Art Of Music – Call For Artists


Art Of Music – Call For Artists

Beauty Art Gallery announces a call for artists, 18 years old and above, to submit artwork to the Art of Music juried exhibition.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 04-15-2017

Most of us love music, musicians, musical themes, instruments, social experiences of music and so forth. What happens when visual artists depict how music feels or what it means to them? Can your art express the nuances of music? Humankind has a long history of artistic expression. Archaeologists trace these activities to the Paleolithic era with cave paintings and bone flutes dating to about 38,000 BCE. That is a long history and perhaps explains our compulsion to create and admire these forms. The Art of Music exhibition seeks the visual expression of actions, feelings, and moods inspired by music, lyrics, and musical performances.

Entry Fee is $30 for 2 pieces. A third piece may be entered for additional $10. Exhibition juror is Nathan Durnin.

Awards of cash, merchandise, and publicity have a cumulative cash value of more than $1,000. Each award also includes a merit certificate.

  • First Award is $250
  • Second Award is $150 each
  • 3rd Award is $75
  • Juror’s Award for Excellence is $100
  • People’s Choice Award is $50
  • Delaware County Symphony 2017-2018 Season Theme Image Award
  • Honorable Mentions: $50 gift certificate

One work will be selected by DCS’ Brochure Committee for use (via digital format) in a year-long promotion for DCS’ next season. The work and artist will be recognized in a press release and photo, on the website, and in brochures. The artist will also receive a pair of tickets to the season.

Pressing On – Contemporary Printmaking – Call For Artists


Pressing On – Contemporary Printmaking – Call For Artists

Richmond Art Center announces a call for artists for Pressing On – Contemporary Printmaking Juried Exhibition.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 10 Apr 2017

The Richmond Art Center presents important and highly regarded exhibitions. This focus on current printmaking practices is a very timely issue.  Pressing On offers the opportunity to see the most contemporary explorations in contemporary printmaking. In a time when things happen with the push of a button, the hands-on mixing of materials and process is still magical. Much work in immediate response to the political and social issues confronting us today is coming out of studios and seeking attention. Richmond Art Center invites the current trends in printmaking, private view, personal voice, and public position, as artists keep Pressing On.

Karin Breuer, juror, is Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Graphic Arts Foundation of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. In a career spanning decades, Karin Breuer has mounted exhibitions ranging from the scholarly depths of Japanese woodblock prints and their influence on Western art to the archives of local art presses. Other exhibitions include the flowering of California printmaking and the idiosyncratic, humor-infused screen prints of Ed Ruscha.

This is an opportunity to be exhibited in a select group. This places the artist’s work in a seriously considered context and venue.  This promises to be an engaging and relevant exhibition. There are prizes to be awarded amounting to $1,000.

About the Richmond Art Center

The Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay. They deliver exciting arts experiences to young and old alike who reflect the diverse richness of the community. They do this through hands-on learning, well-equipped studios, traveling Art in the Community programs, and contemporary exhibitions in the galleries.

Every year, the Center serves thousands of students through classes and programs taught by professional artists. Programs are onsite and throughout Richmond. The four galleries allow them to mount rotating exhibitions that display the works of Bay Area artists. Artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Jay DeFeo, Wanxin Zhang, Hung Liu, Ed Rossbach, and Peter Voulkos have been showcased at the Center.

The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936 when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond. She had a suitcase packed with art supplies and was eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything the Center does continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: that within every person lives an artist.

This Is Now – Call For Artists


ROY G BIV Gallery for Emerging Artists seeks artwork for This Is Now, the 6th exhibition in partnership with the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Carnegie Gallery at Main Library.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 24 Feb 2017

The exhibition will take place from May 11­­–June 24. It will be juried by Mabi Ponce de León, April Sunami, and Marshall Shorts.

This Is Now is an exhibition exploring issues of identity in 2017. In recent years, we have seen an expanding number of ways to identify each other and ourselves. Sometimes this has a positive effect. People can draw power from declaring an identity and use it to create a sense of solidarity and form strong communities. Other times, these identities divide people into warring tribes or are imposed on one group by another as a form of aggression. These multiplying categories can also be insufficient. Many people still find themselves outside of them. Rarely can any one category describe the full complexities of an individual.

What is your relationship to identity? Are you a proud member of a group, forging your own identity on new ground, or suspicious of the idea of categories and how they divide us? All of the above? Something else? ROY G BIV Gallery is looking for work addressing identity from artists of diverse races, genders, sexualities, religions, cultures, nationalities, ages, and classes.

Artists selected by our jurors for This Is Now will receive an opportunity to exhibit work at the recently remodeled Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Carnegie Gallery at Main Library. The exhibition will be in a busy public venue. There is the possibility of a monetary award in the form of a juror’s choice award awarded to a small subset of the exhibiting artists. Award is at the discretion of the three participating jurors. All of whom are notable figures in the Columbus arts’ community.

About ROY G BIV Gallery

ROY G BIV Gallery is a nonprofit art gallery located in the historic Short North Arts District in Columbus, Ohio. Founded in 1989, ROY G BIV is known for showcasing innovative contemporary art by emerging artists from around the world.

ROY G BIV’s programming enhances Central Ohio’s cultural landscape by exposing the public to current modes of art-making and thinking. Artists chosen to exhibit at ROY G BIV receive constructive criticism and educational feedback from the public, the artists’ peers, eminent jurors, and the press. Inclusion in a ROY G BIV exhibition is often the opportunity that an emerging artist needs to begin to court commercial gallery representation.
