Call for Submissions: Photography in Black and White
In November, the Majestic Theatre welcomes artists and art lovers to rediscover the beauty of mono images in our second community art show of the season. Black and White remains a cherished medium for how it’s subtlety of tones can strip down an image to its raw composition in a society of modern technology that flashes a million colors a minute. Monochrome images sound simplistic, and yet they are anything but dull. It becomes a challenge to the photographer to consider not only black and white, but all the shades in between. The format compliments all types of photography and light, from movement to landscapes, urban landscapes, portrait, architecture, or macro snapshots and creates images bold and powerful or soft and hazy.
We accept all interpretations, capture types and processes within the parameters of the theme.
Theme: Black and White Photography

Pitch & Stark Submission Requirements
The Majestic Theatre is holding a series of community art shows centered on various themes throughout the year. We invite local artists and members of the community to drop off one work of art to be hung in our South Lobby Gallery as part of our shows. There is no entry fee or jury process. Simply bring an original work that meets the requirements below and we will hang your piece.
Artwork must be 100% ready to hang or display with appropriate hanging mechanism. We do not frame artwork.
Artwork must not exceed 24 inches in any direction or 15 pounds.
Artwork must be dropped off and picked up during the designated times. We do not store artwork.
Artwork must be accompanied by a completed submission form.
Artwork must be relevant to the theme. For Pitch & Stark, we ask that all works fit within the category of black and white photographic medium.
Due to our limited gallery space, we will only be able to accommodate between 15-20 pieces per show, so space in the show will be based on a first come basis. Please contact Gabriela Oh if you have any questions about the requirements.
