Little by Little

Little by Little, a juried exhibition of small artworks, presents a wide variety of art expressed in a size no more than twelve-inches in any dimension. Amazing, beautiful, and impactful small works of art presented in a dedicated exhibition from a more intimate viewpoint that begs for a closer look!

These incredible artworks make wonderful gifts for family, friends, or for you too. If you purchase a piece, we will take it off the wall to take it home with you that day.

Light Sensitive

To celebrate the art of handcrafted prints, Art Intersection presents Light Sensitive, our eleventh-annual, international juried exhibition of images created using traditional darkroom, historical, and alternative photographic processes and methods.

In the current takeover of imagery presented on computer screens and the overwhelming volume of digitally printed pictures, the purpose of our Light Sensitive exhibition is to celebrate, promote, and reaffirm the art of handcrafted prints that uniquely belong to the tradition of light sensitive creative processes. Each year we search for work representing creativity, passion, and display of the beauty these light sensitive processes bring.

About the Juror

Buzzy Sullivan, a photographer currently based out of Phoenix, Arizona, has exhibited his work throughout the US and internationally. Sullivan grew up in Montana, often known as “The Last Best Place”, and also home to the largest Superfund site in the United States. Montana’s duality of pristine wilderness and toxic remains formed his interest in the human/nature interface.

Sullivan currently works at the Residential Photography Faculty at Chandler-Gilbert Community College. He received his Master of Fine Art at Arizona State University in 2017 and a BFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft in 2013.

Juror Statement

Though I have found myself with a master’s degree and a career teaching photography I must admit – I failed my only high school photography course. It’s not that I wasn’t interested in the medium as a high school student, it was instead I found myself under the guidance of a wildly unimaginative teacher who wouldn’t allow 15 year-olds the latitude to explore their abilities of visual communication. Not to sound too harsh, but my high school teacher presented photography in a way that removed the student’s experience and voice from the making of a picture. She wanted us to photograph various school events, and I wanted to photograph my friends’ skateboarding. I got an F in high school photography, but the lesson that students, no matter their age, have voices has stuck with me. The job of an educator is to pull those voices out and allow latitude for experimentation. 
 
An education in photography isn’t intended to be centered solely on student’s mastery of cameras and printing techniques. Teaching is a subversive activity. We are teaching critical thinking wrapped up in visual communication. To effectively get students to think critically, educators have to bake a bit of experimentation into their curriculum.

This statement brings me to work included in the 2019 Emerge Exhibition. When jurying the work for this show, I aimed to include work that spoke to the strengths of the students reacting to the world around them and to their teachers behind the scenes who are allowing their students to experiment. As every previous year, 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 their perspectives. The future is in good hands. Thank you Art Intersection for all you do to further access to art in Arizona.
