In This Time is a juried exhibition for the Carnegie Arts Center's Lobby Galleries that seeks to explore creative responses to the current state of our communities, our nation and our world. Throughout history, artists have confronted, examined and responded to the issues of their moment. Today, the crises that are actively defining this time – from quarantine to climate change, from social justice to economic uncertainty— fundamentally impact our lives. This moment calls out for artists to help us collectively make sense of who and where we are. In This Time we rely on our creative community to explore the issues we confront. Through the arts we have opportunities to connect, heal, share diverse perspectives, and envision possibilities for change. Art can be witness, art can be a call to action, art can invite dialog. Above all, art creates community & nurtures social imagination. In this way the exhibition will support the Carnegie Arts Center’s mission to be the community’s resource for discovering and learning through the arts.

Dates of Exhibition: October 14, 2020 – January 17, 2021

Juror: Paulien Lethen

Dutch artist and gallery owner, Paulien Lethen, opened Holland Tunnel Art Newburgh/Gallery and Studios in May of 2018, shortly after she became a resident of Newburgh. Recognizing a lively local art community, she sets out to create a new place for exhibitions, performances, concerts, movie screenings and artist studios. Her goal is to create a cultural venue and art center where art and people can get together. In Newburgh, Lethen feels the same exciting artistic energy of Williamsburg, where she first established Holland Tunnel Gallery in 1997. The Brooklyn gallery gained recognition in the international art world and became a neighborhood icon as a microcosm of local and international talent. It enjoyed a successful run until 2007. Holland Tunnel Gallery Paros, on the island of Paros, Greece opened in 2000 and is still an elegant space for summer concerts, poetry readings, artist talks, and art classes.

Juror | Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer – and what is being left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the development of visual narratives through the still image. Stories may take any shape or form; they may be literal or fantasy, documentary or fiction; complex or minimal. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition, one of the largest shows anywhere dedicated to the transformative vision and skills of photographers who freely express their creativity by whatever means they choose, is back for its 5th year! Things are a bit different this year (what isn’t) and this year’s show will be all digital and will be presented on-line, but the principle is the same…

If you have been rejected from other shows or your work questioned because you use textures, composites, filters, or any of the other wonderful tools available to create your own vision, then you have found your home! Welcome to TRANSFORMATIONS!

To make things more exciting this year, we have revised the categories, made the awards higher, and are setting up a system so that you and your fellow entrants will select the award winners. No more moaning about the judges :) and you’ll get a chance to see just how hard it is to select the best from so many great entries!

There are two categories, which will be described below:

The Transformative Category – This is the general category that most people are likely to enter. The only requirement is that the images must have started life in your camera. You can modify or create the physical environment, apply in-camera techniques, shoot infrared, use composites, and/or use post processing to realize your own artistic reality. We are a very inclusive organization, so any degree of alteration from mild to extreme is welcome in our show. However, if the visual success of the image is clearly dependent on distinct image elements from someone else’s photography or art, or if more than 50% of the image is based on someone else’s photography or art, please use the Derivative Category.

The Derivative Category – This replaces the former Unlimited Exhibition and is a special purpose category to recognize the outstanding works that include or are entirely composed of major copyrightable elements of an original, previously created first work. Two things are important… 1.) You may not violate someone else’s copyright – if you are doing derivative work, we assume you are aware of the legalities involved; 2.) The work must be photographically based. For example, a picture of the Mona Lisa with a beard drawn on it or photo realistic art drawn on a computer will not be considered.

The two categories will be judged separately and separate prizes will be awarded for each.

We’re looking forward to seeing the great work created in these strange times and putting on the best TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition yet!

Hawkeye Alumni Art Show
The Signal and The Noise
Deadline: November 1, 2020
Dear Hawkeye Community College Alumni,
This winter, we will be holding the college's first alumni art show, and would like to invite you to take part. This group show will be on display at the Hawkeye Community College Van G. Miller Adult Learning Center in the third floor Art Gallery from December 2020 - February 2021. 
Open to all former students of Hawkeye Community College, regardless of program or emphasis area. This show is not open to current students. 
This show is titled The Signal and The Noise, and will be comprised of artwork which was created by alumni in response to recent world events. 
What is signal and noise? Signal and Noise are terms which reference the ability of a message to be detected above background noise. The signal is the meaningful information that you're trying to receive or communicate. The noise is that which interferes with the signal being delivered clearly, such as background noise or static. To get a sense of this, imagine trying to tune into a radio station.
In this instance, your artwork becomes the signal, or the message that you are trying to communicate across the noise which may be the chaos, trauma, and unrest of the world around you.

$5,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery.

Yosemite Renaissance is a non-profit art organization founded in 1985 to encourage artists to create diverse interpretations of Yosemite National Park and the surrounding Sierra Nevada region. The organization seeks to inspire a new generation of people to understand, preserve and protect our wild lands and natural places.

Philosophy and Approach

For over 150 years, artists have played an important role in the establishment of our state and national parks, inspiring people to visit iconic natural sites, and to protect our natural resources. 

Subject matter must be related to the landscape, environment, wildlife and people of Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada region. Both representational and non-representational submissions are allowed. We encourage artist who apply to celebrate the beauty and wonder of nature through art, but also to consider and explore environmental issues, ecology, biology, forestry, current events, political, spiritual and cultural themes.

Contributing artists should be aware of the geographic range of the show. While the nexus of the exhibit is Yosemite, the scope of the show also includes Sequoia National Park, Sierra National Forest, Ansel Adams Wilderness, Mono Lake, Bodie, the White Mountains, and more. The high Sierra, east side and west side foothills and canyons from Lake Tahoe to Tehachapi are all included! The area is huge, consisting of thousands of acres of rugged peaks, deep valleys, forests, lakes and streams.  If your work is inspired by these places, it will be considered.

Mastery of traditional media, technical expertise, style and personal vision are important factors in the selection process. Yosemite Renaissance also encourages innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.

The Exhibit Prosepectus is available on the Sierra Art Trails website at

The region encompassed by the show includes Oakhurst, Coarsegold, North Fork, Yosemite Lakes Park , and communities along Highway 49 from Ahwahnee to Mariposa. The show takes place in artist’s studios, homes, art galleries, wineries, and other businesses throughout the area.

Sierra Art Trails is open to both local artists and artists from outside the area.  Artists with studios located in Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties are encouraged to show in their home studios, and to share their show sites with others.

The planning committee will work with artists who do not have access to a suitable show site to help them find a location to show their work.  First consideration is given to artists living within the area, but the show is open to any artist interested in participating in the event, regardless of where they live.

Artists must be Present to Participate - Artists must be present at their sites both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Friday is an optional day for participating artists. 

Since our first exhibit in 2003, Sierra Art Trails has built a dedicated audience excited to attend year after year. In addition to visiting with the artists and purchasing works directly from the people who create them, visitors are encouraged to explore our communities, patronize our hotels and restaurants, and learn more about our area.

As an artist, there are many reasons to consider applying for the show. Participating artists are featured in the tour catalog, included in a month-long Preview Exhibit, and benefit from an extensive advertising campaign.  While successful sales are important, the promotional exposure alone is well worth the cost of participation.  Networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post show sales often result from participation in Sierra Art Trails.
