CALL for ENTRIES: Among Trees
I dream of citrus trees. I long to have lemons and limes in constant supply. I live in snow country. It isn’t Vermont, by any means, but we see significant snow and freezing temperatures. Think I could grow patio size trees in my sunroom? Hmmm. This next call wants to see the heart of the tree as you see it. Investigate the theme…
Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Among Trees. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($20), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…
*Editor’s Note: If you enter, please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on ArtAndArtDeadlines.com. We’ve got a great history with them…including Best of Show!
CALL for ENTRIES:
We live among trees – depend on them – harvest them – eat from them – worship them – love them. To some people trees are home, to others — simply a resource. For this exhibit we want to examine the lives of trees and their intersection with our lives.
Trees transcend time as we experience it. How many of us as children have planted a tree, watched it grow and then left it behind to a new generation? Trees stand as witnesses to generations past, present and future. Trees are part of the ecological web of life on earth and whether we know it or not we all depend on them.
Show them what trees mean to you. Objects of beauty, reverence, necessity? Symbols of strength and stoicism? Monuments to the past? Victims of man’s consumption? They want to see how you envision life Among Trees.

JUROR: Time, memory and nature are the central motifs that underlie the photographic imagery of American photographer Beth Moon.
Whether she is recording the majestic, sentinel-like Baobab trees for the Portraits of Time series; capturing the strange balance between childhood innocence and the darker wisdom of nature in the project, Thy Kingdom Come; rendering menacing carnivorous plants in the Savage Garden portfolio, or constructing fanciful, dreamscapes in the Seen But Not Heard portfolio; Moon reveals a magical and intuitive appreciation for the ways in which time, memory and nature define our understanding of man’s place in the universe.
Moon studied fine art at the University of Wisconsin. Moving to England and inspired by the many ancient trees there, she decided to make a series of their portraits. She mastered platinum/palladium printing, an ideal process for her vision. Her work has been the object of numerous solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries worldwide, receiving critical acclaim. Beth now resides in Marin County, California.
AWARDS: All selected entries are exhibited in the gallery and included in a full color exhibit catalog. Juror’s Choice receives a 20×35″ vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image. People’s Choice gains free entry into a future exhibit.
SALES: Darkroom offers free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of their exhibitions, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs. For commission details, go to the bottom of the Submisssion Rules page!
