All life comes from the sea, and sometimes in August in Southern California it seems like all life has returned to the sea, but no matter, because 1650 comes not to bury the sea, but to praise it! That's right, this month we hit the oceans high and low as we tackle both the underwater and above water aspects of the mighty waters of the world. So whether you prefer to shoot sandy beaches at sunset or coral reefs below the surface, moonlit seascapes with crashing waves on rocks or schools of angelfish hurrying through the salty waters below; this month 1650 has got you covered, not in a rub sunscreen on your back kind of way, but rather with the sea of possibility as we go... ABOVE AND BELOW: THE SEA!
Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the THE SEA group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.
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.
$35 for the first 5 images, $5 for each additional image. Credit card or PayPal payments can be made using the PayPal link. Submissions are non-refundable. Applicants must be 18 or over. We accept international submissions.
Selected photographs will be posted on the website within one week after the deadline, along with instructions for submitting work for exhibition. An email will also be sent out when the collection is posted.
Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% of the sale price. There is a 9.25% California sales tax.
Photographs have the opportunity to be part of an online silent charity auction to benefit worthy causes. 1650 encourages all accepted artists to participate but it is not mandatory. We will provide additional info to accepted artists who fall into this category.
