About: Bullseye Glass Co. was founded in 1974 by three recent art school graduates and has remained, at its core, a factory for artists. Since its inception, Bullseye has invited artists to the factory in Portland, Oregon, to collaborate, experiment, ask questions, and push the boundaries of the material. Today, Bullseye has grown beyond a single factory. In addition to the Bullseye Studio in Portland, we now have studios at our Resource Centers in Santa Fe, the San Francisco Bay Area, and New York. These locations provide us with the opportunity to work with even more artists. Bullseye will host two residencies per year at each of our RC studio locations, allowing even more artists to experiment with tools and techniques while we all collaborate on pushing the technical, aesthetic, and conceptual boundaries of kiln-glass.

The Franklin Furnace Fund 2017-2018 is supported by the Jerome Foundation, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by general operating support from the New York State Council on the Arts.

Artists from all over the world are encouraged to apply; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York. Artists supported by funding from Jerome Foundation must live in the five boroughs of New York City or the state of Minnesota. Full-time students are ineligible.

Note: Before you can access the Franklin Furnace Fund 2017-2018 application form, you must first complete a brief questionnaire that will help determine your eligibility. If eligibility is confirmed, you will be provided with a link to the online application.

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.

Website link: http://sweetwaterartcenter.org/call-for-artists/

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. Creativity can feed off the inspiration of current events and/or a personal vision. We are looking for artists’ responses to these times in which we live, in 2017.
Fight or Flight is open to all media with the exception of digital art and giclee prints.
 .
 .
About: The Painting Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to the exploration of painting in all its possibilities; it does not champion one school or tradition, but welcomes and encourages diverse viewpoints regardless of their market appeal. The Painting Center is a gathering place for painters and those who love painting; it is a democratic arena that fosters dialogue, experimentation, and community among artists.
