In lieu of our usual summer greeting NYC4PA invites you to celebrate summer with an special call for entry this year.   The theme, simply and naturally, is "SUMMER".  Any images that represent summer to you are welcome.   For those in the northern hemisphere summer is from June through September and in the southern hemisphere November through March.  Whichever months your summer spans it is the season of long days, warm temperatures, swimming, beaches, lakes, pools, and street hydrants splashing.  It is also the season of charitable summer camps for inner city youth and temporarily halted school romances.  As you can see the scope is broad from sun tanning and baseball to kids making the best of it in city streets and bathing suits drying on the line. How do you capture summer?

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

AMERICA NOW F-Stop Group Show 2018

  • | Start Date: 8/20/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 3
  • | Host: Mpls Photo Center
Dear F-Stoppers.
It seems like summer is going by at record speed. I have been traveling to make photographs of what America Now looks like to me. In addition to my wandering around in Minnesota, we just got back from a trip to Montana and a brief stop in North Dakota.

I photographed a Demolition Derby in Livingston Montana, photographed Indians from Canada at the Little Big Horn and many tourists at Yellowstone. There were some small town portraits and tourists vs. buffalo at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Thinking about this idea of America Now, it's very opened-ended. There is a polarization of our political ideas but the people I photographed were just busy raising families and living their lives. There were a lot of foreign tourists at Yellowstone just being tourists.  I guess America is always in a state of transition and the pendulum of politics is always swinging.

I think whatever you are photographing this summer in your cities, lakes, forests, and towns will work in our theme, it is so inclusive. 
This competition is Open to all F-Stop Members and participants that have been attending monthly meetings at the Mpls Photo Center over the past 2 years.  Please submit up to 3 photographs online for consideration, by October 10, and Sally and I will select one of your images that works best for this exhibit.
Opening Reception at the Mpls Photo Center Friday, November 9!

Sincerely,

Tom Arndt

SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Natural Nude

  • | Start Date: 8/21/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 11/4/2018 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.

This year we are celebrating the natural nude- the figure in the environment, whether natural or man made. We are not looking for classic studio work but we are looking for photographers who can make a statement. Stop us in our tracks and make us see more in the image.

 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 Kim Weston. Kim Weston is a fine art photographer from California who specializes in nude photography. Weston was born to one of the most influential and creative families in American history and has been making fine-art nude photographs for over 35 years. Kim learned his craft assisting his father, Cole Weston, in the darkroom making gallery prints from the original negatives of his grandfather, Edward Weston. Kim also worked for many years as an assistant to his uncle, Brett Weston, whose bold, abstract photographs ranked him as the "child genius of American photography."

As photographers we know about the dramatic change in photography that came about when color film was introduced.  For both portraits and scenics hand coloring was no longer necessary and over time color images joined black and white as fine art.

This call is NYC4PA's homage to those images where all the emotion, texture and beauty are expressed in shades of Black and White. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x or with a digital SLR, if the end product is a terrific Black and White, it fits the call.  Sepia will be accepted.

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.

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by nature and the American wilderness to display and promote their art. The exhibit opens at the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley, then travels to other art centers across California.

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, 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 hundreds of thousands of acres of rugged peaks, deep valleys, forests, chaparral, deserts, 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.

One of the goals of Yosemite Renaissance is to encourage innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.

Awards

$5,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery.

Our juror for Monochrome is Michael Foley. He opened his NYC Foley Gallery in the fall of 2004 after fourteen years of working with notable photography galleries including Fraenkel, Howard Greenberg and Yancey Richardson.

His personal art making practice is equally inspired by photography, collage, cut paper and painting.  In 2006, he brought artists within these disciplines to the list of exhibiting gallery artists. Foley went on to co-found The Exhibition Lab in the fall of 2009.  The Ex Lab is a study center for people involved in various aspects of fine art photography. 

Foley continues his interest in educating by serving on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts and the International Center of Photography where he teaches and lectures on issues in contemporary photography.

5-40 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, the SE Center announces the SE Center Purchase Award. One image, from those selected for inclusion in the exhibition, may be purchased from the artist for inclusion in the SE Center's collection.
