TVAA’s 2017 Abstracted Redacted call for art

May-TVAAA-Gallery-Poster1-471x600

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”

When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.

In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.

Curator: Jenny Keller

Dallas Edition: Call for Nasty Women Exhibition

nastywoman

This is the Dallas sister of the Nasty Women exhibition launched in New York. It is one of many national exhibitions organized around the demonstration of solidarity among female artists and allies who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, abortion rights, immigration rights, racial and environmental justice. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights.

This call is open to Nasty Women Artists of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender or non-gender identifications, economic backgrounds, immigrants and non-immigrants.

This exhibition will take place on March 3rd, the anniversary of the 1913 Women’s Suffrage Parade on Washington. We hope to honor the struggle of our fore-mothers, while also acknowledging their shortcomings. It is no secret that historically feminism has been plagued by a general white-washing of equality with only the causes of cisgendered, straight, able bodied, white women being worth fighting for. This has been a mistake in the struggle for equality. The Dallas Nasty Women Exhibition encourages explorations of women’s history and women’s rights through all of the intersectional lenses those who identify as women must push through.

100% of proceeds from the sale of artworks will go to Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center. Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center is committed to the prevention of sexual violence in North Texas and compassionately serving those impacted by it. www.dallasrapecrisis.org

Dates:
March 3, 7 – 9 pm reception and sale

March 4, gallery open 10 am – 2 pm cash/card and carry

Guidelines:
All work must be for sale. Any work that does not sell must be picked up by the artist. In an effort to raise the most funds while providing affordable art by great artists, we ask that you price your work no less than $20 and no more than $250.

Due to space limitations, work must not be larger than 12 inches in any direction. Works in any media are accepted (please email us regarding sound, video, or new media). All work must be ready to display (unframed work will be affixed to wall with clips or magnets)

While a submission fee is not required for this exhibition, there is a $5 suggested donation to offset the costs of the exhibition and support the efforts of the Studio, a space dedicated to free artist residencies in social practice and free community programming. Donations can be made here.

How to Submit Your Work:

Submission Forms must be received by February 17, 2017. The work itself must be dropped off at Sunset Studios on Sunday, February 26, between 12-3pm.

By submitting to the Nasty Women Exhibition you are agreeing to allow us to use your name and work image to help promote the exhibition. You are responsible for the drop off/shipping of your work, if it does not sell you are responsible for the pick up/shipping costs for its return. If you will be shipping work, please use 1811 Balboa Pl Dallas, TX 75224, and request a signature upon delivery.

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

diadelosmuertosaltarcall

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.

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 Gerardo.Robles@DallasCityHall.com.

 


lavirgencall

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.

EXHIBITION SCHEDULE:
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 ELIGIBILITY
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.
