Call for SNAP Submissions – Summer 2017|Annual JCC Show

SNAP would like to invite each of you to submit entries for our annual JCC show, to be held at the Gordon Jewish Community Center (http://www.nashvillejcc.org/) on Percy Warner Blvd during the month of August. This is traditionally the major exhibition for SNAP each year, so we want to encourage everyone to participate.

Theme: There is no “theme” for this show, but the JCC can reject photos with images of full frontal nudity, violent subject matter, and religious symbolism. They are looking for “family friendly” images. Past shows have highlighted a broad variety of subjects and styles.

Juror:  The juror for this exhibit is Jerry Park (http://jerryparkphotography.com ), who many SNAP members know.  Park is a founding member of the SouthLight Salon, and featured at The Arts Company. Continue reading

SNAP Notes…

June is becoming a great month for SNAP! It began with hanging our 5th Annual Juried Exhibition at Gordon Jewish Community Center along with the revival of our “Push-Pin” show in the small gallery. Many thanks to Paul Polycarpou for judging the submissions, to Carrie Mills for curating and to Kay Ramming and Denny Adcock for organizing the Push-Pin show. Many thanks also go to David Morel for his yoeman efforts with graphics and promotion, and to Emily Passino  and Wesley Duffee-Brown for their organizational work and co-ordination of the submission process.

gallery Snap June Show. We will be having a Push Pin Show in the
smaller side gallery.

Folks who have been long time Snap members will remember our past
Push Pin Shows. For newer members here’s how it works:: We have 25
spaces to offer, each space is 5 feet (2 wall panels) Please see
below image for how to hang your photos. You may have up to 6 images
no larger than 11 x 14, they will be UNFRAMED and UNMATED, must have
a border as you will hang with push pins on those borders.x The past
shows were very popular as you could offer your art to the public at
a reduced price. Please remember the JCC does take 30% of sales.
