NEXT New Photographic Visions

NEXT New Photographic Visions NEXT New Photographic Visions is the sixth annual juried exhibition for Castell Photography. This year’s competition will be juried by Elizabeth Avedon, independent curator and writer. Next is an open call for entries of contemporary photo based works. The curator is looking to see exceptional photography with a unique perspective and a cohesive look. Works submitted should be from a single, unified body of work. We encourage entrants to challenge themselves to excite our juror, who has her finger on the pulse of contemporary photography. Show her new photographic visions that she hasn’t seen before.

Castell Photography, established in the spring of 2009, is a fine art gallery which solely exhibits photo based works. As the only photography gallery in Asheville, and one of few in the region, Castell Photography is committed to bringing work which is representative of contemporary photography to Western North Carolina and beyond. The gallery is dedicated to educating our clientele on the value and importance of photography within the art world

Works shown are often times experimental, which is seen both in concept and in process. At the least they are playful, quite often they are narrative, frequently illustrating the idea of equivalents or metaphor. They create a mood, they are conceptually sound, and they are often perplexing. While works are often non traditional, they are always beautiful, whether in a conventional or atypical manner.

Gallery owner Brie Castell and Gallery Director Heidi Gruner are a passionate team who believe in the transcendence of the works which are exhibited as well as the artists who are represented. It is the gallery’s mission to exhibit artists who are worthy of appreciation, to show images which will inspire and excite, and to offer works which will enrich your collection.
