“Rayko Photo Center’s Artist-in-Residence Program was developed to continue our support and education of fine art photographers. Through the program, artists receive unlimited access to RayKo’s facilities. Artists-in-residence will receive significant discounts on other services and workshops at RayKo. There is a five month time frame to shoot, print, and complete the body of work, and one month to prepare work for the exhibition. Artists gain hands on experience in the entire process of creating work, from conceptualizing, printing, framing, and hanging. Work produced in the program will culminate in a show in our side gallery. Up to three final prints of the gallery director’s choice will be donated to RayKo’s print collection. Artists will have regular review sessions with the gallery director as the project progresses. Mentoring is available to assist in the artistic development of residents and cultivate a more polished body of work.

“The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition. When choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, Aperture’s editorial and curatorial staff look for innovative bodies of work that haven’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues. Previous winners and runners-up include Michal Chelbin, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Alexander Gronsky, Sarah Palmer, Bryan Schutmaat, and Jordan Tate, among others.
First prize is $3,000 and an exhibition at Aperture Gallery. The first-prize winner and up to five runners-up will be featured on Aperture’s website, where their images will be accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture staff. All winners are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches forty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. Winners will also have the opportunity to offer their prints via the Aperture Foundation limited-edition print program.”

“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.

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.”

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.”
