Call for ART: Chasing Ghosts VI: Piercing the Veil through Remembrance, Legacy, & beyond

Jennifer Gillia Cutshall

DEADLINE is 9/26/21

“Chasing Ghosts VI: Art that Pierces the Veil through remembrance, legacy, and beyond”

This year edition will be VIRTUAL and as always the emphasis is the idea of revealing the unseen. The term ghost may be interpreted in many ways, not necessarily meant to be a literal elucidation. This year’s interpretations might be loaded with the added turmoil from current social, health, environmental, and political climate. Do you express your deepest fears or concerns through your work? Do current political. health, and environmental concerns shadow or define your work? What parts of the past leave their mark on your work? Is a legacy revealed through your work or your process? Is memory a vital vehicle of expression for you? Do you inadvertently honor something from your past or concern for the future through your work? Artists are encouraged to enter work that is any interpretation of the call. All mediums and modes of expression are welcome.

Enter through Cafe

Abstract Catalyst takes on a distinct edge that seems to catapult it in a divergent direction (and unlike the focus of Verum’s other Abstract show, Abstract Sanctuary). As always, the intention of the theme is never to drive the work, rather have it serve as an impetus to discover unique visions and showcase them. All mediums are welcome. What will be revealed this year? Verum Ultimum Gallery invites artists to showcase their talent within this expressive genre and propel a new vision in this 8th year of Abstract Catalyst Exhibition.

This is a virtual exhibition and all works will be displayed on the gallery website, within a virtual viewing gallery setting, and promoted through blogposts and social media channels.

Call for Artists: the 38th Annual Charbonneau Festival of the Arts

CHARBONNEAU ARTS ASSOCIATION
presents
the 38th Annual
Charbonneau Festival of the Arts

The 2021 Charbonneau “Art with Flair” Festival of the Arts will combine the best of two worlds for lovers of the arts to enjoy, admire and purchase fine art, crafts, and music — a LIVE Art & Music Show at the Charbonneau Events Center and a VIRTUAL EXHIBITION of Art & Music online through the end of the year.

Covid-19 & a Live Festival
Uppermost in our planning is the health, welfare and safety of all in attendance. Most COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, but we never know when that might change.

Live & Virtual Shows: Art & Music
Artists will be juried to display their works at the Live Art Gallery Show or the Live Artisan Vendor Show. For our Music Stage, musicians will be auditioned and selected for online performances and potentially invitations to live performances at this year’s festival. Those plans are still in development.

We want as many as physically possible to join us in person of course, but you have an additional option — the Virtual Exhibition — open to all artists, artisan vendors and musicians. This allows a broader range of artists and musicians to participate as well as a broader audience of supporters to attend in-person and online.

We strive to earn a five-star experience from our entrants as well as from our supporting audience who participate in the festival each year. To encourage as many as possible to enter, there will be no jury fees.

2021 Silent Auction
As in past years, we welcome entrants to donate one of their works of art or their music CD’s or performance tickets to our Silent Auction, which is one of the primary fundraisers.

Our Invitation to Join “Friends of Charbonneau Arts”
New this year, we are offering membership to the “Friends of Charbonneau Arts” which includes the benefit of discounts at festival registration.

Partnerships & Publicity
Community Partnerships. We are happy to announce that we are continuing our community partnership with the Wilsonville Arts & Cultural Council (WACC) this fall. As they were unable to present a live festival again this year, we are working together to invite their artists to our live and virtual shows and more. Organizers are still planning other exciting possibilities.

Spreading the Word. Along with our website presence, we offer widespread promotion of our event and our participating artists and musicians. We have planned publicity with the help of Pamplin Media, our ongoing partnerships with the Charbonneau Villager, Wilsonville’s Boones Ferry Messenger, the Clackamas County Art Alliance, Charbonneaulive.com and other online and print outlets, to help us promote the Virtual Exhibition throughout the region. Our big marketing push starts in September and includes print and online media buys. We maintain active Facebook and Instagram pages where we post features on all artists and musicians participating in the show. Posters, flyers and postcards are used throughout the local area to promote the event. An online media kit page with digital flyers are made available to all juried-in artists and musicians to forward to their personal mailing lists. Last year several thousand viewers checked into our Virtual Exhibition. In past years, the live show has also attracted hundreds of local artists and supporters of the arts over the three-day festival.

We hope to see you at the 2021 Charbonneau’“Art with Flair” Festival of the Arts, sell a lot of art and music, and raise funds for our local high school art programs too. Click the following button link to begin the process.

Our deadline for this year’s entries is August 13, 2021.

See you in November!

John McLain, Chair
2021 Charbonneau Festival of the Arts

Call for Artists: On to New Horizons

Call to Art Makers living/working in Oregon for an Open/Invitational show

Deadline: September 12, 2021

Date of Exhibition: November 18 – December 29, 2021

In 2020, The Arts Center asked art makers to think about what “home” meant to us all in the year-end Home Sweet Home exhibit. At that time, our homes were our prison and/or our sanctuary. This year, we have seen signs of hope and getting back to what once was called “normal”, after the intense time of restrictions.

For the 2021 Winter show, The Arts Center seeks artworks that contemplates the notion of going On to New Horizons.

How can we express our regained freedom of movement and re-emergence back in the world? Interpretation of a “new horizon” can be literal, (now that we can venture out again), or metaphoric, (an escape of the confinement in which we all lived). May this show inspire dreams of our renewed possibilities:  about community, about travel to exotic places or to our own backyards. Visits with friends at gatherings and festivals, and meeting new people are other subjects to explore. There is an opportunity for storytelling and representational art, but also for more conceptual and abstract artwork. 

  • On to New Horizons will be a hybrid invitational and non-juried exhibit.
  • Registration is required by Sunday, September 12, 2021 via online submission form.
  • All art makers and creatives will be notified that their work submission has been received. Emails confirming decisions of the selection committee will be sent October 1, 2021. This is our holiday show, you may consider the gift appeal of your work. 
  • All submitting art makers and creatives must include a short statement about what On to New Horizons means to you, and how it is expressed in your artwork. 

This Call is for all visual art media, literary short prose and poetry, music and recorded dance performances! The recorded literary readings and performative arts videos will be played on a monitor in the gallery and shared online. Literary arts submissions will also be collected in a loose leaf book to enjoy reading in the gallery. We will schedule a “Read-In” for our writers and the public. 

We welcome artists of all ages and levels of experience. We encourage a diverse selection of artists to sign up, including artists from traditionally or currently underserved communities including (but is not limited to): artists from rural communities, emerging artists, artists from communities of color, LGBTQ+, artists who are self-taught, and artists new to creating artwork. We welcome artists regardless of citizenship status, color, familial status, gender identity or expression, religious observance, sex, sexual orientation, and sources or level of income.
