"The way I have always looked at it is the world is in color. And there’s nothing we can do about that." - William Eggleston

The world is definitely in color, yet for photographers the decision to photograph in color is not always black and white. One of the raging debates within the photographic arts community over the past 50 years has been – What constitutes a truer form of fine-art photography: Black & white or color? For the first 130 years of photographic history it was definitely black & white. Black & white photography was the form of photography practiced by the true master craftsman and artists of the print medium – Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. 

Our juror for Color is Richard McCabe. Richard McCabe was born in Mildenhall, England and grew up in the American South. He received an MFA in Studio Art from Florida State University in 1998. That same year he received a fellowship to the American Photography Institute, National Graduate Seminar at New York University. Over the last 18 years, he has lived and worked in New York City and New Orleans, Louisiana. His art has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums throughout the United States. Mr. McCabe works primarily in photography, painting, and installation art. In December 2014, McCabe had a solo exhibition – Once Around the Sun – Instant Photographs by Richard McCabe, at Boyd Satellite Gallery, New Orleans. Currently, Mr. McCabe is the Curator of Photography at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Exhibition Details 35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. Openings are timed to coincide with  Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.

The San Francisco Women Artists (SFWA) organization, located in the City’s Inner Sunset neighborhood, is pleased to announce this Open Competition for our September Salon exhibition.  Bay Area artists of all genders are invited to submit work for this juried exhibition. 2D artworks of any medium except video are welcomed. Maximum width for any piece is 50" INCLUDING FRAME, unless prior permission from gallery has been obtained. 

The theme for this exhibit is "FREE TO BE" –  Providing solidarity and strength through shared self-expression, the ARTS remain essential, and perhaps even more so now during times such as these. We believe that Art mirrors the human experience and helps shape our culture. We also know that we exist in a society where many are not truly free, certain groups marginalized, and where communities of color have historically faced injustice and inequality. Through its potential for deep understanding, through its courageous challenges to our perceptions, and through a forging of  deep human relatedness, Art can lead us to a more just world.   

Your imagery relating to this diversity and its affirmation, showing support of inclusiveness, self-acceptance and equality is gratefully invited.

Please carefully read the Call for Entries for complete details.

CALL FOR ART AND STORIES

When I was young, I spent a summer reading I, Robot by Issac Asimov and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. Those two books formed the foundation of my fascination with the Science Fiction genre and with those wonderfully diverse creatures we call robots. Through the years, I've enjoyed the myriad of depictions of robots in books, art, and entertainment. So, when the ArtOrder team sat down to discuss our next themed book - it was no surprise that I pushed heavily for a robot theme.

I want When Robots Dream to be the ultimate collection of robotic art and stories. I'm looking for images and stories that get out of the normal clichés and offer the fans something unique and interesting.

Sierra Art Trails 2020 has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Call to Artists for the 18th annual Sierra Art Trails will begin Feb 1st, 2021.  

We are excited to share 18 years of experience with our artists, patrons and supporters!  

The cost to participate as an artist is $150 USD, $25 due when applying, and the $125 balance due upon acceptance.

The Exhibit Prosepectus is available on the Sierra Art Trails website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/ 

The exhibit is the largest art event in our area, showcasing a wide range of fine art and fine craft in communities throughout Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties.

The region encompassed by the show includes Oakhurst, Coarsegold, North Fork, Yosemite Lakes Park , and communities along Highway 49 from Ahwahnee to Mariposa. The show takes place in artist’s studios, homes, art galleries, wineries, and other businesses throughout the area.

Sierra Art Trails is open to visual artists and artisans working in all media including but not limited to; painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, printmaking, mixed media, papermaking, woodcarving, digital art, jewelry, textile arts, and art glass.  Mass produced crafts, gift items, etc. will not be accepted.

Sierra Art Trails is open to both local artists and artists from outside the area.  Artists with studios located in Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties are encouraged to show in their home studios, and to share their show sites with others.

The planning committee will work with artists who do not have access to a suitable show site to help them find a location to show their work.  First consideration is given to artists living within the area, but the show is open to any artist interested in participating in the event, regardless of where they live.

Artists must be Present to Participate - Artists must be present at their sites both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Friday is an optional day for participating artists. 

Since our first exhibit in 2003, Sierra Art Trails has built a dedicated audience excited to attend year after year. In addition to visiting with the artists and purchasing works directly from the people who create them, visitors are encouraged to explore our communities, patronize our hotels and restaurants, and learn more about our area.

As an artist, there are many reasons to consider applying for the show. Participating artists are featured in the tour catalog, included in a month-long Preview Exhibit, and benefit from an extensive advertising campaign.  While successful sales are important, the promotional exposure alone is well worth the cost of participation.  Networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post show sales often result from participation in Sierra Art Trails.

Artists interested in applying can view the complete prospectus, and find general information on our website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/
