Presented by the 2023 Silver City CLAY Festival and Light Art Space


The Still(ed) Life:  Celebrating Handmade Photographic Art

In what often seems like an increasingly chaotic and fast-moving world, finding the beauty in stillness seems ever more meaningful.  In this call, we celebrate the creation of the handmade print, using historic/alternative photographic printing techniques.  All 2-D and 3-D handmade art is acceptable. Straight digital prints do not qualify. We look forward to seeing your own unique interpretations of The Still(ed) Life.

Deadline to submit: June 30
