Call to Artists: HERE/NOT HERE: 6/1

Maryland’s Eastern Shore has many beautiful vistas of sandy beaches and bucolic farm land, but it is also filled with suburban sprawl, strip malls and chicken houses. The art depicting our area often captures our picturesque beaches, birds, barns, and boats but rarely do we see images of the forgotten and overlooked spaces which are equally a part of this place. HERE/NOT HERE calls on artists to capture, explore, and depict those unscrubbed and often unseen places. We are looking for artwork that tells the stories not often told about the landscape and architecture that have shaped this place we call here. The liminal spaces, the tension zones, and the hap-hazard, slap-dash, crap-laps.

Deadline to Apply: June 1, 2020.

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.

Call for Submissions: The AU Museum Project Space: Ongoing

The AU Museum Project Space, launched in Summer 2019, is dedicated to working with academics and non-traditional curators to create exhibitions addressing special topics of interest across the university and the greater Washington community. Project Space exhibitions are held three times per year and include a published e-book catalog. 

You are not restricted to art! Are you doing a research project on an unknown composer? Perhaps you want to display sheet music and play recordings. Are you an entomologist? We think insects are beautiful. Always in the library? Let’s feature some famous children’s book illustrators. We cannot wait to see what you come up with! We ask that exhibitions highlight educational themes to engage the university community.  

Applicants may suggest displaying artworks from the AU Museum collection. However, we are still in the process of inventorying works from the incoming Corcoran Legacy Collection. We will update the page with more details as soon as possible. However, we welcome all submissions. 

Looking for Inspiration? Our first Project Space exhibition, Plans to Prosper You: Reflections of Black Resistance and Resilience in Montgomery County’s Potomac River Valley was organized by graduate students in the anthropology, arts management, and art history departments. The exhibition highlighted fights against racial injustice by historically black communities in Washington, DC’s neighboring Montgomery County. Read more about Plans to Prosper You here.

If you are interested in presenting an exhibition project for consideration, please submit the following information:

  • Name of Curator/Project Manager, with contact information.

  • AU school and department faculty/staff member is associated with (if applicable). 

  • Will a class (or classes) be involved in the execution of the project? 

  • Are there departments within the University that you would particularly like to engage? 

  • One paragraph describing the concept for the exhibition.

  • 2-5 images to illustrate the project idea (optional).

We will contact you if we are interested in featuring your proposed exhibition. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Submissions from AU faculty and staff are especially welcome, but all are encouraged to apply, regardless of affiliation or geographic location.

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
