THE STILL LIFE | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | January 31st, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | February 12th, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Mar 19th - April 2nd, 2022

Theme: The Still Life | Juror: Kimberly Witham
 

Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Submissions may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission

JUROR | KIMBERLY WITHAM

Kimberly Witham is an artist and educator who currently resides in Glen Gardner, NJ. She earned a BA in Art History from Duke University and an MFA in photography from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. Her photographs are strongly influenced by her studies in art history and her interest in the natural world. Since moving to New Jersey in 2006, her work has focused on the relationship between humans and wildlife. Her still life images include road kill animals, yard sale items, and flowers and fruit (often grown in the artist’s own garden). Her work has been featured in Color Magazine, PHOTO+, BLOW photo, The Photo Review, BLINK, Foto, Orion, The New Republic, and Wired (online) and has been used as cover illustration for books in the US and France. In 2016, National Geographic created a short film about Kimberly’s studio practice entitled “Making Roadkill Into Art.” She has won awards and grants including the Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Award, a fellowship at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, the Clarence John Laughlin Award and the Lindback Distinguished teaching award. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad and is held in numerous private collections. Kimberly is an Associate Professor of Photography at Bucks County Community College. Kimberly also teaches specialized workshops in still life photography and lighting.

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION:

The Object Seen – Contemporary Still Life is a celebration of one of art history’s oldest traditions – the study and practice of the still life as subject matter.  This exhibition honors both traditional realism as well as more experimental contemporary techniques and welcomes a variety of media.

JURY CRITERIA:

The juror will be asked to select work (both two and three dimensional) that reflects and expresses the theme of Contemporary Still Life while demonstrating creativity, strength of execution, and overall artistic excellence with the goal of selecting a well-rounded exhibit that showcases a broad range of artistic styles and interpretation.  

 

ABOUT THE JUROR:  

Sheldon Tapley is the Stodghill Professor of Art at Centre College, where he has taught painting and drawing throughout his career. His works have been exhibited and collected at public institutions across the country.

“Tapley masterfully blends the discipline of a hard-earned classical technique with a vision that is thoroughly modern and personal,” wrote Bill Creevy in American Artist. Kentucky Educational Television featured the artist in the documentary series Looking at Painting and an episode of Kentucky Life. The New Yorker introduced Tapley’s art to a national audience in a review of his first solo exhibition of still life paintings at the Tatistcheff Gallery.
