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.

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.

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.

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.

Frida Kahlo – Without Boundaries entries due Oct. 20

fridokahlocall

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.
