Greer Muldowney is an artist, photography professor, and independent Curator living in Somerville, Massachusetts.  She is the regional coordinator for the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Festival, and was recently selected as one of the 2014 PDN30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch and today she shares work from an exhibition that she is extremely proud of, Undergraduate Photography Now! (Part 2) opening Friday, April 25th, 6-8PM at 530 Harrison Boston, MA.

Greer writes: The Flash Forward Festival is celebrating it’s 4th year in Boston at the end of this month. Many photographers know of the annual photography competition, traveling exhibition and book publication, but that is just a segment of what the Festival brings to the table.  Flash Forward offers an in-depth experience through organized networking events and educational programming that brings internationally respected industry professionals together to share their knowledge. With programming that includes curated indoor and outdoor exhibitions, partnerships with galleries throughout Boston and 4 days of lectures, panel discussions, and nightly events.  As part of this large-scale event, the organizers (myself included) try to celebrate photographers from all facets- from the international rising star to local community leaders, to up-and-coming student artists, ready to be introduced to the industry.

I mention students, as this was a segment of our community that needed more inclusion in our programming, as well as an introduction to all of the talent the Flash Forward has brought to Boston.   In it’s second year, I partnered with photographer and educator Jonathan Gitelson to jury an exhibition of some of the best and brightest college Juniors and Seniors enrolled in a college photography program in any of the New England States: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont, during the 2013–2014 academic year. All formats and categories of photography were accepted to highlight the vast talents of these future photography professionals and artists.

Undergraduate Photography Now” has become a highlight of the festival, and for many of our student, their first exhibition opportunity. Those selected are given a gallery show in the SoWa Art’s District of Boston, among many of the city’s prestigious galleries, and a portfolio walk during the festival at Gallery Kayafas, attended by photographic professionals, collectors and educators, alike.  This event is partnered with the “[Photo]gogues” exhibition, a celebration of local photography faculty, organized by the Griffin Museum of Photography’s Paula Tognarelli and Frances Jakubek.

Please enjoy a digital rendition of this year’s exhibition below, and if you are in the Boston area, please join us for the opening of this exhibition during our Pre-Festival events!
