The Exhibition Class is designed for students who have at least completed The Show Class.

Framed photographs will be displayed in at least two, and possibly three, venues in the greater Chicago area during 2020. The class will meet weekly, beginning Monday, May 4th to June 22nd 2020.

Applications for this class will include submission of three representative images reflecting this year’s theme, “SPACES”. The three images must be a selection of a broader body of work. Each applicant’s images will be judged on how they reflect the theme, artistic value, composition and technical processing. Images will be reviewed by the instructor and curator of the exhibition and other staff members, who will make the selection of photographers.

For the first class, Monday May 4th 2020, the selected students are required to bring all their images related to the 3 images submitted. Those images might be included in the portfolio created during the class. The portfolio will include an artist statement and a well-written biography.

The students will also learn about editions and how to price their work.

Guest lecturers will provide specific expertise on selected topics.

From the images in the portfolio, six pieces by each artists will be chosen for the Exhibitions.

Publicity for each exhibition will be conducted by a combination of the venue and RSCPC.

The shows will last between two weeks and a month, depending on the venue’s needs. Each venue will retain a percentage of any sales, with the remainder for the photographer.

A minimum of five students is required to conduct this class; a maximum of eight students will be selected for this class.

The 2020 show theme will be “SPACES”

For many people ‘space’ is the definition of a place or an environment. It represents landscapes and scenes from urban and natural life.

The term ‘space’ though, can be read also a physical distance between objects and people.

What happens when those ‘spaces’ are the ones that we create for ourselves? They become personal spaces, places we feel comfortable in, that are dear to our hearts or can make our souls move.

Submit 3 images reflecting the theme, ‘SPACES’ via  e-mail to rscpcexhibition@gmail.com.

Please note: images must be 72ppi jpeg files.

The best entries will define the list of artists chosen for the class.

Submission Deadline: Sunday, March 29th, 2020

A minimum of five students is required to conduct this class; a maximum of eight students will be selected for this class.

    This class exceeded my expectations. If you take this class, you will work closely, one-on-one, with Federica to choose images for the show. Each week you’ll learn something new about putting together work for an exhibition — how to choose the best photographic paper to display your work, how to write an artist statement, how to price your work, and how to mat and frame. Because the class is small, you will get to know your fellow artists well. Also, because you are working independently and in close consultation with the instructor, you may not actually see your fellow students’ work until the show is almost ready to hang. Our last week “reveal” was almost as fun as the opening of the first show.
