The Book As Art: Exhibition (Decatur, GA) – Call For Artists

The Book As Art: Exhibition (Decatur, GA) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Decatur Arts Alliance announces a call for artists for The Book As Art V.12, a juried exhibition. International artists of all mediums may apply. The exhibition will be installed in the newly renovated Fourth Floor Gallery at the Decatur Branch of the DeKalb County Public Library, home to the Georgia Center for the Book.

The Book as Art series seeks to showcase beautifully made volumes, sculptural and conceptual interpretations, one-of-a-kind approaches to the book format, and wall-hung interpretations.

 

Click here for the application / registration

Enter by: 17 June 2024

There is an application fee of $30, with which artists may submit up to 3 pieces for consideration. Each work requires its own unique application, but a coupon code is provided in the application instructions that permits 2 additional submissions without charge. For each application, artists are required to include 1-5 images of the submitted artwork and/or may include 1 video.

The Book As Art Theme

The Book As Art v.12: Rock, Paper, Scissors is the twelfth edition of an art show celebrating books: objects that, in an increasingly digital world, stubbornly survive.

Rock, Paper, Scissors draws its inspiration from the childhood game of chance. This zero-sum game, played with symbols made with the players’ hands, has origins dating back to Han Dynasty China, and later, Japan.

The game can have many variations: number of players, different names, or a reordering of the words: “rock,” “paper,” and “scissors.” Whether these objects are animals or elements, the concept remains the same. By using a simple mathematical formula, hand symbols, and a bit of luck, a decision is produced for the combatants.

The objects in this exhibition should interpret the concept of the book and invite the viewer to look beyond the printed page to where ideas, words, and symbols are transformed and are transfigured. Artists are challenged to look inward and outward, to interpret and embrace the childlike fun of this seemingly simple, classic game that blends history, nature, and mathematics with a bit of luck.

Or, simply give yourself over, and play a game of chance! 1, 2, 3…

Artist Benefits

Awards:

  • Best of Show: $1,000
  • Gold Award: $700
  • Silver Award: $500

Purchase awards totaling $2,500 are selected by the City of Decatur for inclusion in its public art collection. Local universities and institutions regularly purchase work from this exhibition.

Sales are encouraged. The Decatur Arts Alliance handles all sales and collects a 25% commission on all artwork sold as a result of this exhibition. All artwork for sale must be priced by the artist and so stated in the entry. Please be sure to include the 25% commission for the Decatur Arts Alliance in your price. The 8% Georgia sales tax will be added at the point of sale. Sales from the Fine Art Exhibition have increased each year and works from the exhibition have been added to private, corporate, and non-profit collections.

The Book as Art is an annual showcase that’s made possible through partnership between the Decatur Arts Alliance, the Dekalb County Public Library, and the Georgia Center for the Book. Located in Downtown Decatur, GA, the exhibition is accessible to the greater Atlanta community and a free art experience for local residents and tourists.

Joy! A Celebration of Queer Happiness (Fredericksburg, VA) – Call For Artists

Joy! A Celebration of Queer Happiness (Fredericksburg, VA) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Libertytown Arts Workshop announces a call for artists for Joy! A Celebration of Queer Happiness, a national juried art exhibition.

LibertyTown doesn’t want to candy coat anything, or be toxically positive, but it seems like everything that everyone is working toward with Pride is about the basic right to be safe and happy. While that is simple in concept, it’s not so simple to achieve with all the hate that still poisons the well. That’s what makes Pride so moving for LibertyTown. It’s an expression of effervescent joy; the kind of joy that only comes from emerging or being released from oppression. Joy in the face of oppression is defiant. It is a protest. LibertyTown feels like that is the core of contemporary Pride. Show them your art that celebrates defiant joy, be it in the smallest moments of domesticity or the larger expressions of breaking free.
