"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930s. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city dweller interacts with his or her environment"

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

JUROR | ROBI CHAKRAVORTY

Originally from India, Robi Chakraborty studied photography under the prestigious O.P. Sharma at Triveni Kala Sangam Photography in New Delhi. He began his career doing both commercial and press photography in the early 1980s, but through wanderlust and with a spirit to explore, Robi became drawn to photographing the people in the cities and villages of his native India. Taking roads less traveled, Robi sought out cultures and ways of life that were quickly becoming lost in the contemporary, more homogenized world of today. 

Having lived in India, Nepal, Africa and the US, Robi portrays his global view of the world through his photography by celebrating both the diversity of his subjects yet beautifully revealing the striking similarities and capturing the humanity that we can all relate to.Recent awards include the Merit Award in All About Photo Magazine (July 2018), the Excellence Award in Black & White Magazine (June 2018) and Exhibitions at Gala awards in Barcelona and Faces at Budapest diary photography (2019).

WIDE OPEN 11

NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC MAY 9-JUNE 21,2020

We are excited to announce our eleventh annual national juried art show, Wide Open 11 opening May 9, 2020. This year we are privileged and delighted to have returning to BWAC as a juror one of New York’s very knowledgeable curators, Paulina Pobocha, of MoMA. With her guidance and selections, we look forward to another spectacular show.


Ours is a truly unique and generous space – a beautiful stone Civil War‐era warehouse overlooking New York Harbor from the piers of Red Hook, in Brooklyn NY. We welcome the opportunity to exhibit unusually large work, and look forward to exhibiting artwork from all around the country, work in all sizes, and subjects, and media. Virtually every medium is accepted including: Oil, Acrylic, Pastel, Watercolor, Photography, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Assemblage, Installation*, and Textile.

Call to Artists for Submissions:

Eligibility: This call for submission is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in all traditional and non‐traditional 2D and 3D media, *including film/video only when part of an Installation. Works may be submitted in one or multiple media. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. Limited edition prints/photographs are accepted. Artwork not meeting the criteria, although juried, may be rejected. Note: Kit work or reproductions of original works in other media (such as giclee prints of oil paintings), unless used as part of a mixed media work, will not be considered.

Submission Deadline: Early Bird: February 4, 2020; Final Application Deadline: March 2, 2020.

Gallery Exhibition Dates: Saturday May 9 – Sunday June 21, 2020; weekends 1‐ 6P.M.

Opening Reception: Saturday May 9, 2020 from 1 ‐ 6 P.M.

Theme:

The broad theme of Wide Open 11 encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love ‐ wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open ‐ but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite ‐ wide open to attack…corruption…failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore the idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.

About the Juror:

Paulina Pobocha is an Associate Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. She has written on and organized numerous exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, with a focus on art made after 1970. Prior to joining the curatorial staff of MoMA, Paulina was a Joan Tisch Fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY where she lectured on a broad range of subjects in contemporary and modern art.  She was appointed critic at the Yale University School of Art in 2011.
As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, Ms. Pobocha will be looking for how well that medium relates to the concept or movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. Her awards will reflect that artistic judgment.

Show Details

Transparent as Glass? Art Show: Glass has been created and used by mankind from the ancient Egyptians. It is only recently, since mid 20th century, that glass has been acknowledged as an art form.  It has wonderful physical properties - transparent or opaque - allowing one to see the illusion of space and depth, the constant play of positive and negative spaces.  This causes a magical flow within the art, embodying fun, playfulness, and the spiritual energy of nature.

BWAC is seeking original artwork from glass artists working all glass techniques – blown glass, kiln working, casting, flame, neon, stained glass, glass painting and glass etching. The theme is to reflect glass as an art which results in 2‐Dimensional or 3‐Dimensional work.

Some people believe that all photographs are, in fact, self-portraits, so if we expand that thinking, self is defined by our growing up and the people who shape our lives.

Photographers are mining those nearest and dearest for significant explorations of their personal histories and the result is an exciting and varied look at family. As participant observers, we document and at the same time, participate in familial worlds. Let us in and show us what is behind the front door.

Think literally and figuratively, monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for the Family is Aline Smithson. After a career as a New York Fashion Editor and working along side the greats of fashion photography, Aline Smithson discovered the family Rolleiflex and never looked back. An artist now represented by galleries in the U.S. and Europe and published throughout the world, Aline continues to create her award-winning photography with humor, compassion, and a 50-year-old camera


NYC4PA Call for Entry

NYC4PA DECAY CORROSION RUST 2019-20

  • | Start Date: 12/1/2019 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: NYC4PA

There are new shiny things all around us, but are they as interesting as an old rusted car, peeling paint on a run down building, or half fallen walls in a dilapidated castle.  There is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted... making those images more compelling and interesting than those of readily available brand new items! 

 

Consider the amazing textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory, 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.
