The Portrait ends 1 October 2023

Deadline: 1 October 2023. We use portraits as objects of remembrance and reverence, of seduction and glorification. They can stir, and confront, and drive us to action just as they can lull us in longing for a time since passed. Black-and-white and color, analog, digital and especially antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for The Portrait is Brian Clamp. Brian Paul Clamp, has over thirty years of experience in the field. He holds a Master of Arts degree in Critical Studies in Modern Art from Columbia University, and is the author of over forty articles and publications on American art to date.


35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville’s, First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.
