OPEN THEME | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | June 30TH, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | July 12TH, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Aug 27TH – Sept 10TH

Theme: Open Theme | Juror: Ann Jastrab

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting… It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

- Elliott Erwitt -

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

JUROR | ANN JASTRAB

Ann Jastrab, Executive Director for The Center for Photographic Art, is a champion of photographic artists. After earning her MFA in photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 1995, she joined the resident faculty at the Maine Photographic Workshops and taught there for nearly a decade in both their year-round program and their intensive summer workshops. Prior to taking the position of executive director of CPA, she curated many exhibitions for RayKo during her tenure as gallery director - while also jurying, curating, and organizing numerous exhibitions for other national and international venues outside of the San Francisco Bay Area. She has served on numerous boards and fundraising committees and has been thrilled to bring her talents, passion, and leadership skills to The Center for Photographic Arts. Besides being a curator and an educator, Ann is a writer and editor and she is also a fine art photographer who still carries around a wooden view camera…and a metal one too.

ANIMAL BEINGS | OPEN CALL | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY

Entry Deadline | June 15TH, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | June 23RD, 2022

Exhibition Dates | July 16TH – 30TH, 2022

Theme: Animal Beings | Guest Curator: Anne Berry

This exhibition is a celebration of the astonishing beauty and diversity found in the animal world. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that showcase animals’ inner beauty, strength, character, resiliency, and wisdom. Compassionate images of companion animals, wild animals, farm animals, insects, and fish are all heartily welcomed.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that show us the very best of your furry, scaly, feathery photographs! Images that showcase violence or inhumane treatment will not be considered. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional processes, and digital post-production are all welcome for submission.

GUEST CURATOR: ANNE BERRY

Anne Berry is internationally recognized for her ability to create lyrical, intimate portraits of animals. Since 2010 she has traveled to small zoos in Europe to visit and photograph primates.  Her portraits reveal the unique personality of each of these animals. Jane Goodall describes the photographs as “wonderful, very moving, should melt a few hearts.” This project culminated in a folio published by 21st Editions, which is held in museum and library special collections, including The National Gallery of Art. Berry published Behind Glass, 2021 to make the project accessible to a wider audience. It is Berry”s goal to motivate people to feel compassion for primates and an obligation to protect them. Most of the primates she photographs qualify as endangered, and all of them are facing stress from loss of habitat and human activity. The plight of primates on earth is urgent; our indifference will condemn them to extinction, and we will follow. These photographs provide a voice for primates, and they are asking for help.

"Mutagens"

Eligibility:

Call for submission: Visual Art, photography, poetry, and writing, for a book on collective rebellion.

In the ongoing fight for power among world leaders, the innocent bloodshed of victims, and the outstanding resilience and unity people have shown, we bring you: 

An initiative supporting inspiring strong-hearted individuals, who are an example of how wartime/uprising affects place, structure, land, culture, and individuals.

Governments see people who speak up as mutants, anarchists, and disobedient... and in turn, those same governments inflict disastrous mutations upon their people. This is a chance to give a voice to the rebellion against corrupted and abusive political powers, it is a search into how the psychology of humans changes when their environment, their rights, and their reality, are invaded and they have to stand up for it. Everything becomes meaningless except their unified resilience.

A chance for everyone to share their art or poetry/writings, revolving around political injustice, warfare, oppression, freedom, rebellion, changes, mutiny, and revolutions.

The invasion that occurred in Ukraine brought a humanitarian crisis to light that has been seen all around the world. In the face of all of it we encourage people to express, revolt, and share the fire they have inside of them, to speak up and freely make their voices heard. This project is a book made up of art and poetry by the people, for the people. A collective artistic revolution. 

All profits from this book will be fully donated to support and aid charities working in Ukraine.

-----

Culturally Arts Collective is a nonprofit organization for arts education, outreach, and exhibitions based in the United States. We strive to promote a culture of artistic innovation upholding the academic integrity of the arts, uplifting contemporary expression, and challenging the status quo.

We are currently looking to shine on a light on the people and let them speak their minds and express themselves fully.

Art publication, art book publication

Transience

Eligibility:

TRANSIENCE | OPEN CALL | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY

Entry Deadline | Mar 15th, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | Mar 23rd, 2022

Exhibition Dates | April 16th – 30th 2022

Theme: Transience | Guest Curator: Aline Smithson

The last two years have been profound in our reconsiderations of self. The pandemic has transformed the way we behave, has affected our psyches, and made us examine what is most important in our lives. We discovered that everything is fleeting and temporary, ever changing, moving, and evolving. Transience comes in many forms and awareness of the transience of all things heightens appreciation of their beauty and evokes a gentle sadness at their passing. 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that speaks to the transitory nature of life--from flora and fauna, from objects left behind after a loved ones passing, to memories and loss.  All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Guest Curator | Aline Smithson

Aline Smithson is a Los Angeles based visual artist, editor, and educator. She is the Founder and Editor- in-Chief of Lenscratch, a daily journal on photography that has offered exposure and opportunities for thousands of photographic artists since 2007. Aline has been an educator at the Los Angeles Center of Photography since 2001, and she teaches at venues around the globe.  She has curated and juried exhibitions for a number of galleries, organizations, and publications, including Review Santa Fe, Critical Mass, Flash Forward, and the Griffin Museum. In addition, she is a reviewer and educator at many photo festivals across the United States. Aline received the Rising Star Award through the Griffin Museum of Photography for her contributions to the photographic community and the Excellence in Teaching Award from CENTER. Her work was selected for the Critical Mass Top 50 and in 2015, the Magenta Foundation published her first significant monograph, Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography. In 2016, the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum commissioned Aline to a series of portraits for the upcoming Faces of Our Planet Exhibition. In 2018 and 2019, Aline’s work was selected as a finalist in the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize by the National Portrait Gallery in London. In 2019, Kris Graves Projects published LOST; Los Angeles.
