ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY

Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual

reality, but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

The early days of photography centered on true to life imagery i.e. family portraits, images of streets, towns, mansions...  Over time photographers expanded their vision to more moody images, ultimately to where photography is today; an all encompassing art form, generated by camera and lens, and producing a vast sampling of imagery from reality to less recognizable abstracts.

This call is about the abstracts; those images that are not instantly identified as that person, that thing, etc.  It doesn't matter if you photograph something abstract or create the abstraction through photographic processes. If it is a macro shot, image of a small area on a graffiti wall, or fanciful result of manipulation, if the resulting image is abstract it works.   

As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

Artists throughout the ages have been drawn to the vast and varied world of flora. What moves you? Do you celebrate the essence of beauty or strive to heighten recognition of the perilous path of our environment? Are you inspired by a single bloom or a profusion of blossoms in a lush bouquet, enchanted gardens manicured or messy, plants endangered or invasive, carefully cultivated or sown by nature, bursting forth or shriveling on a vine?

Our Juror, Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist widely known for her ongoing series of hand-gilded photographs, States of Grace - illuminated impressions of grace in the natural world. Drawn to the serenity she finds in the sinuous elegance of organic forms, she embraces photography to preserve vanishing moments of beauty in our vulnerable environment.

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.

About The Juror 

About the Juror: We are privileged to have Kim Conaty as our Juror for BWAC PRINTS 2021.

Ms. Conaty is the Steven and Ann Ames Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In addition to overseeing the management and growth of the Whitney’s collection of drawings and prints, she has organized several exhibitions, most recently Nothing Is So Humble: Prints from Everyday Objects. Prior to the Whitney, Conaty held curatorial positions at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University; she earned a Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, and an M.A. from Williams College. 

With her guidance, we look forward to another spectacular show! Putting it all together in our wonderful space will be a fellow artist and BWAC Curators: Stephanie Norberg, Niklas Ramo and Diego Briceno, creating the ‘look’ of the exhibition with their unique placement designs. As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, our juror will look for how well that medium relates to the concept or movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment. 

ELIGIBILITY: All judging of entries will be on-line.

Pennsylvania Center For Photography Call for Entry

ODYSSEY 2021

  • | Start Date: 1/15/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 3/23/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 2
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Pennsylvania Center For Photography

The ODYSSEY Exhibition and its predecessor, the AMERICANA Exhibition, have been among the largest and most successful shows on the East Coast since their inception six years ago. This year the PCP flagship show returns, albeit in a bit of a different format that is dictated by these strange times. This year’s show will be all digital and will be presented on-line, but the principle is the same…

WHATEVER you shoot and WHEREVER your photographic journey has taken you is eligible for entry. Virtually any subject, taken anywhere in the world, is eligible. That’s as wide open as we can make it and the only exclusions are overtly sexual images (it’s a family show) and images that depict overt cruelty to animals (including humans). The only requirement to enter is that the images need to be good! Really, that’s all – don’t overthink it!

WHAT’S CHANGED?

#1 - We are putting our trademark Camera Club Challenge on hold for this year in recognition that most clubs are not physically meeting, which would present logistical issues to club organizers.

#2 - Since the show will be presented digitally, we are passing the savings in costs inherent in doing a physical show back to the photographers by way of higher award amounts, plus…

#3 – We are adding three new special prize categories to make things interesting, They are… Best Black & White Photograph, Best Wildlife Photograph, plus a discretionary Director’s Choice award that has some very specific requirements and represents a unique challenge! (See the Prospectus for details.)

The Nude

  • | End Date: 4/4/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The fine art nude has been a celebrated subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the nude has been featured in a classical pose and setting, maturing to illustrating the human body as a sculptural abstraction, and with some pushing boundaries.

 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 where legal are welcome.

Our juror for The Nude is Renée Jacobs. Renée is one of the most celebrated photographers of the female nude of our time. Recipient of the prestigious International Photography Award for Fine Art Nude, her work has been exhibited and published around the world.

Her 2009 & 2010 photo calendars went to #1 on Amazon. Monographs of her work include Werkdruck (2012/Editions Galerie Vevais, edited and with an introduction by Jock Sturges); Renée Jacobs' PARIS (2013/Editions Galerie Vevais) and Reves de Femmes (2014/Editions Bessard).  Magazines that have featured Renée's work include Silvershotz, Adore Noir, PH Magazine, Fine Art Photo, Nude Magazine, Photoicon, French Photo, B&W Magazine, Focus, FHM Turkey and numerous others.  Her interviews of Charis Wilson, Araki, Lillian Bassman, Shelby Lee Adams, Douglas Kirkland and others have been featured in magazines around the world.  She has been featured in numerous anthologies, such as Taschen's Mammoth Book of Erotic 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.

The Staged Photograph

  • | Start Date: 2/8/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 4/4/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: ($5.00) USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

Photographers have long utilised the medium to created a contrived environment, scene or vignette to communicate something other than the decisive traditionally associated with the medium. Staging gives the artist the opportunity to make very specific and careful choices, in order to control every element and even sometimes to give the appearance of spontaneity. With or without models, staged photography can be broken down into several categories; ranging from fantastical scenes impossible to contemplate in reality, to exercises in technical virtuosity often set up in a studio, to full movie production tableaux.

 Analog and digital images in all forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations where legal are welcome.

 

Our juror for The Staged Photograph is Richard Tuschman. Richard began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990’s, developing a style that synthesized his interests in photography, painting and assemblage. He has been exhibited widely, both in the US and internationally. Accolades and awards include Prix de la Photographie Paris (Gold Medal, People's Choice), Critical Mass Top 50, International Kontinent Awards (1st Place, Fine Art Projects) and Center Project Launch Juror's Award (chosen by Roger Watson, Fox Talbot Museum) among others. His photographs have been published on numerous online magazines/journals including Slate, LensCulture, LensScratch and Huffington Post. In 2016 he was named a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography. He lives and works in New York.

 

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.

  • | Host: Sierra Art Trails

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/

NYC4PA Call for Entry

NYC4PA - ARCHITECTURE 2020

  • | Start Date: 2/14/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 5/16/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: NYC4PA

Architecture is defined as the art or science of building, often with a focus on habitable structures.  Great architects like Gehry, Wright, and Gaudi come to mind as well as famous buildings like the Sydney Opera House and the Disney Music Hall in LA. But architecture can be much broader that habitable buildings. Consider the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids in Egypt and interiors like the main hall at New York's Grand Central Station.  Gardens can have a fundamental architecture as can other carefully planned spaces, 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.

As with all calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.
