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.

Fees: $35 for up to 5 images

In the midst of our differences, there remain timeless and compelling similarities among all of us- subjects that bind us and connect us to one another, both in our communities and across the globe. What are the universal experiences that photography seeks to capture?

Selected artists will be exhibited at Filter Space from September 20th - October 19th, 2019. We will have public reception concurrent with our other exhibition, Seeing the familiar for the first time, on September 20th, 6 – 9 pm during the 2019 Filter Photo Festival and Expo Chicago’s Art After Hours.

San Francisco Center for the Book: (retro)(intro)spection

(retro)(intro)spection
Deadline: September 1

San Francisco Center for the Book
San Francisco, CA

Jurors:
Alisa Golden, author of Making Handmade Books
Lisa Beth Robinson, Somnambulist Tango Press
Steve Woodall, Achenbach Collections Specialist, Legion of Honor Museum

What’s in a word? What about a prefix?  Retro- can be used to describe furniture, artifacts, graphic design, fashion, and interiors. Retroactive (taking effect from a date in the past), retrocede (to go back), retrocognition (backward knowing) and retrograde (moving backwards) are words that lead us to the past where might learn something about where we are in the here-and-now.

The etymology of intro- encourages artists to look within, gain and gather perspective. What about the suffix -spection? It means to look, see or observe, having evolved from the Latin Specere (to look at) and the Proto-Indo-European language root spek (to observe).

Artists are frequently inspired by the past and aim to make work which speaks to future audiences, subsequent generations. Tandem processes of introspective questioning and retrospective storytelling often come together in the artist book format—giving reader and creator the opportunity for personal reflection.

Artists books tell us stories by using narrative, structure, materials. Each of these aspects help the artist to communicate a perspective, one that is singularly unique to themselves and the work. (retro)(intro)spection seeks to explore the crossroads where artists books and artistic process intersect. When do our amorphous ideas become real, at what point? What is the role of introspection and one’s personal past when applied to artists books? In the act of looking back as well as in, the curators hope that artists will be inspired by their body of work, regarding the path or discovering the throughline that brings them to the present, creating work to speak not only to future audiences, but also to subsequent generations.

Media: This exhibit is open to handmade book and paper arts related works created either in edition or as a one-of-a-kind work. Artists’ books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, installations, zines, and broadsides are all encouraged.

Diffusion X, print annual

Diffusion X
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.

Blue Sky Ahead
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.

Deadline: May 31

Praxis Gallery
Minneapolis, MN

Juror: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination. Utilizing tone, contrast, texture and shape, monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the most essential visual elements; revealing a sense of soul, substance and meaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism and cultural associations of color imagery. 

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.

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

It can be devastating in its destructive force, and equally devastating by its absence. But that does not diminish the joy and serenity it can provide us in its many forms. For this exhibit, we seek images that describe our relationship with the many facets of water.

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. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.
