The good folks in Pike County, Georgia who are responsible for the SlowExposures juried show and photography festival have announced their plans for the Fall 2017 show.
This year is the 15th annual show, and will be up September 14th - 17th, 2017, in "the intimate, relaxed setting [of] the rural countryside" of Pike County, in west central Georgia.
This year's event is being called "Unplugged," always a good idea. The organizers "invite photographers to submit work that underscores the diversity, contradictions, and complexity of the rural American South."
The Call for Entries for this show is here. Deadline for submission of work is midnight, Sunday, June 18th, 2017.
Also planned for SlowExposures will be over a dozen satellites shows, to be on view in locations that are also on the National Register of Historic Places as documenting Pike County's historic past as a leading cotton producer in southern Georgia.
Applicants for 2017 Main Exhibition are also entitled to enter the PopUp Show juried by John Bennette and the 2018 SlowAIR Artist in Residence opportunity at no additional cost.
I am honored to join with Atlanta's Arnika Dawkins, owner of Atlanta's Arnika Dawkins Gallery, as jurors for this year's Main Exhibition.
The work we choose for the Main Exhibition will also be on view at the Cochran Gallery in LaGrange, Georgia for a month after the SlowEx weekend.
I know I speak for Arnika in joining with the folks in Pike County to invite you to enter work, and plan to "join photographers and photography lovers from across the U.S. to 'unplug' in September in Pike County."
This is a wonderful opportunity, not only to share the experience of SlowExposures, but also to "learn, network, and have fun during this extraordinary weekend."
We plan to see you there!
