Form and Function: Fiber Arts for the 21st Century

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is pleased to announce the Second Artist Member’s Exhibition in the museum’s Porcella Gallery. Creatives who are current Artist Members may apply to display one work in the exhibition Form and Function: Fiber Arts for the 21st Century.

In this exhibit, SJMQT seeks works in both traditional and new media that emphasize art over craft with bold use of artistic elements—line, space, shape, form, texture, and color— to tell an individual story. The work should focus on fiber as media through unique or novel approaches in technique, material, or subject matter. Experiment with textile manipulation, color, texture and/or diversity of materials to include a compelling mix of traditional and non-traditional works created from natural or synthetic fibers. This is an opportunity to showcase your skills and the unique qualities of thread and textiles, and to communicate meaning through mark-making and structure. Stitch, surface, construction, joinery, embellishment—fiber artists use these methods and others to bridge craft and design, invoke new artistic concepts, and alter or refresh views of fiber. Each of our Members brings a personal vision and sensibility to his or her cloth. We want to celebrate this diversity and this exhibition is intended to promote an appreciation of fiber arts in the broader community.

Curator Selection: on or before August 15, 2019
Artist Notification: on or before August 16, 2019
Grant Announcement: on or before August 16, 2019
Exhibit Opens: August 31, 2019

 

Fifteen artists will be selected for an online group exhibit, "Red 2019 " at Gallery25N; the exhibit and artists will be extensively marketed worldwide to over 32,000 people including art buyers, gallery owners, curators, collectors, etc. 

 

One artist’s work will be selected to receive the “Christopher E. Burke Fine Art Grant” of $300. That artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online marketing.

 

Theme and Selection:

“RED 2019” – The curators are looking for artwork that reflects an artist’s interpretation of a subject or theme enhanced through the use of the color red.  The extent of this application has no required parameters; the choice rests within the artist’s vision. Colors often symbolize a variety of emotions, an artist’s truth, perhaps wild fantasies---from war, power, heat, love, sexuality, anger, and joy to “soft” idealisms---these are but a few examples.   Red, in particular here, can be used to draw the viewer closer emotionally in a way which enhances their reaction to the art. It may define intuitively an intended focal point that carries the viewer more deeply into the artist’s message. 

 

Eligibility: This competition is open to all artists/photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.

Curator Selection: on or before July 25, 2019
Artist Notification: on or before July 26, 2019
Grant Announcement: on or before July 26, 2019
Exhibit Opens: July 31, 2019

 

Gallery 25N is seeking a single artist for a solo exhibit that will have extensive worldwide marketing and an art grant.  The curator for this exhibit will be Edward Burke, artist, creator and teacher. A single artist's artwork based on dreams, will be selected for this online exhibit.   

The artist  work must be accessible online for the curator’s review and selection. The selected artist must provide an artist’s statement of their work. Submissions can be of any subject and expressed style or technique from representational to abstract. 
 
The exhibiting artist will also receive a “Christopher E. Burke Fine Art Grant” of $300. That artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online marketing.

 

Theme and Selection:

Dreams are windows into what might be called a “substitute” reality that we all experience. Reflections upon our dreams can have a fleeting effect or a significance that may haunt us for a lifetime. The visual artist can offer the viewer, a connection to themselves, through their art.  The artist has this opportunity to present a dream as a hazy filtered reality from representational memories to an explosion of abstract and surrealistic imagery---all of which may be emotionally treasured as his or her own.

 

Eligibility: This competition is open to all artists/photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.

Trolls in town

 

Trolls in town

Period 29.09.2019 – 29.10.2019

 

Troll stories are part of the old Icelandic folktales and have been told for hundreds of years. Most trolls are described as greedy and cruel but some are also kind and even helpful.  The trolls often live far up in the mountains and only go their ways at night because at the rise of the sun they turn into stones. You can see their stone faces in the mountains, cliffs or rockstacks.  Ólafsfjörður is surrounded by mountains and therefore its easy to let your imagination run wild and tell stories about the trolls that live all around us.

We invite  people working in a wide range of disciplines to apply for a four week long programme at Kaffi Klara Art Residence, to give troll stories life with masks, costumes, artwork and sounds and we will feed them with real troll food. Creative minds, such as visual artists, writers, photographers, storytellers, painters, food entrepreneurs, musicians, and journalists are encouraged to apply.
