Artist Reception for Maggie Sasso & Nathaniel Stern


"Join us in the James Watrous Gallery on the 3rd floor of Overture Center to celebrate the opening of new exhibitions by Maggie Sasso and Nathaniel Stern. Sasso’s textile-based installation, Fore & Aft, evokes the legacy of sailing on the Great Lakes. The digital images from Stern’s Autumnal Tints were “performed into existence” by strapping a scanner to his body and walking along the Milwaukee lakefront. The solo exhibitions by these two innovative Milwaukee artists will be on view in the James Watrous Gallery from November 16, 2018, to January 27, 2019."

Ciera A Lampshire


Deadline: November 19, 2018

Exhibition: January 10 - February 2, 2019

A self-portrait can be a mirror that reflects both how we see (by the creative choices we make) and how the world sees us (or how we want the world to see us). Unlike a casual “selfie,” which requires nothing more than the physical presence of the subject, a good self-portrait holds nuanced clues about who the subject truly is.

Let your self-portrait tell us something about you. All capture and processing methods are welcome.

We are very pleased that Aline Smithson will jury and curate this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Smithson.

Submissions: $35 for up to 5 images, $6 each additional image.

Physical Exhibit | Through a Magnum Lens: Photographing the 1960s | June 11-September 14, 2018

The turbulence of the 1960s was made powerfully visible through the medium of documentary photography. Many of the iconic images we remember today were captured by members of Magnum, an international photographic cooperative. Commemorating the Madison Reunion and the 50th anniversary of 1968, the Kohler Art Library’s summer show selects some of the poignant moments that defined a decade. Photographers such as Philip Jones Griffiths and Mary Ellen Marks documented the political and economic turmoil that marked the decade: the Vietnam War and anti-war movement; the California Grape Strike led by Cesar Chavez; Civil Rights marches in Washington, D.C. and Selma, Alabama; student protests and strikes in Paris, France; and the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Cultural happenings such as Woodstock and the Hippie counterculture are also depicted.
On view are photobooks showcasing the work of the following Magnum photographers: Eve Arnold, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Paul Fusco, Leonard Freed, Philip Jones Griffiths, Elliott Landy, Mary Ellen Mark, Constantine Manos, Marc Riboud, W. Eugene Smith, and Dennis Stock.
This exhibit is mounted in conjunction with The Madison Reunion and is on view at the Kohler Art Library, June 11-September 14, 2018.

Responsorial: The Second Sex and the Contemporary Dialectics of Misogyny

“ Woman will not accept her status as the inessential unless she becomes again the essential in the very act of abdication. “ -Simone De Beauvoir, The Second Sex

When we explore the feminine problem today how do we consider nature, creation, and perception with related histories and myths? How does the role women occupy in creation intersect with their existence as essential or inessential in other creative and intellectual realms ? Roland Barthes states in Camera Lucida that he was, “ Straining toward the essence of her identity, struggling among images partially true, and therefore totally false. “

The New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts invites submissions of artwork that explores themes of the multifaceted relationship between nature, femininity, and creation as informed by the contemporary social climate.

Please submit one image for consideration, an artist’s bio, and cv in a single email to by June 30. The exhibition will take place the first Saturday of September 2018. Artwork delivery by August 15. Artists are responsible for delivery and pick up of all artwork. Artists currently enrolled in school are not eligible to apply.

ZEISS Photography Award 2018 "Seeing Beyond - Untold Stories"
Pushing the limits of creativity

The ZEISS Photography Award is now in its third year – and is calling on ambitious photographers from across the globe to present their work around the theme “Seeing Beyond – Untold Stories” to the international jury of experts. The focus of the photo series should be on stories that have not yet been told (or have not yet been told to the end). The theme “Untold Stories” can and should be understood in the broadest sense – the works can examine the familiar from a new perspective or cover topics that have not received much attention up until now. The goal is for photographers to push the creative boundaries and surpass themselves photographically.

The ZEISS Photography Award is jointly organized by ZEISS and the World Photography Organisation. Last year, around 4,700 photographers from 132 countries submitted more than 31,000 photos.

Photographers are asked to submit a series of 5 - 10 images, including a description of the images, online. Entries close February 6, 2018.

Juried Exhibition | Theme | The Shadow Aspect

Praxis Gallery / Deadline: 12/19/17

'Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.' Ellie Wiesel. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow - exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Minneapolis, MN, USA


The submission fee for entry is $35.00 for the first five images and $5.00 for each additional image.
