All photographs by Ellen Tew.
The 2017 SlowExposures’ PopUp Tour will consist of six shows – solo or group, staged in nontraditional venues in and around Zebulon, GA. This year visitors will be directed to individual shows through our program. We will have incentives to visit each PopUp Show, so your work will have a better chance of being seen by all the visitors to SlowExposures.
The PopUp Tour will be open for visitors between Friday and Sunday afternoons and will be a signature Saturday afternoon event, culminating in the PopUp Raffle at SlowExposures Saturday night dinner. Make sure you check out the fine print below.
Our PopUp Juror for 2017 is Jeff Rich.
Jeff Rich’s work focuses on water issues ranging from recreation and sustainability to exploitation and abuse. Jeff explores these subjects by using long-term photographic documentations of very specific regions of the United States. Jeff received his MFA in photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. His Watershed Project has toured nationally since 2012, with shows in New York City; Portland, OR; Asheville, NC; Bloomington, IN; Akron, OH; Amherst, MA; Morgantown, WV; Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA. His book, “Watershed: The French Broad River” was awarded the 2010 Critical Mass Book Award, and was published as a monograph in 2012. His work has been featured in Fraction Magazine, Flak Photo and as one of Daylight Magazine’s monthly podcasts. Jeff is an Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa, in the Art and Art History Department. He has shot assignments for the New York Times, The Sierra Club, and several other national publications. Jeff also curates the weekly series Eyes on the South for Oxford American Magazine. In 2017 Fall Line Press will publish the book “Watershed: The Tennessee River.”
The fine print:
PopUp shows should be set up by noon Friday, September 15 and kept open through 3:00 p.m., Sunday, September 17. Arrangements may be made to have “sitters” man your show so that you can participate in other SlowExposures’ events.
Lighting and free-standing display accessories are up to you.
Participants will be asked to donate one matted print per artist to be part of the PopUp Raffle at the Saturday night dinner.
Juried-in participants will be encouraged to deliver a memorable visitor experience to achieve publicity and sales. We’ll provide the venues, the programs, the signage and maps, and the marketing. You’ll be included in our invitation-only dinners on Thursday and Friday nights. And, we’ll do our best to find you a place to stay in Pike County for the weekend!
The application fee is $15 (free for those who apply by the June 18th deadline for the main show).
The application deadline is July 23, 2017.
