Northern Illinois University Art Museum, National Call for Entries: Transparent Factors (in Form and Content)

Northern Illinois University Art Museum, National Call for Entries: Transparent Factors (in Form and Content)

Deadline: July 31st, 2018

Exhibition Theme:  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.

Eligibility: The NIU Art museum is currently accepting submissions in all media. This call is open to all artists in the United States 18 years of age or older.

Size limitations: Two people must be able to handle and install the submitted artwork which must also fit through a single do or (36” wide x 84” tall).

In part, coming from a national Call for Entry, local invitational, and works borrowed from regional public and private collections this staff-curated exhibition is to be held at the NIU Art Museum in Winter 2018 – Spring 2019.

About Embark Gallery: Embark’s programing represents the diversity of the talented artists studying at eight local art institutions.

Applicants may apply for one or all shows. Applying to more than one show will not affect your chances of being selected.

Exhibitions: 
Taking Temperature (Exhibition Dates: September 7th – October 13th, 2018): In partnership with The COAL + ICE Project, a documentary photography exhibition and climate festival coming to San Francisco this Fall, Embark Arts seeks artwork that responds to the environmental and political complexities of the climate change crisis. On both a personal and global scale, how have these shifts affected landscapes, cultures, and communities? What are the implications of living in a country whose government actively denies climate science? Possible themes include, but are certainly not limited to, extreme weather events, apocalyptic predictions for the future, public land use and regulations, and hope in the form of environmental activism. We would like to focus on how these issues can be addressed through a variety of art forms and as such we encourage artists working in all mediums, including performance, to apply. Link.

Wave Forms (Exhibition Dates: October 26th – December 1st, 2018): Embark Gallery seeks artworks that engage meaningfully with light and/or sound. This exhibition will ruminate on how these forces can be effective as the focus of a visual artwork, or how they can enhance a viewing experience. Artwork should capture the unique energy of light and sound waves, considering the vast diversity of both and/or how they can function together. Embark seeks a broad applicant pool for this show in order to demonstrate a variety of approaches to light and sound art, and as such encourage artists working in all mediums (including performance) to apply.

Ground Floor Gallery (TN), Open Call for Artists, 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibition–Rhythm and Rush!

Ground Floor Gallery (TN), Open Call for Artists, 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibition–Rhythm and Rush! 

Deadline: July 15th, 2018

From their call: Ground Floor Gallery + Studios’ 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibition–Rhythm and Rush! We are honored to have those juried by Catherine Haggarty. As always, selected artists will be chosen for the gallery show and ‘Best of Show’ chosen from those will receive a solo exhibition.

New this year, at least one image of ALL artists that submit will be included in a bound photo book Ground Floor presents to Catherine Haggarty as a gift.

– 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.

Website link: https://groundflrgallery.com/submissions-2/

About: Ground Floor Gallery is committed to providing exhibitions with depth and relevance in multiple disciplines for a diverse audience. Ground Floor Gallery presents artists with the opportunity to exhibit their work in a collective artist community. We increase their exposure to art professionals and connect them with potential buyers. The gallery is currently accepting proposals for individual and group shows. We also have juried exhibitions and host shows curated by artists that occupy the studios. During juried group exhibitions artists set their prices and keep 70% of their sales. This allows artists to take risks that are not generally supported by commercial galleries.

International Call for Applicants: Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grants

International Call for Applicants: Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grants

Deadline: Ongoing*

*Note: The application form will be down from June 1st – 17th, 2018. The last day to submit any applications will be May 31st, 2018. Applications in process not submitted by May 31st, 2018 will be deleted. The application process will resume June 18th, 2018.

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial need, whether professional, personal or both. The Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as professional artists over a significant period of time. Pollock-Krasner grants have enabled artists to create new work, purchase needed materials and pay for studio rent, as well as their personal and medical expenses. Past recipients of Pollock-Krasner grants acknowledge their critical impact in allowing concentrated time for studio work, and in preparing for exhibitions and other professional opportunities such as accepting a residency.

Application Guidelines: The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will consider need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate expenditures relating to his or her professional work and personal living, including medical expenses. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in professional artistic venues, such as gallery and museum spaces.

Grant Restrictions: The Foundation does not accept applications from commercial artists, video artists, performance artists, filmmakers, crafts-makers, computer artists or any artist whose work primarily falls into these categories. The Foundation does not make grants to students or fund academic study. The Foundation does not make grants to pay for past debts, legal fees, the purchase of real estate, moves to other cities, personal travel, or to pay for the costs of installations, commissions or projects ordered by othe

Purpose: The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. was established in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to individual working visual artists of established ability through the generosity of the late Lee Krasner, one of the leading abstract expressionist painters and the widow of Jackson Pollock. The Foundation is pleased to report that since its inception in 1985, it has awarded over 4,400 grants totaling over 71 million dollars to artists in 77 countries.
