Kresge Gallery: Lie, Cheat, Steal: Contemporary Art and Ethics

Lie, Cheat, Steal: Contemporary Art and Ethics
Deadline: September 30

Kresge Gallery, Lyon College
Batesville, AR

The Kresge Gallery at Lyon College invites submissions of visual artwork for an exhibition exploring the intersection of Art and Ethics. In Contemporary Art appropriation has become a common practice; many artists weave falsehoods and half-truths into their work; and some art-makers walk a fine line between collaboration and exploitation. Daily life in general can also be filled with moral dilemmas and ethical gray-areas. This exhibition welcomes entries from artists in any media whose work addresses, explores, critiques, or perhaps even employs some form of lying, cheating, or stealing (broadly defined).

“Lie, Cheat, Steal” will be hosted by the Kresge Gallery, an art exhibition space and center for academic and artistic discourse in the Lyon College community. Critical inquiry is an integral part of our mission, and honor and integrity are core values at Lyon. But what does this look like for a 21st century artist? Contemporary artists borrow images and ideas, create fictions, exaggerate facts, and manipulate viewers’ emotions. How far is too far? The “Lie, Cheat, Steal” exhibition seeks to frame issues of honesty and integrity in ways that may be serious, humorous, even provocative.

Works will be selected by members of the Lyon College chapter of Kappa Pi, with input from Ian Campbell, Assistant Professor of Art. Kappa Pi is an International Collegiate Honorary Society that promotes artistic talents and achievements for its members.

All media are welcome, however, we may not be able to accommodate pieces with very complicated or specific installation needs. Display requirements such as pedestals, shelves, projectors, etc. should be noted on the entry form. Works must arrive ready to hang: framed or otherwise professionally presented with suitable hanging hardware.

Praxis Gallery

Juror: Layne Kennedy

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Spanning two centuries, night photography has captured the collective imagination of the masses. From the infamously long exposures required by early artists, to high speed color films and the advent of digital technology, the subject of the night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, factories, artificial structures and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form. All subjects (people, places and things), genres, capture types, color, black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Juror: Doug Beasley, SHOTS publisher

A portrait sounds like a relatively straightforward thing — a picture of someone — but across time it has proven to be much more elusive. For any rule you might devise to define a portrait, there is always a bona fide portrait that defies that rule. At a certain point, portraiture seems to be less of a genre than a blurry constellation of suggested guidelines, or even just something you have to see to recognize. That's when it's time to stop theorizing and start looking for the best in contemporary portraiture.

A Blade of Grass: Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art
Deadline: October 16

A Blade of Grass
New York, NY

We believe in the power of socially engaged artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more just, equitable, sustainable, joyful, and compassionate future. We know this means that artists must take time and care to develop relationships built on mutual trust, as well as work with diverse non-arts partners and communities. We understand there are no ready-made roadmaps or guaranteed outcomes for this type of work, and are committed to learning how artists navigate these processes and relationships.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work. This is hard and time-consuming organizational, intellectual, and emotional work.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Additionally, field research replaces grant reporting written by the artist, and is grounded in the goals and areas of inquiry defined by the artist and the perspective of project participants.

Selected Fellows will receive:

  • $20,000 in minimally restricted support

  • Comprehensive written Field Research Reports that utilize action research methodology

  • Expenses Paid 2-day Orientation Retreat in NYC to engage a cohort of peer artists and ABOG staff and board (a requirement for the fellowship)

  • Ongoing invitations to networking events for all ABOG Fellows and Alumni twice annually (attendance voluntary)

  • Ongoing promotion of fellow’s projects through ABOG social media networks and website

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming. However, these content collaborations are not an obligation of the fellowship, and will be based on mutual interest under a separate contract.

New for 2020: A Blade of Grass awards 8 Fellowships for Socially Engaged Art each year. Beginning in 2020, two of these eight will be granted to a Los Angeles-based artist (any age) and a New York City-based artist of color under the age of 30.

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire: Midwest Queeritivities

Midwest Queeritivities
Deadline: September 15

Foster Gallery, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
Eau Claire, WI

The American Midwest is perhaps most known for its heritage of agricultural and industrial prowess, yet often unmentioned are the plethora of progressive, diverse cultures and their inextricable impact on the overarching identity of the region. "Midwest Queeritivities" is an exhibit consisting of multimedia art and literary works that illuminate queer identities and their relationships to other cultures in the Midwest with emphasis on the following questions:

+ The Midwest has often been reduced by long-established stereotypes and the cultural homogenization of its people, landscapes, and traditions; how are these notions being challenged and reshaped in contemporary art?

+ Conversely, how have regionally specific elements both cultural and otherwise, e.g., religious affiliations, gender expectations, rural/urban contrasts, political dispositions, climates, and
geographies impacted the local LGBTQ+ identities?

+ How are artists reimagining social, institutional, and historical spaces to be more inclusive and representative of the Midwest's increasingly dynamic peoples?

APPLICATION PROCESS
Each applicant may submit images of up to five artworks in a single PDF file no larger than 3MB; images of three-dimensional artwork must include one full view and one detail view. Under each image provide the title of the work, the media, the dimensions, and the year the artwork was created. Text/Literary submissions must be in PDF format. If the work is spoken or performative, include a link or an audio file up to 15MB. Audio files must include transcripts. Title the PDF using the following format: "YourLastName_FirstInitial," for example, "Smith_J." The final component of the PDF submission must include a text page with the artist's name, address, email, telephone number, and an artist's statement no longer than 200 words.

SUBMISSIONS
Please email submissions to midwestqueeritivities@uwec.edu All entries must be submitted by September 15, 2019.

Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) began as the Lubbock Regional Arts Center (LRAC) in 1997.

A capital campaign was launched, and the facility was enlarged and renovated between 2003 and 2005. LRAC was renamed the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts in honor of our co-founder in 2004. Today, LHUCA is recognized as a driving force behind the downtown revitalization plan using the arts to stimulate economic development. Creating this visual and performing arts center in the heart of the future Lubbock Cultural District helped foster a thriving arts community.

John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship

John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship
Deadline: September 5

Griffin Museum of Photography
Winchester, MA

Jurors: Mia Daglish, Blue Mitchell, Jan Potts and Elizabeth Cordon, Kristen Rian

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. There is no application fee.

Photographers without gallery representation who have not exhibited solo in a commercial gallery, academic gallery (except for thesis shows), galleries in organizations like the Griffin Museum, Houston Center for Photography, Center for Fine Art Photography etc. or a museum setting or have not received significant (over $3000) grant funding are eligible (coffee shop, community gallery, library, academic thesis exhibitions, etc. are eligible exhibition settings). Past awardees of the Chervinsky Scholarship, paid employees of the Griffin Museum or their immediate families, Griffin Museum board members and jurors’ immediate families and those immediate families of Griffin board members or jurors’ paid employees are not eligible.

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 commercial galleries, academic galleries (except for thesis shows), photography nonprofit gallery spaces like the Griffin Museum, Houston Center for Photography, Center for Fine Art Photography etc. or a museum gallery or has gallery representation or received significant grant funding (over $3000) will be considered too accomplished to receive this scholarship.

San Francisco Center for the Book: (retro)(intro)spection

(retro)(intro)spection
Deadline: September 1

San Francisco Center for the Book
San Francisco, CA

Jurors:
Alisa Golden, author of Making Handmade Books
Lisa Beth Robinson, Somnambulist Tango Press
Steve Woodall, Achenbach Collections Specialist, Legion of Honor Museum

What’s in a word? What about a prefix?  Retro- can be used to describe furniture, artifacts, graphic design, fashion, and interiors. Retroactive (taking effect from a date in the past), retrocede (to go back), retrocognition (backward knowing) and retrograde (moving backwards) are words that lead us to the past where might learn something about where we are in the here-and-now.

The etymology of intro- encourages artists to look within, gain and gather perspective. What about the suffix -spection? It means to look, see or observe, having evolved from the Latin Specere (to look at) and the Proto-Indo-European language root spek (to observe).

Artists are frequently inspired by the past and aim to make work which speaks to future audiences, subsequent generations. Tandem processes of introspective questioning and retrospective storytelling often come together in the artist book format—giving reader and creator the opportunity for personal reflection.

Artists books tell us stories by using narrative, structure, materials. Each of these aspects help the artist to communicate a perspective, one that is singularly unique to themselves and the work. (retro)(intro)spection seeks to explore the crossroads where artists books and artistic process intersect. When do our amorphous ideas become real, at what point? What is the role of introspection and one’s personal past when applied to artists books? In the act of looking back as well as in, the curators hope that artists will be inspired by their body of work, regarding the path or discovering the throughline that brings them to the present, creating work to speak not only to future audiences, but also to subsequent generations.

Media: This exhibit is open to handmade book and paper arts related works created either in edition or as a one-of-a-kind work. Artists’ books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, installations, zines, and broadsides are all encouraged.

Fees: $20 for up to 8 images

Praxis Gallery: The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things
Deadline: August 31

Praxis Gallery
Minneapolis, MN

Juror: Ross Anderson

The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation… an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

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