HAPPINESS: International Call For Artists and Writers by ArtAscent


Happiness. We all want it. We all have different ideas of what it means. To some it requires being busy, involved, connected, purposed, fulfilled, loving or loved. To others being happy means feeling healthy, generous or successful. It seems to be entangled with our level of acceptance and expectation. What, where, who or when is your happy place? Share your HAPPINESS with words or imagery.

Domesticity – Group Photography Exhibition

Midwest Center for Photography
Witchita, Kansas


Domesticity is a primarily household act, an activity and chore with devotion to family and home life. One in which we do with pleasure to sustain life with the personal characteristics that makes it our own. The building of the family unit, the organization of personal possessions, the nourishment provided from the meals we prepare, and the art of creating a space of comfortable respite is a great necessity of the human condition, of survival. Photographs using domestic subject matter, images of people and places we call home, of family, of shelter, are what make up the images in this exhibition, encompassing a range of approaches from the traditional codes of domesticity to alternative modes of home making.

PH21 Gallery
Budapest, Hungary


There are two kinds of photographs with respect to the significance of their use of colours. On the one hand, ever since colour film technology became widely available, colour has become the default in most photographic practices. That is, some photographs are in colour not because their colours bear some special significance (compared, for instance, to their possible black and white counterparts) but simply because the available film or digital technology has long turned colour to be the common method of capturing photographic images. We may think of these photographs as colour by default. On the other hand, colours are often central to the meaning of photographs for their emphatic, symbolic, psychological, social, compositional, etc. significance. These photographs would not work in black and white the same way; that they are in colour is not merely a technological given, rather, it is an integral, formative and significant aspect of their photographic meaning. We may think of these photographs as colour by significance.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Significant Colour. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in the significance of any colour in photography 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 significance of colours is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.



Celebrating Women

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT


For this exhibition we seek images that will contribute to a mosaic of what it means to be female: the mystery, the diversity, the enduring and the changeable. Photographs of women of any age are encouraged that reveal aspects of the feminine core—its physicality, emotional complexity, strength and vulnerability, and unique place in humanity.

Any capture or process is welcome.

We are immensely pleased that Joyce Tenneson will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Tenneson.

Carol Erb says, “Animals can be found just about everywhere on our planet, from tiny single cell microorganisms to gigantic creatures that roam the land and swim in the sea.
