THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude call for artists

THANK ART: A Pop Up Show About Artistic Gratitude

Webpage for the show is at http://www.thankart.tumblr.com. The deadline for entering is November 1, 2017. The exhibition runs from November 6 to November 12 2017 with a reception on November 10, 2017.

Art has been an experience that has encompassed many meanings for me. Inspiration, escape, freedom, chance and dreams. I’m thankful for art for its diverse nature and how its significance has adapted to me as I’ve progressed through life.

Why do you THANK ART?

I’m inviting artists to share their interpretation of the theme THANK ART for an upcoming fall pop up show. Artists with work that meditates on the appreciation of the creative process in its various forms and guises are encouraged to submit. The expression of artistic gratitude in the work does not have to be explicit and can be defined in loose terms.

For instance, thankfulness for an artwork can be expressed because of its emotional experience or thankfulness can be expressed because the process of making a work offered some relief. There are no limits to your depiction of gratitude.

The exhibition will be on view at Dr. Jeckyll’s Beer Lab on 2420 West Park Row, Pantego, TX 76013.

If you’re interested in exhibiting please send three images of your work along with a short artist’s statement that describes how your relates to the theme of THANK ART TO Kim at submitarttokim@gmail.com.

Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale

FORT WORTH COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER IS PROUD TO PRESENT:
Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale

EXHIBITION DATES: October 6 – October 25, 2017 RECEPTION: Friday, October 6, 2017 6pm-9pm

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION – September 15, 2017

Art in the Metroplex was first held in 1983. At its root, the exhibit was the brainchild of two people who wanted to work together. Beth Lea Clardy was an established Fort Worth artist, a 1940 graduate of the TCU art program and one of a quartet of concerned citizens who in 1978 founded the non-profit Committee for an Artists’ Center. Ronald Watson was an artist and educator on the faculty of the TCU Department of Art and Art History. He assumed the chairmanship of the TCU art department in 1982 with a goal of “seeking greater collaboration between the university and Fort Worth artists and organizations. Through its proud 33 year history, Art in the Metroplex has exhibited the work of thousands of local artists but much like all great things, it too must come to an end. Watch for details about a new show at this time next year in its place.

CALL TO ARTISTS: Open call to all artists in the DFW Metroplex and surrounding areas – Tarrant, Dallas, Collin, Cooke, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufmann, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell and Wise. Open to artists over the age of 18, all disciplines with no theme. All medias including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art. Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale will occur in our premier, 3000 square foot, Front Gallery at The Arts Center. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person.

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.

Dutch Art Gallery 2017 Fall Show call for entries

11th Annual Fall Show Art Entry Registration

ART CALL FOR ENTRY – The Dutch Art Gallery announces an art call for the annual juried art competition, “Do You See What I See”. The Gallery urges Artists to submit their best interpretation of this “Theme”- (Interpretation described below) for inclusion into the Dutch Art Gallery’s Saturday, December 2, 2017 11th annual Fall Show.

Art Leagues, Local, Regional and National Memberships please forward the invitation to members to submit an original entry in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and/or mixed media.

This theme could include the following interpretations:

  • Abstract/Modern artwork. Example: Hidden image that conveys a hidden image or emotional feeling
  • Traditional artwork.  Example: Boulder, plant, tree, etc. that has a hidden image in it.
  • A unique perspective. Example: Flower or bug (any object) with a magnified view that takes the piece into an Abstract, or traditional image.

The plan is for the Gallery to have a folded card next to the artwork describing the hidden element the Artist saw or created in the piece. This allows the customer to observe and participate with the Artist…almost like a treasure hunt.

2017 Art of the Heartland call for entries

We have extended the deadline to receive entries to the Art of the Heartland National Competition by one week!  Summer vacations, a flurry to get kids back to school, etc. has made this a busy summer for everyone.  Artists have rushed to get their entries ready and some ran out of time.  Begging for a few more days, we agreed.  We are giving artists until August 22, midnight, mountain time, to get in those last minute entries.  Immediately after, all scoring will be finalized.  Here is a direct link to our entry form and information on CaFE:  https://www.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=4315

We are excited about the way the Art of the Heartland show is shaping up.  It is going to be better than ever this year. There is a wonderful diversity of subjects, techniques and artists from all over the United States.  It is absolutely a show in which you will want to be a part.  Please do pass the information on to your artists friends and organizations.

Seven awards will be given, ranging from $4,000 for Best in Show, to 3 specific categories @ $500 each.  Three other awards are more specific.  We always give extra support to artists in our home state with a $1,000 award specifically for an Arkansas artist.  A well known animal lover has donated $1,000 as the “Forbis Memorial Award” for the best painting with an animal as the main subject.  A beloved benefactor has pledged $1,500 as the Bob Carver Memorial Award.  The recipient of that award will be the painting, amongst all subjects, that places just behind Best in Show.  The three other category awards (in addition to animal) are for figure, landscape and still life, upping your odds considerably for these.  You now have a little more time to compete for these great prizes.  Enter today!

Last but not least, you are invited to join us for the private reception and Awards presentation on Saturday, October 6 from 6 until 8 pm at the Mena Art Gallery, Mena, Arkansas.  Please RSVP if you plan to attend.  It is also a chance to meet our show judge, Andre Pater (www.andrepater.com), a world renowned artist, crowned internationally as the greatest sporting artist since the death of Sir Alfred Munnings.  Andre consistently sets new sales records for his works, primarily in oil and pastels.  Recently a pastel sold, even before completion, for a record $250,000.  This is your chance to meet a living legend.

Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale entry deadline Sept. 15

FORT WORTH COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER IS PROUD TO PRESENT: Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale

EXHIBITION DATES: October 6 – October 25, 2017 RECEPTION: Friday, October 6, 2017 6pm-9pm

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION – September 15, 2017

https://fortworthcommunityartscenter.submittable.com/submit/91730/art-in-the-metroplex-grand-finale

Art in the Metroplex was first held in 1983. At its root, the exhibit was the brainchild of two people who wanted to work together. Beth Lea Clardy was an established Fort Worth artist, a 1940 graduate of the TCU art program and one of a quartet of concerned citizens who in 1978 founded the non-profit Committee for an Artists’ Center. Ronald Watson was an artist and educator on the faculty of the TCU Department of Art and Art History. He assumed the chairmanship of the TCU art department in 1982 with a goal of “seeking greater collaboration between the university and Fort Worth artists and organizations. Through its proud 33 year history, Art in the Metroplex has exhibited the work of thousands of local artists but much like all great things, it too must come to an end. Ann Ekstrom, daughter of Clardy and renowned artist has decided to alter the show’s format as we move into the 21st century making this Art in the Metroplex the finale.

CALL TO ARTISTS: Open call to all artists in the DFW Metroplex and surrounding areas – Tarrant, Dallas, Collin, Cooke, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufmann, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell and Wise. Open to artists over the age of 18, all disciplines with no theme. All medias including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art. Art in the Metroplex Grand Finale will occur in our premier, 3000 square foot, Front Gallery at The Arts Center. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person.

PRIZES:

·          Grand Prize Winner: Solo Show in our Main Gallery at Art7, a storefront gallery located on Crockett St. in Fort Worth’s bustling 7th Street area.

·          Runners Up: A group exhibition occurring simultaneously as the solo show in the Back section of the Art7 Gallery.
