Emerge – Student Photography Exhibition

For the eighth exciting year we are proud to present Emerge, our annual exhibition featuring works from student photographers enrolled in Arizona high schools, community colleges, art schools, and universities across the state. Ashley Czajkowski, a local photography-based artist and educator, juried this year’s show.

In this exhibition we offer student photographers an opportunity to show their work in a professional gallery, fulfilling our mission to support early-career photographers. In addition to the exhibition, prizes will be awarded for Best in Show, sponsored by Through Each Other’s Eyes; Best of Post-High School, sponsored by Charlene Stant Engel; and Best of High School, sponsored by Kelly and Dennis Collins. 

About the Juror

Ashley Czajkowski, a photography-based artist, works in a number of interdisciplinary methods. Driven by personal experience, her research explores social constructions related to femininity, mortality and the psychological manifestation of the human-animal.  Though she considers herself a photographer, Czajkowski also works in video, installation, and alternative print processes, pushing the expected boundaries of the photographic art medium.


Juror’s Statement

One of the most valuable rewards of studying photography is that it enables us to literally, and metaphorically, see the world around us in entirely new ways. In jurying this show, I was struck by the unique visions of these young photographers and artists. Whether this way of seeing revealed quiet moments of light and shadow or elaborately constructed scenes for the camera, the ability to use photography as a tool for exploration and creative expression was continuous throughout.

Though I did not set out to curate a show with a particular theme, a common thread began to reveal itself. Of the photographs I selected, there are many images of humans, of nature, and most curiously, of the boundaries where these two entities meet, overlap and coexist. I found myself responding to images that in some way question our current conditions of being: questions of human nature, our impact on our surroundings, our interactions with each other, and our understanding of ourselves. Almost like archaeologists of our own time, for me these photographs collectively evoke ideas related to the fragility of existence and a sense of wonder in the everyday.

– Ashley Czajkowski

Little by Little

Art Intersection presents Little by Little, our first ever exhibition of small artwork. We are excited to feature pieces, all ten inches or smaller in every direction, from over sixty artists nationally!

Juror, Dr. Julie Sasse, Chief Curator at the Tucson Museum of Art selected a diverse range of processes and presentations, highlighting the unique experience of viewing art on a small scale. Take a closer look at this work in the North Gallery. 

Juror’s Statement

It has been a great pleasure to serve as the guest juror for Art Intersection’s Little by Little. I am honored to be selected for this opportunity because it gives me a chance to learn more about new art being exhibited in the Southwest and to become better acquainted with Art Intersection’s supportive environment for the arts. My thanks go to the many artists who submitted works for this exhibition and to the Art Intersection team who organized this project.

This exhibition gives the viewer a snapshot of the creative ideas and originality and artists’ heartfelt connections to their mediums and concepts. Arizona has limited venues for emerging and mid-career artists to exhibit their work compared to more densely populated states, so this exhibition offers a link between the creative product and those who derive pleasure and insight from viewing it. 

This is a small works exhibition, but that does not mean the works are less in content or aesthetic and conceptual value. I believe artists should make art in the scale that best serves their ideas, and if the works are small, they are still important if created with sincerity. Some of the most poignant works I have seen over the years are not the most grand in scale, but suitable for the message intended. If anything, small works allow us to concentrate on an idea and an image because of the intimacy provided by the unassuming, though purposeful size. They encourage us to block out the noise of the gigantic in favor of contemplative statements. I hope you will enjoy Little by Little and let yourself connect to the works in a personal relationship. 

– Dr. Julie Sasse, guest juror

Emerge 2017 – Student Photography Exhibition

Art Intersection presents the seventh annual Emerge exhibition with works from student photographers enrolled in Arizona high schools, community colleges, art schools, and universities across the state. Clare Benson, a local photographer, interdisciplinary artist and educator, juried this year’s show.

As part of our mission to support emerging artists, we offer student photographers an opportunity to show their work in the North and South Galleries at Art Intersection. In addition to the exhibition, prizes will be awarded for Best in Show, sponsored by Through Each Others Eyes, Best of Post-High School, sponsored by Tempe Camera and Best of High School, sponsored by local patrons Kelly and Dennis Collins. INFOCUS, the Photography Support Group of the Phoenix Art Museum, will award a Student Membership to each of the three winners.

About the Juror

Clare Benson is a photographer and interdisciplinary artist from the United States. Her work has been exhibited and screened throughout the US and internationally. In 2014/2015, she received a Fulbright Fellowship to conduct research in northern Sweden at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics. Other recent awards include the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward, PDN Emerging Photographer, and the Joyce Elaine Grant Solo Show Award.

Benson earned her MFA at University of Arizona in Tucson, and her BFA at Central Michigan University.

Juror’s Statement

I can vividly remember the first photograph I made as a student. Armed with a pinhole camera that I had painted and taped and pin-pricked, I went outside, behind the art building, where sculpture students had their foundry and kilns and scrap materials. There was a plain wooden classroom chair, weathered from rain and sun, that I dragged to the center of the asphalt floor, imagining that it might speak as a symbol of absence and isolation, in the midst of this surreal industrial-looking space. I kneeled to the ground, pulling the piece of electrical tape that covered the aperture of my shoe box camera. I stared into this seemingly simple scene, hoping to absorb the moment in the same way that I understood the camera might. Light and darkness danced through a tiny window and onto the back wall of that miniature room. In the developing tray, I watched an image slowly appear, like a backward-fading memory, or something from a dream. The midday sky was black as night. The shadow of the chair glowed like the sun through thin overcast clouds. The entire space stretched out its long arms, pulling toward the sides of the page, blurring at the very ends, from the frayed edges of aluminum foil. Even when converted to a positive image, the world in this photograph looked nothing like the world that I had seen, but everything like the one that I had felt.

As photographers, and especially as photography students, we are constantly learning to re-see the world, using different techniques, processes, perspectives, and formats. In jurying this exhibition, I searched for moments of surprise and newness, which I remember so well from my years of studying photography. I looked at these images as stripped down fragments—concept, craft, and exploration—all existing on separate planes. Each is developed through learning and practice; sometimes all together, and sometimes in different stages. Some works display elements of all three, while some push farther into one than another, but all of them speak to processes of discovery, and the development of one’s voice as an image-maker.

I am impressed with the caliber and boldness of work by all of the Arizona students who submitted images for this exhibition, and I am grateful for the opportunity to see the world through so many different lenses; grateful to be reminded of the time, long ago, that my own world became animated with new life inside a light-tight shoe box.

Clare Benson

Independent Presence Exhibition

Exhibition

Independent Presence, an exhibition bringing the mystery, nature and narrative themes of six independent artists, delivers the power of presence through work ranging from pinhole cameras and darkroom alchemy to digital capture. Each artist, with her own style and vision, shares a connection, linked together through Salon Jane.

These innovative artists escape the deep-rooted West Coast tradition of straight photography to transcend the ordinary by creating work that captures their essence. Through their relationship in the safe and supportive environment of Salon Jane, each artist seeks to expand her creativity, experiment with artistic ideas, and receive honest feedback to push the boundaries of their craft so they can continue to innovate in an already over-saturated discipline.


Artist Talk in the Gallery

An Artist Talk  precedes the opening reception giving us the opportunity to hear from these accomplished artists as they discuss their work and background, creative processes, and the connection that brings them together through Salon Jane. You can expect an engaging discussion offering insights to their individual work and the synergy generated through their commitment to supporting each other’s creative growth.

Sui Generis

The avant-garde rock ‘n roll diva, Nina Hagen, said it most clearly: “I know who I am and I am willing to declare myself.” To declare yourself you must first find your place in the world – a physical place, a technical place, a psychological spiritual emotional place – a place from which you can do the work you are meant to do.  Without such a place it is difficult to speak authentically on the issues you mean to address. 

The artists in this exhibition have found their place by the whole variety of means that artists use to decide who they are, but particularly by extracting themselves from the embrace of two photographic traditions that have become oppressive (West Coast landscape photography and conceptual photography) thereby freeing their intuitions to guide them towards the work they truly need to do.  The resulting work belongs to no school of photography but is rather more sui generis – it generates itself out of intuition, out of perception, out of spiritual emotional and psychological relationships with the subject matter, and out of an intimate but lighthearted relationship with photography’s notorious technical side, all to the effect that these artists know who they are and are willing to declare themselves.

– David Bayles
