JUROR – Nancy Kaye

Nancy Kaye is a photographer and educator in L.A., previously based in NYC & London, shooting for The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Associated Press.  Her photos have been widely exhibited in juried shows and included in numerous books and documentaries. Her portrait of author Ralph Ellison is in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. In 1988 Nancy photographed a group of young girls in a rough Brooklyn neighborhood for The NY Times; a generation later she collaborated on a project, “Jump Rope Girls,” documenting the girls’ lives as adults with children of their own, and presented it at Duke University’s Documentary Study Center.  She teaches in continuing ed programs at LA Valley College & American Jewish University’s Whizin Center, and leads independent street photo workshops, guiding photographers in defining their personal projects. In recent years, she has served as a photo judge and curator. She is on the board of ASMP-LA.

All photographers must sit at least one 3-hour shift at the Center during the exhibit. Each of the open days has 2 shifts each (11:00 am - 2:00 pm and 2:00 - 5:00 pm).  Signups for sitting will take place at take-in.  Bring your calendar to verify dates you will be available.

PHOTO FORMAT, PRESENTATION & SIZE REQUIREMENTS

Maximum height or width of any photo must not exceed 96" including the frame. Photos must fit through a 6'6" high x 36” wide door. There is a premium wall which is 17’ long for large size works. Work delivered must be installation-ready. Non-traditional photographic works in two-dimensional form and photographic wall sculptures must be wired or cleated for hanging. We use a cable hanging system (nails and screws are not drilled into the walls) on the perimeter walls of the gallery.  Because the cable hooks must not show, the top of the hanging wire should be at least 3" below the top of the frame.  Cleated work will generally not be suitable for cable hanging and will be placed on the T-Walls or other non-cabled wall.  All photos must be mounted, framed, or otherwise suitably prepared for hanging.  Frames must be in good condition and properly equipped with wire for hanging. The wire and eye screws must not show when the artwork is hung.  Maximum weight for any artwork is 10 Ibs. per linear foot of width. Minimal assistance available moving large or heavy pieces.  Damaged photos, mats, frames, glass and Plexiglas will not be accepted.  No sawtooth hangers.  The SFVACC has the right to reject any photo not suitable for hanging.
