer programs to change the photograph such that the image is no longer a truthful representation of what was seen through the camera lens. Photography of this kind uses various post-processing programs to modify or manipulate the original image to create the finished product.

Rules:

  • Each artist may enter up to 2 pieces; both can be in the same category or one in each.
  • All entries must be original works of art. We understand that photography is, by nature, a print and will be regarded as original art.
  • All artists must fill out our Gallery Registration Form; your signature on the form indicates acceptance of our liability waiver (available on our website, www.minthillarts.org).
  • Each piece must have an Intake Label attached to the back.
  • Entering artists must be 18 years old or have written permission from a parent/guardian.
  • All 2D artwork must be properly framed and wired (see website for more information). If your 2-D work does not require a frame, hanging must be thought out so it is ready to be displayed. Please try to avoid using poor quality frames (we’ve had artwork fall and break due to this).
  • Mint Hill Arts reserves the right to turn down any artwork that is not properly framed or is deemed as inappropriate, unsafe for public display or too difficult to install.
  • All artwork must remain in the show until its closing, unless it is sold in which case it can be taken from the gallery at the time of the sale.  If you have an emergency and must remove your artwork, you must notify Mint Hill Arts and make arrangements accordingly.
  • For all sales, MHA withholds a 20% commission.

Advance Publicity:

In our publicity we would like to be able, as appropriate, to include photos and descriptions of some of the art that will appear in the show.  If you would like for us to consider your entries, please send the Chair of the Communications Committee (Carol Clayton  at bizbrokercc@gmail.com ) a photo (in .jpg) of one or more of the pieces of art you will enter, the title(s), and if desired a short (no more than 50 words) sketch about you, the artist.  The information must be received by March 15th to be considered for inclusion in advertising.
