About: The Djerassi Resident Artists Program has provided over 2,000 artist residencies, and currently serves approximately 90 artists each year, since 1979 – all free of charge. It is the largest artist residency program in the Western United States and considered among the best in the country. Each year dozens of artists from across the United States, and around the world, travel to the open hillsides and deep redwood forests of SMIP Ranch to take inspiration from the beautiful surroundings and seek refuge from the distractions of the world to concentrate on their creative projects. While in residence, the artists work in peaceful isolation within a supportive community of other artists and Program staff. They thrive on the intellectual stimulation and the collegial interaction in this intimate artist community.

From their call:  Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice.

Artists of any age from any country may apply. We accept solo artists as well as collaborating teams of up to three people. We are particularly interested in applicants whose practice involves a defined engagement with landscape, ecology, and or projects that employ historical or first-hand research of the 108 site. Please have your statement reflect this intention.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one for the month of October and one for the month of 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.

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.

Providence Center for Photographic Arts (RI), International Call for Submissions: Unseen, Photography Beyond the Visible

Providence Center for Photographic Arts (RI), International Call for Submissions: Unseen, Photography Beyond the Visible

Deadline: March 17th, 2017

From their call: Non-visible wavelength photography is magical, mysterious, dramatic, and challenging. Images can appear dreamlike, mystical, and surreal — at once both familiar and foreign. Masters of photography including Minor White and WeeGee found expression with the expanded range of infrared spectrum. Simon Marsden used infrared to amplify his affinity with the macabre and haunted. Rock bands including Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and U2 presented a new psychedelic vision with infrared images on their album covers. More recently Richard Mosse’s photography captures the beauty and tragedy in war and destruction. Infrared photography transports the viewer into the world of unseen wavelengths of energy, beyond the visible.

Providence Center for Photographic Arts presents Unseen: Photography Beyond the Visible a juried exhibit of works by the artists who have found creative expression within non-visible wavelengths. Artists who utilize infrared, IR filters, false color, ultraviolet, multi-spectral, and thermographic technology — in digital, film, and post-processes — are invited to participate.

While Unseen is an exhibit limited to non-visible spectrum images, the evaluation of images by the jurors centers on artistic vision. We want to introduce our audience to another means of creative expression where technique is secondary in making selections. Unseen embraces photo-media artists, experimenters, and those who dare to stretch artistic boundaries into a truly different kind of light.

Sweetwater Center for the Arts (PA), National Call for Ceramic Art: Thrown & Altered

sweetwater-logoSweetwater Center for the Arts (PA), National Call for Ceramic Art: Thrown & Altered

Deadline: March 12th, 2017

Since the 1950’s ceramic artists have been intentionally manipulating thrown work for reasons beyond the utility of adding a handle or pinching a spout. As mass production overwhelmed craft, the tradition of thrown functional pottery found new purpose in a conceptualized aesthetic approach to object making. Contemporary ceramicists now work with a built in tradition that includes an acute awareness of their material’s essence and potential. Through the practice of throwing then altering their work, artists continue to develop both formal aspects of the tradition, as well as further investigate experimental possibilities. Entry fee.

Juror: Shoji Satake, born in Kyoto, Japan and raised in Anchorage, Alaska received his BA in Studio Art and BA in Government from The College of William and Mary in 1996. He received his MFA from Indiana University, Bloomington in 2004 and he currently resides in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Exhibition Dates: April 21st – May 27th, 2017

Open to all artists who reside in the continental United States.

About: Since 1975, Sweetwater has remained committed to serving the region through a multi-faceted, diverse agenda, including in-depth instructional programs in a variety of arts media and seeks to reach all economic strata and ages.  Sweetwater is located in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.

The Painting Center (NY), Call for Entries: Fight or Flight

The Painting Center (NY), Call for Entries: Fight or Flight

Deadline: May 5th, 2017

From their call: The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea (NYC), 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.

Early deadline to be considered for postcard and publicity: March 18th, 2017
Deadline for submissions: May 6th, 2017, 12am PST

Description: Artists are invited to submit work to Adobe Art Gallery in this broad theme encompassing the numerous ways repetition is embedded in our daily lives. Patterns emerge when documenting something over time. We’re interested in all forms of repetition from the linear forms of window blinds in a painting to a work with repetitive movements such as knitting or weaving. A work might not be visually repetitive but might include a quotidian working process. In Groundhog Day and Waiting for Godot, it’s the mundane moments between waking and sleeping that create the story and it is these spaces in between that we are highlighting.

Eligibility and Requirements: Open to all San Francisco Bay Area artists and all 2D and 3D media. Work must be hand delivered and picked up. No shipping. Open to the first fifty (50) entrants. One entry per artist. Work larger than 42 inches in height and width will be installed only as space permits at the discretion of the gallery director. Maximum weight is 50 lbs. Work must be original in nature, completed within the last two years and not previously shown at Adobe Art Gallery. Artwork must be framed, wired, pre-assembled and ready to hang/display. Plexiglass is highly preferred over glass. All works must remain for the duration of the show. Adobe Art Gallery will not accept artwork that is not mounted/framed professionally and ready to display. Adobe Art Gallery reserves the right of final selection of the work to be shown.
