Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (CA), National Call for Entries: Memory & Perception

Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (CA), National Call for Entries: Memory & Perception

Deadline: September 27th, 2018, midnight PST

Theme: Memory and Perception
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.

Juror: Alan Bamberger
Alan is an internationally known art consultant, writer, and art reviewer located in San Francisco, CA where he has been actively involved with art for 40 years. His reviews of gallery and museum shows are eagerly anticipated both on his website, and his instagram account at @alanbamberger. His writings include hundreds of syndicated columns, articles and three books.

Open to all U.S. resident artists 18 and over. You are invited to submit up to 5 digital images of your original artwork completed in the past five years, not previously shown in a MarinMOCA or Artists of MarinMOCA exhibit. This exhibit is open to all media.

Awards:
First Place: $500.
Second Place: $300.
Third Place:$100.
Non-monetary Honorable Mention awards may be given at Juror’s discretion.

Entry fee.

National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (MN), International Call for Applicants: Emerging Ceramic Artists, 2019

ncecaNational Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (MN), International Call for Applicants: Emerging Ceramic Artists, 2019

Deadline: October 3rd, 2018, 11:59pm EST

NCECA’s Emerging Artists program recognizes exceptional early career artists highlighting them to an international audience during NCECA’s Annual Conference and promoting them year round through blog.nceca.net. The awards include opportunities for increased exposure through exhibition and special events.

NCECA believes that those creating work offering new/exciting/thoughtful perspectives on the ceramic medium, expanding upon genres of creative production and inquiry are qualified as candidates for its Emerging Artist awards. An Emerging Artist may be at the early stages of receiving recognition for his/her work but is currently underrepresented through exhibitions or publications that might otherwise bring the work to wide attention. The intent of the award is to recognize, cultivate and amplify vital, new voices of creative endeavor in ceramics. The award enables these artists to reach broader national and international audiences and impact discourse in the field.

Because the concept of emergence in the arts does not invariably correlate with a specific age, or other quantifiable terms, NCECA requires applicants to briefly describe why they perceive themselves to be at an emergent point in their careers and how they anticipate the award will impact the trajectory of their endeavors. The review committee, at their discretion, may eliminate candidates that are considered to be beyond “emerging.” Applicants are required to provide essays of support from two figures in the field who are familiar with the applicant’s work and their drive to create. The essays of support should provide the selection committee with a sense of the candidates’ seriousness of commitment and potential for continued development.

Eligibility: Applications are welcomed from artists working with ceramic materials/processes as a significant component of their work. A current NCECA Membership, at the time of application, is required to be eligible to apply for NCECA’s Emerging Artists. Applicants may not be students. Membership in NCECA is paid on an annual basis and is not included in conference registration. To renew or become a member of NCECA, go to: www.nceca.net/membership/

A Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2019 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

ABOGA Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2019 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Deadline: November 16th, 2018, 11:59pm EST

About the Fellowship: 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.

For these reasons, beginning this year we are separating our financial support to fellows from our content and audience-building work for the field into two separate programs. This decision reflects our dual commitment to supporting artists who engage in high risk and high trust work that wouldn’t benefit from increased visibility of the process, as well as to producing high quality video, web, and print content, and experiences that push the discourse and expand audience for the field of socially engaged art.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Field research conducted by ABOG’s Director of 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.

Fellowship Projects may become the focus of ABOG content and programming including:

  • Curriculum and advocacy that advance the field of socially engaged art
  • Inclusion in our new biannual periodical (available in print and free online)
  • Participation in documentary videos focused on curatorial themes of interest to the field
  • Other web content (podcasts, interviews, critical essays)
  • Participation in ongoing public programs

This year we streamlined the application process and are no longer asking for preliminary Letters of Interest. All interested and eligible applicants will submit their full narrative application and supplementals, with only finalists having to submit more detailed budgets and timelines.

Website link: http://www.abladeofgrass.org/fellowship-program/#how-to-apply

Note: This is a two-step application process. Semi-finalists from the first round will be invited to submit a full application with an extended narrative, budget, and a timeline.

About: A Blade of Grass nurtures socially engaged art. They provide resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. They evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue. They are located in New York City.

From alchemy to particle physics to wacky whimsy, interpretation of the theme is wide open – an Element’s mystique, mythology, discovery, uses throughout history, use in art, the magical areas between the particles of the atoms, philosophical or mystical flights of fancy – whatever brings it to life for you.

Many Elements are well known old friends – gold, iron, oxygen, and sodium to name a few. Some are less familiar, such as krypton, promethium, technetium, californium, and neptunium. The United Nations has proclaimed 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements.

Each entry must be accompanied by a Theme Statement – a brief explanation of how the artwork relates to the theme of the show. Theme Statements will be displayed on the wall next to the invited artwork. You will see boxes to enter your Theme Statements just above your portfolio as you choose which images you will enter. Please be sure to include the title of your image, so we know which statement goes with which image. (The ELEMENTS curators may reformat or shorten Theme Statements in order to create consistency throughout the exhibition.)

Selection Jurors: Gail Morrison; Betsy Kellas.

Prize Jurors: William Torphy, William Torphy Fine Arts; Christiane Stachl, Department of Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley. Each prize juror will award one $500 prize and three non-monetary Honorable Mentions.

The Foundation does not fund exhibitions, installations, or projects of any kind.

Last year, the Foundation awarded grants of $25,000 each to 12 artists.

Collar Works (NY), Open Call for Entries: Home

Collar Works (NY), Open Call for Entries: Home

Deadline: September 14th, 2018

From their call: Home is where the heart is. Home is where you hang your hat. Home away from home. Homemade; homegrown; homespun. In idioms such as these, and in countless others, the notion of “home” can be understood as expansively as it is clichéd. Sometimes home is a physical place for living–a fixed building with a foundation, or an otherwise portable shelter, where domestic activities such as sleeping, preparing and eating food, and hygienic rituals can be carried out. But home is also a sense of place–one that can conjure feelings of refuge, family, nurture, or protection. And, as a destination (“home base; phoning home; homeward bound”), the idea of home solicits a range of responses, from nostalgia (“there’s no place like home”) to urgency, as its definition today is continually called into question with every legislative dispute over what constitutes a “border” and a “homeland.”

The works in this exhibition consider notions of home in the expanded field. Whether speaking to one’s personal relationship to a physical or psychological space, or to a broad sense of what it means to come from someplace, the artists in this exhibition are united in their desire to confront this complicated topic.

Guest Curator:  Cara Manes, Assistant Curator of Painting and Sculpture, MoMA

Exhibition Dates: October 26th – December 22nd, 2018

SJMQTSan Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (CA), International Call for Artists: International TECHstyle Art Biennial (ITAB4)

Deadline: October 22nd, 2018

In 2010, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles launched its signature event, the International TECHstyle Art Biennial (ITAB). Returning now for its fourth incarnation, ITAB is a juried exhibition of work by artists merging fiber media with new information and communication technologies in their artistic processes, as a medium of artistic expression, and/or in the content of their work. Leveraging its location in Silicon Valley, ITAB serves as the premiere platform for introducing the work of artists exploring the intersection of fiber and technology to a global community.

Fibers, textiles, and the language of textile patterning have achieved wide attention in contemporary art practice often as a means of evoking an experience that is both historical and contemporary. ITAB seeks to expose and explore the tensions between and among works by artists using fiber media whose work employs diverse artistic disciplines: architecture, fashion, fiber art, installation art, interior design, new media, painting, sculpture, etc. Artwork demonstrating a keen understanding and mastery of the aesthetic, structural/technical, and semiotic possibilities of fiber and of digital, computerized, or networked information and communication technologies are the hallmark of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles’ International TECHstyle Art Biennial.

Artists may submit up to three (3) works. The entry fee is $35 for San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles members, $45 for non-members. Only one entry fee per artist is required (includes up to three submissions).

Jurors:  Nathalie Miebach, Clay Bavor, and Janet Echelman

Requirements: 1. Entries must be original work completed after 2016.
2. Artists must be 18 years of age or older.
3. Collaborative work will be considered as a single entry. Artists submitting both collaborative and individual works must apply separately.
4. Work must not exceed 6 feet in any single dimension and not more than 100 lbs.
5. Installation pieces must state total space requirement on entry form.
6. Work must be original in concept and design and not be the result of a class or workshop.
7. All work must be either fiber in content or executed in a fiber technique.
8. Work included in previous ITAB exhibitions will not be considered.

Link to prospectus with full details and to apply: http://sjquiltmuseumitab.org/

Website: https://www.sjquiltmuseum.org/

About: The mission of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is to promote and celebrate the art, creators, craft, and history of quilts and textiles. The Museum is the nexus for fiber artists, art lovers, collectors, quilters, and crafters who share a passion for fiber art and a deep commitment to its preservation and evolution.
