Modern Analog: Historical Processes in the Digital World

This call for entry and gallery exhibition is open to all ages and skill levels who use analog as part of their creative process. There are no restrictions on the type of camera or techniques used as long as the artist used at least one analog process during the creation of the final image. This includes pure analog from start to finish, capture on film and print digital or vice versa, polaroids, alt processes, digital negs, or any other technique that incorporates the unique traits and discipline of analog into their work. You will be asked to provide a brief description of the workflow and processes used when you submit your work. 

Many photographers use analog as a way to change the way they shoot and to challenge themselves to slow down. Working intentionally on one image at a time encourages a new way of seeing and those limits often encourage creativity that is a shift from the rapid fire, instant gratification of the digital world.

We are fortunate to have Lisa Elmaleh as the juror for this call. Lisa is a visual artist, educator, and documentarian who works exclusively in non-digital formats with an emphasis on wet plate collodion and large format silver gelatin.

Open to submissions from all ages and skill level, selections from this competition will be presented in an exhibition in the DCP Gallery in March 2023. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third places.

This competition and exhibition are sponsored by Lone Star Darkroom and Don’s Used Photo Equipment.

Entry fees help support our mission as a 501c3 nonprofit to operate our community gallery and to serve as a focal point for creators and appreciators of all forms of photography through education, mentorship, exhibitions, and community outreach.

JUROR
Lisa Elmaleh is an American visual artist, educator, and documentarian based in Hampshire County, West Virginia. She specializes in large-format work in tintype, glass negative, and celluloid film. Since 2007, she has been traveling across the US documenting American landscapes, life, and culture. 

Born in Miami, Florida (1984), Lisa completed a BFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2007, during which time she was awarded the Silas Rhodes Scholarship. Upon graduating, she received the prestigious Tierney Fellowship to work on a project that evolved into an in-depth visual documentation of the impact of climate change on the Everglades. The culmination of this project resulted in a book titled Everglades published in 2016 by Zatara Press. 

Elmaleh's work has been exhibited nationwide and recognized by the Aaron Siskind Foundation, Puffin Foundation, The Tierney Foundation, amongst others. Her work has been published by Harper's Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, CNN, The New York Times, National Geographic, Oxford American, Garden & Gun, and NPR, amongst others.

In 2010, Lisa began to work on a long-term ongoing project documenting traditional Appalachian musicians through tintype portraiture as a historic documentation of American culture. 

In 2012, while still living in New York, she worked on a one-year visual autobiography, where she made daily self-portraits with her 8x10 camera to give a raw inside look at her life as a female visual artist.

Since 2014, Lisa has lived in Paw Paw, West Virginia. Throughout the years, she has been documenting the landscape, culture, and community around her. 

In 2017, Lisa began traveling from the Appalachian Mountains, across to the west coast of America, and down to the US-Mexico border to document the landscape, culture, people, and environment in a time of great political divide. This ongoing project combines portraiture, landscape, and documentary photography.

Lisa travels in truck containing her bed, and a portable wet plate darkroom. She has a traditional black and white darkroom where she prints in West Virginia.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Frames Within Frames | Juror: Dallas Crow 2023

  • | Start Date: 1/3/2023 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 2/1/2023 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme: Frames Within Frames | Juror: Dallas Crow

Speaking of the power of photography, Garry Winogrand once said, “Putting four edges around a collection of information or facts transforms it.” Let’s take that a step further: what happens when you put a frame—in the form of a doorway, window, mirror, casket, another picture, or some other structure—in the photograph itself? It may intensify the focus on the thing framed, but what about what’s happening in the margins between the interior frame and the edge of the picture? How does the composition work as a whole? How do the elements inside and outside the framing device interact? What has the photographer gained by including a frame within the picture rather than making it the border of the entire image?

Praxis seeks the submission of photographic art That explores a frame or multiple frames within an image as the conceptual basis for the aesthetic expression. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

VAGF is offering our members an opportunity to participate in a Bowl Painting Party benefiting Frisco Fastpacs on February 7th.

We are excited to support a local Frisco charity whose mission is to ensure that no child in Frisco has to endure hunger when school is not in session. Every week throughout the school year they deliver individual, pre-packed meal bags of non-perishable food to all 72 Frisco ISD schools. Each bag contains seven meals for children to have over the weekend. Frisco Fastpacs is a private 501(c)3 non-profit, that operates completely on donations of food and funds from the private sector.

On February 7, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. we will gather at Make Expressions Frisco (2995 Preston Rd, #1535, Frisco Tx 75034). Each artist will paint a bowl (or a plate) using supplies provided by Make Expressions. VAGF will provide food and drinks for this event. The painting party is limited to the first 20 artists who respond to this call. 

The submission fee of $35 covers your seat at the party, all supplies needed, and your submission of up to two images of your original artwork for additional opportunity to auction at the FEB 23rd fundraising event - (open theme/hanging instructions below for the artworks that would be available for auction at the Empty Bowls event later in the month... more info about the Empty Bowls Event below).  Submission Deadline February 2nd.

 

EMPTY BOWLS EVENT INFO

Empty Bowls February 23rd is a ticketed event (this is the mian fundraising event for Frisco Fastpacs at Verona Villa in Friso TX) and our VAGF artist's painted bowls/plates will be auctioned as a fundraiser. 

If you particpate in our private VAGF bowl/plate painting party and uploaded up to two images of artwork you wish to donate for this fundraiser - your art piece(s) will be set up on art panels during the Empyt Bowls event for opportunity to be auctioned off at the event.  The artist will receive 50% of the final price, with the other 50% being split between Frisco Fastpacs and VAGF. If the artwork is not sold at auction, it can be picked up at the end of the event. Pieces must have value of at least $100.

If you wish to attend the main Empty Bowls Frisco event on the February 23rd, you can purchase tickets at $75 each separately.   Volunteering opportunities will be available and posted after the bowl painting party so we know how many persons we need for the artworks auction portion of the evening. 

All submitted works should be framed and ready-to-hang with wire taut at the upper fourth of the frame. Saw hook hanging will not be accepted. All works on 1/2” canvases should be framed. All the works on 1” to 2” canvases need to have neatly painted edges if not framed. 

Due to space limitations, art pieces cannot exceed 24 inches in either dimension (including the frame).

Spring, the death of winter. Like life and death, so spring and winter. The cycle is truly endless, and endless it should be. When Persephone wakes from her slumber deep within the Underworld, her heart yearns not for the cold, dead embrace of Hades but for her mother, Demeter, and the mortal realm above. When daughter and mother are reunited, the Earth erupts with ecstasy. Gaia herself nurtures seeds as they push through the ground, eager to claim their right to live. Flora and fauna restore hope as Apollo’s chariot weaves through the sky. Show us the rivers meandering across the land, the Parthenon at dusk and the fields in full bloom. Show us the life spring gives, show us the warmth it brings, above all, show us what spring truly means to you.

Spring 2023 is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional, non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.


Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Femalia | Curated By: Praxis Directors

We are programmed to understand gender and femininity within narrow and restrictive definitions. Photographs, both historical and contemporary, often reinforce these definitions and boundaries that no longer serve us. 

Photography has the power to transcend all manner of boundaries. It can blur minuscule lines between otherwise dichotomous realms of physical and philosophical space. If we are to reflect on photography’s capacity to challenge concepts of gender and femininity, we enter into an extraordinary opportunity to re-envision and expand our understanding of all who identify as women. We can confront our programmed understandings and reinterpret, both what is in front of the camera and what is behind it. 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women, femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. This is an inclusive call that is open to all that apply. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Plein Air painting dates back to the French impressionists who left their studios to paint “in the open air.” Plein Air painting is exhilarating and challenging for artists who attempt to quickly capture the light and colors of the scene before them. The French term "plein air" means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pieces out of doors rather than in a studio.

 

There will be a welcome reception as well as a final reception during which wet paint competition art pieces will be auctioned.  Awards presentation for the overall three-day artwork and for wet paint competition will take place during the final reception on 4/15. Each day completed Plein Air artwork will be exhibited at The Grove at the Commons and will be available for purchase.  All artwork completed during this competition must be for sale.

National Association of Women Artists South Carolina Chapter

Presents Online Exhibit - We See: Creating from Verse

March 15 - May 1, 2023

Reception at Annual Luncheon, date to be announced

Juror: Mary Edna Fraser

 

We See: Creating from Verse

Writers of literature have long used art as an inspiration for their written work. In this exhibit we are turning this around and using poetry as a device to conceive a work of art. The exhibit theme encourages artists to be inspired by the poetry of South Carolina poet, Lisa Hammond. In this show, we ask SC Chapter members to engage with Hammond’s poetry and create a visual of our experience.

A Statement from Lisa Hammond: Our featured poet for We See: Creating from Verse


“Poetry and art share one heart: both give us new ways of seeing. Both art forms speak to all our senses—we hear the sky in Van Gogh’s Starry Night, we long to reach high to stroke the sleek bronze flank of one of Anna Hyatt Huntington's horses—but for many of us, art is an exercise in sight. The artist brings us to an object, an experience, a moment and shows us something we have never seen before. Poetry brings us to these revelations through words instead of watercolor, images rendered in language instead of ink. For me as a writer, a poem often begins in something I see—the Catawba spider lilies blooming mid-river, an empty bluebird egg on a dirt road. One of the great gifts of my writing life has been the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from visual artists, because that same spider lily photographed or painted or stitched gains a new depth, because writing in a community of the artistically like-minded is a wealth of riches. When writers and visual artists come together in their respective arts, we see both the subject of the art and art itself anew.”

 

Lisa Hammond’s writing is grounded in the sometimes-haunted landscapes of South Carolina and explores the intersections between story, art, history, family, and memory, all in the ordinary objects of her Southern home. Dr. Hammond is Director of Faculty Affairs in the Office of the Provost at the University of South Carolina and is a Professor of English at the University of South Carolina Lancaster. Her poetry is published widely. See more at http://www.lisaghammond.com/p/poetry.html

NYC4PA Call for Entry

NYC4PA PATTERNS AND SHADOWS 2023

  • | Start Date: 1/8/2023 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 4/16/2023 11:59:00 PM (PT)

  • | Host: NYC4PA

Walking anywhere in the world at different times of day you can see dramatic changes as the light goes from midday bright to dusk.  Early morning/late afternoon light can transform a simple scene to one of great interest as shadows grow longer and shorter.  Consider city streets with shadows of tall buildings crossing sidewalks, cars, busses and people.  Similarly bright light casting shadows on a flight of stairs creates a canvas of black and white stripes. Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the line-up of palm trees in the tropics with the shadows cast along a sandy beach, rows of theater chairs etc. Different images, interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well.  Be creative - send us your best.
