PLATFORM is a venue for exhibition, production and education pertaining to all aspects of photo-based media. Through the creation of an interactive dialogue, we contribute to the artistic climate of regional, national, and international artists. Our primary interest regarding the exhibition of photographic projects is to showcase those artists whose work demonstrates an appropriate technical standard and challenges the aesthetic and conceptual boundaries of the medium. PLATFORM strives to showcase the scope of photographic and digital art practices, from innovations arising from the traditional print, to advances stemming from digital photographic techniques, to the outer limits where photography dissolves into other media classifications.
