Note: Galleries and arts organizations regularly email their calls to Artist Marketing Resources. We don’t post everything we receive. Primarily, out of consideration for artists, we share opportunities with no submission fees. *********

Eyedrum Art Gallery is currently seeking a wide range of examples of “Glitch Art” to display in an upcoming exhibition to be called, Behind the Static, which will take a deeper look at the origins and future of Glitch within the context of art making, in which artists are manipulating materials to create and/or exploit glitches, capturing and documenting accidents and bugs in the system, or ghosts in the machine.

Consideration will be given to physical objects such as imperfect 3D printed objects, digital prints, drawings, paintings, sculpture, photo, text, textiles, installation, sound, and interactive pieces based on the concept of glitch. Digital-only works will also be accepted and will be displayed using projectors, monitors, etc.

In addition to visual art, Eyedrum is seeking proposals for demos, workshops, discussions, and performances that reference glitch.

To submit, please send up t o 5 numbered images and/or links, title list with medium numbered to correspond with images, artist website (if available), and current CV to glitch.eyedrum@gmail.com by Midnight EST Aug 1, 2015.

Artists will be responsible for any shipping/transportation costs for all non-digital accepted submissions but special consideration will be given where possible.

Behind the Static opens October 24, 2015 at Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery, 88 Forsyth St SE, Atlanta, GA 30303 and will run through the end of 2015. Eyedrum.org

Last week, we published an article containing resources for getting your small Giclee art print editions and 3D printed items ready for holiday sales. Read our article Get Your Art Printed as Mini Giclee Prints or 3D Prints for Holiday Sales here.

Related to that preparation process are the  Three C’s : Clarity, Communication, Cost, discussed in the recent article published on the Shapeways blog of 3D News and Innovations. Their article contains practical advice on getting the most for your money when creating your 3D design for printing.

According to Shapeways, your ideas, sketches, photos, your Pinterest boards, magazine clippings and screenshots of elements you like are all really helpful in communicating what you want to the printer. (Another plus for using Pinterest!)

Cost, plus an understanding of the 3D printing process as it relates to your design, go hand-in-hand for creating the best work.  How much you are willing to spend will be effected by whether you provide the printer with a finished product or a 3D file that you will upload yourself, what materials you want your 3D printed item created with, and if you are creating an edition or a One-of-a-Kind art piece.
