GREAT CAUSE AND WONDERFUL ARTIST

John Egeland

Medium: Acrylic on canvas                                Size: 16″ x 20″

Price: $2,000

The Guild is proud to assist John Egeland, one of its members, in a project we all feel is very worthy. John is a strong advocate of the homeless population in the Dallas area and donates much of his time to the cause. In addition, as part of our fall show Creme de la Creme, John is donating all profits from the sale of his beautiful painting, “Forsaken”, to the Dallas Life Foundation.

The story of Dallas LIFE starts with a man named Reverend Robert J. Key, one of the founders of the Union Gospel Mission in 1949. With Dallas’ homeless population growing in the post war years, Reverend Key left UGM to begin establishing the Dallas Rescue Mission. It was this endeavor that would become Dallas LIFE, now the largest homeless shelter in North Texas.
Dallas Rescue Mission opened its doors in 1954 in a small storefront location on Commerce Street. There, Rev. Key would minister to the men who came to him nightly for shelter and a hot meal. Rev. Key and his volunteers kept the shelter open every night for the next 25 years.

Please keep in mind that 3.5 million people in the US will be homeless this year. One third of those will suffer from chronic mental illness and 1.4 million will be children. These are staggering numbers that we should all want to see decrease rapidly. They need our help and we should all do our part to end the struggle for at least some of these.

Will you please help John, and more importantly the homeless community, by purchasing this beautiful work of art.

You can go visit our Creme de la Creme show and see this wonderful piece of art at the Frisco Discovery Center during normal business hours.

Deadline: 11/1/16

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) – Thompson Library Sculpture The Central Arkansas Library System is seeking to commission a qualified artist to create a permanent outdoor artwork for the Thompson Library located at 38 Rahling Circle, Little Rock, AR


 

The Galvez Streetscape, New Orleans, LA

Budget: $15,000
Deadline: 11/4/16

The Arts Council New Orleans, through the City of New Orleans Percent for Art Program, seeks to integrate impactful art into the city’s public space by illuminating the culturally artistic traditions inherent to our community. We believe that public art, serving in the best interest of public good, can be profoundly uplifting, help to build an appreciation for public space, and strengthen the creative, political, intellectual, and cultural tendencies that define New Orleans communities.


 

 

 

New Orleans Fire Department Murals, LA

Budget: $15,000
Deadline: 11/4/16

The Arts Council New Orleans’ Place + Civic Design Department is requesting mural proposals to replace public art installations at two New Orleans Fire Department locations. The department, through the City of New Orleans’ Percent for Art Program, and in partnership with the New Orleans Fire Department, will decommission existing public art banner installations and replace them with contemporary murals at the 801 Girod Street Flying Squad and Basin Street stations. The call is open to experienced artists, artist teams, or community groups working with muralists. Proposals may be submitted for both sites; however, only one artist or artist group will be selected for each site. While the installation should connect the fire department to the larger New Orleans community, themes should reflect broader sentiments that transcend specific references to fire, safety, and the departments’ history. Example sentiments include, but are not limited to: • A deep connection to, and congruence with, the surrounding neighborhood; • Specific historical references from the surrounding community; • Celebration of contemporary art’s transformative energy; • Collective empowerment and representation through creative expression in urban spaces; • Excitement and interest for the community’s current growth and energy; • Celebration of the neighborhood’s identity, and rich heritage.

Call for Art

TVAA Downtown Gallery

Frida Kahlo – Without Boundaries

November  1 – 30, 2016

Reception Nov. 6, 2-4pm

Frida Kahlo continues to be a popular cult figure, more than sixty years after her death. Kahlo overcame much physical suffering as a young woman, and later  struggled personally and artistically to find her way as an artist in a male-dominated culture.

Research into her life reveals her strong interest in politics, art, and animals, her rejection of society’s values, and her magnetic bond to her husband, artist Diego Rivera.

Those wishing to explore this fascinating and surprising artist will find a wealth of information on the Internet. Images of her paintings are also available to those interested in seeing her extraordinarily personal and autobiographical creations.

For this show we are requesting art about, influenced by, or in the style of Frida Kahlo. All media welcomed. Artists are invited to submit up to three entries (jpgs at 72 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side) to Curator Mary Ann Turner by October 20th at macavari@netscape.com. Prospectus is available on the TVAA website: www.tvaa.org.

Our Juror:

WALT DAVIS SWS AWS

http://waltdavisart.com/

Walt Davis, signature member and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society, began painting in watercolor over thirty years ago.  He has studied with such notable artists as Faith Helen Foust, Bud Biggs, Doug Walton, Louise Cadillac, Carole Barnes, Frank Webb, Mark Mehaffey, Richard Stephens, and bird artist John P. O’Neil.

Davis has taught watercolor, figure drawing, and plein air sketching at Eastfield Community College, Amarillo College, Panhandle Art Center, San Angelo Museum of Art, and in his studio in Commerce.  He has conducted demonstrations and workshops in Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, San Angelo and nine other Texas cities.

His work is carried by the Davis and Blevins Gallery in St. Jo, Texas, and his paintings hang in private collections in Washington State, Montana, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, and cities throughout Texas.

His painting, Katy-did, Katy-didn’t, won the Margery Soroka Memorial Award in the 2013 American Watercolor Society competition in New York and was included in the Society’s traveling show.  Two other insect portraits won awards in 2014; one in the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies in Phoenix, Arizona, and the other in the Southwestern Watercolor Society show in Dallas.  With the acceptance of the painting Make My Day (see above) in the 2015 annual exhibition of the American Watercolor Society, Davis became a signature member of that prestigious organization.

December 5, 2015 – January 15, 2016
Reception: December 12, 2015 5:30pm-8:00pm
Submission Deadline for Artwork: Nov. 17th, 5:00pm
Download App Here

This popular annual exhibition honors The Virgen de Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico. Since 1992, Jose Vargas, the curator of the exhibition, has invited talented and diverse artists every year to create expressive and imaginative works of art that pay tribute to the “dark skinned Madonna.” The show has become a tradition in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and has been praised by the public for its original renditions of the iconic religious and cultural symbol. Any person visiting this exhibition, regardless of their faith or religion, can enjoy the colorful array of works of art portraying devotional and warm-hearted artistic expressions by various individuals.

This year Jose Vargas began a partnership with Samuel A. Garcia, a gallery curator and instructor from the Ysleta Independent School District in El Paso, Texas. The first collaborative project of the two curators involves an art exchange program that will allow art instructors form the border town to exhibit their works of art in Dallas. The program will also give Dallas Artists an opportunity to display their works in a similar, long-lived Virgen de Guadalupe exhibition in El Paso. The organizers of the exhibitions in Dallas and El Paso foresee that this will be the first of many future artistic collaborations.

About the Curator
Jose Vargas has curated this exhibition since 1992. Mr. Vargas is an experienced visual artist and exhibition curator who has collaborated with the Oak Cliff Cultural Center and other City of Dallas cultural centers on numerous occasions, offering curatorial, art administration, and art logistic services.
