Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme | Landscapes Juror: Wendi Schneider

  • | Start Date: 10/1/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme: Landscapes | Juror: Wendi Schneider

“Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities; evidence of secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing - or of past emotional turbulence, loss, longing and regret.

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the landscape - both as a place, or an idea - as a literal expression or conceptual iteration. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

Theme: Don’t Make Me Laugh | Guest Curator: Laura Valenti
Spinning humor out of tragedy is by no means a new phenomenon. Humor and irony are an historic way of processing fear and tragedy.

Humor and absurdity provide a healthy outlet for some people to diffuse feelings of doom and uncertainty - helping people struggling with depression and anxiety of conflicts such as our current global pandemic and civic unrest.

"Human beings are wired to cope, and we're wired to be funny -- even darkly humorous."

"Using humor as a coping strategy and connecting with other people who have that same approach has been greatly normalized through the digitization of our culture," Andrews says. "Now, people who use humor as a coping strategy have instantaneous access to millions of other people, and we find our niches and networks." Bart Andrews

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore humor and irony in its varied styles including: candid moments, satire, dark humor, surreal, dry and deadpan just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

Yosemite Renaissance 37 - Call to Artists

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by Yosemite and the California Sierra Nevada region to display and promote their art. The exhibit opens at the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley, the travels to Kings Art Center in Hanford, Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock, and Yosemite Gateway Art Center in Oakhurst.

Awards

$4,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery.

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.

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 thousands of acres of rugged peaks, deep valleys, forests, 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. Yosemite Renaissance also encourages innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.


SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Black, White, Monochrome

  • | Start Date: 10/5/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 11/28/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

Monochrome photography, images produced with a single hue, rather than recording the colors of the object that was photographed. The SE Center is looking for all forms of Monochrome imagery, black-and-white and toned photography- all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Black, White & Monochrome, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

 

Our Juror for Black, White & Monochrome is Douglas Beasley. Douglas Beasley’s personal vision explores the spiritual and emotional aspects of people and place and is concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. 

After receiving a BFA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, he worked for several prominent commercial photo studios as a photo assistant and darkroom slave. Both helped him develop a appreciation for attention to detail and technical proficiency but left him longing for artistic self-expression. He then opened his own studio in Minneapolis, MN emphasizing commercial and editorial fashion. As a strong feminist, he considers himself the world’s most unlikely fashion photographer but greatly enjoyed the creativity and spontaneity of fashion photography. This evolved into shooting extensively throughout the country and internationally for various advertising, educational, public service and non-profit clients. Doug currently works on fine-art based commercial projects around the world.

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.

“She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” sang the Beatles

“Lookin’ Out My Backdoor” sang Creedence Clearwater Revival

 

Doors and windows and arches and frames and tunnels are so much a part of our lives. There are so many ways to think about them. We can look at them, or through them.  We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or just see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

 

For this call your images can focus on the "portal" itself like a closed door or a wonderful windowsill or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes.

Once again, we invite you to be creative and have fun in the process. 

As with all calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

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. 
  • InFocus and TCA are unable to accept works that are shipped.
  • Accepted works must remain in the exhibit through the show closing date.
  • Artists are encouraged to furnish an Artist’s Statement or Biography for our Artist’s Statement Binder.

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.
