Opportunity Description

International Deadline: October 15, October 31, 2021 – Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center is a community based arts organization that aims to support the development of emerging and established photographers. Praxis Gallery provides solo and group show exhibition opportunities to local and international media artists.

The opportunities listed below are open to artists 18 years of age or older worldwide. All genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

NUDE GEOGRAPHICS
International Deadline: October 15, 2021

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica – just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art – specifically in photography – has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.

On display Nov 13 -27, 2021.

Eligibility

LANDSCAPES
International Deadline: October 31, 2021

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the landscape – both as a place, or an idea – as a literal expression or conceptual iteration. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities; evidence of secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing – or of past emotional turbulence, loss, longing and regret.

On display Dec 18th, 2021 – Jan 3rd, 2022.

Eligibility
Open to artists 18 years of age or older worldwide. All genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Juror
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 including AIPAD and Art Basel, and is held in permanent collections at New Orleans Museum of Art, Memphis Brooks Museum, Center For Creative Photography, and Auburn University Library… see more
