NARRATIVE ~
FIGMENTS OR FRAGMENTS

Deadline: December 15th, 2021
Exhibition Dates: Jan 15th - 29th, 2022

Juror | Emma Powell

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 seeks the submission of photographic works 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. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

EMPTY PLACES : ABANDONED SPACES

Deadline: December 31st, 2021
Exhibit Dates: Feb 19th - Mar 5th, 2022

Juror | Elizabeth Flinsch

Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed. The past continues to live in these forsaken, ruined, or empty spaces and we ask— Who were the people who lived and worked here? What were their lives like? What were their stories? What happened to them in these spaces?

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the visual and social significance of abandoned space - where derelict factories, churches, private houses or other empty places serve as the basis for creative investigation. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

FIELD ASSIGNMENT | ARTIST MEMBERS ONLY

CREATING A PERSONAL SHRINE

Deadline: January 24th, 2022
Exhibition Dates: Feb 19th - Mar 5th, 2022

Altar, Shrine, Memento - These terms are often used interchangeably. They may be as simple as a tiny matchbox or a Sacred Circle — or as elaborate as the Taj Mahal. Altars and Shrines have been created in nearly every culture and place where humans have lived. On a very personal level, they may be about solitude, reflection, and memory, but they may also be whimsical or even gaudy. The trappings of mourning and loss are the external representations and expressions of interior dialogues, offering a tangible form to our thoughts and memories - NYX
 

Praxis Gallery seeks artwork from Artist Members using an “Altoids” tin box as the basis for a shrine  containing artifacts, objects, photos, lens-based and collage art (just to name a few possibilities). All interpretations of this tin can shrine concept are welcome.  Artists are asked to submit photos of their shrine by the deadline. Eighteen shrines (the physical object) will be selected  to be shipped to Praxis for exhibit.
