Continuing the Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts summer sailing initiative, we are happy to announce our call for entry for “Under Sail”, a juried international photography exhibition showcasing the best photographic images available of the sailing experience, its people, and its destinations.
Whether seen from sea, land, or air, sailing vessels have had a timeless attraction for many. For centuries, sailing has harnessed the power of the wind to propel us across water, ice, or land. Sailing, its activities, and its destinations have attracted the artistic efforts of many creative spirits.
Even if you have never sailed yourself, your view of boats under sail, or experience of being a passenger on a sailboat, has likely been enjoyable and memorable. For those who have found sailing a pastime, sport or passion, the wind and spray of water, and the boat rocking beneath you can be a calming, energizing, and challenging experience. For many, the people and destinations involved in sailing offer an opportunity to gain a new perspective, learn a skill, or experience a destination in a unique way.
In whatever way sailing has touched your life, captured your attention, or intrigued you, show us how you have expressed that in your photography.
We welcome your entries for this exhibition to celebrate sailing, summer and the great outdoors… entry open through September 18th.
Under Sail: Experiences, People, and Destinations will open on October 20th to celebrate Sailing, Summer, and the joy of photographing outdoors. We are accepting entries now through July 12th, entry for the Call can be found on CaFE at https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=9761
