Call for Entry: Artist Roster for Wall Projects: 7/22

The Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) is creating a roster of artists who will be pre-qualified to be considered for commissions on walls in the County. They are seeking muralists, as well as artists who work in mosaic, tile, low-relief and other installation media that are suitable for temporary or permanent installation on exterior walls.

Artists chosen for inclusion in the Artist Roster for Wall Projects (Roster) will be eligible to be considered for a variety of current and future opportunities being facilitated by AHCMC. Currently, AHCMC has one opportunity at Clarksburg Premium Outlets and artists should indicate their interest in that commission on the Application Questionnaire.

Call for Submissions: Baltimore Snapshot: Ongoing

It can be difficult for artists to get exposure and Baltimore Snapshot, a photo series by Baltimore-based Photographer Nick Hanyok, is trying to change that. Each month, beginning in January 2018, Nick Hanyok will highlight an artist, giving a brief bio and a few examples of their work.

The photographer hopes to show how these Baltimore artists get inspired, the challenges they have overcome and the accomplishments they’ve achieved. “I want other artists to see these snapshots and realize, it may be tough, but that is no reason to give up on their dream. My hope is that any artistic mind sees these snapshots and it motivates them to keep creating!”

The secondary goal of Baltimore Snapshot is to help facilitate the changing image of Charm City. Baltimore is home to a vibrant arts scene made up of so many friendly and creative people, it’s alive with amazing talent in so many different forms. Yet, that’s not what you hear when people talk about Baltimore. It’s time to change that!

These two ideas are the foundations of Baltimore Snapshot: To give local artists a platform while showing the world that Baltimore is home to creative and friendly people. In addition to telling the artist’s story through the Snapshot, the photographer will provide the artist with various headshots, a featured artist directed shoot to help promote themselves and fully edited images for the artist to use how they wish. Each month Nick Hanyok Imaging will run paid ads on Facebook/Instagram to reach a larger audience and bring viewers to the Baltimore Snapshot.

“This ongoing photography project is my way of highlighting and helping Baltimore’s creative landscape and the charming city they live in”, Nick Hanyok.

Deadline: Ongoing.

Often our exhibitions will feature process areas where an artist reveals his or her working philosophy, even showing step-by-step progressions of artwork at times.

We seek to connect people with our exhibiting artists so that our community feels an affinity with the artists whose work is on display and a personal connection with the artwork itself.

We also work with the Morean’s education department to offer additional programming that enriches the viewer’s experience with our exhibitions. These may include gallery talks, panel discussions, special tours, master artist workshops, and hands-on activities for children. We welcome artists’ programming ideas, as well.

Most of the works in our exhibitions are for sale, with proceeds going to the exhibiting artists and to the programs at the Morean Arts Center.

Call for Participation: Sole Connection A Mile in Another’s Shoes: Ongoing

Help build an archive of personal journeys/stories symbolized by images of your shoes.

In this interconnected age of social media, we often forget to stop and meditate on the significance of the little things. While we may share with our close circle of friends and family, rarely do we offer those significant moments to our community at large. When we take the time to share in the subtleties of each other’s journey and experience, we become closer as a community, as a world.

Sole Connection offers that opportunity to share personal experiences stemming from something as simple as the shoes on your feet. Help build this archive to at least 5280 “feet” (entries) so that we can truly walk a mile in each other’s shoes.

Deadline: Ongoing.

Please submit work at http://soleconnection.tumblr.com/submit
