About the Juror
Kenda North, Professor of Photography at University of Texas, Arlington

Kenda North resides in Dallas, Texas, and is professor of photography at UT Arlington. She received her MFA from the Visual Studies Workshop (University of Buffalo) in 1976. She taught at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and the University of California at Riverside before accepting a position at UTA in 1989. She received the Honored Educator Award from the SPE South Central Region in 2009.

Her work is represented by Craighead Green Gallery in Dallas, Texas. She has had over 50 one-person exhibitions (national and international) and participated in hundreds of juried group exhibitions since 1977. Her work is in the public collections of over 50 museum and gallery collections including the Smithsonian, the Federal Reserve, LA County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. A monograph of her work was published by Gallery Min in 1988, and her work has been reproduced in a range of photographic anthologies and exhibition catalogs.

Juror’s Statement
I am excited to serve as a juror for the TPS’ New Visions exhibition. I have been an educator and artist in photography for almost 40 years. Nonetheless, everyone who enters this exhibition will be bringing me something new to reflect on.

The things that I will look for in choosing work for the show would be:

Images that are fresh, original and reflect a personal vision

Images that are intended to be understood as art

Images that use photography to visualize concepts or ideas

Images that use processes to successfully bring forward ideas

Images that show mastery of technique; imperfections can be useful if they are deliberate

Prepare Your Files
1. Files should be 1200 pixels in the longest dimension and saved in JPEG format on the highest quality setting. Images should also be saved in RGB color space.

2. Label each file as FirstName_Lastname_ followed by consecutive numbers. For example: Sam_Jones_1.jpg, Sam_Jones_2.jpg, etc. Please don't forget to include the "jpg" extension.

3. Do NOT use spaces in the file name, and do NOT use special characters such as :;’”/?}{()[ ]+=*&^%$#@! (use only alpha-numeric characters).

4. Please prepare the following information for each image: (1) print title; (2) process [Archival Digital Print, Gelatin Silver Print, Platinum/Palladium Print, etc.]; and (3) price or NFS.
