Partridge in a pear tree

Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree

 

There are references to trees in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual as a standalone item next to the house in a children’s drawing or in groups of every size from oases to huge forests.

 

In the forest and the jungle they create whole environments. Standing alone on hillsides they create lovely shadows. Trees can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will support a tire swing for a child on a hot day; provide sturdy posts to tie up the pet pup or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.  In winter snow covered trees create beautiful landscapes.

Rules

  • Accepted art must be the same as submitted online.
  • Show administrators reserve the right to reject a photograph when delivered to the show site if the photograph does not appear to be the same as the digital photograph submitted online or the matting and framing is unacceptable.
  • Every precaution will be taken to protect the artwork. However, InFocus and Tuolumne County Arts (TCA) will not be responsible for loss or damage to art entered in the show.
  • Accepted works must be submitted in framed or finished condition. Plastic or “fast” frames are not acceptable. Canvas wraps, metal or glass prints are not required to be placed in frames.  
  • Photos must have picture-hanging wire firmly attached across the back. Wires must be taut and placed between 1/3 and 1/4 the height of the frame from the top of the frame. Sharp wire ends must be taped. Canvas, metal and glass prints need wires or acceptable hanging systems (see photos below). Saw tooth, styrofoam or alligator hanging systems are not acceptable. 
  • The maximum width of an image is 34 inches measured on the outside edge of the frame. The maximum overall framed size is 60 inches, which is determined by adding the outside-framed height, plus the outside framed width together. For example, a 16"x20" print in a frame might measure 19"x23" when measured from outside edge to outside edge. Add 19"+23" to determine the overall framed size which, in this example, is 42".  
  • Photos may not weigh more than 12 lbs. 
  • Works that have been selected for the show must be hand delivered to Angelos Hall during the check-in period. If you are unable to deliver or pick up on the designated dates please make arrangements prior to deadlines.

  • Works that have been hung in the show must be picked up on Sunday, March 20, 2022 at Angelos Hall between 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. or by arrangement. Bring your receipt to claim your photos. Photos that are not picked up during these hours will be taken to the Tuolumne County Arts office and may be picked up there by arrangement. Any photos not picked up within 14 days will be considered a gift to TCA and may be used at their discretion. TCA does not accept responsibility for any damages that might occur in transporting.

Field Assignment | Creating A Personal Shrine

Altar, Shrine, Memento - These terms are often used interchangeably. They may be as simple as a tiny matchbox or a Sacred Circle — or as elaborate as the Taj Mahal. Altars and Shrines have been created in nearly every culture and place where humans have lived. On a very personal level, they may be about solitude, reflection, and memory, but they may also be whimsical or even gaudy. The trappings of mourning and loss are the external representations and expressions of interior dialogues, offering a tangible form to our thoughts and memories - NYX

Praxis Gallery seeks artwork from Artist Members using an “Altoids” tin box as the basis for a shrine  containing artifacts, objects, photos, lens-based and collage art (just to name a few possibilities). All interpretations of this tin can shrine concept are welcome.  Artists are asked to submit photos of their shrine by the deadline. Eighteen shrines (the physical object) will be selected  to be shipped to Praxis for exhibit.

SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Conversations with the Archive

  • | Start Date: 12/2/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 1/30/2022 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

For the call for Conversations with the Archive, we are looking for work using historical, familial, or found photographs (or ephemera) to create a new visual language or expression. This reconsideration of other people's photographs, whether it be from a family album or a dusty thrift store bin, allows the creator to appropriate, construct, edit, and sequence in order to create something entirely new--sometimes in conversation with the photographer's own imagery, or sometimes as an artistic expression using only appropriated imagery.

Our juror for Light is Aline Smithson. Aline Smithson is a visual artist, educator, and editor based in Los Angeles, California. Best known for her conceptual portraiture and a practice that uses humor and pathos to explore the performative potential of photography. Growing up in the shadow of Hollywood, her work is influenced by the elevated unreal.

n 2007, Smithson founded LENSCRATCH, a photography journal that celebrates a different contemporary photographer each day. She has been the Gallery Editor for Light Leaks Magazine, a contributing writer for Diffusion, Don’t Take Pictures, Lucida, and F Stop Magazines.

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.


Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme | THE STILL LIFE

  • | Start Date: 1/1/2022 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 1/31/2022 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

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

Women ‘Camera Operators’ - Photographers & Female Sight

Guest Curator: Ellen Carey

As women “camera operators” (a 19th century term for photographers), aren’t we all struck by light?

Since the beginnings of photography in the mid-nineteenth century, women have had prominent roles as artists. The popularization of the medium in the first decades of the twentieth century met with a confluence of social forces, including art and activism, that expanded opportunities for women in both art and public life. Working in a range of styles, pioneering artists like Anna Atkins, Imogen Cunningham, and Berenice Abbott forged independent perspectives that changed how we picture the world. [CMOA]

Since the beginning, female identifying artists - especially women of color - have been underrepresented in the photographic gallery space. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women who identify as ‘image-makers.’ This open themed call invites submissions from all women, including trans women and femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

THE HUMAN BODY

Lately there has been much focus on human body, in all aspects of our life, from the spiritual to the everyday.  What can you show in public, what can’t you show? How do we decorate our body, from tattoos to nail polish?  Should we fix a nose, a large tummy, and do we want to pierce our noses, ears, lips, navels?  How long should we let our hair grow?

For this call the focus is on bodies – from head to toe, in and out of focus, as a well-lit image or silhouette, dressed or undressed. 

Please no sexually explicit images; nudes are just fine.

Linda Erfle explores the essence of her subjects through the unifying elements of value, shape, edges and color; striving to convey how truly extraordinary the ordinary is which surrounds us. Possessing a long-time interest in art, Linda has had the opportunity to seriously focus on painting since the early 90’s, applying watercolor or oil to render paintings in a representational style.

DECAY, CORROSION, RUST...

 

I got a brand new pair of roller of roller skates,

you got a brand new key

 

So sang Melanie. Though we often focus on the new and shiny there is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted and it can make images of those items so much more compelling and interesting.

 

Consider the textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory or prison, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard.  Neighborhoods, disparagingly called "run down", are treasure troves of "decayed" tumble down houses, "corroded" discarded toys, "rusted" cars, trash cans and so on. 

 

Decay, Corrosion, Rust.... can take many forms; black and white, color, abstract - all photographic media are welcome.

Inspired by many, many artists, she combines her background in watercolor with pastels to capture the nuance of light and place, and interpret impressions of the man-made and nature-made worlds.
