Last year was our first opportunity to exhibit at Indiana Landmarks Center!
This year, we're back with a bigger and better show!
Again, we're concentrating on "history"... not just those gloriously beautiful old homes, but the focus this year is "Windows, Gates, and Doors"... historical windows, gates, and doors ... portals of historic Indy! So, this year, it's not neighborhoods, but specific objects ... HISTORY- LADEN PORTALS ... the windows, gates, and doors.
Neighborhood boundaries are not a big factor either; all of the neighborhoods, war memorial, cultural or warehouse areas are included. Any location considered to be within the confines of historical metro Indy can be included.
The Lobby will be the starting place. Three easels will be stationed to welcome visitors, each holding a poster-sized print, chosen by a judge outside the club from those submitted from the 17 wall participants.
Then going to the lower level, the Signature photos that will both separate and identify the three areas (Windows, Gates, and Doors), will be showcased. The Signature photos also will be chosen by a judge from submissions by the 17 wall participants.
Wall Hangings - (Final specifications)
All photos must be framed Minimum size of 11” x 14” outer dimensions of frame Can NOT be larger than the Signature picture (24” x 36”) Mats and prints can be individualized (any size) Maximum of 3 photos per rod. Criteria for Photos for the November 2 Exhibit
at the Indiana Landmark
(And) for the 3-Person Jury:
The subject of a photograph for "Windows, Gates, and Doors" must convey heavy emphasis on the target subjects -- windows, gates and doors in historic Indianapolis. Periphery subjects can be included in photos, as long as those periphery subjects are a clear secondary component in the composition and/or do not distract primary focus of the subject windows/gates/doors. It should be absolutely clear that a window(s), gate(s) or a door(s) is the primary subject in such a photo.
For photos in the prime display positions (lobby easels and signature wall photos), it will be left to jurors to ascertain that the above guidelines are met and to accept or reject any photos on that basis. Photos depicting, for example, a full house on the premise that the photographer feels that the structure's full body of windows should be construed as the primary subject, or that it satisfies the definition of a target subject (windows, gates, doors) will be a decision of the jury.
Prime Display Positions:
1. 3 easels in Lobby with one photo on each
2. 1 wall “Signature” photo for each subject: windows, gates, and doors
3. Lobby and wall Signature photos can be vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape) orientation
4. None of these high-profile photos will be framed
5. IMUPC will expense these 6 photos (2 areas with 3 photos each)
6. Only 8x10 (or) 8x12 prints of photos will be considered for Jury review
7. Up to five photos per category may be submitted to the jury for consideration
8. For Jury review - deadline for submission is September 15
9. Photos selected for the easels may be duplicated in the wall hangings as a framed work of art and
