NYC4PA Call for Entry - WATER 2023

“Water under the bridge”, “Water water everywhere”

So many sayings reference water, songs as well.  Water, of late a critical concern in our environment, is so very central to much of our lives. In addition, it is beautiful to photograph. This call is about how you, the photographer, capture water. Is it a thundering waterfall? Is it glistening droplets from a puppy shaking itself off, a surfer caught in the curl, or a reflection in a city pond? Maybe you used a slow shutter to create the soft image of flowing water in a stream. Teardrops, raindrops, dew drops .... ice floes, waterfalls, rapids and serene lakes. The list goes on. Black and white, color, abstract - all 2D mediums are welcome.

Liquid ~ Sky


Entry Deadline | July 15th, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | July 23rd, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Aug 27th – Sept 10th, 2022

Theme: Liquid ~ Sky | Curated By: Praxis Directors

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, airplanes, and rockets that push skyward.
