“Alejandra Regalado‘s project, In Reference To is a photographic project about Mexican female immigrants across the U.S. In Reference To explores issues of cultural identity, femininity and the relationship between these themes and personal objects. When completed in 2014, In Reference To will be a five-part series: New York, Idaho & Oregon, Texas, Illinois and California. Each will feature 100 Mexican women who immigrated to the United States at different points in their lives, alongside the 100 personal objects each woman chose to represent their most personal connection to Mexico and the lives they left behind when they immigrated to the U.S.” To learn more about this project read The Blue Review’s article.
The exhibition will be on view October 27, 2013 – February 7, 2014.

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.”

The Fixed Shadow: A Juried Photography Exhibition of Camera-less Images
Opening Reception & Gallery Talk with Carol Panaro-Smith & James Hajicek
Sunday, October 27, 2013, 3:00-5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.
“From October 27 – December 8, 2013 the Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries will present selected works by artists from across the United States. The works use camera-less photographic processes. Among the processes used are photograms, scanograms, lumen prints, chemigrams, and photogenic drawings: all of which describe methods where light is used to capture an image directly onto a surface.
Exhibition jurors and featured artists Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek have been working with camera-less photographic processes throughout their careers. Their collaborative photogenic drawings of organic materials beautifully engage themes of serendipity and impermanence.
On Sunday October 27, 2013 jurors Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek will be presenting a gallery talk from 3:00-4:00 in the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries. An opening reception will follow from 4:00 P.M. until 5:30 P.M.”

October 18th, Daytona Beach: Artist Talk, Book Signing & Reception for Rebecca Norris Webb “My Dakota”
“In 2005, I set out to photograph my home state of South Dakota, a sparsely populated frontier state on the Great Plains with more buffalo, pronghorn, coyotes, mule deer, ring-necked pheasants, and prairie dogs than people. It’s a landscape dominated by space and silence and solitude, by brutal wind and extreme weather. I was trying to capture a more intimate and personal view of the West. I was trying to capture what all that space feels like to someone who grew up there. A year into the project, however, everything changed. One of my brothers died unexpectedly. For months, one of the few things that eased my unsettled heart was the landscape of South Dakota. It seemed all I could do was drive through the badlands and prairies and photograph. I began to wonder: Does loss have its own geography?” – Rebecca Norris Webb
Registration is limited and open until October 10th or until filled. Cost: $100.

Panel moderators include Kristen Lubben, Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, New York; Anne Wilkes Tucker, Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; David Little, Curator of Photography and New Media at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; Stuart Alexander, Independent Curator and International Specialist, Photographs, Christie’s, New York; and Jessica S. McDonald, Nancy Inman and Marlene Nathan Meyerson Curator of Photography at the Ransom Center.

Deadline October 7th: Humble Arts Foundation Call for Entries: “Tough Turf: New Directions in Street Photography”
“For the past 8 years, Humble Arts Foundation has been championing what’s “new” in Art Photography. At times rivaling commercial aspirations, we’re interested in work that makes us twitch and keeps us excited about the future of Photography.
For the launch of our new site and group show 39, we’re producing an online exhibition of street photography made since 2000 that encourages us to rethink the genre entirely. How have today’s photographers brought the traditions of Cartier Bresson, Diane Arbus, Helen Levitt and countless others into the 21st Century? Have smart-phones, instagram and digital technology changed the nature of the “Decisive Moment?”
