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

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.

From ancient myth to a cop on the beat, the definition of “hero” has grown and changed across time and cultures.  Heroes Real & Imagined is an all-media juried exhibition open to artists living in California. This show, which will be featured in our Lobby Galleries, asks artists to think above and beyond the comic book definition of “hero.”  Why do some people, or the ideals they represent, become heroes to us as individuals and as communities? 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.

Awards

Best of Show $300                    

Two Awards of Merit $100                    

Four Honorable Mentions $50

SECONDARY COLORS:  Orange, Purple, Green

Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises

A garden of purple is always in bloom!

NYC4PA "Primary Colors" calls for entry have been some of our favorite contests. Though red, yellow and blue are, in fact, primary colors but they not the not the only important hues out there for the color photographer. 

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.

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/

Cultural Center of Cape Cod Call for Entry

MUTUAL MUSES: A MARRIAGE OF VISUAL AND LITERARY ART

  • | Start Date: 8/2/2019 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 9/30/2019 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $20.00 USD per 1
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Cultural Center of Cape Cod

THE EXHIBIT
Mutual Muses is an annual exhibit that features the work of up to 50 visual artists (paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, fiber, jewelry, glass, metal, and other media) and up to 50 poets from across Cape Cod.

The Process
Each of the "muses" submits a work to provide inspiration for another participant—the visual artists submit an image, the poets a poem—and also receives a piece that will inspire a new work. Several months later, the original "inspiration" works and the subsequent "response" works are exhibited side by side. Mutual Muses will therefore include two works by each participant. The pairings are completely random. Participants receive their “inspiration” pieces in person at a pot luck dinner or, if they cannot attend, by email or mail. The exhibit consumes all four galleries in the Cultural Center's main building.

Mutual Muses is celebrated with a major reception and poetry reading, one of the most well-attended events held at the Cultural Center all year.

 

The exhibit is an extraordinarily powerful reflection of the Cape's cultural community and its impact on the character of the region, its quality of life, and its ability to educate, inspire, and inform.

SUBMISSIONS
For the first eleven years of Mutual Muses, artists and poets were included by invitation only.

In 2020, the selection process will begin with an open call for submissions, followed by rigorous jurying to result in an exhibit of high-quality work by both established and emerging artists/poets.

Artists must submit through Smarter Entry, an online application and jurying system. (In extreme cases, an artist may be permitted to submit an image by email and payment by credit card or check. Contact Lauren Wolk at lwolk@cultural-center.org for permission.)

Poets should submit their work with submission fee by usps or by hand.

SUBMISSION FEES
Artists: $20 for the first piece, $5 for each additional piece, no limit on number of submissions.

Poets: $10 for the first poem, $5 for each additional poem. No more than three poems will be considered.

Payment is not refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.

 

RULES
Any entries that do not conform to the guidelines will not be considered.

Artists: Any media is acceptable. Work must be original to the artist. No prints (except in the case of printmaking and photography.) Although there are no size limitations, work larger than 36” wide should be of exceptional merit. There will be a 20% commission on work sold.

Poets: Each submission should consist of a poem of no more than 30 lines, including stanza breaks (not including title or name), submitted by USPS or by hand with payment. A cover sheet should have the name of the poet, all contact information (phone, email, address), and the title of the poem(s) submitted. The poet’s name should not be on the poetry itself. Checks should be made payable to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. Payment may also be made by credit card, in person or by phone, or in cash.

Work that has been exhibited previously at the Cultural Center will not be considered.
 

IMPORTANT DATES
Deadline for initial submissions: September 30, 2019 (postmark, for poets)

Notification of Acceptance: October 28, 2019

Pot Luck Dinner: December 17, 2019 (to be confirmed)

Exhibit opens: March 25, 2020

Reception and Poetry Reading: March 27, 2020, from 5-8pm

Exhibit closes: April 19, 2020

SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Portrait

  • | Start Date: 8/7/2019 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 10/6/2019 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

A portrait sounds like a relatively straightforward thing — a picture of someone — but across time it has proven to be much more elusive. For any rule you might devise to define a portrait, there is always a bona fide portrait that defies that rule. At a certain point, portraiture seems to be less of a genre than a blurry constellation of suggested guidelines, or even just something you have to see to recognize. That's when it's time to stop theorizing and start looking for the best in contemporary portraiture.

Our juror for the The Portrait is Doug Beasley. Douglas Beasley’s personal vision explores the spiritual aspects of people and place and is concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life.

As founder and director of Vision Quest Photo Workshops, he teaches workshops that emphasize personal expression and creative vision over the mechanics of camera use. His workshops are held at art and photo centers around the world, as well as mentorships and private workshops held at the Trade River Retreat Center, his cabin in Northwest Wisconsin.

Along the way, Doug has become more involved in curating exhibits and promoting the work of other photographers. He is in awe of all the good work being produced. This led him to acquiring Shots Magazine to continue to promote great and unusual photography that often doesn't get seen in mainstream publications.


Mpls Photo Center Call for Entry

FRIENDSHIP: F-Stop Group 2019 Exhibit

  • | Start Date: 7/31/2019 12:00:00 PM (PT)
  • | End Date: 10/6/2019 11:59:00 PM (PT)

  • | Host: Mpls Photo Center

We are living in a precarious time. In our lives we have all been through defining moments in our collective history. People of my age remember assassinations and social upheaval, dealing with race, equality, war, recession. No matter what our political beliefs are we are confronted daily with polarizing points of view. 


This is a time when we seem to need the comfort and recognition of our family and friends. It's our friends, the family we choose, that are the core group of our well being.
I have been struck by the importance of friendships in our lives especially now. They, (friendships), have so much meaning, providing time for us to dialogue with each other and find peace of mind.


So I am proposing that we take time to try and use photographs to present this idea of friendship in our group FStop exhibition. I have no preconceived idea of how the photographs we make should look, what the subjects are. I really don't want to say alot more so that I don't make suggestions that are leading. I will say the portrait is a strong tool in photography but the subjects are wide open.


 I have made a photograph in the last year that I am thinking about but I am making new ones that are compelling to me.
Sally and I and Jeff look forward to seeing you all. Have a great rest of the  summer.

Sincerely,


Tom and Sally

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.
