‘Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.’ Ellie Wiesel.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow - exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

During college, he took a job at Boulevard Bistro, where he fell in love with his wife, Candice, as well as his expanding wine education.  Chris accepted a position with a boutique winery in the Lodi AVA and over the course of four harvests, Chris developed his passion for the art and science of wine and viticulture.  In 2019, Chris channeled his knowledge and skill into realizing his dream of making his own wine by entering into a joint venture with Bartholomew Family Vineyards and Winery owned by lifelong Elk Grove resident Hal Bartholomew and Beverly Brautigam.  Christopher Cellars was born.

Light and it's quality is the basic elment of photography. Thre is an icomic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the air space as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another.  Sunsets are beautiful and midday sun is harsh.  A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits; late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches. 

For this call we are looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference.  Glare, flare, shadow, fill light all work as do lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, streaming rays of sunlight on a floor or as seen through a dusty atmosphere. There are examples everwhere.  Show us your shots where light is the key element.  All 2D photo mediums are welcome.


Mpls Photo Center Call for Entry

"NordEast" at the Mpls Photo Center

  • | Start Date: 2/13/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 6/28/2020 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Mpls Photo Center

This geographically unique Exhibition is open to all photographers. The exhibit theme is: NordEast.  Please submit up to 10 images for consideration. B&W or Color or Digital Art. Our most-excellent juror, Jon Oulman (the de facto Mayor of Northeast Minneapolis) will be selecting the images for exhibit in our Jefferson Gallery for debut post-COVID19 threat.   The Call for Entry submissions CLOSE at midnight on Sunday, June 28. The selection/judging process is done on-line at very high-resolution, in random order, and is blind/anonymous. 

MPC will award honors for Best of Show, 1st Runner-up, and 3rd Place with Cash Prizes of $150, $100, and $50 respectively, and a 3-month MPC Membership gratis, for all three winners.

The Theme: NordEast

"NorthEast Minneapolis. Widely dubbed "NordEast". And the new home of the Mpls Photo Center.

The coveted, mildly edgy neighborhood that somehow just exudes authentic and cool and art, and boasts "the great-white way" of NE dive bars, featuring real people wielding $3 highballs and ice cold PBRs.  All in a tidy stretch from Marshall to Johnson, and St. Anthony Parkway to Hennepin Avenue.

It is a place... but more-so a state of mind. Great neighborhoods like this stew and evolve and congeal over time, and you can't rush it and you sure can't plan it. Dripping with ethnicity and eccentricity, this urban sprawl is home to a boatload of great musicians, artists, restauranteurs, hipsters, grandmas, hard-workin' Joes, and hangers-on.

We know who we are, and we can spot the pretenders coming half-way across the Lowry bridge. But we'll always give you a chance to visit and play nice. Afterall, we have our own beer named after us, and it is mighty tasty, and decidedly NOT an IPA.

There's a de facto mayor of this little pocket of goodness, and he cuts hair pretty good, LOVES photography, and has been presenting great music and righteous cocktails for years  on the little corner of grunge he's staked out at University & 13th. You'd know him as Jon (no H) the 331 guy. He'd like to see your favorite photographs of our lovely neighborhood so we can hang them here at the Mpls Photo Center during Art-A-Whirl.

We're expecting alot of images from this very competitive creative community, and have room for only 50. So he's got a tough job, but we're confident he will acquit himself honorably.

So resurrect that old sleeve of negatives you saw in your sock drawer last month, or for God's sake pull your digital files together, or better yet shoot something new and show us your take on YOUR NordEast.

Weird wins."

Timeline:

All photographers selected for exhibit will be notified which of their image(s ) are included in the show by Email by April 30.  All exhibiting artists will be honored and featured here at the MPC Galleries. The reception is FREE and Open to the Public. We expect you will invite all your family and friends to this prestigious event.

The Opening Reception for the NordEast exhibit is TBD.

We are excited about the potential for an excellent exhibit, and a wonderful showcase for the talented and passionate photographers of NorthEast Minneapolis, the Twin Cities and beyond.

"The way I have always looked at it is the world is in color. And there’s nothing we can do about that." - William Eggleston

The world is definitely in color, yet for photographers the decision to photograph in color is not always black and white. One of the raging debates within the photographic arts community over the past 50 years has been – What constitutes a truer form of fine-art photography: Black & white or color? For the first 130 years of photographic history it was definitely black & white. Black & white photography was the form of photography practiced by the true master craftsman and artists of the print medium – Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. 

Our juror for Color is Richard McCabe. Richard McCabe was born in Mildenhall, England and grew up in the American South. He received an MFA in Studio Art from Florida State University in 1998. That same year he received a fellowship to the American Photography Institute, National Graduate Seminar at New York University. Over the last 18 years, he has lived and worked in New York City and New Orleans, Louisiana. His art has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums throughout the United States. Mr. McCabe works primarily in photography, painting, and installation art. In December 2014, McCabe had a solo exhibition – Once Around the Sun – Instant Photographs by Richard McCabe, at Boyd Satellite Gallery, New Orleans. Currently, Mr. McCabe is the Curator of Photography at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Exhibition Details 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.

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/
