Philip Guston said: “Painting is a kind of war between the moment and the pull of memory.” All artists integrate their life experiences into their artwork, integrating what they see and sense in the present with their memories of the past. That is what makes every artwork unique and valuable to the viewer. Anais Nin understood that the lens through which reality is perceived is shaped by the beholder, “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” In this exhibition, show us yourself by sharing how memory and perception have shaped your art.

National Portrait Gallery: Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition

Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition
Deadline: September 3

National Portrait Gallery
Washington, DC

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery invites artists to submit one portrait in any media for consideration in the fifth triennial Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. This year, the focus is on broadening the definition of portraiture and highlighting the genre’s relevance in contemporary art. Artworks may originate from direct encounters between the artist and the sitter, but they may also be representative of indirect encounters. For example, judges will consider portraits that employ existing imagery or archival research as a means of responding to history. Artists are encouraged to think about portraiture’s potential to engage with the social and political landscape of our time.

All finalists’ works will form a major exhibition that will be on view at the Portrait Gallery from November 2019 through September 2020, and there are plans for a subsequent national tour. The competition is named for Virginia Outwin Boochever (1920–2005), a former Portrait Gallery volunteer whose generous gift endowed the program.

The 2019 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition is open to artists who are at least 18 years old (by September 3rd, 2018) and who are living and working in the United States or its territories. Each artist may enter one work. Works must be new; any works completed before January 1, 2016, will be disqualified.
