A Smith Gallery: Alternative Processes

Alternative Processes
Deadline: July 23

A Smith Gallery
Johnson City, TX

Juror: Diana H. Bloomfield

Photography started as a chemical experiment. However, the acknowledged inventor of the process, Thomas Wedgwood, was the son and grandson of famous English potters. His entire life he was surrounded by artists, creators. Wedgwoods pals were William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. So, it is not unusual or unexpected that creative folks have taken his work and run with it. For many photographers it’s about the camera, for others it’s about what can be birthed once it leaves the thing and for others it is the possibility of making images that are miraculous orphans.

Any unique handmade prints are eligible. Eligible prints include but are not limited to cyanotype, lumens, Van Dyke, salt, chemigram, tintype, bromoil, gum bichromate, platinum/palladium, photogravure, albumen, liquid emulsion, ziatype, image transfers, kallitypes, lith prints, hand colored silver gelatin prints, encaustic and mordoncage. Unique prints made from digital negatives are eligible. The camera used for capture is immaterial. Creativity is encouraged.

Residency 108

Residency 108
Deadline: July 27

New York

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Frequent visitors include coyotes, deer and wild turkeys. The barn is home to chickens, sheep, horses, goats, cats, a cow and a pig. There is also a private residence on the property, which is not available for use by residents.

The residency is located in a remote area; the closest village is a 7-minute drive or 25-minute bike ride. There is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts: SPECTRUM/Exploring Gender Identification

SPECTRUM/Exploring Gender Identification
Deadline: July 29

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts
North Adams, MA

Jurors: Arthur De Bow, Curator MCLA Gallery 51; Erika Wall, Owner Gallery 6/67, Santa Ana, CA; Kieran Swann Arnolfini Programme Manager, Bristol, UK

This juried exhibition brings to the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) Gallery 51 a reflection and conversation on the gender continuum—exploring cultural and social issues of gender roles, norms and identification.

Because we all deal with issues of gender and sexuality, we hope to show work from a variety of perspectives across and beyond the spectrum. With work that examines masculinity, femininity and gender identifications between and outside of this binary. Numerous artists have used their work to examine, question, confront and criticize the relationships between gender and society.

The construction of gender roles informs a broad and fluid range of identities, such as heterosexuality, lesbianism, homosexuality, transsexuality, intersexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, genderqueer, and being transgender or cisgender, among others, thus becoming an act of freedom, diversity and individual expression. An individual’s identity is comprised of a multitude of intersecting factors, including gender, race, ethnicity, ability, class and orientation. Many people now prefer to use the plural word “identities” emphasizing multiplicity, fluidity and change throughout one’s life. This exhibition turns to the ability of artists to confront the status quo and challenge cultural standards, providing a framework for discussion and change through visual arts.

Northern Illinois University Art Museum: Transparent Factors

Transparent Factors
Deadline: July 31

Northern Illinois University Art Museum
DeKalb, IL

This exhibition will examine the spectrum of interpretation of the word “transparency”; from the literal to the figurative. Artists who explore both the visual phenomenon of transparency and the concept of “transparency” in content, be that process, funding, idea or material.

Artwork may also deal with the opposite of transparency and examine opacity and/or translucency as a means of more keenly exploring the nature of transparency. Glass, water and veils as well as public meetings and inclusivity all play a role here. The exhibition will be complemented by a display and symposium of Asian reverse glass works which take full advantage of the “magic” of transparency.

John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship Award

John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship Award
Deadline: September 5

Griffin Museum of Photography
Winchester, MA

Jurors: Crista Dix, Aline Smithson, Laura Moya, Frazier King

The John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship seeks to recognize, encourage and reward photographers with the potential to create a body of work and sustain solo exhibitions. Awarded annually, the Scholarship provides recipients with a monetary award of $3,000, exhibition of their work at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and a volume from John’s personal library of photography books. The Scholarship seeks to provide a watershed moment in the professional lives of emerging photographers, providing them with the support and encouragement necessary to develop, articulate and grow their own vision for photography.

The scholarship is open to photographers who have produced individual works of photography and/or are in the process of producing bodies of work.

We are looking for candidates who are serious about photography, whose potential is emerging and whose photography will benefit from this scholarship. Candidates should not be currently enrolled in a photography degree program. There is no age limit. There are no residency requirements.

Photographers without gallery representation who have not exhibited solo in a gallery/museum setting are eligible (coffee shop, community gallery, library etc. are eligible exhibition settings).

This scholarship is not for well-established photographers. Well-established photographers are individuals in mid-photography-careers and are seen by the public and peers as distinguished in the field of photography and have many accomplishments as a photographer. Please note again that an artist who has had SOLO exhibitions in established galleries/museums or has gallery representation will be considered too accomplished to receive this scholarship.

Revolve Gallery: Picturing Purity

Picturing Purity
Deadline: August 10

Revolve Gallery
Asheville, NC

Picturing Purity is a photography/new media exhibition to be installed at Revolve Project Space in Asheville, North Carolina, as part of a four-day art and science event, photo+sphere. This event features nationally known speakers, panelists, exhibitions, films, and performances, and is intended to bring attention to how we see our environment and the role humans play in determining the future of our planet.The goal of Picturing Purity is to engage in a nuanced conversation about environmentalism. From "virgin forests" to "untouched landscapes," the language of environmentalism is rooted in the sort of outdated thinking that commodifies women's virginity and places men in a position to either protect it (as a father/ conservator) or seek it (as a partner/nature lover). 
Can we move away from this narrow lexicon and grant ourselves new ways to imagine our relationship with the natural world? How might we start to articulate a relationship with the natural world that is one of complexity, co-dependency, and messiness? 

The curator seeks images that call attention to purity myths in our culture or demonstrate new ways of visualizing our relationship to our planet.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship
Deadline: September 17

Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. Guggenheim Fellowships are grants to selected individuals made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months. Since the purpose of the Guggenheim Fellowship program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, grants are made freely. No special conditions attach to them, and Fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary to their work. The United States Internal Revenue Service, however, does require the Foundation to ask for reports from its Fellows at the end of their Fellowship terms.

The Foundation receives approximately 3,000 applications each year. Although no one who applies is guaranteed success in the competition, there is no prescreening: all applications are reviewed. Approximately 175 Fellowships are awarded each year.

During the rigorous selection process, applicants will first be pooled with others working in the same field, and examined by experts in that field: the work of artists will be reviewed by artists, that of scientists by scientists, that of historians by historians, and so on. The Foundation has a network of several hundred advisers, who either meet at the Foundation offices to look at applicants’ work, or receive application materials to read offsite. These advisers, all of whom are themselves former Guggenheim Fellows, then submit reports critiquing and ranking the applications in their respective fields. Their recommendations are then forwarded to and weighed by a Committee of Selection, which then determines the number of awards to be made in each area. Occasionally, no application in a given area is considered strong enough to merit a Fellowship.

The Committee of Selection then forwards its recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The successful candidates in the United States and Canada competition are announced in early April.

The Foundation understands advanced professionals to be those who as writers, scholars, or scientists have a significant record of publication, or as artists, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, composers, or the like, have a significant record of exhibition or performance of their work.

The Foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the Foundation will provide Fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

The amounts of grants vary, and the Foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project. Working with a fixed annual budget, the Foundation strives to allocate its funds as equitably as possible, taking into consideration the Fellows’ other resources and the purpose and scope of their plans. Members of the teaching profession receiving sabbatical leave on full or part salary are eligible for appointment, as are those holding other fellowships and appointments at research centers.

The Foundation only supports individuals. It does not make grants to institutions or organizations.

Rhythm & Rush
Deadline: July 15

Ground Floor Gallery
Nashville, TN

Juror: Catherine Haggarty

Rhythm and Rush seeks to find work that provokes movement, atmosphere, and speed in both conceptual and formal ways within all media. The ways in which the picture frame is questioned, expanded or uniquely considered while being provocative, contemporary and personal are elements of this show concept. The juror, Catherine Haggarty is curious about the ways in which the speed of image consumption, and image promotion affects artists today – or the ways in which it does not affect them. Rhythm and Rush is an open consideration to the lens in which we all are living and working in. Slow, fast, static, haptic, and rhythmic can be presented in many ways – we are seeking works that touch on these ideas in very specific, sensitive and strong ways.

Fees: $35 for up to 3 images, $50 for 4-6 images, $70 for 7-9 images.

The Studios at MASS MoCA Residency for Artists & Writers

Call for Artists & Writers
Deadline: July 9

The Studios at MASS MoCA
North Adams, MA

Application for Sessions from October 10th, 2018 – April 2nd, 2019

MASS MoCA invites artists and writers to apply for residencies from 1 week to 8 weeks in length.

Residents (10 per session) will receive:

  • A private studio in attractive space on MASS MoCA’s re-purposed mill campus, with generous natural light, 24-hour studio access, plywood floors, a work table and chair in each studio, and shared slop sinks and bathrooms. (Certain applicants, depending on their projects, will be invited to share a communal studio space at Makers’ Mill — the printmaking and fiber arts studio — located a few blocks from the studios on the MASS MoCA campus, instead of a private studio.)
  • Housing across the street from the museum, in newly renovated apartments (private bedroom/Queen bed + shared kitchen and bath). These are lovely apartments, but note that it’s communal living (4 people to an apartment) in an active downtown location — sensitive sleepers be advised.
  • One communal meal per day, in the company of other artists-in-residence.
  • MASS MoCA member benefits for the duration of the residency, including free access to the museum’s galleries and discounts on performing arts events and museum store purchases.
  • Free access to Makers’ Mill, a printmaking and fiber arts makerspace on Main Street in North Adams (a short walk from the museum), offering shared use of relief press, etching press, silkscreen and book arts equipment, as well as looms, sewing machines, small tools and work tables.
  • Optional one-on-one artist-focused financial and business coaching through the staff of MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists program (www.assetsforartists.org), helping artists and writers in all disciplines strengthen the business side of their artistic practice.

Eligibility: We welcome applications from artists in all career stages, income levels, and disciplines (painters, writers, fiber artists, printmakers, performers, designers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.) whose practice allows them to work quietly (no power tools in the private studios, and no music out loud – headphones only). Groups/collectives may apply to work on joint projects. The studios have light-duty ventilation, so an art practice generating strong fumes cannot be accommodated.

Fees: $650 per week

PhotoPlace Gallery: Still Life: Elevating the Mundane

Still Life: Elevating the Mundane
Deadline: July 9

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

Juror: Kimberly Witham

Still life images pepper our lives. Eyes linger on objects that catch the light, or on curved lines that flow against a harder edge or a blank wall. Within stillness, texture, color, subject, light, and shadow all intertwine to tell a story. Something happened here. Something was left.

Whether found or created, still life images may become quiet and powerful forms of personal expression. A compelling photographic still life will make us pause to look at what might have been considered mundane. For this exhibition, we seek images that represent subjects in new and interesting ways, and that perhaps push the limits of what we might consider “still life.”

Fees: $35 for up to 5 images, $6 for each additional image.

Re/member/construct refers to the quality of a photograph to simultaneously stop time and infuse form, construct memory, and fuel nostalgia.

Artists selected for the exhibition will be included in Filter Photo’s inaugural publication, Re/member/construct, and will receive a complimentary copy of the publication.

LIES
Deadline: July 6

Colorado Photographic Arts Center
Denver, CO

Juror: Richard McCabe, Curator, Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Photography has a complex relationship to truth that leads all the way back to the invention of the medium. Our current culture adds to the immediacy of trickery, with claims of fake news and polarizing viewpoints, even without imagery to back it up - and what would an image prove anyway? From spirit photography to digital manipulation, photography has had to battle with an image that includes both reality and deception. For this juried exhibit, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center is inviting you to explore themes related to lies and the effect that misinformation has on our culture. Maybe by exploring work that talks about the prevalence of lies, we will find important truth about ourselves.

Fees: Members-$30 for up to 3 images, $4 each additional image, Non-members, $35 for up to 3 images, $5 each additional image.

Deadline: June 30

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Richmond, VA

Juror: Kiberli Gant, McKinnon Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Chrysler Museum

1708 Gallery invites national and international artists working in all media and disciplines to submit proposals for the 11th annual InLight Richmond. Proposals for InLight 2018 should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept.

InLight 2018 will take place on Friday, November 16th, 2018 from 7PM to Midnight AND on Saturday, November 17th, 2018, from 7pm to 10PM, at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. InLight is a public exhibition of contemporary light-based artworks—videos and projections, multi-media and interactive projects, sculptures, installations, performances.

Occurring during 1708 Gallery’s 40th Anniversary Year, InLight 2018 will focus on ideas of Community. Recent editorials have described two Richmonds. “RVA” encompasses revitalization, creativity and growth. “Richmond” is divided, challenged, and struggling. Artists are invited to consider this dynamic and to imagine an ideal community—ONE Richmond. While existing work will be considered, 1708 Gallery encourages artists to propose projects that consider this theme.

Potential sites for installations and performances include pathways, façades and other walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, and more. In addition, a limited number of interior sites MAY be available. Artists may propose a specific site for both pre-existing and site-responsive works. Please indicate if your work is site-specific on your entry form. 1708 Gallery reserves the right to make final site assignments.

Selection Criteria:
• 
How the project relates to the theme of light
• How the project relates to the site and to ideas of Community
• The feasibility of the project

The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusions are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer – and what is being left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.
