Ongoing opportunities for regional and international artists to share and sell their work:
All fine art photographers are invited to apply to bj spoke gallery’s photography competition and exhibit, Focus 2018. The definition of photography in this show is broad.

The photographers will be chosen by juror Kelly Sidley. Ms. Sidley is a Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Photography of the Museum of Modern Art, NY. She received her PhD in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, in 2006. She has taught in the undergraduate art history departments at New York University and Pace University, both in New York City. From 2007 to 2015 she presented lectures, led gallery talks, and taught courses for MoMA’s Education Department. She has assisted with numerous MoMA exhibitions, including Out of Time: Contemporary Art from the Collection (2006-2007); Comic Abstraction: Image-Breaking, Image-Making (2007); Aernout Mik (2009), and Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW (opening April 2017).

As part of a rotating exhibit, pieces will remain on display for 30-60 days. Geneva Arts Development reserves the right to collect a commission on pieces sold while in the Bank on Art program. If you are interested in having your works shown as part of Bank on Art, please email email@example.com. Please include .jpgs of the pieces you would like to submit.
