LIQUID ~ SKY | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION
JUROR: ELIZABETH FLINSCH • EDITOR – SHOTS MAGAZINE 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, air planes, and rockets pushing 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.
Praxis Photo Arts Center is non-profit and fiscally sponsored by Springboard for the Arts, 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor partner.
