Read it and weep: This late breaking news just came in from the State Dept. of Education and Early Development:


JUNEAU – As construction of the new State Library, Archives, and Museum building progresses, Alaska Positive – the museum’s statewide juried photographic exhibition – will be postponed until 2016, when the museum reopens in the new State Library, Archives and Museum building. The call for entries will be in spring 2016, and the Alaska Positive exhibition will open in fall 2016. 


Please note that Rarefied Light, the photography exhibit put on by the Alaska Photographic Center, will have its next call for entry in April 2014. The juror will be renowned photographer Joyce Tenneson. The Anchorage Museum will host Tenneson for the Rarefied Light lecture and workshopJuly 24–27, and the exhibit will open at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center in October. The prospectus coming out in April will have detailed information about entries and workshop registration.
