Yosemite Renaissance 35 - Call to Artists
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.
$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.
One of the goals of Yosemite Renaissance is to encourage innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.
Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed. The past continues to live in these forsaken, ruined, or empty spaces and we ask— Who were the people who lived and worked here? What were their lives like? What were their stories? What happened to them in these spaces?
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the visual and social significance of abandoned space - where derelict factories, churches, private houses or other empty places serve as the basis for creative investigation. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission
Juror | Lance Keimig
Lance has been photographing abandoned space, architecture and night for nearly 30 years. He has taught night photography and light painting since 1998 at venues including the New England School of Photography, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Houston Center for Photography, Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco, and the School of Visual Art in New York. He has published numerous books. He teaches workshops around the country and leads night photography tours to places like Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, and Cuba. Keimig lectures at the Photo Plus Expo in New York, and was a featured speaker and workshop instructor at Estudio Brasil in Saõ Paulo, Brazil.
The San Francisco Women Artists (SFWA) organization, located in the City’s Inner Sunset neighborhood, is pleased to announce this Open Competition for our January show. Bay Area artists (men and women) are invited to submit 2D artworks of any medium except video for this juried competition. Maximum width for any piece is 50" INCLUDING FRAME, unless prior permission from gallery has been obtained.
The theme for this exhibit is "2020 - A Leap Year" – An “extra day” for living and creating. A time to take that “leap of faith” and create the piece that has been waiting to emerge, that idea or image rippling below the surface. If not now, when?
Please carefully read the Call for Entries for complete details.

The Open Call is just that, an open theme - all subjects, The SE Center is looking for images of any theme, media, digital, analog, or antique processes that show your best work.
Our Juror for Open Call is Susan Burnstine. Susan Burnstine is an award winning fine art photographer originally from Chicago, now based in Los Angeles. Represented by galleries around the World and widely published across the globe, she also conducts workshops internationally and has written for numerous photography publications, including a monthly column for Black and White Photography Magazine (UK).
35-40 selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month.
When one "spells something out in black and white" what does that mean? Can a color photograph communicate that concept of “no ambiguity”? When we see things in black and white can a color photograph describe a state of mind that won’t be changed? For sure, but so can a black & white image.
"White & Black" are also thought of as opposites. In physics, black and white are not colors because they do not have specific wavelengths. Instead, white light contains all wavelengths of visible light. Black, on the other hand, is the absence of visible light.
In chess what is the meaning of the black and white playing pieces? I’ve heard it said the white piece indicates who plays first. And what of the hero and villain of U.S. Western genre film of the 1920 -1940’s. Are there other parallels you can make?
Above are just a few thoughts to start the thinking process towards unique answers to the "Black & White" call. Photographers see the world in original and fluid ways. We know your answers to the call will not disappoint.
So what really is black and white and [red] all over? I hope to find out in this juried call.
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. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.
Photographs will be judged in six categories: Landscape, Nature, In Motion, Close Up/Macro, The Art of Humankind and Man Made. Definitions of these categories and examples of each are available on the InFocus website at http://www.infocus-tcaa.org/categories.html. Each category may have both color and monochrome images. These categories may overlap. It will be your choice to pick the category you wish your image to be entered in. The InFocus Committee reserves the right to change the category of your entry if they deem it necessary. Submissions of original works of photographic art may include but are not limited to classic film and digital photography.
Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded in each category: $150 for First Place, $75 for Second Place and $50 for Third Place. Additional ribbons will be awarded for Honorable Mention and Judge’s Choice. The Best of Show will receive $250 and a ribbon. The Charles Moore Excellence in Photography Award* winner will receive $250, a ribbon and a trophy. Recipients of Sponsor Awards will receive $25 and a ribbon. Two People’s Choice awards will be presented at the end of the show to the photographs receiving (1) the most votes by the student visitors and (2) all other visitors.
