Call For Applicants: Electro Etching Workshop: 11/30

The artists will take part in the process of electro-etching carried out by the specialist Alfonso Crujera.

An opportunity to take part in recent experiences in the non-toxic process of electro-etching carried out by the artist and specialist Alfonso Crujera. The residency-workshop is located in the vicinity of the biosphere reserve of the island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain). With excellent views to the Atlantic Ocean is surrounded by a quiet, natural environment, ideal for reflection and creation.

Since 2002, the artist Alfonso Crujera has been working in this workshop introducing printmakers from all over the world to the process of nontoxic etching. Author of the book, "Electro-etching handbook, a safe, non toxic approach."

Today, the classic technique of intaglio etching has been updated and reinvigorated by electrolytic etching, making the process of etching safer for printmakers and ecologically sound while providing a wider range of expressive qualities and innovative possibilities on graphical effects. The use of this technique is simple and not necessarily expensive. The wide range of technical possibilities enables printmakers to develop their skills within and continuing their art process.

The personal assistance as well as the friendly and family-like atmosphere including visits to the local contemporary art centres creates a pleasant work-friendly atmosphere.

Artists worldwide are encouraged to participate.

Residency Information:

The print workshop is 70m² and has an adjoining private studio apartment available for the resident artist. 

The area enjoys a very pleasant and moderate sub-tropical climate all year round, with average temperatures ranging between 12-28ºC.

In this natural environment, perfect for reflection and creativity, the artist has transformed the workshop into a workspace that is free from toxic emissions and respectful to the environment. 

From the natural-light studio, the residence and the balconies, you can enjoy the magnificent panorama of the sea and surrounding farmland.

It is 700 metres from the neighbourhood of San Felipe, which boasts tidal swimming pools, restaurants, and a beach ideal for surfing.

Duration: Two weeks to one month.

Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed.

What happened to them in these spaces?

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the visual and social significance of abandoned space-where derelict factories, churches, private houses or other empty places serve as the basis for creative investigation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Call for Photographers: NYC4PA Black and White Photography Prize: 12/11

Photography, in its infancy, was entirely about black and white or monochrome images.  Color was an after print add on. NYC4PA, with this call, is once again focusing on one of our favorite themes - Black and White celebrating those images still so central to the field of photography despite the introduction of color film and the vast array of image capture and post process adjustment software.

Send us your monochrome images where all the emotion, texture and beauty are expressed in shades from white to dark. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x, a digital SLR, or your phone, if the end product is a terrific monochrome image (Black and White or Sepia), it fits the call.

As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

Call for Photography: Scapes: Land, City, Hell: 12/15

For much of art history, landscapes have offered the ability to view our world from a distance, allowing the elemental to become observable. Contemporary "scapes" untouched by human hands are all but extinct as we face the effects of the Anthropocene. When humanity returns to nature, either by choice or consequence, we may discover all that remains is destruction and demise. Imagine your images examined by future archaeologists. As photographers, you are documentarians and keepers of sanity in this world. What is your view of the land, the city, or perhaps of hell?

Scapes: Land, City, Hell is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

From Giotto to Van Gogh and even Anselm Kief in painting, from Henry Draper in the field of astrophotography to Thierry Cohen's starry skies, the history of images has expressed our relationship with the sky, and these traces through which we are able today to grasp the different interpretations it has been subject to over the centuries. A mysterious space, or according to the ancients a divine kingdom, that reminds us of our origins and our destiny.

On the historical - phenomenological level, an artistic and scientific approach, in which the two aspects are in dialogue with each other, is today increasingly prevalent in the field of research on different scientific-cultural fronts, through new technological-digital tools aimed at stimulating new ways of perceiving and experiencing reality.

For the upcoming Night Skies and Astro Imaging exhibition, curated by Loosenart, photographers, video makers and visual designers are called upon to present works corresponding to the theme.
