Time – Call For Artists

Time – Call For Artists

Mills Pond Gallery invites artists to submit works for Time, a juried exhibition May 4 – June 1, 2019.  In today’s society, cost-effectiveness, efficiency, deadlines, and other pressures often cause us to rush anxiously about. “Time is money” is an essential value. Visual art cannot literally embody the flow, passage, or pressures of time, as potentially can music, dance, literature, and other time-based media. Yet, the concept and sense of time are often called forth by still art. Whether it is a feeling of instantaneity, timelessness, or something in between. This exhibition seeks visual works that engage the notion of time on some level, whether relating to the concept, experience, or evocation of time.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 3 Mar 2019

There is a non-refundable entry fee of $45 is for up to three images.

Juried by James H. Rubin. Entries will be judged on the originality and insight with which they embody this theme visually in traditional and new media. A brief explanation printed on a label along with the artist’s information can be helpful. The best work will succeed in conveying meaning by itself. Longer explanations will not be considered. All visual art mediums are acceptable except sound and video art. Work must be original and completed within the past four years.

Time Artist Benefits

Selected artists have the opportunity to be selected for prize awards including $800 Best in Show, $500 Second Place, and $250 Third Place, as well as to be selected by James Rubin. Rubin is one of the world’s foremost specialists in the history, theory, and criticism of nineteenth century avant-garde European Art.

Neighbourhood – Call For Artists

Neighbourhood – Call For Artists

The Santorini Biennale announces a call for artists for Neighbourhood. Neighbourhoods are simultaneously geographic and ideological biotopes, political, social and economic spaces. They are common places without impermeability as different societies and cultures need to interact between them, especially when they are called to solve common problems such as climate change, environmental pollution, urbanization, social inequalities, intolerance, criminality, terrorism, sub-birth or population explosion, economic exploitation, production of poverty, and immigration. Modern diplomacy seems to run a marathon of sovereignty and enforcement rather than a process of normalization of relations between different neighbourhoods, thus interrupting cultural exchange and contributing to the creation of closed and fearful ideological societies around the world.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 31 Jan 2019

Santorini Biennale exhibits in 27 cities around the world: Santorini, Beirut, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Detroit, Montreal, Atlanta, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Nairobi, Dakar, Rabat, Algiers, Tunis, Madrid, Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Berlin, Helsinki, Belgrade, and Izmir.

About Santorini Biennale

The Santorini Biennale is the idea of artist, designer, and economist Kyriakos Papadopoulos. It is supported significantly by many Santorinian and foreign entities. The idea for a meeting of artists from around the world in Santorini was born in 2001, when he first began to carefully observe the richness of this dramatic island and became true on 2012.

Santorini Biennale’s mission is to promote artists that are working on the borders between different art disciples, allowing them to surpass the traditional, and perhaps limiting, concepts of classicism, modernism, contemporary, and applied arts.
