Attention all professional, intermediate and novice photographers, the Painted Bride Art Center is asking for people to submit photos Philadelphia trees for a gallery exhibit they’re hosting in September.
The exhibit is part of the Painted Bride’s RE-PLACE-ing Philadelphia project, which is built on the foundation of public dialogue and interaction, using art as a lens for viewing Philadelphia’s history and re-envisioning its future.
Here’s all you have to do is submit a photo of your most memorable tree via e-mail to [email protected] along with two sentences on why you selected the tree and where it is/was located. The organization will print out all of the photos and hang them in the gallery this fall. Oh and don’t forget to include your contact information so you can receive an invitation to the opening.
Submissions close August 10, 2015.
The Painted Bride Art Center is home to an intimate theater and gallery in Old City. It was founded in 1969 by a group of visual artists. In an era when underrepresented artists—women, gays and lesbians, people of color, the disabled, etc.—struggled to gain recognition from commercial institutions the Painted Bride, with a network of organizations strove to grant artists of every stripe full control over their work and a platform for their vision.
