"When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo - symmetry, or color or contrast - and it's my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.” Connor Franta
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation. All subject matters, genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

We are excited to announce our eleventh annual national juried art show, Wide Open 11 opening May 9, 2020. This year we are privileged and delighted to have returning to BWAC as a juror one of New York’s very knowledgeable curators, Paulina Pobocha, of MoMA. With her guidance and selections, we look forward to another spectacular show.
Ours is a truly unique and generous space – a beautiful stone Civil War‐era warehouse overlooking New York Harbor from the piers of Red Hook, in Brooklyn NY. We welcome the opportunity to exhibit unusually large work, and look forward to exhibiting artwork from all around the country, work in all sizes, and subjects, and media.

Call to Artists for Submissions:

The broad theme of Wide Open 11 encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love ‐ wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open ‐ but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite ‐ wide open to attack…corruption…failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore the idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.

Paulina Pobocha is an Associate Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

She was appointed critic at the Yale University School of Art in 2011.

Juroring: All juroring for will be on‐line. Entries that differ significantly from their digital images may be rejected. Decision of the juror is final.
Transparent as Glass? Art Show: Glass has been created and used by mankind from the ancient Egyptians. It is only recently, since mid 20th century, that glass has been acknowledged as an art form. It has wonderful physical properties - transparent or opaque - allowing one to see the illusion of space and depth, the constant play of positive and negative spaces. This causes a magical flow within the art, embodying fun, playfulness, and the spiritual energy of nature.

Some people believe that all photographs are, in fact, self-portraits, so if we expand that thinking, self is defined by our growing up and the people who shape our lives.
Photographers are mining those nearest and dearest for significant explorations of their personal histories and the result is an exciting and varied look at family. As participant observers, we document and at the same time, participate in familial worlds. Let us in and show us what is behind the front door.
Think literally and figuratively, monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.
Our juror for the Family is Aline Smithson. After a career as a New York Fashion Editor and working along side the greats of fashion photography, Aline Smithson discovered the family Rolleiflex and never looked back. An artist now represented by galleries in the U.S. and Europe and published throughout the world, Aline continues to create her award-winning photography with humor, compassion, and a 50-year-old camera
There are new shiny things all around us, but are they as interesting as an old rusted car, peeling paint on a run down building, or half fallen walls in a dilapidated castle. There is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted... making those images more compelling and interesting than those of readily available brand new items!
Consider the amazing textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard. Neighborhoods, disparagingly called "run down", are treasure troves of "decayed" tumble down houses, "corroded" discarded toys, "rusted" cars, trash cans and so on.
Decay, Corrosion, Rust.... can take many forms; black and white, color, abstract - all photographic media are welcome.

This geographically unique Exhibition is open to all photographers. The exhibit theme is: NordEast. Please submit up to 10 images for consideration. B&W or Color or Digital Art. Our most-excellent juror, Jon Oulman (the de facto Mayor of Northeast Minneapolis) will be selecting the images for exhibit in our Jefferson Gallery, and will debut for Art-A-Whirl 2020 on Friday, May 15. The Call for Entry submissions CLOSE at midnight on Sunday, April 5. The selection/judging process is done on-line at very high-resolution, in random order, and is blind/anonymous.
MPC will award honors for Best of Show, 1st Runner-up, and 3rd Place with Cash Prizes of $150, $100, and $50 respectively, and a 3-month MPC Membership gratis, for all three winners.
The Theme: NordEast
"NorthEast Minneapolis. Widely dubbed "NordEast". And the new home of the Mpls Photo Center.
The coveted, mildly edgy neighborhood that somehow just exudes authentic and cool and art, and boasts "the great-white way" of NE dive bars, featuring real people wielding $3 highballs and ice cold PBRs. All in a tidy stretch from Marshall to Johnson, and St. Anthony Parkway to Hennepin Avenue.
It is a place... but more-so a state of mind. Great neighborhoods like this stew and evolve and congeal over time, and you can't rush it and you sure can't plan it. Dripping with ethnicity and eccentricity, this urban sprawl is home to a boatload of great musicians, artists, restauranteurs, hipsters, grandmas, hard-workin' Joes, and hangers-on.
We know who we are, and we can spot the pretenders coming half-way across the Lowry bridge. But we'll always give you a chance to visit and play nice. Afterall, we have our own beer named after us, and it is mighty tasty, and decidedly NOT an IPA.
There's a de facto mayor of this little pocket of goodness, and he cuts hair pretty good, LOVES photography, and has been presenting great music and righteous cocktails for years on the little corner of grunge he's staked out at University & 13th. You'd know him as Jon (no H) the 331 guy. He'd like to see your favorite photographs of our lovely neighborhood so we can hang them here at the Mpls Photo Center during Art-A-Whirl.
We're expecting alot of images from this very competitive creative community, and have room for only 50. So he's got a tough job, but we're confident he will acquit himself honorably.
So resurrect that old sleeve of negatives you saw in your sock drawer last month, or for God's sake pull your digital files together, or better yet shoot something new and show us your take on YOUR NordEast.
All photographers selected for exhibit will be notified which of their image(s ) are included in the show by Email on April 10. Framed exhibit prints are due to the Mpls Photo Center for installation by May 8, 2020 at 5:00 PM Central Time. All exhibiting artists will be honored and featured that evening here at the MPC Galleries. The reception is FREE and Open to the Public. We expect you will invite all your family and friends to this prestigious event. It is always well-attended and often draws local media attention.
The Opening Reception for the NordEast exhibit will be Friday, May 15 at 6:30 PM.
We are excited about the potential for an excellent exhibit, and a wonderful showcase for the talented and passionate photographers of NorthEast Minneapolis, the Twin Cities and beyond.

Growing up in NYC each of us had the opportunity to experience the wonderful world of botanicals at both the New York and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. We had the opportunity to develop an early appreciation for the variety of life that starts with a seed, much of it in spectacular greenery and flowers bursting with color.
Though seeds can be tiny and come in an envelope at the nursery, large and found in the center of a fruit, or black and found in a watermelon; they all hold the promise to become glorious botanicals.
With spring approaching in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern, capture your unique view of favorite flowers, trees in bloom, variegated leaf patterns, vines etc. in gardens, at the beach, on your window sill, or in the rain forest.
As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.
Show your work to our influential jury!

The exhibit is the largest art event in our area, showcasing a wide range of fine art and fine craft in communities throughout Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties.
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 visual artists and artisans working in all media including but not limited to; painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, printmaking, mixed media, papermaking, woodcarving, digital art, jewelry, textile arts, and art glass. Mass produced crafts, gift items, etc. will not be accepted.
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.
