Call for Entries – JN Long Cultural Arts Center’s First Arts & Artisans Show and Sale
The first Arts & Artisans show and sale at the new JN Long Cultural Arts Complex will be May 10 – 31. Originals of artwork, photography, woodcarving, fiber arts, jewelry and ceramics may be entered. There are three categories – professional, adult, and youth 21 and younger.
“This is a people’s choice exhibit,” said Charlotte Lawson, show chair. “That means the people attending get to choose the winners.” Each person will be given a ballot and can vote for their favorite. Votes will be tallied and awards presented on June 1 from 2-4 at the artist reception and awards ceremony.
Entry fee is $10. Each person is limited to one entry. Entries will be accepted Friday and Saturday, May 2 and 3, from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday, May 4, from 1-4 pm at the JN Long Cultural Arts Complex, 425 Granbury. Hanging work must be framed and wired or gallery wrapped ready for hanging, and no larger than 24” x 36”. Three dimensional work such as sculptures must be no larger than 36” x 36” x 36” and no heavier than one person can carry. Pedestals and cases are suggested.
“For items that sell, Cleburne Friends of the Cultural Arts will receive a 20% donation,” said Lawson. “If you want to enter something just for diplay, that is fine too. For sale and not for sale items may be entered.”
“Since the show will open on May 10, election day, and JN Long is a polling place, we’re encouraging everyone to vote twice – once in the City / School elections and then again in the People’s Choice Arts & Artisans Show and Sale,” said Lawson. “And no, please don’t misunderstand that you can vote twice in the City / School elections,” she laughed.
Alden Nellis, president of Cleburne Friends of the Cultural Arts, said “We want to make Cleburne and the JN Long Cultural Arts Complex a destination for arts communities. Many area photo and art shows have closed in the last few years. That leaves a void that we are eager to fill.” He continued “Also, we are proud as can be of our new facility at JN Long and want to show it off to everyone.”

Deep Ellum Community Association Announces TUNNELVISIONS 2014 Mural Tournament (see tunnelvisions flyer)
Dallas, TX – The Deep Ellum Community Association is proud to debut the inaugural TunnelVisions 2014 Mural Tournament at the Deep Ellum Village section of the Deep Ellum Arts Festival.
Throughout the weekend, 32 mural artists from across the city will paint 4×8 panels to be attached to a pop-up, walk-through tunnel structure, invoking memories of the TunnelVisions project on Good Latimer. Each artist has exactly 4 hours to paint. 6-8 artists will paint at a time. And it will be pressure-packed, high drama.
Finished boards are added to the tunnel and over the course of the weekend, the tunnel frame will be transformed into a huge, 12’ wide by 8 foot tall, 32’ deep Mural Tunnel. Artists paint every hour of the Festival until 3pm Sunday, when the last artists finish and judging begins.
Prizes include $1500 for 1st, $750 for second, $250 for third, and a People’s Choice Award. Winners will also receive a package including a night at the Omni Hotel, and Deep Ellum gift certificates.
This exciting project will also serve as the launch of the upcoming MADE (Mural Art Deep Ellum), initiative with major announcements coming soon. The finished boards will eventually be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting MADE and the participating artists.

Call for Artists
Requests for Proposals (RFP) for the
Frisco Public Library Children’s Program Room Public Art Installation
The Frisco Public Library is seeking an artist(s) to create site–specific original artwork as part of the Children’s Program Room. The Children’s Program Room is located on the second floor of the Frisco Public Library — 6101 Frisco Square Blvd., Frisco, TX. This opportunity is open to artists living in DFW. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. April 18, 2014.
- A maximum of $200 for the artist(s) selected to realize his/her work.
- Canvas supplied by the library to complete the work.
- Art will be displayed in the Children’s Program Room from a minimum of June 1, 2014 to May 1, 2015.
The Youth Services Department of the Frisco Public Library holds over 700 programs attended by nearly 40,000 parents and children in the Children’s Program Room year-round. The library is looking to enhance the aesthetics and imaginative nature of the room by installing original, kid-friendly art that will spur children’s interest in space science.
This site-specific art work should:
- Demonstrate artistic excellence
- Be an original piece of art. Images or characters from existing children’s literature are not allowed.
- Concept should consist of multiple free-form images cut from canvas. All medias accepted except for photography. Pieces should be colorful – no black and white.
- Consider site limitations. Artwork should be able to be hung on program room walls. Artwork should not be able to be manipulated by patrons in the room.
- Create a signature presence for the room through the use of space science imagery. Astronauts, stars, galaxies, space vehicles, etc. Please avoid a classroom feel in the imagery.
- Images must appeal to children 2-3 years-old through 5th grade.
- Images should not be too detailed and should be large in nature.
- Artist is encouraged to incorporate text in some way, either through the use of the alphabet, literacy and space-related words, or labeling of objects in the art.
Information about the Site and Immediate Surroundings
The Children’s Program Room of the Frisco Public Library is located near the front entrance of the children’s library. Maximum occupancy of the room is 125 people and is circular. Room is approximately 30 feet in diameter with a ceiling height of nine feet. The room includes a projector with large screen staff uses during programs. Back of the room includes a red bench patrons sit on during programs, though many sit on the floor in the center. Room has four exits – two public exits into the library and two exits into staff workrooms. The entrance doors to the program room are red, doubled, and have six circular “porthole” windows in them for patrons to see in during a program. Walls of the room are light green with blue patterned carpeting to match the rest of the library building.
The Commissioned Artist(s) will work with the Frisco Public Library to create a site-specific, durable piece for this installation. The artwork for this site must reflect the Project Intent as described above. The Commissioned Artist(s) will be required to provide evidence of appropriate liability, property damage, and workers compensation insurance while working on the site. A W-9 form from the artist is required for payment.

A compulsion is a repetitive, excessive activity or mental exercise that a person performs in an attempt to avoid distress. Compulsive behavior is why we take giant steps over the sidewalk seams, because no one wants to step on a crack and break their mother’s back. A compulsion is an irresistible urge to act, often repetitive in nature, regardless of rational reason or logic.
We are searching for art entries that reflect particular compulsions, the nature of compulsive behavior, or art that may prove to be compulsive in design due to the artist’s own impulsive nature or repetitive process. To learn more about entry guidelines and deadline visit slantx.weebly.com
