Portals (Online Photography Exhibition) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Portals. Doors, windows, arches, frames, and tunnels are so much a part of our lives. There are so many ways to think about them. We can look at or through them. We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather or see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

“She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” sang the Beatles

For this call your images can focus on the “portal” itself like a closed door, a wonderful windowsill, or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes? Be creative and have fun in the process. All 2D photographic art is accepted.

NYC4PA gives photographers worldwide an opportunity to participate in themed calls for photographers. Each call offered has a different theme and 50 images win. The prizes total $3000. There is a grand prize, 3 first prizes, 3 second prizes, 3 third prizes, 20 juror’s selections, and 20 honorable mentions. All 50 winners are posted in a gallery on the NYC4PA website and included in an exhibition gallery. A professional photographer, gallery owner, or photography teacher is the juror.

Guest Artists Showcase (Piermont, NY) – Call For Artists

Guest Artists Showcase (Piermont, NY) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The Piermont Flywheel Gallery is currently accepting submissions from artists for their annual Guest Artists Showcase, now back following last year’s hiatus. A 4-week guest show will allow artists to share and showcase their talent with gallery visitors.

Enter by: 9 Dec 2021

Selected works will be chosen by a jury of gallery member artists. The number of pieces selected depends on the size of your work and the overall number of artists participating.

The showcase is a great way to come and experience the gallery and meet and mingle with current and prospective artists.

Piermont is an affluent and desirable place to live and visit. Cyclists from as far away as Brooklyn and day-trippers from New York City and New Jersey visit Piermont to take in the beautiful landscape, enjoy the Hudson River, shop the galleries and boutiques on Main Street and the Pier, and dine at its world-class restaurants.

“We want people to sense something special when they enter our gallery.” – Jeanne Treat-Tozer

About Piermont Flywheel Gallery

In 1992, Piermont’s first artist-run gallery opened its doors to the public. Twenty-four artists joined forces to create a cooperative gallery dedicated to exhibiting the finest work of artists living and working within the New York tri-state area. Piermont was still a relatively quiet community enjoying its lovely Hudson River setting.

Today, the village bustles with visitors from far and wide. The Flywheel Gallery is no longer the only co-op gallery. There is another one next door and many commercial galleries.

The Flywheel; however, can boast of being there from the beginning. When this dedicated group of artists got together to create an elegant, functional, and friendly artist-run space, Jeanne Treat-Tozer, a painter and one of the gallery’s founders, explained at the time, “We want people to sense something special when they enter our gallery. We want them to feel comfortable and confident when selecting works.”

Among the more notable members of the gallery was Alan Gussow, whose untimely death in May of 1997 was a shock to the arts community worldwide.

Deadline: 15 Aug 2021

Questions to ask yourself about your work when making a submission:

  • Does fiber making provide comfort, or do you use fiber processes to push against the boundaries of social constraints and/or civil and social unrest?

In addition to images of up to 3 artworks, please write 1-3 sentences answering one of the above 3 questions.

BWAC promotes emerging artists. Threads That Bind will highlight fiber artists who have not been able to show their work, especially due to the Covid pandemic.

Visualizing the Past Exhibition (St James, NY) – Call For Artists

Visualizing the Past Exhibition (St James, NY) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] Smithtown Township Arts Council and Mills Pond Gallery invites artists to submit works for a juried exhibition, Visualizing The Past. The theme is poet Emily Dickinson’s phrase: “Memory is a strange Bell—Jubilee, and Knell.” The exhibition is open to multiple responses to the metaphor: a bell that summons the public to a joyous celebration or rings mournfully to signal loss.

 

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 30 Jun 2021

For Visualizing the Past, artists may explore the role of remembrance—from personal reflections to universal emotions—through abstract, representational, or mixed modalities. Visual evocations of past events, landscapes, people, scenes, objects, or structures can make intangible thoughts, emotions, and concepts visible to the mind’s eye. Images that preserve the past can retard decay and disappearance. Conversely, they could give form to the inevitable ravages of time.

Whether invoking the highs or lows of cultural memory, artists can suggest what remains after a physical presence, event, or emotion has vanished. The exhibition is open to varied interpretations of the subject, from literal or narrative-inspired to far-ranging or symbolic. Representational images of remembered sights, activities, impressions, or atmosphere as well as surrealistic or abstract evocations related to the subject are welcome. Expressions may range from positive images to more melancholy soundings.

Visualizing the Past Artist Benefits

Selected artists for Visualizing the Past will have the opportunity to exhibit in an historic gallery facility that has been in business for more than fifty years and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The building was built in 1838 and has five gallery rooms, 11 foot ceilings, and lots of natural light. Artists will have the opportunity to have their art judged from national entries by art critic and cultural journalist, Carol Strickland for awards $1200 Best in Show, $800 Second Place, and $400 Third Place.

About Smithtown Township Arts Council

Incorporated in 1972, Smithtown Township Arts Council (STAC) offers a unique combination of historical preservation, cultural promotion, and arts exhibition. The Council has been committed to the arts in Suffolk County for forty-six years, working to provide a creative outlet and the opportunity to experience, investigate, and discover contemporary art and cultural issues which are engaging and relevant to the public’s daily lives and civic responsibilities. They believe the arts are indispensable in building good character in the citizens of the community as they foster communication, offer new insights on the world, and add to the greater appreciation of both life and society.

Since 1978, the Council has made its home in the historic Mills Pond House. Occupied by the prosperous Mills family (early settlers of the Town of Smithtown) until 1976, this area is a rare survival of an agricultural hamlet once common on Long Island. William Wickham Mills (a man of wealth and social prominence) inherited the family land and began to construct the Mills Pond House in 1838. This Greek Revival style home is the earliest documented architect-designed house in the area.

About Mills Pond Gallery

The Mills Pond Gallery strives to promote an active process of exploration involving creativity and the arts, providing inspiring and enjoyable opportunities for visitors to explore different points of view, challenge preconceptions and prejudices, and foster critical thinking. They hope that the public will relate the art exhibited to their own life experiences, creating new links and understanding. Dedicated to showcasing the artistic development and achievements of the region and nation, the gallery’s exhibitions provide diverse art experiences for individuals and reach the local communities through classes, special events, and community outreach programs. Focusing on active and collaborative learning through the medium of art, they bring arts and people together to discover, enjoy, and understand the nation’s rich and diverse artistic heritage.
