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.

Staged

PH21 Contemporary Photography Gallery
Budapest,

 

Although staged photography emerged as a distinct artistic genre only a few decades ago, staging has been a standard photographic practice from the early days of the medium. For some genres like still life, fashion or nude photography, setting the stage and directing the models are almost intrinsic aspects of the creative process. Photographs belonging to other genres, for instance portraits, may or may not be staged or directed. For this exhibition we are looking for images, which have been constructed to create a unique meaning. We invite works created by artists who, in addition to that of the photographer, also assume other creative functions, such as setting or designing the scene, directing the model(s), sometimes designing the costume and set, or even applying makeup and prosthetics. Staged images, however, do not necessarily have to involve human or nonhuman models as they may rely merely on the arrangements of selected objects into a meaningful scene.

This Land

Darkroom Gallery
Essex Jct., VT

 

For This Land we’re looking for photos that express the connectivity of the individual, the photographer, to the world around. What do you see when you’re hiking in the mountains or taking a walk in a city park?  How do you see it – through the scope of a wide angle lens or through details selectively framed? We’d like to see your expression of your connection to the land as well as your vision of your personal landscape. This will be deeply spiritual for some and more matter-of-fact for others; the important factor is presenting the world, your world, as you uniquely see it.

Master Class – The Photo Montage

A Smith Gallery
Johnson City, TX

 

Just as a photograph can record fragments of reality, it can also be created out of fragments. This is what a photo montage does. It juxtaposes and melds seemingly disparate objects into a cohesive whole, fragments from many sources, to present a different reality, in the way a dream might present fragments from different times and places.

N Y Photo Curator: Self-Conscious Curator: Frances Jakubek


 

Jakubek says, “This exhibition is calling out for image makers who are exploring visual depictions of the self. The photographs should reflect an awareness of existence and consciousness, whether depicting how we perceive our self in a greater conversation, (environmentally, politically, etc), or through self-portraiture. Our personal histories inform our responses to world events, relationships and different circumstances…how do we show this photographically?

Examples of the scope: Elinor Carucci’s photograph, Mother puts on my lipstick from 1993 is an example of direct personal information compared to an image like Patrick Nagatani’s from “Nuclear Enchantment,” discovering his home as it correlates to the history of war. We each have our own unique history and the way we view the world and our place in it; I am interested in viewing images that embody the importance and anxiety of being self-conscious.”

FOUND OBJECTS

Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center
Minneapolis, MN

 

A “found object” is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, old photographs, signs, doll heads, industrial machinery, abandoned cars, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… as long as the artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality – stemming from its appearance, social or personal history.

Praxis gallery seeks photographic art that endeavors to explore this idiom. Submissions may be a study of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility. Conversely, the representation of the object may be a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Weathered

Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio

 
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address or reflect the theme of weathered.
The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi includes the appreciation for the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. Time wears all things. Literally taken weathering is an aspect of the elements, but not without time. Wind, rain, sun, fire, and ice, and even mechanical means, transform everything. Weathering then is the process by which things in our world, and the world itself, are in the process of always becoming. In appreciating such processes one becomes aware of the signs of surviving age, stress, life, the toll of an ordeal or accomplishment, and existence itself. Through weathering a compelling narrative unfolds.
Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.

There is something powerful about finding inspiration and meaning in the ordinary everyday things and spaces around us. In the artist it represents a Zen-like independence from assumed ideals, and a dexterity of mind and perception that, when practiced and shared through visual art, transfers the potent sense of appreciation to the unsuspecting viewer, like a sage gifting illumination of a higher nature.

Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio

 
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address or reflect the theme of PERIPHERAL.
Limitations inspire creativity. Edges—the periphery of awareness, skill, media use, capabilities, and concepts—form the mold that creative trailblazers attempt to define, expand, and break free of. In turn new edges are created, new limitations defined. We are curious how artists consider the concepts of boundaries, edges, or the ‘peripheral’ as it relates to their creative practice and the subject, content, or form of their work.
Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio

 
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address or reflect the theme of ENVIRONMENTAL.
Environmental awareness has crept, like a dam springing a leak, for over a century now. It seems we wallow from the depths of denial and personal narrow radii to the heights of generational concern, selflessness, and bright clarity regarding the situation at hand. What a paradox to realize that in order to live we must destroy the only thing that could sustain us. Is humanity truly a virus, insane to the point of repeating the same mistakes over and over expecting a different result? How can art and design play a role in illuminating the bigger picture, galvanizing resolve, or illustrating the task or questions at hand?
What does our culture have to say about our world moving into the Anthropocene?
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, science, or even in the broader sense of Environment from a conceptual, imaginary, or theoretical point of view.

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.

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.

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 not a gallery exhibition. It does not require shipping works to Manifest. It is an award-winning non-profit hardcover publication with cash awards.
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.

($2000 in Cash Awards)

TRANSITIONS AND DISPLACEMENTS

Loosen Art Project
Milan, Italy

 

nternational Group Exhibition in Berlin or Rome city April 2020

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

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.

ABSTRACTIONS

Loosen Art Project

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.
