Blue Sky Gallery 
Talk by Shelley Socolofsky: Artist Reproductions: Textiles and the Analogue to Digital
Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

“In this lecture, Shelley Socolofsky will talk about the long history of translating artist’s work into textiles, including the origin of the innovative Jacquard loom used to create Chuck Close’s remarkable Tapestries on display at Blue Sky this month.

Shelley Socolofsky is an artist and educator living and working in Portland. Informed by long histories of textile production with its orientations to pattern, decoration, and association with ‘low arts,’ her work explores the material, conceptual, and poetic nuances of craft through a hybrid practice incorporating both digital technology and analogue hand processes.”

Houston Center for Photography
2012 Fellowships
Deadline: Friday, November 4, 2011
Entry fee: $35 for 10 images | open to all

“Two fellowship recipients will be awarded $2,500 each and a solo exhibition at HCP in the summer of 2012. One Houston-based artist (residing within a 100 mile radius of Houston including the Beaumont, Galveston, and College Station areas) will receive the Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship and another artist from anywhere in the world, outside the Houston area, will receive the HCP Fellowship. Christopher Rauchenberg of Blue Sky Gallery (Portland, OR) will jury the fellowship selection.

Eligibility
HCP Fellowships are geared towards the completion and presentation of new work; submissions of work in progress are acceptable. The competition is open to all
photographic, film/video, and lens-based installation work. One fellowship will be awarded to an artist residing within a 100- mile radius of Houston (including the  Beaumont, Galveston, and College Station areas). A second fellowship will be awarded to an artist living anywhere in the U.S or abroad. The entry fee is $35 for up to 10 images. Past recipients, HCP staff, Board, Advisory Council, Committee members and their significant others are not eligible.

Rules for Entry
Participants must be, or become, HCP members at the time of submission. Everyone must create a new account with Smarter Entry. Artists must submit a proposal for the Fellowship project, outlining its conceptual objective(s) and intended outcome(s). The proposal must not exceed 800 words in length and must be pasted into the notes section of the uploading process. Acceptance will be based on the unified body of work by each artist rather than on individual images. Preference will be given to new work or work created within the last two (2) years that has not been widely exhibited in the Houston area. A maximum of 10 digital image files (jpg, compression at 7 (medium), sRGB or RGB, 72ppi, no larger than 1280 pixels on the longest side, layers flattened, 8 bit mode, with file names not including characters other than a period) are acceptable.
