Dec. 31, 2007 Portland, Oregon – Studio Art Direct is currently curating a permanent art collection for a downtown Portland boutique hotel. We are accepting submissions from photographers until January 14, 2007.
For this project, we are specifically interested in abstracted landscape and nature images of Oregon and Portland – our vineyards, trees & forests, lakes and streams, beaches, high desert, cattle, ranching and farming, orchards and etc. Photographs can also be of downtown Portland shots that depict how nature interacts in our beautiful urbanscape. Our goal is to show the beauty of nature both in our city and out in the hinterlands of Oregon. Our mission is to have people who stay at this hotel experience a bit of Oregon’s wild and natural beauty from the perspective of modern photography.
Photos must be black and white with a preference for those shot in infrared. The images must be slightly abstracted with care in creating a unique look at nature through modern eyes. No Mt. Hood, Multnomah Falls, or other “typical calendar type shots” will be accepted. Images must be horizontal. Final images will be printed to about 20″ x 30″.
Up to 8 artists will be chosen for this project. Studio Art Direct will handle the image printing and framing. The purpose is for wall art décor and there will be no other usage. The budget for royalty image use is relatively small. Emerging artists are encouraged to submit. Each artist/photographer chosen will provide 15 – 30 images. You must be an artist residing in Oregon or Washington to be considered.
Submit jpeg sample images to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 14, 2008. Please provide a description of the images within your email.
