    Deadline June 24:

    The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center invites artists to submit proposals for SculptFest 2016, September 10 – October 23. The theme for this year’s outdoor exhibition is “Forecast Now,” guest curated by artist Taylor Apostol.

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);

With my selections, I will try to showcase outstanding artists and create a resonant grouping of work representing the stimulating and versatile field of contemporary ceramics.

Erin will demonstrate techniques for slip trailing, direct image transfer, inlay, sgraffito, and stamping, all while using underglaze to create layered and colorful surfaces. Attendees will have time each day to try out the methods that Erin demonstrates.

  • 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.
