  • | Fee: $25.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Mpls Photo Center

This geographically unique Exhibition is open to all photographers. The exhibit theme is: NordEast.  Please submit up to 10 images for consideration. B&W or Color or Digital Art. Our most-excellent juror, Jon Oulman (the de facto Mayor of Northeast Minneapolis) will be selecting the images for exhibit in our Jefferson Gallery for debut post-COVID19 threat.   The Call for Entry submissions CLOSE at midnight on Sunday, April 26. The selection/judging process is done on-line at very high-resolution, in random order, and is blind/anonymous. 

MPC will award honors for Best of Show, 1st Runner-up, and 3rd Place with Cash Prizes of $150, $100, and $50 respectively, and a 3-month MPC Membership gratis, for all three winners.

The Theme: NordEast

"NorthEast Minneapolis. Widely dubbed "NordEast". And the new home of the Mpls Photo Center.

The coveted, mildly edgy neighborhood that somehow just exudes authentic and cool and art, and boasts "the great-white way" of NE dive bars, featuring real people wielding $3 highballs and ice cold PBRs.  All in a tidy stretch from Marshall to Johnson, and St. Anthony Parkway to Hennepin Avenue.

It is a place... but more-so a state of mind. Great neighborhoods like this stew and evolve and congeal over time, and you can't rush it and you sure can't plan it. Dripping with ethnicity and eccentricity, this urban sprawl is home to a boatload of great musicians, artists, restauranteurs, hipsters, grandmas, hard-workin' Joes, and hangers-on.

We know who we are, and we can spot the pretenders coming half-way across the Lowry bridge. But we'll always give you a chance to visit and play nice. Afterall, we have our own beer named after us, and it is mighty tasty, and decidedly NOT an IPA.

There's a de facto mayor of this little pocket of goodness, and he cuts hair pretty good, LOVES photography, and has been presenting great music and righteous cocktails for years  on the little corner of grunge he's staked out at University & 13th. You'd know him as Jon (no H) the 331 guy. He'd like to see your favorite photographs of our lovely neighborhood so we can hang them here at the Mpls Photo Center during Art-A-Whirl.

We're expecting alot of images from this very competitive creative community, and have room for only 50. So he's got a tough job, but we're confident he will acquit himself honorably.

So resurrect that old sleeve of negatives you saw in your sock drawer last month, or for God's sake pull your digital files together, or better yet shoot something new and show us your take on YOUR NordEast.

Weird wins."

Timeline:

All photographers selected for exhibit will be notified which of their image(s ) are included in the show by Email by April 30.  All exhibiting artists will be honored and featured here at the MPC Galleries. The reception is FREE and Open to the Public. We expect you will invite all your family and friends to this prestigious event.

The Opening Reception for the NordEast exhibit is TBD.

We are excited about the potential for an excellent exhibit, and a wonderful showcase for the talented and passionate photographers of NorthEast Minneapolis, the Twin Cities and beyond.

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, air planes, and rockets pushing skyward.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

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. 

Our juror for Architectural Photography is Michael Pannier. Michael Pannier is an award winning professional fine art and commercial photographer now located in Greenville, SC. Previously based in Maryland, Michael has spent 30 years in photography, 20 years in the gallery and art world. Michael is represented in galleries across the country, a frequent exhibition juror and curator, portfolio reviewer and speaker on the business of fine art photography. When not in South Carolina he can be found leading photographic expeditions in Death Valley and the Eastern Sierra.

35-40 selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month.

ARTRAGEOUS 2020

  • | Start Date: 3/18/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 5/12/2020 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $20.00 USD per 3
  • | Host: Visual Arts Guild of Frisco

As you may know by now, some City of Frisco closures and cancellations are in effect due to Frisco’s declaring a public health emergency related to the coronavirus (COVID_19).  This has caused some difficulties in regards with our next Art Exhibition Show ARTRAGEOUS 2020. Though we are very hopeful that by the scheduled June date everything will be back to normal, there is a chance that we might have to proceed with a different plan. First and most important: If the City of Frisco is still under shelter at home regulations on a “to be determined date”, we have decided to proceed with the exhibition in an online format. In other words, the show will not be cancelled. It will instead be changed to hold the exhibition virtually. 

 

The VAGF takes seriously the safety and well-being of our artists, board of directors and community. We know how significant the impact of the COVID_19 has been and that the unforeseen cancellations of art events have really hurt professional artists. We still want to provide you with more exposure, so as a member of the VAGF, your submission for Artrageous 2020 will be free of charge regardless of whether we hold it live or online (note: discount code is emailed to VAGF members).

Here is the timeframe and information for the show that you will need to know:

1.-Free Submissions for members are now Open.

2.-Submission Deadline: May 12, 2020

3.-Acceptance: May 17 – 20, 2020

4.- Announcement of whether the Show will be Live or Virtual will be included with the acceptance notifications. 

5.- Take In date if the show is live: May 31, 2020

 

If the live show is cancelled, the following will be how the virtual show will be handled (with some decisions still to be made).

  1. The take in of the physical paintings will be cancelled.
  2. A display of the Artists and their work will be presented as a virtual exhibition. The artist will have a chance to share it in their social media as well.
  3. It is a Juried Exhibition so an announcement of the Jurors Awards will be in a special section of the virtual display showing the work of the artists selected. Date to be announced
  4. The exhibition will be shared through our VAGF Website, Facebook page, Instagram and YouTube channel as well as other groups that advocate for the arts.

GUIDELINES

All submitted works should be ready-to-hang with wire taut at the upper fourth of the frame. Saw hook hanging will not be accepted. All works on  1/2” canvases should be framed. All the works on 1” to 2” canvases need to have neatly painted edges if not framed. Multi-unit works must be connected so that they can be hung / displayed as a single unit.

If the sculpture is big and heavy and not designed to be displayed on the floor we encourage the artist to provide a pedestal for display of the artwork. 

The show will be curate by one or more visual art professionals. There will be awards for top choices in the various categories.

VAGF retains 30% commission from all sales generated through the show.

Please stay safe and creative and we hope to see you all soon.

Contact us at info@vagf.org if you have any questions.

NYC4PA FROM A SEED...A WORLD OF BOTANICALS

  • | Start Date: 2/9/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 5/13/2020 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: NYC4PA

Growing up in NYC each of us had the opportunity to experience the wonderful world of botanicals at both the New York and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.  We had the opportunity to develop an early appreciation for the variety of life that starts with a seed, much of it in spectacular greenery and flowers bursting with color.  

Though seeds can be tiny and come in an envelope at the nursery, large and found in the center of a fruit, or black and found in a watermelon; they all hold the promise to become glorious botanicals.

With spring approaching in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern, capture your unique view of favorite flowers, trees in bloom, variegated leaf patterns, vines etc. in gardens, at the beach, on your window sill, or in the rain forest.

As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

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 https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/

Light and it's quality is the basic elment of photography. Thre is an icomic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the air space as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another.  Sunsets are beautiful and midday sun is harsh.  A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits; late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches. 

For this call we are looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference.  Glare, flare, shadow, fill light all work as do lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, streaming rays of sunlight on a floor or as seen through a dusty atmosphere. There are examples everwhere.  Show us your shots where light is the key element.  All 2D photo mediums are welcome.
