He teaches 2-D Studio courses, including 2-D Design, Figure Drawing I & II, and Printmaking I & II. As a second-generation artist/teacher, Scaggs has been involved in art education from an early age.

Scaggs has exhibited his work in galleries and competitions throughout the U.S. He works with intaglio, relief and drawing processes.

For the first time in the Biennial’s history, all artists selected from the Open Call will be awarded a stipend.

TVAA’s Earth Day exhibit call for art

2017 Earth Day Poster

TVAA Downtown Gallery announces a call for entries (Due on March 20)
EARTH DAY April 03 – 28, 2017

Twenty million Americans took to the streets on April 22, 1970 to protest the deterioration of their environment due to the ravages of the industrial revolution. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. By 1990, Earth Day was a global event, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. Today, in spite of climate change deniers and well-funded lobbyists, Earth Day has become the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.

The TVAA Gallery will once again celebrate Earth Day this April with an exhibit of art inspired by our concern for environmental issues. Work in any medium will be considered.

Image Requirements: JPEGS should be at least 1600 pixels in any direction. Maximum file size for any individual image is 5 MB.

The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its juried summer exhibition FIGHT OR FLIGHT. This exhibition is about the practice of making art during tumultuous times. Some artists express their personal responses to world events, while others intentionally ignore what is going on and make art that becomes a refuge from the turbulence surrounding them.

Looking back to specific artists’ reactions to unsettled times, there are Picasso’s Guernica and Gerhard Richter’s cycle of paintings October 18, 1977. On the other hand, Matisse created his joyful collaged paper cutouts for his Jazz series during World War II in France, and Jackson Pollock’s poured paintings were created in the nineteen fifties during the McCarthy era. Creativity can feed off the inspiration of current events and/or a personal vision. We are looking for artists’ responses to these times in which we live, in 2017.

TVAA’s Still Life Exhibit call for entries

Prospectus: March 2017 Still Life Prospectus – Updated (doc)

March 2017 Still Life Prospectus – Updated (pdf)

Still Life

Although the French refer to still life as “nature morte” meaning “dead life,” the art form generally means a collection of still objects that had been alive, such as fruit, cut flowers or dead animals, thus “still life.” Over the centuries this genre has evolved to include most any collection of inanimate objects, whether or not portrayed realistically.  It is common for artists to learn still life drawing or painting early on in their studies. So whether it is an artwork from your past or a new project, bring out your still life paintings or drawings and celebrate this art form that has endured throughout history.

Please submit up to three entries (jpgs at 72 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side) to Curator Terri Nelson by February 20th at tvaagallery.stilllife@gmail.com

JUROR

Linda Ridgway (born 1947 in Jeffersonville, Indiana) creates poetic bronze wall reliefs that convey both autobiographical and cultural imagery. Although educated as a printmaker, Ridgway continues to
experiment with the limits of various media to create work that remains intimate regardless of scale. Ridgway’s bronzes emerge from a two-dimensional template to become new spatial objects that elucidate the artist’s personal experiences.

Linda Ridgway received an M.F.A. from Tulane University, and a B.F.A. from the Louisville School of
Art. She has participated in various solo and group exhibitions including Linda Ridgway: A Survey, Poetics of Form at the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas and the Dallas Museum of Art, Texas in 1997-98; and One Hundred Years: The Permanent Collection of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas in 2002.
