Humans – Call For Artists

Humans – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Humans. Art history is filled with images of humans that have changed our lives and changed our minds. Painting, sculpture, works on paper, and photography have engaged us in our own reflection. Photography, the most accessible medium, shows us our humanity through traditional portraiture, street photography, families, events, and selfies. This is not about equipment, it is about ideas and vision. We consider our various manifestations as we see through the lens of others. Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier Bresson, and Vivian Meier all have a unique vision of who we are.

Juried Documentary Photography – Call For Artists

Juried Documentary Photography – Call For Artists

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 13 Mar 2018

Juried Documentary Photography Exhibit Dates: April 28 – May 19. 660 Route 25A, St. James, NY 11780.

Each entry may consist of between two and four images that convey a story around a particular theme. Smithtown Township Arts Council is looking for work that focuses on visual storytelling rather than fine art photography, work that compels us to think about life outside our own little worlds, teaches us something we didn’t know, or helps us understand a situation from a new point of view.

Winning artists are invited to future winners showcase exhibit. Accepted artists have an opportunity to exhibit with documentary photography artists from across the US and be judged by a documentary photographer who is among the top in his field.

About Smithtown Township Arts Council

Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the ca. 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater “centres” applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.

Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island and the hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.

By exhibiting contemporary works of art from local to national sources, Mills Pond Gallery brings art and people together to discover, enjoy, and understand the nation’s rich and diverse artistic heritage. Exhibitions reach local communities through classes, special events, and community outreach programs that focus on active and collaborative learning.

About the Dutchess County Art Association

Exhibitions have been at the core of the DCAA mission since its inception 82 years ago. The DCAA is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for residents of the Hudson Valley through the visual arts by fostering important and relevant visual expression. The annual schedule of exhibitions is a core component in their effort to champion artists and introduce contemporary work to the community.

DCAA’s story goes back to the 1840s, when leading professional families in Poughkeepsie built elegant town homes within walking distance of the city center, notably the Greek Revival brick townhouse at 55 Noxon Street. The Gilded Age, and another housing boom, brought Poughkeepsie banker Thomas Barrett and his wife, Kate, to the house in 1900. Their son, Thomas Weeks Barrett, Jr., was born in 1902. He attended Poughkeepsie schools discovered his love for art. After graduating from the art school of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Barrett worked in NYC as a commercial artist, creating this playing card design. It was the hard times of the Depression that made Barrett House what it is today. After the Crash of 1929, Barrett returned to his family home and set up shop on the 3rd floor.

The popular response to President Roosevelt’s unprecedented governmental support for the arts inspired Barrett to organize Dutchess County’s first art exhibition in 1934 at the Luckey Platt Department Store in Poughkeepsie. Over 2,000 visitors attended on the opening day. Buoyed by the show’s success, Barrett and his colleagues founded the Dutchess County Art Association in 1935. DCAA continues their work today. They present cutting-edge art in Barrett’s boyhood home, keeping alive the spirit of creativity in our Hudson Valley community.
