NOCTURNES: DUSK TILL DAWN | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | Aug 31ST, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | Sept 12TH, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Oct 15TH – 29TH

Theme: Nocturnes: Dusk till Dawn | Juror: Wendi Schneider

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Spanning two centuries, the magic of night photography has captured the collective imagination of the masses. From the infamously long exposures required by early artists to high-speed color film and the advent of digital technology, the light at night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, artificial structures, and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

JUROR | WENDI SCHNEIDER

Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist illuminating impressions of grace and serenity in the natural world with photography and precious metals. Inspired by a background in painting, art history, her collection of turn-of-the-twentieth century photographs, and the lush beauty of Memphis, New Orleans and New York, she began painting on photographs in the early ‘80s and applying gold leaf to translucent prints for her ongoing 'States of Grace' series in 2012. Her work has been honored and exhibited internationally and is held in permanent collections at New Orleans Museum of Art, Memphis Brooks Museum, Center For Creative Photography, and Auburn University Library, among others. She is represented by A Gallery For Fine Photography (New Orleans); Arnika Dawkins Gallery (Atlanta); Catherine Couturier Gallery (Houston), Galeria PhotoGraphic (San Miguel de Allende); Rick Wester Fine Art (New York); and Vision Gallery (Jerusalem).
