1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
Windows & Doors

If life is a journey, what part do windows and doors play? Doors can welcome us in or shut us out, or sometimes lock us in. Doors can offer us escape; adventure, the romance of new beginnings -- heading for adventure and leaving the past behind with the finality of that final slam possibilities. Doors can represent uncertainty and mystery of what's beyond the door.

Why does the window play such an important part in our collective psyche? More than the door, the window offers up hope; a portal to our imagination and through that to an imagined world beyond what we see... windows offer us a chance at a world beyond: escape, elopements, serenades and secret loves.

In a nutshell we think WINDOWS & DOORS offer us possibilities, and we want to see your take on this broad and inviting theme! Push the boundaries, or go classic and literal. We want it all and most of all we encourage you to do great work – climb out that window, run out that door or look at that view from the corner office. This time at 1650 there's a lot to see through your WINDOWS & DOORS photography!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the Windows & Doors 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.

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% sales commission.

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.
