BWAC Call for Entry

Material Matters: Breaking with Tradition

  • | Start Date: 4/20/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 6/28/2018 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: BWAC

As an expression of culture, art is often unconventional and rebellious; experimental and insightful. Yet, art by necessity relies upon familiar traditions to achieve its unconventional ends. This is why the better we know our traditions, the more cleverly we can break them.

The annual exhibition, Material Matters, asks artists who work in a variety of traditional materials -- clay, glass, wood, metal or fiber/textile -- to consider the traditions underpinning their work and the rules and conventions they break in method or material. Artists are invited to submit original works that change traditional "ways of seeing" by demonstrating a break with the past or suggesting a new way forward, whether toward logical or illogical conclusions.

 

Melissa Stern is an artist and journalist. Her drawing and sculpture have been exhibited in museums, galleries, private and corporate collections throughout the world.  Stern uses a wide range of materials including encaustic, clay, pastel, and steel. Her sculptural work includes found objects, souvenirs, vintage magazines and books as well as fabricated images and sculpture. Her art reviews and cultural commentary have been featured in Hyperallergic, a Brooklyn-based digital arts publication, and she serves as Art Editor for Posit, a journal of literature and art.

 

$450 in cash awards, including $250 GOLD prize.

Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Theme | The Found Object

  • | Start Date: 6/16/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

A "found object" is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, a fork, shopping carts, old photographs, signs, doll heads, industrial machinery, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… as long asthe artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality - stemming from its appearance, social or personal history.

Praxis gallery seeks photographic art that explores this idiom. Submissions may be a study of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility. Conversely, the representation of the object may be a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The Altered World. We want to celebrate photographic manipulation in all it’s forms at the SE Center. Our juror, Claire Rosen, would like to see whimsy and less literal work with a strong concept. 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 are welcome.

Our juror for the Altered World is Clair Rosen,  an award-winning artist whose elaborate constructions often feature anthropomorphic animals, archetypal heroines, or symbolic still-lives evoking the aesthetics of classical painting influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and referencing the Victorian Era. The transportive images captivate with a fascination of the natural world and ideals of beauty.

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, the SE Center announces the SE Center Purchase Award. One image, from those selected for inclusion in the exhibition, will be purchased from the artist for inclusion in the SE Center's collection.
