Alternative To What?
Broadening the Definition of Photography
In the 1970’s, the term “alt process” emerged, which referred to a resurgence in the practice of numerous photographic processes other than the traditional darkroom-based print. Since digital methods have become mainstream, what does “alt process” mean now? Sulfur Studios is seeking submissions that explore creative capture or output of photographic imagery. Examples may include non-silver processes, pinhole camera imagery, darkroom-based manipulation, photographic mixed media, and new approaches to digital-based output.
All work must be shipped or hand delivered to the gallery by March 19th, 2018. Delivery to and from Sulfur Studios is the responsibility of the Artist. Work must arrive ready to display, and cannot be larger than 7 feet in height, 75 pounds in weight, and must fit through a standard doorway.
Work does not have to be for sale, however all sales will be handled by Sulfur Studios and a 30% commission will be retained by the gallery. Work will be handled with care, but all art is exhibited at the artist’s risk.
There is a $15.00 submission fee to enter up to 3 pieces. Additional work can be submitted if an additional entry fee is paid.
Entries will be juried by a committee of Sulfur Studios members with special guest Juror Bridget Conn.

In 2009, she relocated to Asheville, NC where she taught at several colleges, while working as an arts writer, designer, and independent artist.
