  • CALL FOR ARTISTS PROPOSALS

    Entry Deadline: October 17, 2016

    CONCEPT:
    The Wissahickon Boys & Girls Club is a hub of activity for the surrounding neighborhood, serving youth in its programs, and fostering long-term investment from Alumni of all ages, parents, and staff. Historically, this Club was groundbreaking as the first Boys & Girls Club to serve African American youth and first to be led by an African American Director. Building off of this incredible legacy and their continued role in the community, this mural project seeks to portray African American leaders, including inspiring inventors from STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), prominent Wissahickon Boys & Girls Club Alumni, and the founders of The Links service organization. The mural will serve as inspiration in its final imagery, and provide opportunities for Club youth to research African American inventors and community leaders and participate in key moments throughout the process.

    SITE:
    The mural will be located on the exterior of the Wissahickon Boys & Girls Club located at 328 W Coulter St on a Northwest-facing wall adjacent to Morris Street and viewed from W Coulter St. The wall is 30’4” x 24’ (730 sq. ft.)

    PROCESS AND EXPECTATIONS:
    The mural will be painted directly on the wall in Spring of 2017. Throughout the project development, the artist is expected to attend community meetings to present their design vision. Additionally, the artist is expected to conduct two paint days with select older youth participants and members of The Links service organization. Artists submitting proposals must have a firm grasp of mural making skills and diplomacy in their collaboration with community members. The Mural Arts Program has years of expertise and will work closely with the artist throughout the process. The Mural Arts Program will be responsible for maintaining the mural after its completion which is expected to have a lifespan of at least 10 years.

  • Call for Entries

    Entry Deadline: Thursday, October 20, 2016

    Off the Wall Gallery’s 12th Annual Juried Exhibition, UNDER $100 seeks outstanding artwork across all possible media that is priced at $95 or less. (Let’s try to avoid $99.99!) That’s right: instead of the complex themes we often suggest for juried exhibitions, we’re aiming for a show featuring high-quality art that is highly affordable—just in time for the holidays! By “all possible media,” we mean anything at all, encompassing 2D, 3D and multimedia. This includes paintings, drawings and photographs; work in textile and assemblage; sculpture of all kinds; work sourced from fine art materials and found objects; and digital creations, too. By asking for “outstanding artwork,” we hope to inspire you to showcase your talents and strong suits with entries of the first order. The jury will accept artists based on the quality of the work as presented electronically and a brief, two-sentence statement to the jury.

    A completed entry, including digital images, a list of titles, media, framed sizes and prices, as well as a two-sentence statement to the jury speaking to your artwork, must be received on disc or flash drive by 12 midnight at Dirty Frank’s with sufficient cash payment for all entries ($5 per work).

     2D work when framed must be no larger than 48 inches in combined dimensions, while 3D work must fit easily in our case. You must supply images on disc or flash drive, together with framed titles, framed dimensions, media, prices, a statement and an entry fee of $5 per work. No entries of actual work will be accepted.

    The following criteria apply to all submissions: Size your images properly. Please do your best to limit each file to one megabyte or less. Optimally, you should should submit JPGs that are 1000 pixels on the longest dimension. Title your images clearly, with names that make sense and correspond to actual titles. Include all the information we need (so we don’t have to return to you with questions!)—titles, framed dimensions, media, prices and a statement speaking to your work. Please note that we retain all files, on the assumption that the disc or flash drive on which the digital images have been submitted is not unique in any way and does not need to be returned.

    The artist agrees that all work exhibited is for sale. Prices must be clearly stated and cannot change after acceptance. We will encourage sales and retain a 30-percent commission on all work sold.

    Send or drop off entries and cash payment to:

  • Call for Entries – Center for Fine Art Photography

    Deadline December 30: International Juried Exhibition : Theme: Faux

    Fake wood, plastic surgery and imitation cheese, the world around us is staged with facades. We are surrounded by stand in’s for the original, fabricated neighborhoods with identical houses and plastic rocks. Knock off designer goods and mass production meet our consumer demand and people find real comfort in artificial companionship. It is becoming rare to find a genuine person place or thing and the word authentic has been used so often, it no longer means anything. All artist interpretations on this theme are encouraged. All photographic processes are welcome.

    JUROR | Louise Clements

    Louise Clements is Artistic Director of QUAD, a centre for contemporary art, film and new technologies in Derby UK, since 2001, and Artistic Director of FORMAT International Photography Festival since 2004. An independent curator since 1998, she has initiated commissions, publications, mass participation, art, film and photography exhibitions. She is a juror, portfolio reviewer, workshop leader, speaker and award nominator throughout Europe, America and Asia.
