FRAMES WITHIN FRAMES | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION 

 

Entry Deadline | Jan 31ST, 2023 

Notice of Acceptance | Feb 12TH, 2023 

Exhibition Dates | Mar 18TH – Apr 1ST, 2023 

 

Theme: Frames Within Frames | Juror: Dallas Crow 

Speaking of the power of photography, Garry Winogrand once said, “Putting four edges around a collection of information or facts transforms it.” Let’s take that a step further: what happens when you put a frame—in the form of a doorway, window, mirror, casket, another picture, or some other structure—in the photograph itself? It may intensify the focus on the thing framed, but what about what’s happening in the margins between the interior frame and the edge of the picture? How does the composition work as a whole? How do the elements inside and outside the framing device interact? What has the photographer gained by including a frame within the picture rather than making it the border of the entire image?  

 

Praxis seeks the submission of photographic art that explores a frame or multiple frames within an image as the conceptual basis for the aesthetic expression. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​ 

 

JUROR | DALLAS CROW 

A high school English and photography teacher, Dallas Crow’s photographs have appeared in galleries around the United States and internationally as well as on the covers of multiple books and magazines. His first solo exhibition, The Other Border, was mounted at Praxis in 2018, and another, Thankful for the Blues, was presented at Space Place Gallery in Nizhny Tagil, Russia in 2021. He has juried three previous group shows for Praxis.

THE ARTIST INTERVENES | OPEN CALL | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY

  • Organization: Praxis Gallery
  • Name of the Call for Entry: The Artist Intervenes
  • Curated By: Aline Smithson
  • Entry Deadline: Jan 15TH, 2023
  • Notice of Acceptance: Jan 23rd, 2023
  • Exhibition Dates: Feb 18TH – Mar 4TH, 2023
  • URL for information: https://www.praxisgallery.com/calls-for-entry

Description:

Photographic artists are reconsidering the potential of a photograph with a shift to making rather than taking photographs. By using vintage and contemporary photographs as a starting point, artists create physically layered works of art that result in an object, often in reaction to the flood of ubiquitous imagery that digital and cell phone photography has afforded. 

 

Praxis Gallery accepts submissions of photographic art or lens-based artwork that utilizes physical interventions and investigations of photographic surfaces that can include sewing, cutting, drawing, painting, tearing, bending, and weaving, all ways of interrogating the material qualities of a physical photograph to create new realities. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Aline Smithson is a visual artist, editor, and educator based in Los Angeles, California.

Smithson is the Founder and Editor- in-Chief of Lenscratch, a daily journal on photography.  In 2012, she received the Rising Star Award through the Griffin Museum of Photography for her contributions to the photographic community and she also received the prestigious Excellence in Teaching Award from CENTER. In 2014 and 2019, Smithson’s work was selected for the Critical Mass Top 50.  In 2015, the Magenta Foundation published her first significant monograph, Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography, and in 2016, the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum commissioned Smithson to create a series of portraits for the upcoming Faces of Our Planet Exhibition. In 2018 and 2019, her work was exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery in London as part of the Taylor Wessing Prize.

RED is a powerful color that has been used throughout history and is associated with love, passion, and courage. In Asian countries, it symbolizes happiness and good fortune.

It stands out from all backgrounds.RED sunsets, strawberries, scarlet slippers; royal capes, rubies, and cardinals- all are infused with this special color and used by all artists.

Alizarin crimson, cadmium, vermillion, and Venetian red are just some of the many shades of red that can inspire your creation. Celebrate RED in your artwork, use this dominant hue as an accent, background, or subject. From Ruby to Lava, we’re looking for Red!

Submit your vision, and create an artwork with one of the most emotional colors in the spectrum. Be prepared to turn up the Heat when we show your fired-up works of art with the dominant color RED.  Send submissions through Entrythingy
