The Road

The exhibition will survey the notion of the American Road. The road is an iconic theme that runs in some of the best and well known American photographers work such as Stephen Shore, Ed Ruscha, Alec Soth and many others . Photographers have traveled these vast landscapes and across thousands of miles to document this country and all that surrounds the road; the landscape, the gas stations, the motels, the diners and everything that comes by its side and its lifestyle.

We are looking for images that document the American road trip from various angles and photographic approaches. All photographic styles and genres are welcome but all images must have been taken within the U.S.

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.

ABSTRACTIONS

Loosen Art Project

Milan, Italy

Free Entry
Photographers are invited to submit 1 to 3 shots addressing the theme.
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.

GREY Call for Artists

Gray surrounds us, sometimes in surprising ways. In beach pebbles, a pair of smiling eyes, a kitten’s fur, and the cold embers of a fireplace. This neutral colour is cool, calming and timeless. But, it can also feel dull, drained, and emotionless. Grey can make other colours stand out. Grey can hide a story. Share your shades of GREY with words or imagery.

Connection – N.Y. Photo Curator

Adam Finkelston says, “I have been thinking a lot lately about how much DISconnection there is – from each other, from ourselves, but also specifically to artists and the subjects they choose. I have noticed a trend in young artists especially – and maybe this is because of their age and maybe the way art is taught in K-12 schools – that there is a distinct disconnect between the artist and their subject matter. I see a lot of artists – particularly young ones, but older artists too – that don’t seem to have any connection to what they are making. It’s all about the process or something that’s just “random” or maybe just commercial or popular, but it has no meaning or connection to their own lives. Or else, the subject matter has to DO with the disconnection they feel. Even in culture as a whole, I wonder if this rampant disconnection has to do with the lack of physical connections due to social media or the proliferation of ideas that people tend to want to copy or emulate a la Instagram, Etsy, and Pinterest, for example. I wonder if the disconnection is superficial and simply reflects an unwillingness to be open, vulnerable, and honest about themselves to the outside world? Perhaps it reflects the disconnection from truth or facts that is also part of the cultural landscape? Or is it deeper than that – a true disconnection from the world and themselves? I hope to see that there is still connectivity, openness, and honesty.

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.

 This call intends to collect works that address the theme of “home”, from its symbolic and conceptual conception to the exposition of an experience. “Home” as a concept linked to a safe and familiar environment, a refuge for our person, a social clothing that contains the warmth and energy of those who live there (q. M. McLuhan), or again, an environment that reflects our being in the world and the fluid changes of life, but also a place where we often find traces of the past, where emotional involvement is implicit in the experience we have in it.
