FABULON, A Center For Art and Education in Charleston, SC, Calls for Entries for “Not Your Typical Love Story” – Deadline Dec. 12, 2017

November 13, 2017

With the bells of the New Year still echoing in our ears, we will be confronted with hearts, candy, and the trappings of modern day Valentine’s Day.

Each year at this time we put out a call for our “Not Your Typical Love Story Show”. It started as a quest to battle commercialism, materialism, over consumption and narrow-minded views. We had the idea to show art that illustrated the many facets of love, a truer vision of Saint Valentine’s mission, and spread some empathy.

With so much news of injustice, incivility, instability, and insecurity, it is hard to imagine thoughts of love. Or that love could be a remedy. We thought of cancelling the show.

But that song by Hal David and Burt Bacharach keeps echoing. Maybe you remember the Jackie DeShannon version or prefer Dionne Warwick’s, or Boss Baby is your frame of reference with Missi Hale singing away.

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love

it’s the only thing there’s just too little of

no, not just for some, but for everyone”

That says it all!

And it says hold on to that thought. Make it real.

Send us images that prove that loving your neighbor like yourself could really make a difference in the world. Show that love trumps hate every time. Inspire more people to realize that they can make a difference.

The song is apparently a conversation addressing the Lord. But this is a plea to all humans of any denomination, spiritual belief, struggling person even those brave enough to question, and daring enough to lift voices and pencils and paint brushes.

The lyrics go on to say “we don’t need another mountain”….but with our environment at risk and the EPA under attack, lest we not forget that ordering up another mountain isn’t really an option. So if we love it, we need to show it!

We are seeking deep connections to the idea that love will save the world. As cliché as that may seem, prove it could be true. Dig deep. Please no cliché images. Capture examples but also show some potential solutions.

For info to enter visit (https://www.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=4861).

Please include an artist’s statement.

All mediums 2D and 3D visual arts will be considered.

Send up to five images per entry. We will choose up to three for the exhibit and sale. Artists must send a statement about their work.

All work must be for sale. The gallery receives 40% of the sale. Artist is responsible for delivery and pick up of artwork. Artwork may be brought to the gallery in person or shipped with shipping labels both ways using FedEx or USPS only (NOT UPS as they charge us a fee which will be passed along to you if this is your only available method) . No packing peanuts, please.

Artwork must be in hang ready condition with wire method only, no sawtooth hangers will be accepted. Each piece must have a label firmly affixed to the back, stating name, title, and contact information. Artwork must have been created within the last 2 years, not derived from copyrighted images, and not created under the direction of an instructor. We will accept images of work in progress, with the understanding it will be finished by the deadline.

Deadline for submission is 12/12/21/17, artists will be notified by 12/30/17. Work must arrive by 1/15/18. Work will be on display from 1/23/18 through 3/1/18. Artists’ Reception on 2/10/18 5-8pm.

FABULON is located at 1017 Wappoo Road, West Ashley, Charleston, SC, 29407

African American Fiber Artists Sought for 12th Annual Exhibition in North Charleston, SC – Deadline is Mar. 1, 2018

November 13, 2017

The City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is seeking entries from African American textile artists from across the nation for a special exhibition presented as a component of the 2018 North Charleston Arts Fest, taking place May 2-6 in North Charleston, SC. African American artists, ages 18 and up, living in the United States and working in the medium of fiber are invited to participate in the “12th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition”, titled “I’m NOT Every Woman, I’m a PHENOMENAL Woman!”. The exhibition will be on display at North Charleston City Hall from May 1-June 22, 2018. A $30 entry fee applies and allows artists to submit up to four entries.

Curated by award winning and nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah “Cookie” Washington, this unique exhibition offers African American fiber artists a showcase to display their original and innovative designs.

Artists should note that the curator will not select pieces relating to Maya Angelou as this theme was explored in the 2015 exhibition.

Following the close of the show, up to twenty works will be selected to tour the state through the South Carolina State Museum’s 2018/2019 Traveling Exhibitions Program. Sites across South Carolina may request the exhibit to tour in their facilities, thus providing additional exposure for the selected artists.
