“My theory about why people like superheroes is that when we were kids, we all loved to read fairy tales. Fairy tales are all about things bigger than life: Giants, witches, trolls, dinosaurs and dragons and all sorts of imaginative things. Then you get a little bit older and you stop reading fairy tales, but you don’t ever outgrow your love of them.”

About Mills Pond Gallery
Since 1978, the council has made its home in the historic Mills Pond House. Occupied by the prosperous Mills family (early settlers of the Town of Smithtown) until 1976. This area is a rare survival of an agricultural hamlet once common on Long Iland. William Wickham Mills inherited the family land and began to construct the Mills Pond House in 1838. This Greek Revival style home is the earliest documented architect-designed house in the area.
The Mills Pond Gallery strives to promote an active process of exploration involving creativity and the arts, providing inspiring and enjoyable opportunities for visitors to explore different points of view, challenge preconceptions and prejudices, and foster critical thinking. They hope that the public will relate the art exhibited to their own life experiences, creating new links and understanding. Dedicated to showcasing the artistic development and achievements of the region and nation, exhibitions provide diverse art experiences for individuals. They reach local communities through classes, special events, and community outreach programs. Focusing on active and collaborative learning through the medium of art, they bring arts and people together to discover, enjoy, and understand the nation’s rich and diverse artistic heritage.

The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts (SkopArt) located on the Greek Island of Skopelos is offering artist residencies for 2019. Greek Island Residency studios are equipped for painters, printmakers, ceramicists, digital photographers, and videographers. Residencies are from two to four weeks from April-October. Perched high above the Aegean Sea, find a welcome respite from the hurly-burly world. Feel freedom to work in one of the best equipped studios in Europe. Experience the food, history, landscape, music, and the welcoming people of the island.
A Greek Island Residency has much to offer all ages and needs. A younger artist may need to boost their resume. Another may be working on a deadline for a project and require the time to work alone and concentrate on their project. Others may need time away from their culture and environment to find a different form of inspiration. Some bring friends or families so they may spend their free time in other pursuits. Others enjoy the exchanges that occur with artists working in the studio in different mediums or sometimes the same medium.
The journey to the island on the hydrofoil or ferry presents all residents with a 2-1/2 hour experience that is relaxing to the spirit and visually exciting as one leaves the shore and first arrives at the Port of Skiathos. It then continues for another hour to the Port of Skopelos. The quaint villages with red tile and slate roofs dot the mountains. The lush pine forests of Skopelos are in view. The coves and beaches tucked away from full view stir the imagination and call for exploration. The Skopelos staff will greet residents at the port and make sure their needs are provided as they make their way the short distance to their lodgings and the studio. The staff at Skopelos wishes the residents to find freedom to explore, experiment, and expand their artistic expressions.
Greek Island Residency Artist Benefits
A workshop is offered in painting, drawing, printmaking, and book arts on July 8-20, 2019. It is designed for all levels. The workshop begins in the historic Plaka district in Athens then continues to Skopelos Island. The instructors, Beth Curren, Carolee Jakes, and Cindy Tidler, are accomplished artists from the Washington, DC area. They have been resident artists at The Skopelos Foundation in past years. Their expertise in travel to Greece will assure participants a great creative experience.
About The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts
SkopArt’s location on a Greek Island midway between Athens and Thessaloniki in the Aegean Sea is called the green island because of the lush pine forests that meet the sea and natural springs that they say come from Mount Olympus. In spring, the pastures are awash with a varied palette of wildflowers. Goats and sheep graze on the mountains. Valleys are dotted with grapes and olive trees. Winter can be harsh with fierce winds. Some years, snow is heavy and welcome rains that replenish the water supply.
People have inhabited the island from around 2800-2000 B.C. On the area of Sendouka are found what look to be chiselled graves from what is said to be neolithic times but this is argued. Myths flourish from those times and continue today with all sorts of ways to do things especially to keep the evil eye away. Through the ages pirates, Romans, and Venetians often plundered the island until Turkish rule, though there was never a Turkish settlement on the island. Roman and Venetian ruins can still be found. In the 1960s, the state supported the development of the neighboring island of Skiathos, but it was left alone. In the 1980s, the town came under an order of preservation which has kept the village unchanged and is of extraordinary beauty.

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.
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.

Deadline: 15 Feb 2019
The aim of Pescatori Di Porte is redeveloping an area of the port of Viareggio adjacent to the new fish market while promoting contemporary art.

The competition is open to artists age of 16 and older. The participation of under 18 artists is bound to the authorization of those who exercise parental authority. In particular, the competition is aimed at artistic high schools and fine arts academies of the territory and independent artists.
The jury is composed of 14 members among artists, curators and personalities known in the Tuscan territory. The fundamental criteria for selection will be quality, research, originality, and contemporaneity as well as the creativity of the artwork proposed and consistency with the proposed theme. There will be no limitations of technique or style, as long as it’s a work of painting as faithful as possible to the result of the realization on the sheet metal door. Pictorial work means any use or manual intervention with oil, tempera, acrylic, industrial paint, ink, engraving, graphite, watercolor, or vinyl on any type of substrate. Even if pre-printed, the concept must be reproduced in a faithful way with enamel brush on corrugated metal support. The size of each work must be 50 x 60 cm in horizontal orientation.
Pescatori Di Porte Artist Benefits

Tambuca is a place open to the city and to the global tourists whom arrive in Versilia. The Tambúca Cultural Association promotes historical-artistic heritage, starting from the conception and realization of didactic to tourist routes. The editorial promotes the memory of the territory through its monuments, its past, contemporary artists, and historical places. Tambuca offers cultural events and gatherings, exhibitions, workshops, and artist residencies.
