Call for Proposals for the Main and Step-Up Gallery, Solo & Group Exhibitions in 2018

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is now accepting proposals for solo and group exhibitions for January through December, 2018. Exhibits in the Main Gallery will generally run for a four-week period, but may be longer. Each exhibit in the Step Up Gallery, which is reserved for members of Viewpoint only (you must be a current member to submit a proposal), will also run for approximately four weeks. Exhibits run concurrently in both galleries, with new exhibits opening during the second week of each month.


All proposals must be made using EntryThingy online submissions. CLICK HERE to go to EntryThingy.

Submissions must be in digital format. The Curatorial Committee will not accept slides, prints, or other formats during its initial review, but may request samples of such work during the selection process.

Submission must include a representative selection of 15 – 25 images from a finished, cohesive body of work, as well as a short bio and resume (which can be uploaded to EntryThingy). Images must be sized to EntryThingy specifications and should not exceed 2 MB. For instance, an image sized 1200 pixels by 1600 pixels saved as a medium quality jpeg.

If selected for an exhibit, exhibitors must be prepared to show a minimum of 20 or more images from their submitted body of work. The final number will be determined by the Viewpoint Curatorial Committee based on images sizes and available wall space.

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center will accept no more than two exhibit proposals by any one artist. Please differentiate proposals by exhibit title.

Proposals for solo or group exhibits must be submitted online by midnight on Saturday, August 19, 2017. Late submissions will not be considered.

We look forward to seeing your submissions!


2017 Members' Exhibit


Each year Viewpoint Photographic Art Center celebrates the outstanding artistic talents and creativity of its members by hosting an annual member’s exhibit.  All current Viewpoint members are invited to submit one of their photographs for display.  New work that has not been displayed previously at Viewpoint or other galleries is preferred.  Submissions are not limited to a particular theme or form of photography. The exhibit will showcase the members’ wide variety of photographic interests.

Submission is limited to one entry per member. Exhibition display space in the Step Up and Main Galleries is limited. Therefore, only the first 100 entries will be accepted.  Please prepare your work early and submit your photograph during the submission period. A member may be placed on a waiting list for entries submitted after the maximum number of photographs and entry forms have been accepted.

Picturing the Parkway (Call for Entries)

Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs

Considered the blueprint for urban parks across the U.S., the 4,900-acre American River Parkway extends along the Lower American River for 23 miles, from Folsom Dam to Discovery Park at the confluence with the Sacramento River. Combining conservation with scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, and a wide range of recreational opportunities, the Parkway hosts more than five million visitors annually. The Parkway also provides a wealth of photographic opportunities in all seasons of the year.

To celebrate this "jewel of the Sacramento region", Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is planning a major photographic exhibit in the autumn of 2017. Entitled Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs, the exhibit will feature a juried selection of photographs made within the American River Parkway. The exhibit is open to all photographers and all photographic techniques.

Viewpoint is announcing this open exhibition more than a year in advance to encourage all interested photographers to explore the richness of the American River Parkway in all seasons and weathers. So get out there and start making pictures!
