Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme | The Found Object

  • | Start Date: 6/16/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 7/22/2018 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | 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.

Meet Our Jurors:

Dave Wofford

Dave Wofford has manned the reins of Horse & Buggy Press since 1996. During this time he has designed over 100 books for a variety of publishers and individuals, many of which have won awards for their design, production, and content. While Dave most often works for other publishers, museums, and organizations, he has collaboratively published over twenty fine press books for established artists (Allan Gurganus, Rob McDonald, Catharine Carter, Roger May, John Lane) and many of these titles utilize in-house letterpress printing, hand-sewn bindings, specialty papers, and other high end production touches that elevate the books into aesthetically rich cultural artifacts. The design studio is located in Durham, North Carolina and is aptly known as Horse & Buggy Press and Friends as Dave also curates a 500 square foot storefront gallery featuring the work of over 20 artists and craftspersons, and sublets two artist studios in the back of the mixed use space.
