Call for Work – Emerge 2018, Student Photography Exhibition
Emerge showcases the breadth of talent exhibited by Arizona’s student photographers from high school freshmen to senior citizens. We welcome photographers enrolled in an Arizona high school (including home school students), community college, art school, or university to submit their work for consideration. This year’s submissions to Emerge will be juried by Ashley Czajkowski.
As part of our mission to support emerging artists, we offer student artists an opportunity to show their work in the North and South Galleries at Art Intersection. Art Intersection staff will also select recipients for Best of High School, Best of Post-High School, and Best of Show.
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.
Czajkowski achieved her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2009 from Emporia State University in Kansas, and in 2015 she earned her Master of Fine Arts in photography from Arizona State University. Czajkowski’s work has been exhibited across the United States and internationally. Most recently, her work was shown at the Soho Photo Gallery in New York, The Millepiani Art Space in Rome and the CICA Museum in South Korea. She currently resides in Tempe, Arizona and in 2017 received the inaugural TAFF Award from Phoenix Artlink. Czajkowski teaches photography courses, works as the sound technician and story editor for the Creative Push Project, and is a member and former President of Eye Lounge Gallery, an artist collective in downtown Phoenix.
