AFTER DARK

Opening Night: To Be Announced
Exhibition Dates: Dec 19th - Jan 5th, 2021

Juror | Lance Keimig

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Spanning two centuries, night photography has captured the collective imagination of the masses. From the infamously long exposures required by early artists, to high speed color films and the advent of digital technology, the subject of the night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, factories, artificial structures and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form.

Narratives

Opening By Appointment
Exhibition Dates: Nov 21st - Dec 14th, 2020

Juror | Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer – and what is being left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works of art that explore the development of visual narratives through the still image. Stories may take any shape or form; they may be literal or fantasy, documentary or fiction; complex or minimal.

The Shape of Things

Theme | The Shape of Things

The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation... an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

 

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts. Praxis Gallery presents art that explores composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives.

Praxis Gallery | Photo Arts Center Presents

Even in Darkness,

There is Light

A Solo Exhibition by Brandon Movall
Opening Night Reception: October 24th,2020
Extended: Oct 24th - Dec 12th, 2020

Even in Darkness, There is Light was inspired by my own struggles with anxiety. I wanted to see how other individuals have dealt with their own inner darkness. Each of the pieces is inspired by a response to the prompt: “Tell me about a time in your life where your internal light overcame the darkness around you”. I asked 20 individuals this question, with the goal of demonstrating how powerful the human spirit is, and how, as the title suggests, even in the darkest of times in life, there is light. Each answer to the prompt was voice recorded, so I could hear the inflections of the individual’s voice when they shared their story. From that, I created a light painting photograph inspired by their answer to the prompt. Each image has different colors, shapes, and locations of the light based on my artistic interpretation of the story.

MAKING STRANGE

Opening Night: To Be Announced
Exhibit Dates: Sept 19th - Oct 13th 2020

Juror | Douglas Beasley

How do we document what happens and recurs everyday: the banal, the common, the ordinary? Can we rescue astonishment from the forgotten obvious by finding unexplored perspectives to depict our common places and familiar activities in startling and engrossing new ways?

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that search for the iconic and ironic in the everyday world around us; that portray the people, places and things which have become ordinary to us in new, imaginative and expressive ways.

THE STILL LIFE

Reception: To Be Announced
Exhibition Dates: Aug 22nd - Sept 15th, 2020
Juror | Ann Jastrab

Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Art work may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer.
