Art must demonstrate skill in the use of the material, the importance of conserving our limited natural resources, how well the medium relates to the upcycling movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment.

No matter if your original image was shot with tri x or with a digital SLR, if the end product is a terrific black and white, then it fits the call. Sepia will be accepted.

Alexander Rutsch Award – Call For Artists

Alexander Rutsch Award – Call For Artists

Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce a call for entries for the 10th biennial Alexander Rutsch Award and Exhibition for Painting. This juried competition is open to U.S.-based artists aged 19 and older. All work submitted must be available for exhibition and be categorized as paintings.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 25 Jan 2019

Pelham Art Center is proud to sponsor this competition and award honoring the memory and artistic achievement of artist Alexander Rutsch (1916 – 1997). Rutsch actively supported Pelham Art Center for more than 25 years. After his death, friends, family, and supporters established a generous fund to support a biennial, open, juried competition in painting.

Rutsch’s work, as seen through his mastery of various art forms – sculpture, painting, print-making, and drawing – has been described as “vibrating showers of lines, bold geometries, wounded anatomically rambling scrap-wood skeletons, enigmatic totem figures, and congregations of fetishized, domesticated, and recycled rubbish heaps [that] conspire to a fantasy of Expressionism, Cubism, Dada, Fauvism, Cobra, and Primitivism.”

Rutsch’s pieces, as described by Emily Genauer, impart silence and the monumentality of primitive statuary. His sculptures are stylized to abstract construction made of “found” objects, welded and reshaped into bronze figures and animals of uncommon wit, airy grace, and individuality. His portraits are crisp, intense, spare linear characterizations that convey empathy. Pelham Art Center is proud to sponsor a competition and award to honor the memory and artistic achievement of Alexander Rutsch.

The Alexander Rutsch Award and Exhibition program continues Rutsch’s belief that art transcends all of our humanity. Rutsch saw art as “the stone in the water sending ripples throughout the universe.” His extraordinary work, rich in the celebration of life and our shared human experiences, is included in many of public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.

East Village NYC Mural – Call For Artists

East Village NYC Mural – Call For Artists

El Sol Brillante, a community garden on 12th Street between Avenues A and B in New York’s East Village, is seeking artists to create a mural along the back wall of the garden.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 1 Jul 2018

When the garden was first incorporated, a trompe l’oeil mural along the back wall depicted lines of crops extending back into the vanishing point. For years, that mural was the symbol of the garden until subsequent construction resulted in its partial demolition. The new mural should capture the spirit of the original: the infinitely renewing power and energy of nature extending outward from the garden.

A committee of garden members will meet to determine which proposals mesh best with the garden’s values and aesthetic. They will forward those proposals for consideration to the membership of the garden which will vote to determine the final project at a garden meeting.

The garden has received a grant providing for a $250 commission for the artist plus all needed supplies. An additional commission may be available. Include a proposed commission in the proposal.

About El Sol Brillante Jr Community Garden

The garden is a center of community life on 12th street, providing a haven from the hustle city life. It is a place where numerous plants flourish. The garden is a center of artistic activity, from music and dance performances to the Garden of Earthly Delights wrought iron fence created by Julie Dermansky in 1994.

Material Matters – Call For Artists

Material Matters – Call For Artists

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) announces a call for artists for Material Matters: Breaking With Tradition. As an expression of culture, art is often unconventional, rebellious, experimental, and insightful. Yet, art, by necessity, relies upon familiar traditions to achieve its unconventional ends. This is why the better we know our traditions, the more cleverly we can break them.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 12 July 2018

The annual exhibition, Material Matters, asks artists who work in a variety of traditional materials to consider the traditions underpinning their work and the rules and conventions they break in method or material. Artists are invited to submit original works that change traditional ways of seeing by demonstrating a break with the past or suggesting a new way forward, whether toward logical or illogical conclusions.

The juror, Melissa Stern, artist and journalist, will be looking for artists’ work that illuminates their vision and scope. All award selections will be made by the juror. Awards will be presented at the Opening Reception, Saturday, October 6, 2018.

This is a national juried exhibition for artists 18 years of age or older working in clay, glass, wood, metal, or fiber/textile alone or in combination. Only submit original works. All work must be for sale. BWAC will retain a 30% commission on all exhibition sales.
