Eligibility:

Studio Montclair is currently seeking submissions for the exhibition “On the Surface,” which will be on view from October 28 through November 26, 2022 at Studio Montclair Gallery, 127 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ.

Artists have stretched, manipulated, and morphed the surface in ways that challenge traditional ideas of what art can be. While surface articulation may range from flat to sculptural, there is a visual tension between the actuality of the object and the space that is simultaneously perceived. Using a variety of materials, artists are building up the plane and playing with dimensionality. They are also creating an illusion of three-dimensionality, which may require the viewer to become aware of his or her sense of form, mass, and space. Other artists allow the materials and process to create a surface that engages the sense of touch as well as sight, or they may use transparency to enable the viewer to penetrate the surface. From a limitless interiority to a built-out exterior space, the viewer experiences many aspects of spatial ambiguity as well as the intriguing intersection of medium, surface and illusion. For “On the Surface,” Studio Montclair is looking for artists who are examining the limitless boundaries of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional plane.

Art League of Long Island’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery Presents “Time's Running Out: An iPhonography and 3D(isaster) Sculpture Exhibition” October 1 - 28

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Art League of Long Island presents a body of digital photographic artwork and trash sculpture, highlighting the contrast between nature’s beauty and the environmental pollution and decay found throughout the country, including on Long Island’s roadways, parks, and beaches. The exhibit, created by Scott Schneider’s Toxic/Nature Studios®, is on view October 1 through October 28, 2022.  The opening reception on October 1 is from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and open to the public.

 

Scott Schneider states: “Toxic/Nature Studios® features environmental photography that celebrates the majesty of nature and laments its demise, in small moments. Using close-up macro techniques, the photographs express my appreciation for and concern about the environment.

 

As we become increasingly distracted by our devices, we tend to overlook small disasters beneath our feet.  Likewise, we can fail to notice the beautiful moments present in nature. I explore these concepts in the “Toxic” and “Nature” galleries on the website, ToxicNature.com.  Beauty can also be found in the rust, decay, and textures of everyday objects, which I highlight in the “Manufactor” gallery. 

 

All photos are taken by me, Scott Schneider, with an iPhone, thereby leveraging the power of technology to observe rather than to distract.  I take photos every day, no matter where I am or what I’m doing.  I don’t go out to take pictures; I take pictures because I’m out. 

 

From my photographs, I create archival, digital pigment prints using environmentally friendly inks on bamboo paper, which is highly sustainable.

 

In addition to my photos, I have crafted a series of sculptural pieces which I’m calling “3D(isasters).”  This thought-provoking artwork is designed to challenge the viewer to make sense of the quantity of litter displayed in a #finditfillit container.

 

I hope that my art will inspire others to notice the world around them and to take action to preserve its natural beauty. We can’t do this while plugged in and tuned out. That’s why I ask viewers to unplug, look around, and get the small picture. By turning off our blinders of technology, and noticing the small detail of a piece of litter, a fallen petal, or an interesting bit of rust, we can then look up and notice the big picture, which is that the world needs our help.

 

The Instagram account @toxicnaturestudios spreads awareness through my art. Its sister account, @5.pieces.a.day.everyday, encourages others to pick up litter, thereby noticing and improving the environment.

 

Furthering my mission, a portion of sales is donated to charities that focus on protecting the environment.”

 

The Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery is open free of charge Tuesdays & Thursdays 10am-8pm, and Fridays & Saturdays 10am-3pm. The Art League is located at 107 East Deer Park Road in Dix Hills. For more information call (631) 462-5400 or visit www.artleagueli.org.

Description:

The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation... an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

 

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity, and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.

                                                           

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

JUROR | ELIZABETH FLINSCH

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.
