Candela Books + Gallery
Call for Submissions: UNBOUND8
Deadline: Friday, April 19, 2019

“This annual summer group exhibition is the only open call we hold each year and is dedicated to featuring a wide range of photographic artworks and fine art photography and artists’ books from 40-50 fine art photographers. UnBound! generates opportunities and exposure beyond the traditional group or juried show by providing a collection opportunity for artists. 

During the exhibition, an annual gala event is held to raise funds, which allows Candela to purchase select works from the exhibition. Works acquired by the event proceeds are then added to the gallery’s Candela Collection. The mission of the Candela Collection is to support photographers through the purchase of original photographic work and to actively pursue opportunities to donate said works to notable permanent collections. The Candela Collection currently includes 62 photographic artworks and 11 fine art photography books.

Our hope is that photographers will support our UnBound! exhibition with their active participation just as we hope to support their work and careers in return. All accepted artists will have their artwork featured at Candela Gallery, a gallery space in the downtown arts district of Richmond, Virginia.

THERE ARE NO FEES TO SUBMIT!!

Deadline for Submissions:  April 19th, 2019

October 18th, Richmond, VA: Candela Gallery “AN EVENING WITH DENISE BETHEL”

Candela Books + Gallery
An Evening with Denise Bethel
Thursday, October 18th, 5:30-7:30 PM, Talk at 6:00 PM

“RESURRECTING THE IMPORTANT | The Nineteenth Century and Contemporary Photography

Recent years have seen a number of contemporary photographers turn to 19th-century photographic processes, from the daguerreotype, ambrotype, and tintype to the wet plate and the camera obscura. What things do these anachronistic methods bring to the field of contemporary photography? Is it possible to re-direct a medium now accustomed to the speed and ease of a cell phone camera? This talk will explore what might be learned from the photographers of the 19th century and how these lessons are being used by some of the most adventurous artists of today.

Denise Bethel, formerly Chairman of the Photographs Department at Sotheby’s, Inc., spent over three decades in the photographs auction business in New York, where she set world records for artists ranging from Southworth & Hawes and Alfred Stieglitz to Edward Weston and Diane Arbus. A Richmond native, she holds a B. A. from Hollins College, Virginia, and an M. A. from London’s Courtauld Institute of Art, where her second year was funded by a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts graduate fellowship. She is now an independent advisor, writer, and lecturer based in New York City.”
