CALL FOR ENTRY: Captivar La Luz: A Latino Experience
A Photographic Call for Entries juried by Kathy Vargas of University of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio. $2000 in Cash prizes. Opening at
Blue Star LAB, an annex of Blue Star Art Complex, October 13, 2010 as a part of PHOTOTexas.

The Texas Photographic Society is now inviting amateur and professional photographers to submit digital files of their color and black and white works to TPS by August 14 for the Captivar La Luz: A Latino Experience call for entries. This exhibit is open to all backgrounds, as long as the subject of the work is related to Latin American life, culture, conflict and/or any social or economic issues. To learn more and to enter your project or images.



This exhibition presents recent work by four photographers based in the U.S. all of whom deal, to some degree, with conventions of portraiture. One, Phyllis Galembo, is a New York-based artist who has numerous museum exhibitions and publications to her credit. The other three — Kevin Kline, Herman Mhire, and Sonja Rieger — are based in New Orleans, Lafayette, and Birmingham, respectively, and their works are known primarily to a regional audience. Beyond this immediate geographic distinction, other connections beckon: Mhire and Galembo were both born in the places they currently live, while Rieger is originally from Germany, and Kline from Colorado. All except Kline have supported themselves in part through academic pursuits, and while Mhire and Rieger use digital processes to create their work, Galembo and Kline both work with celluloid film. Nearly all of Galembo’s and Rieger’s subjects are African, Haitian or African-American, a distinction that is not as meaningful in either Kline’s or Mhire’s work. Click for more info.
