SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 11!

The very meaning of the word photography is "drawing with light." Without light neither the image nor the art exist. If the photographer uses film, that light creates an ephemeral latent image that is brought to life in the darkroom. With digital cameras, the light hits the sensor, creating a cascade of electronic processes to deliver a final file. Using technology, the photographer creates art by being sensitive to light in the environment, whether found or provided, and committing it and its resulting shadows to film or file.

DCP invites you to submit images that highlight light. How does the selection, placement or quality of light help you tell a story or convey a mood to the viewer? We’re looking for images that have light as a significant element in the image, as if the light itself is a subject in the composition.

Selections will be featured in a virtual exhibition on the DCP website and in a gallery exhibit in June. We will be printing an exhibition book of all the selections that will be available for purchase.

This competition is not open to DCP employees, instructors, board members, corporate sponsors and partner companies, or their immediate families.

You can view our most recent online exhibition The Human Portrait here.

JUROR

John Langmore is an Austin, Texas, based photographer pursuing long-term personal projects. His first book, Open Range: America's Big-Outfit Cowboy (Twin Palms Publishers 2018), is the result of more than six years photographing on fourteen of the country's largest ranches. John spent his summers on working ranches from the age of twelve through his first year of law school in 1986. Over the past several years he returned to photograph the cowboy way of life he lived in his youth. John focuses on “big outfits,” a small number of very large ranches scattered across the West that run a full crew of cowboys, many being the same ranches he worked on and that his father visited for his book on the cowboy in 1975. When photographing, John rises before dawn and works fourteen hour days alongside the cowboys. His photographs bear the unique mark of someone intimately familiar with life in the saddle.

John is also the co-director/producer of the award-winning feature length documentary film, Cowboys: A Documentary Portrait.

John's second book, Fault Lines: Portraits of East Austin (Trinity University Press 2019), documents the rapidly disappearing communities of old East Austin.

John lives in Austin with his wife, Erika, and his two sons, Jordan and Grant.

Femalia | Guest Curator Elizabeth Flinsch

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 miniscule 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 accepts submissions of photographic art or lens-based artwork that challenges, criticizes, redefines, and disrupts our concepts of female identity. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Architecture is defined as the art or science of building, often with a focus on habitable structures.  Great architects like Gehry, Wright, and Gaudi come to mind as well as famous buildings like the Sydney Opera House and the Disney Music Hall in LA. But architecture can be much broader that habitable buildings. Consider the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids in Egypt and interiors like the main hall at New York's Grand Central Station.  Gardens can have a fundamental architecture as can other carefully planned spaces, and skylines may represent a collection of similar or different types of architecture.

Send us your vision of architecture with images that represent any of the facets mentioned above or another interpretation you envision.  Whole structures and architectural detail are all welcome.

As with all calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme | Liquid ~ Sky

  • | Start Date: 5/1/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 5/31/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Juror | Ellen Jantzen

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, air planes, and rockets pushing skyward.

​Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

  • | Host: Sierra Art Trails

The Call to Artists for the 18th annual Sierra Art Trails has begun.  We are excited to share 18 years of experience with our artists, patrons and supporters!  

After 18 months learning to cope with the Covid pandemic, things are looking promising.  Travel restrictions and safety precautions are lifting. By October most Americans will be vaccinated, the majority of businesses and public venues will be open.

Regardless of our progress, the pandemic has changed our lives, and some restrictions and guidelines will undoubtedly continue through 2021.  Because Sierra Art Trails takes place in many locations, each will have its own guidelines for health and safety.  We ask everyone, participants and visitors alike, to respect these guidelines, as well as broader community guidelines issued by government and health care officials.

The cost to participate as an artist is $150 USD, $25 due when applying, and the $125 balance due upon acceptance.

The exhibit prospectus is available on the Sierra Art Trails website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/ 

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.

New Schedule – Two weekends! In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to expand the event over two weekends.  Our goal is to thin crowds and allow artists greater flexibility. The show will take place Friday through Sunday, October 1st through 3rd AND October 8th through 11th.  Artists can elect to show any number of days. From only one to all six days of the event.  Show dates for each artist will be indicated in the exhibit catalog.

Artists must be Present to Participate - Meeting the artists and learning how and why they create is an important aspect of the show. Artists must be present at their sites from 10am to pm on the days they choose to exhibit.  

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.

Artists interested in applying can view the complete prospectus, and find general information on our website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/
