ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to announce our 7th Annual Juried Exhibition. This year’s exhibition was juried by Portland photographer Raymond Meeks. From over 200 entries, Meeks has chosen 25 photographers to show in the Newspace gallery this August. Photographers from all over the country and the world enter the Newspace Juried Exhibition each year. The show is an opportunity to see compelling work from a broad range of national and international talent, drawn together by a juror with a fine-tuned eye for curating great works.


THE ARTISTS
Susan Barnett, Douglas Bienert, Carlos Chavarria, Calvin Chen, Tony Chirinos, Jamila Clark, Jodi Coleman, Lane Collins, Geoff Delanoy, Audra Marie Dewitt, George Dunsmuir, Paul Ford, Clarke Galusha, Susan Gans, Frank Hamrick, Heather Heaton, Melissa Hogan, Thomas Homolya, George Johnson, Jim Leisy, Kerry Mansfield, Marsha Matthews, Shigeru Matthews, David Puntel, and Elizabeth Stone


THE JUROR
Raymond Meeks’ work is in collections at the George Eastman House, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Columbus Museum of Fine Arts, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Bibliotheque Nationale, among others. He exhibits his work nationally and internationally and has published ten monographs of his work, including Sound of Summer Running (2004), Doctrine of an Axe (Nazraeli Press, 2008), and Amwell (Nazraeli Press, 2010). As an artist, Meeks is inspired by collaboration with writers of poetry and short fiction and the merging of visual and word narratives as metaphor. Recently, he’s focused his efforts towards making artist books and journals in response to his immediate surroundings—an interior dialogue which has turned towards a resolution of loss while seeking coherent meaning and pointing, collectively, towards redeeming possibility. Raymond Meeks lives and works in Portland, OR.

BLUE MOON CAMERA & MACHINE STAFF SHOW

August 5th – 28th
Opening Reception: Friday, August 5th 6-9pm


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to host Blue Moon Camera & Machine’s 2011 Staff Show. Blue Moon Camera & Machine is a local photography shop specializing in cameras, typewriters, and optical photographic printing. They are committed to using real film, real light, and real lenses to make real photographs. 2011 marks the shop’s tenth year in operation. The staff has grown to nine of the most dedicated, resourceful folks this side of a manned spaceflight. A thousand times daily, they see the inspiring work that members of the community bring to their lab; in this exhibition, the Blue Moon staff is very pleased to be able to return the favor by showing some of the work they have produced in the last year.
