The exhibition attracts entries from aspiring and established artists from Northwest Indiana, Chicago suburbs, and Southwest Michigan. The entry process is entirely online.

Juror

Artist James Swanson will bring an expert eye to this year’s artwork selection process. As juror, he will help Art Barn ensure the highest standards and integrity. He will select 85 pieces for the exhibition.

The 2022 Juror, James Swanson, originally from Beloit, WI, sought to be a forest ranger but found (in his words) he “was better at painting trees than identifying them.” He received his BFA from The Columbus College of Art and Design where he studied illustration and later worked as an art director for ad agencies in Chicago, IL. He created and illustrated posters, ads, books, magazine covers, and animations. Clients included Budweiser, Bud Light, ESPN, US Tennis Open, The USA Olympic Volleyball Team, The Belmont Stakes, McDonalds, Kraft, and Soap Box Derby. Swanson discovered his passion for Plein Air painting (painting outdoors) while painting with friends.

James Swanson is represented in galleries around the United States. He is a Signature Artist member of The National Oil & Acrylic Society, The American Impressionists Society, and The Oil Painters of America. He has received numerous Best of Show Awards and the Quinquagenary Grand Prize in Painting at the 73rd Annual Wabash Valley Exhibition at the Swope Art Museum, which was later purchased by the Art Museum for their collection.

In 2014, Swanson began “Dog Day Month” challenges to celebrate the life of his golden retriever, Atticus. He paints an oil painting a day for one month using images sent to him by social media followers. Purchase proceeds are then donated to Paws Chicago.

James Swanson regularly teaches classes and workshops. He has reached international audiences online through Zoom. April 22 – 23, 2022 Art Barn School of Art will host a 2-day in-person workshop “K-9 Portraits with James Swanson.”

“I have worked in many mediums over my career and appreciate all kinds of artwork. During my review of submissions I’ll be looking for strong ideas, design and composition, as well as excellence in draftsmanship, use of color and technique.” – James Swanson

Juried Art Exhibition Artist Benefits

The exhibition opens April 2 and will run through May 19, 2022. An opening reception is scheduled for April 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Art Barn provides numerous purchase and merit awards totaling $4,000.

Public Sculpture Exhibition (Penticton, BC) – Call For Artists

Public Sculpture Exhibition (Penticton, BC) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The City of Penticton, BC, Canada announces a call for artists for their Public Sculpture Exhibition.

The Penticton Sculpture Walk Exhibition is committed to serving the public by providing access to various mediums of public sculpture. It is well noted that public art slows down the pedestal traffic, providing a positive impact on the enjoyment and mood of the general public, that influences how people see and connect within their communities, and provides an opportunity for dialogue between friends and strangers alike. Through an annual revolving collection of sculptures, the City of Penticton hopes to provide a freshness to public art that engages, connects, and provides its community with a sense of image and identity, as well as including artists as contributors to this cultural fabric.

Ranked “Miami’s Favorite Art Fair” in 2017 by the Miami New Times, Superfine Art Fair makes a triumphant return to Miami Beach. The fair will feature:

  • Networking opportunities with institutions, municipalities, and decision makers

  • Open air space surrounded by glass walls to mitigate wind
  • Commitment to reducing carbon output

“I have been incredibly busy with sales…The cachet of being in a major art fair continues to reverberate.” – Jessica Ruth Freedman | Superfine Exhibitor

“I loved every second of my Superfine Art Fair experience…I met a lot of buyers, interested gallery owners and public art representatives as well as brilliant fellow artists, and the very juicy cherry on top was that I sold 13 pieces over the 4 days! On top of that I also sold 2 more pieces after the fair had finished thanks to being on the Superfine website. It felt like I was part of a great family and I can’t wait for the next one!” – Valerie Auersperg | Superfine SF

“Unlike large corporate fairs, Superfine is an art fair run by people who love what they do. They have a passion for art and offer support and motivation to the participating artists.” – Blair Martin Cahill | Superfine LA artist

“My connections to collectors from the Superfine DC fair still echo to this day.  With my one-of-a kind creations going to collectors’ homes, sales that lead to numerous commissioned works, generating continuous interest is something I couldn’t have asked as a better art fair experience.” – Lina Alattar | Superfine DC 2019 artist

“Superfine has been a life-changing experience that accelerated my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day.” – Sean Christopher Ward | Superfine SF, NY, DC

Superfine Art Fair artists report feeling taken care of, empowered, and in control of their careers.

Curate, curate, curate. That’s the mantra for each fair. While every artist is incredible in their own way, Superfine’s team hand-picks those with individual style, a high level of professionalism, and top-quality work. You may even feel a little intimidated at first by the artists around you, but that feeling will soon switch to pride.

Superfine are big believers that a proper presentation makes all the differences. Whether open-air or indoor, art fairs exemplify a higher level of production than most art fairs for individual artists.

Buyers buy more art when they feel comfortable interacting with the artists. Superfine creates a relaxed atmosphere that encourages art sales.

[Sponsored Listing] The Piermont Flywheel Gallery is currently accepting submissions from artists for their annual Guest Artists Showcase, now back following last year’s hiatus. A 4-week guest show will allow artists to share and showcase their talent with gallery visitors.

The show will run from Thursday, January 13th through Sunday, February 6, 2022.

Selected works will be chosen by a jury of gallery member artists. The number of pieces selected depends on the size of your work and the overall number of artists participating.

The showcase is a great way to come and experience the gallery and meet and mingle with current and prospective artists.

Piermont is an affluent and desirable place to live and visit. Cyclists from as far away as Brooklyn and day-trippers from New York City and New Jersey visit Piermont to take in the beautiful landscape, enjoy the Hudson River, shop the galleries and boutiques on Main Street and the Pier, and dine at its world-class restaurants.

“We want people to sense something special when they enter our gallery.” – Jeanne Treat-Tozer

About Piermont Flywheel Gallery

In 1992, Piermont’s first artist-run gallery opened its doors to the public. Twenty-four artists joined forces to create a cooperative gallery dedicated to exhibiting the finest work of artists living and working within the New York tri-state area. Piermont was still a relatively quiet community enjoying its lovely Hudson River setting.

Today, the village bustles with visitors from far and wide. The Flywheel Gallery is no longer the only co-op gallery. There is another one next door and many commercial galleries.

The Flywheel; however, can boast of being there from the beginning. When this dedicated group of artists got together to create an elegant, functional, and friendly artist-run space, Jeanne Treat-Tozer, a painter and one of the gallery’s founders, explained at the time, “We want people to sense something special when they enter our gallery. We want them to feel comfortable and confident when selecting works.”

Among the more notable members of the gallery was Alan Gussow, whose untimely death in May of 1997 was a shock to the arts community worldwide.
