Second Call For Entries / Brentwood Arts Exchange

The Sky's the Limit: A juried exhibition of artworks in all media that incorporate photographic techniques  
APPLICATION DEADLINE - July 22, 2011 All submissions must be received by 5:00pm

The Brentwood Arts Exchange announces The Sky's the Limit, the 2011 Prince George's County Juried Exhibition. Photographic imagery is ubiquitous in nearly every aspect of our lives, from billboards, to cell phone videos, to keepsake albums, to Facebook profiles. It's no coincidence that it is just as pervasive throughout contemporary art - even in media that are often thought of in stark contrast to traditional photography. The Sky's the Limit presents a glimpse of the ways photography employs itself throughout the visual arts, here and now. Juried by Michael Platt, the exhibition presents the best photo-inclusive art by artists who live, work, or study in Prince George's County. Hosted in the Gateway Arts District for the second time, this Prince George's County Juried Exhibition is our chance to show off the important contributions that artists in our county make to contemporary art throughout the region.

PURCHASE AWARDS - Over $2,000 The Sky's the Limit will feature two purchase awards totalling over $2,000.

JUROR Michael B. Platt is a 2007 recipient of the prestigious Franz and Virginia Bader Fund Grant. Long known as a printmaker, Platt now prefers the more encompassing designation, "imagemaker." His artwork recently has turned to digital imagery and book art that combines image and poetry-fragments, allowing us glimpses of ourselves.
