AN OPEN CALL FOR “FINE GRIT”

A NATIONAL JURIED ART SHOW NYC APRIL 13 – MAY 12, 2024

 

“What you make from a tree should be at least as miraculous as what you cut down.”

Richard Powers, The Overstory

 

Fine Grit: Art & Ideas in Wood

Fine Grit is an exhibition of contemporary artists who use wood as a primary material in their work. From traditional techniques such as hand carved sculpture, woodcuts and pyrography to more recent technologies such as laser engraving and 3D printing, artists have long used wood as a source material and medium. Wood comes directly from nature and each piece has its own unique lifecycle, evident in the processes artists and other makers utilize while working with it. 

 

Fine Grit will feature artists who make work out of wood using a variety of different techniques, methods, aesthetics and scale. Particular interest will be given to artists who consider the origin of their materials and who use wood as subject matter, addressing topics such as forestry, ecology, architecture, human consumption and the changing climate.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is an artist-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit. With 25,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space set in a Civil War-era warehouse on the waterfront of Red Hook Brooklyn. The wood beams original to this 1860s historic structure supports not only the gallery walls but artworks on view.

The show will be curated by Alicia Degener, artist and President of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition. BWAC provides exhibition opportunities to artists of various levels of experience as well as professional development and public engagement. Explore membership opportunities at bwac.org

JUROR - JODY MILLER

NVAL is pleased to have Jody Miller as our juror this year.

In her own words:

I have been a photographer for most of my life. I've been making images since I was nine years old, but my real education started in 1982 when I attended the Ansel Adams workshop in Carmel, California. I've been making fine art images non-stop since then.

I spent 40 years as a designer / animator for the television industry in Hollywood, so my profession melded beautifully with my favorite pastime. I now live in Astoria, Oregon, and love the ever-changing light that makes this area so magical.

My body of work has been evolving for over 40 years and has come to fruition in this portfolio of images I share on my webpage - https://www.jodymillerphoto.com/.  I am represented by LightBox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.

Please see the PROSPECTUS for more information.

Regional Show Framing Program -- $15 to rent one of NVAL's frames and have NVAL frame your work.  DETAILS HERE or go to NVAL.org, select Shows/Photography/Regional and click on the Framing Program link.

Main Juror: 

Maria Haag grew up between North Dakota and Kansas, and currently lives in Dallas, Texas. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas and her Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas. She received the Charles and Margaret Pollack art purchase award from the Mulvane Museum in Topeka, Kansas, and in 2017, 2018, and 2019 she participated in Dallas in Prizzi, a community inspired mural project in Prizzi, Sicily. She has participated in group shows at the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center, Project Gallery V in New York, Austin College in Sherman, TX, Art Center of the Bluegrass in Danville, KY, and Kansas City Artists Coalition, among others. Solo exhibitions include the Cora Stafford Gallery in Denton, TX, Arts Fort Worth in Fort Worth, TX, and Pencil on Paper Gallery in Dallas, TX. Every day, she feels caught in a cycle of destruction and transformation and translates that sensation into her work. She captures bodies hovering between decay and transformation, broken images whirling through a maelstrom of memory. The physical surfaces she creates mirror the transitions of physical and spiritual bodies. Their fragility is reflected in physically and digitally broken objects, crusted with layers of paint, charcoal, and collage.

 

Art that Speaks to Me Juror:  Frisco City Councilman, Bill Woodard

Plein Air painting dates back to the French impressionists who left their studios to paint “in the open air.” Plein Air painting is exhilarating and challenging for artists who attempt to quickly capture the light and colors of the scene before them. The French term "plein air" means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pieces out of doors rather than in a studio.

 

There will be a welcome reception for artisits as well as a final reception open to the public during which wet paint competition art pieces will also be sold.  Awards presentation for the overall three-day artwork and for wet paint competition will take place during the final reception on 4/27. Each day completed Plein Air artwork will be exhibited at The Grove at the Commons and will be available for purchase.  All artwork completed during this competition must be for sale and cannot leave with collector or artists until end of evening public awards reception 4/27/24.

We do have our returning hotel sponsor ( Hampton Inn & Suites Dallas/Frisco North ) with discounted stays for our group and your guests as well as hosting our complimentary 'artist meet & greet mixer' the evening before playing artistically begins:

The fine art nude has been a celebrated subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the nude has been featured in a classical pose and setting, maturing to illustrating the human body as a sculptural abstraction, and with some pushing boundaries.

 Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations where legal are welcome.

Our juror for The Nude is Zoe Wiseman. Wiseman has been involved with photography as a model since 1974 and as a photographer since 2001. Zoe has a passion for fine art and portraiture. 

Zoe has been published in several magazines, movie soundtracks, newspapers and books as both model and photographer. Sometimes both modeling and photography in the same publication. Her photography and modeling work is collected worldwide. 

Since 1998 Wiseman has run websites promoting the art of photographers from all over the world. She has held yearly festivals since 2002 inviting models and photographers to gather for a week to immerse themselves in a nurturing atmosphere. They have traveled far and wide to attend, from Australia, Ireland, Germany, England and several states within the U.S.A. More may be read about these artist retreats at ZoeFest.photo

 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. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show.

NYC4PA Call for Entry

NYC4PA DECAY CORROSION RUST

  • | Start Date: 1/14/2024 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 4/14/2024 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $10.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: NYC4PA

DECAY, CORROSION, RUST...

“And behind door number 2 – a brand new…….”

US television prizes – all about the “new”.  Though we often focus on the new and shiny there is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted and it can make images of those items so much more compelling and interesting.

Consider the textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory or prison, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard.  Neighborhoods, disparagingly called "run down", are treasure troves of "decayed" tumble down houses, "corroded" discarded toys, "rusted" cars, trash cans and so on. 

 Decay, Corrosion, Rust.... can take many forms; black and white, color, abstract - all photographic media are welcome. 

As with all NYC4PA calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.  Note – Images awarded an NYC4PA prize within the past 2 years are not eligible. Images submitted that were not selected for a prize may be submitted at any time.

All artwork must be created within the past three years. 

The jury may accept a maximum of two works from any one artist.  Payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.

Portals is one of our favorite themes.  It allows for so much creativity capturing things that are all around wherever we may be.  

 

Doors and windows and arches and frames and tunnels are so much a part of our lives. There are so many ways to think about them. We can look at them, or through them.  We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or just see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

 

For this call your images can focus on the "portal" itself like a half closed door, a wonderful windowsill or the view through an archway to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes.

Once again, we invite you to be creative and have fun in the process. 

As with all calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.  Note – Images awarded an NYC4PA prize within the past 2 years are not eligible. Images submitted that were not selected for a prize may be submitted at any time.

The Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC) invites artists to submit work for inclusion in What’s So Funny?  an open juried exhibition at the Cultural Center and online at RNACexhibitions.com.

Humor in art serves many purposes, as a light moment in dark times, as a commentary to illuminate or challenge, or simply as a small treat, a bit of candy.  It appears throughout art history in various periods and stylesin the mischievous work of Duchamp and Oldenburg; the dark satires of Goya and Grosz; the clever spotlight on everyday life of Breughel and Saul Steinberg; the biting expressionism of Robert Colescott; the laugh-out-loud body parts series of John Baldessari; and in the gentle, unpretentious self-portraits of Milton Avery.

RNAC is inviting artists to submit work (in all mediums)which embodies elements of humor. It may be reflected in the style, subject matter, mood, materials, method of execution or in whatever way the artist chooses.  The work will be judged on its capacity to provoke thought, introduce commentary, and, not least, to amuse! Let’s make ‘em think, giggle, guffaw, and blush!

Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfections of nature and of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay. As artists we often seek items that are "perfect", with no blemishes or defects. Wabi Sabi teaches us to find beauty in everyday life, to revere things that are imperfect, impermanent, and/or incomplete, to embrace crows feet, rust, and frayed edges, and "to celebrate the cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind.”

Any interpretation of the theme will be considered.  Cash prizes awarded for Best in Show, First Place, Second Place and Honorable Mention.

Submit your JPEG's by Sunday, July 14, 2024 by midnight.

SHOW DESCRIPTION: Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”

What is digital art: The digital artist uses pixels rather than paint. Pixels can be captured from DSLs to mobile devices. The artist develops images on computers, mobile phones and tablets to express their creative vision. Many styles of editing are accessible to the artist including digital drawing, digital painting, digital collage with photographs or experimental abstract design or apps. Digital Art is progressive!

All work should be of the artist’s own creation.  Digital painting, digital collage and digital photographic work can use AI images as a component, but not solely as the created work.   Editing software or apps that use components which are not generated by the artist, use of components of an image that are potentially recognizable by the original artist, or any use of word generated AI must be disclosed despite ownership or copyright agreements.

All artwork must be created within the past three years. 

The jury may accept a maximum of two works from any one artist.  Payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee acceptance.
