Visual AIDS (NY), International Call for Artists: 21st Annual Postcards from the Edge

Visual AIDS (NY), International Call for Artists: 21st Annual Postcards from the Edge

Deadline: December 3rd, 2018 (Postmark)

Since 1998, Visual AIDS has produced the annual Postcards From The Edge exhibition and benefit sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists.

The 21st Annual Postcards from the Edge will be hosted by Bortolami, 39 Walker Street, Tribeca b/w Church St. and Broadway, NYC, NY,  February 22nd – 24th, 2019

Known within the art world as the most exciting and affordable way to add to a collection, Postcards From the Edge offers a unique opportunity for buyers to acquire original, postcard-sized artwork for less than a round of cocktails (give or take a martini). Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, each piece is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who’s just making his/her debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love.

Most importantly, by participating in Postcards From the Edge artists and collectors support the activities of Visual AIDS, enabling the organization to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs and provide supplies and assistance to artists living with HIV/AIDS, many who are unable to continue producing work without such support. All Postcards From the Edge proceeds support the programs of Visual AIDS.

Past Postcards From the Edge Participants: John Baldessari, Adam Fuss, Carrie Mae Weems, Jeff Koons, Mark Bradford, Sol LeWitt, Kerry James Marshall, Glenn Ligon, Yoko Ono, Kara Walker, Bill Viola, Catherine Opie, Kiki Smith, Tony Oursler, Vik Muniz, Jim Shaw, Elizabeth Murray, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Sarah Sze, Louise Bourgeois, and more….

They are looking for artists to donate a 4″x6″ original work of art; painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and mixed media are all welcome.

Bay Area Art Grind: 10 Years After

Ten years ago today, a blog was born.

September 2008: A group of graduate students at San Jose State University bandied about a big idea of a website for artists, by artists, around for several weeks. This big idea, as we called it in the beginning, was for a website of curated calls and opportunities for artists. Initially, we wanted to post information pertinent for the SJSU MFA grad students at the time, but also let them know of exhibition opportunities and current job postings. We called the site the SJSU Art Blog and the first post was ten years ago today, October 15th, 2008. Over time, we found our audience grew beyond SJSU and in 2011, we changed the name to the Bay Area Art Grind.

Calls and opportunities are screened weekly. Sometimes, organizations email us with opportunities. In most cases, we search daily for calls and opportunities to post. When a promising opportunity is found, the editor(s) check out the links to the site to see if all the information is still current and legitimate, look at past exhibitions at the venue, check the fees (ridiculous or somewhat reasonable or the always wonderful –no fee), and post the opportunity. Our goal at Bay Area Art Grind has been, and will always be, to try to help other artists find opportunities we wouldn’t mind having on our own artist resume, or that elusive job in the arts, or information to help other artists. It is a time consuming, process—but, as editor, it has become my own personal mission to help other artists 10 years on…and it will always be a free service for our audience. Navigating the roads of an art career, possibly balanced with another job(s) to support art making, taking care of family or just oneself, and trying to find time to make art as well as finding opportunities makes for a full plate…. and we just want to help.

I hope you continue to find Bay Area Art Grind useful for your art endeavors. And we always enjoy hearing how an opportunity found on our site has helped your art career–share your stories with us!

Happy Birthday to us at Bay Area Art Grind…and keep making art!

Best,
Barb Horiuchi
Editor, Bay Area Art Grind

Est-Nord-Est (ENE) is an artist-run centre the mandate of which is to provide an international community of artists and authors in contemporary art with support by offering space and time for research and experimentation, as well as privileged access to local resources and knowhow.

The year 2019 is pivotal in the history of ENE: following the complete reconstruction of the centre’s premises on its current site, the year will be one of change as ENE inaugurates its new home.

The centre is situated in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, a village on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, in a unique geographic and historical locale. The predominant aspects of the landscapes are farms, forests, and the river. Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is situated 115 km from Quebec City and 350 km from Montreal, Canada.

Originally based on the idea of encounters between sculptors with contemporary practices and those using regional traditional skills, ENE now welcomes contemporary visual-arts artists from all disciplines. The residencies at ENE are intended for professional artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. They offer artists and authors an opportunity to explore their research more deeply, to experiment, and to create in a cultural space that is unique, lively, and stimulating. ENE is a member of Res Artis, Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes and of the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec.

The eight-week residency periods bring together four artists and one author writing about contemporary art and are generally offered in the spring, summer, and fall. However, this year ENE undertook a major capital investment project, as part of which its premises will be completely reconstructed by summer 2019. Due to this major construction project, ENE is cancelling its spring 2019 residency and will offer residencies in the summer and fall. As a consequence, only eight artists and two authors will be selected for ENE’s 2019 programming, which will be held in the new building for the first time.

The 8-Week Residency Includes:

  • Residency honorarium of $1,500
  • Access to an individual studio-workshop to be used for work and lodging
  • Access to specialized equipment (wood, metal, ceramics)
  • Access to a documentation centre (books, magazines)
  • Access to local resources
  • Technical and logistical support
  • Use of a bicycle

Residency dates:
Summer: July 8th to August 30th, 2019
Fall: September 16th to November 8th, 2019

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

Innovate_and_Investigate_folds-Crops_A_2011_03

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

Deadline: November 14th, 2018, 11:59pm EST

From their call: If you describe something as surreal, you mean that the elements in it are combined in a way you would not normally expect, as in a dream.

Anyone who’s taken a lot of photos has  undoubtedly created an image, either intentionally or by accident, which has an element or elements that don’t quite fit, that look out of place. This can be pleasing or disturbing, it can be  subtle, like something fleetingly glimpsed in the corner of the eye. Or it can be a jarring and distinct part of the composition –for example the paintings of Magritte or the photos of Man Ray.

Your challenge for this exhibit is to find something in your photos that seems out of place.  It doesn’t have to be an in-your-face element; in fact, less obvious can be better, giving the viewer a double take experience or a mystery to contemplate. But both the subtle and the blatant will fit this theme, Surreal, quite well. Imagination is the key.

Juror: Ralph Hassenpflug is an internationally acclaimed photographer whose work has been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Budapest, and Moscow, among many other locations.His work consists primarily of black and white images illustrating the themes of exile and of haunting landscapes in the USA and in Europe.

He’s well known as a tutor and teacher, working from his studio in Camden, ME. He’s begun a series of workshops, the first to be held in Paris in November, that emphasize the use of dream imagery, depth psychology, and personal vision in creative photography.

 Entry fee.

Pilchuck Glass School (WA), Call for Applicants: 2019 John H. Hauberg Fellowship

Deadline: November 15th, 2018

Residency Dates: May 21st – June 19th, 2019

Named for Pilchuck co-founder John H. Hauberg (1916–2002)—philanthropist, art collector, and important patron of artists—the fellowship was established to encourage collaboration among a group of outstanding artists.

Groups of up to six members are invited to submit an application to utilize the Pilchuck studios and campus environment for research and development of artwork based on a common theme or a collaborative project.

Group members provide technical support for each other in the exploration of new working methods and engage in critical dialogue. Visual artists in all media as well as writers, poets, art critics, and curators are encouraged to apply; however, if proposing to use glassmaking equipment, some members of the group must have previous experience with Pilchuck’s facilities, as limited technical assistance is available.

Open studio space and access to Pilchuck’s Mold & Kiln Shop, Cold Shop, Print Shop, and Wood & Metals Shop is provided. During this time, Pilchuck’s hot glass facilities are being used for production, and therefore no hot glassworking is available. Hauberg Fellows are provided living accommodations, meals, and limited supplies. Reimbursement for travel costs and honorarium are not provided.

Entry fee: $50.
