Call for Entries “Hidden Nature” Photography Exhibit

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, September 5, 2018

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is proud to invite you to enter our juried photography show, “Hidden Nature: Finding Beauty in the Streets of Philadelphia,” in our outdoor gallery along Pine Street in October 2018. Selected work will be enlarged to 24” x 24” in size, printed on a durable material, and mounted to a brick wall along Pine Street, viewable to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The exhibit will run from Sunday, October 7 through November 18, 2018. Both novice and experience photographers are encouraged to enter.

The beauty of nature isn’t only found in far-away places. It is right here in Philadelphia, living beside us, in harmony with us. It is in a beautiful flower growing in a brick alleyway, the sun reflecting off a park water fountain, or a pigeon strutting around Center City. For this open-air photography exhibit, they are seeking artwork that shows the surprising fragility, resilience, and marvel of nature here among us in the City of Philadelphia. Photographs should inspire passersby to imagine how we might live differently, or tread more lightly, upon our beautiful blue-green planet. “Hidden Nature” will call us to reframe our relationship with the world around us—to view it with respect, appreciation, and delight.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.

"The forms from nature that I have drawn from for these sculptures are taken from insect life-segmented, hard shelled bodies, robotic and armor coated, yet able to instantly take flight. The large scale of these otherwise small creatures comes from reality and fantasy of the prehistoric world."
