FLYOVER COUNTRY

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 7 - 9 P.M.

CLOSING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 7 - 9 P.M.

The vast expanse of land between the East and West coasts may be one that is often overlooked and referred to as "Flyover Country", although there is tremendous pride found in the people of the American heartland and a strong presence of talented photographers. In this exhibition we are looking to identify photographs with an aesthetic that emerges from the land and culture of the center of America through portraits, documentary approaches, and images of place. By curating a boldly Midwestern story through photographs, we hope to expose visual impressions of how ordinary people, familiar land, and domestic environments establish a truth that speaks to America's strengths, fragility, and even its flaws. At a time when urban and rural parts of the United States are becoming more divided, having an avenue for conversation and mutual appreciation through visual narrative is key. Flyover Country will focus on appreciating the beauty, individuality, and vastness of an aesthetic that is uniquely Midwestern American.

FLORA

ENTRY DEADLINE - APRIL 1

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 7 - 9 P.M.

Open to all photographers internationally.

During the spring season of renewal we celebrate plant life in all its forms. FLORA will feature photographs from a spectrum of plant life and flowers that are grown and appreciated in our lives. Flowers in full bloom, or the simple emergence of a blossoming plant is a renewal for the senses after the long winter. An innate aesthetic appreciation is stimulated through the act of gazing at the fascination of flowers and plant life, and capturing this sensation through photography fulfills our universal quest for beauty. All photographic interpretations and styles are welcomed, we are seeking images of flowers and plants from subtle to bold, whether captured through still-life photography or through exploration of nature photography approaches.

Each photograph will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist. Theme based entries are not necessary. A brief artist statement is optional.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.

HUMAN REPRESENTATION - PORTRAIT

ENTRY DEADLINE - APRIL 15

RECEPTION - FRIDAY, MAY 31, 7 - 9 P. M.

Open to all photographers internationally.

The act of caputuring a moment in time through taking a photograph of someone is one of the highest gestures that a person can give. We all have the people in our lives that are important to us personally and also find people who are visually interesting. Documenting the likeness of these people as well as capturing the pure personality of a person through a range of emotional gestures is a phenomenal experience. This exhibition seeks to represent the human likeness in all of its forms, whether it is a documentary approach, a snapshot genre, if it is a fashion statement, an editorial statement, or simply a straight forward compositional body study, we are interested to exhibit the photographs of a wide range of people.

Selection will be based upon individual images.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.
