Vera by Photographer Dan McCormack
Vera
Pinhole Photography
McCORMACK used a round oatmeal box pinhole camera to create a series of visceral images. Through successive pulling of curves in Photoshop, B&W values are replaced with color. The “Nude at Home” series, began about five years ago.

McCormack photographs the model nude in her home, apartment or studio. With the model in her space, all the objects in the image are a part of the life of the model. Then the pose, the furniture and the long, two minute exposures reveal an intimate portrait of the subject.

FAVORITE FOOD: Blueberries

CALL for ENTRIES: Flowers, Plants & Gardens

SOUR?

I dream of lemons & olives–and corn, of course.  While dreaming of my future garden, I am excited at the prospect of growing non-GMO corn.  But, I also have fantasies of the produce I love most like lemons and olives, neither of which is native to my climate.  Is it just enormous hubris on my part to believe that if I try to grow them in a walipini that they will automatically surpass the quality of the native-grown varieties that I buy after their long trip to my local grocery store?  What is it about humans that makes us want to manipulate plants?  This next Call wants to see how you successfully manipulate plants in your art.  Take a look…

ARTIST to LOVE: Ansley Adams

2014 December 10

WE found ANOTHER great one!

  This fantastic artist is from Rock Hill, SC!  Say “Hello” to our newest Artist to Love

Ansley Adams
Painting
The Red Horse, Oil Painting by Ansley Adams
The Red Horse
Oil Painting
ADAMS was born in the rural outskirts of Pittsburgh, PA, where she lived before settling in Charlotte, NC. Adams obtained a BA in Art & Education from Wingate University & a MFA in Painting at the University of SC. Her research on objects and the interior is drawn from the emotional memory of solitude and longing that the memory of place or thing holds for her. She is inspired by the desire to express, through ideas of shared experience, the emotional memory that these locations or 'special objects' hold.

CALL for ENTRIES: The Sketchbook Project

pickled, not red

My pantry is a library of food fads and favorites.  You’ll find canned tomatoes from my mother (necessary to all of my favorite dishes) and high-fat coconut milk (necessary to all quiet indulgences).  Then there is the the fruit cocktail, quince marmalade, pickled herring, kimchi, a jar of black lime & a few dried apricots left over from some food obsession or experiment that either went awry or with which I got bored.  I can’t bring myself to get rid of the non-expired food no matter how random because they occasionally inspire genius.  This next Call displays the beauty of collecting and sometimes inspires genius.  This is a beautiful idea…

Check out this Call for Entries from The Brooklyn Art Library for The Sketchbook Project (SBP 2015).  Send your work on tour of museums and galleries across North America for as little as $25!  Since the last time I mention SBP, there is now a digitized option!  Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES: Chronograph

FROZEN?

To freeze or not to freeze– THAT is the question.  I tend to cook in large quantities.  I do it on purpose to provide additional dinners, but mostly lunches, with the same amount of effort it took to make dinner.  The problem is that not all food freezes well.  Chili is great reheated after being frozen for a week, but potato soup becomes paste after only a day in the freezer.  Casseroles take on a luscious, unctuous quality while mushrooms turn to rubber.  This next Call want you to freeze TIME, for better or for worse.  Brilliant.  Are you up for the challenge?

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Chronograph. They always have a low entry fee ($24) & a great juror.  But, I have a soft spot for this theme.  Take a look

Chronograph

 

“Photography is a medium renowned for freezing time. However, there are many facets and dichotomies this theme of chronology can visually explore.  Darkroom Gallery is calling for explorative visual depictions of time.  Pasts and futures can often collide…and what of time travelers and quantum physics?  Lastly, photographs can be truly devoid of time, they can have a sort of classic “timelessness”. “ – from darkroomgallery.com

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists 18+

MEDIA: Photography

THEME:  Time-oriented photography; vintage, futuristic or rhythmic imagery.

DEADLINE: December 28, 2014

My first taste of coconut milk, and I was sold.  It isn’t always that way.  Beets took 20 years to get on my good side.  But coconut milk is good in everything.  Granted, I prefer the high fat canned version, but I’m even enamored using the carton in the frig for everything from breakfast cereal to hot cocoa–and then there is the homemade ice cream, yum.  This next Call is your chance to fall in love with something on the very first try.  There is only one first, so don’t miss your opportunity…
