KNOXVILLE – The Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville is accepting photographic works entries for its third annual Knoxville Photo 2015. Approximately 40-50 photographic works from both emerging and established artists will comprise the exhibition in the main gallery of the beautifully-restored Emporium Center at 100 S. Gay Street, Knoxville’s downtown arts anchor location, from June 5-17, 2015. This juried exhibition was developed to provide a forum for artists to compete on a national scale and display their work.

The deadline for entries to be received is Sunday, April 26, 2015.

The call for entries is open to all artists. Entries must be original works completed within the last two years in the following categories: The Human Experience, Our Earth, Travel, and Digital Imagination. The nonrefundable entry fee is $30 for up to three images ($20 for Arts & Culture Alliance members and students). Up to seven additional images may be submitted for $5/each ($4 for members/students). Apply online and/or download an application at, or send an SASE to Suzanne Cada, Arts & Culture Alliance, PO Box 2506, Knoxville, TN 37901. Prizes include at least $1,000 in cash awards.

The juror for the exhibition will be David J. Simchock. Simchock is a native of New Jersey and has lived and traveled overseas for many years. Since returning to the States in 2002, he quickly established himself as a reputable freelance photographer and artist. His images have been published in major publications around the world, and he has exhibited his work in numerous galleries and venues from New York City to Asheville and beyond. Simchock’s creative efforts have been awarded many prestigious accolades, while his life story and career have been covered in several publications and TV features. Simchock is also an educator, speaker and writer (and aspiring rock star). He enjoys being a stranger in a strange land and taking on new artistic challenges, whether abroad or nearer to his own back yard. He strives to bring a fresh approach to his craft, successfully capturing the mood of the moment, as well as, perhaps, an entire journey. He resides in Western North Carolina.
