To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting… It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

- Elliott Erwitt -

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

Our juror for Masks is Andrew Fedynak, a photographer, photobook publisher, and educator based out of Richmond, Virginia. Formally of Asheville, North Carolina, his projects are often centered on his personal views regarding the practice of Zen.

Fedynak created Zatara Press in 2014 to publish uniquely designed and collaboratively crafted “Artist’s Styled Photobooks” centered around the aesthetic design principles of Wabi Sabi.

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.

3 photographs for $10. This is a Celebration, not a Competition. At least 1 picture by each photographer will be printed and exhibited at MPC. Please include your Kid's first name and age (in the photo) in the DATAFILE. Best of Show $300

KIDS. We were all a kid once. And we are all SOMEBODY's kid. Child. Offspring. Progeny. Hope for the future! And its doubtful we "sprung from loins"!   Its alot more work than that. Especially the first 18 years. KIDS. They're precious, and profound, no matter their outcome. They become adults, but are still somebody's kid. I sat on the couch the other day as my 82 year old Mom taught me to play WORDLE at age 62. Was I still her kid? You bet! I felt like a 6-year-old again, and that was really nice. 

Our modern kids have faced alot lately. A pandemic. Disruption of a normal school setting. The downside of social media. And yes, apparent danger in their formally safe places. Is it tougher to be a kid these days? I don't see many walking barefoot to school anymore. They're mostly not plowing fields behind mules, or digging coal mines.  But modern challenges abound.

Let's see your kid. Playing, learning, loving, doing sports, or just being a kid. Looking for all ages: newborns to retirees. If its YOUR kid, its a kid.

This Call for Entry is not a competition, but rather a celebration of our precious kids. There will be no losers. The Mpls Photo Center will select, print, and exhibit at least 1 photograph from every photographer who enters.

Let's celebrate and revel in our children.

My KID.

(This Call for Entry will be the first exhibit on display at the Mpls Photo Center's new facility on the 1st Floor of the Van Buren building in NE Minneapolis (featuring a new studio and darkroom post-Covid), in the heart of the NE Minneapolis Arts District next to the Northrup King studio complex. Come celebrate with us Friday July 15 and enjoy your photograph!

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.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Liquid ~ Sky 2022

  • | Start Date: 6/16/2022 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 7/18/2022 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: Liquid ~ Sky | Curated By: Praxis Directors

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, airplanes, and rockets that push skyward.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The Chateau Gallery Call for Entry

Degenerate

  • | Start Date: 6/15/2022 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 8/15/2022 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: The Chateau Gallery

In 1937, The Degenerate Art exhibition (Die Ausstellung "Entartete Kunst") was conceived and held in Nazi Germany, where party propagandists portrayed, mocked, and vilified the works of renowned modern artists as evidence of criminality and deviance. Nevertheless, the event was more popular with spectators than the accompanying state-sponsored exhibition intended to display the more classical type of art advocated by the regime. In the contemporary context, one could suspect a passionate photographer possesses the means, motive, and opportunity to capture the debaucherous image. What is your interpretation of "degenerate," and how does your work oppose the blasé mainstream narrative preferred by the state and status quo? All black and white, color, conventional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

SHOW DESCRIPTION - “This is Surreal” - Surrealism was a cultural movement which developed in Europe in the aftermath of World War I and was largely influenced by Dada.  The movement is best known for its visual artworks and the juxtaposition of distant realities to activate the unconscious mind through the imagery.

RED, YELLOW, and BLUE balloons were the trademark of Wonder Bread for 1950s TV kids. They are also the three basic paint colors an artist needs.  Although mixed together you can create a world of color, each stands out on its own as an important visual element.

 

This competition is about images in which one of these colors is a critical component.  You will submit each image into one of the categories RED, BLUE or YELLOW. Possibilities include - black and white photographs with a single point of color, a red, yellow or blue monochrome, essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition. Is the blue sky a main element of your image, a red ball or maybe a funky pair of yellow sunglasses? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red?  Be creative and send us your best!
