gets in your eyes

Some people truly excel at cooking out in the elements.  I’m not talking about pimped out BBQ grills on your 400 square foot deck.  I’m talking about those folks that can rub two sticks together to make fire or bury things in the coals that turn out like gourmet treats.  I am not that girl.  I’m not really a fan of living in the elements–period.  I mastered s’mores & “Angels Riding Horeseback” (cheese dogs) in the Girl Scouts, but I got that badge by the skin of my teeth.   I CAN admit the elements ARE beautiful, and this next Call will help you prove it.  Great theme…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Five Elements.  The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($24), 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  I have a soft spot for this gallery, so please make me proud…

Five Elements

Photograph the beauty of nature, five elements provide the foundation for our entire physical world. 

Earth, and everything on it, is the product of different combinations of the five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space.  Everything found in our world is unique because it contains a varying ratio of these five elements.

Whether walking headfirst into a gale of wind or digging our hands into the soil, we possess an inherent familiarity with the elements.  All organic and inorganic substances are combinations of them, be it a time-polished rock or a shiny piece of plastic.  A multitude of spiritual practices revolve around these five important pieces of the universe.

    Vorfreude! (a new word I picked up meaning: a joyful intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures).

    Would like to point out, that the DARKROOM GALLERY allows the submitting artists to view other artist’s entries, as part of their “View and Be Viewed” option. Once the juror has made final selections, your given the chance to see all work submitted to that exhibition.

    A unique opportunity to see what others consider their best work within a given theme and not just the work chosen by the juror.

    Kudos to the DARKROOM GALLERY for what I consider to be an acknowledgement to the artist, for their time and effort in making the submission. Also a note of appreciation to ART & ART DEADLINES for their always entertaining and especially clever presentation of call for entries.

    I took a look at all the entries. “Crying Tree” is beautiful, and your inclusion is well deserved. Thanks for being a loyal reader. Happy Holidays! R.L. Gibson (Rachel), Editor
