    Spring is upon us. March is a month that always sneaks up and reminds us of new life and fresh beginnings after the long winter. It's time for Spring cleanings and to take advantage of opportunities previously lain frozen with the winter.

TheArtList.com is chock full of great opportunities to lay hold of as we embrace these new warmer months. Engage the art world around you. You'll be glad you did.

    A True Story

    Contests, Juried Art Shows - Oil, Art Gallery

    Documentary photography is present and tangible and we rely on it to be authentic and true. The Photojournalistic or Documentary approach to image-taking is a challenging job often requiring instant decisions and sometimes in the face of substantial obstacles. How do we take images that are succinct, objective, and engaging? For "A True Story" we're looking for the documented event, person, or place, whether political, religious, cultural or environmental. Reality itself is infinitely more complex that what a single image can show, so we equally encourage your Photo Essay submissions of up to six images.Juror: For the past quarter century, Peter Turnley he has been photographing in more than eighty-five countries, capturing world conflict, several major geo-political moments, portraits of political, cultural, and religious leaders as well as photo essays of a variety of social realities. He has published five books, and his images have appeared in magazines internationally including Life and National Geographic, and have graced the covers of Newsweek magazine over forty times. We are thrilled to have his extensive experience as a successful Photojournalist and Documentary Photographer applied to his mission as Juror for "A True Story."All selected entries are included in a full color exhibit catalog. Juror's Choice receives a 20x35" vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image. We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs.

    Spring Extreme Art Show

    Contests, Juried Art Shows - Acrylic, Ceramics, Crafts, Digital Media, Glass, Mosaic, Illustration, Jewelry, Mixed media, Metalsmithing, Sculpture, Watercolor, Oil, Pastel, Photography, Poetry, Video/Film Art Gallery

    The objective of the Spring Extreme Art Show is to offer a forum and venue for those artists who are fans of extreme sports to express their love of their favorite extreme sport through visual art. All artists are welcome to participate but the focus of the event is to allow an open forum where up and coming artist can display their works. It is the hope of Joshua Stone Productions, through these shows, to develop and cultivate some dialog about these sports that until late were frowned upon as rebellious tools of youth. Extreme sports, against overt speculation and down trodden oppression, has transformed itself into a now world recognized sport platform and is no longer viewed as a subculture or counter culture within the sports community. The Spring Extreme Art Show aims to celebrate this coming of age by encouraging artist to convert this physical art form into a metaphysical experience using fine art as the vehicle.

    Early Morning, After Dark: From Dawn's First to Dusk's Last Night

    Contests, Juried Art Shows - Oil, Art Gallery

    About the Call for EntriesAccording to Juror Peter Howe:"Early Morning, After Dark: Dawn's First Light to Dusk's Last is a broad topic for a photographer to undertake. This has both advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side it allows for an almost inexhaustible range of subject matter. The downside is that it makes it difficult for the photographer to focus his or her creativity into one area that adequately represents the theme. There are, however, some guidelines that I think may help. As I'm sure you might know the word photography comes from the Greek for "writing with light", and light has to be a strong component of any submission. Another point to remember is that the Call for Entry includes the phrase, "After Dark", and that light doesn't disappear at dusk but it does take on different characteristics. You should consider, one, or both of these times of light for this Call for Entry and what will prove to be a most interesting exhibition.""On the occasions that I've taught students I've tried to instill in them two ideas that may be useful in your selecting images. The first and foremost is that photography is not an intellectual medium but an emotional one. It can't tell you why something happened, but it can show you what it felt like when it happened better than any other medium. Unless the photographer can harness the viewer's emotions there's really little point in taking the photograph. I also firmly believe that photographing what you know and understand generally produces more profoundly moving images than trying to capture something you've never experienced before and know little about.
