Deadline: 23 May
"The Tower Gallery, College at Brockport, NY is issuing a call for submissions for an upcoming exhibition Fall 2012 entitled "LOW FIDELITY". Each new day seemingly brings new advances in creative resources, leaving a wasteland of outdated and obsolete equipment and antiquated technologies, such as flip cameras, slide projectors, old sound equipment, etc. The Tower Gallery is seeking artists that purposefully employ older and outdated equipment and technologies in their work. Works can also address conceptual ideas related to "Low Fidelity", be it through cultural or socio-political statements.
Please submit a cd that must include Resume/Bio, 5 - 10 Digital Images of work, and Artist statement relevant to the theme in either pdf or jpeg files. Video and sound files will be accepted. Deadline for submissions: May 23, 2012. Send to: Tower Gallery, College at Brockport, 350 New Campus Drive, Brockport, NY 14420"

Two new exhibitions open at the Vine Arts Center in South Minneapolis February 18th. John Johnston and Tom Wik present Longfellow, Mpls.: A Song of Hiawatha, a collaborative, photographic survey of the greater Longfellow neighborhood, and Colleen Mullins presents cultivar, a photographic archaeology of the photographer's past, inspired by the bread crumb trail left by the generation before. All three artists are or have been longtime Longfellow neighborhood residents, which has brought them together in this venue.
