“portal”

A Smith Gallery

Johnson City,, TX

portal : doorway, entrance, opening, entry, gate, egress, opening, aperture, porte, exit, hatch, mirror, passage, threshold, cut, entrada, hole, scuttle, window, approach, camera, breach, mirror….

Portals have been sought as long as man has been man: real and imagined.

A lecturer in art history expressed that the painter Paul Gauguin sought a portal into the home of his artistic daemon by traveling to Tahiti. She defined the word daemon as: a supernatural being whose nature is intermediate between that of a god and that of a human being. Many of her students were frightened, many were intrigued. Some began painting.

–scapes

PH21 Gallery

Budapest,

There are all sorts of natural and artificial scenes that capture the attention of photographers, compel and inspire them to pause, observe and create an image for the sake of the scene and convey a personal interpretation of what they see. These types of photographs go by a variety of names; they are called landscapes, cityscapes, streetscapes, seascapes, waterscapes, cloudscapes, or even desertscapes, treescapes, bodyscapes, and the like. Among these photographs the most successful ones go well beyond the mere recording of the visual qualities of a place as they bear the marks of the interpretive insights of the photographer. They make us contemplate a scene as meaningful and significant. For it is never challenging to merely re-present; it takes a novel conception of the scene to engage us, viewers, through the keen eyes and the creative mind of the photographer.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed –scapes. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this subject and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, as the photographic portrayal of scenes of the natural and built environment is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

Privilege and Consequence

Colorado Photographic Arts Center

Denver, CO

“Privilege always leads to consequences. Over the course of history, the few have always guided the ideals of the masses. Currently, we live in a society that is governed and policed by corporations and their advertisements. This exhibition will focus on the disparate advantages of the few and the palpable consequences of those actions on the masses. While basing our exhibition along the history of art, we will take a contemporary look at how art and photography fight against the status quo.” — Kris Graves, Exhibition Juror.

L.A. Photo Curator – What lies Ahead?

CURATOR: Susan Spiritus

Susan says, “As we cautiously emerge from a year and a half of ‘almost’ hibernation, we do so with great care, some serious worries and many unknowns.

What lies ahead?

It’s very much like the question of is the glass half full or half empty?
Is there a light at the end of this tunnel, if so, what is it? What do you see?
What lies ahead?”

“unique: alternative processes”

A Smith Gallery

Johnson City,, TX

Photography started as a chemical experiment. However, the acknowledged inventor of the process, Thomas Wedgwood, was the son and grandson of famous English potters. His entire life he was surrounded by artists, creators. Wedgwoods pals were William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. So, it is not unusual or unexpected that creative folks have taken his work and run with it. For many photographers it’s about the camera, for others it’s about what can be birthed once it leaves the thing and for others it is the possibility of making images that are miraculous orphans.

Open Theme

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

“When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo – symmetry, or color or contrast – and it’s my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.” Connor Franta

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance – be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict – of fiction or fact – or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The Contemporary Portrait

SE Center For Photography

Greenville, SC

The Portrait. We use portraits as objects of remembrance and reverence, of seduction and glorification. From the keepsakes in lockets as tiny remembrances of love, to the likenesses of leaders meant to inspire and seduce with their power. They can stir, and confront, and drive us to action. Just as they can lull in longing for a time since passed. They act as a mirror in whose reflection we find the inward experiences of ourselves, or as a window from which we look out toward the virtues of another.

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 are welcome.

Flora and Fauna

South x Southeast Magazine

Molena, GA

There’s a lot to be worried about it seems, but I’m mostly worried we aren’t paying attention to the one thing that makes everything else possible – Mother Nature. Our Earth. The big blue orb that so generously gives and gives and gives.

So, this Call for Entry is about Flora & Fauna. What we as humans cannot destroy and then recreate. The plants and animals we cannot live without yet we often treat so cavalierly. Let’s remind ourselves of their gifts. Because Earth is our host, we are merely the guests. And it’s time we started behaving better.

The December/January issue of South x Southeast magazine will be devoted to Mother Nature. And 10 photographers from this show will be featured in this issue.

The exhibition will also hang on the walls of the gallery, and on the gallery website during the months of December and January. All work will be for sale.
