Noir - B&W Photography Exhibit

The Pacific Art League is pleased to announce our monthly juried show in April, “Noir” dedicated to the power of black and white photographic images. This show is our second annual photography show, which reflects the greater emphasis PAL is placing on the photographic arts, through increased classes and workshops, taught by masters of the craft.


“Noir”, a show of exclusively black and white images celebrates the purest and original form of the medium. With the ubiquity of images taken on smart phones, we also want to celebrate those thoughtful, well-crafted images that reject the “snap” approach to photography and show the full range and power of the lens. We encourage you to submit your most arresting black and white image, from medium format, DSLR, film, or iPhone, sharing with us your vision of the world, through the shutter.

“Abstract” International Call - Art & Literature Journal - Deadline April 30, 2019

| Theme:

Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art which evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Reveal your most ABSTRACT thoughts.


| Eligible Submissions:

Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, photos of performance art, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words). Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Apply using the online form.


| Highlights:

Publication in a brilliant art magazine and online 2-year exhibition. Four top applicants will receive a feature section with a profile written about them. Up to 40 applicants will be selected for the full exhibition, all to be showcased in the magazine and the juried online exhibition.

Putting It Together 2: The Art of Assembling/Call for Entry

Assemblage and collage involve the thoughtful combination of elements to create something new and original. Each process differs significantly when materials are chosen, collected, and combined with one another, however, the mentality of both techniques is to synthesize materials to produce a cohesive result. “Putting It Together 2: The Art of Assembling” will showcase assemblage and collage pieces alongside one another, combining both practices into an assembled collection of 2D and 3D artwork.

Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces of artwork. Entries must be submitted by April 8, 2019. “Putting It Together 2: The Art of Assembling” will open with a reception on Friday, May 31, 2019, from 5:30-8 pm in the main gallery. The exhibition will be on display from May 31, 2019 to July 19, 2019. Three prizes will be awarded at the Opening Reception: two Juror’s Choice Awards of $200, and a Going Solo Award that offers the recipient a solo exhibition in one of our galleries.

Mixed media Artist and Associate Professor of Art and Art History at St. Louis University, Deborah Douglas, will serve as juror for this exhibition. For more information about Deborah Douglas and  “Putting It Together 2: The Art of Assembling”, visit

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE- Minute vidéo Folie/Culture

Folie/Culture invites all professional and non-professional artists, organization members, friends, and social workers to engage in a unique experience of reflection by creating a one-minute video on the theme Walk on Eggshells!


Walk on Eggshells! is an untenable injunction: ultimately, it demands total immobility. Folie/Culture has decided to explore the new censorship being fostered by a humanity that fears itself. An investigation into why we willingly agree to chaff against coarse surfaces, smile wanly at confrontation, issue condemnations a prioriand banish humanity’s less fathomable aspects even further into the shadows. 


Walk on Eggshells! is a prohibition against existence for those whose task it is to shape, by feel, the elusive beast of human becoming. Creation is thus denied to creators, and healing denied to the sick. This forced march keeps us in line, abolishing the possibility of becoming-other. Just imagine the impact on those who must navigate the torments of unstable mental health. 

When absurdity has swallowed up common sense, it is time to deploy irony, humour and derision. Folie/Culture invites artists to break sacred eggs to make the most palate-shocking of omelettes.


The Minutes Vidéo submissions selected will be screened at a public event as part of our 2019–2020 programming. For more information about the theme, visit our website at,20-21_EV.pdf


There are two ways you can participate:


OPTION A: Submit a story, documentary or art video

Open Call 2019: POLDRA - Public Sculpture Project Viseu

Deadline: 7th April 2019

Viseu - Portugal


POLDRA - Public Sculpture Project Viseu invites all artists to present proposals for the Open Call. The focus of POLDRA is a public sculpture (or public sculpture related proposals/concepts) site-specific to Mata do Fontelo (Viseu, Portugal).


This initiative, that started in 2018 with the works of Cristina Ataíde (PT), Neeraj Bhatia (CAN) and Pedro Pires (AGO), envisions to create a public sculpture route at Mata do Fontelo, thus re-interpreting and re-inventing the century-old site in order to better promote connections between the public and contemporary artistic proposals.


Among other conditions (lodging, studio space and on-site technical assistance), the selected proposal will benefit from a potential global burse of 3000€.
