Taking a Chance on Photography
“Our motto is, When the economy tanks, open an art gallery!” Rick Clark says.
The PhotoPlace Gallery, which opened June 20, displays themed exhibitions featuring work by photographers from all over the country. The gallery is part of the Vermont Photography Workplace, an initiative headed up by husband and wife Rick Clark and Kirsten Hoving.
“The mission of the Vermont Photography Workplace is to support contemporary photography as a means of creative expression and cultural insight. VPW sponsors educational activities, including workshops, portfolio reviews, guest speakers, as well as exhibition opportunities through regional and national juried exhibits. Our goal is to create an environment where photographers of all ages and abilities can explore and nurture their creative potential. Our PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont, is the site of our exhibitions and related activities.”
It’s not often when you find a call for entry that adds “To help artists defray the costs of exhibiting their work, all accepted photographs will be matted and framed by VPW at no charge.” The next Call for Entry is on Dreams and Fantasies, curated by Elizabeth Siegfried. Take a look.
