International Juried Photography Exhibition

WATER ~ SKY

Notification: June 23, 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 presents photographic artwork that explores the ideas of water and sky in their myriad forms.

THE PORTRAIT

Opening Reception | Sat. June 15, 6 - 8PM
Exhibition Dates: June 15 - July 13, 2024

"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. Juried by Layne Kennedy

LYON ~ REDUX

A Solo Exhibition by

Allen Gronhovd

Opening Night Reception: Sat. June 15, 6–8PM
Exhibition Dates: June 15 – July 13, 2024

Most of the images in this exhibit were taken in Lyon, France, between 1974 and 1988, with a few from places like Naples, Italy. I found Lyon to be a fascinating place to explore, offering countless observation spots. In black and white photography, pinpointing the exact date of a picture can be challenging without overt markers of time and place.

 

The photographers who influenced me during this period included Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus, and Brassaï - and filmmakers such as François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, and Jean-Pierre Melville.

Opening Night Reception: Sat. June 15, 6–8PM
Exhibition Dates: June 15 – July 13, 2024

Hollywoodland is a series of portrait photographs that examines issues of gender that lie beneath the glamourised aesthetic surface of the 1950s and 1960s. Inspired by my endless fascination with classical Hollywood cinema, this series explores women’s idealisation, objectification, and vilification within society as propagated by the silver screen.

THE FOUND OBJECT

Opening Reception: Sat. July 20, 6-8PM
Exhibition dates: July 20 – Aug. 17, 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 presents 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 Jonathan Pavlica.

THE STREETS
 International Juried Photography Exhibition

Opening Reception: SAT. XXXXX, 6–8PM CST
Exhibition Dates: XXXXXXXXX, 2024

"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930s. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city dweller interacts with his or her environment."
 
Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production were considered.​​​

 International Juried Photography Exhibition

DREAM SCAPES

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.
