THE PORTRAIT | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | May 31ST, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | June 12TH, 2022

Exhibition Dates | July 16TH – 30TH, 2022

Theme:  The Portrait | Juror: Sandra Chen Weinstein

“Making portraits is more than a physical form, it’s a silent communication in understanding and respect between the photographer and the subject.  There’s an internal emotion and fire of the soul that you try to capture.   – Sandra”

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.”

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

“Contemporary portraiture: Redefining the Figure” is an exhibit centered around the human form. Portraiture has traditionally been utilized as a medium to capture and replicate the likeness or expression of a person, yet this age old art form has evolved tremendously since its origins - from DaVinci’s anatomical drawings to visually striking portraits by contemporary painter Amy Sherald. In this online exhibit, we will be exhibiting a wide range of work including representational and abstract interpretations, as well as work by artists who seek to redefine or challenge the genre of portraiture. 

We encourage artists who work in diverse mediums and styles to apply. The follow mediums are accepted: Painting, drawing, mixed-media, collage, sculpture, digital art, photography.

Our guest curator is Erika b Hess, Artist, Curator & Host of the I Like Your Work podcast! Erika has exhibited her work nationally and juried a wide range of exhibits across the U.S.
