In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually.

‘An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable subjects in the actual world. Some people even say it departs from true meaning, existence, and reality itself. It stands apart from the concrete whole with its purpose instead depending on conceptual meaning and intrinsic form.' John Suler.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the world through an abstracted lens; utilizing elements of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and line to express meaning outside of traditional representational and documentary styles of photography. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Welcome to Sierra Art Trails 2018, our 16th annual Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour. 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 area encompassed by the event 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, B&Bs, and other businesses throughout the area.

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. 

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.  

Sierra Art Trails has a dedicated audience excited to attend year after year. In addition to visiting with the artists and purchasing works 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.

Art history is filled with images of HUMANS that have changed our lives and changed our minds. Painting, sculpture, works on paper and now photography have engaged us in our own reflection. Photography, the most accessible medium, shows us our humanity through traditional portraiture, street photography, families, events and maybe even selfies. This is not about equipment, it is about ideas and vision. We consider our various manifestations as we see through the lens of others. Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier Bresson, Vivian Meier - all have a unique vision of who we are. HUMANS is a call for entry for YOUR vision of who we are. Images must have people in them photographed alone, as couples or in groups. Images can be spontaneous or structured, in the street, at sporting events or celebrations.

BWAC Call for Entry

Material Matters: Breaking with Tradition

  • | Start Date: 4/20/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 6/14/2018 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: BWAC

As an expression of culture, art is often unconventional and rebellious; experimental and insightful. Yet, art by necessity relies upon familiar traditions to achieve its unconventional ends. This is why the better we know our traditions, the more cleverly we can break them.

The annual exhibition, Material Matters, asks artists who work in a variety of traditional materials -- clay, glass, wood, metal or fiber/textile -- to consider the traditions underpinning their work and the rules and conventions they break in method or material. Artists are invited to submit original works that change traditional "ways of seeing" by demonstrating a break with the past or suggesting a new way forward, whether toward logical or illogical conclusions.

 

Melissa Stern is an artist and journalist. Her drawing and sculpture have been exhibited in museums, galleries, private and corporate collections throughout the world.  Stern uses a wide range of materials including encaustic, clay, pastel, and steel. Her sculptural work includes found objects, souvenirs, vintage magazines and books as well as fabricated images and sculpture. Her art reviews and cultural commentary have been featured in Hyperallergic, a Brooklyn-based digital arts publication, and she serves as Art Editor for Posit, a journal of literature and art.

 

$450 in cash awards, including $250 GOLD prize.
