Stories of the South

Ground Floor Gallery + Studios

Nashville, TN

Whether you are from the region itself or have passed through over time, the south has a way of embedding itself into ones memories. From its long history, quirky landmarks and vast changing landscape, the south is deeply rooted in tradition and American culture. While many people think the south wants to remain as it was, the “old south,” I have found that over the last decade the region is beginning to turn over a new leaf. This show is a chance for photographers to give viewers a taste of what the south looks like for them through their lens.

BLACK, WHITE & MORE

SE Center For Photography

Greenville, SC

When one “spells something out in black and white” what does that mean? Can a color photograph communicate that concept of “no ambiguity”?  When we see things in black and white can a color photograph describe a state of mind that won’t be changed? For sure, but so can a black & white image.

Chaos

Manifest Creative Research Gallery

Cincinnati, Ohio

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works about chaos, disorder or displacement.
The first and perhaps most common understanding of the word ‘chaos’ is that it is randomness, disorder, interference, or displacement. A more theoretical illustration is Chaos Theory, represented by the often over-simplified ‘butterfly effect’—the concept whereby a butterfly flapping its wings in one place on Earth can cause a hurricane in some far distant location (underlying order in otherwise apparent disorder, revealed through cause and effect.) Whether simple, or elegantly complex, the idea of chaos lends itself to reflection on personal life, patterns and effects of civilization now and over time, and on existence within the broader Universe. And of course it applies itself nicely to pure visual art expression, discovery, and creation as well.
Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme. This can include works that reflect how the concept pertains to people, ideas, animals, cultures, current political and social discourses, or even in the broader sense of displacement as an ever changing concept.
This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.

‘Forward the tradition’ international group exhibition

PH21 Contemporary Photography Gallery

Budapest,

The history of photography is the history of the continuous invention and renewal of the expressive repertoire of creative photographic communication. A number of genres rely on staging and directing, while straight photography and street photography seeks to create photographic meaning without prearranging the world in front of the camera. Some genres, such as portraiture and still life may incorporate both major approaches. We often identify the genre of the image just by looking at it, because we recognise the identifying features of the genre. For this exhibition we ask photographers to reflect on genres with photographic means. We are looking for photographs whose genre category is apparent by looking at the image, because of the creative use of the visual traditions of the genre. Experimental works that renew and challenge our understanding of photographic genres are also welcome.

Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed. The past continues to live in these forsaken, ruined, or empty spaces and we ask— Who were the people who lived and worked here? What were their lives like? What were their stories? What happened to them in these spaces?

‘The art of photography’ curated international photography exhibition

PH21 Contemporary Photography Gallery

Budapest,

Although photography first emerged as a technological invention, it was also quickly conceived as an artistic practice as well. Pictorialist photographs in the nineteenth century were created to look like paintings, while advocates of straight photography in the first part of the twentieth century strived for the purely photographic means of creating photographic meaning. Street photographers devoted the medium to capturing the fleeting moment, while in the last part of the twentieth century many photographers turned to staging and directing in order to utilize photography for artistic visual communication. Art photography also includes numerous genres and creative practices from portraiture, landscape and still life to abstract and conceptual photography. In this call we ask contemporary photographers to show how they understand art photography in the twenty first century.

MIRRORS AND REFLECTIONS

Loosen Art Project

Caligari,

Take part in the Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. 2019

FREE ENTRY Photographers are invited to submit 1 to 3 shots addressing the theme

As the title of this call says, the works collected on the occasion of the next LoosenArt collective will expose a theme that has always been subject to interpretations: the mirror, a means of symbolic and conceptual connotations through which the artists of the past have conveyed analytical and metaphorical meanings.

From the reflection of Caravaggio’s “Narcissus” to Pistoletto’s shattered mirrors, these are just some of the examples that testify of a continuum in the history of art in reflecting on the very concept of “reflection”, a further confirmation of the intrinsic nature of the creative act, that of the exposition of the self and of our perception of the world, interior and exterior, through the execution of the artwork that becomes the mirror of the self.

Transitions and displacements are the objects of reflection for our call. The concept of the two terms is a recall to the “liquid” vision of contemporary philosophy. Transitions, displacements, mutations of condition are the prerogatives of a fluid approach to reality, prerogatives of a free change in the state of things that allows full organic adherence to the environment and to the context in which each subject / object is immersed .
The works that will take part in the exhibition will represent an excursus on the subject, addressed both from a physical, chemical and biological poin of view and from a social, cultural and political one.

Encaustic Workshop

A Smith Gallery

Johnson City, TX

Encaustic in its most basic interpretation means hot melted wax applied to an absorbent surface. Encaustic is typically bees wax mixed with damar resin and pigments. It has been used as a painting medium since Greek and Roman times.  It was used to decorate warships, marble statues and eventually as a fine art medium for painting portraits on wooden panels. Painting with encaustic has continued through the ages and has relatively recently been discovered by photographers. The application of encaustic to digital pigment prints transcends the photographic process adding depth, luminescence and providing the opportunity for greater artistic expression.

Group Exhibition in Berlin or Rome city. May 2020

“Abstraction”, from the Latin “abstractio”, is the process of thought for which an element is isolated from all the others to which it was connected and is considered as a particular object of research, the same procedure that tends to separate the essential qualities of an object to obtain the universal concept about that.

We find a procedural peculiarity in the expressive language adopted in the twentieth century with the artists who interpret abstract art, where the separation operation is carried out with the intention of exalting that still too unknown side of the human being: emotionality and perceptions subjective of reality. It is thus that form becomes the result of the encounter between man and the world, in an alternation of empathy, of getting closer to reality and escaping from it.
