The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation... an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The sublime landscape is defined as having the quality of such greatness, magnitude or intensity, whether physical, metaphysical, moral, aesthetic or spiritual, that our ability to perceive or comprehend it is temporarily overwhelmed. According to aesthetic philosophy, sublime landscapes can include any of five visual components: 1) great ideas, 2) passion, 3) the appropriate use of figures, 4) the right aesthetic diction, and 5) a skillful composition. 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic artwork that explores the many iterations of this idea. We encourage a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the sublime landscape.

All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

SHOW DESCRIPTION - “All Creatures Great and Small” – This show is all about the critters we share our lives with… in the wild, and as our companions and family members.  Animals touch our lives in so many ways, and remind us in caring for them what it is to be human.

 

JUDGEAndrea Morris - In her decades-spanning practice, Andrea Morris has explored wildlife and the human form through different materials and mediums. Self-taught, Andrea began painting as a means of dealing with the complexities of life in an everchanging social atmosphere.  In her early work she created drawings of horses and familiar animals and later studied portrait works. Andrea later experimented with abstraction and assemblage in an attempt to free herself from the traditional genre.  She returned to making paintings and watercolors in 2000. Andrea has developed the use of strong patterns and colors to represent the subjects in her compositions and uses the diverse objects to represent thoughts and emotions to tell the story behind the painting

Andrea has been teaching advanced levels of painting in watercolor, oils, acrylic and drawing for more than ten years.  Her work has been displayed and exhibited in many art venues in California and Arizona.

Andrea’s greatest joy has been in sharing her knowledge and love of art with fellow artists and documenting her journey of discovery and fascination in artistic expression.

Andrea has been commissioned to paint many murals and individual paintings for clients across the United States.  www.andreamorrisart.com

 

CATEGORIES - all mediums are accepted.

Our juror for Flora is Kate Breakey. Kate is known for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs, which often feature luminous representations of birds, flowers, animals, and insects. Beginning with a silver photographic image, she paints over this with many transparent layers of oil, melding together different media.

NOT ACCEPTED  Photography Show 

The Mpls Photo Center  September 20 thru October 18

Submission Deadline August 10, 2019

This special Call for Entry Exhibition is open Free of Charge 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 ONLY for 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. And it hurts! 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 at our new galleries in NordEast Minneapolis.

www.mplsphotocenter.com

Each photographer whose most-excellent photographs (but not quite good enough, apparently, for some unknown reason) that are eventually displayed were NOT ACCEPTED by the Judge for the Mn State Fair competition in 2019.

We will feature this slightly sub-par work (just kidding) here in our new galleries, toast each other with a cold one or four, chomp hor's dourves, and party like its 2019 damn it!

The Mpls Photo Center had a wonderful time hosting this controversial collection of "pretty good" pictures that were rejected from the State Fair in 2017, and we're thrilled to try it again. We're excited to host you here in our 11th year serving the community, and debut our brand-new facility, classrooms, galleries, studios and darkrooms if you have not visited already!

The NOT ACCEPTED Photography Show is a community-based exhibit, FREE of Charge, 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 cool event before, and really appreciate the photographers and camaraderie and we love another great excuse to show excellent photographs here at the Mpls Photo Center!

Our jury will be selecting 60 photographs for display here, and we will be awarding Best of Show ($200 & MPC Membership), 1st Runner-Up ($100 & MPC Membership), and Honorable Mention (an MPC Membership). REGISTER HERE: https://www.mplsphotocenter.com/exhibits/exhibit-competitions.php

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

 

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!

You've done all the hard work already making and selecting and editing and submitting your photograph to The Fair. 

Give this Photography Show a go and breathe some new life into it. Afterall, photography is supposed to be fun, and people need to see it!

Thanks for participating and best wishes,

Jeff Harrington, Executive Director

Mpls Photo Center

SECONDARY COLORS:  ORANGE, GREEN, and PURPLE are as impactful and can be the foundation for equally compelling imagery.  Images in which one of these colors stands out as a critical element are what we are looking for. The image can be a black and white with a single point of color, a Green, Orange or Purple monochrome, or any image where a SECONDARY COLOR stands out as a focal point. The possibilities in nature alone are endless with green leaves and lawns, orange bursts of autumn color and purple flowers as well as magical purple hazes that can set over late afternoon scenes.  Clothing, pumpkins, traffic lights, automobiles, the list goes on and on. 

Once again we invite your best and most creative.

NOTEFor each image you will select one of the categories ORANGE, PURPLE or GREEN.

The Beauty of Nature

The falling of snowflakes coming down
Making a blanket of white on the ground.
Autumn with red and gold-leaves,
Falling to the ground, in a cool breeze.
The rising of the sun of crimson,
A buzzing of the Bees,
As they go on their mission.
A cool-breeze blowing in the trees.
The beautiful- flowers of red, yellow, and blue.
The sparkling of grass, with morning-dew.
The sea is beautiful, with Blue-sky above.
The flying of sea-gulls and of doves.
The birds singing up in the trees,
As a gentle-wind blows the green-leaves.
Beautiful-butterflies going their way.
The beauty of nature, really make my day!

By Winifred Bullard

Submissions might include representations of mythic heroes, cultural icons, personal mentors, or civic figures – stories or people that represent what it means to be a hero. 

Media: Any creative medium will be considered eligible.

Welcome to TRANSFORMATIONS!

November 1 - November 17, 2019 at the 

Pennsylvania Center for Photography

Entry Deadline September 25, 2019

Entry fees are non-refundable and exhibition specific (Print / Digital / Unlimited) so please be sure that you have selected the correct exhibition before submitting your payment.  

This option is for people who will display physical prints on the walls of the gallery, if selected by the judge(s). If you wish to have your photographs displayed on the hi-res display, rather than as prints, if selected by the judges, please use the Digital Exhibition option instead!  

Important!!! You will be asked for dimensions as part of the entry process and those dimensions must include the frame! We realize that listing exact dimensions may be difficult, but we cannot accept prints that are more than 20% larger than what you list initially. For example, an image entered as being a framed 11 x 14 print cannot become a 24 x 30 or it will be rejected when delivered. In no case will prints larger than the maximum framed size of 24 x 30 be accepted unless the size increase is de minimis (less than 1”) and pre-approved.

The Pennsylvania Center For Photography is pleased to announce the 4th Annual TRANSFORMATIONS, exhibition that pays tribute to the vision and skills of photographers who freely express their creativity by whatever means they choose. If you have been rejected from other shows or your work questioned because you use textures, composites, filters, or any of the other wonderful tools available to create your own vision, then you have found your home! Welcome to TRANSFORMATIONS!

Photographers working in all genres are invited to submit work for possible inclusion in the exhibition. The subject matter can be anything you want – literally! People, places, things, visions are all fine with us.

The only requirements are that the images must be two-dimensional and have started life in a camera. You can modify or create the physical environment, apply in-camera techniques, or use post processing to realize your own artistic reality. We are a very inclusive organization, so any degree of alteration from mild to extreme is welcome in our show.

The cost to enter is $25.00 for the first two images and $5.00 per additional image. You may enter both the Print and Digital Exhibitions but separate entry fees apply. 

By entering you are agreeing to the terms of the Prospectus which may be found at our website at http://www.pacenterforphotography.org/

The CALL TO ARTSTS for Yosemite Renaissance 35 in open! 

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.

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by nature and the American wilderness to display and promote their art. The exhibit opens at the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley, then travels to other art centers across California.

Awards

$5,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery.

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.

One of the goals of Yosemite Renaissance is to encourage innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.
