this year! Yay! I'm in the second group for site selection! Yay! Um...now what?
I know I'm going to be showing some of my alt. process photos
and some of my traditional B&W photos
. Other than that...I'm stumped. I'd love to hear from former Artomatic participants (or anyone with experience in this kind of unjuried show) about:
Selection: Most spaces will be 8 feet by 10 feet. I think I have room for maybe...10 framed photos? Should I go with one theme? One technique? Or just an overall "portfolio"?
Framing: standardized or not?
Display: We can paint our wall, and (I think) add lighting. I kind of want to do a faux wallpaper thing, but is that too busy? Should I stick with plain white? Or maybe something bold? There's going to be a lot
of art there, I want to stand out but not overwhelm the photos.
Selling: Not sure if I want to sell photos at all, or how to price them if I do.
I guess I also need to think of an artist's statement and how much (if any) explanation I'm going to provide. I'd also appreciate any general advice. Thanks!
