Theme:  The Portrait | Juror: Sandra Chen Weinstein

“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.

A call to artists for submissions: They/He/She

This is a dark time for the LGBTQIA+ community. Lawmakers across the country are trying to write us out of existence. But we know we’ve always been here and we always will be here. We also know that what we do in dark times is we organize, we care for each other, and we make art. Subway posters, ball culture, underground theater, and countless paintings and sculptures snuck into the art world’s strongest bastions behind their backs and under their noses have been our lifeline and our way through dark times like these.

This pride month, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) presents our first exhibition dedicated to queer and trans artists from across the country. All members of the LGBTQIA+ community are invited to participate.

 

The artist will retain 70% of any sale of their work. The other 30% will be donated to the Ali Forney Center. The mission of the Ali Forney Center is to protect homeless Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to be independent.

The BWAC galleries live on two floors of a massive Civil War‐era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY.

  • All artwork in any medium is welcome
  • Artwork must be framed and ready to hang.
  • This is NOT an auction. Price must be at least $100 minimum or more for this fundraiser.
  • All pieces must be labeled on the back side with artist name and title of the piece.
  • Selected artwork will be posted on Artsy, so give us your best images, please!

Fee for submissions is $35 for up to 5 artworks. Deadline for submissions is midnight on May 29. Acceptance into the show is subject to the curator and notification will be sent out on June 1.

Accepted artwork must be hand delivered on Friday, June 10, Saturday, June 11, or Sunday, June 12 or shipped to arrive during the period of Wednesday, June 8, Thursday, June 9, or Friday, June 10 ONLY.

1. Click on the Sign Up Now! link. Follow the directions on the Site Login Page to create a new profile. Your username is your email address. If you applied to BWAC’s shows or to another competition that licensed the Smarter Entry system after August 27, 2012, you can just login.

2. Click on They/He/She to register. (It’s under the heading AVAILABLE SHOWS). You will be taken to a secure site where you can pay your application fee.

Urban, Suburban, and Rural: These are life choices, whether for living or visiting.  What about these locales caught your eye?   Was it the skyline, parked cars, or lights of the theater in the Urban Landscape? Alternatively, did you capture the bar-b-q in a Suburban backyard. Maybe it was the geometry of a street of well-groomed front yards, a strip mall or other image representative of the Suburban Scene.  And finally were you caught up in the imagery of Rural Impressions - the hills, the dales, the cows, the horses, the white farm fences, or rusted cars on front lawns.

 

Send us your interpretations of Rural Impressions, Suburban Scenes and Urban Landscapes. Lots to see, lots to photograph.

We are excited to share 19 years of experience with our artists, patrons and supporters!  

The Sierra Art Trails Open Studio Tour has 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 apply 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.

Two weekends!  Friday through Sunday, Sept. 30th – Oct. 2nd and Oct.  7th - 9th

2021 was our first year hosting the show over two weekends. The change was well received, offering more flexibility for artists and visitors.  Artists can elect to show any number of days. From only one to all six days of the event.  Show dates for each artist will be indicated in the exhibit catalog.

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

The exhibit prospectus 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 - 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 10am to 5pm on the days they choose to exhibit.  

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

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.

The Chateau Gallery Call for Entry

Chiaroscuro

  • | Start Date: 5/15/2022 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: The Chateau Gallery

Darkness, shadow, and space have the power to communicate as much as light and color, but we can often overlook them in our exploration of the captured image. The essence of a photograph and other figurative artworks is a harmony of brightness, contrast, highlights, and shadows. What can the mind's eye see outside the realm of luminosity and perceive in its absence? What is made evident or alluded to by being concealed? Chiaroscuro is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

To honor this milestone, we are sponsoring a Tenth Anniversary, no theme, Call for Entry. It will include, in addition to our regular prizes, a live exhibition of the cash prize winning and juror’s selection images.  For this show the size of framed images will be limited to 11x14 (or 14x11).
