University of Maryland Stamp Gallery: UN/Sustainable

UN/Sustainable
Deadline: April 1

University of Maryland Stamp Gallery
College Park, MD

In recent years there has been a resurgence of concern about sustainability as the world confronts and reacts to the ramifications of decisions, past and present. The impending environmental realities of the future give birth to revolutionary conversation and oftentimes protest. Artists sit at the forefront of these movements, using their stories to open the eyes of viewers and reflect upon their own relationships to the physical world. A lack of concern for the earth, and more widely the cultures and peoples that so heavily rely on nature, reflects larger structures of power at play and forces questions about our collective priorities. 

UN/Sustainable will examine these priorities through contemporary works that critically interact in bold and creative ways with the artist’s experience of the physical world and its future. The exhibition will feature a range of media and will seek to include art that asks: What is the role of sustainability in the art world? What is an artist’s responsibility to the environment in art creation? In documentation? In protest? Can art play a role in sustaining the earth or is it merely reflection on the issues?  How do culture and larger power structures affect environmental action and opinion? Are our ways of existing sustainable?

Submitted work may focus on concerns specific to the United States as well as be historically situated or centered on other cultures and regions. The works will reach a wide range of patrons, including but not limited to students and are thus encouraged to provoke dialogue and new ways of thinking. Selected artwork will be exhibited in Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.

Submission Guidelines:
Applicants must submit:
-Artist’s Statement about specific works being submitted
-Link to artist’s website (if applicable)
-Proposed works with title and short description (up to 200 words), year of production, and medium)
-Digital documentation of work
-5-10 images/files (JPEG 72 dpi), video/audio clips should be shared as a
link to a streaming site (with password information as necessary)

VisArts Call for Solo Exhibition Proposals

Solo Exhibition Proposals
Deadline: April 5

VisArts
Rockville, MD

This show seeks to exhibit the diverse and exciting ways that photographers use sequence and series in their work. Repetition and seriality are built into the every level of photography from the production process, to its aesthetic theory, to the real-life practice of taking pictures. Photographs are often seen as representations or repetitions of reality itself, all while photography itself shapes modern consciousness just as much as it re-creates it. Site:Brooklyn is looking for work that actively engages with all aspects of repetition and series in photography. This might include subject matter, formal qualities, method, presentation, and much else.

VisArts invites artists working in all media to apply for 2020 Solo Exhibitions in the Gibbs Street Gallery, Common Ground Gallery, and Concourse Gallery.  Exhibitions in each of the galleries explore the breadth of contemporary art featuring emerging to mid-career artists.

The Gibbs Street Gallery is approximately 1,100 square feet with 16 ft. ceilings. It is on the street level with floor to ceiling windows along one wall. International, national and local artists are welcome to apply. The Common Ground Gallery is located on the second floor and is approximately 300 square feet.

Trees
Deadline: May 5

New York, NY

Juror: Traer Scott

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…

The New York Center for Photographic Arts (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.).

PhotoPlace Gallery: A Color Moment

A Color Moment
Deadline: January 14

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

Juror: Arthur Meyerson

A successful color photograph finds color as an essential element. Without color, the impact of the image would be significantly reduced. When used well, color coalesces with the other elements of the image to create an atmosphere, an emotional response, a sense of place. Effective use of color can take your breath away, zing your eyes, grab your heart, and celebrate light.

The photographs in this exhibit will be chosen less for technique and more for the pure passion captured in a moment in which color is a key element. 

Fees: $35 for up to 5 images, $6 each additional image

SoHo Photo: Krappy Kamera Competition

Krappy Kamera Competition
Deadline: January 7

SoHo Photo
New York, NY

Juror: Michelle Bates

Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment.  To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens).Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it Krappy.

Deadline: January 1

Brookline Arts Center
Brookline, MA

The Brookline Arts Center (BAC) invites artists of all media residing in the United States to submit work for “Object(ive)”. Our lives are continuously shaped by the objects we use and create. The meaning or purpose of an object may shift with time. Cups and bowls we use today could become precious artifacts displayed in a museum, or they could be tossed aside as forgotten waste. With the rapid technological advances of the last century, our production of objects has increased dramatically. American culture today can be characterized by our fierce consumerism and attachment to objects. In “Object(ive)” we are looking for work that explores the influence objects have on contemporary life, whether the objects are commonplace, precious, functional, religious, cultural or symbolic.

Fees: $30 for up to 3 images, $45 for 4-6 images.

Praxis Gallery: The Decisive Moment

The Decisive Moment
Deadline: December 30

Praxis Gallery
Los Angeles, CA

Juror: David L. Parker

Twentieth century French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described the decisive moment as ‘the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

While the concept of the decisive moment is often associated with dynamic, synchronic activity captured in an instant - it may just as well apply to the photographic image that records a thoughtful moment of fleeting solitude or calm. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore this intersection of form, function and significance. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission

Fees: $35 for up to 5 images, $5 for each additional image
