Link Round-up & Calls for Entry

February 21st, 2017
Here's a long post that gathers links and notices from our twitter and facebook in recent days. Enjoy!

SCAD graduate, former Atlantan, and current Ph.D candidate at UC San Diego, Tara-Lynne Pixley has a piece for Newsweek's photolab about inequities in photojournalism, and the "corrective collectives" that are inspiring change.

"Lauded photojournalism organization World Press Photo (WPP) released its second “State of News Photography” report in November 2016, a document that addressed many key issues affecting contemporary photojournalists. Most striking was the fact that of the nearly 2,000 news photographers surveyed internationally, a mere 15 percent were female. Also concerning was the revelation that 65 percent were from Western nations, specifically Europe, the United States and Australia. These two statistics reveal that the vast majority of news images are produced by Western-born men. This is the dominant point of view through which the entire world continues to see and understand itself."
Atlanta-based photographer Sarah Hobbs has work currently on view at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, and here's a write-up about the exhibition: "Obsession permeates artist Sarah Hobbs' distressing habitats.

Jerry Siegel has work on view at the Mobile Museum of Art in a show curated by 2013 ACP portfolio reviewer Richard McCabe.

Sheila Pree Bright gave a talk last week for ATL Photo Night, a Facebook-led effort from Kevin D. Liles and Raymond McCrea Jones, hosting "free monthly talks by local photographers and artists." Definitely follow them on Facebook for details of their next event on March 23rd.

Atlanta Magazine has a piece about "How to buy and collect photography in Atlanta" that features some great advice from area experts.

Atlanta School of Photography starts classes on March 6th!

There are three days until the deadline for the Hambidge Creative Hive Project.

"For three months this spring, The Hambidge Center will re-imagine Atlanta’s bustling city center into a creative enclave of working studios, installations and experimental projects. With a major renovation planned later in the year, Colony Square has partnered with the Hambidge Center to provide inspired artists and thinkers a unique opportunity to explore and share their work."
Also due on the 23rd is this call for entries for Atlanta Jazz Festival & Chastain Arts Center.


The call for entries for THE FENCE 2017 is currently open, and the first deadline is March 14th.

"The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts was established in 2001 in honor of William H. Johnson, an American artist known primarily for his Scandinavian landscapes and his witty and poignant depictions of African-American daily life.

Recognizing that minority artists often need economic assistance, the foundation seeks to encourage artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for the 2017 William H. Johnson Prize.

The prize is awarded annually to an early-career African-American artist working in the area of painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation, and/or a new genre. For award purposes, "early career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year the prize is awarded. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible, so long as they have not been working as an artist for more than twelve years.

The 2017 prize recipient will receive $25,000. The winner will be announced in December 2017. RFP is here with a Nov. 16th deadline."
Our friends at Atlanta Photography Group have a call for entries: Where Are We? that's looking at "the constant changes in both the social and physical landscape of today’s world, including environmental and climate change issues, and political and social movements such as gentrification and immigration." Juror for the show is Alan Rothschild of the Do Good Fund.
