Call for Participation in a Juried Exhibition
Photography as Witness: Power and Politics, the charged landscape of the 21st century
Exhibition: January 25 through March 9, 2013
This exhibition seeks artists whose photographic practice interrogates contemporary issues, and documents our global conditions and challenges. Technology has extended our awareness of events taking place around the world from the Arab Spring, the Occupy Movement to the ongoing poverty caused by corporate greed, corrupt governments, criminal organizations, and religious and tribal violence. These challenges affect the two-third of the world, emergent nations and under-reported regions of the West. It is the witnessing of the devastation of humanity and the environment that moves us to action.

About the Lederer, Lockhart and Bridge Galleries and
The State University of New York at Geneseo
The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in William A. Brodie Hall and the Lockhart Gallery on Main Street present both contemporary and historic rotating exhibitions, including works by local, regional and national artists, and by faculty and student artists. The Bridge Gallery, a unique space bridging two wings of Brodie Hall, exhibits student work.
Geneseo's tradition of interweaving liberal and professional education began in 1867, when the state legislature passed an act authorizing the location of a "normal" (or teacher training) school in the community. In 1871, Geneseo welcomed its first students to the Wadsworth Normal and Training School, offering instruction to would-be teachers. Geneseo became an official campus of the State University of New York in 1948. Geneseo now enrolls more than 5,000 students in 54 undergraduate and three graduate programs. The college is located in Geneseo, N.Y., about 30 minutes south of Rochester, N.Y., 90 minutes west of Syracuse and 60 minutes east of Buffalo.
