 International Juried Photography Exhibition

MOTION > BLUR

Reception: Saturday Dec 17TH 6-8PM. 
Exhibition Dates: Dec 17TH - 31ST, 2022

Juror: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel
In most cases, photography is used to “freeze time,” with a still image. Motion in photography creates a paradox: the image is a frozen moment in time but what is captured is an object that is a blur of motion – an apparent streaking, bending, distorting and /or movement of light and objects in the foreground or background of the image frame. Blur can demonstrate the velocity of movement. It can convey the emotional dimensions of the subject photographed, presenting dream like qualities by invoking the surreal and transitory nature of time passing. Meteors streak across the sky, ghostly figures move through a room, the artist paints shapes with a light source. These are some examples of how blur represents motion in time-lapse photography.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that demonstrates the fundamental qualities that make motion & blur a compelling element of contemporary photography.

NUDE GEOGRAPHIES

Reception: Saturday Dec 17TH 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Dec 17TH - 31ST, 2022

Curated By: Praxis Directors

 

The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art - specifically in photography - has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.
 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica - just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre.

 International Juried Photography Exhibition

BLACK & WHITE

Reception: Saturday Nov 19TH, 2022 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Nov 19TH - Dec 3RD, 2022

Juror: Robi Chakraborty

More than 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 presents photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black & white and monochromatic photography an enduring, contemporary art form.

THE LIFE OF COLOR

Reception: Saturday Nov 19TH, 2022 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Nov 19TH -  Dec 3RD, 2022

Color is said to be three-dimensional because of its three unique aspects. When you seek to define a specific color, there are three properties to consider; Hue, Value, and Saturation. These properties are the building blocks of the poetic and symbolic signification of color in creative photographic expression.
Color is a powerful tool in composing a poetic visual statement, and is highly descriptive in developing the imaginative capabilities of the mind’s eye. Certain colors carry a symbolic weight to them that when used in visual arts evokes certain moods, thoughts, ideas, and concepts, merely by their presence. Color creates different emotions and feelings. These reactions are rooted in psychological effects, biological conditioning and cultural imprinting.

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores these implications of color as a central device in the creation of compelling photographic art.

NOCTURNES: DUSK TILL DAWN

Reception: Saturday, Oct 15th 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Oct 15TH - 29TH, 2022

Juror: Wendi Schneider

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

 

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

IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS

Reception: Saturday October 15TH 6-8PM CST
Exhibition Dates:  Oct 15TH -29TH, 2022

The most perceptive photographers can make compelling pictures out of uninteresting moments. - Alex Tehrani –
 

French novelist Georges Perec declared that we should found “an anthropology of the ordinary” as revolt against cultural and mass media exploitation of the exotic - the relentless parade of trauma elevated above the routine of everyday events. Perec’s revolt against the frenzy of trauma (the shameful, the voyeuristic and the spectacular) was to excessively document the ordinary in daily life, meticulously accounting for everything and anything in one’s immediate surroundings in an active attempt to uncover the unimportant and the insignificant.
 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the in-between moments of life and endeavors to notice the unnoticeable, the mundane, the banal and anti-climactic.

PRAXIS PRESENTS A SOLO EXHIBITION

He Found Himself, He Will Not Draw Passers-By Anymore

Artist: Sashko Ilov

Reception: Saturday Oct 15TH 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Oct 15TH - 29TH, 2022

"He found himself, he will not draw passers-by anymore" is a story that takes place between two empty beaches. The walkers on the beach and their experiences of day-to-day plights. Sashko’s artwork covers native and modern elements mixed together and takes a critical view of social, political, and cultural issues. While they use a variety of materials and processes in each project, their methodology is consistent.

THE SHAPE OF THINGS

Opening Night Reception: Sept 24TH, 6-8PM CST
Exhibition Dates: Sept 24th - Oct 8th, 2022

Juror:  Elizabeth Flinsch

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 works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives.

 International Juried Photography Exhibition

MACRO > LARGER THAN LIFE

Reception: Saturday, Sept 24th 6-8pm 
Exhibition Dates: Sept 24th – Oct 8th, 2022

Curated by | Praxis Directors

Macro photography is all about showcasing a subject larger than it is in real life — an extreme close-up of something small. Photography is always a matter of perspective.  “It’s an alien world when you get into the macro level.” - Ben Long.

 

Macro photography challenges the photographer to capture the minute, granular details of a world that generally escapes our daily attention: this can include insects, plants, natural and human produced details of any and every subject matter in the world around us – from the texture of feathers to the geometric labyrinth of a microchip board.    

 

Praxis Gallery presents of photographic art that transforms the miniature into the larger than life, images that showcase the unseen and overlooked, and tiny moments of beauty presented through a magnified perspective.

 International Juried Photography Exhibition

OPEN THEME

EXHIBITION RECEPTION: Saturday, Sept 10th 6PM-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Aug 27TH – Sept 10TH, 2022

Juror: Ann Jastrab

 To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting… It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

- Elliott Erwitt -

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation.

LIQUID ~ SKY

EXHIBITION RECEPTION: Saturday, Sept 10th 6PM-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Aug 27th - Sept 10th, 2022

Curated By: Praxis Directors

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, airplanes, and rockets that push skyward.

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas.

'PERSONALITIES'

A Solo Exhibition by Gary Beeber
Artist Talk: LIVE STREAM VIDEO
Opening Night Reception: Saturday July 16TH 6-8PM

Exhibition Dates: July 16TH - 30TH 2022
Personalities

"the quality or state of being a person" – Merriam Webster

I have always been fascinated by people's stories. Especially captivating are individuals who push convention, driven by self expression. My background as a producer of an Off-Broadway burlesque variety show, Gotham Burlesque, led me to have intimate access to many such compelling people. My curiosity seeks out such unique performers and my earnest acceptance allows for our mutually engaging encounter. I provide the audience and their bold demonstration reminds me, and my viewers, of our common human wish - to be seen.

THE PORTRAIT

Opening Night Reception: Saturday July 16th 6-8pm
Notification Email: June 12TH 4PM CST
Exhibition Dates: July 16th - 30th, 2022

Juror | Sandra Chen Weinstein

“Making portraits is more than a physical form, it’s a silent communication in understanding and respect between the photographer and the subject.  There’s an internal emotion and fire of the soul that you try to capture. - Sandra”

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.”

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject.

Fantastic and Made of Plastic

A Solo Exhibition by Nicole Houff
Opening Night Reception: Saturday, June 18TH 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: June 18TH - July 2ND, 2022
Fantastic and Made of Plastic

Nicole is a Minneapolis photographer who lives in a plastic world inhabited by infamous residents. Her love for the “even less accurate than Barbie & Ken” realities that 50’s and 60’s entertainment portrays complements her stoic muse and her sense of humor. Additionally, Nicole's photographs have strong design and color elements, often referencing 50’s and 60’s aesthetics. With her introduction in 1959, Barbie & Ken are right at home.

Praxis Gallery presents an exhibit that portrays and parodies societal gender assumptions - playing with interpretations of conventional and absurd social tropes. Expressed through fantastic, plastic dolls, Nicole’s exhibit creates an interpretive playground that will both entertain and resonate with audiences from all gender perspectives.

 International Juried Photography Exhibition

THE ABSTRACT IMAGE

Opening Night Reception: June 18TH 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: June 18th – July 2nd, 2022

Juror: Ross Anderson

‘An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable subjects in the actual world. Some people even say it departs from true meaning, existence, and reality itself. It stands apart from the concrete whole with its purpose instead depending on conceptual meaning and intrinsic form.' John Suler

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore the world through an abstracted lens; utilizing elements of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and line to express meaning outside of traditional representational and documentary styles of photography.

FOOD ~ THE AFTERMATH

Juror | Praxis Directors 
Food photography is a still life genre used to create attractive, idealized representations of food to enhance its marketing appeal to the consumers.  Praxis is not interested in idealized food; we are interested in photography that documents the leftovers, the remains, the aftermath of food during or after its consumption. Examples of the aftermath of food include: Meal remnants, food covered plates, utensils and cups. Rotting and molding food. Food waste. Pest infested food. Dries bits, moldy bits. Food dried to surfaces. Burnt food. Food covered faces and clothing. Food dropped to surfaces. Food in environmental settings. People eating food. Food chewing, mashing, gnashing and any unvarnished representations of packaged, processed and frozen food types. 
 
Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore any possible concept of the aftermath of food.

THE BEAUTY IN MADNESS

Opening Night Reception: Sat, May 21st 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: May 21st - June 4th 2022

Curators | Praxis Directors

Madness (mental illness) is something that frightens and fascinates us all. It is a word with which we are universally familiar yet haunts the human imagination. Through centuries, in poetry, prose, drama, and the visual arts, “madness" has been on display for all to see.
 

With devastating effect, mental illness can disturb our commonsense assumptions; create unbearable disruptions in the routine of daily living; and turn our experience and our expectations upside down. And yet, it is this upside-down world view that opens a universe of unique and inventive perspectives oblivious to those free from disruptions of the mind. 
 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores ideas linked to mental health, be it conflict or humor, fiction, or fact, or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation. We welcome photographic art that questions conventional assumptions about mental health or celebrates the unique perspective only visible to those who can see the "beauty in madness”.
