Foiled By Inane Qualifications

I do not concern myself with art world controversies which swirl about the domain of digital art and digital media. My art is created from photographs and from using computer programs. All of it is 100% in the digital domain until it is rendered as an analog product, although these artistic renderings are in the format of the square pixel.

I had hoped to enter the above photograph, of which I have a beautifully rendered-to-canvas proof to contribute, into a juried show at The Jewish Community Center.

But, wait, the artist reads the so-called physical/format qualifications:

JCCART

I call the nice lady to find out if the NO GICLEES rule means that a photograph printed to canvas by Stan, my ink jet art printer in Ithaca, rules out my photograph.

Yes!

So, only process printed photographs may be entered?

Yup!

I thanked her and hung up. I have no idea what artists working in digital media provide as acceptable pieces if ink jet prints are not allowed.

Now, I will go find out.
