The winning photographer will have their project published as a FotoEvidence book. In addition, one project may be selected for a $1000 support award. This award will be granted for continued work on a project or to a project that does not have enough material to justify a book.

Kristen Densmore MFA Thesis Opening This Friday

Title: The Nature of Containment
Dates: January 19th-25th
Gallery Hours: 10am-4pm, or by appointment
Opening Reception: Friday, January 21  6-9pm
Venue: Oglethorpe Gallery, 406 E. Oglethorpe Ave.

The Nature of Containment is a photographic installation which explores the complicated relationship between humans and the natural world.

I believe that zoos and aquariums are metaphoric for the human relationship to the non-human world. Both the modern zoo and photography were conceived of during the Victorian era.  I'm using a 'Victorian lens' to explore the idea of how we perceive and relate to the natural world, especially animals.  One of the main parts of the installation will consist of photographic images printed on leaves.  I will be displaying them in handmade wooden boxes that are reminiscent of insect collection boxes of the 1800's. The leaves will be pinned inside the boxes like specimens.  The boxes are made completely with locally salvaged antique wood.  Photographic silhouettes and stereoscopes will also be on display.

Call For Entry- "Photography Unseen" - Deadline 01/28/2011

Desotorow Gallery announces a call to artists for “Photography Unseen,” an exhibition to

be held Feb. 18 - March 1, 2011. Our culture is inundated by the photographic image.

Everyday of our lives we face a multitude of varying photographs. Yet, we rarely

contemplate the implications of a single picture. Instead, we have become desensitized

and too often this rich form of information is taken for granted. Photography Unseen is

an exhibition that invites artists to address this concern via a unique perspective, there are

no photographs allowed. The subject is photography but all mediums except the

photographic print may be included. Perhaps this strategy will spawn a more dynamic

appreciation for something we encounter so often.

The juried exhibition “Photography Unseen” is open to national and international artists

of all levels. To be considered, an entry form, entry fee, artist statement and digital

images of the artwork should be submitted to Desotorow Gallery by 5 pm, Jan. 28, 2011.

A $20 submission fee allows for the submission of up to 3 pieces of work. Artists will

receive notification of the list of selected pieces through email on Jan. 31.

Further information about submitting work for the exhibition “Photography Unseen,”

including a complete list of dates, submission guidelines and forms, can be found at

Any questions about Desotorow Gallery and this exhibition can be addressed by calling

912.355.8204 or emailing
