Printed Matter: Emerging Artists Publication Series

Emerging Artists Publication Series
Deadline: May 31

Printed Matter
New York, NY

The Emerging Artists Publication Series supports early career artists in realizing an artists’ book project. Up to two compelling book proposals will be selected by Printed Matter staff and a guest jury to be developed and published under our imprint in 2019-20. As “emerging artists”, applicants will be practicing artists but will not have major gallery representation, a significant solo exhibition history or an extensive book publishing practice. 

First publications are encouraged. Collaborative proposals are welcome, but note that both participants must be residents of NYC. Multiple submissions are permitted, with a maximum of two.

Proposed books may be in progress—a final design is not required—however applications should be for book projects developed beyond the idea stage. Though we expect that selected projects will evolve during the working period, submissions should be carefully considered and successfully illustrate to the jury what the completed project will look like. Applications may also describe production aspects of the book, including size and format, printing method and binding. 

In support of your application, please provide an overview of any work that’s been done to date, and a brief breakdown of what you see the remaining work areas to be (research phase, writing period, commissioning of texts, etc.) with an indication of how project material will be sourced. 

We will only be able to review submissions for artists’ books—works that are conceived as artworks in their own right. Works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, catalogs of artwork, monographs, as well as limited edition, deluxe, or hand-crafted book objects will not be eligible as these are outside the program’s scope.

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black and white & monochromatic photography an enduring, contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Deadline: June 3

Blue Sky Gallery
Portland, OR

Blue Sky: Ahead is a two month exhibition series, which celebrates the legacy of Blue Sky’s founders and highlights the future of photography in Oregon, as seen through the eyes of Blue Sky’s founders.

Founded in 1975 with the hard work and unemployment checks of five twenty-something photographers, Blue Sky is now 44 years old. With this exhibition, we seek to honor our past, and think about the future.

We are honoring our past by holding an exhibition of work by our five founders in October 2019, our birthday month. Blue Sky will utilize both of its galleries for Blue Sky Ahead: Founders, an exhibition of work by Blue Sky’s founders Christopher Rauschenberg, Craig Hickman, Robert DiFranco, Ann Hughes, and Terry Toedtemeier.  

Then, in honor of Blue Sky’s 44th birthday, we look to the future of photography, as represented by people younger than the organization. In November 2019, Blue Sky will utilize both of its galleries for Blue Sky Ahead: Future, an exhibition of five Oregon photographic artists, ages 44 and younger, chosen from this call to represent the future of photography in Oregon. Blue Sky’s founders will select from the open call for the exhibition. Prudence Roberts will select on behalf of Terry Toedtemeier, and Blue Sky’s Exhibition Committee will also select one artist. 

Programming and Traveling Exhibition

An exhibition that combines highlights of these two shows will travel to Umpqua Valley Arts Association (Roseburg, OR) in early 2020. We will also be creating an exhibition catalog, including images from each artist, artist statements, and essays. Blue Sky will host 3 or more events during this two-month exhibition. We welcome artist participation if possible (not required).

Qualifications

  • All applicants must live in Oregon and be 44 years old or younger at the time of submission.

  • To be considered for the exhibition, all artwork must be photo- or video-based.

Financial Considerations

Each artist will receive at $500 honorarium for their participation in the exhibition. No further funds are available. Artists are responsible for shipping or delivering their work to Blue Sky. Blue Sky will be responsible for returning work to artists at the conclusion of the exhibition at Umpqua Valley Arts Association.

Artists are welcome to offer their work for sale while on view at Blue Sky. Please keep in mind that Blue Sky takes a 50% commission on all sales.

Deadline: June 17

Diffusion Magazine

Editors: Blue Mitchell & Liz Kale

Join us in celebrating Diffusion’s TEN year anniversary! It’s a milestone we are very proud of. In an effort to reflect our appreciation for our reader’s support and the photographic community in general, our theme for our tenth annual is:

A Love Letter to the Crafters of Photography

In our podcast, The Diffusion Tapes, the topic of “the photographic community” often comes up with my guests and how their peer’s support and collaboration feed their projects. This is what Diffusion has been for me the past ten years, a vehicle for collaboration, a venue for personal curatorial expression, and most importantly my lifeline to some the finest people I’ve ever met.

And although I’m here for the art, I am biased to the people. I celebrate you.

So now, let us celebrate some art. A love letter to the crafters, an homage to the history, the celebration of bonds made, you know, all the warm and fuzzies. For this milestone issue, we intend to focus more on storytelling and less on abstractions. Help us spin a yarn. How about in ten chapters? Seems apropos to me.

—Blue Mitchell, Publisher, Diffusion

About: Diffusion is primarily a limited run print publication published by One Twelve Publishing. We strive to spotlight artists pushing the boundaries of standard photographic processes in a beautifully designed annual book.

SE Center for Photography: Women by Women

Women by Women
Deadline: July 7

SE Center for Photography
Greenville, SC

Juror: Kat Kiernan, Editor-in-Chief, Don’t Take Pictures

The history of photography has a long tradition of representing women as subjects but has less to say about women as artists. Today, the roles of women in photography are both behind the camera and in front of it. Who understands women better than women? The female perspective offers an important view of the many facets of womanhood and womens’ role in society. This exhibition seeks women photographers who explore and celebrate the myriad ways that they render female-identifying subjects. 

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date.

There are references to trees all around us – in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual. Trees make up forests and jungles. They stand alone on hillsides creating lovely shadows. They can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will shade a child on a hot day; provide a sturdy posts to tie up the pet dog or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.

Send us your images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, roots…

Atlanta, GA

Juror: Tim Wride, Curator Photography, Norton Museum of Art

Atlanta Photography Group (APG) is now accepting entries of photographic based images or projects that play on the concept of Reverie, defined as a state of being lost in one’s thoughts; a daydream or a chain of thoughts. Each of us has our own history and culture that has been the substance fueling personal myths and meditations. Where does your mind go when it’s not preoccupied? What are your personal musings or conceits on recent history or possible futures? For some a romantic and nostalgic perspective, while others are shadowed and tormented by stormier chronicles, all providing a point to be lost in one’s thoughts.

Fees: $60 for up to 10 images.
