Call for Art

Phillips Mill Photographic Exhibition

New Hope, PA

Perennial Theme / “Photography as Art”, “Photographer as Artist”. Seeking imagery through a body of work each artist considers personal, gratifying and artistically complete. The prestigious non-profit show, in its 27th year, has re-branded itself and created a sophisticated digital overlay. Our re-focused goal is to generate extended exposure for serious photographic artists. All this emanating from a re-purposed historic stone gristmill designed for presentation. Phillips Mill is the birthplace of the Arts Movement in the Delaware River Valley ninety years ago.

Grey

Grey 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

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.

The Road

South x Southeast Photo Gallery

Molena, Georgia

Unlike painters, all photographers drive – They’ve got to get to their subjects.– Walter Hopps, The Dream Colony
The theme is not about just the automobile but how the automobile changed photography – Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, Alec Soth. The first solo photography exhibition at MOMA in 1938 – Walker Evans – American Photographs – featured mainly images Evans made on the road – driving across the country with a camera.
The automobile changed the course of photography.
So photographing from the road, the automobile, summer, road trips, mobility, travel, roadside, freedom, vacation, memory – want to stay away from nostalgia although really hard with the theme of the exhibition.

In the next exhibition the figure of the performer will be our gaze’s protagonist .
The gathered works will once again make explicit the role of the photographic medium, already highlighted with the experiences of the performing arts since the 1960s, in the process of creation and diffusion, as well as documentation, analysis and interpretation of the performative act.
The key element is the “gesture”, as in any type of performative performance: artistic, theatrical, choreographic, musical, etc., understood as a set of signs of a corporeal and primitive language, as cultural codes that concern behavior, through which the performer seeks contact, involvement and often active participation.
The figure of the performer is thus recalled as the author of the artistic performance but also of the athletic one, where aesthetics, balance of form, harmony of gesture become visual stimuli that involves the emotional sphere of the observer.

Final deadline August 1
I think we can all agree that the election in November will be remembered as one of the most important in our lives.
 In the next 4 issues of South x Southeast Magazine we want you to show us what matters.
 Be it climate change, care for the elderly and disabled, child care, women’s rights, immigration, voting rights, tax reform, homelessness, the arts, protection of our waters, protection of our national parks, education, our food, or health care, if it is an issue that affects our lives, we want to see, and hear, your response.

The point is to give you a voice, both through your photographs and your words, to express your hopes and fears for the next four years.

And we’ll do our best to put these issues in the hands of those who want our votes.
