Deadline: May 31, 2017 – BLACK & WHITE 2017 – Call for Entries – National Juried Art Show – NYC

BLACK & WHITE – Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coaltion (BWAC) is We are excited to announce our third Black & White national juried art show, opening July 29, 2017.

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: Early Bird May 10 or

.
Gallery Exhibition Dates: July 29 – August 20, 2017 weekends 1-6 P.M.
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 29, 2017 from 1-6 P.M.

Details:
We bathe in the beauty of color and spin thousands of words describing the experience that the cone cells transmit to our brain.  In reality, they are not nearly as numerous as our rods, the cells that register light and dark, the black and white of our experience.  Our rods are less articulated in language; fewer words are generated to describe that experience.  Black & white is primal, the underneath, the foundation, of the opulence of color; black & white is where we register motion and, when the cones do not have sufficient light, our rods optimize our survival in the night woods.  Black & White intends to explore this underground of survival and few words.  Our unique, enormous space affords us the opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it.

Juror:
Alison Hokanson is an Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She holds a BA from Brown University and an MA and PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where she studied Minimalism before writing her dissertation on Belgian Realism and Symbolism. Her recent projects include exhibitions on the whaling scenes of Joseph Mallord, William Turner and on The Met’s collection of Pre-Raphaelite art and design. She publishes and lectures on topics ranging from Impressionist painting to Symbolist drawing, and was previously a juror for the National Arts Club’s Artist Members Exhibition.

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: June 29, 2016 – One Minute Films / Call For Submissions – Minnesota

The New Bohemian Gallery

In a fast paced world with information and imagery coming at us from all directions, the majority on screens, in the form of advertisements and short videos on YouTube and other social media sites it is hard to escape what we consume on a daily basis. In this exhibition we want to focus on the concept of short films and what they can be outside of what we are so familiar with. We seek artworks that are experimental as well as traditional in filming techniques and genres. The time frame may sound short, but with the right ideas, techniques, and creativity a unique film piece will emerge. We welcome submissions from filmmakers and film enthusiasts at all levels, and encourage the use of all tools to capture and create a short one minute film for this exhibition.

Reflection is defined as “The throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it.” But it’s more than that. It’s the contemplation of the spirit and mind. It’s the light that bounces back into us and the darkness. It’s the thing that all sensation and thought evolves from. In this call for submissions we want to see your reflections, your take on all surfaces, whether physical, spiritual, mental or intellectual.

Calls for submissions are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

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.
