Attention All Members: Group Gallery Show

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • When I assumed the leadership of this group, one of the goals I set was to have a gallery show of our collective work. That goal has taken a step closer. The Merrick Art Gallery in New Brighton, Pa. has agreed to review our work for consideration for a show possibly as early as the end of this year but more likely the early part of next year. The Merrick (www.merrickartgallery.org) is small but prestigious gallery that houses an extraordinary collection of 18th,19th and 20th Century European and American masterwork paintings. For those who have always wanted to exhibit their work, this is a fabulous opportunity. What do you need to do, you may ask? I need as many members as possible to pick three to four of their best images, any subject matter. Send them to my e-mail address ([masked]). I will collect them to a CD and submit them to the Merrick board for review.
    Digital dimension of each image should be in jpeg format with a screen size no larger than 5x7 and saved at 300dpi. File size is limited to 5 MB or less. Each image should be labeled as follows: Artist's name, title of work, year created, medium (eg: Krachinski, Lone Tree, 2013, photograph, jpeg). The deadline for this is June 9th. The Merrick committee is meeting the following week. That still gives you two weeks to pick your best work. Nothing has to be matted or framed  so don't panic about that yet. We have over 100 members now so I expect a nice collection of work. I am looking for as much cooperation as possible.

    John, I resubmitted my 3 images on July 2 and have not heard back whether you received them or not. Please let me know whether you have received my images or not.

    July 12

    • John K.

      Yes, Nancy, I got them. My apologies, I thought I had already replied back.

  • Polly W.

    I sent along a bunch of images last month but never heard back after asking for a confirmation that you received them. Please advise.

    John, I resubmitted my 4 samples for the Merrick Gallery. Let me know today if you don't receive them.

    July 2

  • Gordon S.

    John, I just sent my samples to your email account. Let me know if you do not receive them today. I will try to attend the next meeting. Any idea how much advance notice you would normally give? Being retired you would think I have "mucho" free time.
    Anyway, thanks for setting all this up.

    Hello, John, thank you for presenting this opportunity to us! I sent 3 photos to you June 18. I surely would like to know if you received them. Please let me know. Thank you.

    • John K.

      Hi Nancy, they must have gone to my junk mail. Could you send them again please.

      July 1

    • Nancy S.

      Yes, John, I just now resubmitted the photos. They have the subject line "Resubmit John K. 3 photos for Pgh Fine Art Photographers Group Show. Please let me know if you receive them. Thank you.

    I am confused. I just received this notice in my email inbox but the entry date you listed is June 9th.

    Is it too late to submit my work for review?

    July 1

    • John K.

      No, Gordon, it isn't! You have about another week. I extended the deadline. Get the images to me as soon as you can. Welcome to the group and try to make it to one of the Meet-ups.

    I have had the opportunity to exhibit here recently in the Merrick Masters series that is currently running until July 6. My submissions were sold immediately upon opening of the program. The gallery is definitely quite interesting.

    • John K.

      Michael, I spoke to the gallery yesterday and I mentioned that you had already shown your work to them but they said that you should submit it again anyway. BTW, your pieces are very interesting and well done.

    • Michael

      Thx John for the nice compliment!

  • Kristina S.

    John,

    Should we include our copyright on our images?

    June 14

    • John K.

      I don't think it's necessary.

      June 14

  • Scott S.

    Hi John! Just joined the group. Is it too late to send you images?

    June 12

    • John K.

      Actually, no it isn't! I spoke to the people from the gallery yesterday and I have the opportunity to extend the deadline an additional three weeks. So get you images sent in and thanks for joining. I am scheduling a meet-up for next week, please try to attend.

  • Polly W.

    Hi John!
    I sent along images a while back. Did you receive them?

    June 12

  • Carol P

    John, how do you want us to label the work? Should it be in the title of each image file? Should we add it to the photo itself? Or should we include a list of titles in the email?

    May 28

    • John K.

      Add it to each image you submit.

      May 28

  • Robert K.

    Do these images need to be the images we intend to show, or are they just a sample of work?

    May 28

    • John K.

      At this point I think that they want to see examples, but at the same time they should be images that you would want to show.

      May 28

  • Nancy S.

    I'm in.

    May 28

  • Polly W.

    Great opportunity! Will begin culling through my images for submissions.
