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

Theme | The Found Object

  • | Start Date: 10/1/2019 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

A "found object" is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, a fork, shopping carts, old photographs, signs, doll heads, industrial machinery, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… as long asthe artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality - stemming from its appearance, social or personal history.

Praxis gallery seeks photographic art that explores this idiom. Submissions may be a study of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility. Conversely, the representation of the object may be a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

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.

Rules
·      Accepted art must be the same as submitted online.
·      Show administrators reserve the right to reject a photograph when delivered to the show site if the photograph does not appear to be the same as the digital photograph submitted online or the matting and framing is unacceptable.
·      Show administrators reserve the right to change the category in which a photograph is entered if the photograph is, in their judgment, entered into the wrong category. The artist will be contacted to confirm before any changes are made. If contact can not be made the image will stay in it’s submitted category.
·      Every precaution will be taken to protect the artwork. However, InFocus and Tuolumne County Arts (TCA) will not be responsible for loss or damage to art entered in the show.

Sharp wire ends must be taped. Canvas, metal and glass prints need wires or acceptable hanging systems (see photos below). Saw tooth, styrofoam or alligator hanging systems are not acceptable. 
·      The maximum width of an image is 34 inchesmeasured on the outside edge of the frame. The maximum overall framed size is 60 inches, which is determined by adding the outside-framed height, plus the outside framed width together.
