Theme | THE STREETS

Juror | Layne Kennedy 

"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". www.theartstory.org

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.

Entry fees are non-refundable and exhibition specific (Print or Digital) so please be sure that you have selected the correct exhibition before submitting your payment.  

This option is for people who will display physical prints on the walls of the gallery, if selected by the judge(s). If you wish to have your photographs displayed on the hi-res display, rather than as prints, if selected by the judges, please use the Digital Exhibition option instead!  

We determine the number of prints we can accept based on the sizes listed on the entries. We cannot magically create additional wall space so while we realize that listing exact dimensions may be difficult, we cannot accept prints that are more than 20% larger than what you list initially. For example, an image entered as being a framed 11 x 14 print cannot become a 24 x 30 or it will be rejected when delivered.

We have room to hang a limited number of larger prints. The maximum size is 44” wide by 60” tall. We expect that there will be significant competition for these limited space so, if you are entering a large print, please indicate on the entry form whether a smaller version is available which could be considered for acceptance.

The cost to enter is $25.00 for the first two images and $5.00 per additional image. You may enter both the Print and Digital Exhibitions but separate entry fees apply.

Overview

 

Thanks to a unique collaboration between the PCP and the New Hope Arts Center, the TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition is back for its 6th year, and we are very pleased to announce that one of the East Coast’s most unique photographic shows will once again be live!

TRANSFORMATIONS will return with the PCP’s hallmark dual print and digital exhibitions format, which will be displayed at the New Hope Arts Center during the height of New Hope’s tourist season! Not only that, but we will be able to hang more and larger prints than we have been able to in the past. Perhaps you can tell, we’re excited!

If you have been rejected from other shows or your work questioned because you use textures, composites, filters, or any of the other wonderful tools available to create your own vision, then you have found your home! Welcome to TRANSFORMATIONS, a juried exhibition that pays tribute to the vision and skills of photographers who freely express their creativity by whatever means they choose.

 

Photographers working in all genres are invited to submit work for possible inclusion in the exhibition. The subject matter can be anything you want – literally anything! People, places, things, visions, are all fine with us. 

The only requirement is that the image must have started life in your camera. You can modify or create the physical environment, apply in-camera techniques, shoot infrared, use composites, and/or use post processing to realize your own artistic reality. We are a very inclusive organization, so any degree of alteration from mild to extreme is welcome in our show.

The Artist Intervenes | Guest Curator Aline Smithson

Photographic artists are reconsidering the potential of a photograph with a shift to making rather than taking photographs.  By using vintage and contemporary photographs as a starting point, artists create physically layered works of art that result in an object, often in reaction to the flood of ubiquitous imagery that digital and cell phone photography has afforded. 

Praxis Gallery accepts submissions of photographic art or lens-based artwork that utilizes physical interventions and investigations of photographic surfaces that can include sewing, cutting, drawing, painting, tearing, bending, and weaving, all ways of interrogating the material qualities of a physical photograph to create new realities. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC SEPT 12 – OCT 17, 2021

Threads That Bind, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition) calls for submissions from artists working in traditional and/or contemporary approaches to fiber. Submissions must use fiber materials and/or processes (weaving, knitting, spinning, rug-making, embroidery, crochet, braiding, beading, needlepoint, cross-stitch, dyeing, sewing) as a primary component of the work. The final form of submitted artwork may be a sculpture, photograph, performance or video, wearable or decorative art or fashion, as well as an embroidered, woven, crocheted, dyed or knitted wall-hung or free-standing piece. We welcome large-scale work up to 96" in any direction. 

Questions to ask yourself about your work when making a submission:

How have you embraced fiber processes during our sustained period of forced social isolation? 

Does fiber making provide comfort, or do you use fiber processes to push against the boundaries of social constraints and/or civil and social unrest?

What does fiber making in the 21st century mean to you, and why do you choose these processes and materials instead of or in addition to more "traditional" art-making media?

In addition to images of up to 3 artworks, please write 1-3 sentences answering one of the above 3 questions.

About the Jurors:  Juried by local artists, Alicia Degener and Iviva Olenick on behalf of BWAC.

NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC

SEPT 12 – OCT 17, 2021

Recycle 2021, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show of art crafted from cast‐off, discarded, and re‐ purposed materials, will be a celebration of ingenuity and imagination.  We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two‐ and three‐ dimensional art created in the re‐use genre. To help us in this quest, we are once again greatly honored to have our juror, from Materials for the Arts.  This year it is the Director of Education, John Cloud Kaiser.

As well as looking for skill in the use of material, we want to see art that demonstrates the importance of conserving our limited natural resources. We look for how well the medium relates to the upcycling movement and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment.

In the northern Hemisphere summer Is here, the weather is warm, and we have the great outdoors to play in.  The truth, however, is we can play indoors and outdoors all year long no matter what the weather. “Play Ball” brings to mind baseball, but sports, including things like polo and volleyball, are only part of how we play. Don’t forget the myriad of other outdoor and indoor games.  Consider childhood activities like hit the penny and hopscotch, running bases, playground swings, seesaws and merry go rounds. Indoors adds so much more with all the wonderful games like chess, mah jongg, bridge and Monopoly. Shots that focus on the game, the equipment, or the players are all part of the theme. Send in your interpretation of this broad and varied theme.

 

As with all NYC4PA calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

Elements of Renewal

A Carnegie Arts Center Lobby Gallery Exhibition, October 6, 2021- January 23, 2022

The story of Turlock’s Carnegie Arts Center is one of renewal and renaissance. From the ashes of fire in 2005, a new entity was born in 2011. In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we plan a juried exhibition reflecting the significance of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire.

For centuries, these four archetypal elements have been used to explain the nature of all matter. Many ancient cultures—Greece, Egypt, Babylonia, Persia, Japan, Tibet—had similar understandings. These elements each carry unique properties and symbolic meanings. At some level, all may be seen to have a relationship to the concept of rebirth and growth:

  • Earth is the physical matter, the terrestrial world and the changing seasons; this extends to representations of mother nature and fertility.
  • Water is a source of life, and is often associated with the qualities of imagination and intuition; it can also be a purifier and the giver of new life.
  • Air can represent wind and weather, as well as the breath and the spirit in all living things; to start anew we may “breathe life” into something.
  • Fire is the element of passion and energy, but it is also included in myths of purification and rebirth – like the phoenix – where destruction and growth go hand-in-hand.

Artists from throughout California are invited to submit their work for this juried exhibition. Works may be in any medium or style. Celebrate the elements with us through your representational, symbolic or abstract depiction of one or more of the four Elements of Renewal.

Entry Deadline: Sunday, September 5, 2021, at 5 p.m.

Dates of Exhibition: October 6, 2021 – January 23, 2022

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

Awards: Grand Prize $500; Two Awards of Merit $250; Four Honorable Mentions $50

Juror: Hope Werness, Professor Emerita, CSU Stanislaus Art Department, author of The Continuum Encyclopedia of Animal Symbolism in World Art and The Continuum Encyclopedia of Native Art

Submissions: Please review the complete rules for entering at: www.CarnegieArtsTurlock.org/call-for-entries.  Works that have previously been exhibited at the Carnegie Arts Center will not be accepted. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 5, 2021.

There is a non-refundable entry fee of $20 for the first piece, $15 for each additional entry for non-member artists; $15 for the first entry, $10 for each additional entry for members of the Carnegie Arts Center. Each artist may enter up to six (6) works.
