New Horizons: Landscapes 2022, 5th Annual Exhibition

Landscapes are one of the long-time subjects for artists taking in the beauty of their surroundings and representing what they see. But how has it changed in recent times? What new connections to our surroundings will be found or lost?

The landscapes around us are dramatically changing as well as our relation to nature. Furthermore, will we see landscapes as mere replications or photographs or can we apply color, light, design and texture to represent the larger essence of what we see or experience.

Just as impressionism, then cubism radically changed our perception of landscape art, what new interpretations are present today? We would like to see large as well as small formats. Broad strokes, fresh outlooks, meaningful dialogs, colorful blends or a monochromatic study... What's on the horizon for new landscape work?

NYC4PA Call for Entry - The Human Body

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.) Lately there has been much focus on human body, in all aspects of our life, from the spiritual to the everyday.  What can you show in public, what can’t you show? How do we decorate our body, from tattoos to nail polish?  Should we fix a nose, a large tummy, and do we want to pierce our noses, ears, lips, navels?  How long should we let our hair grow? For this call the focus is on bodies – from head to toe, in and out of focus, as a well-lit image or silhouette, dressed or undressed. Please no sexually explicit images; nudes are just fine
