Call for Entries: SEASON 16 - 2019/2020: 6/1

Call for Entries: SEASON 16 - 2019/2020: 6/1

Deadline for Proposals: June 1, 2019.

Exhibition Season begins late September. Selection of artists is made and season lineup planned (including solo dates) by end of July. Each solo exhibit will then be curated in conversation with the artist within several weeks of their assigned exhibition dates.

On average, one-third of Manifest's exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City, San Francisco, Canada, and Hong Kong. It is important to our non-profit mission that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects. The group shows provide the diversity of approach, media, style, and geographic origin, while the solo exhibits provide a deeper insight into an artist's vision.

Over 300 artists exhibit (through group and solo shows combined) and over 4000 patrons visit the gallery each year; thousands of artists submit works to thematic projects produced at the gallery. Our exhibits are routinely reviewed in local and sometimes national news and art publications (including Sculpture Magazine, Drawing Magazine, and Art Papers among others). And while our focus is on providing a museum-like experience of visual art, patrons and collectors, including museums, watch Manifest and our publications for future acquisitions and exhibitors. We believe this makes the spots in our schedule reserved for solo or proposed exhibits highly valuable.

Manifest is happy to receive proposals of various types and accepts these on an ongoing basis starting usually in late winter, reviewing them starting in early June in consideration for the upcoming exhibit season. No notifications are made until the final season schedule is decided (usually by the end of July), but updates are sent to all artists at the start of our committee's review process.

Our organization is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit and as such operates on a very lean budget with the support of hard-earned grants as well as individual donations to our Annual Fund and in-kind professional services. As such, all submissions to gallery calls and proposals for exhibits include nominal entry/application fees. These are either at or below the national norm for such fees, and we work very hard to maximize all our resources to make the benefits of submission to and participation in our exhibits more valuable than most gallery experiences. The fact that Manifest's non-profit operations are supported in part by entry fees does not mean that Manifest is a vanity gallery. With a mission to stand for quality in the visual arts, and to serve as a bridge between the community and the highest forms of visual expression, we set our own bar high and generally exceed the expectations of both the exhibiting artists and our patrons with what we do.

Types of proposals: click here for details.

Submission fee: $50.

Deadline: June 1, 2019.

About Mills Pond Gallery: Incorporated in 1972, Smithtown Township Arts Council (STAC) offers a unique combination of historical preservation, cultural promotion, and arts exhibition. The Council has been committed to the arts in Suffolk County for forty-six years, working to provide a creative outlet and the opportunity to experience, investigate, and discover contemporary art and cultural issues which are engaging and relevant to the public's daily lives and civic responsibilities. We believe the arts are indispensable in building good character in the citizens of our communities as they foster communication, offer new insights on the world, and add to the greater appreciation of both life and society. Since 1978, the council has made its home in the historic Mills Pond House. Occupied by the prosperous Mills family (early settlers of the Town of Smithtown) until 1976, this area is a rare survival of an agricultural hamlet once common on Long Island. William Wickham Mills (a man of wealth and social prominence) inherited the family land and began to construct the Mills Pond House in 1838. This Greek Revival style home is the earliest documented architect-designed house in the area

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 to Artists: Exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center: Ongoing

The Exhibitions department is responsible for the programming of the Morean’s galleries. The Morean’s exhibitions serve as a portal through which members of our community are introduced to contemporary art that is socially and culturally relevant, accessible, dynamic, and educational and at times challenging and provoking. Our department arranges exhibitions of work in all media by a broad spectrum of artists, including those who are emerging, mid-career, and established, as well as work by children.

We put on over 30 exhibitions each year, with each exhibition running from 4 to 7 weeks.

The Morean Arts Center is not only interested in the meaning of contemporary art, but also in educating our visitors on how art is made. 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
