Call to Photographers

ESLT invites you to submit work to a juried show for our 4th annual Art for Conservation Show & Sale planned for the summer of 2012. ESLT is grateful to have the opportunity to partner with talented photographers to benefit ESLT’s work to preserve Eastern Sierra lands.

This year’s Art for Conservation Show & Sale opens on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at the G2 Gallery in Venice Beach, California.  The G2 Gallery is a wonderful venue to show and sell art, all for a good cause!  Forty percent of all sales will support ESLT’s work preserving Eastern Sierra lands, with sixty percent of each sale going to the artist.  The show will be well publicized in the Los Angeles area and the Eastern Sierra. The Show & Sale will run through Monday, August 5, 2012. A reception honoring the artists will be held Saturday June 30.

HOW TO SUBMIT ART:

Photographers are requested to submit up to five digital images of their work for consideration. Work may be color or black and white. Subject matter should be nature or wildlife from the Eastern Sierra Nevada region. This region is generally defined as being those areas of Inyo, Mono and Alpine counties east of the crest. Please contact ESLT with questions about the regional boundaries. No slides or prints will be accepted. Digital images must be 96 ppi, sRGB color space, not to exceed 15 inches horizontally and 10 inches vertically, saved as JPEG quality 9, and sent to art@eslt.org by February 28, 2012. Each image must be named with the artist’s last name, a title or unique number, and size of unframed piece (for example: Smith_ -Owens Valley sunrise,-_15x10.jpg). Contact information must accompany submissions.

Declined images will not be returned and will not be kept on file after the jurying is completed.  ESLT assumes no responsibility or liability for undelivered or deleted files and emails.

NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE:

Eight photographers will be chosen by the juried panel.  If your artwork is selected, you will be notified electronically by April 28, 2012.

PRESENTATION OF ARTWORKS:

Work for this show must be gallery ready. Final presentations must be matted with white matte and framed in solid black frame. Artists will be responsible for shipping or delivering their artwork to the G2 Gallery. When photographers are accepted, we will provide detailed submission guidelines for the 2012 Art for Conservation Show & Sale. Photographers who are selected for the show will be asked to sign a contract and provide a one-page photographer’s statement and bio in a word document (.doc) or PDF format.
