Texas A & M University, Call for Artists: Student Services Building Art Competition

Texas A & M University, Call for Artists: Student Services Building Art Competition

Deadline: September 22nd, 2018

Texas A&M University announces a  competition to commission art pieces for two locations in its new Student Services building on the main campus.  The building is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by October 2019.

The commission competition is open to artists (or artist teams) to design and fabricate site-specific artworks for two locations.    The first is located on the first floor at the southwest corner of the building.  The second will be located on the third floor in the public reception area at the south end of the building.  The intent of the project is to have high impact art pieces that will energize the spaces.  A jury will determine which space is assigned to each winning artist.

The competition will be in two parts.  First, artists should submit resumes that reflect their ability to handle a project of this size plus images of previous public art projects they have completed.  A jury will narrow down the artists to two or three per location.  These artists will then create a concept proposal package to include drawings and/or maquettes for their art piece, an artist statement, materials list, fabrication timeline and budget breakdown.  After a jury narrows the submissions down to one artist per location, the second phase begins.  The winning artist(s) would then work with representatives from the university, the architects, and the construction firm to finalize the concept, and ultimately install it. Designs may not protrude from the recessed area more than 10 inches per safety and ADA codes.

Inspiration Themes:  Welcoming, Inclusive, Accessible, Community, Innovative

Award Phase One:  A $4,000 stipend will be given to each semi-finalist to develop their concepts, which includes travel to present their concepts to the jury.

Award Phase Two

  • $90,000 commission for Location #1
  • $150,000 commission for Location #2

Commission  awards are intended to cover all artist costs including, but not limited to, artist travel, fabrication, shipping, installation, engineering review (if necessary), etc.  The University will provide lighting, signage, personnel lift, ladders, or scaffolding if needed for installation.

Root Division (CA), Open Call for Artists: 140 Characters

Deadline TODAY: August 13th, 2018, 11:59pm PST

From their call: Root Division invites artists working in all media to submit work for 140 Characters. This group exhibition will explore the ways in which technology has altered modern language and communication.

The way we communicate is in transition as evolving technologies change our relationship to language and how we relate to one another. Social media, specifically, presents information that can range from enlightening to infuriating. Individuals can simultaneously choose to interact with a myriad of digital platforms to not only absorb information, but also speak their minds and produce content. These platforms are both limited and unrestricted, leaving room for misunderstanding, misinterpretation and misuse of text.

Artists who are working in text-based art, as well as other mediums, are encouraged to submit work exploring communication, consumption of information, impact of screen-culture, and various ways in which technology influences our modes of communication in daily life.

Curated by Margaret Timbrell & Lauren Etchells

The Southern California Consolidation Project for the California Air Resource Board, National Request for Qualifications for Public Art

The Southern California Consolidation Project for the California Air Resource Board, National Request for Qualifications for Public Art

Deadline: August 31st, 2018, 5:00pm PST

From their call: The Southern California Consolidation Project for the California Air Resource Board (CARB) is an approximately 400,000square-foot facility on a 19-acre campus located in Riverside, CA. The campus is one of the world’s largest and most advanced emissions testing and research facilities and consolidates five existing locations into one state-of-the-art facility. The campus, under the design-build team of ZGF, Hensel Phelps (HP), and Affiliated Engineers, Inc. (AEI), is the largest true zero net energy facility of its type and has the highest sustainability goals including Zero Net Energy, LEED Platinum, CALGreen Tier 2, and Zero Carbon. The Public Art Program is comprised of three open call commissions and is developed and managed by Dyson & Womack.

Opportunities: There are three unique public art commission opportunities open to artists through this open call Request for Qualifications (RFQ) / Request for Proposals (RFP) process. We encourage artists to take time looking at each opportunity and to apply to the commission that best suits their interests and work. Artists may apply to more than one commission opportunity but must apply separately to each. Artists are encouraged to submit Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) with artwork samples and letters of interest that are relevant to the specific commission to which they are applying, even when applying to multiple opportunities. We encourage artists to engage critically with the mission of CARB and the vision of the Art Plan to shape the future of public art in California and across our diverse communities.

The context of CARB is one of innovation, discovery, and stewardship of the environment. It is integral to the story of California and is a rich space for the creation of art. CARB was formed through a merger of the Bureau of Air Sanitation and the California Motor Vehicle Pollution Control Board, in 1967. It is charged with protecting the public from the harmful effects of air pollution and developing programs and actions to fight climate change.

Green Commission: $450,000
Entrance Foyer Auditorium Wall Commission: $150,000
Side Entrance Foyer Commission: $100,000

Artists and Artist Teams may apply to one or more of the three open call public art commission opportunities but must submit a unique SOQ to each. Artists and Artist Teams may only apply once to each specific commission opportunity.

We strongly encourage applicants to review all materials and supporting documents available prior to responding to this RFQ. SOQs submitted late, or through any other means than the application portal, will not be reviewed.

Deadline: August 26th, 2018

The Woody Gaddis Gallery, on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma, seeks entries for the juried photographic exhibition entitled Modern Tribalism. Modern tribes organize around common ideologies. Take religion, political parties, and sports teams for example. The term suggests an irrational loyalty to one group. While seeking to connect with people who think alike, it may disconnect people from humanity as a whole. We invite artists to submit work which embraces, fights against, or questions modern tribalism through photography. No entry fee.

Jurors: Professor of Photography Jesse L. Miller
Assistant Chair/Associate Professor Mark Zimmerman
Manager of Photo Labs Angela Cejda Mackey

Sustainable Arts Foundation, International Call for Applicants: Grants for Visual Artists & Writers with Families (Fall Awards)

sustainableSustainable Arts Foundation, International Call for Applicants: Grants for Visual Artists & Writers with Families (Fall Awards)

Deadline: August 31st, 2018, for Fall Awards

From their website: This year, we will make awards of $5,000 each to twenty artists and writers. Additionally, we will name ten award finalists. Our awards offer unrestricted cash, and recipients can use the funds as they see fit. Our program is an award program that rewards excellence in a creative field (note that this is different from a grant program, in which the application is focused on a proposal for new work). Our selection process is focused almost entirely on the strength of the submitted portfolio.

Eligibility: To be eligible, the applicant must have at least one child under the age of 18. Artists living in other countries eligible to apply. We have no geographic restrictions on our applicants. This applies both to U.S. citizens living abroad as well as to citizens of other countries. Artists and writers with at least one child and a strong portfolio of polished work are welcome to apply.

We are inspired by anyone who is making creative work while raising a family. Given the intense demand for these awards (we typically receive over 3,000 applications), and the fact that the awards are based on demonstrated excellence in your discipline, we don’t recommend that artists or writers who are beginning their creative careers apply to this program.

While we don’t require that applicants have published or exhibited their work, the rigor and critique involved in that process can certainly benefit the portfolio. Portfolios of writing or artwork created in a more personal vein for sharing with friends and family are not suitable.

Disciplines
Writers may apply in one of the following categories: Creative Nonfiction, Early and Middle Grade Fiction, Fiction, Graphic Novels, Long Form Journalism, Picture Books, Playwriting, Poetry, Young Adult Fiction. We do not accept portfolios of self-help books, motivational writing, travel and/or other kinds of guidebooks.

Visual artists may apply in one of the following categories: Book Arts, Drawing, Fiber Arts and Textiles, Illustration, Installation, Mixed Media, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture.

At this time we are not accepting applications in the performing arts, film/video/tv (including screenplays), music, jewelry, pottery, and other crafts.

Please see our FAQ for more information about disciplines.

During their live/work residency, artists partner with a local organization to explore a place-based thematic narrative—whether that means interpreting our spectacular mountain setting, rich local history, or risk-taking spirit; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community.

Stipend: BCA will reimburse artists up to $500 for travel, and artists are offered a weekly stipend of $200 to cover food, materials, and other expenses.

Artist expectations include: 1) mentoring a local artist-in-residence; 2) participating in monthly Second Saturdays; 3) facilitating a weekly class, lecture, or activity on campus; and 4) planning and hosting a final presentation or event produced in collaboration with a local partner.

The artist-in-residence program is a partnership between Breckenridge Creative Arts and the Saddle Rock Society.

Arts Benicia (CA), National Call for Artists, In the Fields: Botanical Lore

arts-benicia-logo-cmykArts Benicia (CA), National Call for Artists, In the Fields: Botanical Lore

Deadline: September 15th, 2018, 11:59pm MST

From their call: The history of art shows us that artists and plants are a natural pairing. Artists have been creating botanical lore for centuries, inspired by the forms, colors, myths, metaphors, science, and symbolism of plants. Artists working in all media are invited to share their botanical expressions and depictions.

Accepted artists will be invited to attend the member preview, and to talk about their work (optional), as well as to the public reception. Artists hand-delivering work will be provided with promotional postcards. Artists shipping their work will receive digital version of the postcard.

Juror: Artist and curator Jennifer Perlmutter balances the influences of nature and civilization in her work, combining environmental character with urban features in a complex layering to create a push-pull of color, figure and texture. Botanicals were her first subjects, used to explore watercolors and oils in the late 90s. She produced chinoiserie, artwork and deep, layered finishes on high-end furniture, featured in LA’s Pacific Design Center. Perlmutter ultimately found her niche in mixed media on wood and canvas, which is her predominant medium today. She opened a gallery in Lafayette, CA in 2014, exhibiting a diverse program of contemporary art. Perlmutter’s work has been widely commissioned, collected internationally, and shown in New York, Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Media and size restrictions: All media will be considered: painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, book art, video, sound art, and installation. Size limitations: wall work no larger than 36” in either dimension; sculptural work no taller than 6 feet, 30 pounds weight, or a 36” footprint.

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: Trees

Innovate_and_Investigate_folds-Crops_A_2011_03

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: Trees

Deadline: August 23rd, 2018, 11:59pm EST

From their call: For this exhibition we’re extending the challenge to you to photograph a tree, or thousands of trees, in your own unique vision. Do you see the joy of green and vigorous trees providing summer shade, a lonely oak or maple bare of leaves and enduring a harsh northern winter, or the tragedy (or profit) in the harvest of trees for wood products or paper? Here in Vermont we enjoy an annual autumn spectacular, the changing of the landscape from green to vivid shades of yellow, red, and orange. How do the trees in your part of the world change through the seasons and through their life spans? 

As photographers we look at trees, either in number or individually. They’re often an essential part of a photograph, either as objects of beauty when they’re the subject of an image, or as useful “props” for framing a scene. They’re convenient “models” for the camera, since they can be found in most environments on land – even in our biggest cities.

Juror: Michael Pannier

Lucid Art Foundation (CA), Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence 2019

Lucid Art Foundation (CA), Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence 2019

Deadline: November 19th, 2018

The Lucid Art Foundation encourages exploration of nonrepresentational art through multimedia, conceptual, ecological, and interdisciplinary approaches. During the three-week residency, artists will have the opportunity to explore the practice of lucid art, with special emphasis on the integration of art, process, and inner awareness. Through this practice, a deeper foundation is created that fosters individual artistic growth and development, as well as the understanding of the artist’s role in society.

The goal of the Lucid Art Residency Program is to provide artists from Canada and the United States with a serene, retreat-like natural environment for creative exploration and inquiry into arts and consciousness. Eligible artists must have an MFA or equivalent in independent studio work. Artists working in the visual arts, video/new media, music composition, and choreography will be considered.

The residency provides a space to live in (the former studio of the late writer Jacqueline Johnson) and a 650-square-foot art studio called “the Ark.” The Ark was built in 1960 and was a former studio of painter Gordon Onslow Ford and mixed media artist Fariba Bogzaran. The large studio pictured above has a wood burning fireplace, restroom, sink, high ceilings with upper loft, wood walls, skylights, and a private deck off the sliding glass patio doors. The cottage has WiFi, a bedroom, a living room, 2 bathrooms, wood burning stove, continuous wooden deck, and a full kitchen stocked with necessary cooking utensils. Parking and laundry facilities are on-site. There is also a print shop with a Sturges press available for use by artists who are experienced printmakers. Only water based mediums may be used on the press.

During the residency, artists have the opportunity to meet and dialogue with a Lucid Art professional artist associate who will give feedback on the work created during the residency. Artists will have access to the Foundation’s extensive Library Resource Center. The Library contains books by many modern, surrealist, and contemporary artists, such as Roberto Matta, Gordon Onslow Ford, Wolfgang Paalen, Remedios Varo, John Anderson, Lee Mullican, and Morris Graves, among others.

Eligible artists must have an MFA or equivalent in independent studio work. Artists working in the visual arts, video/new media, music composition, and choreography will be considered. A short biography and recent résumé of artistic activities (exhibitions, performances, publications, etc.) from the last five years is required with the application, as well as an artist’s statement providing information about the work in relation to the mission of the Lucid Art Foundation (max. 1,000 characters). Submission of ten images of work created within the last two years for visual arts or one video (max 60MB) or one audio file (max 30MB) from the last two years for new media/video, music composition, and choreography is also required.

Artists arrange for their own transportation to and from the Lucid Art Foundation. There is no stipend and meals are not provided during the residency, but artists are welcome to harvest from the Foundation’s organic garden. A weekly lunch will be scheduled with staff, artist associates, or scholars.

Once a year, the Lucid Art Foundation will curate a show of the residency artists’ work at a local community art gallery. The artists will be asked to submit one or two works from the residency period or after. The artists are responsible for delivering the works to the gallery, and when the show ends, the artists are responsible for picking up their artwork or paying the shipping costs for them to be returned. Each artist will receive 50% of the proceeds of any sales. The remaining 50% of the proceeds will be split between the Foundation and the gallery.

To apply via CaFE: https://www.callforentry.org/festivals.php?reset=1&apply=yes

About: The mission of the Lucid Art Foundation is to explore the phenomena of the inner worlds and deep levels of consciousness through visual arts, spontaneous painting, and writings, and by other means, and in this way to make visible the otherwise invisible and find a more inclusive way of seeing that is in deeper harmony with natural world of which we are a part.
