“State of the Art/Art of the State” Returns to the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC – Sept. 19, 2014

August 17, 2014

cameronartmuseumlogo
A simple idea, a call to artists 18 years or older who live in or are native to the state of North Carolina to bring in 1 piece of art to the Cameron Art Museum, in Wilmington, NC, within a 24-hour period of time for inclusion in the exhibition “State of the Art/Art of the State”, no jurors, no fees. They would also meet a significant, contemporary art curator.

In the spring of 2011 the call went out. And then, the day arrived, May 6, 2011. Logistics dictated that artwork would be received starting at 5pm. Artists began arriving at the front door of the museum at 10:30am appearing anxious to get in and have their work included in the exhibition. They waited, patiently, in the museum and out of the rain holding their personal artwork for hours. They waited with the other 614 artists. They talked about the piece of art they brought with them and where they traveled from. They shared stories, made new friends, listened to impromptu music playing and waited for the doors to the Hughes Wing at the Cameron Art Museum to open.

Work was received, quickly curated and hung, but by 3am exhibition staff wondered where all of the work would be placed as it appeared as though there may not have been enough wall or floor space. Accommodations were made and all 614 pieces together became a representation of the state’s artists in “State of the Art/Art of the State”.

And now, Cameron Art Museum is opening up the call again for participation in this state-wide, premier event “happening” on Friday, Sept. 19, 2014 starting at 12pm until Saturday, Sept, 20, 2014 at 12pm. Current curators for the 2014 “State of the Art/Art of the State” include, Peter Eleey: Curator at MoMA P.S.1., New York, NY. From 2007 until 2010 he was the Visual Arts Curator at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Laura Hoptman: Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, NY; and Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson: Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Colorado.

Exhibition opening will be held on Sept. 20, 2014, at 6pm at the Cameron Art Museum. Details and additional information can be found at (www.cameronartmuseum.org). To see the “State of the Art/Art of the State” from 2011 visit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nrMNMX9HlY).

CALL FOR ENTRIES
Organized by the Cameron Art Museum, this exhibition focuses on contemporary art by artists currently living in, or native to, the state of North Carolina. Artists are invited to bring a single work of art to be installed in the museum, delivering the work within a 24-hour period (between 12pm Friday, Sept. 19, 2014 and 12pm Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014). During this timeframe, a nationally renowned curator will be present to greet each artist and shake his/her hand. All participating curators will attend the exhibition opening on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 6-9pm. The design of this project provides any participating artist equal opportunity to meet a significant curator working in the field of contemporary art today and have their work seen by all visiting curators.

Upon arrival at the museum, artists must complete an exhibition entry form including contact and credit information. All work must be original. Paintings, mixed mediums, ceramics, sculpture, multimedia, original hand-made prints, photography and drawings are all examples of acceptable forms. There are some limitations and exclusions. Refer to the “State of the Art/Art of the State” web site, (www.cameronartmuseum.org) for complete details and the exhibition entry form. Space in the exhibition is not guaranteed and is on a first come, first serve basis.

HISTORY
This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, DC. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, DC, area.

Artist’s Info to Prepare for ArtFields® 2015 in Lake City, SC, from Apr. 24 – May 2, 2015

August 7, 2014

Editor’s Note: Since the official Call for Entry info has gone out, I’ve gotten a few e-mails and calls from artists who are frustrated and confused. Usually when a call for entry goes out you can enter that day. ArtFields® 2015 just announced their application time period. You can’t apply until Sept. 14, 2014 and you can apply through Nov. 14, 2014 – only then. The other problem is some artists, like me at times, are challenged when it comes to the Internet and navigating websites. So, I decided to make a post that gives the rules of the competition. This way artists can get ready to make an entry. For some artists it takes a lot of time to get ready to enter a competition and even with advance notice some never make it. The final point I want to make is please share this info with your artists friends. Sometimes artists will hide info about opportunities from their friends – I know none of you reading this would do that, but some do. Imagine that.

#1Spark! – where creativity and innovation collide – is a festival of ideas – bringing together all the creative forces of the community, especially those associated with business and the arts. The goal is to ignite creativity and innovation by connecting people and ideas. Chapman Cultural Center is seeking artists, entrepreneurs or inventors, who are looking for opportunities to interact with the public or who desire feedback from potential customers in a low-risk environment in product/service development.

Jennifer Evins, Chapman’s President/CEO, said: “Spartanburg is already known throughout the region as a vibrant arts community. We are known nationwide as a pro-business community. What better way to celebrate two of our most valuable assets than to combine them into a single concept and event? It will be a unique experience, and one that I’m sure the general public will find informative, creative, and fun”

To be a creator (entrepreneur, artist or inventor) and to have a booth to demonstrate and/or sell goods or services is a simple application process and a $30 fee. To apply, please call 864/591-5604 or e-mail to (jPickens@SpartanArts.org).

Major partners in the festival include USC Upstate’s The George (the Johnson College of Business and Economics) and the Iron Yard, the downtown business accelerator.

“We are about entrepreneurship. We’re about art. We’re about education. We’re about ideas.  What better way to encourage innovation and creativity than to bring arts and business together,” Evins said.

ArtFields® 2015 in Lake City, SC, Calls for Entries for Competition for a Share of $100,000 – Deadline is Nov. 14, 2014

August 4, 2014

artFields-colorbands-and-logo

From Apr. 24 through May 2, 2015, Lake City, SC, will be host to the third ArtFields® festival, a community-focused celebration of art awarding $100,000 in cash prizes to artists from across the Southeast.

Initially founded in 2013, ArtFields® annually transforms the historic district of Lake City into a Southern art mecca for nine days, allowing visitors, residents, and artists to experience a massive arts festival in the heart of one of South Carolina’s most charming small towns.

Artists from the 12 Southeastern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia) are invited to submit artwork for the competition and their chance at their share of $100,000 in prizes. These life-changing prizes will be awarded as a Top Prize ($50,000), a Juried Panel prize ($25,000), a People’s Choice two-dimensional ($12,500) and a People’s Choice three-dimensional ($12,500) prize during the ArtFields® 2015 Art Festival.

The Call for Submissions opens Sept. 14, 2014 at (www.artfieldssc.org) and closes Nov. 14, 2014.

Established and emerging artists may submit one 2-D or 3-D piece (painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, digital media, installation art, etc.). Artwork will be submitted online to be reviewed by a jury of visual art professionals. This jury will select 400 works of art to compete in Lake City for the prize money. Artists will be notified no later than Jan. 1, 2015 of acceptance into the ArtFields® 2015 competition.

Applicants must be 18 or older by Nov. 14, 2014, and reside in one of the 12 Southeastern states. Only original artwork is eligible for submission and must have been completed within two years of the submission deadline of Friday, Nov. 14, 2014.

For the complete list of rules and eligibility for the ArtFields® 2015 competition, please visit (www.artfieldssc.org).

For artist inquiries, please contact the Art Team at 843/374-0180 or e-mail to (ArtTeam@artfieldssc.org).

Editor’s Note: I’m including some examples from previous ArtFields® competitions that represent “one” entry so you can get an idea of what “one” can mean. There are four official cash awards but in 2014 ArtFields® awarded a second Juried Panel prize of ($25,000). Works are sold during the nine days to visitors and many intangible contacts can be made, so just making the 400 cut could be beneficial. Don’t be silly when pricing your work – it could cost you. Think outside your box. This could be a great time to do that one work you have always wanted to do but never dared to. Don’t just pick up something hanging around to enter. And finally – read the entry rules very carefully.
