International Open Call to Artists: The Brain / Human Mind

blogbrainXrayartScience Inspires Art–The Brain International Open Call!

This call makes some interesting associations between Artists working with perception, memory, and emotion to create new works and new collaborations between scientists and artists using abstract thinking, imagination, and visual perception.  Recently, a young neuroscientist enamored with the beauty of the brain’s neurons and synapses became a painter!

A new openness from scientists with their research findings and a new desire to engage with the public has created recent art+neuroscience activities, including: the new scientific field of Neuroaesthetics; The Beautiful Brain: Art and Science of the Human Mind online forum; The Interalia Magazine dedicated to the interactions between the arts, sciences, and consciousness; Neuroscience Art exhibitions mounted at The Society of Neuroscience annual meetings; and a 2014 production of a planetarium journey, the NEURODOME, that uses the data visualization tools of astronomy to depict high-resolution imagery of the brain.

With this call for artists to submit work for the exhibition, SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: The Brain, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI) and the New York Hall of Science want to display the aesthetic results of human curiosity about the brain (human or other) and seek stunning, two-dimensional images of original art (executed in any visual media), inspired or informed by any aspect of the brain or new discoveries in neuroscience.

Instructables Creative Use of House Paint Contest

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 7.45.36 AM


It’s the slowest part of the slowest summer month so we’re posting this for fun and prizes! Ever since Jackson Pollock began dribbling and dripping house paint across his canvases, and perhaps even before, artists have used commercial house paint products in innovative ways. So when I read that Instructables had paired up with the Olympic paint company to offer a contest with prizes, I knew right away that there must be an artist out there to win this contest.

Voices: An Artist’s Perspective Seeks Art in All Media


Hi Artists! Here is another great call for art that is in conjunction with Hope you are having a great summer and I look forward to another impactful and meaningful exhibition by women artists!  Best, Karen

Voices: An Artist’s Perspective

Voice, by definition, includes a larger sense of expression than just the utterance of sound; it also signifies meaning and intention in artistic pursuits.  “Voices: An Artists Perspective” seeks art in all media with works portraying a unique, individual voice and style to tell stories, whether the voice is as soft as a whisper or a loud, primal scream that will engage the viewer.

Feminism advocates for freedom from restrictive sex roles and the inclusion of all voices in its push for gender equality and the fight for social, cultural, economic and political rights. This call for art seeks to include broad concepts of imagery using a woman’s voice as the visual narrative. Expressing your voice through art to tell your story is a means to reveal mind and spirit whether with symbolic bold energy or subtle poetic expression. Share your voice, your story, your art.

As a national non-partisan grassroots organization, our mission is to end inequality for women that stems from prejudice and discrimination and to defend and advance the human and civil rights of women and girls. Manifesto:


In January of 1889, five innovative women, Grace Fitz-Randolph, Edith Mitchell Prellwitz, Adele Frances Bedell, Anita C. Ashley, and Elizabeth S. Cheever, barred from full participation in the male-dominated National Academy of Design and The Society of American Artists, founded the Women’s Art Club. The organization flourished and in 1913 was renamed the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, reflecting its national influence and the increasing number of women sculptors. Through the 1920’s the organization was sponsoring exhibitions nationally and abroad. In the 1930s membership grew to over 1,000 and the organization opened its Argent Galleries on 57th Street in New York City. In 1941, the organization changed its name again to the National Association of Women Artists.

Early exhibitions included works by the notable artists Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon and Cecelia Beaux.  Later, membership rosters included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Anna Hyatt Huntington, Louise Nevelson, Cleo Hartwig, Malvina Hoffman, Minna Citron, Alice Neel, Theresa Bernstein, Nell Blaine, and Dorothy Dehner.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the National Association of Women Artists (N.A.W.A.) is to foster public awareness of, and interest in, visual art created by women in the United States. The Association promotes culture and education in the visual arts through exhibitions of its members’ works, educational programs, scholarships, awards, its historical archive, and other appropriate means.

While encouraging contemporary and emerging artists, the Association honors and continues the long and important contribution of women to the history of American culture and art.

Through N.A.W.A.’s exhibitions, programs, events, education programs and archive, the Association fosters awareness of the monumental contribution of women to the history of American culture and art. The organization is inclusive and serves professional women visual artists of all backgrounds and traditions that are at least 18 years of age and U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents.

Call for Contributions of Articles w/ Art Images For ArtWorld Community Magazine


by Keith McFarlane, Editor, Artworld Community Magazine!

Artworld is pleased to announce the birth of our Community Magazine. The magazine is open to artists, art-marketeers, art-lovers, gallerists, critics, academics, and public institutions. Articles are invited on any topic related to contemporary art. Artworld is very much a broad church, and, besides fine art, we welcome sculpture, illustration, photography, artisanal crafts, wood carving, metal-working, textiles, mixed and digital media–anything in short that can be represented by an image and that exhibits exceptional quality and skill.

We aim to showcase the range and quality of contemporary art, whatever the medium, style, or school. It’s an extraordinary success story that we aim to celebrate! Contrast this with the so often negative image of the auction house and “the shock of the new”. The magazine represents, we believe, a chance for emerging and talented artists to gain a sympathetic audience and, in time perhaps, a wider recognition.



blogArtWorldimageA high standard is expected: curation and an editorial voice being essential to any serious magazine. The following criteria, interpreted broadly, will apply to everything that is published.

1. The articles should interest a wide audience, be well founded, critically aware and well written, written that is in English and polished to a literary standard.

2. The articles should be supportive in tone, supportive, that is, of the arts and artists–particularly those deserving of wider recognition.

3. Critical articles are acceptable, indeed they are welcome as a vehicle for encouraging correspondence and debate. Critical work should expect to justify itself with evidence, not with rhetoric, and should address individuals,

movements or institutions well able to mount a defence. Such essays should never be vitriolic, never argue ad hominem. Neither should they shout, nor whisper, to undermine or to attack.

4. The subject of articles is open, and the literary forms various, including but not limited to letters, announcements, essays, philosophical or genre pieces, and, not least, the literary appreciation. By appreciation, is intended a short

essay illustrating, interpreting and yes praising the best work from emerging and undervalued artists.

5. Articles should be succinct, perhaps 500 to 1,000 words. Illustrations should be limited to one, two or three. Much can be included via hyperlinks, the artist’s web-site, social media, perhaps a video. Longer articles will be

accepted (or not) weighing their length against their merit.

6. Articles should be thoughtful and thought-provoking. The magazine is not a conveyor belt of images to be liked, or not: ephemera, mere fodder, for the social media. Artworld aims to build a serious community, seriously

committed to contemporary artists and to their art. We are, moreover, strongly supportive of good writing, and the maintenance of a critical discipline almost as important to art and to literature as the artists themselves.


The magazine will launch with two editors, one a poet, the other an artist. These are Keith McFarlane, the originator of Artworld and maker of the Artworld app, and Marie

Kazalia, well-known as an artist and proprietor of the respected web resource, Artists Marketing Resources. Contact Marie Kazalia via email:  and send Keith McFarlane a message via his ArtWorld app Facebook page.



Wall Space Gallery, Canada only accepts submissions sent by e-mail. Although gallery curators will not view artist’s work during gallery hours they do extend the invitation to artists to drop by to become acquainted with the gallery and what they are all about. Wall Space Gallery has two locations–Wall Space Gallery in Westboro Village, 358 Richmond Road, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada andWall Space Gallery,  Orleans, 2316 St. Joseph Blvd , Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
