DREAMS 2019


 

Gallery 25N is seeking a single artist for a solo exhibit that will have extensive worldwide marketing and an art grant.  The curator for this exhibit will be Edward Burke, artist, creator and teacher. A single artist’s artwork based on dreams, will be selected for this online exhibit.  The artist  work must be accessible online for the curator’s review and selection. The selected artist must provide an artist’s statement of their work. Submissions can be of any subject and expressed style or technique from representational to abstract.

The exhibiting artist will also receive a “Christopher E. Burke Fine Art Grant” of $300. That artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online marketing.

Theme and Selection:
Dreams are windows into what might be called a “substitute” reality that we all experience. Reflections upon our dreams can have a fleeting effect or a significance that may haunt us for a lifetime. The visual artist can offer the viewer, a connection to themselves, through their art.  The artist has this opportunity to present a dream as a hazy filtered reality from representational memories to an explosion of abstract and surrealistic imagery—all of which may be emotionally treasured as his or her own.

Personal Narrative

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

 

One of the greatest challenges for any artist is to depict deeply personal details about their lives, perspectives and experiences in the world. Whether an artist expresses these attributes via vast landscapes, captured moments or happenstance findings, the result conveys an authentic universality that connects every viewer on some level. At their best, these connections seem to arise from some collective unconscious that we all share, even across generational, gender and cultural divides.

For Personal Narrative, we seek images that suggest this collective unconscious. All capture methods and processes are welcome.

Glitch

PH21 Gallery
Budapest, Hungary

 

All mental and physical processes are subject to errors, and photographic creative and technical processes are no exception to this rule. Photographers may carefully plan their compositions, but even the most thoroughly constructed situations might surprise us with some unforeseeable element. Analogue and digital technical processes are also prone to errors that modify the image in unexpected ways. Some types of glitches occur spontaneously, while others are intentionally prompted by using equipment or technology that randomly or systematically produces them. A glitch may occur in the theme, the production method or in the material of the image as well, and it could be present in the picture or in the viewer’s eye. In this call we understand glitches in a wide sense, ranging from the unexpected in the process of composing images to the technological errors that modify the final image in all sorts of intended or unintended ways.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Glitch. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this theme, and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, as glitches may occur at all points of the creative and technical processes of photography. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

The Sublime Landscape

Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center
Minneapolis, MN

 

Juror | Laura Valenti

The sublime landscape is defined as having the quality of such greatness, magnitude or intensity, whether physical, metaphysical, moral, aesthetic or spiritual, that our ability to perceive or comprehend it is temporarily overwhelmed. According to aesthetic philosophy, sublime landscapes can include any of five visual components: 1) great ideas, 2) passion, 3) the appropriate use of figures, 4) the right aesthetic diction, and 5) a skillful composition.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic artwork that explores the many iterations of this idea. We encourage a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the sublime landscape.

All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

F L O R A

Southeast Center for Photography
Greenville, South Carolina

 

We’re looking for flora, all types from a single stem to a vast landscape, still life, formal gardens, or vegetation gone wild. Color or monochrome, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for Flora is Kate Breakey. Kate is known for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs, which often feature luminous representations of birds, flowers, animals, and insects. Beginning with a silver photographic image, she paints over this with many transparent layers of oil, melding together different media. Breakey also creates works with the simple outlines of photograms—invented by William Fox Talbot in the 1830s—and ones that relate to 19th-century botanist Anna Atkins’ cyanotypes and Imogen Cunningham’s and Edward Weston’s 1920s plant and shell photographs. Concerned with the themes of death in nature and the preservation of beauty through photography, Breakey wants to “tenderly record the beautiful bodies now in transition towards decomposition and disintegration,” as she says.

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. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina’s First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.

CorpoRealities

PH21 Gallery
Budapest,

 

The human body, in full or in part, is often in the focus of various photographic genres. From documentary, event and street photography to fashion photography and the nude, photographers have always found ways of constructing images in which the specific portrayal of the human body gains significance. This may be stemming from the rich layers of meanings determined and shaped bythe specific socio-cultural context of the image, the visual interaction of the human body with the surrounding physical space, or the intriguing compositional possibilities offered by the body itself. When focussing on the body, some photographers explore movements, study expressive gestures and postures, or concentrate on the beauty and details of the human anatomy. Some narrate whole life stories through the depiction of the human body. Others may offer stern visual criticism of our normative conceptions of the human body and its mainstream representation in Western media.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed CorpoRealities. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this subject, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed without any photographic genre restrictions. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme. This exhibition will be presented in the new PH21 Gallery Project Room.

One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. The juror’s choice receives three free entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.)

WOMEN’S STORIES – UNTOLD

Midwest Center for Photography
Witchita, Kansas

 

Many women have a different story, though, the nature of each story is founded in similarity; women being tired of having to carry the secrets of their stories. Instead, courageously deciding to share their stories with the world. This exhibition seeks to give a voice to those who have survived the trauma of tragedy. Whether feeling marginalized, treated unequally, being simply ignored and overlooked, harassed, physically assaulted, verbally abused, or having experienced profound loss. These stories should be told, stories of experience in a domestic setting or in the workplace. Not only stories of dark experiences but the experiences of triumph and strength. The exhibition will consist of photographic imagery and/or words. Both photographs and text pieces will be printed and exhibited on the gallery walls. The stories shared can range from subtle expressions to bold statements, of your own experience or of someone you know who has experienced such tragedy. The gallery space acts as a platform for women to use their voices through images and/or text in an act of healing and strength.

RED 2019


 

Art-Competition.net is proud to announce the international art call for an exhibition and Fine Art Grant “Red 2019“.

The curators are looking for artwork that reflects an artist’s interpretation of a subject or theme enhanced through the use of the color red.  The extent of this application has no required parameters; the choice rests within the artist’s vision. Colors often symbolize a variety of emotions, an artist’s truth, perhaps wild fantasies—from war, power, heat, love, sexuality, anger, and joy to “soft” idealisms—these are but a few examples.   Red, in particular here, can be used to draw the viewer closer emotionally in a way which enhances their reaction to the art. It may define intuitively an intended focal point that carries the viewer more deeply into the artist’s message.

N.Y. Photo Curator – ‘The Environment & Social Activism’- curated by Morgan Post (Professor of Photography at Long Island University, NY)


 

Morgan Post says:
“Photography is a powerful tool for depicting injustices around the world.  One of the many great injustices we face, is our very impact on the planet.

We live in a critical time where our relationship with the planet is at a breaking point.  We remove resources from the ground, pollute the air and water, destroy plants and wildlife all for the sake of our comfort and what humanity has generally chosen to call “progress,” at least until recently.

However, I believe in standing up and fighting. Fighting for change, fighting for action, fighting for innovation, fighting for legislation.  It is time to discard the doctrine of Manifest Destiny which has driven us toward thinking the planet was just something to use up as fast as possible, with the notion that we’ll always find a new resource to exploit.

Seeking such change is our responsibility and indeed our obligation to ourselves and future generations.  The theme for this call for photographs goes hand in hand with this attitude.  We all need to be activists towards protecting our environment.

Activism takes social change and awareness of who and what is causing the destruction.  Creating visual records of our actions for change that are positive, or the inaction showing the further destruction of our planet are both equally important.  Every single person has the power to say something meaningful about social and environmental change.

How would you change the world?”

“It appears to be a law that you cannot have a deep sympathy with both man and nature.”

Contemporary Landscape

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

 

Until the mid-20th century, landscape photographers tended to focus on the natural landscape, with an eye toward pristine beauty untainted by the hand of humanity. Increasingly, perhaps because the presence of man is so widely evident, landscape photographers have sought to balance the natural beauty of the land with the imprint of humanity’s presence. That balance of man and nature on the land is the subject of this call for entries. All capture and processing methods are welcome, and we encourage your own interpretations of the idea of Contemporary Landscape.

About Future

Loosen Art Project
Milan, Italy

 

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

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

“Future” as a concept connected to the world of ideas, the ones which envisage the events, that invent new realities – fantastic or science fiction, or those that if adaptable to the real world, through the means and will to implement them, end up shaping the environment in which the living being is immersed.

It is particularly in this sense that artistic practices (or activities that give rise to sensory experiences through aesthetic products) have always played a fundamental role in the development and progress of civilization.

In the next exhibition entitled “About Future”, we will collect works that are able to offer new visions on the future, through expressive methods that engage both the traditional use of the photographic media and that of digital manipulation.

F O R G O T T E N

Southeast Center for Photography
Greenville, South Carolina

 

The Forgotten, people, places and belongings that once mattered, that have been left behind. Things once being of importance to humans …personal items, homes, special places, letters, etc.  Anything that has been left behind or replaced. Any object, being, place or property that once had the importance to another.

Our juror for Forgotten is Jeff Rich.   Jeff Rich’s work focuses on water issues ranging from recreation and sustainability to exploitation and abuse. He explores these subjects by using long-term photographic documentations of very specific regions of the United States. Jeff received his MFA in photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. Jeff’s project “Watershed: A Survey of The French Broad River” was awarded the 2010 Critical Mass Book Award, and was published as a monograph in 2012.

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. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina’s First Fridays, a celebration of art, food, and music.

TRANSCENDENCE: A Call for Works About Going Beyond the Normal

Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio

 
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works about going beyond the ordinary.
Consider work that addresses the idea of Transcendence as a subject, rather than an aspect of the ambition, dedication, and rigor of the artist themselves? How does visual art represent, either through subject, form, or content, a notion which, in some form or another, underlies much of human introspection and civilized activity since our earliest days as a species?
Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. 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.

Manifest Gallery: 8th International Photography Annual


 

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works that incorporate the lens or photographic process in some significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.

INPHA is open to a very broad range of lens-based and photographic submissions. This is not just for ‘photographers’ and ‘photography’ but also for anyone working creatively in a visual art (or design) field with work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in some significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.
As with all Manifest projects, we are open to learning just what’s being done that fits within this broad scope.
