ReMix is part of Denver's Month of Photography 2017, a biennial celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative events throughout Denver and internationally.  We are joining numerous museums, galleries and schools to create exciting artistic and educational events.  SYNC Gallery is located in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe which is known for its vibrant art scene.

~ Accepting submissions for 2D and 3D photo-based work ~

Show us how you MIX it up!

SYNC Gallery is seeking original work for ReMix, a juried multi-media photographic exhibition exploring alternative approaches for resolving the balance between process & materials along with imagery and content.

This exhibit will celebrate the photograph in all forms: all mediums of artists’ individual art practices mixed with any form of photography, collage of photographic materials, alternative printing processes, and everything in between.  ReMix seeks to create a diverse and exciting exhibition of both 2D and 3D photo-based work. There is no limitation as to subject matter.
