NOPA seeks entries by March 3 for alternative process exhibit

NOPA is seeking entries by Sunday, March 3 for “Another Way of Seeing: Alternative Process Exhibition,” an exhibit to focus on work by contemporary artists who stay true to antique, once-lost processes in a digital age.

The exhibit will open at the NOPA gallery in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District (1111 St. Mary Street) on Saturday, April 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. The show will run through Saturday, May 18.

Among the alternative processes sought in entries are daguerreotypes, wet plate collodion, tintypes, ambrotypes, cyanotypes, albumen, gum-bichromate and platinum/palladium.

Serving as juror will be Christopher James, chair of the photography program at The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. He is the author of The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, as well as an internationally recognized artist and photographer whose paintings and photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide.

James will choose around 30 images for the exhibition.

The entry fees are as follows: $25 for NOPA members and $40 for non-members. Non-members may also pay a $55 for a combination of entry and NOPA membership. Entry may be completed at the NOPA website, after creation of an officially-named, “Entry Thingy” account.
