The Chateau Gallery (TCG) Call for Entry

Abandoned

  • | Start Date: 6/1/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Fee: $20.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: The Chateau Gallery (TCG)

Abandoned is an exhibition exploring abandoned and rediscovered objects, spaces, and structures. A popular genre in the photographic world is the trend of urban exploration ("urbex") — the exploration of abandoned or forgotten places to document the narrative of those who lived or worked there. Through the captured image, we can glimpse the ephemeral nature and memory of ourselves and our surroundings and preserve them before being lost to time and place. What do these structures and objects convey about society as we leave them to decay? What is the essence of time and place, and what-or whom-are we abandoning?

Abandoned is an international open call for photographers ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional images, traditional and non-conventional media, and conventional or alternative processes with a subjective analog or digital photographic base are welcome for submission.

‘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.’ - Elie 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, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Sierra Art Trails is eagerly anticipated by a loyal audience. Visitors are encouraged to explore our communities, meet the artists in person, and purchase works directly from them.

As an artist, there are many reasons to participate in this prestigious event. This 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.

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 worth the cost of participation. Networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post-show sales often result from showcasing your work during Sierra Art Trails.

Sierra Art Trails 2024 will take place over two weekends, Friday through Sunday, Oct. 4th - 6th and 11th – 13th.  Artists can elect to show any number of days, from only one to all six days of the event. Show dates for each artist are indicated in the exhibit catalog.

The cost to participate as an artist is only $150 USD, with just $25 due when applying and the $125 balance due upon acceptance. The exhibit prospectus is available on our website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/.

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. We do not accept mass-produced crafts, gift items, etc.

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 share their show sites with others. Our planning committee will work with artists who do not have access to a suitable show site to help them find a location to exhibit their work.

Please note that 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 10 am to 5 pm on the days they choose to exhibit.

If you have questions, please contact us by phone at (559) 658-8844, or email us at info@sierraarttrails.org.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Water ~ Sky | Curated By: Praxis Directors 2024

  • | Start Date: 5/19/2024 1:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme: Water ~ Sky | Curated By: Praxis Directors

Water, sky, and the liminal space between them are, by definition, poetic and symbolic. There exist infinite iterations of the qualities of water and sky: water may be fluid, frozen, rippling, reflective, tranquil, turbulent, crystal-clear, submerged, or flowing. The sky may be celestial, atmospheric, airy, cloud-covered, ethereal, canopied, or infinite. The colors of water and sky span the spectrum from warm to cool; reflective silver, dark indigo, cerulean, cyan, azure, to crimson and blazing gold. Black & white photography features the fundamental nature of water and sky by emphasizing their form, texture, and contrast while stripping away the elements of color.

​From ice to ether, oceans to puddles, starry nights to clouds reflected in glass—Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores the ideas of water and sky in their myriad forms. All genres, capture types, black & white, and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

  • | Host: Rocky Neck Art Colony

The Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC) invites artists to submit work for inclusion in What’s So Funny?  an open juried exhibition at the Cultural Center and online at RNACexhibitions.com.

Humor in art serves many purposes, as a light moment in dark times, as a commentary to illuminate or challenge, or simply as a small treat, a bit of candy.  It appears throughout art history in various periods and stylesin the mischievous work of Duchamp and Oldenburg; the dark satires of Goya and Grosz; the clever spotlight on everyday life of Breughel and Saul Steinberg; the biting expressionism of Robert Colescott; the laugh-out-loud body parts series of John Baldessari; and in the gentle, unpretentious self-portraits of Milton Avery.

RNAC is inviting artists to submit work (in all mediums)which embodies elements of humor. It may be reflected in the style, subject matter, mood, materials, method of execution or in whatever way the artist chooses.  The work will be judged on its capacity to provoke thought, introduce commentary, and, not least, to amuse! Let’s make ‘em think, giggle, guffaw, and blush!

Theme: The Found Object • Juror: W. Scott Olsen 2024

  • | Start Date: 5/1/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 6/2/2024 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: The Found Object • Juror: W. Scott Olsen

A "found object" is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, a fork, shopping carts, signs, doll heads, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… so long as the artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality stemming from its appearance, social or personal history.

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic art that investigates this idiom: exploring the subject of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility, or conversely, the representation of the object as a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

NYC4PA Call for Entry

NYC4PA PORTALS 2024

  • | Start Date: 2/25/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 5/19/2024 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: NYC4PA

Portals is one of our favorite themes.  It allows for so much creativity capturing things that are all around wherever we may be.  

 

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 half closed door, a wonderful windowsill or the view through an archway 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.  Note – Images awarded an NYC4PA prize within the past 2 years are not eligible. Images submitted that were not selected for a prize may be submitted at any time.

AN OPEN CALL FOR WORKS ON PAPER” 

A NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC JUNE 1 – JUNE 23, 2024

 

For many, the freedom and immediacy afforded by working on paper is instrumental to their practices, spawning new techniques and aesthetics, subjects and methods. Works On Paper encompasses a diverse range of media — from drawing, printmaking, painting, collage, and beyond. Far from being confined to studies and experiments, works on paper represent important modes of art-making in their own right. 

BWAC is seeking artists exploring the creative potential of working on paper. Works On Paper will showcase artists with an experimental spirit and exploration of the interaction between artist and paper in the process of creating art. No photography. Original and framed work only. 

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is an artist-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit. With 25,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space set in a Civil War-era warehouse on the waterfront of Red Hook Brooklyn. BWAC provides exhibition opportunities to artists of various levels of experience as well as professional development and public engagement. Explore membership opportunities at bwac.org

“Making portraits is more than a physical form, it’s a silent communication in understanding and respect between the photographer and the subject.  There’s an internal emotion and fire of the soul that you try to capture.   – Sandra”

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.”

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Cape Cod Art Center seeks submissions for "OUT OF PLACE 2024".  Artists of any level are invited to submit to this open juried online Digital Art exhibit.  

Any interpretation of the theme will be considered.  Cash prizes awarded for Best in Show, First Place, Second Place and Honorable Mention.

Submit your JPEG's by Sunday, April 28, 2024 by midnight.

Lorenka Campos will be judging the exhibit.  See our website for bio information. There is no personal feedback given by jurors.

What is digital art: The digital artist uses pixels rather than paint. Pixels can be captured from DSLs to mobile devices. The artist develops images on computers, mobile phones and tablets to express their creative vision. Many styles of editing are accessible to the artist including digital drawing, digital painting, digital collage with photographs or experimental abstract design or apps. Digital Art is progressive!

All work should be of the artist’s own creation.  Digital painting, digital collage and digital photographic work can use AI images as a component, but not solely as the created work.   Editing software or apps that use components which are not generated by the artist, use of components of an image that are potentially recognizable by the original artist, or any use of word generated AI must be disclosed despite ownership or copyright agreements.

All artwork must be created within the past three years. 

The jury may accept a maximum of two works from any one artist.  Payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.

Artist notification by email and posted on our website on May 10, 2024.  All those who submitted jpegs will be emailed.  If you do not receive an email by May 10th, contact manager@capecodartcenter.org.  Check your junk and promotion email folders. 

"OUT OF PLACE 2024" will be live on our website Friday, May 10, 2024. This exhibit will also be shown on a screen at Cape Cod Art Center.

The Beauty in Madness | Curators: Praxis Directors

Madness (mental illness) is something that frightens and fascinates us all. It is a word with which we are universally familiar yet haunts the human imagination. 

Through centuries, in poetry, prose, drama, and the visual arts, “madness" has been on display for all to see.

With devastating effect, mental illness can disturb our commonsense assumptions; create unbearable disruptions in the routine of daily living; and turn our experience and our expectations upside down. And yet, it is this upside-down world view that opens a universe of unique and inventive perspectives oblivious to those from free from disruptions of the mind. (think Vincent van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Frida Kahlo, Virginia Woolf and Edgar Allan Poe)

Praxis Gallery seeks work that explores ideas linked to mental health, be it conflict or humor, fiction or fact, or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation. We welcome photographic art that questions conventional assumptions about mental health or celebrates the unique perspective only visible to those who can see the "beauty in madness”. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

NYC4PA DECAY CORROSION RUST 2024

  • | Host: NYC4PA

DECAY, CORROSION, RUST...

“And behind door number 2 – a brand new…….”

US television prizes – all about the “new”.  Though we often focus on the new and shiny there is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted and it can make images of those items so much more compelling and interesting.

Consider the textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory or prison, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard.  Neighborhoods, disparagingly called "run down", are treasure troves of "decayed" tumble down houses, "corroded" discarded toys, "rusted" cars, trash cans and so on. 

 Decay, Corrosion, Rust.... can take many forms; black and white, color, abstract - all photographic media are welcome. 

As with all NYC4PA calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.  Note – Images awarded an NYC4PA prize within the past 2 years are not eligible. Images submitted that were not selected for a prize may be submitted at any time.

  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The fine art nude has been a celebrated 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 nude has been featured in a classical pose and setting, maturing to illustrating the human body as a sculptural abstraction, and with some pushing boundaries.

 Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations where legal are welcome.

Our juror for The Nude is Zoe Wiseman. Wiseman has been involved with photography as a model since 1974 and as a photographer since 2001. Zoe has a passion for fine art and portraiture. 

Zoe has been published in several magazines, movie soundtracks, newspapers and books as both model and photographer. Sometimes both modeling and photography in the same publication. Her photography and modeling work is collected worldwide. 

Since 1998 Wiseman has run websites promoting the art of photographers from all over the world. She has held yearly festivals since 2002 inviting models and photographers to gather for a week to immerse themselves in a nurturing atmosphere. They have traveled far and wide to attend, from Australia, Ireland, Germany, England and several states within the U.S.A. More may be read about these artist retreats at ZoeFest.photo

 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. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.

Theme: The Shape of Things | Juror:  Ross Anderson

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.​​​

Heritage Museum and historic park:  6455 Page St, Frisco TX

Freedom Meadow at Warren Park: 7599 Eldorado Pkwy, Frisco TX

Frisco Commons Park and the Grove at the Commons:  8000 McKinney Rd, Frisco TX

Main Juror: 

Maria Haag grew up between North Dakota and Kansas, and currently lives in Dallas, Texas. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas and her Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas. She received the Charles and Margaret Pollack art purchase award from the Mulvane Museum in Topeka, Kansas, and in 2017, 2018, and 2019 she participated in Dallas in Prizzi, a community inspired mural project in Prizzi, Sicily. She has participated in group shows at the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center, Project Gallery V in New York, Austin College in Sherman, TX, Art Center of the Bluegrass in Danville, KY, and Kansas City Artists Coalition, among others. Solo exhibitions include the Cora Stafford Gallery in Denton, TX, Arts Fort Worth in Fort Worth, TX, and Pencil on Paper Gallery in Dallas, TX. Every day, she feels caught in a cycle of destruction and transformation and translates that sensation into her work. She captures bodies hovering between decay and transformation, broken images whirling through a maelstrom of memory. The physical surfaces she creates mirror the transitions of physical and spiritual bodies. Their fragility is reflected in physically and digitally broken objects, crusted with layers of paint, charcoal, and collage.

Plein Air painting dates back to the French impressionists who left their studios to paint “in the open air.” Plein Air painting is exhilarating and challenging for artists who attempt to quickly capture the light and colors of the scene before them. The French term "plein air" means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pieces out of doors rather than in a studio.

 

There will be a welcome reception for artisits as well as a final reception open to the public during which wet paint competition art pieces will also be sold.  Awards presentation for the overall three-day artwork and for wet paint competition will take place during the final reception on 4/27.

This award not only honors the achievements of those who blend AI with photography but also plays a crucial role in shaping the future of art, where technology and tradition coexist harmoniously.


Exhibition and Display: Winners and selected artworks will be showcased in FotoNostrum and potentially other venues or online galleries, emphasizing the blend of human and AI creativity.

Recognition and Awards: Winners in each category (photography, illustration, and digital painting) receive a $500 cash prize, with recognition given for effectively merging human creativity with AI enhancement.

JUROR - JODY MILLER

NVAL is pleased to have Jody Miller as our juror this year.

In her own words:

I have been a photographer for most of my life. I've been making images since I was nine years old, but my real education started in 1982 when I attended the Ansel Adams workshop in Carmel, California. I've been making fine art images non-stop since then.

I spent 40 years as a designer / animator for the television industry in Hollywood, so my profession melded beautifully with my favorite pastime. I now live in Astoria, Oregon, and love the ever-changing light that makes this area so magical.

My body of work has been evolving for over 40 years and has come to fruition in this portfolio of images I share on my webpage - https://www.jodymillerphoto.com/.  I am represented by LightBox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.

Please see the PROSPECTUS for more information.

Regional Show Framing Program -- $15 to rent one of NVAL's frames and have NVAL frame your work.  DETAILS HERE or go to NVAL.org, select Shows/Photography/Regional and click on the Framing Program link.

AN OPEN CALL FOR “FINE GRIT”

A NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC APRIL 13 – MAY 12, 2024

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 3/13

 

“What you make from a tree should be at least as miraculous as what you cut down.”

Richard Powers, The Overstory

 

Fine Grit: Art & Ideas in Wood

Fine Grit is an exhibition of contemporary artists who use wood as a primary material in their work. From traditional techniques such as hand carved sculpture, woodcuts and pyrography to more recent technologies such as laser engraving and 3D printing, artists have long used wood as a source material and medium. Wood comes directly from nature and each piece has its own unique lifecycle, evident in the processes artists and other makers utilize while working with it. 

 

Fine Grit will feature artists who make work out of wood using a variety of different techniques, methods, aesthetics and scale. Particular interest will be given to artists who consider the origin of their materials and who use wood as subject matter, addressing topics such as forestry, ecology, architecture, human consumption and the changing climate.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is an artist-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit. With 25,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space set in a Civil War-era warehouse on the waterfront of Red Hook Brooklyn. The wood beams original to this 1860s historic structure supports not only the gallery walls but artworks on view.

The show will be curated by Alicia Degener, artist and President of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition. BWAC provides exhibition opportunities to artists of various levels of experience as well as professional development and public engagement. Explore membership opportunities at bwac.org

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Diptych ~ Open Theme

  • | Start Date: 2/1/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 2/29/2024 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $40.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

THEME: Diptych ~ Open Theme | JUROR: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

A photographic diptych is a work of art that consists of two photographs that are arranged side by side. Diptychs can convey a story by connecting seemingly unrelated images. The use of two photographs side by side can allow the photographer to experiment with different compositions and to create a sense of balance or symmetry. The two images in a diptych can represent duality or opposites. They allow the photographer to explore different themes, narratives, compositions, and contrasts.

 

Praxis seeks photographic art that explores these concepts. If you haven’t created a diptych this is a great opportunity to experiment with this idea by juxtaposing two images side by side. The submission guidelines for Praxis specify that the diptych must be printable on one sheet of paper and fit into preselected matte sizes. See guidelines. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

 

Entry Deadline | February 29, 2024

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?

We’re looking for flora, all types from a single stem to a vast landscape, still life, formal gardens, or vegetation gone wild. Color or monochrome, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for Flora is Wendi Schneider. 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) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: The Life of Color | Curators: Praxis Directors 2024

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

THEME: The Life of Color | CURATORS: Praxis Directors

Color is a dynamic dimension, defined by its three unique components: Hue, Value, and Saturation. These elements serve as the fundamental building blocks in the poetic and symbolic realm of color within creative photography. It's more than a spectacle; it's a psychological journey. Colors evoke moods, thoughts, and concepts with their mere presence, tapping into psychology, biology, and culture.

While black and white photography has its own artistic merits and has been historically significant, color photography is widely embraced for its ability to convey a broad range of information and emotional nuances.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the implications of color as a central device in the creation of compelling photographic art. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. 

Entry deadline: Mon, Feb 18, 2024, 11:59PM CST

Notice of acceptance: Tues, Feb 23, 2024, 4PM CST

Exhibition dates: Mar, 16 – April 13, 2024

Colors  of the Commonplace

The word “commonplace” suggests things we see without really noticing them.     Some synonyms are vanilla, customary, every day, mundane, with examples like doors, buildings, benches, cars, teacups, glasses that you come across everyday while out walking, on the train, in the car, at the supermarket, or even in your own house. The challenge for this call is in creating images where the “Color of the Commonplace” creates an image with impact and makes it pop.

Show us how you choose to meet this challenge. As with all NYC4PA calls for entry all 2d photographs are welcome.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Black & White | Juror: Elizabeth Flinsch

  • | Start Date: 1/1/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 2/1/2024 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $40.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme: Black & White | Juror: Elizabeth Flinsch

More than half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination. Utilizing tone, contrast, texture and shape, monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the most essential visual elements; revealing a sense of soul, substance and meaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism and cultural associations of color imagery.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black and white & monochromatic photography an enduring, contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.  

JUROR | Elizabeth Flinsch

Elizabeth Flinsch is a photography educator, curator, and the editor of SHOTS Magazine. She earned her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a focus on Studio Art and Photography. SHOTS Magazine, based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is an independent print journal of black and white photography founded in 1986. Elizabeth curates submissions, interviews featured artists, and designs the magazine from cover to cover. Her own artistic roots in traditional printmaking manifest in her affinity for alternative photographic processes. Elizabeth is deeply committed to her vision for the photography landscape as a more equitable realm for women identified, queer, and BIPOC artists.

Use of Digital Tools Coos Art Museum Digital Art-Making Policy for Juried Exhibitions

Introduction: Coos Art Museum (CAM) recognizes the evolving nature of artmaking and the integration of digital tools into the creative process. As part of our commitment to embracing innovation while maintaining the integrity of our juried exhibitions, CAM has developed this policy to address the use of digital tools in artmaking.

Policy Statement:

1. Eligibility: Artists are encouraged to submit artworks that incorporate digital tools as part of their creative process. Artists must adhere to the guidelines outlined in this policy to ensure their eligibility for CAM juried exhibitions.

2. Definition of Digital Tools: Digital tools include, but are not limited to, software applications, digital tablets, computer-generated graphics, digital photography, 3D printing, and any other technology-based tools used in the creation of artwork.

3. Acceptable Use of Digital Tools: Artworks created with digital tools are welcome in CAM juried exhibitions, provided that the artist demonstrates creative intent, originality, and artistic craftsmanship. Artists should clearly describe their use of digital tools in their submission materials to help the jury understand the artistic process. Artworks must primarily consist of the artist's original content, and the use of digital tools should enhance rather than replace the artist's creative input. Artificial Intelligence software or A.I. tools imbedded in Photoshop or other digital media are not allowed to be used for artwork competing for prizes in juried exhibitions. Any pieces using such tools are required to include A.I. visual art software or tools in process descriptions. They may be eligible to be juried into an exhibition, but they cannot be considered for prizes.

4. Prohibited Artwork Types: Reproductions and giclées of original artworks are not eligible for CAM juried exhibitions. Artworks that solely consist of digitally altered or manipulated stock images or commercial graphics without significant (approximately 70%) original creative input will not be accepted

 5. Submission Guidelines: Artists must accurately represent their artwork and its creation process in their submission materials. Artists should provide a detailed description of how digital tools were used in the creation of their artwork. Artists must confirm that their submitted artwork is an original creation or part of a limited edition, and they retain the rights to reproduce it for exhibition purposes.

6. Jury Selection: All submitted artworks will be evaluated by CAM's jury based on artistic merit, creativity, and adherence to the guidelines outlined in this policy. The jury may consider the integration of digital tools as part of the artistic process when making selection decisions.

7. Notification and Display: Artists whose work is selected for CAM juried exhibitions will be notified according to the museum's standard procedures. Accepted artworks using digital tools will be displayed in the exhibition alongside traditional art forms. Artwork media for exhibition labels must include the digital tools used in the creation process. Example terms include, but are not limited to, inkjet and oil, monoprint and acrylic, digital print with hand embellishment.

8. Compliance and Enforcement: CAM reserves the right to disqualify any artwork that does not comply with the guidelines outlined in this policy. In the event of a dispute or uncertainty regarding the eligibility of a digital artwork or an artwork using digital tools in its creation, CAM's exhibition committee will make the final decision

 9. Policy Revision: CAM may periodically review and update this policy to reflect changes in artistic practices and technological advancements. Conclusion: Coos Art Museum recognizes the value of incorporating digital tools into the artmaking process and encourages artists to explore these creative avenues. This policy aims to provide clarity and fairness in evaluating artworks that use digital tools while upholding the integrity of CAM's juried exhibitions. Artists are encouraged to reach out to CAM for any clarifications or inquiries regarding this policy

Yosemite Renaissance 39 - Call to Artists

The Call to Artists for Yosemite Renaissance 39 is OPEN. One More Chance to apply! Final 3 day extension!

The Call to Artists for Yosemite Renaissance 39 has been extended to Wednesday, January 17th, 2024.

Celebrate Yosemite and the California Sierra. Share your Vision! 

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, promote and sell their art. The exhibit opens at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in Oakhurst, CA, then travels on to other venues in California.

Awards

$4,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in March 2023.

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.

The definition of architecture is the art or science of building, often with a focus on habitable structures.  We are familiar with architects like Gehry, Wright, and Gaudi as well as famous buildings like the Empire State Building in New York and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. But are habitable structures a requirement? Actually, it can be much broader than that. For instance, the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids in Egypt, interiors of cathedrals or the main hall at New York's Grand Central Station are all examples of world-famous architecture. In addition, examples of architecture do not have to be world famous.  Private houses, bridges etc. are all examples 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.

Cape Cod Art Center seeks submissions for “WABI-SABI 2024".  Photographers of any level are invited to submit to this open juried online photography exhibit.  

Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfections of nature and of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay. As artists we often seek items that are "perfect", with no blemishes or defects. Wabi Sabi teaches us to find beauty in everyday life, to revere things that are imperfect, impermanent, and/or incomplete, to embrace crows feet, rust, and frayed edges, and "to celebrate the cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind.”

Any interpretation of the theme will be considered.  Cash prizes awarded for Best in Show, First Place, Second Place and Honorable Mention.

Submit your JPEG's by Sunday, July 14, 2024 by midnight.

Lisa Cuchara will be judging this exhibit.  There is no personal feedback given  by juror.  

Photographs used must be the artist's own.  Photo editing apps and programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom may be used to enhance original photographs.  Digital scans, stock, image downloads or word generated AI images may not be used. 

All artwork must be created within the past three years. 

The jury may accept a maximum of two works from any one artist.  Payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.

Artist notification by email and posted on our website on July 26, 2024.  All those who submitted jpegs will be emailed.  If you do not receive an email by July 26th, contact manager@capecodartcenter.org.  Check your junk and promotion email folders. 

"WABI-SABI 2024" will be live on our website Friday, July 26, 2024.  This exhibit will also be shown on a screen at Cape Cod Art Center.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Motion < Blur • Curated by: Praxis Directors 2024

  • | Start Date: 6/17/2024 12:00:00 PM (PT)
  • | End Date: 7/15/2024 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

In most cases, photography is used to “freeze time,” with a still image. Motion in photography creates a paradox: the image is a frozen moment in time but what is captured is an object that is a blur of motion – an apparent streaking, bending, distorting and /or movement of light and objects in the foreground or background of the image frame. Blur can demonstrate the velocity of movement. It can convey the emotional dimensions of the subject photographed, presenting dream-like qualities by invoking the surreal and transitory nature of time passing. Meteors streak across the sky, ghostly figures move through a room, the artist paints shapes with a light source. These are some examples of how blur represents motion in time-lapse photography.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that demonstrates the fundamental qualities that make motion & blur a compelling element of contemporary photography. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
