Noir - B&W Photography Exhibit

The Pacific Art League is pleased to announce our monthly juried show in April, “Noir” dedicated to the power of black and white photographic images. This show is our second annual photography show, which reflects the greater emphasis PAL is placing on the photographic arts, through increased classes and workshops, taught by masters of the craft.


“Noir”, a show of exclusively black and white images celebrates the purest and original form of the medium. With the ubiquity of images taken on smart phones, we also want to celebrate those thoughtful, well-crafted images that reject the “snap” approach to photography and show the full range and power of the lens. We encourage you to submit your most arresting black and white image, from medium format, DSLR, film, or iPhone, sharing with us your vision of the world, through the shutter.

“Abstract” International Call - Art & Literature Journal - Deadline April 30, 2019

| Theme:

Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art which evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Reveal your most ABSTRACT thoughts.


| Eligible Submissions:

Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, photos of performance art, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words). Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Apply using the online form.


| Highlights:

Publication in a brilliant art magazine and online 2-year exhibition. Four top applicants will receive a feature section with a profile written about them. Up to 40 applicants will be selected for the full exhibition, all to be showcased in the magazine and the juried online exhibition.


| About ArtAscent:
