Juried by Marina Chao, Curator of The Center for Photography at Woodstock

The Center for Photography at Woodstock located in Kingston, NY was founded in 1977 by photographers Howard Greenberg and Michael Feinberg.  Today CPW is a hub for dialogue and discovery in photography and related media and through its programs fosters opportunities to create and explore photography, and celebrate its role in contemporary culture.

PREPARE IMAGES TO ENTER ONLINE: Resize your images to 72 dpi sized no smaller than 1000 pixels in any direction (about 13”). This should result in most image files ranging from 700kb to 2mb in file size. Files bigger than 3mb will not be accepted. For non-visual art submissions including audio, video, or writing, submit the appropriate files (.mov for video, .avi for sound, and .doc/.docx/.pdf for writing and other proposals) in place of images.

IMPORTANT!  Save images as a .jpg file and label each image as “lastname_firstname_01title” (example: Smith_Mary_01untitled.jpg)


– Work previously exhibited at the Carriage Barn will not be accepted for the show.

– Photographs must be presented in a manner compatible with a gallery hanging system using secure wire or D-ring securely attached to the back of the photograph. Wire should be mounted no more than 1/4 of the way down from the top edge of the photograph/frame and be taut from side to side so as not to swing away from the top when hung.

– Work delivered to the gallery must be installation-ready. Non-traditional photographic works and two-dimensional form and photographic wall sculptures must be wired or cleated for hanging.

– Work must remain on exhibit for the entire show. Following the pickup dates after the close of the show, there will be storage charge of $10/day for any work left at the gallery.

Note: Photographs may be mounted on a panel (wood, plexi or metal), gallery-wrapped canvas, or framed (neutral frames/mattes preferred). Saw tooth hangers and small wire loops on the back of inexpensive frames are not acceptable along with scratched glass or plexi-glass, poorly constructed frames and poorly cut mats. We reserve the right to reject any work whose presentation is sub-standard.

For any works sold, artists receive 65% of the sale price before tax. The Carriage Barn Arts Center and New Canaan Society for the Arts retains the remaining 35% as a transaction fee.
