I want to remind folks that you have until TOMORROW, Saturday, February 7th to get your submission in the mail (or dropped off at the PRC 12-5pm) for the 14th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition, EXPOSURE.

Seriously photo folks, don’t let this one pass you by! It takes but a second to burn 10 images to a cd and gather your materials! If you join online and don’t have a card, don’t worry, just make a note of it, we check everyone.  Run, don’t walk to the post office. (Not that I am encouraging procrastination, but you can find the branch that is open til the wee hours online for that coveted postmark).

The juror this year is Russel Hart, Executive Editor at American Photo magazine and Editor of American Photo On Campus.  This year, he will be on the jury of AP’s “Emerging Artist” and “Student Portfolio” showcases.

Not only that, but all of us jurors are a part of a secret society (just kidding), but understand that we do talk to each other and recommend artists to each other. Who knows what this might lead to? Not only that, but gathering up a handful of juried show wins at places like the PRC and its other kindred spirits speaks volumes on your resume. A good investment, to be sure.

Read about the submission details and get the required entry form as a PDF here. See pics of last year’s show here. Now, git!

In this new feature, we are showcasing an image per week from our current exhibition, the 13th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition. Robert Knight’s is our 8th to date.

A couple of weeks ago, we concluded a 2 week run of the PRC on Flak Photo. This “web photo happening” spotlighted 10 images from the Juried Show. We’re still a “feature” on their home page,  Also be sure to check out Boston’s own Sage Sohier’s work as well. To see the show on the walls, check out our PRC Flickr page!

I have been a fan of Robert Knight’s work for some time now, so I was tickled when our juror Lesley A. Martin liked his work too.  I featured Robert’s work on Northeast Exposure Online (NEO) in May 2006 – right when he was graduating from MassArt.  Robert is one of our juried show alumni; he was also selected for last year’s exhibition as well by juror Jen Bekman (looks like he’ll also be a 20×200 soon!). This coming fall, he’ll have a show at Gallery Kayafas as well!  Congrats!

From Robert Knight’s statement:
In this subset of my larger “Dwelling” project, I explore the expectations which parents place on their children and which are reinforced by societal institutions, imagery, and traditions.  Through my photographs, I perceive a parent’s hopes and dreams about their child’s future physical image, intelligence, and success, as well as tensions that may exist between these aspirations and reality.  Collectively, I hope this project will make us conscious of children’s pressures and aware of the potential effects of the myriad images to which they are exposed.

The first ever New York Photo Festival is in full swing this weekend. Sadly, taking down the New England Survey exhibition and artists dropping off and overall gallery prep for EXPOSURE: 13th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition is keeping me close to the fold here in Boston. Neverthless, we wish them the best and have a few neat PRC/Boston overlaps to note! Congratulations all!

Our 2008 PRC juror Lesley A. Martin is one of the curators of the festival. She put together a wonderful exhibition, Ubiquitous Image, which includes Penelope Umbrico, represented locally by Bernard Toale Gallery, whom I showed most recently in the PRC exhibition Ad/Agency.

A few names of note made the inaugural NY Photo Awards list under fine art single images and series. Martin Fougeron has been getting a lot of attention as of late and will be in our upcoming juried show. Jessica Todd Harper, who was in the 2005/2006 PRC exhibition Group Portrait, makes the list as does local imagemaker (and the photographer of the Boston Superheros Project) Tanit Sakakini.

When dropping off her work for the juried show yesterday, Claire Beckett told me that she was invited by Laurel Ptak of Aperture and i heart photograph to be on an Aperture panel. She’ll speak on Sunday with photographer Nina Berman, a sort of before and after Iraq. Claire was in our 2006 PRC exhibition, DOCUMENT, and was interviewed this week in Big, Red, and Shiny.

Consider this an open invitation to add any other
connections/kudos in the comments!

For those heading to NY, have a safe trip. Please take lots of pictures and share them with us will you?
