    Deadline June 8th, 2016:

    American Paradigm Schools is an Education Management Organization and we currently manage four charter schools: Memphis Street Academy Charter School, First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School, Birney Preparatory Charter School and Tacony Academy Charter School. We believe in integrating a whole child approach to curriculum and activities so just as we celebrate academic successes, we equally celebrate artistic expressions. One way we do this is by hosting an Art Showcase open to all AP schools. This is the third year and the first year that we are including student inventions, hence why the title has changed from “APS Annual Art Showcase” to ‘APS Annual Creative Design Showcase”.

    During this event, student works will be displayed for viewing, along with featured artists and inventors. Each featured artist/inventor will host a workshop for small groups of students as well as be available for questions from students in between workshops.

    This is a volunteer run event however APS will supply lunch for all volunteers as well as a small budget for reimbursable materials for workshops. Volunteer roles can vary; we are open to artist/inventors displaying work and hosting workshops or doing one or the other, or also even just being present to engage with students about your journey.

    This year, we are looking at about 95 students in attendance with about 15 of which bringing inventions and the rest submitting art pieces. For those artist/inventors who may be interested in hosting a workshop, we can talk in detail about age and content material appropriateness.

    Event Info:
    When: Wednesday, June 8th
    Time: 10:30 – 2:00 PM
    Where: 8101 Castor Ave. APS Central Offices
    *This show is open to participating students and staff from each school as well as their families.

    If you are interested, please reach out to me individually so that we can discuss your role in this event. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you again for your interest and valued support.

    Best,
    Tracey

Investigations may explore any aspect of weather or weather systems (for example: precipitation, wind, drought, heat, cold, flooding, erosion, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.) or they may address the politics revolving around the critical issues of climate change and environmental sustainability. Artists may draw from personal experiences on any scale: local, regional, national or global.

    Artists and artist teams are invited to submit proposals for sculpture, installation, video or performance to be exhibited on the historic grounds of the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in West Rutland, Vermont. Artists are encouraged to visit the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center website for more information about the history of the grounds as a former marble quarry, www.carvingstudio.org.

    Proposals should include:
    A one-page project description, sketches, photos or other visual representations of proposed project;
    Artist’s resume;
    Up to 10 images of previous works (emphasis on site-specific);
    Artist statement (optional)

  • Call for Artists – Cher Popups

    Deadline November 20: As the wealth gap in the United States has been at the forefront of political debate, this exhibition harkens back to the last time wealth inequality was a transformational issue, the gilded age of the 1800s. The current city layout of Philadelphia still serves as a mirror to these times. Mansions continue to be glorified and highly valued in today’s society as the American Dream. The American Mansion represents a systemic practice of cultural appropriation, reliance on fiscal inequality, and the art object as home decor. Transforming the gallery space into a rendition of these iconic interiors is a way of investigating the artist’s role in this long history of patronage and the gallery’s role in the future of patronage and commodification in the arts.

    The exhibition would feature works, made of found/free/recycled materials, that transform the interior of the gallery space with the artist’s take on some of the ubiquitous mansion items (i.e. Giant chandeliers, “exotic” artifacts such as pottery/china, architectural elements such as ornate cornices, a heavy wooden library, the family portrait, the giant fireplace, a stuffed animal head, hand painted wall paper, etc.).

    We’ll be partnering with the resource exchange (http://www.theresourceexchange.org/) to help artists locate materials for free. As always, it’s free to participate and free to submit, though donations made will go toward the space which has been generously gifted to us for free.

    If you wish to sign up to submit a proposal, please begin by filling out our form here:http://goo.gl/forms/RzctR1DcuS and put the word “MANSION” in the “What kind of work do you make” section. We will then send you space schematics and more information via e-mail.
    **All forms of art will be considered**

    Questions can be sent to CHERpopups@gmail.com

  • 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.
