GALLERY 1: Theme: The Portrait | Juror: Layne Kennedy

Entry Deadline | April 30th, 2024
Notice of Acceptance | May 12th, 2024
Exhibition Dates | June 15 – July 13, 2024

THEME: The Portrait | JUROR: Layne Kennedy

The essence of great photographic portraiture goes beyond technical proficiency; it involves capturing the subject in a way that is emotionally resonant, visually compelling, and communicates a deeper understanding of the individual.

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the “posing.”

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. 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: Beauty in Madness | Curated By: Praxis Directors

Entry Deadline | April 16, 2024
Notice of Acceptance | April 23, 2024
Exhibition Dates | May 18 – June 8, 2024

Description:
Madness (mental illness) is something that frightens and fascinates us all. It is a word with which we are universally familiar yet haunts the human imagination. Through centuries, in poetry, prose, drama, and the visual arts, “madness” has been on display for all to see.

With devastating effect, mental illness can disturb our commonsense assumptions; create unbearable disruptions in the routine of daily living; and turn our experience and our expectations upside down. And yet, it is this upside-down world view that opens a universe of unique and inventive perspectives oblivious to those free from disruptions of the mind.

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic art that explores ideas linked to mental health, be it conflict or humor, fiction, or fact, or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. Curators: Praxis Directors
