DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH

Opening Reception: Dec 18th, 2021 6pm-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Dec 18, 2021 - Jan 3rd, 2022

Guest Curator | Laura Valenti

Spinning humor out of tragedy is by no means a new phenomenon. Humor and irony are an historic way of processing fear and tragedy.

Humor and absurdity provide a healthy outlet for some people to diffuse feelings of doom and uncertainty - helping people struggling with depression and anxiety of conflicts such as our current global pandemic and civic unrest.
"Human beings are wired to cope, and we're wired to be funny -- even darkly humorous."
"Using humor as a coping strategy and connecting with other people who have that same approach has been greatly normalized through the digitization of our culture," Andrews says. "Now, people who use humor as a coping strategy have instantaneous access to millions of other people, and we find our niches and networks." Bart Andrews

 Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore humor and irony in its varied styles including: candid moments, satire, dark humor, surreal, dry and deadpan just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre.

LANDSCAPES

Opening Reception: Saturday Dec 18th, 2021 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Dec 18, 2021 - Jan 3rd, 2022

Juror: Wendi Schneider

“Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities; evidence of secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing - or of past emotional turbulence, loss, longing and regret.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic artwork that explores a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the landscape - both as a place, or an idea - as a literal expression or conceptual iteration.

NUDE GEOGRAPHIES

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday Nov 13th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Nov 13th - 27th, 2021

Guest Curator | Douglas Beasley

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, explorations of sexuality and erotica - just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre.

OPEN THEME

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, Nov 13th 6pm-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Nov 13th - 27th, 2021

Juror | Carl Corey - Guggenheim Fellow

The Photograph is an extended, loaded evidence — as if it caricatured not the figure of what it represents but its very existence... The Photograph then becomes a bizarre medium, a new form of hallucination: false on the level of perception, true on the level of time: on the one hand "it is not there", on the other "but it has been.” - Roland Barthes

Praxis Gallery presents the submission of 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.

THE SECRET LIFE OF COLOR

Opening Reception: Saturday Oct 16th 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Oct 16th - Oct 30th, 2021

Guest Curator | Ellen Carey

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.

 

Colors evoke 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 the implications of color as a central device in the creation of compelling photographic art.
