Call to Photographers: psalmsIMAGEand…


The images of Psalms will be the subject of the interaction between Fred Spinowitz and 5 photographers at the IONA Art Gallery, New Rochelle, NY in September 2016.
Selected artists will have 3 framed 11”x14” images in the show.

The artists and viewers will have a visual conversation integrated with the poetry of PSALMS. To encourage a visual dialogue we plan on having an unlined sketchbook and marker at each of the Psalms on view (about 15). Instructions will ask viewers to write/draw their impressions of the Psalm that they are looking  at and experiencing as they explore the paintings and  photographs set in matched pairs.

Fred Spinowitz has created 150 watercolor/print mixed media on paper (12X16”). Of the total portfolio 15 will be framed to correspond to the work of each participating artist.  The entire Spinowitz portfolio will be available in the Gallery. As each artist selects a Psalm and sentence from the series list provided by Mr. Spinowitz, that selection will no longer be available as a subject for the next artist. Artists are encourage to make early selection and await confirmation before submission.

A list of Psalms and sentences from each will be sent in a separate email.

To be considered, please send via email  three images of  work in JPEG format (300 dpi) 1.3mb or smaller by May 15, 2016 to fred@spinowitzjudaica.com. Please include your name and the titles of your artworks on the subject line of your email.
