Artist Call Detail

L.A. Photo Curator Call for Entry: "The Art of Timelessness" curated by Lisa Gizara
For International artists

Info from Gizara about call:

"The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream." Kahlil Gibran

Gizara says, “As artists- one nurtures and comes to possess a visually attuned intuition.

For some gaining this second sight takes a lifetime of hunting and searching. Others seem to be born with this keen sense of knowing. Most of us have experienced these timeless yet eternal essences. Like a memory lodged deep inside our psyche- these transitory moments are illusive and appear quick as lightning. When I recognize these split second visuals- it catches my breath and my heart beats faster while I attempt to capture the fleeting second of light, composition and memory. Please share with me your photographs that capture these mysterious and fleeting "re-memories."

Lisa Gizara has been both a photographer & painter for over thirty years. Educated at the University at Massachusetts, she feels she had no choice but to be an artist.

Gizara has extensive exhibition experience including the upcoming exhibit at The SFO Museum from May 18th - September 7th of this year.

Gizara's infrared photographic series "Surreal Escapes" was shown at the Annenberg Space for Photography's Iris Night Series with a solo show at the G2 Gallery in Venice.

A limited edition portfolio of Gizara's work was placed in the Oscar Nominee Gift Bags, and Jennifer Lawrence and Bruce Dern added Gizara's work to their private collections.

20% OF ARTIST FEES GO TO 2 CHARITIES A MONTH (10% to curator's charity & 10% to first place winner's charity)

We will waive the fee for 2 entrants in need.

Gizara has chosen the ASPCA for her charity.
