Call for Submissions: Photographic Still Life Bodies of Work

 

Touch.My.Prints seeks projects, finished or in-progress, of photographic still lifes.

Touch My Prints is interested in the special way the photographic process can flatten space.

In the process of a studio still life the artist can have complete control over lighting, objects, composition, etc. This control allows for a constructed environment to showcase a wide range of concepts.

Bodies of work will be prioritized over a series of individual images.

Update: the Worlds First Art Mall

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 8.45.02 AM

On November 25th 2012, I published news of the K11 Art Space, the Worlds First Art Mall, which is located in the Tsim Sha Tsui district of the city of Hong Kong.

The K11 Art Space Art Mall has grown considerably since I first wrote about it here! Like many visitors to Hong Kong, I quickly found myself in the Tsim Sha Tsui district shortly after arrival, on direct route from the airport, in search of an affordable room and the best places to shop. The Tsim Sha Tsui district has a lovely night view of the waterfront and city skyline, a public fine arts library, and a new fine arts museum under construction.

  • K11 Art Space now publishes the free Artoid art magazine.
  • K11 Art Space is showcasing the Photography Exhibition – Scenes of the City, on view from the 6th of January to the 3rd of February 2015. Photographs by expatriate Hong Kong resident from The Philippines, Xyza Cruz Bacani. Her work has been featured in The New York Times and Vogue.

K11 Art Space Art Mall exhibits, promotes and sells local artists and artists based internationally in live exhibitions, online, and in their K11 Design Store. K11 Design Store features budding and exceptional designers from all over the world every season. In the past they have feature design works by an American living as an expatriate in Thailand and other artist-designers living in France and Italy.

A few days ago, artist Isabella Chan sent us this update — “Actually, K11 artist klub members can enjoy various support from K11 artist klub.”

WHAT IS K11 ARTIST KLUB? The K11 Artist Klub is a unique platform for the artistic community to share their ideas as a portal to facilitate connections between the business community and Klub 11 members.  K11 is always looking for new artistic collaborations and partnerships. Who should apply?

Accepting Submissions Until January 31st: Art For Urban Projection Screening

blogGreatWallOakland

The Great Wall of Oakland is accepting submissions through January 31, 2015 for their Fall 2015 season. Submit proposals, specific work, and projects of digital art, moving image, video, and new media work to be screened on their 100×100 foot urban projection space in Downtown Oakland, California. They’re particularly interested in site-specific installations that engage with the physical space of the projection and the building’s location in the public streets of Oakland.

Submit your work through the online submission form by January 31st 2015. You will receive notification of acceptance by February 15, 2015 for a Fall 2015 screening.

SUPERCUT – Accepting Submissions Through Jan 31st! The great Wall of Oakland seeks works that fit within, comment upon, or somehow relate to the video genre known as the “Supercut.” They seek work that employs compilation, montage, and short cuts to isolate elements and create a kind of ‘video concrète’. They’re especially interested in works that take a more artistic, conceptual, or critical approach and are not simply fan-created compilations of popular TV shows. Work will be displayed during The Wall’s March First Friday installation which is seen by thousands during Oakland’s Art Murmur event. Curated by Timothy Furstnau (FICTILIS) & Christina Yglesias.

Deadline: Saturday January 31, 2015. Artists notified February 15, 2015 for screening on March 6, 2015.

Studio Visit Site for Making Reservations to Visit Artist Studios

Jacks Pollock’s studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

We took a few days off during the Christmas holiday week and now we’re back to share the really great Studio Visit site that artists and collectors will want to know about. It’s an artist studio reservation service that is provided completely free to artists and collectors.

Studio Visit is a website for collectors to make reservations to visit artist studios searchable by city and country. So far, the main studio locations listed are cities in Germany, Spain, Mexico, Belgium and the Netherlands. Once you add your studio location your city will appear in the available locations.

Artists simply register with their studio address, name, and at least one picture of their studio. Artist/studios can add up to ten pictures of their studio space, up to ten images of their artwork, a Google map view, artist CV/Statement and other menu options.

The Studio Visit website provides a booking system. Through this system potential buyers and collectors will request a studio visit only on the days, times, and for the duration that the artist or studio configures. The booking system will ask for basic contact information from the collector that will be seen only by the artist/ studio they request to visit.

Once a collector books a studio visit reservation the studio will receive an email. In the studio account menu option RESERVATION MANAGE the reservation booking can be approved or rejected. If approved the collector will receive an email and can only go ahead with the studio visit appointment with this confirmation email.

Upload Pictures of Your Art Just Once to Multiple Online Galleries via New Service

 

blogRobotosforyourphotos

 

If you are an artist, you’ve probably spent hours of your valuable time adding your art images to online galleries, uploading each image individually to each site again and again. Now, there’s a new service (still being developed and coming soon). Robots for your Photos takes care of such boring and time-consuming repetitious tasks and reduces them down to one. You will upload your photos once to Robots for your Photos and the robots will add them to various photo servers and online galleries (such as Flickr, Facebook, 500px). These robots automatically connect to selected online platforms and determine the best time to publish your photographs based on collected data and an algorithm. Robots for your Photos will also collect your likes, favorites, and comments from all services into one location so you won’t have to check each service manually. Be one of the first to try Robots for your Photos here: http://robots.photos.

Big Ink Open Call Collaborative Large Woodcut Project and More

‘Portrait of Hagiwara Sakutarô’, woodblock print by Onchi Kôshirô, 1943, 1st edition, National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo

The Big Ink website and blog has a current call to artists to take part in a collaborative large woodcut project. Monumental prints inspire artists and the public alike to think big, set long-term goals, and have the perseverance to see complex projects to fruition.

Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry.  If accepted, artists are given two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood.  At the end of the two months, all the artists meet for a printing session at a local print studio and help one another print their woodcuts onto paper. Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.

Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.

– Send  a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.

– A link to your website/Facebook page.

– 6-8 quality images of your art.

They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it’s a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.

Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.

Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.

These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.
