NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC

SEPT 12 – OCT 17, 2021

Recycle 2021, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show of art crafted from cast‐off, discarded, and re‐ purposed materials, will be a celebration of ingenuity and imagination.  We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two‐ and three‐ dimensional art created in the re‐use genre. To help us in this quest, we are once again greatly honored to have our juror, from Materials for the Arts.  This year it is the Director of Education, John Cloud Kaiser.

As well as looking for skill in the use of material, we want to see art that demonstrates the importance of conserving our limited natural resources. We look for how well the medium relates to the upcycling movement and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment.

Through art shows he curates at MFTA Gallery and his work with his art group Free Style Arts Association, he has been championing reuse-themed art in the museums, streets, and schools of New York City since 2000.  These works have appeared broadly, from The Metropolitan Museum, to the NYC Parks Dept., to The New York Times.

In the northern Hemisphere summer Is here, the weather is warm, and we have the great outdoors to play in.  The truth, however, is we can play indoors and outdoors all year long no matter what the weather. “Play Ball” brings to mind baseball, but sports, including things like polo and volleyball, are only part of how we play. Don’t forget the myriad of other outdoor and indoor games.  Consider childhood activities like hit the penny and hopscotch, running bases, playground swings, seesaws and merry go rounds. Indoors adds so much more with all the wonderful games like chess, mah jongg, bridge and Monopoly. Shots that focus on the game, the equipment, or the players are all part of the theme. Send in your interpretation of this broad and varied theme.

 

As with all NYC4PA calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC SEPT 12 – OCT 17, 2021

Threads That Bind, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition) calls for submissions from artists working in traditional and/or contemporary approaches to fiber. Submissions must use fiber materials and/or processes (weaving, knitting, spinning, rug-making, embroidery, crochet, braiding, beading, needlepoint, cross-stitch, dyeing, sewing) as a primary component of the work. The final form of submitted artwork may be a sculpture, photograph, performance or video, wearable or decorative art or fashion, as well as an embroidered, woven, crocheted, dyed or knitted wall-hung or free-standing piece. We welcome large-scale work up to 96" in any direction. 

 

Questions to ask yourself about your work when making a submission:

  • How have you embraced fiber processes during our sustained period of forced social isolation? 
  • Does fiber making provide comfort, or do you use fiber processes to push against the boundaries of social constraints and/or civil and social unrest?
  • What does fiber making in the 21st century mean to you, and why do you choose these processes and materials instead of or in addition to more "traditional" art-making media?

In addition to images of up to 3 artworks, please write 1-3 sentences answering one of the above 3 questions.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: In-Between Moments | Guest Curator: Sarah Weiss

  • | Start Date: 7/16/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 8/15/2021 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: In-Between Moments | Guest Curator: Sarah Weiss

French novelist Georges Perec declared that we should found “an anthropology of the ordinary” as revolt against cultural and mass media exploitation of the exotic - the relentless parade of trauma elevated above the routine of everyday events. Perec’s revolt against the frenzy of trauma (the shameful, the voyeuristic and the spectacular) was to excessively document the ordinary in daily life, meticulously accounting for everything and anything in one’s immediate surroundings in an active attempt to uncover the unimportant and the insignificant.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the in-between moments of life and endeavours to notice the unnoticeable, the mundane, the banal and anti-climactic. "In giving value to the ordinary we, in turn, begin to value the space of our own identity and everyday ‘normal’ experience that lies outside of commodified and predefined trajectories of trauma exploitation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

NOT ACCEPTED (at the MN State Fair)

The Mpls Photo Center   

Juror: Richard Ott   On Exhibit September 24 thru October 29    

Submission Deadline: August 22, 2021   Entry: $20

This special Call for Entry Exhibition is open ONLY to artists who submitted photographs to the MN State Fair Fine Arts Competition and were NOT ACCEPTED.

This tongue-in-cheek photography exhibit is open exclusively to the dedicated artists and photographers that agonize over and prepare their BEST photograph each year for the MN State Fair Art Competition and for one reason or another just don't get accepted.

They've been NOT ACCEPTED, once again! Only to then visit the final exhibit at the fairgrounds and having to face the ones that got in. There's very little objective criteria, and its just hard to know what to submit. We see some of our friends' and fellow photographers there, but not our own. Well this is our chance to take another swing, a "do-over", to celebrate some of the excellent photographs that did not quite make it, at the Mpls Photo Center gallery  in NordEast Minneapolis.

www.mplsphotocenter.com

We will feature this (slightly sub-par work) here in our new gallery, toast each other with a cold one, share hor's dourves, and remind ourselves why OUR photographs were actually better than the opther ones!

The Photo Center had a wonderful time hosting this controversial collection of "pretty good" pictures that were rejected from the State Fair in both 2018 and 2019, and are thrilled to try it again. We're happy to host you here in our 13th year serving the photography community. 

The Photography Show is a community-based exhibit, providing each of you another chance to show your fine photographs in a formal gallery setting. We DO value and support the State Fair photography competition each year, but ARE NOT affiliated with it in any manner.

We loved hosting this fun event before, and really appreciate the photographers and camaraderie in this group.

Our juror, Richard Ott, will be selecting 50 photographs for display here at the Photo Center, and we will be awarding Best of Show ($100 & MPC Membership), 1st Runner-Up ($50 & MPC Membership), and Honorable Mention (an MPC Membership). REGISTER HERE: https://www.mplsphotocenter.com/exhibits/exhibit-competitions.php

Opening Reception Friday, September 24 at 6:00 PM.

Exhibitors will be notified by August 30. Exhibit Prints will be due at the Mpls Photo Center (ready for hanging) by Monday September 20.

Please follow the prompts and Register on the Smarter Entry platform. 

You've done all the hard work already making and submitting your photograph to The Fair. Give this Photography Exhibit a go and breathe some new life into it! 

We will be offering and facilitating high-quality photographic printing and framing at value-pricing if you need help preparing your photograph for exhibit. Stay tuned for those details!

Thanks for participating and best wishes,

Jeff Harrington, Executive Director

 

 

 


SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Contemporary Landscape '21

  • | Start Date: 7/7/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 8/29/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The landscape, whether grand or personal, has been a subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the landscape was one of most accessible and familiar subjects available.

The SE Center is looking for images of the landscape, whether grand vistas or more personal, intimate treatments. We're looking for photographers who can make a statement with their landscapes, pull us in and make us want to explore. Black-and-white or  color, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for the Contemporary Landscape is William Neill. William Neill, a resident of the Yosemite National Park area since 1977, is a landscape photographer concerned with conveying the deep, spiritual beauty he sees and feels in Nature. Neill's award-winning photography has been widely published in books, magazines, calendars, posters, and his limited-edition prints have been collected and exhibited in museums and galleries nationally, including the Museum of Fine Art Boston, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, The Vernon Collection, and The Polaroid Collection. Neill received a BA degree in Environmental Conservation at the University of Colorado. In 1995, Neill received the Sierra Club's Ansel Adams Award for conservation photograph

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.


PhotoSC Call for Entry

Surrealism: The Unusual and the Subversive

  • | Start Date: 7/13/2021 12:00:00 PM (PT)
  • | End Date: 8/29/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: PhotoSC

PhotoSC’s juried show Surrealism: The Unusual and the Subversive aims to explore experiences that leave us unsettled, afraid, and/or potentially even disturbed. The exhibition challenges the artist to offer allegorical or emblematic commentaries on the culture and politics of our day, to illustrate the ‘horrors’ of our time, and/or to address personal or collective fears and mysteries often represented as psychological narratives.

For artists, photography offers a unique tool in creating images that not only represent the world in actuality, but to also re-present such in strange, abstract and revolutionary ways – images that challenge, blur or undo the boundaries how the world is understood and perceived; images that collapse any distinction between what is and what is not; and images that add the hallmarks of the element of surprise; unexpected juxtaposition; a distortion of reality; a dream-like subject matter; interest in subconscious and the magical, metaphorical and instinctive. Images where meaning is constructed thru the camera, the treatment of the print, or the use of collage are all welcome. Photography, from any stylistic approach - be it documentary, conceptual, fine art, abstract, etc., - is an immensely powerful storytelling tool. Tell us about the unusual, the irrational or the events that critique ideology. Better yet, Show us.

Juried by Natalie Dupecher, the top three show winners will receive cash prizes of $500 | $350 | $150 respectively, and will be featured in an online exhibition and interview on the PhotoSC’s website.

Juror | Cory Fitzgerald

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Spanning two centuries, night photography has captured the collective imagination of the masses. From the infamously long exposures required by early artists, to high speed color films and the advent of digital technology, the subject of the night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, factories, artificial structures and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form. All subjects (people, places and things), genres, capture types, color, black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Elements of Renewal

A Carnegie Arts Center Lobby Gallery Exhibition, October 6, 2021- January 23, 2022

The story of Turlock’s Carnegie Arts Center is one of renewal and renaissance. From the ashes of fire in 2005, a new entity was born in 2011. In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we plan a juried exhibition reflecting the significance of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire.

For centuries, these four archetypal elements have been used to explain the nature of all matter. Many ancient cultures—Greece, Egypt, Babylonia, Persia, Japan, Tibet—had similar understandings. These elements each carry unique properties and symbolic meanings. At some level, all may be seen to have a relationship to the concept of rebirth and growth:

  • Earth is the physical matter, the terrestrial world and the changing seasons; this extends to representations of mother nature and fertility.
  • Water is a source of life, and is often associated with the qualities of imagination and intuition; it can also be a purifier and the giver of new life.
  • Air can represent wind and weather, as well as the breath and the spirit in all living things; to start anew we may “breathe life” into something.
  • Fire is the element of passion and energy, but it is also included in myths of purification and rebirth – like the phoenix – where destruction and growth go hand-in-hand.

Artists from throughout California are invited to submit their work for this juried exhibition. Works may be in any medium or style. Celebrate the elements with us through your representational, symbolic or abstract depiction of one or more of the four Elements of Renewal.

Entry Deadline: Sunday, September 5, 2021, at 5 p.m.

Dates of Exhibition: October 6, 2021 – January 23, 2022

Media Accepted: Oils and Acrylics, Photography and Digital Media, Prints, Drawings, Watercolors, Collage and Mixed Media, Textiles, Ceramics, Sculpture, Decorative Arts

Awards: Grand Prize $500; Two Awards of Merit $250; Four Honorable Mentions $50

Juror: Hope Werness, Professor Emerita, CSU Stanislaus Art Department, author of The Continuum Encyclopedia of Animal Symbolism in World Art and The Continuum Encyclopedia of Native Art

Submissions: Please review the complete rules for entering at: www.CarnegieArtsTurlock.org/call-for-entries.  Works that have previously been exhibited at the Carnegie Arts Center will not be accepted. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 5, 2021.

THE BIRDS   

MPLS Photo Center     Juror, Curtis Juliber

Submission Deadline: September 12   

FEE: 3 images for $25     On Exhibit November 5

Our fine-feathered friends are everywhere. We see and hear them in our backyards, the woods, the lake, the river, the city, winter, spring, summer and fall. Ubiqiuitous and awe-inspiring, they fly, hop, chirp and chop and we have been utterly fascinated with them from the beginning of time. Photographing them well is an endeavor that requires much patience, cunning, expertise and the proper gear. More an obsession than a genre, the bar for excellence is very high, yet we all try to capture a stunning portrait of our avarian companions at one time or another. This competition hopes to consider your very best and unique bird photographs. At rest, in flight, stalking, walking, anywhere and anytime. The rules are simple: It needs to have feathers. Upland, prairie, tundra, or the tropics. Color or Black & White, digital and film. If its got a beak it has a chance. We will look to exhbit an eclectic flock of inspired photographs that celebrate "The Birds". Weather you've been inspired by Porter or Penn, Hitchcock or Brandenburg; submit your "most excellent" and help us celebrate these glorious, mysterious, modern-day dinosaurs that so elegantly share our world. 

Opening Reception, Friday November 5 at the Mpls Photo Center Main Gallery. Thru January 5.
