  • Call for Artists – New Boone

    Deadline March 18: Throughout history, art has depicted the observable, natural, scientific world, as well as the ecstatic mysteries of religion, mythology, and folklore. These two seemingly disparate means of experiencing reality have often been at odds, especially as the slow forward march of scientific progress threatens the structures of power built by religious institutions. One such intellectual and ideological struggle centers around our very beginnings: the birth of the universe, abiogenesis, and evolutionary biology versus the mythology of creation.

    The gallery at New Boone (253 N. 3rd Street) seeks artists working in any medium to submit work to be exhibited from May 6-8, 2016. Press Start will explore and contextualize the intersection of scientific theories regarding the origin of Us and creation mythologies (from any culture or religion) in contemporary art, and whether or not artists are able or willing to reconcile these schools of thought.

    To be considered, please email Maureen at odwyer.1989@gmail.com with the subject line MAY EXHIBITION SUBMISSION

    Please include the following information:

    Artist Info:
    Name
    Phone
    Email

    Artwork Info:
    High quality image/s of the work being submitted
    Medium/s
    Size/s
    Installation requirements
    A short statement about the work/s, describing how they relate to understandings of the origins and evolutions of life and the universe.
    Any outside sources that provide context to the work eg. religious texts, peer reviewed scientific papers, folklore, popular science blogs, etc. (optional)

  • Call for Artists – Percent for Art

    Deadline February 19: The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA), Wexford Science and Technology and the University City Science Center (UCSC) are proud to announce a public art opportunity to be located at a new pocket park that is planned for the corner of 37th & Market Streets in Philadelphia, PA. Artists who wish to be considered for the project are invited to submit images of recent work.

    The work of art is being commissioned to fulfill the PRA’s Percent for Art mandate, which requires that developers of projects on land acquired from or assembled by the PRA must dedicate 1% of their construction costs to commissioning original works of public art. The project is being developed by Wexford Science & Technology, a real estate investment and development company, with the University City Science Center, the nation’s first urban research park.

The pocket park will be the heart of uCity Square, the dynamic knowledge community at the University City Science Center. While the work of art must be located in the pocket park, the exact location and type of art work is specifically not defined in order to give artists the freedom to think creatively about all aspects of this project. Artists will be encouraged to think about what makes this development unique or compelling to them and use it as a starting point for thinking about the type of work that would be appropriate.

    Black women are almost three times as likely to experience death as a result of DV/IPV than White women. And while Black women only make up 8% of the population, 22% of homicides that result from DV/IPV happen to Black Women and 29% of all victimized women, making it one of the leading cause of death of Black women ages 15 to 35. Statistically, we experience sexual assault and DV/IPV at disproportionate rates and have the highest rates of intra-racial violence against us than any other group. We are also less likely to report or seek help when we are victimized.

    [The reasons Black women suffer disproportionately from abuse are complex.]

    – Feminista Jones, Why Black Women Struggle More With Domestic Violence

    This exhibition seeks to address domestic and sexual violence against women of the African Diaspora. Artists may address violence against black women and how they are effected:

    • African American women are strong (pride) – deny violence, vulnerability
    • African Americans are responsible for themselves and others around them; as African Americans we take care of ourselves – self-blame, self-sacrificing, embarrassed, ashamed if unable to control or endure situation
    • African American women are responsible for keeping family together – avoid leaving (Have to consider effect of leaving on the children. How can you stop him from seeing his children?)
    • African Americans “don’t tell their business” – deny, or avoid disclosure
    • Religious views (God will take care of it; pray; The Lord will change him)

  • Call for Artists – Montgomery College

    Deadline April 8:
    The concept of entropy is often defined as nature’s tendency to move from order to disorder. Other ideas
    associated with entropy are: a lack of predictability, change in condition or appearance and gradual decline over
    time into disintegration or dissolution. In nature, this phenomenon is seen in the slow degradation of elements
    such as stone or wood, or in a myriad of other possibilities. Time is the key to both entropy and change,
    whether in nature or in human lives.
    We invite artists to propose an individual or group exhibit that expresses or relates to these intertwined
    concepts.
    The Department of Visual and Performing Arts is calling for exhibition proposals for the Open Gallery in
    The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center that address the theme, “Time: Entropy and
    Change”. Four exhibitions will be scheduled for the 2016–2017 academic year.
    Application Process
    Eligibility: Applicants must be at least 21 years of age. Current Montgomery College students are not eligible to
    submit proposals.
    Eligible works: The Open Gallery is primarily linear wall space that can accommodate two-dimensional works up
    to 54” tall. Freestanding, pedestal, and wall hung three-dimensional works up to 75lbs. will also be considered.
    Video and digital works that can be displayed on monitors will be considered. Video projections
    are not eligible. A floor plan of the gallery is available on our web site, http://www.montgomerycollege.edu/arts-tpss/exhibitions/galleries.html.
