Curated By: Praxis Directors Theme: Macro > Larger Than Life

Macro photography is all about showcasing a subject larger than it is in real life — an extreme close-up of something small. Photography is always a matter of perspective.  “It’s an alien world when you get into the macro level.” - Ben Long.

Macro photography challenges the photographer to capture the minute, granular details of a world that generally escapes our daily attention: this can include insects, plants, natural and human produced details of any and every subject matter in the world around us – from the texture of feathers to the geometric labyrinth of a microchip board.    

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that transforms the miniature into the larger than life, images that showcase the unseen and overlooked, and tiny moments of beauty presented through a magnified perspective. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

IThe Everyday Landscape: New Topographic Photography

Entry Deadline: Sunday, August 14, 2022

Notice of Acceptance: Sunday, August 28, 2022

Exhibition Dates: October 6 – November 5, 2022

In 1975 the George Eastman House exhibition New Topographic: Photographs of a Man-altered Landscape, proclaimed a new approach to landscape photography, ultimately giving a name to the emerging movement and style. 

The photographic landscape that once focused on the beauty of the natural world was transformed by a group of eight photographers that had turned their lens on contemporary issues such as environmentalism, objectivity and national identity, and how the natural world was being shaped, molded and altered.  Cited as the first ‘photoconceptual’ style, new topographic photography ultimately helped to redefine American photography in that images were “stripped of any artistic frills and reduced to an essentially topographic state.”

Since this orginial exhibition almost fifty years ago, artists have been approaching the photographic landscape in a way that is reminiscent of and inspired by the works of the orginial New Topographic photographers.  Again, this can be seen as a rejection of classical landscape traditions, moving instead towards banal, industrial details that appear quite typological in their essence since they acknowledge and appreciate the overlooked details of our everyday.

The landscape continues to change and there is no shortage of inspiration. But, what else?  The Everyday Landscape seeks to know what’s next – how has the genre and ideologies of the New Topographic movement created new territory by building on  these preexisting traditions.  

The juror for The Everyday Landscape is Lisa Hostetler.  Lisa is a curator and art historian specializing in photography and contemporary art. She previously served as curator in charge  of the Department of Photography at the George Eastman Museum, the McEvoy Family Curator of Photography at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and curator of photographs at the Milwaukee Art Museum. She earned her PhD from Princeton University with a dissertation on photographer Louis Faurer while working as a research associate at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Major exhibitions she has curated or co-curated include Marcia Resnick: As It Is or Could Be (2022); David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire (2018); Eugene Richards: The Run-On of Time (2017);  A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age (2016); and Color Rush: American Color Photography from Stieglitz to Sherman (2013). She also organized several shows that were the first museum exhibitions of new bodies of work, including James Welling: Choreograph (2020) and Tanya Marcuse: Woven (2019).

Photographers are invited to submit works to The Everyday Landscape, and may submit up to three (3) works for $35.00.  The call for submissions is open from July 5 to August 14.  Accepted artists will be notified by August 28.  Works accepted must be printed no smaller than 8x10” and no larger than 16x20”, framed and ready for hanging.  Works must arrive no later than September 25. The exhibition will open at 981 Lady Street on October 6 with the opening reception the same evening.  The exhibition hangs until November 5, 2022.

Sales.   PhotoSC encourages sales during the exhibition. The commission is the standard 40/60 percentage of the sale price. If a print is sold it will be ordered from the photographer at the time of sale.

Copyright.  Photographers/Artists retain the copyright to their work. If work is selected for the exhibition, the Photographer/Artist grants PhotoSC the right to use said work for the promotion of the photographer/artist, the photography show and PhotoSC across all media platforms. Usage of work is as stated without further compensation.

PhotoSC is a non-profit arts organization whose primary vision and focus is the development of a dialogue about photography and the photographic canon.

JUROR

 

Peter Poulides is the founder and executive director of DCP. Photography and Peter discovered each other when he was 13, having just moved to Athens, Greece. When his high school teachers wondered why he wasn’t in class, they knew to check the darkroom.

After college his dream of being a travel photographer came into focus with his first assignment for Travel & Leisure magazine. That led to over a decade of assignments for national and regional travel and business publications, newspapers and corporations. His client list included: Smithsonian Magazine, Food and Wine, American Airlines, Forbes, Fortune, Business Week, New York Times, Exxon, Frito Lay and Texaco.

Like most photographers, Peter is attracted to color, form, and especially the geometry and whimsy in everyday objects and situations. This love of color shows up frequently in his own work and he looks forward to finding the strength of color in photos submitted for this exhibition.

California Dreaming

A Carnegie Arts Center Lobby Gallery Exhibition,

On view October 7, 2022- January 21, 2023

The dream of success has brought millions of people to California – dreams of gold, celebrity, and creative freedom have fueled the imaginations of adventurers, entrepreneurs, and artists from around the world. The myth of California as a place of peace and prosperity goes back to the time of the conquistadors with tales of Queen Califia and her island of gold. In more modern times, the lure of stardom in Hollywood and the promise of opportunity in Silicon Valley have drawn aspirants of all sorts. Since John Muir’s first visit, naturalists and rock climbers have made pilgrimages to the Yosemite Valley, while those seeking the freedom to experiment and express themselves have flocked to San Francisco since the 1960s. In our dreams of a better life, California may appear to be the “Golden Ticket” state.

The environment, people, economy, and mythology of California all provide rich subject matter for artists. What is your California dream? How do you see our state, with its promises past and present? Artists from throughout California are invited to submit their work for this juried exhibition. Works may be in any medium or style.

Entry Deadline: Saturday, August 27, 2022, at 5 p.m.

Dates of Exhibition: October 7, 2022 – January 21, 2023

Media Accepted: Oils and Acrylics, Photography and Digital Media, Prints, Drawings, Watercolors, Collage and Mixed Media, Textiles, Ceramics, Sculpture, Decorative Arts

Theme: Nocturnes: Dusk till Dawn | Juror: Wendi Schneider

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Spanning two centuries, the magic of night photography has captured the collective imagination of the masses. From the infamously long exposures required by early artists to high-speed color film and the advent of digital technology, the light at night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, artificial structures, and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The Portrait

  • | Start Date: 7/4/2022 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The Portrait. We use portraits as objects of remembrance and reverence, of seduction and glorification. From the keepsakes in lockets as tiny remembrances of love, to the likenesses of leaders meant to inspire and seduce with their power. They can stir, and confront, and drive us to action. Just as they can lull in longing for a time since passed. They act as a mirror in whose reflection we find the inward experiences of ourselves, or as a window from which we look out toward the virtues of another.

Our juror for the The Portrait is Richard McCabe. Richard McCabe is a curator, photographer and writer based in New Orleans. He was born in England and grew up in the American South. In 1998, he received an MFA in Studio Art from Florida State University. Since 2010, he has been the Curator of Photography at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. He has organized and curated over thirty exhibitions including: Seeing Beyond the Ordinary, The Mythology of Florida, The Rising, Eudora Welty: Photographs from the 1930s - 40s, The Colourful South, Self-Processing: Instant Photography, Memory is a Strange Bell: The Art of William Christenberry and New Southern Photography.

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. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.

A Single image can have a powerful storytelling impact, change the way we see, and leave a lasting impression. Often, a signature image or motif is associated with an artist or photographer or project. We’re looking for images that stand on their own, able to tell a story without supporting images.Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for the The Singular Image is Blue Mitchell. Mitchell is an artist and independent publisher. Based in Portland, Oregon, he has been involved with many facets of the photographic arts.

Mitchell received his BFA from Oregon College of Art & Craft where he has also taught studio school classes and workshops. In his personal work, he implements many photographic techniques including acrylic lifts, alternative processes, burnt transparencies, and other mixed media. Most recently, he has been exclusively using Polaroid films for his new work.

Mitchell states “ I’m nostalgic. I am deeply interested in photo and art history, yet I’m not crippled by what’s already been done, ‘cause everything has. I do not limit my photographic toolbox. I have no problems ruining my art… for its own sake. That includes film and prints… all those lovely, precious artifacts.”

Beyond his own work, Mitchell runs a publishing company named One Twelve, which focuses on artfully crafted photo practices. Mitchell also hosts a podcast called the Diffusion Tapes where he chats with artists, curators, and writers working in the field of fine art photography.

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. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.

RED, YELLOW, and BLUE balloons were the trademark of Wonder Bread for 1950s TV kids. They are also the three basic paint colors an artist needs.  Although mixed together you can create a world of color, 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. Possibilities include - black and white photographs with a single point of color, a red, yellow or blue monochrome, essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition. Is the blue sky a main element of your image, a red ball or maybe a funky pair of yellow sunglasses? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red?  Be creative and send us your best!

Yosemite Renaissance 38 - Call to Artists

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by Yosemite and the California Sierra Nevada region to display and promote their art. The exhibit opens in March 2023 at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in Oakhurst, CA, then travels to Kings Art Center in Hanford, Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock, and at the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley.

Awards

$4,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at Yosemite Gateway Art Center in March 2023.

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 National Park, 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. Yosemite Renaissance also encourages innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.
