Get Your Submissions Together for our juried exhibition entitled  “In Habitation“.  The juror for the show will be David Wright, an editorial photographer based out of Maine.  David’s series “Alebtong, Uganda, 2009″ is very well known and he was also the co-founder of the project and exhibition called “Pause to Begin.”

ThemeIn Habitation” is looking for photographs that help explore the landscape and infrastructure of America, the population responsible for it, and the symbiotic relationship between the two.  This exhibition explores the ways in which our urban and rural centers operate and fluctuate, creating a uniquely American dynamic of experience.  This exhibition will ultimately present a socio-graphic interpretation of America- a mapping of people and place.

Circulation- Call for Entries


Call For Entries Artists of All Mediums: Circulation

The strength and value in art is located not solely in its visuality, but also in its ability to circulate as an object, or at the most basic level- its grounds in a circulating idea.

Within a tiny droplet of blood, there are some 5 million red blood cells. It takes about 20 seconds for each of these red blood cells to circle the whole body. These red blood cells will each make approximately 250,000 round trips of the body before being replaced by another red blood cell.

USA Today has a daily circulation of 2,528,437. In one year, that amounts to 922,879,505 reads.

By the end of the Civil War, between one-third and one-half of all U.S. paper currency in circulation was counterfeit.

The ice age cycles were influenced by changes in ocean circulation arising from changes in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

Booksmart Studio is seeking submission of artist works that confront, explore, exploit, challenge, and investigate the modes, methods, and effects of circulation. Keeping in line with the diverse modes of circulation and dissemination, the exhibition is open to all mediums.
The deadline for entry is March 28, 2008.
