"Three themes interest me most in photography: light, color and moments.
"Light produces color. Light can be soft or intense; color can provoke or excite. It can also inform. At their best, light and color can come together at a moment in time to create an atmosphere, an emotional response and/or a sense of place. And for me, that is the power and joy of the color of light."     - Arthur Meyerson
For this call for submissions, we seek images that demonstrate the power and joy of the color of light. All capture methods and processes are welcome.
We are honored indeed that Arthur Meyerson will be the juror for The Color of Light. He will select 35 images for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery and another 40 for our Online Gallery. All 75 images will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog and posted on social media. Cash awards will be offered:

            Juror's Award: $300

We want to see what our photographers have SEEN!

Studio Altius is inviting photographers to submit artwork for their 10th Annual SEEN photography exhibition.

The top images will be displayed in the SEEN 10 show at Studio Altius from March 11-24.  Additionally, a photo book will be made featuring the finalists. This book will be available for purchase during the run of the show.  The entry fee for this show is only $10, you may enter as many times in as many categories as you wish, however, you must submit a new entry fee for every piece you enter.

The good folks at are better suited to assist you with technical issues with your online entry. For assistance, please contact during weekday business hours only, Mountain Standard Time.

The method by which ALL exhibitions are juried at Art Saint Louis is always a fair and blind/anonymous process. What this means is that at no time before or during the jurying process do our Jurors know the names of entering artists. Exhibit Jurors are presented all entrants' JPEGs in an anonymous digital image presentation and the only information provided to them pertains to the artwork and includes the following: artwork title, year, media, dimensions, and method of presentation (displayed on the wall, sits on a pedestal). To repeat: Jurors are never shown the names of any artists entrants during the jurying process. All artworks that you submit for jurying are presented one after the other in the presentation that the jurors view. So, if you are artist #25, your artworks/entries are in the presentation after artist #24 and before artist #26. From the jurying presentation and information provided about the artworks, the jurors make their selections for the final exhibit. Artwork selection decisions are in part based on a set of specific jurying instructions & criteria relating to the theme of the exhibit as well as specific conditions & rules of the Gallery. This is a FAIR jurying process. Jurors often do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls, months after an exhibit has been juried.

All artworks must either have a sale price or be marked Not for Sale (NFS).
No works marked POR (price on request) will be accepted.
Artist's sale prices listed with original entry submitted for jurying may not be changed after entry deadline.
All sales are through Art Saint Louis with 30% donation/commission on work sold to ASL and 70% to artist. Sale price includes Art Saint Louis' commission.

Artworks are insured at 50% of retail value during exhibit.
Artist responsible for work in transit to/from ASL.

All work selected for exhibit must be delivered to Gallery ready to install.
2-d work must be framed & equipped with hanging wire stretched across back of artwork.
NO sawtooth hangers, clip-style frames or keyhole mounts.
French Cleat mounts okay.
Works on canvas may be gallery-wrapped, strip-framed or framed.
2-d works must be framed or, if not framed, pre-approved presentation.

Call for Work: Deadline 2-4 December 2016

Call For Art with a focus on the human element

In an upcoming all media art exhibit titled "Presence II", Framations Art Gallery revisits a theme that focuses on the human element. Framations asks artists to enter work that visually includes people in any way either through portraiture, crowd scene, or though shadow or form. This exhibit will be on display December 9, 2016 - January 12, 2017 and entries will be due to Framations December 2 - 4. There will be an Opening Reception for the exhibit on December 9 from 6-8pm. 

During the time of this exhibit, Framations will be hosting their 6th Annual Food Drive benefiting St. Louis Area Foodbank. Each week, an estimated 57,100 people rely upon the St. Louis Area Foodbank for food assistance. In 2009, the Foodbank distributed over 22 million pounds of food. The numbers are incredible. With tough economic times and the upcoming holidays, simply having adequate meals for yourself and your family means a lot. If you feel so moved, you are encouraged to bring your unopened, non-perishable food items and toiletries to Framations December 2, 2016 -  January 12, 2017.  Donating items for the food drive will earn artists a discount on their entry fee, and will also earn our customers a 15% discount off your total purchase. 

The Juror for this exhibit will be Jamie Adams, an American painter, born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His work can be viewed on his website at  Artists can find the full entry details, including size restrictions, at

Framations is located at 218 North Main Street in St. Charles, MO. For more information visit the website at or call the gallery at 636-724-8313. Framations offers juried exhibit opportunities for artists, as well as solo exhibits.
