Selected artists will have the opportunity to exhibit in an historic gallery facility that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Built in 1838 the gallery has 12 foot ceilings and five gallery rooms.

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. His fine art has been exhibited widely. It has received countless major awards among them The Portrait Society of America Competition (William Draper Grand Prize) and The Art Renewal Center (International Salon Competition- Best in Show).

Ginsburg enjoyed a successful twenty-four year career in illustration, retiring from the field in 2004 to concentrate again on his fine art. The artist has taught art for 60 years and offers workshops around the country and abroad in his commitment to inspire today’s artists to master realism painting.

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.

Rotating Sculpture Program 2020 (Keller, TX) – Call For Artists

Rotating Sculpture Program 2020 (Keller, TX) – Call For Artists

The City of Keller announces a call for artists for the Rotating Sculpture Program 2020. In 2017, the Keller Public Arts Board implemented a rotating public art program for outdoor sculptures in the newly updated Old Town Keller area. A $1,500 honorarium is available for each piece selected by the Board for the fourth year of the program. The City of Keller invested over $4 million in improvements for the Old Town location, including the construction of a linear pedestrian promenade, addition of outdoor seating, and community areas and installation of 11 concrete sculpture pads.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 6 Mar 2020

Old Town is home to an eclectic blend of restaurants and small businesses that attract a variety of visitors and provide great exposure for art in the area. For 2020, the Board will select up to 6 sculptures for a two-year exhibit beginning in June 2020. The artwork will be for sale for the duration of the exhibit with a 25% commission collected by the City of Keller. The selected artists will be recognized at the fourth annual Keller Art Walk on November 14, 2020.

Rotating Sculpture Program 2020 Artist Benefits

The restaurants and shops in Old Town attract a significant amount of pedestrian traffic that ensures daily exposure of the artwork to a variety of demographics. The program offers a $1500 honorarium to each selected artist and $500 to one Best in Show winner. Artists are recognized at and receive free booth space to promote and sell their work at the annual Keller Art Walk, which is hosted in the same Old Town Keller area where the sculptures are installed.

Selected artists are featured on the City’s website and social media. They will be allowed to offer their work for sale for the duration of the exhibit. The City provides and installs signage for each piece showing the artist’s name, artwork title, and a statement indicating the piece is for sale with a phone number for inquiries.

About the City of Keller

As part of a municipal government, Keller Public Arts is unique in that its programs and events are administered by the City Manager’s office and overseen by an appointed Public Arts Board. This arrangement differs from many cities that combine public art with parks and recreation. In Keller, the separation allows the program to stay truly art-focused. With a General Fund budget of less than $40,000 and no full-time staff, Keller Public Arts has developed innovative approaches to funding and coordinating its annual schedule of events, two rotating art programs, and special projects.

In 2015, the City implemented a Public Art Development fee that applies a .25% assessment to most development projects in Keller. The fee has resulted in approximately $70,000 additional annual arts revenue, allowing the volunteers on the Public Arts Board and city administrative personnel to expand Keller Public Arts into avenues that further the program’s mission of encouraging all forms of art in the community.
