Current Exhibit: 3rd Open Call, Jurored by Paula Tognarelli
February 16 – March 11, 2017
Opening reception January 19 from 5:00 to 9:00pm
Awards reception Thursday March 9
PCPA presents a broad range of work from established and emerging photographers in its 3rd Open Call exhibit, jurored by Paula Tognarelli, Executive Director and Curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography.
The “open call” is a collection of 66 images selected from nearly 1400 pieces submitted for the competition. The open format allowed artists to submit pieces that best represented their work, told their story, the drive, motivation, and inspiration of their creative process. While the exhibit was planned without a theme, Paula Tognarelli’s selections follow an interesting thread of subject matter and composition that visually unites this creative body of work.
See the exhibit online. The sequence of the images is intentional and in the order of Paula Tognarelli’s curation.
