Congratulations, Oaxacan Photographer!

We are very excited to announce that you have been selected to submit up to five photographs for consideration for a special exhibition in OAXACAN GOLD at the Abilene Contemporary Arts Center in Abilene, Texas July 26th thru Sept 14th, 2024.  Images must be made in Oaxaca.

Greg Davis Photography has curated and produced a mixed media exhibition, including six different Master Folk Artists (Jacobo Angeles-Alebrijes, Carlomagno Pedro-Barro Negro, Magdalena Pedro Martinez-Barro Negro, Jose Garcia Antonio-Ceramics, Alejandro Vera Guzman-Devil Masks and the Mendoza Family-Textiles).  We are excited to announce that for the first time we are adding a Oaxacan Photographer (Oaxacan native or permanent resident) exhibit consisting of twelve selected single images from Oaxacan photographers.  These images will be printed at no cost to you and displayed for the length of the exhibit.  They will not be for sale at the exhibition.

The Oaxacan photographer’s works that are selected will have a complimentary 12″ x 18″, 12″x 16″ or 12″x12″ fine art museum rag print printed of the image. It will be curated with eleven other images and will be mounted in a special place in the exhibition.  Announced social media shoutouts to the photographers will be scheduled during the exhibition.    At the exhibit, each of the selected works will have the photographer’s name and social media link on the label.  The works will not be for sale, they will only be for exhibition.

If you are interested in participating, please click the Dropbox link below and submit up to five images for consideration.  The deadline is Midnight CST May 31st.  Please submit your images at 72dpi and 1200px on the short side.  If your image is chosen we will ask you for the 300dpi print ready file.

The closing event at the Center is on Sept 14th and will include a Oaxacan Guelaguezta style dance performance, mezcal tasting, a culinary taste of Oaxaca and an indigo dyeing workshop from the weaving family from Teotitilan del Valle.  We hope you will come celebrate, you are always welcome.
