Glass 2017 – Call For Artists

Glass 2017 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Glass 2017.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 19 Jun 2017

Is the glass half full or half empty?
People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
We work on shattering the glass ceiling.
The ice is as smooth as glass.

What is so magical about this substance, made from sand, that it comes up in so many proverbs and sayings? It is magical – the invention of glass allowed us, for the first time, to be able to observe things while having a barrier to keep us warm, safe, and dry. We can store liquids safely and know how much is left in the bottle. Glass is not only a practical solution to so many situations, but also the foundation for an entire area of art. Think of Dale Chihuly. Whether you create wonderful images about drinking glasses, eye glasses, wavy window panes, or glass beads, Murano glass, or beach glass, it all works.

Chosen artists for Glass 2017 will have a live exhibition in a New York City gallery, Jadite Gallery, in October, 2017. There will be an exhibition catalog and an online gallery on the NYC4PA website. Juror, Traer Scott, has juried shows for NYC4PA previously and is an excellent juror.

About the New York Center for Photographic Art

Art Of Music – Call For Artists

Art Of Music – Call For Artists

Beauty Art Gallery announces a call for artists, 18 years old and above, to submit artwork to the Art of Music juried exhibition.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 04-15-2017

Most of us love music, musicians, musical themes, instruments, social experiences of music and so forth. What happens when visual artists depict how music feels or what it means to them? Can your art express the nuances of music? Humankind has a long history of artistic expression. Archaeologists trace these activities to the Paleolithic era with cave paintings and bone flutes dating to about 38,000 BCE. That is a long history and perhaps explains our compulsion to create and admire these forms. The Art of Music exhibition seeks the visual expression of actions, feelings, and moods inspired by music, lyrics, and musical performances.

Entry Fee is $30 for 2 pieces. A third piece may be entered for additional $10. Exhibition juror is Nathan Durnin.

Awards of cash, merchandise, and publicity have a cumulative cash value of more than $1,000. Each award also includes a merit certificate.

  • First Award is $250
  • Second Award is $150 each
  • 3rd Award is $75
  • Juror’s Award for Excellence is $100
  • People’s Choice Award is $50
  • Delaware County Symphony 2017-2018 Season Theme Image Award
  • Honorable Mentions: $50 gift certificate

One work will be selected by DCS’ Brochure Committee for use (via digital format) in a year-long promotion for DCS’ next season. The work and artist will be recognized in a press release and photo, on the website, and in brochures. The artist will also receive a pair of tickets to the season.

Photographers of all levels are invited to submit work reflecting the theme Earth to A Smith Gallery.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 5 Dec 2016

We, our children, and grandchildren now have the very distinct possibility of watching things we love be lost. Climate change is upon us and this miraculous galactic ball we call home is in peril. The immediacy of climate change, for myself and many others, has caused the simple act of looking/seeing to miraculously illuminate a vibrating panorama of aesthetic/emotional triggers. Everything has the potential of striking our bell. Everything has the possibility of becoming a lost loved one in a cherished photograph – a shoreline, cottage, animal, insect, smile, shoe, or taste.

Entries of eleven or more images are eligible for a review by the gallery directors. The entry fee is $35 for the first five images and $6 for each additional image. Fifty to sixty images will be selected for exhibition and shown at the gallery from February 3 to March 12, 2017. A reception will be held on February 25, 2017 from 4 to 8pm.
