Mpls Photo Center Call for Entry

A View from Flyover Country

  • | Start Date: 2/20/2019 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 4/17/2019 11:59:00 PM (PT)

  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Mpls Photo Center

The Mpls Photo Center seeks submissions for: A View from Flyover Country. Jurored by Jim Brandenburg. Entry Submission CLOSES April 17.  First 3 Images: $25. The Mpls Photo Center will produce ALL Final Exhibit Selections at 16"X 20" (or Larger), at no Additional Cost to the selected Artists. Exhibition Opens May 17, 2019. On exhibit thru July 13, 2019.  

This competition and exhibition is looking for photographs that convey the realities of life in America’s great, sometimes overlooked heartland. "Flyover Country" refers to the part of our country between the East and West coasts that some Americans only view by air on transcontinental flights, and never actually see in person at ground level. The phrase is sometimes used pejoratively. Afterall, our now-interior states started out less a destination, and more a corridor to get even further West.  Our great industrial cities were built as hubs to somewhere else, a place where the rivers and the railroads met. Sprawling suburbs were built atop and between eradicated cornfields. Even today, coastal travelers often stop only to change planes, a fact that has cemented our identity as a place to be passed-over. Many of us prefer it that way. It keeps the riff-raff out. 

In this great Midwest, in the evenings when the last bit of light stretches across the prairie on the outskirts of every town, and later when the whistles of the coast-bound trains become part of the overnight soundscape, there is the sense that the rest of the world is moving, while we remain still. Over this entire landscape; the northwoods, the sand dunes, the tall-grass prairies, and the glacial moraines, everywhere you go in this great middle-place there is the continual sound of transit, of things passing thru. Travelers are made uncomfortable by our hauntingly open landscapes, where the seemingly endless fields and empty highways can illicit so much lonely wonder. The winters are dark and brutal, and at dusk on the horizon just the faintest glimpse of a sunset.

Please share your photographs with us.

Submitting Your Images: You can enter your images online at www.SmarterEntry.com For best results, submit your images at 5000 pixels on the longest side, (ideally a 20MB file or much LARGER, to ensure a proper enlargement at 16X20 inches at 280 PPI.) Please send the Highest Resolution JPEGS or TIFFS you can. For this competition, MPC will be printing the Select Exhibit images for YOU. You will not need to provide a print or framed image. We will send you the print after the Exhibit. We will collect shipping fees in the Final Selection round. Images should be in JPEG or TIFF format, sRGB color space. If you need help entering your images or are unable to, please contact info@mplsphotocenter.com or call: 612-643-3511.

Entry Fee: $25 USD per 3 images. Additional images: $10 each.  A total of 8 submissions allowed.

Eligibility:  All photographers of any age or location may enter. Black-and-white or color, analog, digital, iPhone or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

All images submitted must be those of the submitter. Please do not submit images previously selected for a Mpls Photo Center exhibition within two years of this scheduled exhibition. 

The Juror: Jim Brandenburg is an environmentalist, photographer and filmmaker based in Minnesota. His career includes 10 years as a newspaper photojournalist, and over 30 years as a contract photographer traveling the world for the National Geographic Magazine. His work has been included in many other magazines, such as Life, Newsweek, The Smithsonian, and GEO and has been featured on television and radio networks including ABC's Prime Time, CBS News Sunday Morning and Dateline NBC,as well as National Public Radio's All Things Considered.

In 1981 and 1983 he was named the Magazine Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association, and has won Pictures of the Year awards for his work in National Geographic. He was named Wildlife Photographer of the Year in 1988 by BBC Wildlife and the Natural History Museum.  The film documentary Chased by the Light: A Photographic Journey with Jim Brandenburg was nominated for an Emmy in the 2002-2003 awards.

Brandenburg's images were recently included in a collection that represents the 40 most important nature photographs of all time. The Top Forty nominations include the work of only 25 photographers including Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Eliot Porter. Four of Brandenburg’s images were included in the final selection, more than any other photographer. They were chosen by members of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) a fellowship of the world's top professional conservation photographers.

Exhibition Details: 25-30 Selected images will be on exhibit in the Mpls Photo Center’s new Gallery and headquarters for two (2) months. This special Exhibit Opening is timed to coincide with Minneapolis’s annual Art-A-Whirl event, a 3-day festival of art, food and music in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. The Mpls Photo Center anticipates over 10,000 visitors and art-lovers during the opening 3-day weekend!

Selections: The Juror selects the final number of images to be included in the exhibition.

Presentation: To avoid shipping costs and headaches, The Mpls Photo Center will print your Selected Exhibition Image at No Charge to you, on Premium Lustre archival exhibition paper.  Exhibition images will be approximately a 20” X 30” size; depending on the actual full-image format of your photograph. The MPC curator, in consultation with the Juror, may ELECT to print your image at 20 X 30 inches, or 40 X 60 inches for exhibition purposes. We are taking this step to assure the print quality of the images, as well as a consistency of size and final presentation of the overall themed presentation, A View from Fly-Over Country.

Environmental Impact is a curated exhibition with the goals of presenting a diversity of views and concerns for the environment, to engage viewers aesthetically and emotionally by delving deeper into this most relevant and challenging subject.

This exhibit will be defined by the quality, creativity, and diversity of ideas introduced by the participating artists. We anticipate that there will be artists presenting ideas that are positive and transformational and there are artists who will illustrate the consequences of human industry and activity.We are looking for artists who have a body of work dealing with these issues rather than just singular works with a minimum of 3 peices entered in this exhibition.

A tree grows in Brooklyn
Can't see the forest for the trees
Tangerine trees and marmalade skies
 
   There are references to trees all around us - in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual.
 
   Trees make up forests and jungles. They stand alone on hillsides creating lovely shadows. They 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 shade a child on a hot day; provide a sturdy posts to tie up the pet dog or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.
 
Send us your images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, roots….

SIERRA ART TRAILS 2019 - Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour - Friday, Saturday & Sunday, October 4-6, 2018

Welcome to Sierra Art Trails 2019, our 17th annual Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour. 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 www.sierraarttrails.org

The Beauty of Nature

The falling of snowflakes coming down
Making a blanket of white on the ground.
Autumn with red and gold-leaves,
Falling to the ground, in a cool breeze.
The rising of the sun of crimson,
A buzzing of the Bees,
As they go on their mission.
A cool-breeze blowing in the trees.
The beautiful- flowers of red, yellow, and blue.
The sparkling of grass, with morning-dew.
The sea is beautiful, with Blue-sky above.
The flying of sea-gulls and of doves.
The birds singing up in the trees,
As a gentle-wind blows the green-leaves.
Beautiful-butterflies going their way.
The beauty of nature, really make my day!

By Winifred Bullard
