Spring, the death of winter. Like life and death, so spring and winter. The cycle is truly endless, and endless it should be. When Persephone wakes from her slumber deep within the Underworld, her heart yearns not for the cold, dead embrace of Hades but for her mother, Demeter, and the mortal realm above. When daughter and mother are reunited, the Earth erupts with ecstasy. Gaia herself nurtures seeds as they push through the ground, eager to claim their right to live. Flora and fauna restore hope as Apollo’s chariot weaves through the sky. Show us the rivers meandering across the land, the Parthenon at dusk and the fields in full bloom. Show us the life spring gives, show us the warmth it brings, above all, show us what spring truly means to you.

Spring 2023 is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional, non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.


Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme: Femalia | Curated By: Praxis Directors 2023

  • | Start Date: 1/17/2023 12:00:00 AM (PT)

Theme: Femalia | Curated By: Praxis Directors

We are programmed to understand gender and femininity within narrow and restrictive definitions. Photographs, both historical and contemporary, often reinforce these definitions and boundaries that no longer serve us. 

Photography has the power to transcend all manner of boundaries. It can blur minuscule lines between otherwise dichotomous realms of physical and philosophical space. If we are to reflect on photography’s capacity to challenge concepts of gender and femininity, we enter into an extraordinary opportunity to re-envision and expand our understanding of all who identify as women. We can confront our programmed understandings and reinterpret, both what is in front of the camera and what is behind it. 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women, femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. This is an inclusive call that is open to all that apply. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Plein Air painting dates back to the French impressionists who left their studios to paint “in the open air.” Plein Air painting is exhilarating and challenging for artists who attempt to quickly capture the light and colors of the scene before them. The French term "plein air" means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pieces out of doors rather than in a studio.

 

There will be a welcome reception as well as a final reception during which wet paint competition art pieces will be auctioned.  Awards presentation for the overall three-day artwork and for wet paint competition will take place during the final reception on 4/15. Each day completed Plein Air artwork will be exhibited at The Grove at the Commons and will be available for purchase.  All artwork completed during this competition must be for sale.

National Association of Women Artists South Carolina Chapter

Presents Online Exhibit - We See: Creating from Verse

March 15 - May 1, 2023

Reception at Annual Luncheon, date to be announced

Juror: Mary Edna Fraser

 

We See: Creating from Verse

Writers of literature have long used art as an inspiration for their written work. In this exhibit we are turning this around and using poetry as a device to conceive a work of art. The exhibit theme encourages artists to be inspired by the poetry of South Carolina poet, Lisa Hammond. In this show, we ask SC Chapter members to engage with Hammond’s poetry and create a visual of our experience.

A Statement from Lisa Hammond: Our featured poet for We See: Creating from Verse


“Poetry and art share one heart: both give us new ways of seeing. Both art forms speak to all our senses—we hear the sky in Van Gogh’s Starry Night, we long to reach high to stroke the sleek bronze flank of one of Anna Hyatt Huntington's horses—but for many of us, art is an exercise in sight. The artist brings us to an object, an experience, a moment and shows us something we have never seen before. Poetry brings us to these revelations through words instead of watercolor, images rendered in language instead of ink. For me as a writer, a poem often begins in something I see—the Catawba spider lilies blooming mid-river, an empty bluebird egg on a dirt road. One of the great gifts of my writing life has been the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from visual artists, because that same spider lily photographed or painted or stitched gains a new depth, because writing in a community of the artistically like-minded is a wealth of riches. When writers and visual artists come together in their respective arts, we see both the subject of the art and art itself anew.”

 

Lisa Hammond’s writing is grounded in the sometimes-haunted landscapes of South Carolina and explores the intersections between story, art, history, family, and memory, all in the ordinary objects of her Southern home. Dr. Hammond is Director of Faculty Affairs in the Office of the Provost at the University of South Carolina and is a Professor of English at the University of South Carolina Lancaster. Her poetry is published widely. See more at http://www.lisaghammond.com/p/poetry.html

Theme: The Still Life | Juror: Kimberly Witham 2023

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme: The Still Life | Juror: Kimberly Witham

Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Submissions may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission

Architectural photography: The photographing of buildings and similar structures that are aesthetically pleasing and accurate representations of their subjects.Throughout the history of photography, buildings have been highly valued photographic subjects, mirroring society's appreciation for architecture and its cultural significance.

As building designs changed and broke with traditional forms, architectural photography also evolved. During the early-to-mid-20th century, architectural photography became more creative as photographers used lines and bold shadows in their compositions, and experimented with other techniques, resulting in architectural photography being viewed as more of an art form. 

The SE Center is looking for all forms of architectural imagery, urban or rural, black-and-white and color, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for Architect is Michael Pannier. Michael Pannier is an award winning professional fine art and commercial photographer And Executive Director of the SE Center for Photography, in Greenville, SC. Previously based in Maryland, Michael has spent 30 years in photography, 20 years in the gallery and art world. Relocating to South Carolina, The SE Center for Photography was born as an exhibition and education venue for fine photography.

The ethos or guiding beliefs and ideals which have come to represent America, such as freedom and The American Dream, are central to the concept. For better or worse, from amber waves of grain, an apple pie, baseball, cars, drugs, football, guns, and purple mountains' majesty, how does your work portray the melting pot of a paradox known as the United States of America?

Americana is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional, non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Walking anywhere in the world at different times of day you can see dramatic changes as the light goes from midday bright to dusk.  Early morning/late afternoon light can transform a simple scene to one of great interest as shadows grow longer and shorter.  Consider city streets with shadows of tall buildings crossing sidewalks, cars, busses and people.  Similarly bright light casting shadows on a flight of stairs creates a canvas of black and white stripes. Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the line-up of palm trees in the tropics with the shadows cast along a sandy beach, rows of theater chairs etc. Different images, interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well.  Be creative - send us your best.
