Call to artists: ENVIRONMENTAL: An International Call for Works: 11/21

Environmental awareness has crept, like a dam springing a leak, for over a century now. It appears that we wallow from the depths of personal denial to the heights of generational concern, new selflessness, and a bright clarity regarding the situation at hand. Such a paradox to realize that in order to live we need to destroy the only thing that could sustain us. Are humans truly a virus, insane to the point of repeating the same mistakes over and over expecting a different result? How can our art and design play a role in illuminating the bigger picture, galvanizing resolve, or illustrating the task or questions at hand?

What does our culture have to say about our world moving into the Anthropocene?

Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view when interpreting the theme. This can include works that reflect how the concept pertains to people, ideas, animals, cultures, current political and social discourses, science, or even in the broader sense of Environment from a conceptual, imaginary, or theoretical point of view.

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.


 

Deadline: November 21st, 2019

Call for Entries: King Street Gallery in the Cafritz Arts Center: 11/24

The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center has a number of spaces available for mounting exhibitions that support the academic mission of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. This open call is for our King Street Gallery, the largest exhibition space in the Cafritz Arts Center. This light-filled, 1,050-square-foot gallery is in the main atrium of the building. Its prominent location, open design, and extremely high ceilings (30+ feet) make it a great venue for major exhibitions. While much of this gallery space is visible from the main lobby of the building, and through the windows that front onto the street, it does maintain gallery hours and is locked after hours. The gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Exhibitions are generally scheduled a year in advance to complement the academic calendar. Exhibitions in the King Street Gallery are 4-5 weeks long, and emphasize two person or small group shows. Single artist applications may be paired with a complimentary artist or artists to better utilize the space. Curated proposals are encouraged.

Nobrow is well-known for our visual publishing and our dedication to designing and producing beautiful books. This is something we are extremely proud of. At the heart of all we do is storytelling.

It is all aimed at transporting a reader to another place and time and keeping them there; transfixed. 

That is why we are delighted to announce we are running the Nobrow Short Story Competition for writers! Up to twelve winning entries will be published in our short story anthology, and this beautifully illustrated book will celebrate the best short fiction and non-fiction writing. 

Our theme is ‘The Censor’. You can interpret this in any way you wish – it could represent censoring of the past, present and future; the self; the state; or the effects of censorship on everyday life. As a provocation we hope our theme can provide a rich vein of storytelling inspiration for anyone wishing to take part in the competition. We are looking for inclusive, surprising, ingenious and diverse responses that capture our minds and hold us until every word is devoured.

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.
