Patterns and Shadows 2019 (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

Patterns and Shadows 2019 (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Patterns and Shadows 2019. The city in the early morning or late afternoon presents an intensified visual as the buildings, the cars, and even the pedestrians present long deep shadows. Look more closely at the buildings at any time of day and note the patterns in architecture, and windows. This call is all about images where the visual impact stems from shadows or repetitive shapes/patterns. Consider the patterns in rows of theater seats, late afternoon light on steps transforming it into repeated black and white stripes, your own shadow, or that of an athlete sprinting in the park in the early hours.

About The American Artists Professional League

In 1928 F. Ballard Williams, Assistant Treasure of the National Academy of Design in New York, called a meeting of 15 members of the Salmagundi Club. The purpose: to discuss the need for a national organization to meet the increasing interests in traditional realism in American art. The attendees all agreed that an organization designed to protect artists’ interests and promote traditional American art was necessary. The American Artists Professional League (AAPL) was born.

The AAPL first focused on the issue of obtaining commissions of official portraits for American Artists. By using its national stature, the AAPL influenced a rider to a Congressional Bill stipulating that all official portraits paid for with taxpayers’ dollars were to be painted by American artists. A fact that remains in effect to this day.
