Juror| Sandra Chen Weinstein

‘Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.’ Ellie Wiesel. 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow - exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

“She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” sang the Beatles

Doors and windows and arches and frames and tunnels are so much a part of our lives. There are so many ways to think about them. We can look at them, or through them.  We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or just see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

 

For this call your images can focus on the "portal" itself like a closed door or a wonderful windowsill or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes.

Once again, we invite you to be creative and have fun in the process. 

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

JUROR

The science and art of photography have been woven into Nimi Natan‘s life. At age 11, an uncle in Tel Aviv gifted him a Kodak Instamatic camera which led to working in the darkroom. He got a nicer camera for his bar mitzvah which launched Nimi into a growing obsession with the craft. He worked as a photography assistant in college and later received an MS in Imaging Science which led to his first career as a film scientist at Polaroid. He also completed the Management of Innovation Executive Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

A change in direction found him at Wharton School, where he earned an MBA which led to him managing numerous banks and investment firms. Nimi has served on numerous boards of directors and advisory councils and continues to mentor several startups. He is a frequent speaker at finance conferences.

His photography today focuses on oceanscapes and photography of the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Nimi became a self-described “surf photographer” and has been published in various surf blogs and magazines. He has attended workshops and events at DCP and is a strong believer in the impact the arts can have in education and the importance of photography to capture beauty, adventure and to share stories.

Nimi is currently the President and CEO of Gulf Coast Small Business Lending, a Dallas-based direct national lender to small businesses. Mr. Natan founded the specialty-finance platform in 2013 and grew it to become one of the country’s largest SBA lenders before being acquired by Gulf Coast Bank & Trust in 2017


Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Narrative ~ Figments or Fragments | Juror: Emma Powell

  • | Start Date: 11/16/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 12/15/2021 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: Narrative ~ Figments or Fragments | Juror: Emma Powell

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 exclusions are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about; that which is presented within the frame to the viewer – and that which is left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores 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.​​​

Yosemite Renaissance 37 - 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. The exhibit opens in March 2022 at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in Oakhurst, CA, then travels to Kings Art Center in Hanford, Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock, and at 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 Yosemite Gateway Art Center in March 2022.

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 National Park, 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.

Partridge in a pear tree

Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree

 

There are references to trees in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual as a standalone item next to the house in a children’s drawing or in groups of every size from oases to huge forests.

 

In the forest and the jungle they create whole environments. Standing alone on hillsides they create lovely shadows. Trees can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will support a tire swing for a child on a hot day; provide sturdy posts to tie up the pet pup or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.  In winter snow covered trees create beautiful landscapes.

Rules

  • Accepted art must be the same as submitted online.
  • Show administrators reserve the right to reject a photograph when delivered to the show site if the photograph does not appear to be the same as the digital photograph submitted online or the matting and framing is unacceptable.
  • Every precaution will be taken to protect the artwork. However, InFocus and Tuolumne County Arts (TCA) will not be responsible for loss or damage to art entered in the show.
  • Accepted works must be submitted in framed or finished condition. Plastic or “fast” frames are not acceptable. Canvas wraps, metal or glass prints are not required to be placed in frames.  
  • Photos must have picture-hanging wire firmly attached across the back. Wires must be taut and placed between 1/3 and 1/4 the height of the frame from the top of the frame. Sharp wire ends must be taped. Canvas, metal and glass prints need wires or acceptable hanging systems (see photos below). Saw tooth, styrofoam or alligator hanging systems are not acceptable. 
  • The maximum width of an image is 34 inches measured on the outside edge of the frame. The maximum overall framed size is 60 inches, which is determined by adding the outside-framed height, plus the outside framed width together. For example, a 16"x20" print in a frame might measure 19"x23" when measured from outside edge to outside edge. Add 19"+23" to determine the overall framed size which, in this example, is 42".  
  • Photos may not weigh more than 12 lbs.

Field Assignment | Creating A Personal Shrine

Altar, Shrine, Memento - These terms are often used interchangeably. They may be as simple as a tiny matchbox or a Sacred Circle — or as elaborate as the Taj Mahal. Altars and Shrines have been created in nearly every culture and place where humans have lived. On a very personal level, they may be about solitude, reflection, and memory, but they may also be whimsical or even gaudy. The trappings of mourning and loss are the external representations and expressions of interior dialogues, offering a tangible form to our thoughts and memories - NYX

Praxis Gallery seeks artwork from Artist Members using an “Altoids” tin box as the basis for a shrine  containing artifacts, objects, photos, lens-based and collage art (just to name a few possibilities). All interpretations of this tin can shrine concept are welcome.  Artists are asked to submit photos of their shrine by the deadline. Eighteen shrines (the physical object) will be selected  to be shipped to Praxis for exhibit.
