The Traces Left BehindJUROR:  Matthew Christopher
DEADLINE:  Monday, October 6, 2014

Whether abandoned or discarded, lost, preserved, or memorialized, the objects and places that are evidence of our histories inspire photographs.

From an abandoned crumbling factory to a greasy pizza box left curbside, from an Incan ruin to a matted soft toy washed up at water's edge, initials carved in a tree, a soiled pile of personal effects waiting beneath an overpass, these are the clues to the treasure map of humanity. The humans who left them are palpable. 

We are drawn photograph these things before they rot or crumble or disappear entirely. They are evidence of the passage of time and, ultimately, of our mortality.

About the Juror
We are very pleased that Matthew Christopher has agreed to jury this exhibition. Over the last decade Matthew has photographed the decay of American infrastructure and the dimming of the American dream. His has exhibited widely in the United States in solo He will choose 40 photographs for exhibition in the gallery, and an additional 35 for the gallery's Online Annex.  All 75 photographs will be reproduced in an exhibition catalog.

More information and application here.

Oliver O’HanlonEverloving

Interested in exploring the relationship between childhood memories and a sense of place, but contained in the present moment, O'Hanlon has been revisiting important locations which marked his life, with many of the same people. This process is a form of channeling the past to bring a narrative to childhood and adulthood. Recently, when in India, he had the feeling of turning a page. These photos are the physical result of this transition. Opened to his own past, he now can see the future. It is a celebration of life.
Oliver O'Hanlon is a commercial photographer based in Geneva, Switzerland.

                                                    JURYING, FORMATTING & MATERIALS REQUIRED
                                                    Judging is done by JPEGs on CD or by email. DVD only accepted for video entries only. Limit 2 JPEGs per artwork: 1 full view & either 1 detail OR 1 alternate view. JPEGs on ONE (1) CD that MUST be readable by both Mac & PC. JPEGs must be RGB Color (NO grayscale), 300 dpi preferred, minimum 800 pixels. Title each JPEG file to correspond to image # on the entry form using the following format: yourlastname.image1. Include printed image reference sheet with thumbnail-sized images of each artwork on CD. Do not include any unrelated files, folders or documents on CD. Please, NO iPhoto folders! Label CD with artist's full name and place in protective case for mailing. Submissions that do not comply with rules of entry will not be presented to the juror. Works selected for exhibition that are not accurately depicted by JPEGs may be removed from exhibit at Artistic Director's discretion.

                                                    Label CD with Sharpie marker with artist's full name and place in protective case for mailing. Do not send more than one CD. IF you are emailing your entry to robin@artstlouis.org, fee must be paid in advance (by mail or PayPal) and entry form scanned/emailed or mailed. Submissions that do not comply with rules of entry will not be presented to the Jurors. Works selected for exhibition that are not accurately depicted by JPEGs may be removed from exhibit at Artistic Director's discretion.

                                                    THE JURYING PROCESS
                                                    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. The 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). Jurors are never shown the names of any artists. 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. For non-thematic exhibitions, a well-rounded exhibit is based on the Jurors' aesthetics along with general exhibition criteria established for all exhibits by Art Saint Louis' Artistic Director. This is a blind process and at no time are the Jurors shown entrants' names, and oftentimes they do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls. Ours is a fair jurying process.  


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

                                                    Whether a factory, a hot dog stand, a Gothic cathedral, a home, a fence, or a constructed landscape, humans build because building is necessary. We build to make our mark, lay claim, celebrate, defend, control, shelter.

                                                     Built environments offer limitless opportunity to develop our photographic craft.  We have countless ways to interpret shape and form, mass and volume, directionals and perspectives, rhythm and repetition, color, texture and design. Add the effects of natural and/or artificial light, and the image possibilities are endless.

                                                     Photographic interpretations of the built environment have continually evolved since the origins of the medium.  How does your work contribute to the breadth of approach we find in the evolution of this photographic genre?

                                                    Water. It may be the single most precious resource we have. It sustains us, surrounds us and, as photographers, fascinates and inspires us. It is the theme of our 25th Anniversary photo contest and in order to give you the opportunity to share all that WATER means we’ve created four categories: Landscape, Portrait, Documentary, and Abstract. In color or in black-and-white, using tools that range from digital and film cameras to alternative processes, to iPhones — what does WATER mean to you?

                                                    Join our international community of photographers and share your images with our distinguished judges. The prizes are terrific, the 50 winning images are featured in The Workshops online gallery, and 5% of WATER proceeds go to the Artists of the World fund for clean, safe drinking water.

                                                    Open to all photographic imagery that can be defined as depicting "water" within the parameters of Landscape, Portrait, Documentary, or Abstract. You are welcome to enter more than one category.

Gallery-wrapped canvas accepted. NO loose plexi that is clipped or nailed to wall. If you have an alternate presentation & work is not framed, then email robin@artstlouis.org for pre-approval on final presentation before submitting it for consideration. 


                                                    We discourage 3-d works that are extremely fragile, very small, unstable or do not sit flat on a pedestal. Artist must provide all equipment necessary to present video or works that require electricity, including cords, players, monitor, etc. Works not previously shown in any exhibit in Art Saint Louis Gallery. Works not exhibited in any juried exhibit in St. Louis region 6 months prior to exhibit dates. 

                                                    JURYING, FORMATTING & MATERIALS REQUIRED
                                                    Judging is done by JPEGs on ONE CD only. Video or performance entries may use DVD. Limit 2 JPEGs per artwork: 1 full view and either 1 detail OR 1 alternate view. CD must be readable by both Mac & PC. JPEGs must be RGB Color (NO grayscale), 300 dpi preferred, minimum 800 pixels. Please do NOT send low resolution or small images. Title each JPEG file to correspond to image # on the entry form using the following format: yourlastname.image1. Include printed image reference sheet with thumbnail-sized images of each artwork on CD. Do not include any unrelated files, folders or documents on CD.

                                                    Label CD with Sharpie marker with artist's full name and place in protective case for mailing. Do not send more than one CD. IF you are unable to send a CD, contact robin@artstlouis.org & she will accept an emailed entry. Submissions that do not comply with rules of entry will not be presented to the Juror. Works selected for exhibition that are not accurately depicted by JPEGs may be removed from exhibit at Artistic Director's discretion.

                                                    THE JURYING PROCESS
                                                    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. The 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). Jurors are never shown the names of any artists. 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. For non-thematic exhibitions, a well-rounded exhibit is based on the Juror's aesthetics along with general exhibition criteria established for all exhibits by Art Saint Louis' Artistic Director. Again, this is a blind process and at no time are the Jurors shown entrants' names and oftentimes do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls. Ours is a fair jurying process.
