1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition

Cats... love 'em or hate 'em, they surround us. They rule our world with a furry sharp-clawed fist. They allow us to live with them — as long as we abide by their rules. Step out of line, and you will feel their wrath. So... what's a human to do? PHOTOGRAPH THEM, of course!

That's right, 1650 Gallery is hosting a juried photo exhibition of the love 'em or leave 'em world of cats. While we're thinking mostly of Felis Domestica (the common house cat), if you have shots of lions, tigers, panthers, leapords or any of the big cats, they work too! Whether it's cute kitties or prowling hunters, farm cat or city kitty — if it's feline-based you're good to go. We're even looking for girls in cat suits! So what's new, pussycat? This month 1650 investigates the fascinating world of this complex and fascinating creature... THE CAT.

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT? group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.

AWARDS: Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of photographic excellence.

All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting the word out about artists we're excited about helps you do more great work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.

Submit Now!

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% sales commission. We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition.
