Every photograph tells a story. When part of a body of work, the photograph takes on new meaning, becoming part of a bigger and more complete narrative. A portfolio allows the photographer to explore the complexities of their subject, and provide context that gives it richness and meaning that is more than the sum of its parts. Panopticon Gallery is pleased to announce a call for art for “First Look 2023,” our annual juried portfolio showcase, where several portfolios will be selected for the exhibition on view from February through March 2023. Our annual First Look exhibitions allow us to connect with upcoming artists and share the work the we feel should be seen. We also use this as an opportunity to discover new work for future shows at the gallery and expand our network of artists.
