2016 National Juried Photo Encaustic
Sage Gallery in Portland, OR and PhotoEncaustic.com are now calling on photographers to submit images for consideration to the 2016 National Juried Photo Encaustic Exhibition.
Photo Encaustic images can be defined as “where photographs meet hot beeswax, pigments, texture, and experimentation”. The image can be the entire piece or partially incorporated, but all work must include a photograph either adhered to the substrate, printed on a non-traditional paper and embedded, or a photo transfer.
Portraits, fashion, editorial, landscape, documentary, conceptual, or any other genre is open for consideration. All artwork that incorporates photography and encaustic medium will be considered. Either color or monotone is acceptable. 3D pieces are acceptable as long as it incorporates an image and encaustic medium.
Judge: Clare O’Neill, Photographer and Teacher
Submission Fee: $30 for 5 images, $10 each additional
Deadline for Submission: April 26, 2016
First Place: $300
Second Place: $100
As part of her career as a tour operator specializing in custom designed trips to Ireland, Clare O’Neill discovered the photography. Clare’s photography as evolved over time. She began as a traditional black & white film photographer, yet her desire to bring depth and texture to her images currently guides her work. Inspired by traditional oil painters, she uses her images as a starting point to manipulate and create works with a three-dimensional quality.
Clare teaches photo encaustic workshops throughout the United States as well as teaching the process online to a world-wide audience. This summer she is offering the first of its kind–a photo encaustic equine workshop where students will have the opportunity to spend time capturing images and then transforming their photographs with pigment and wax (all while taking in the magnificent experience of a western dude ranch).
As publisher of the acclaimed book series, Open to Interpretation, she is dedicated to providing a place for artists to gain recognition and exposure for their work.
