Praxis Gallery - THE SHADOW ASPECT

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. JUROR | SARAH WEISS Sarah Weiss is an accomplished artist and educator with experience in photography and the local arts communities of several cities.

Sarah completed her MFA in photography at Rochester Institute of Technology and has participated in numerous exhibitions and art organizations in the local arts communities of Rochester, NY; Milwaukee, WI; Glenview, IL; and currently in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, MN.
