Urban Suburban Rural – Call For Artists

Urban Suburban Rural – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Urban Suburban Rural 2018. Urban landscapes, suburban scenes, and rural impressions are choices for life and living. What catches your eye when you visit urban, suburban, and rural areas for travel and to photograph? Is it the tall buildings of the urban landscape or the people rushing around the streets? Perhaps it is the smoke emerging from a manhole in the middle of the street or the subway zooming along. Maybe it is the suburban home, a relatively new concept in living. Is it the suburban scene at a strip mall, giant mall, or barbecue in the backyard? Is it the rural impressions you find in your country or another country – the grass, cows, horses, flowering fields, or rusted cars on the front lawn.

Deadline: 23 Apr 2018

Selected artists for Urban Suburban Rural have an opportunity to win a cash prize and live exhibition at a gallery in New York City. In addition, their images (up to fifty winners) are exhibited in an online gallery and exhibition catalog. The cash prizes amount to $3000. This call will be juried by a photographer well known in the community as either a teacher, gallery owner, or lecturer.

About Feral Factory

Feral Factory is indeed a feral organization, scrappy and roving, which has the following goals:

  • activate underutilized presentation spaces in our partner arts districts;
  • bring the arts together using visual arts, sculpture, audiovisual, theater, and dance together synergistically;
  • create opportunities for artists to make sales and for performing artists to gather audiences; and
  • engage the public in an entertaining, informative, and educational conversation about art and its role in our communities.

Feral Factory is not:

  • a gallery, but it supports galleries;
  • an art consultant, but works with art consultants;
  • an art center, but partners with art centers.

It is a moving locus for the arts, working with communities and art districts to enliven spaces, educate, and entertain.
