The Duxbury Art Association is one of America's oldest fine arts societies. The Winter Juried Show, held annually, is their flagship exhibition, open to artists around the country. I am proud to have been chosen to be part of it again this year.
Once DAA was more friendly to digital media, which had their own category and prizes. They have taken a step backward of late, and now fold digital imaging in with all of photography.
Digital images and digital photographs are very different media, actually, and even digital photographs differ from traditional chemical-based photography. I don't envy the jurors who must judge work of such diverse kinds as though they were of one. It is like judging mixed media collage with the same criteria as oil painting. Apples and Oranges.
Neither do I expect digital images to fare well with jurors in this environment. After all, their main interest and experience had been with making images on photosensitive silver-emulsions on film and paper. The techniques and aesthetics of such image making are strikingly different digital methods, yet they have had a century and a half head start on digital imaging.
Once a year the Cape Cod Cultural Center sponsors a call for art to decorate the doors of the elevators in their new educational wing. Three images are selected, one for each elevator in the new space, from a field of submissions from around the globe. Here is my entry for this year:
