Theme: The Streets | Juror: Valerie Jardin


"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930s. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city dweller interacts with his or her environment."

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

SHOW DESCRIPTION: Plein Aire painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”

 

JUROR:  Marilyn Eger -   Because I have a strong connection to the land and come from a long tradition of farming, I am primarily a plein air painter. When capturing a specific scene on-site is not possible, I work from my own photos as a point of departure. My paintings are inspired by my love of the area I live in and the things around me, such as the Acampo landscape, old tractors and cars, curious cattle, and old homesteads. I believe they bring me back to the earth.
    While my media of choice is oil, as well as pastel and acrylics, I feel like a sculptor when painting because I can chisel out the images as though they were stone. I am also drawn to reflected light and I have a deep passion for vibrant color. My intent is not to be a camera but to convey my feelings and sensations at that moment in time. My paintings are impressionistic in style as I try to catch the fleeting light of the golden hour.

For this call the focus is on images where a curve or curves is an important element of the composition.  No matter where you photograph the possibilities are endless. It can be that winding road. It can also be a stack of old tires, curved windows in a city building, or, in fact, the shape of the building itself. Do you see the curvaceous form of an elephant’s trunk when feeding, the curl of a giant wave or even a closer view of a head full of curls. Curves are all around us.  Capture them as a dominant element of your images and send them in.

Matiash has spent the better part of a decade educating, empowering and inspiring photographers all around the world with my tutorials, videos, and stories. Furthermore, he uses his years providing social and content strategy for some of the world’s largest companies to develop and execute on a variety of marketing campaigns successfully and authentically. He is proud to co-host the No Name Photo Show, a photography-based podcast.

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. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show.

Call For Entry: Memento Mori

International Submission Deadline:
September 15th, 2024 11:59 PST

Memento Mori is a profound and evocative theme in photography, focusing on the transient nature of life and the inevitability of death. This concept, rooted in the Latin phrase meaning "remember that you must die," encourages a deep reflection on mortality and the passage of time. Memento mori can be a powerful reminder of the fleeting nature of our existence, a source of comfort and inspiration, and that we should make the most of our remaining time on this mortal coil. Show us, what makes life worth living, and how does one cope with the certainty of death?

Memento Mori is an international open call for photographers ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional images, traditional and non-conventional media, and conventional or alternative processes with a subjective analog or digital photographic base are welcome for submission.


Submission Deadline: September 15th, 2024

NYC4PA Call for Entry

NYC4PA PRIMARY COLORS 2024

  • | Start Date: 7/21/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: NYC4PA

RED, YELLOW, and BLUE are the three basic paint colors an artist needs to create all the colors they use on their palate.  Although most of what we see in our daily life is the world of color generated from the infinite number of combinations of these elements, each stands out on its own as an important visual element.

This competition is about images in which one of these colors is a critical component.  You will submit each image into one of the categories RED, BLUE or YELLOW. Do you have a monochrome image with a red car parked at the curb, a portrait with a funky pair of yellow sunglasses or a city image with a blue bench as the major element. Have you modified a print to be all shades of red?  Essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition is fits the bill. Be creative and send us your best!

 

Please Note

Images awarded an NYC4PA prize within the past 2 years are not eligible. Images submitted that were not selected for a prize may be submitted at any time.

We use a blind jury process – no signatures or watermarks on the submitted files.

  • | Host: Cape Cod Art Center

Cape Cod Art Center seeks submissions for "WILD CRAZY AND ABSURD 2024".  Artists of any level are invited to submit to this open juried online Digital Art exhibit.  

Any interpretation of the theme will be considered.  Cash prizes awarded for Best in Show, First Place, Second Place and Honorable Mention.

Submit your JPEG's by Sunday, October 20, 2024 by midnight.

Diana deAvila will be judging this exhibit.

What is digital art: The digital artist uses pixels rather than paint. Pixels can be captured from DSLs to mobile devices. The artist develops images on computers, mobile phones and tablets to express their creative vision. Many styles of editing are accessible to the artist including digital drawing, digital painting, digital collage with photographs or experimental abstract design or apps. Digital Art is progressive!

All work should be of the artist’s own creation.  Digital painting, digital collage and digital photographic work can use AI images as a component, but not solely as the created work.   Editing software or apps that use components which are not generated by the artist, use of components of an image that are potentially recognizable by the original artist, or any use of word generated AI must be disclosed despite ownership or copyright agreements.

All artwork must be created within the past three years. 

The jury may accept a maximum of two works from any one artist.  Payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.

Artist notification by email and posted on our website on November 1, 2024.  All those who submitted jpegs will be emailed.  If you do not receive an email by November 1st, contact manager@capecodartcenter.org.  Check your junk and promotion email folders. 

"WILD, CRAZY AND ABSURD 2024" will be live on our website Friday, November 1, 2024. This exhibit will also be shown on a screen at Cape Cod Art Center.

Brookgreen Gardens is a renowned sculpture garden located south of Murrell's Inlet, SC, covering over 9,000 acres. Originally a rice plantation, it was later transformed into an award-winning sculpture garden. Brookgreen Gardens boasts an extensive collection of sculptures, flowers, plants, and animals. The visionary behind Brookgreen Gardens was Anna Hyatt Huntington, a member of NAWA, and it is now considered one of the top sculpture gardens in the US.

According to their mission statement, Brookgreen Gardens aims to:

  • Collect, preserve, and exhibit figurative sculpture by American artists;
  • Cultivate a display garden and exhibit sculptures therein;
  • Collect, preserve, and exhibit the plants, animals, and cultural materials of the South Carolina Lowcountry;
  • Educate a diverse audience about sculpture, horticulture, and the ecology and history of the Lowcountry;
  • Provide additional artistic and cultural opportunities for members, guests, and the community;
  • Sustain the institution and all of its assets with visionary leadership, sound management, and prudent fiscal policies.

For the 2025 annual exhibit, you are required to create artwork that is directly influenced by Brookgreen Gardens and reflects their passion for sculpture, plants, zoo animals, and the history of this magnificent property. Given the nature of this venue, sculpture pieces are highly encouraged, and are essential to highlight the continuity between Anna Hyatt Huntington and NAWA. As always, all forms of art will be considered for this juried exhibit.

The definition of architecture is the art or science of building, often with a focus on habitable structures.  We are familiar with architects like Gehry, Wright, and Gaudi as well as famous buildings like the Empire State Building in New York and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. But are habitable structures a requirement? Actually, it can be much broader than that. For instance, the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids in Egypt, interiors of cathedrals or the main hall at New York's Grand Central Station are all examples of world-famous architecture. In addition, examples of architecture do not have to be world famous.  Private houses, bridges etc. are all examples and skylines may represent a collection of similar or different types of architecture.

Send us your vision of architecture with images that represent any of the facets mentioned above or another interpretation you envision.  Whole structures and architectural detail are all welcome.

Cape Cod Art Center seeks submissions for “WABI-SABI 2024".  Photographers of any level are invited to submit to this open juried online photography exhibit.  

Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfections of nature and of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay. As artists we often seek items that are "perfect", with no blemishes or defects. Wabi Sabi teaches us to find beauty in everyday life, to revere things that are imperfect, impermanent, and/or incomplete, to embrace crows feet, rust, and frayed edges, and "to celebrate the cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind.”

Any interpretation of the theme will be considered.  Cash prizes awarded for Best in Show, First Place, Second Place and Honorable Mention.

Submit your JPEG's by Sunday, July 14, 2024 by midnight.

Lisa Cuchara will be judging this exhibit.  There is no personal feedback given  by juror.  

Photographs used must be the artist's own.  Photo editing apps and programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom may be used to enhance original photographs.  Digital scans, stock, image downloads or word generated AI images may not be used. 

All artwork must be created within the past three years. 

The jury may accept a maximum of two works from any one artist.  Payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.

Artist notification by email and posted on our website on July 26, 2024.  All those who submitted jpegs will be emailed.  If you do not receive an email by July 26th, contact manager@capecodartcenter.org.  Check your junk and promotion email folders. 

"WABI-SABI 2024" will be live on our website Friday, July 26, 2024.  This exhibit will also be shown on a screen at Cape Cod Art Center.

Abandoned is an exhibition exploring abandoned and rediscovered objects, spaces, and structures. A popular genre in the photographic world is the trend of urban exploration ("urbex") — the exploration of abandoned or forgotten places to document the narrative of those who lived or worked there. Through the captured image, we can glimpse the ephemeral nature and memory of ourselves and our surroundings and preserve them before being lost to time and place. What do these structures and objects convey about society as we leave them to decay? What is the essence of time and place, and what-or whom-are we abandoning?

Abandoned is an international open call for photographers ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional images, traditional and non-conventional media, and conventional or alternative processes with a subjective analog or digital photographic base are welcome for submission.

VALLEY FOCUS: GROWING TALENT

CALL FOR ARTISTS

Application Deadline: June 29, 2024
Calling all emerging artists! If you are between the ages of 20-35 and have ties to California’s Central Valley, we’d love to see your work! We are seeking painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, ceramicists, textile artists, and others who work in any medium to feature in a group show in the Spring of 2025. In the annual Valley Focus exhibition, we explore the work of our regional artists and their relationship to our communities.

Through this open call for entries, we expect to identify 10-15 artists and include their work in a group exhibition in our beautiful Ferrari Gallery. The exhibition will be on view from February 11 – May 17, 2025. Those selected will be in the early stages of their careers, and will be either:

  • from the Central Valley but now living elsewhere,
  • educated in the Central Valley (regardless of current residence location), or
  • currently residing in the Central Valley

  • | End Date: 6/29/2024 2:30:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per set

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED to June 16th, 2024 - There is still time to apply! We are thrilled to share 21 years of artistic excellence with our artists, patrons, and supporters. If you have questions about the application or the exhibit please call 559-683-5551 or email admin@sierraarttrails.org 

Sierra Art Trails is eagerly anticipated by a loyal audience. Visitors are encouraged to explore our communities, meet the artists in person, and purchase works directly from them.

As an artist, there are many reasons to participate in this prestigious event. This 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.

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 worth the cost of participation. Networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post-show sales often result from showcasing your work during Sierra Art Trails.

Sierra Art Trails 2024 will take place over two weekends, Friday through Sunday, Oct. 4th - 6th and 11th – 13th.  Artists can elect to show any number of days, from only one to all six days of the event. Show dates for each artist are indicated in the exhibit catalog.

The cost to participate as an artist is only $150 USD, with just $25 due when applying and the $125 balance due upon acceptance. The exhibit prospectus is available on our website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/.

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. We do not accept mass-produced crafts, gift items, etc.

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 share their show sites with others. Our planning committee will work with artists who do not have access to a suitable show site to help them find a location to exhibit their work.

Please note that artists must be present to participate. Meeting the artists and learning how and why they create is an important aspect of the show. Artists must be present at their sites from 10 am to 5 pm on the days they choose to exhibit.

If you have questions, please contact us by phone at (559) 658-8844, or email us at info@sierraarttrails.org.

You can also visit us on the web at www.sierraarttrails.org to learn more about this exciting event.
