Secret Life of Colors at Carter Burden Gallery, New York City

‘Kiss of the Spider Woman’ one of 15 paintings Blossom Verlinsky will be showing at Carter Burden Gallery

 

Artist Blossom Verlinsky invites you to the opening of Secret Life of Colors, an exhibition at Carter Burden Gallery, 548 W 28 St, New York City, on June 30th 6-8pm.

Blossom Verlinsky’s Artist’s Statement

Secret Life of Colors

All that I have experienced, dreamt and digested has been synthesized through color and is the subject of my paintings. My interest in the natural world and geology has a profound effect on my art. My love of Asian Art, Medieval Illumination, Bonnard, Klimt, Matisse and Picasso have also found their way into my art. In addition, I have been deeply inspired by my studies with Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, Kurt Seligmann, Burgoyne Diller, Alfred Russell and Jimmy Ernst and other giants of Abstract Art and continue the traditions of their teachings.

I begin a painting using a large brush, quickly and spontaneously putting down large strokes. I then place layer upon layer of paint. This glazing produces a magical effect…a richness and depth of color. I experiment with a variety of mixed colors and emphasize these colors purposely, using decoration and pattern to create a beautiful painting. The glint of sunlight on the threads of a spider’s web or edge of a plane are accented with gold paint using tiny brushes. I then fold the linen I paint on. Further emphasizing a sense of memory and recollection. Deeply personal myths emerge from my subconscious as I continue to explore my relationship with my inner self.

June Design Challenge: new call to artists, textile designers, and painters

frontrow

The Front Row Society has a new call to artists, textile designers, and painters to take part in their June design challenge.

They’re interested in Primitive Flowers and all the beautiful paintings the expressionists created in the beginning of the 20th century, visual and lyrical abstraction, distorted imagery, and vivid colors and shapes. Art based on experiences and emotions rather than physical reality. Work that seeks to express perceptions of nature rather than exact representations. They are looking for a naïve approaches using bold lines, clear layers, impasto, wild brush work, simplification and abstraction that transcends representational and realistic aesthetics.

 

As their new website is under development, at this time they are taking submissions via email. Please send an email to design@frontrowsociety.com to receive the submission package.,

Submissions end 29/06/16

#Artists Looking For A Lower Cost Print-On-Demand Option For Your Self-Published Art Books?

Screenshot 2016-06-11 at 7.43.41 AM

 

Artists, photographers, writers and creative people working in every genre have been self-publishing print books of their work for a very long time. For several years now, many artists have used the print-on-demand services of such sites as Blurb, Lulu, and others.

Lately, there is another option gaining attention. I recently learned from the fine art photography community that many who option to self-publish a collection of their work in printed book form are now opting to use Docu-copies as a new low-cost option.

CHROMA: Artist CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS for Summer Exhibition

Screenshot 2016-06-06 at 3.04.52 PM
The people at The Crypt Gallery, London sent us this Call to Artists and asked us to share it with our readers.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS for CHROMA: Summer Exhibition

CHROMA is a curation of visual thought and exists both as space and document. It acts as a platform for elaboration and articulation, exploring the narrative potential of aesthetic and visual arrangement. The published and exhibited results are amalgamations of open submissions.

CHROMA produces experiments in chromatic language

monoCHROMA: Black & White Issue

CHROMA opens the call for the submission of art work in any medium in response to the words black & white.

Exhibition

A group show will be held in July presenting a selection of submissions curated by CHROMA. A collection of works made in isolation from one another with a colour being the only given commonality, the show will explore the conversations the works can and are forced to have through their curation and what elements of association are generated to form a narrative or dialogue. The show will experiment with the possibilities of language as a response to something inherently visual, and the relationship between this collective chromatic discourse and each individual work.

Publication

Submissions will also be considered for the creation of CHROMA’s Black & White Issue publication. This will present the same conceptual exploration as the exhibition but will take a concrete ob-ject-form, culminating individual works into a single art object.

Submission deadline: Monday 20th June at 12pm

Email a maximum of three photographs of each piece submitted, or a detailed (1 side of A4) proposal if the work is not yet made. Please include any titles, dimensions and materials.

If selected, works must be dropped off at the gallery location (The Crypt Gallery, St Pancras) at 10am on Tuesday 26th July. Instructions should be provided and the work will be hung by the team. Arrangements can be made for artists to help hang should they have specific technical requirements. Please note artists submitting video work will need to provide equipment such as projectors and/or tvs/extension cables.

Artists should also be available to collect work from the space Monday 1st August at 11am.

CHROMA will never charge submission fees however to cover the cost of the space artists selected will be required to pay an exhibiting fee from the following sliding scale:

SMALL: An exhibiting space of approximately 50cm x 50cm – £20

MEDIUM: Approximately between 50cm x 50cm – 150cm x 150cm – £35

LARGE: Approximately over 150cm x 150cm – £50

If you wish to submit multiple pieces of work, please clearly state this in your submission. If we se-lect more than one piece of work, we will take the total collective size into account for pricing (i.e. a submission of three small pieces would be costed at the price of a ‘Large’ work – £50, rather than 3 x ‘Small’ – £60). If you are submitting multiple works but only wish to exhibit one piece, please state this clearly and we will select a singular piece, charging you the price according to its individual size.

Exhibition Information:

Private View: Thursday 28th July 6-9pm

Friday 29th – Sunday 31st July 12-7pm

The Crypt Gallery, Euston Road, London, NW1 2BA

Random Orange International Artist Open Call for Submissions

Image by: Ice Tuxedo ‘random orange’ Open Call

Image by: Ice Tuxedo ‘random orange’ Open Call

Organised by Ice Tuxedo

Deadline for applications: Friday 8th July, 2016, Time: 6 pm

Random Orange is an International Open Call exhibition organised by Ice Tuxedo.  Artists are asked to apply with work that respond to an extract taken from ‘The Science in Science Fiction’ ed. Peter Nicholls, 1982, p. 91.

_____________________________

EXTRACT:

‘There are various intriguing science fiction notions concerning time that can only call upon very distant support from science.  A notable example is A.E. van Vogt’s novel The Weapon Shops of Isher, in which a man throws alternately, as if on a seesaw, increasingly distant past and futures, accumulates so much energy (for surely time travel requires energy) that when he finally explodes in the distant past, it is the intensity of this release of energy that catalyzes the creation of the Sun and the planets.  This is one of the ultimate time paradoxes.  More soberly, Ian Watson’s story “The Very Slow Time Machine’ tells of a future time traveller in a machine which, before it is projected even further into the future, must (like a catapult) first be very slowly pulled back into the past.  To battled present-day observers he seems to be experiencing normal duration, but in reverse.  There is a remote sense in which physics supports the relationship between time and energy that these stories rather vaguely suggest.  The initial energy of the Big Bang that gave birth to our universe is thought to be directly connected to the nature of time in the universe. We do not know exactly how much energy this was, but we do know that the greater the initial energy, the longer time itself will last before the universe reaches its hear-death or collapses back into a monobloc.’

Key dates:
Deadline for applications: Time: 18.00 pm, Friday 8th July, 2016
Selected artists announced on Schwartz Gallery website:
Private view: Thursday 28th July, 6 – 8.30 p.m
Exhibition dates: 28/07/16 – 27/08/2016
Public opening hours: Saturdays only: 11am – 5pm
Thursday & Friday: Viewing by appointment only between 11am and 5pm

Fees:
Application and processing fee: £20 (via paypal: see website) per application of up to three artworks per artist.  The fee is non-refundable. Please include your PayPal Payment Reference Number when completing the ‘random orange’ application form.
