Yosemite Renaissance 36 - Call to Artists

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by Yosemite and the California Sierra Nevada region to display and promote their art. This year, the exhibit opens at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in Oakhurst then travels to Kings Art Center in Hanford, Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock,and the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley.

Awards

$4,000 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.

  • | Start Date: 12/6/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 3/7/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)

  • | Host: NYC4PA

ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY

Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual

reality, but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

The early days of photography centered on true to life imagery i.e. family portraits, images of streets, towns, mansions...  Over time photographers expanded their vision to more moody images, ultimately to where photography is today; an all encompassing art form, generated by camera and lens, and producing a vast sampling of imagery from reality to less recognizable abstracts.

This call is about the abstracts; those images that are not instantly identified as that person, that thing, etc.  It doesn't matter if you photograph something abstract or create the abstraction through photographic processes. If it is a macro shot, image of a small area on a graffiti wall, or fanciful result of manipulation, if the resulting image is abstract it works.   

As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

Flora

  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5

  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

Artists throughout the ages have been drawn to the vast and varied world of flora. What moves you? Do you celebrate the essence of beauty or strive to heighten recognition of the perilous path of our environment? Are you inspired by a single bloom or a profusion of blossoms in a lush bouquet, enchanted gardens manicured or messy, plants endangered or invasive, carefully cultivated or sown by nature, bursting forth or shriveling on a vine?

Our Juror, Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist widely known for her ongoing series of hand-gilded photographs, States of Grace - illuminated impressions of grace in the natural world. Drawn to the serenity she finds in the sinuous elegance of organic forms, she embraces photography to preserve vanishing moments of beauty in our vulnerable environment.

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived.

Bruce Skinner is a versatile and creative photographer accomplished in location and studio photography; Bruce began his journey behind the camera in 1984. A casual, relaxed kind of guy, he appreciates a bad pun and is known to make more than a few himself.  Personable and relaxed, he is able to set his clients at ease and bring out their best through humor and creativity.

Published, his work has been featured in numerous magazines, album covers, governmental publications, fine art galleries and more. By finding unique perspectives, he has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades for his landscape, environmental, architectural and portrait work.

Pennsylvania Center For Photography Call for Entry

ODYSSEY 2021

  • | Start Date: 1/15/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 3/8/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 2
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Pennsylvania Center For Photography

The ODYSSEY Exhibition and its predecessor, the AMERICANA Exhibition, have been among the largest and most successful shows on the East Coast since their inception six years ago. This year the PCP flagship show returns, albeit in a bit of a different format that is dictated by these strange times. This year’s show will be all digital and will be presented on-line, but the principle is the same…

WHATEVER you shoot and WHEREVER your photographic journey has taken you is eligible for entry. Virtually any subject, taken anywhere in the world, is eligible. That’s as wide open as we can make it and the only exclusions are overtly sexual images (it’s a family show) and images that depict overt cruelty to animals (including humans). The only requirement to enter is that the images need to be good! Really, that’s all – don’t overthink it!

WHAT’S CHANGED?

#1 - We are putting our trademark Camera Club Challenge on hold for this year in recognition that most clubs are not physically meeting, which would present logistical issues to club organizers.

#2 - Since the show will be presented digitally, we are passing the savings in costs inherent in doing a physical show back to the photographers by way of higher award amounts, plus…

#3 – We are adding three new special prize categories to make things interesting, They are… Best Black & White Photograph, Best Wildlife Photograph, plus a discretionary Director’s Choice award that has some very specific requirements and represents a unique challenge! (See the Prospectus for details.)

Sierra Art Trails 2020 has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Call to Artists for the 18th annual Sierra Art Trails will begin Feb 1st, 2021.  

We are excited to share 18 years of experience with our artists, patrons and supporters!  

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

The Exhibit Prosepectus 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.

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.

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