The 4th International SPE Combined Caucus Juried Exhibition will be presented at the Red Rock Resort's Cherry Nightclub for a one-night only slide show event in conjunction with the 2016 SPE National Conference, 'Constructed Realties.' A catalogue will accompany the exhibition, and be available for purchase online. Opening remarks from Aline Smithson will take place 8:15pm.
A second Combined Caucus Exhibition will be on view at Living Arts in Tulsa, OK from September 2-29, 2016.
Juror Aline Smithson is a photographic artist, educator, and the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Lenscratch. She has curated and juried exhibitions for a number of galleries, organizations, and on-line magazines. In addition, she is a reviewer and workshop instructor at many photo festivals across the United States. She has been an instructor at the Los Angeles Center of Photography since 2001. In 2014, Smithson received the Excellence in Teaching Award by CENTER and her work was selected for the Critical Mass Top 50 Portfolios, Review Santa Fe and the PDN Photo Annual. In 2012, she was recognized with the Rising Star Award through the Griffin Museum of Photography for her contributions to the photographic community.
Aline says that her approach was, "to find strong images and then create a new narrative in their connectedness. Single images became untethered from their original intention and ultimately were simply stand alone photographs."
