2004 Open Juried Exhibition
Jurors: Laurie and Jeff Urraro
The first international call for entries for what would come to be an annual event by Photomedia Center occurred in 2004. Urraro Gallery owners Laurie and Jeff Urraro selected twenty artists to exhibit in the inaugural show held at the Peach Street gallery in Erie, Pennsylvania from July 30 - September 4, 2004. Fifteen works from the show were chosen for view online at Photomedia Center simultaneously. Photomedia Center chose to purchase Louviere+Vanessa's Equilibrium from the show, which became the first piece to be included in its permanent print collection. Elise Nicol generously donated Number 358 from the show, which became the second work acquired for the collection. View highlights from the show below.
Complete list of participating artists includes: Lucia Bucklin, Fanky Chak, Liz Cockrum, Deb A. Davis, Celia Deaton, Paula Durbin, Amy Holmes George, Paul Giguere, Aimee Koch, Louviere+Vanessa, Jessica Maloney, Ian McDowell, Tina Mercer, Tom Morin, Lee Muslin, Elise Nicol, Emily Pearsons, Kris Risto, Christine Rothgeb, and Dominic Rouse.
