SUBMISSION FORM

The nude, one of the most recognizable subject matter in the history of art. It is the natural human form that can express so much beauty and emotion, but at the same time be highly controversial. Viewed in so many ways, both positively and negatively, from its true representation to idealizing it for what it can be, the human form has changed and moved us greatly over time. We are seeking artwork based on the nude figure that shows skill and dedication to traditional forms, work that focuses on contemporary ideas, as well as pieces that break the barriers of tradition and push the social and psychological buttons to the next level. We hope to find artists that view and present the nude human body in a different, but interesting way through their artwork. All styles from abstract, conceptual, highly realistic, etc., in the forms of nude, semi nude, and implied nude will be accepted.

Submission Guidelines

All artwork accepted, from established and emerging artists, 18 or older, including but not limited to: painting, drawing, design, printmaking, photography, sculpture, installation art, video, and new media. All exhibitions are curated by The New Bohemian Gallery directors.

Deadline: June 25, 2016 – SKETCHORAMA / Sketchbook Exhibition – Minnesota

The New Bohemian Gallery

Sketchbooks have been around for years and are used by everyone, whether for sketching and creating or simply for taking notes, making lists, and keeping information organized. They are a small glimpse into a whole other world of ideas, randomness, complete and unfinished process, and always a beginning to something new. Many times these special books that become an essential part of a person’s life are never seen by anyone other than their owner. In this exhibition we hope to change that by allowing artists to participate and submit a sketchbook for the community to open and explore for themselves. Those that participate will be given a sketchbook to do what ever they would like with, with exception of course. You will have a little over three months to complete your book and send it back to our gallery to be displayed in the exhibition. In addition to having the books on display, at least one image/page from each sketchbook will be selected by the gallery directors to be scanned and printed in a print/poster format. This will then be hung on the walls alongside the sketchbooks in the gallery. There is no specific theme for the sketchbooks in this exhibition, so take your time and come up with some great ideas, and then really get into – draw, write, collage, cut, print, and photograph your way to filling up the pages! We are very excited to bring this fun and interesting exhibition to you later this year, but need your support and participation now to make everything come together. We hope you will join us!

Deadline: May 2, 2016 – Call For Art | Make Art Great Again

The Resident Artists Gallery at The Franklin Arts Center in Brainerd MN is now accepting submissions for “Make Art Great Again: On Borders, Walls, and Duality”, a new collective exhibition. Our gallery committee has been busy absorbing the divisive language flooding the present political atmosphere, and tracing its threads back into history. Refugee crises and border walls emit historical echoes of apartheid and the Cold War, the cultural and physical divisions of Israel, South Africa, and the Koreas. Searchers in the West have spent the last few decades tearing down the wall between politics and spirituality by turning to the wisdom of Eastern philosophy to help explain the ancient polarities of have/have not, good/evil, and us/them, looking for a road map out of a seemingly eternal struggle that feels both futile and inevitable. We look forward to seeing your submissions exploring these subjects, and yes, we will entertain your Trump portraits.

The deadline for art received is Monday, May 2nd.

The opening reception for this show is May 6th from 5-8 and will run from May 7th through June 25th.

Deadline: May 15, 2016 – On the Move – Call for Entries

Our travels have an affect on us, regardless of whether they’re long term, short term, for business or pleasure.  They reinforce or alter our opinions and provide us with new perspectives that contribute to our individuality and creativity. In this call for entries share with us your work that has been inspired by any of your travels!

The artists will be asked if they wish to submit their artwork for the collective exhibition, which is not a requirement to being a part of the online exhibition.

Figures & Faces International Online Juried Art Exhibition opens March 1, 2016

Fusion Art is pleased to announce the opening of its March 2016 International Online Juried Art Exhibition, “Figures & Faces.”

Opening on March 1st, the “Figures & Faces” exhibition features awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Photography & Digital Art. The Best in Show winners include Joshua Langley for his oil on canvas, “Little Scamps”, and Bin Feng for his archival pigment print, “The American Dream – The Male Gaze.”

Both Joshua and Bin are Fusion Art’s Featured Artists for the month of March 2016 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists are also invited to participate in Fusion Art’s Annual Group Show in Palm Springs, CA, in November 2016.

Other “Figures & Faces” award winners include Second Place winners, Debi Pickler, for her pencil drawing, “Character” and Ron Testa, for his digital photograph, “Ziggy’s Lady.” Third Place awards were given to Cindy Shames for her, colored pencil and pan pastel, “Microphone” and Molly Phalen for her, silver gelatin print, “The Guardian.”

The international juried competition was held from January 8th through February 24th and received entries from artists in over eleven countries including the US, Canada, England, China, Russia, Israel, India, Estonia, Australia, Portugal, and France.  The exhibition will be featured on the Fusion Art website until March 31, 2016.

Founded by Award winning artist, Chris Hoffman, Fusion Art was envisioned and formed out of a passion for art and the artists who create it. The website promotes and connects new, emerging and established artists with collectors and art enthusiasts, while offering the opportunity to participate in art competitions and experiences.

Each month Fusion Art hosts uniquely themed art competitions and exhibitions. Both winners and finalists are provided with worldwide exposure, by having their work promoted through Fusion Art’s website, in 70+ press release announcements, email marketing and through the gallery’s social media outlets. An additional unique opportunity Fusion Art provides to the monthly Best in Show winners is an invitation to participate in Fusion Art’s group exhibition in Palm Springs, CA in November 2016.

To view the exhibition, and for further information on all the winners and finalists, please visit Fusion Art’s website, http://fusionartps.com.

A Journey of Epic Proportions: “From Here to There” – NYC

Seventeen artists collaborate in the exhibition From Here to There to bring a New York audience on a magnificent journey of self-discovery, expression, and realization. Buzzing in energy, color, form, and texture, the works on display hint at real worlds while obscuring just enough to direct the viewer’s experience and effectively control the conversation. Abstractions flourish across canvas, while figures bend and transform before the viewers’ eyes. Varying on the scale of fiction and reality, the artworks featured tell a unique story of humanity, nature, and society in inventive ways. Most of all, however, they tell a story of movement and change: making this an exhibition that truly takes you from one state of mind to somewhere completely new and exciting.

Agora Gallery opens its doors for public viewing of this exhibition on March  8th  with a reception on Thursday March 10th, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.

Exhibition Dates: March 8, 2016 – March 29, 2016
