Praxis Gallery Call for Entries
GALLERY 1: Theme: The Shape of Things | Juror: Elizabeth Flinsch
Entry Deadline | July 31ST, 2022
Notice of Acceptance | Aug 12TH, 2022
Exhibition Dates | Sept 24TH – Oct 8TH
The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation… an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson
The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole – often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity, and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

GALLERY 2: Theme: Liquid ~ Sky | Curated By: Praxis Directors
Entry Deadline | July 17th, 2022
Notice of Acceptance | July 23rd, 2022
Exhibition Dates | Aug 27th – Sept 10th, 2022
Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, airplanes, and rockets that push skyward.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
