The Summer Project – You Have to Plan Early

Sure, it may say “Summer” and you think you have a lot of time, but this stuff is planned far in advance.
The Foley Gallery has this great concept for a Summer exhibition.
The deadline is supposed to be o Oct. 15th, but we just spoke with the organizer and they will be able to work out something with you for later submissions. Our apologies for not getting this to you sooner.

“The Project”

The project was conceived as an opportunity for photographers to share and exhibit their work in a prominent and supportive gallery setting. The project is also about education. Together we will create an environment where 12 photographers can come together as a community and work toward a common goal. FOLEYgallery will offer individual guidance, feedback and support to ensure a dynamic experience.

For the 12 photographers that are chosen to participate in the project, this will begin a unique journey. You will all be working toward creating your own summer exhibition. A theme will be decided upon by the curatorial panel. You will be able to create new work while maintaining what it is that makes your photography unique.

In the months between January and May, you will be given personal guidance and feedback from Michael Foley on your newly created work. Since we are initially selecting work based on its merit and not a specific theme, we imagine having a very diverse group of participating photographers who approach the same theme from several different viewpoints.

Each photographer will be responsible for shipping, matting/framing and printing of their work. All work will be insured while at the gallery.”

Plus there is more coming with a student version of this.
We have to say, Michale Foley is doing some very cool things for the fine art photo world, and we support his efforts.
