Street Photography (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

Street Photography (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Street Photography. Vivian Maier, an unknown, left behind a treasure of images she took while walking outside during time off. As did Cartier-Bresson, Frank, Meyerowitz, Arbus, Evans, and the list of accomplished street photographers goes on. Their work captured a special essence of life, not posed, not set up but there in the streets, yards, avenues, and porches we pass every day. Compelling images surround us as we walk or ride in the streets of our lives.

Deadline: 9 Sept 2020

The challenge for this contest is to shoot street images that set them apart from snapshots. Opportunities abound. Take your camera or phone outside and capture the juxtaposition of a passerby and window decoration, special look, special split second moment of communication, or scene that conveys a message or feeling. The examples are too numerous and varied to list. All 2D photography is welcome.

The total prizes for Street Photography is $4000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 20 juror’s selections, and 20 honorable mentions.  Each of the first 25 winners have an opportunity to exhibit in a New York City gallery, the Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen. The exhibit runs for two weeks. In addition, all 50 winners are posted in a gallery on the New York Center for Photographic Art website and are included in an exhibition catalog.

Opalka Gallery at The Sage Colleges in Albany, NY announces a call for artists for Infinite Uncertainty, a group exhibition. The gallery will mount a large group exhibition from September 1 to October 10, 2020, showcasing work from regional artists made during or in response to the current global pandemic and social and political unrest. The exhibition will be installed in the gallery and posted online if Opalka is not able to open to the public or if viewing is limited.

Through Infinite Uncertainty, Opalka Gallery is interested in representing the full range of artistic response to our current moment: new projects instigated, old ones revisited, creative bursts, and detours in your practice. The gallery hopes to offer insight into how the unprecedented global disruption, looming economic fallout, pain surrounding the country’s glaring social injustices, and persistent uncertainty have affected regional artists and their work.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 13 Jul 2020

Infinite Uncertainty is open to all artists of all media to participate in a group exhibition. For this call, the gallery defines regional as anyone living or working within a 100 mile radius from Albany, New York.

Participating artists are encouraged to submit proposals for performances and events (most likely virtual) such as artist lectures, panel discussions, and virtual studio visits in September and October. Concurrently, artist Daesha Devón Harris will use collected images and writing from hundreds of Capital Region residents to create a site-specific community portrait at Opalka Gallery that provides insight into what this moment in time has meant for the community.

Artists selected will receive a $200 exhibition stipend. The gallery will cover costs of shipping or pick up and delivery. The work chosen for the exhibition will be available for sale, with 60% of the sale price directly benefiting the artist.

Juror Bios

The Infinite Uncertainty exhibition will be juried by regional artists and curators Sharon Bates, Stacey Robinson, Ellen Letcher, and Julie Torres as well as Opalka Gallery staff, Judie Gilmore and Amy Griffin.

Sharon Bates is a visual artist, an independent curator, and the Founding Director of the Albany International Airport Art & Culture Program, which has become a national model for public art. As an artist, Bates has exhibited site-specific installations and mixed media work in Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; and throughout the Northeast.

He was a 2019-2020 Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellow at the Hutchins Center for African & African-American Research, at Harvard University where he researched hip-hop’s multimodal performance practice as activism. His multimedia work discusses ideas of “Black Utopias” as decolonized spaces of peace by considering Black affluent, self-sustaining communities, Black protest movements, and the arts that document(ed) them.

Artists and partners Ellen Letcher and Julie Torres have been curating independently and together for the past 10 years. They met in 2010 at Famous Accountants, the Ridgewood NY gallery that Letcher co-founded in 2009, and moved together to Hudson NY in 2016.

Contemporary Realism Juror

Max Ginsburg’s paintings are in many prominent collections including The Butler Institute of American Art, The New Britain Museum, The Washington County Museum, The Society of Illustrators Museum, The Salmagundi Club, The Art Renewal Center (ARC), and The Martin Luther King Labor Center.

The alla prima painter is praised for his political and social commentaries bringing to life on canvas the struggles of everyday people in his New York City home.

About Mills Pond Gallery

Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the ca. 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater “centres” applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.

Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island. The hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.

Mother Cabrini Memorial (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

Mother Cabrini Memorial (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

Search for artists to develop Mother Cabrini Memorial now open. To be placed in Battery Park City’s South Cove. The memorial honors the legacy of Mother Cabrini, who dedicated her life to serving her community and those in need.

New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the Mother Cabrini Memorial will be placed in Battery Park City’s South Cove in direct view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The Mother Cabrini Memorial Commission has begun its search for artists who will design and execute the Memorial honoring the legacy of Mother Cabrini. Mother Cabrini founded dozens of institutions that served the less fortunate, including educational organizations and programs to support her fellow Italian-Americans who immigrated to the United States.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 31 Jan 2020

“This memorial will honor the legacy of Mother Cabrini – a great New Yorker and Italian-American – and the Commission chose a site that perfectly symbolizes her commitment to helping new Americans settle in the United States,” Governor Cuomo said. “We want this memorial to pay tribute to the charity and goodwill she spread to countless others in her lifetime, and I look forward to seeing the designs that the artists propose to capture that spirit of her generosity.”

The Mother Cabrini Memorial Commission will review and select finalists from the submitted proposals. They will recommend proposals to the Governor for his final selection.

Mother Cabrini Memorial Artist Benefits

The budget for design and fabrication of the Memorial artwork is up to $750,000, which includes an artist fee of up to, but not greater than, 20% of the total project budget cost. The total project cost must include delivery to the site and installation.

As part of this fee, the selected artist will be required to submit a final budget, produce completed designs, select a fabricator (if not already part of the team), and oversee the fabrication and installation of the artwork as well as guide any necessary landscape restoration or other treatments required at the site, two weeks after the award notification. The staff from the Battery Park City Authority and Office of General Services will be available to provide their technical expertise and site-specific knowledge in support of the implementation of this project.

About the State of New York Governor Cuomo

Andrew M. Cuomo is the 56th Governor of New York, having assumed office on January 1, 2011. Throughout his entire life, Andrew Cuomo has had the same values and the same principles; he has not only believed in those values and principles, but he has developed the skills to fight for them – and to win.

As Governor, Andrew Cuomo has fought for social, racial and economic justice for all New Yorkers.

Under his leadership, New York passed marriage equality, a $15 minimum wage, the strongest paid family leave program in the nation, the strongest gun safety laws in the nation, equal rights for women, greater protections for immigrants, the largest investment in education in state history, cut taxes for the middle class, implemented a 2 percent property tax cap, put more New Yorkers to work than ever before, and became the first state in the nation to offer free college tuition for middle-class families. He also got the state building again – taking on projects that had been stalled for decades and using union labor every step of the way.
