JUROR – Lesley Krane
Lesley Krane grew up in Los Angeles, earned an A.A. degree at Santa Monica College (1987), got a B.A. in Art at UCLA (1991), then earned an M.F.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Photography History at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque in 1995.  She began teaching in the Art Department at California State University Northridge in 1999.  Committed to the practice of “slow photography” and the advantages of waiting, Lesley teaches her students to have a reverence and sensitivity for the medium.  A member of the Freestyle Advisory Board of Photographic Professionals, she has exhibited and presented her work at local, national, and international venues.

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.
