THE FOUND OBJECT

Entry Deadline: May 31, 2024
Exhibition dates: July 20 - Aug. 10, 2024

A "found object" is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, a fork, shopping carts, signs, doll heads, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera.


Praxis Gallery seeks photographic art that investigates this idiom: exploring the subject of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility, or conversely, the representation of the object as a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, an post-production processes are welcome for submission. Juried by W. Scott Olsen.

WATER ~ SKY

Entry Deadline: June 16, 2024
Exhibition dates: July 20 - Aug. 17, 2024

Water, sky, and the liminal space between them are, by definition, poetic and symbolic. There exist infinite iterations of the qualities of water and sky: water may be fluid, frozen, rippling, reflective, tranquil, turbulent, crystal-clear, submerged, or flowing. The sky may be celestial, atmospheric, airy, cloud-covered, ethereal, canopied, or infinite. The colors of water and sky span the spectrum from warm to cool; reflective silver, dark indigo, cerulean, cyan, azure, to crimson and blazing gold. Black & white photography features the fundamental nature of water and sky by emphasizing their form, texture, and contrast while stripping away the elements of color.

From ice to ether, oceans to puddles, starry nights to clouds reflected in glass—Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores the ideas of water and sky in their myriad forms. All genres, capture types, black & white, and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
