CALL for ARTISTS: 2017 Cape Girardeau Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit


The City of Cape Girardeau Public Art Committee is now accepting submissions from qualified sculptors to participate in the 2017 – 2018 Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. Now in it’s fourth year, the location of the exhibition will be along the Broadway Corridor, a nine-block span in downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Downtown is where we find our history, sense of individuality, and the mighty Mississippi – where the river turns a thousand tales! It is also home to locally owned businesses that bring flavor and matchless experiences. Places such as the city hall and federal courthouse, as well as Southeast Missouri State University and Media Row, are also found in Cape Girardeau’s Downtown. Together, these entities keep us connected and informed.

The Public Art Exhibition has been identified as yet another dynamic revitalization strategy to elevate the arts community within the region, as confirmed by the success of the past three years of exhibits. Missouri Main Street Connection has named the exhibit a finalist and semi-finalist for two State Awards in 2015 and 2016, and a piece was sold for permanent placement on Broadway!

Several locations along the Broadway Corridor in Downtown Cape Girardeau have been selected for public sculpture and yield high visibility with both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. All work entered must be freestanding and “suitable” for long-term outdoor public display within the space provided. The durability of the work and safety of the public will be a consideration for selection.

Two Free Calls for Art from the OCCC: Dia de lost Muertos Altars & La Virgen de Guadalupe


The Oak Cliff Cultural Center is now accepting submissions for the Dia de los Muertos Altar exhibit. Building a Day of the Dead altar is an important part of this popular Mexican tradition. Families build altars weeks prior to the feast day, Nov. 2nd, often having photos and offerings dedicated to departed spirits. Artists are invited to participate by creating their unique interpretation of a Dia de los Muertos altar. Non-profit organizations and schools are welcome to submit as well. Below are a few requirements.


Altars can consist of both traditional and non-traditional mediums, such as projections, paintings, and other mediums. Altar entries must not exceed more than 4ft in width and depth from the wall.

Must include a brief description of what altar will consist of along with a thumbnail sketch of what you envision. Please mention in your description if your altar requires access to power, and if you should require a table.

Submissions are due by October 14, 2016. Selected participants will be notified on October 19, 2016. Submissions and questions can be emailed to Gerardo Robles at


Dallas artist and exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, is seeking art entries for the 2016 art exhibition. The show will be presented at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, a facility of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, from December 2, 2016 to January 13, 2017.

The central theme of the exhibition is the Virgin of Guadalupe, an important and celebrated figure in Latin American religion, art, and culture. Although the symbol of the Virgin of Guadalupe is tightly connected with the history of Mexico, people from many parts of the world have found themselves attracted to the fascinating story of the dark-skinned indigenous Madonna.

The artwork created for this exhibition must depict the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, or must be primarily based on her image. The Curator will not review entries that are exact copies or replicas of the original image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Instead, artists are encouraged to create unique works of art that feature original concepts and ideas, innovative techniques and great imagination. Due to the nature of the exhibition, art that is deemed offensive will not be considered.

Dates of show: Dec. 2, 2016 – Jan.13, 2017
Delivery of artwork: November 19, 2016 (4-7PM)
Reception with the artists: December 3, 2016 (6:00PM – 8:00PM)
Art pick up: January 14, 2017 (1-3 PM)

Art in all media will be considered. Artists may submit entries as prints on paper, or as digital images on a compact disc. Art should be ready for installation at the time. No artwork shall be removed from the exhibition before the closing date.

Submission of entries constitutes agreement to the conditions set forth in this document and in the Policy for Exhibitions of the Oak Cliff Cultural Center.

Deadline for submission of CDs/prints with entries:
MUST BE received by November 5, 2016 at 5:00 PM.

ArtsGoggle Registration Deadline Sept. 1


Saturday, October 8, 2016 | Noon to 10pm
 Join us as we celebrate the 14th anniversary of ArtsGoggle, 
the Near Southside’s most beloved community arts event.
What is ArtsGoggle?

Since its inception in 2003, ArtsGoggle has evolved into a popular festival of the arts in this eclectic neighborhood of historic elegance and urbanism. This free to the public, family-friendly event attracts a crowd as diverse as the neighborhood itself with live music, artistic displays of every kind, food, drink, and fun for everyone.

ArtsGoggle is unlike any event in Fort Worth, as residents from the nearby Fairmount, Mistletoe Heights, Berkeley Place, and Ryan Place neighborhoods are joined by medical district workers and visitors from throughout the region for a community arts festival focused in the Near Southside’s Park Place and Magnolia Villages. One of the event’s goals – along with celebrating art of all kinds – is to showcase the unique and memorable character of the Near Southside. Visitors are invited to park their cars and rediscover this revitalized urban neighborhood by foot or by bicycle, including Fort Worth Bike Sharing bikes.

ArtsGoggle prides itself in hosting a casual, approachable and vibrant environment to appreciate art and learn about the talents within our own community. For more than a decade, ArtsGoggle has been the launch pad for many artists showing their work for the first time. ArtsGoggle provides a supportive setting for both aspiring and professional visual artists, to display, sell and seek comment on their artwork.
Embracing all arts, the event also boasts an impressive program of performance art and music. The 2015 ArtsGoggle featured more than 100 bands, many of which have members who live or work in the Near Southside. The entertainment at ArtsGoggle is diverse and showcases music from a variety of cultures and styles. The event partners with arts organizations across Fort Worth to draw attention to their programs. In years past ArtsGoggle has hosted the Fort Worth Opera for pop-up concerts; showcased Ballet Folklorico de Azteca for a colorful dance performance; and hosted The Bucket List Jazz Band, a band dedicated to the lifelong dream of 90-year-old Jim Milam to resurrect Dixieland Jazz.

Event hours are Noon to 10pm, a full day to offer patrons time to experience all that ArtsGoggle has to offer and will allow greater sales opportunities for our artists.

ArtsGoggle will focus on venues within the 2 mixed-use urban villages: Magnolia Village and Park Place Village. This condensed site map will provide a more manageable and enjoyable experience for our artists and patrons.

Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event. In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, we have implemented a $40 registration fee for artists. The money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.

The event is committed to keeping artist’s fees affordable by requiring a registration fee of only $40, with no others fees to participate. Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event. In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, the money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.

ArtsGoggle is free to the public, with no wristbands, tickets, admission costs. Unlike many popular for-profit events in Fort Worth, ArtsGoggle is produced by a not-for-profit community organization and thus has no need to produce revenue. Instead, the event is exclusively focused on creating an environment to appreciate and celebrate the arts. All funds raised for the event will be dedicated to producing a memorable and successful experience for artists, venues and patrons of all ages.

Near Southside, Inc., 1606 Mistletoe Blvd, Fort Worth, TX 76104


Gallery at Goggle
This fall, the Near Southside will transform its streets, sidewalks and businesses into a one-day art experience like no other.  Businesses open their doors to show off the work of a wide array of local artists.  Park Place Avenue will host GALLERY at GOGGLE, featuring fine art and gallery-quality artists inside each of the participating businesses in Park Place Village.  Participating businesses range from a windows and doors retailer to restaurants, a coworking space to a music school.  In support of the Fort Worth arts community, these businesses clear their walls, rearrange furniture, and transform their traditional work environments into a gallery space dedicated to displaying the work of ArtsGoggle artists.  Venues receive no compensation for hosting artists; in fact, the Park Place Village businesses go to great expense to become a venue, with many opening during off-hours and making adjustments to their spaces to accommodate artists.  This unique partnership between business and artist is a distinctive feature of ArtsGoggle, and furthers the conversation about the importance of art in our everyday environments.  GALLERY at GOGGLE will also include an outdoor street festival for artists and stage with live music and performace art throughtout the festival.
Artists with previous gallery experience who wish to participate indoors or outdoors at Park Place Village are able to request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application.  Once requested, we will work with Park Place Village business owners to identify a venue for your art to be exhibited. We hope you will join us for this special ArtsGoggle experience unique to Park Place Village!
MAGNOLIA VILLAGE: Taking it to the Street
In addition to Gallery at Goggle, ArtsGoggle hosts an outdoor street party spreading more than a mile across the Magnolia Village. The street festival closes Magnolia Avenue to car traffic from 8th Avenue to South Main Street and fills 16 blocks with more 650 visual artists booths and three stages with music and performance art of all varieties.

Artists wanting to participate outdoors at the Magnolia Village street party can request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application, and can now even request a specific block. All artists will be allotted a 10’x10′ space, unless a larger space is requested. Artists must provide all their own supplies including tent, tables and displays.  However, we are able to provide a small amount of electricity to each booth to power booth lights and small electric device. Tents will line the center of Magnolia Avenue, placed side-by-side and back-to-back with power running between the tents for easy access. More details are provided online in the artist application.
All ArtsGoggle participation details are below.
Artists are defined as visual artists working in studio arts. Painters, photographers, woodworkers, weavers, printmakers, sculptors, potters, jewelers, illustrators and artists of all mediums may now register online! The visual artist application fee is $40 and all money collected is used towards event production expenses.
