On June 29th from 6:30 – 8pm CAC will be hosting its fifthunseenamerica show featuring the work of eight very talented 3rd 4th and 5th graders from nearby Bayles Elementary and we hope you will join us to view their work and welcome them to CAC! A culminating exhibit opened at the students’ school last month, and after it shows at CAC will travel throughout the community to such venues as galleries, libraries and businesses impacting hundreds of people who view the exhibition.
Unseenamerica is an 8-week curriculum-based program, taught by a professional photographer, teaches digital photography at nearby Bayles Elementary, which is CAC’s namesake school.  Bayles began as a one-room school house in 1981 near what is now Buckner International.  CAC was built during the WPA in 1935 and Bayles operated here until the mid-50s. The current DISD Bayles Elementary School opened in 1956 about a mile from CAC where it is currently. Significantly, Bayles is the oldest school operating under the same name in Dallas County.
Modeled on a program that originated in New York under Bread and
 Roses, the cultural arm of SEIU Local 1199, the largest labor union in the country, unseenamericawas originally designed to serve low-wage workers, day labors, homeless citizens and others often ignored in our society. When CAC brought the program to Dallas in 2008 we were the first to adapt the program for children.
 
Unseenamerica is far from a fun enrichment program for disadvantaged kids. It is designed to instill a stronger sense of self and community through artistic practice. Unseenamerica does not simply teach photography skills, but also creates community, enables the practice of democracy and promotes social justice.

2017 Texas Biennial call for art – deadline May 31

Basic RGB

The Texas Biennial is an independent survey of contemporary art in Texas, founded to provide an exhibition opportunity open to all artists living and working in the state. The sixth edition of the Biennial will take place in the fall of 2017, with a series of exhibitions focused on relevant conversations around the state, and parallel programming at venues across the state.

The Texas Biennial has worked with many different curators and taken many approaches to selecting artists from the open call. This iteration will be led by Mexico City-based, independent curator Leslie Moody Castro as the TX★17 Curator and Artistic Director. Moody Castro will make individual selections from works entered. For the first time in the Biennial’s history, all artists selected from the Open Call will be awarded a stipend.

The Texas Biennial is open to all artists living and working in Texas. Artists attending Texas-based residency programs are eligible to apply, as long as the work was completed during the time spent in Texas. Artists living and working within 10 miles of a Texas border are also eligible to apply (Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Mexico).

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.

FIGHT OR FLIGHT  http://thepaintingcenter.org/exhibitions/juried-exhibition-fight-or-flight

Exhibition Dates: June 20 – July 15, 2017

Deadline for Submission: May 5, 2017

Notification Date: May 15, 2017

Artwork Shipping Dates: June 13 – June 17, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 22, 6 – 8 pm

Application Process: Slide Room: thepaintingcenter.slideroom.com/

Application Fee: $40 for 3 to 5 images

Size Limitation: Artwork that exceeds 36″ in any dimension will not 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.
