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.

Scott Troxel draws on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retrofuturist wooden wall sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. Fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age, Scott aims to make works that cannot be pinned to a specific era.  By utilizing new and reclaimed wood, metal, plastics and other materials, Scott's mixed media sculptural work defies normal classification.
