“A former professor of photography at the University of Texas at Austin, native Australian Kate Breakey now lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. She first received international recognition for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs then adds layers of transparent oil paint and pencil.
Small Deaths, on view at the Michener Art Museum from March 14 – July 12, 2015 in the Fred Beans Gallery, features thirty extraordinary, hand-colored, oversized images of the birds, flowers, and insects that photographer Kate Breakey has memorialized through her work. The brilliance of her palette draws viewers to a close-up and unexpected confrontation with mortality. The images are life-size silver gelatin contact prints toned by hand with a golden wash. Breakey’s work has appeared in over 30 one-woman exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. She received the Photographer of the Year Award in 2004 from the Houston Center for Photography.

Deadline: Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 11:59 pm EDT
Fee for a series of 10 images: $40 + current PRC membership
“The PRC invites entries for EXPOSURE: The 19th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition and seeks a broad range work, including both traditional and non-traditional approaches to photography. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have shown in the PRC Juried Exhibitions—including an array of established photographers and those cited as “ones to watch.”Each year, a respected member of the photographic community—from curators to gallerists to photo editors—is asked to select 10 to 15 artists. The curator then selects between two and five pieces per person, thus offering artists the opportunity to showcase a series at a deeper level and making for an enriching experience for audiences as well.
Juror: Kristen Gresh, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Assistant Curator of Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
EXPOSURE is a great opportunity to view a slice of the best and brightest as selected by a nationally-renowned juror. In celebration of the PRC’s 30th anniversary in the 2006/2007 academic year and to reflect more accurately the mission and function of our annual photography competition, we changed the name of the PRC Members’ Exhibition to EXPOSURE: The Annual PRC Juried Exhibition. Past exhibiting photographers have included Claire Beckett, Victoria Crayhon, Eliot Dudik, Dave Jordano, Benjamin Lowy, Neeta Madahar, Rania Matar, Irina Rozovsky, Tara Sellios, Steve Smith, Martin Stupich, among many others.For details and images from previous Exposure exhibitions visit: www.bu.edu/prc/exposure/juriedexhibition.htm.
