Call for Entry - The Naked Print:  - A Juried National Photography Exhibition       https://www.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=5613 

The Naked Print: A call for work with no boundary layer, no barrier between the viewer and the work. This is your chance to go topless, no glass, no glazing, display your work without reflections.  Explore the physical qualities of ink or emulsion on paper, without hiding surface, texture and material under glass. Open to all subject matter, a juried call to celebrate the physicality of the print itself, the naked print.

Lose prints, top mounted prints, prints on aluminum, canvas, or fabric are some of the options. Sculptural works and handmade books are also welcome. Float frames are acceptable as are conventionally framed and or matted work so long as there is no glazing. This call is open to all forms of photography and all photo based work, alternative processes and photo based printmaking. The only requirement is that the work includes some form of photographic process and that you build no walls or barriers between the viewer and the work - no glass, no plexi unless it's behind the print! Show us your true colors and go topless!

Open Call for photographic work of any subject matter in any style, the only restriction is no barrier between the work and the viewer.

Juror: Stephen Fisher, Steven is a master printmaker and professor at Rhode Island Collage. Stephan earned an M.F.A. in printmaking from Yale University and has spent the better part of the past 35 years teaching printmaking. In addition Stephen is an accomplished artist with a unique application of glass plate printmaking as part of his practice.

Fisher’s work has been exhibited in a variety of national and international venues and earned numerous awards in a wide range of competitions. His drawings and prints can be found in numerous public, corporate and private collections. Public recognition of Fisher’s efforts include 3 Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Fellowships and a regional N.E.A. Fellowship.

Stephen has a fascination with the viscosity of light and the tactile, sensual quality of materials. Recognized for his hyper realistic drawings and prints he freely admits that on the most basic level all of his images are just so much dirt on paper. The tactile presence of material compulsively manipulated is perhaps the only real part of this realism. http://www.stephenfisherartist.com/
