Ramps make the world go ’round this time of year.  If you are unfamiliar, they are a kind of wild onion or leek that can be a beautiful highlight to soups, salads and simple sautes.  It is the only time of the year when onions become a main dish in our house.   They are easy, inexpensive, available seemingly everywhere and very simple to grow.  Sometimes easy is good.  This next Call is easy.  Email your work, pay the fee and possible get a HUGE, easy going kind of return on your investment.  DEADLINE IS SUNDAY…

MEDIA:  Figurative or representational paintings, drawings (including mixed media) & original prints.

DEADLINE:  May 1, 2016

ENTRY FEE:  €20 (approx. $23 USD) for 5-10 works

AWARDS:  The Moth Art Prize consists of a month-long retreat at a newly renovated barn in a beautiful lakeland setting in rural Ireland, along with a travel stipend of €1,000 (approx $1144 USD).  The barn, which features a studio and living area downstairs and open-plan accommodation upstairs, is situated along a quiet country lane, surrounded by lakes.  The nearest village of Milltown, which has a shop and a pub, is a few kilometers away. A bicycle will be provided, and the publishers of The Moth will be on hand to take you to the nearest town for provisions.

The winner chooses what month of the year they would like to spend at the barn. There is room enough in the barn to accommodate a partner and up to three children, if you should wish to travel en famille.  There is no onus on the artist to produce a body of work while staying at the barn. We want it to be a place to rejuvenate and be inspired.

Because we live 20+ minutes to the closest grocery store, it can be very frustrating to start dinner and realize we’re out of onions or potatoes or eggs or whatever.  So, we are all about menu planning at our house.  This next Call is about planning as well, but it requires your input, your participation.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from AAAD for 2016-17 Planning & Progress.  We have a lot going on, and I need your guidance an input to make sure that AAAD heads in a direction that works for all of us.  I even formatted it like our normal calls to be certain that I don’t shake up the routine too much, ha.  Keep reading…

MEDIA:  Are we including all the media Calls you want?  Am I missing something?  Am I under-representing your media?  Please tell me.  I largely post at the request of jurors and gallerists, so sometimes I unintentionally wear blinders.

DEADLINE:  April 18, 2016.  AAAD has a #smallworks (9×12 or smaller) Call out with an April 18th deadline, SMALL PLATES: A Response to Hunger.  $5 Entry & open to prints. Please enter so that we can provide more show opportunities in the future!

NOTIFICATION:  Now.  Tell me what you need from AAAD.  We have incorporated a lot of changes over the years based on readers’ suggestions.  And, I am open to more.  The site will undergo some dramatic aesthetic changes and alterations to the formatting of posts and subscriptions, and you can help shape that process.  The resources will remain the same, and you’re simply stuck with the food references.  But, I’m open to hearing you.  Email me, leave a comment on the post (link to comments at top) or reply to your subscription email.  Any way you wanna…

FEE:  None.  I am maintaining my commitment to NOT charge artists for use of this site. Ever.

Learn how you can help #saveERNIE!JUROR:  R.L. (Rachel) Gibson, continues to be the Editor.  Me.  Publication has been a bit sporadic lately because of events that left my family stranded in rural Virginia for a while.  Dramatic, I know.  I try not to publish personal posts often.  But you were so kind when I lost my father a few years ago, that I thought I would share.  Here’s the whole #saveERNIE story.  So many of you ask me if there is anything you can do to help out at AAAD.  There is.  Instead of paying a $5 Artist of the Day fee or the $15 Artist to Love fee, donate $10 to #saveERNIE, I will enter you for FREE in both the Artist of the Day competition & Artist to Love directory.  Plus, you have a chance to win a house concert.  Time runs out Monday, August 18th, so hurry.

SALES:  Selling art?  Yes?  YEAH!  No? Maybe I can help.  I will be travelling the country this summer giving career development seminars at Arts agencies and collectives.  If you have a ideas for someone that I should approach with seminars, including “How to Price Your Art”, “Creative Branding” & more, let me know.

AWARDS:  Brownie points.  I have millions of “brownie points” up for grabs.  You know you want them.  It is easy to get them.  Choose from one or ALL of these methods:

  • Subscribe to our FREE email (top right sidebar)

We intentionally create leftovers by overcooking dinner so that we have a few easy options for lunch on hand.  But, left over veggies that didn’t get fully used in salads or stir frys become the best fillings for spring rolls.  We’re a little addicted.  Have I mentioned that rice paper is my newest obsession? As much as I appreciate their function, I’ll admit that how little room they take up in the pantry and the fact that they seemingly never expire may very well make them the perfect bread replacement.  Yum. This next call wants your paper, but it doesn’t have to be rice paper…

CALL for ENTRIES: The Retrieval

2016 April 8

Learn more from The Painting Center in Chelsea!the STOMACH knows

Beautiful food is enticing.  Culinary schools offer classes that teach presentation for a reason.  But ugly food has its place. I had lunch with a friend yesterday; she insisted I pick the restaurant.  I chose Indian food only to discover she had never eaten Indian food.  I felt the need to warn her that the food was delicious, but ugly.  Maybe ugly is a little too strong.  It looks a bit like mud on rice, but the stomach doesn’t care what food looks like..  This next call isn’t muddy, it wants to see all that is beautiful.  Take a look…

Popcorn is now complicated.  I used to enjoy it from the theatre or from the microwave.  But in the continuing effort to eat real food, my husband now insists on popping it from the kernel on top of the stove.  We ran out two days ago, and after briefly considering experimenting with the .gif suggesting you can pop it on the cob in your microwave (don’t do this, btw), we opted for a bag of microwaveable popcorn left from a recent hotel stay.  Just no. Because Styrofoam, no. The next Call is Popped, sort of, & they don’t want Styrofoam either.  Deadline is NOW…

Nourishment is personal.  Salt is a perfect example.  There is no other edible substance that I can think of that is more divisive. One simple dusting of salt can define the line between edible or not for a huge range of people. Be it food or artistic inspiration, how you feed yourself has to be personal.  What else could it be?  This Call is personal for me.  I have been hungry, physically & creatively; have you?  The show is short and simple.  I have extended the deadline in an effort to include more work from more artists.  Your support will determine the growth of this opportunity. Please make it personal for you too…
