CALL FOR ART AND STORIES

When I was young, I spent a summer reading I, Robot by Issac Asimov and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. Those two books formed the foundation of my fascination with the Science Fiction genre and with those wonderfully diverse creatures we call robots. Through the years, I've enjoyed the myriad of depictions of robots in books, art, and entertainment. So, when the ArtOrder team sat down to discuss our next themed book - it was no surprise that I pushed heavily for a robot theme.

I want When Robots Dream to be the ultimate collection of robotic art and stories. I'm looking for images and stories that get out of the normal clichés and offer the fans something unique and interesting.

Juror:Paulien Lethen

Dutch artist and gallery owner, Paulien Lethen, opened Holland Tunnel Art Newburgh/Gallery and Studios in May of 2018, shortly after she became a resident of Newburgh. Recognizing a lively local art community, she sets out to create a new place for exhibitions, performances, concerts, movie screenings and artist studios. Her goal is to create a cultural venue and art center where art and people can get together. In Newburgh, Lethen feels the same exciting artistic energy of Williamsburg, where she first established Holland Tunnel Gallery in 1997. The Brooklyn gallery gained recognition in the international art world and became a neighborhood icon as a microcosm of local and international talent. It enjoyed a successful run until 2007. Holland Tunnel Gallery Paros, on the island of Paros, Greece opened in 2000 and is still an elegant space for summer concerts, poetry readings, artist talks, and art classes.

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.

SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Portrait '20

  • | Start Date: 7/6/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The Portrait. We use portraits as objects of remembrance and reverence, of seduction and glorification. From the keepsakes in lockets as tiny remembrances of love, to the likenesses of leaders meant to inspire and seduce with their power. They can stir, and confront, and drive us to action. Just as they can lull in longing for a time since passed. They act as a mirror in whose reflection we find the inward experiences of ourselves, or as a window from which we look out toward the virtues of another.

Give us pause in our present time of turmoil and uncertainty, by showing us the likenesses of those that inspire and fill you with hope. 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 are welcome.

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.

Pennsylvania Center For Photography Call for Entry

TRANSFORMATIONS 2020

  • | Start Date: 7/15/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 10/2/2020 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 2
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Pennsylvania Center For Photography

The TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition, one of the largest shows anywhere dedicated to the transformative vision and skills of photographers who freely express their creativity by whatever means they choose, is back for its 5th year! Things are a bit different this year (what isn’t) and this year’s show will be all digital and will be presented on-line, but the principle is the same…

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!

To make things more exciting this year, we have revised the categories, made the awards higher, and are setting up a system so that you and your fellow entrants will select the award winners. No more moaning about the judges :) and you’ll get a chance to see just how hard it is to select the best from so many great entries!

There are two categories, which will be described below:

The Transformative Category – This is the general category that most people are likely to enter. The only requirement is that the images must have started life in your camera. You can modify or create the physical environment, apply in-camera techniques, shoot infrared, use composites, and/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. However, if the visual success of the image is clearly dependent on distinct image elements from someone else’s photography or art, or if more than 50% of the image is based on someone else’s photography or art, please use the Derivative Category.

The Derivative Category – This replaces the former Unlimited Exhibition and is a special purpose category to recognize the outstanding works that include or are entirely composed of major copyrightable elements of an original, previously created first work. Two things are important… 1.) You may not violate someone else’s copyright – if you are doing derivative work, we assume you are aware of the legalities involved; 2.) The work must be photographically based. For example, a picture of the Mona Lisa with a beard drawn on it or photo realistic art drawn on a computer will not be considered.

The two categories will be judged separately and separate prizes will be awarded for each.

We’re looking forward to seeing the great work created in these strange times and putting on the best TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition yet!

Awards

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

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, 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.

Sierra Art Trails 2020 has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Call to Artists for the 18th annual Sierra Art Trails will begin Feb 1st, 2021.  

We are excited to share 18 years of experience with our artists, patrons and supporters!  

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

The Exhibit Prosepectus 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 - Artists must be present at their sites both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Friday is an optional day for participating artists. 

Since our first exhibit in 2003, Sierra Art Trails has built 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 consider applying 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.

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