REO Town Call for Artists

  #
I received this from Krys Tourtois:

Call for Artists

 

The first annual REO Town Art Market will be held on the historic streets of REO Town in Lansing, Michigan.  REO Town is known for its unique atmosphere, which combines a respect for culture and history and an acceptance for new ideas.  This event will showcase a wide variety of Lansing’s artists and musicians, as well as local businesses.

 

This show is open to anyone who wishes to participate!  This is not a juried show, just an opportunity for artists and musicians to exhibit their talent.  We welcome all types of creative people, along with their friends and family.


There is a $10 entry fee and a $5 table rental fee. 

 

Artists may arrive at 10:00am on August 20th to set up their tables.  The Art Market will run from noon until 6pm.  Spaces will be approximately 8ft. wide and will run along South Washington on the sidewalks.  Spaces are first-come, first-serve on the day of the event.  Artists who have special requests for space for a tent or a different exhibit space should indicate that when registering.

 

 

·                     We are looking for a diverse array of vendors: fine art, crafts, food goods,               jewelry, clothing, musicians, etc.

·                     Demonstrations welcome!

·                     All work sold must be made by the artist selling the work.

·                     Registration deadline: August 5th, 2005

re-title

  #

I found this interesting website:

Re-title.com is a website for the active community of professionals working in contemporary art. This includes artists, artist-run project spaces and curatorial projects as well as the emerging, young and established contemporary art galleries.  It enables artists and galleries to broaden their connections in contemporary art and communicate to a larger audience.



Though registration (a personal webpage and newsletters) costs about $50/year (!), it's a good way of checkiing out what other artists are doing across the globe, however limited it is so far (currently only a handful of South Africans are listed for the entire continent of Africa).

Dispatx :: Call for Submissions

  #

Dispatx Art Collective
is calling for collaborative project proposals and submissions based on the current theme for exploration : Abandonment

We see this theme as tremendously rich in connotations both positive and negative, and are looking for collaborators to consider working with us as a part of our 'Work in Progress' area - demonstrating the process that translates creative vision into artistic output - as well as submissions of finished work aligned to the theme.

For more information, submission guidelines and schedule details, please visit www.dispatx.com

Dispatx Art Collective :: Scar as Sign

  #




Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our third edition - Scar as Sign. The works making up this issue explore the theme in a diverse manner, confronting concepts from personal experience and showing their significance in a much broader sense.

Our bodies, relationships and environments are defined by information built up over time, as if there were an implicit will governing what should be preserved. Through dislocations in the storage process, wounds can be generated, and attempts to erase these wounds from our memories give rise to scarring. In their turn, lasting scars are then converted into objects of great significance. To talk of these significations is to talk not only of the object itself but also of all that it signifies. Human memory is thus made up of a tension between defects and the processes undertaken to hide them.

The edition is made up of 13 works in various media including photography, sculpture, sound and poetry. It is the result of 4 months' collaborative development of the theme by 17 different artists, and can be seen at www.dispatx.com

Synapse.net
is an Australian web-based organization that promotes the interface between science and art:


go back to gallery
The Synapse database is an online resource promoting the nexus of art and science.


Synapse encourages creative and experimental collaborations between artists and scientists. It has been developed by ANAT (Australian Network for Art and Technology) as a major component of the Australia Council's New Media Arts Board Synapse Art and Science Initiative.

The database can be searched by artist, project or science organisation. It contains information on exhibitions, collaborative projects and areas of science interest and includes a showcase of artworks in the online gallery.

The Synapse database is a resource for artists, scientists, researchers, curators and industry to develop innovative and dynamic collaborations and connections.



Feedback is welcome and we invite submissions from Australian artists, scientists and organisations to be included in the database.

Ryan Steadman

I'm strangely drawn to Ryan Steadman's style:

sharing a square

"Ryan Steadman uses the stark backdrops of sharp-edged urban buildings to isolate the small-scale human dramas of the quotidian. Steadman's background apartment towers are flat and modernist, looming large behind the tiny expressionist figures that people his scenes." [via Art MoCo]
