Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Momentum 2019. Though a photograph is a snapshot in time, the world around us is in constant motion.  This call is about how you capture the idea of motion/momentum in a single frame, photographs that send clearly a message to the viewer that the subject or the camera/lens is moving. Is the position of the subject the indication, a wave arched to crash, or a ballerina in mid air? Is it the subject or background blurred as a speeding train you have panned with background buildings a blur? This call is not about still life, landscape, or posed portrait images.

Deadline: 17 Mar 2019

Examples for Momentum 2019 are everywhere including the silky vision of water over a waterfall taken at a slow shutter speed, water droplets frozen in time, trees bent in blowing wind, ripples of a boat’s wake, and fireworks. Sports, transportation, and animals each afford a huge number of possibilities and, of course, there are endless ways camera and zoom action can draw the viewers eye. This is an online gallery exhibition only.

Momentum 2019 Artist Benefits

The total prizes for Momentum 2019 is $4000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 15 juror’s selections, and 25 honorable mentions.  Each of the 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. A professional photographer is the juror.

AIR Studio Paducah 2019 – Call For Artists

AIR Studio Paducah 2019 is an artist-in-residence studio and efficiency apartment located in the Lower Town Arts District of Paducah, Kentucky and six blocks from the Ohio River. AIR Studio Paducah welcomes self-motivated, focused artists working in in a range of creative practices: visual artists, photographers, architects, writers, composers, and improvisational choreographers. Applicants are encouraged to have a clear objective for their residency. Stays usually range from two weeks to three months.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 15 Feb 2019

AIR Studio Paducah 2019 Artist Benefits

The AIR Studio Paducah 2019 residency affords time and space for focused, independent work, the development of new ideas, and experimentation. Visits to area cultural centers, galleries, and performance venues as well as short trips to regional arts facilities can open up a range of networking possibilities. AIR Studio Paducah features a storefront gallery/multi-purpose space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency.

About AIR Studio Paducah

AIR Studio Paducah is in its 14th year as an artist residency program. It is situated in the heart of the LowerTown Arts District, Paducah, Kentucky. Since 2004, creatives have passed through the AIR doors to make the most of the space and a stretch of undistracted time as envisioned by founder Alonzo Davis, himself an artist.

Drawn to Paducah by the Artist Relocation Program, Davis initially considered LowerTown as the location for a personal studio/retreat. Inspired by working retreat experiences in California, Costa Rica, Connecticut, Wyoming, Colorado, and Virginia, Davis decided to establish an artist residency program. Not only would visiting artists benefit, but also their interaction with a changing influx of creatives from outside could lend an additional dynamic to the evolving LowerTown community. An active residency program would heighten the arts district’s visibility.

For most of its existence, AIR residents have been visual and fiber artists, a few photographers, and a scattering of creatives in other disciplines. The application process has since expanded and opened up to writers, architects, composers and improvisational choreographers. Geographically, AIR residents hail from all over the U.S. east, west, north, south and Canada.

“The perks of a residency at AIR Studio include time to focus on getting work done and the chance to work in the close-knit atmosphere of the community, which is generally supportive of artists… the studio space is a large open space which accommodates work in a variety of disciplines.”

Greek Island Residency – Call For Artists

Greek Island Residency – Call For Artists

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.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: Ongoing

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.

Deadline: 1 Dec 2018

Float frames are acceptable as are conventionally framed and/ or matted work so long as there is no glazing. This call is open to all forms of photography and all photo based work, alternative processes, and photo based printmaking.

The Naked Print Juror

Stephen Fisher, a master printmaker and professor at Rhode Island Collage. Stephan earned an M.F.A. in printmaking from Yale University and has spent the better part of the past 35 years teaching printmaking. In addition, Stephen is an accomplished artist with a unique application of glass plate printmaking as part of his practice.

Fisher’s work has been exhibited in a variety international venues and earned numerous awards in a wide range of competitions. His drawings and prints can be found in numerous public, corporate, and private collections. Public recognition of Fisher’s efforts include three Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Fellowships and a regional N.E.A. Fellowship.

Stephen has a fascination with the viscosity of light and the tactile, sensual quality of materials. Recognized for his hyper realistic drawings and prints he freely admits that on the most basic level all of his images are just so much dirt on paper. The tactile presence of material compulsively manipulated is perhaps the only real part of this realism.

The Naked Print Artist Benefits

This juried exhibition is your chance to show less conventional photo based work or experiment with new processes and materials. This is the opportunity you have been waiting for, a chance to exhibit work that may not conform to the framing or presentation restrictions of many galleries. There is $500 in prize money to be awarded by master printmaker Steven Fisher. $200 will be awarded for first place, $100 will be awarded for second place, and $50 for first third place. This is an incentive to try printing on aluminum, fabric, natural papers or any other less conventional surface. Challenge yourself to try something new.
