yogurtmagphoto3

Larisa Oancea, curator and content contributor at Yogurt Magazine, a creative magazine based in Rome focused on contemporary photography and visual arts sent us their Call for Entries to share our with our readers (and on social media)—

Taking its cue from Jung’s concept of “sublimation”, Yogurt Magazine is an ambitious visual research about the new anthropology of Eros. Our current call for artists reflects, as well, on the concept of desirable body and its uncanny derivations in contemporary photography.

YOGURT MAGAZINE

CALL FOR ENTRIES

The desirable body and its uncanny derivations in contemporary photography

Yogurt Magazine is seeking for photographies which grasp an original interpretation of the concept of sensuality and its uncanny derivations: desirable body, masculine or feminine, whole or fragmented.

You are invited to propose your photos to info@yogurtmagazine

DEADLINE: March 30th 2017

 

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,

Larisa Oancea

#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.

Master Creator Attributes His Success to Learning How to Submit His Work

I’ve been telling artists for years to submit their work! So I felt validated by a great master when I read this quote–

“Think up ideas for stories, go out and shoot them, and then send them in to the magazines. I was lucky; I figured that out when I was young.” Stanley Kubrick

This great, important and successful filmmaker started out as a photographer and unknown. He got his start by submitting his work and getting it into magazine.

This applies to all artists working in all materials and styles — you should be submitting your work to appropriate art magazines, art consultants, art galleries, interior designers, and art licensing companies.

I wrote and published an e-book guide to help artists make submissions (available here) and e-lists of resources to help artists quickly and easily find the best places submit their work. I continue to compile my extensive and growing e-list of art and design magazines where you can submit your work for a feature (available here),  and an e-list of links to over 5,000 USA and international art galleries (here), an e-list of art consultants (here) and art licensing companies (here). Plus specialized e-lists of print sales sites (here) and photography agents and resources (here).

Life Imitates Art Fundraiser Art Auction March 12th

dignitySAlogo

 

On Saturday, 12 March 2016 at 2 p.m. (14h00), DignitySA hosts a Prestigious Art Auction at the magnificent 5 star Hollywood Mansion in Camps Bay, Cape Town, South Africa.  Anyone around the world may bid on the art at the auction via telephone.

Notable South African artists will be represented including Benon Lutaaya, Barry Lungu, Dr Jack & Curtis, Restone Maambo, Lioda Conrad, Casper de Vries, John Adams, Carrol Boyes, JP Meyer, Shani Krebs, Alex Hamilton, Andre du Toit, Shui-Lynn White, Jade Holing, Jill Coleman, Dlamini Tendai, Mkhululi Dukuza, TC Malia, Edward Selematsela, David Barkham, Keith Zenda, Sylvia de Villiers and Arlette Franks- to mention a few. A special addition to the auction is a “for children” lot which includes works by Robin Stransham-Ford’s daughter, Epiphany (13); Mario Oriani-Ambrosini’s son, Luke (8); Diago Moss (4), nephew of the late Avron Moss, and Kayla Molenaar (12).

One of South Africa’s foremost female artists, Lioda Conrad, was commissioned by DignitySA to do a portrait series of the honorees. She chose her “Fluidity of Identity” series, and not only donated the portraits, but agreed to act as Curator for the event. Details of her Fluidity Series can be found here: http://www.xposy.com/…/life-imitates-art-lioda-conrad-flui…/

DignitySA chose art to raise funds as artists see beauty where others sometimes cannot. Death and dying needn’t be hideous – it can be a gentle, dignified experience, for the patient and their loved ones.

Remote bidding and on the day sales of additional artworks will be available.

Guests and art collectors can look forward to entertainment by Marc Lottering and Keri Stroebel; unique artwork; experiencing Carlo Harris – a Master Auctioneer – at work; mingling with esteemed guests, board members and legal team, bidding paddle lucky draws; and enjoy delectable gourmet snacks and Montpellier wines.

For more information and a look at some of the works available, or to book a ticket, visit www.dignitysa.org. Tickets are limited, with just 90 tickets still available at R800 per person. Tax deductible donations in lieu of attendance will be welcomed. Contact: Lee on 0769424477 or at lee@dignitysa.org.

Honorees include our first democratic president, President Nelson Mandela – for his Draft Bill “The End of Life Decisions Act of 1999”, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who got the world talking when he publicly supported the right to choose a dignified death and Professor Sean Davison – who founded DignitySA.

The purpose of the fundraiser is two-fold: To raise funds for the Appeal and to honour those who have dedicated themselves to changing an unjust law.

In a recent groundbreaking judgment in the North Gauteng High Court, Judge Hans Fabricius granted DignitySA’s applicant, Adv. Robin Stransham-Ford, the right to an assisted death. This ruling has, however, been set aside due to the State and others appealing the judgment. The date of the Appeal has yet to be announced, but DignitySA’s legal team is fully prepared to vigorously defend our human right to dignity and autonomy over our bodies, for those who demand choice at end-of-life.

Submit Your Art to Jung Katz Art Blog for #Artist Feature

jungkatz

I’ve posted about Jung Katz before. I like them because they actively promote the artists they feature, and you’ll find drawing, paintings, photographic art, collage and other media on the Jung Katz blog. Recently, I encountered Jung Katz art tweets–follow them on Twitter here–that took me to their site.

From the Jung Katz art blog:

We’re looking for original artists, designers, and photographers to feature on our site.

Jung Katz contemporary art blog is accepting artist submissions for feature artist interviews.

Read the Jung Katz submission guidelines here.

The Fantastical Human Art Forms of Olga Zavershinskaya aka Armene

Drop, Olga Zavershinskaya

Drop, Olga Zavershinskaya

Russian fine art photographer and artist Olga Zavershinskaya aka Armene lives and works in the Czech Republic. Olga has exhibited internationally and is represented by the Art Gallery AFK in Lisbon, Portugal. Her work contains combinations and contrasts–the beautiful in conjunction with the unbeautiful–as in Drop, above, where the controlled perfection of the lovely neck, face and hair of the model unexpectedly expands into an erratic splash of wet black ink, and in Dark Thoughts, where the model falls forward streaming ink from her hair in impossibly suspended lines, runs and drizzles.

Dark Thoughts, Olga Z

Dark Thoughts, Olga Z

Jellyfish, Olga Zavershinskaya

Jellyfish, Olga Zavershinskaya

In Olga’s photographic image titled Jellyfish, the diaphanous fluther of seaforms float as a backdrop for a lavender colored corpse-like human figure, the combination in such a scene causes wonderment in the viewer at the possibilities of this visual narrative.

Angle VI, Olga Zavershunskaya

Angle VI, Olga Zavershinskaya

Olga Zavershinskaya, master of anatomy, photographs the human form in elegant nudes, solo and minimal, as in Angle VI. Or nudes with props, such as the texture of the sheer wet fabric simultaneously covering and revealing the figure in Transparency IV.

Transparency IV

Transparency IV

Fantastical works of fantasy, as in the lush Peacock with several cyclopic eyes that gaze back at the viewer while other orbs in the image stray off to one side or the other and up, in one of Olga’s most enigmatic and surrealistic scenes, recalling tales of fantastic Magic Realism in a puzzlement at how she could have created the image!

Peacock, Olga Zavershinskaya

Peacock, Olga Zavershinskaya

Olga’s visualizations start her off on her use of the model to realize her unusual ideas and creative concepts, that she completes with with skillful post-production processing methods to produce the final images.

This Simple, Elegant Approach By A Photographer in Finland

We received this simple, elegant approach from photographer Anders Lönnfeldt–
“I hope you are having a great summer.
I want to share one of my latest Instagram photos with you. I mainly share my work on Instagram at the moment, since it works best for me. Feel free to follow me on Instagram: https://instagram.com/anderslonnfeldt/
Where do you share you work at the moment? Any great platforms that I maybe don’t know about?
Have a great summer:) Anders Lönnfeldt  http://www.anderslonnfeldt.com/ “
We really loved this, and the photo he sent (below). We replied to his question by letting him about Xposy Multimedia Magazine. Anders took a look at the feature articles on Xposy, many of contemporary musicians and photographers.  As it turns out, Anders has photographed many international recording artists! So we featured his work in an article on Xposy here.

Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system for harmonizing everyone with their environment using color and the elements of water, wood, earth, and metal. The idea of Feng Shui is to surround yourself with beautiful art decor designed to optimize your state of mind and bring positive energy into your home and office. One of the simplest ways to introduce Feng Shui color and elements into your living and work space is by decorating with Feng Shui artwork.

Feng Shui art is a niche market that incorporates a wide variety of artwork styles and subject matter. Feng Shui artwork can be photographic prints, tapestries and wall hangings, fine art prints, paintings and sculptural artworks.

According to the Feng Shui experts at Explosion Luck, “Our special Feng Shui art collection of ready-to-hang landscape paintings, bird art, mountain paintings, portrait paintings, sandart, water paintings, western art paintings, wildlife paintings, horse paintings, equine photos, still life paintings, and Buddha thangkas aims at bringing many areas of your life into balance, so that you can enjoy the many benefits of the beautiful universal energies represented in the inspirational Feng Shui artwork.”

Art Marketing Site Promotes Artists and Art Galleries in Unique Ways

blogflootiesgraphic_how_to

 

Art Marketing Site Promotes Artists and Art Galleries in Unique Ways by Dean Cameron

Having had a 30 year career in Marketing and owning an Online Art Gallery and Publishing business since 2002, it is obvious that “times are a changing”. While there is nothing inherently wrong with traditional methods such as Gallery Representation, Art Shows and such, they are rendered somewhat incomplete with today’s super connected world that we live in. Social Media Networking is paramount to the vast majority of up and coming artists and that is not just Facebook. Twitter, Pinterest, Google +, Stumble Upon, LinkedIn and now YouTube offer unique opportunities and diverse clientele to develop an artist’s brand and to stay connected to interested potential clients. So is Social Media the answer to a successful art career? I would say this. As Social Media came on like a storm so will the next best vehicle (we don’t know what it will be yet because some 12-year-old is inventing it in their mind right now) so we need to be as current as we can be.

One thing I have learned in 30 years of Marketing is that opportunities come from many directions. So our Marketing Plan should take advantage of that and cast a wide net. An Artist needs to have a complete tool box in which to develop their market and build their art creating business. We have developed that Tool Box. www.flootie.com creates a menu of items an artist can choose from in order to best suit their plans. Most “Art for Sale” Internet Sites are what we call “Post it and Forget it” type sites. You post your book of work online and hope that someone comes along and makes a purchase. www.flootie.com is not that type of Internet Marketing Site. We offer the following features for artists to be proactive in their efforts to sell their works and create their brand.

  • Flootie offers a free listing in our International Artists Directory (see Registration link for Artists and follow prompts).
  • Flootie offers a free listing in our International Art Gallery Directory. Our site works well for Artists and their Gallery partners to work together to market an artist’s brand (see Registration link for Artists and follow prompts).
  • Flootie offers very affordable subscription levels and does not charge upload fees or commissions on sales.
  • Flootie offers one on one support to answer marketing questions
  • Flootie offers all major Social Media links for sharing directly from your art listing. You can share to your network and anyone else can share your works with their networks in an easy efficient method.
  • Flootie offers a direct email invitation tool to share your activity on Flootie.
  • Flootie offers a method to automatically share your latest posts with any fan who selects you as a favorite artist in a “once per week” email notification.
  • Flootie offers an option to embed your Google Calendar to your page to keep people informed of your shows and exhibitions.
  • Flootie offers an option to include a video on your page to bring life to your relationships with potential clients.
  • Flootie charges no commissions for sales so you can drive potential clients to your website, or any other location you wish to generate traffic to. We are not competition. We are your marketing supercharger.
  • Flootie offers a blog for subscriber artists to post their latest stories, reflections and insights.
  • Flootie owns and operates our own TV Studio and produces Flootie TV now being shown in 7 states on 8 Public TV Stations with that number growing fast. Flootie TV incorporates a “general public” approach to the arts with some comedic shorts as well as serious artist interviews. Think of it as “The Tonight Show” for the arts.
  • Flootie is a socially conscious company and has an ongoing program called “Artists Forever” that awards art supplies grants to grade school art classes to empower teachers to supplement their meager art budgets in the school systems and develop the next generation of creatives.

This is by no means the end of this list. Flootie is well underway with even more creative tools for artists to connect with art lovers. Our mission is to make the term “Starving Artist” obsolete. We would look forward to seeing you as a fan, an artist or an art related business. We are a grass-roots and privately owned entity with the sole intention to bring the artists and art lovers together in an intentional way.

About Dean Cameron

Dean Cameron has a 30 year career in Sales and Marketing in numerous industries resulting in relationships with many Fortune 500 Companies.

About IDENTITY

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else“
– Margaret Mead

Certain aspects of one’s individual identity such as race, gender, ancestry, genetic makeup and so on, come naturally at birth.  One could, however, consciously choose other aspects such as nicknames, profession, religion, hairstyles, ways of life, gender expression et cetera, to make oneself more unique. Between choice and nature, there are aspects such as nationality, history, psyche and social roles, which influence our sense of identity. Identity could simply be personal disposition, or an unwilling imposition by the society at large.

If identification of self makes the person, collective identity allows for mutual recognition-security as well as solidarity.  Group attributes, though, could be real or virtual, lasting or ephemeral, like one’s profile on social media. Overemphasis of the collective, however, could result in alienation, prejudice, confrontation and even enmity.

In the age of globalization, a local majority could easily become a minority in the wider world.  As global citizens, we hope for and embrace the belief that elastic and flexible identities can bring diversity and progress, rather than confrontation.

If defining our collective identities in this city seems like an almost impossible pursuit, images could, perhaps, provide a platform to start.

“Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else’s opinion, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation“
– Oscar Wilde
