New York Center for Photographic Arts: Trees

Trees
Deadline: May 5

New York Center for Photographic Arts
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.). Winners will receive $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition, on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the BLACK AND WHITE 2018 catalog.

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. Exhibits reflect a wide range of media and experimental approaches that offer the viewer unexpected interactions with art.   

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. Artists must live in the Mid-Atlantic region to apply for a solo exhibition in the Common Ground Gallery. The Concourse Gallery is located on the second floor and is approximately 500 square feet.

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)

PLEASE SUBMIT TO: stampgallery@umd.edu

Site: Brooklyn: Photography Series and Repetition

Photography Series and Repetition
Deadline: March 14

Site: Brooklyn
Brooklyn, NY

Juror: Elizabeth Biondi

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.

Fees: $35 for up to 3 images, $10 each additional image up to 12
