Theme: Black and White

The Black Box Gallery is pleased to announce a black and white juried group photography show. Often there is a classic, nostalgic, and dynamic translation of images to black and white photography. Black and white work has an important tradition of well-crafted, luminous, and thoughtfully composed imagery. Contemporary photographers who are involved in this dialog of history and tradition, add their own modern voice, visions, and aesthetics of imagery. 

Juror: Todd Johnson

Todd Johnson is the director and founder of the Black Box Gallery. He received his MFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. Todd has been a portfolio reviewer for Photolucida and has juried The Drawers Program for Blue Sky Gallery. He has worked as an independent photography curator organizing shows by international photographers in Portland, OR, at Linfield College and Gallery Homeland. For 15 years he has been a college photography instructor in Portland. He has exhibited his photographic work in Portland OR, at The University of Oregon (White Box Gallery), Marylhurst University (The Art Gym), Pacific Northwest College of Art, Reed College, Linfield College, FalseFront Gallery and Augen Gallery. National exhibitions include Bushwick Open Studios (Brooklyn, NY), Carroll Square Gallery (Washington, DC), Hi Lo Gallery (Olympia, Washington), Davis and Cline Gallery (Ashland, Oregon), Midway Gallery (Bloomington, Illinois) and The Diego Rivera Gallery (San Francisco, California). 

The Deadline to Enter: July 10th, 2020

Exhibition Dates: August 1st-20th, 2020

Please Note: Black Box Gallery will be open by appointment only during August due to COVID-19. 

Each exhibition will have 24 photographs selected by the juror for exhibiton at the gallery.

An additional 30 photographs will be selected by the juror for exhibition in our on-line gallery annex.

All 54 photographs from the show will be included in a catalog available for purchase on Blurb Books.

Rules/Guidelines: Black Box will provide Free printing, Free matting and Free framing for all of our exhibitions. The photographers who are selected into the exhibition by the juror will provide a high resolution Tiff or JPEG file for our gallery to print.

We have 18” x 24” black frames. Our white mats are pre cut for 12” x 18”, 12” x 12” and 12” x 16” prints (we also have a few other odd sized matts). We print on an Epson Stylus Pro archival ink jet printer, on Epson Premium Luster Photo paper, in a color-calibrated environment. This is a very accurate custom print, just like a custom lab would print, we have over 25 years of custom printing experience. 

All exhibition prints will be kept in a flat file after the show for future sale and promotion for the photographer. This will allow the gallery to further promote our photographers and exhibitions to collectors, curators, critics and to the general public. Black Box will shread all gallery prints after 5 years of exhibition in the flat files. 

File agreement for accepted photographers: Black Box will only print one exhibition print. If there is a sale inquiry, the photographer will be notified before a sale is confirmed, edition information will be discussed with photographer, the photographer will be sent a authentication document to be signed and go with the print to the collector. No sale or printing of file will happen without prior consent and agreement of photographer. All rights remain to the file and print with the photographer, to be used only with their prior consent. Exhibition print will not be sold, but used in our flatfile at Black Box Gallery only to promote the photographers work. 

Black Box Gallery takes a 50% commission on all sales, 50% goes to the photographer. If artist prefers the print does not have to be for sale. Print will be for exhibition and promotion only. 

Notification: All photographers will be notified 10-12 days after the deadline about juror selections.
