The Moth Art Prize consists of €1,000 plus a two-week stay at The Moth Retreat, which is situated along a beautiful country lane in Ireland. The Moth Retreat features a large studio/living area, kitchen/breakfast room downstairs, separate brush room, bedroom, and bathroom upstairs. The accommodation is warm and inviting and a keen eye has been kept on William Morris’s golden rule: ‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.’

Testimonials

‘I’m over the moon about winning The Moth Art Prize. The Moth has always been brilliantly curated, with exquisite artwork and thoughtful writing throughout. And a couple of weeks in the countryside is exactly what my artist soul needs.’ Gregory Mortenson

‘I am so grateful to the folks at The Moth for awarding me this prize. I think getting out of New York for a bit will be healthy. It will be an amazing and much-needed time to regroup, reflect on my work and tinker with some new ideas.’ Bradley Wood

‘A lot of credit should go to The Moth, always wonderfully idiosyncratic and beautifully designed, for launching the prize and responding to figurative painting, largely ignored by the contemporary art scene. We have nothing like it in the UK.’ David Piddock

About The Moth

The Moth is a unique Irish publication, featuring fiction, poetry, and art from established and up-and-coming artists and writers from around the world. Each issue also features interviews – with the likes of Sally Rooney, Simon Armitage, Gary Shteyngart and Eimear McBride. The art in The Moth deserves as much attention as the writing. Artists whose works has been featured include Michael Carson, Wen Wu, Elizabeth Peyton, Hope Gangloff, Edgar Mendoza, Mary Sauer, Bradley Wood, Tran Nguyen, Robert C. Jackson, Lu Cong, Cesar Santos, David Piddock, Isobel Brigham, J. P.

Members of the public will be invited to watch the paintings come to life and vote for their favorite paintings on the ART 64 mobile application. The artist in each pairing with the most votes will advance to the next round.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 9 Mar 2020

A concept by NEWaukee’s Chief Idea Officer, Jeremy Fojut, the first ever ART 64 painting tournament is coming to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin on June 3 – 6, 2020.

The goal of ART 64 is to create an open art competition in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin that is live, performative, engaging and accessible for both artists and the general public. ART 64 is meant to be a platform for artists and small businesses to build and connect to new audiences.

ART 64 Artist Benefits

Participating ART 64 artists will each receive a $50 stipend, their 2’x3’ canvas per round, easel, and drop cloth. The final 32 artists will each receive $100, the final 16 artists will each receive $150, and the final eight (8) artists will each receive $500. In the last round, eight artists will compete for a $20,000 grand prize and an artist residency at Serendipity Labs in Wauwatosa to exhibit their work.

Following the tournament (June 3-6, 2020), NEWaukee will hold all paintings from the tournament for 30 days of exhibition in locations in the city of Wauwatosa. NEWaukee and ART 64 Advisory Council will determine uniform sale price for works. If sold, artists will receive 70% of sale and 30% commission will go to the City of Wauwatosa. If unsold after 30 days of exhibition, artists can claim works from NEWaukee (any shipping fees are the responsibility of the artist). If artists do not claim their artwork within 5 business days, the artist waives their right to their artwork and it will become the property of City of Wauwatosa to donate, repurpose, or discard.

Curiosity (Woodstock, IL) – Call For Artists

Curiosity (Woodstock, IL) – Call For Artists

J + K Isacson announces a call for artists for Curiosity, a five week national fine art exhibition focused on exploration of the unusual and the human need to discover.​​ Art can be a journey of exploration into the unfamiliar, or unknown, and has the power to introduce us to the new and unusual.​

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 20 Nov 2019

Artists are encouraged to submit work that explores their own personal curiosities about themselves and the world or artwork that is, itself, an unusual curiosity. All mediums are welcomed for submission. ​As an artist, what intrigues you? Is your artwork a journal for your new experiences and obsessions? Show us how you have explored new experiences or ideas through your artwork. Exhibition curated by J + K Isacson in partnership with the Old Courthouse Arts Center.

Curiosity Artist Benefits

Best in show & Honorable mention awards presented opening night. Artists/artwork from the exhibition will receive promotion online and via promotional videos sent to mailing lists and shared on social media. Artists from exhibitions that go on to a museum location are encouraged to be in invitational versions of the exhibition. Steady foot traffic throughout the week. There is good traffic flow during this exhibition due to Woodstock’s Groundhog Day festivities, which brings in tourism.

Social Equity

J + K Isacson intentionally curates for inclusion. Some themes expressly highlight artists whose voices have not been heard, including artists from different ethnicities, psychological disorders, religions, gender identity, and sexual orientation. They seek to give a platform to artists whose style of artwork or whose personal characteristics have provided them with limited opportunity to show in all our exhibitions.

About J + K Isacson

J + K Isacson works with emerging, mid-career, and museum-exhibiting artists. J + K Isacson are curators for the exhibition, working in partnership with the Northern Area Arts Council and the Old Courthouse Arts Center in Woodstock, IL. It overlooks historic Woodstock square, which you may recognize from the film Groundhog Day.

The Old Courthouse was constructed in 1857, a classic brick structure designed by one of the country’s most prominent architects, John Mills Van Osdel. The adjoining Sheriff’s House & Jail was built 30 years later. After 115 years as the focal point of McHenry County government, the county outgrew the buildings in 1972 and the complex was to be demolished for a parking lot. It was saved from the wrecker’s ball by Woodstock residents Cliff and Bev Ganschow. The Ganschows bought the buildings and began an extensive renovation program completed for American’s Bicentennial in 1976. Because of the buildings’ architectural and historical significance, both the Old Courthouse and Sheriff’s House & Jail are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
