“Migration”, a site-specific installation of concrete life-cast leaves, by Elizabeth White

“In view of the current economic disasters, political conditions, military actions & climate or earth changes I see immigration as the new normal.  What may be them today is us tomorrow.” — Elizabeth White

Many people spend a lifetime without ever having to consider the need to emigrate from their homeland.  Many others spend their lives learning what it means to always be an immigrant, never feeling quite at home.  And then there are others, never quite at home regardless of where they are.  When I saw the “Migration” installation by today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Elizabeth White, I marveled at the simple symbolism of leaves separated from their roots.  It is precisely how many of us feel, like leaves strewn about, seemingly at random.  Disconnected.

VEGGIE dough

Variety in the produce department is on it’s way out with the onset of winter temps.  Initially it feels dire –momentary panic.  But by the time winter arrives, Dec. 21st this year, I will appreciate the nutty sweetness of root veggies and the silky texture of winter squash and a rainbow of beans. Plus, the cost of my weekly produce goes down by a third leaving more money for art supplies. Woohoo! This next Call offers a great opportunity to stock your studio supply closet too.  Take a look…

My kitchen is sacred; all of them have been.  Studio space is sacred, all of them are.  I have had them in every size, and every quality –both kitchens & studios.  Now, my studio is attached to my kitchen, separated by a counter in my tiny new apartment.  I cannot create art outside of the view of my stove, nor create food outside of the view paint tubes & Mason jars of brushes.  It has been the most productive of marriages, compact, comfortable, safe.  This Call wants to know more about YOUR sacred space.  Take a look…

Sanctuary
from Gallery 263

Sanctuary is a place, a feeling, where harmony, beauty, and stillness are shielded and allowed to flourish. A sanctuary can lift us up and make us feel big.  Or, it can shrink us down and show us humility in the face of infinity. We find sanctuary in the presence of awesomeness. It posts up in supportive communities and makes itself known when the impossible becomes reality.” –from gallery263.com

raw FOOD

In a world where so many people are vegetarian or vegan, steak tartar was once the most controversial food conversations one could have.  Now we have so many more choices of things with which to disagree.  If we just stick to raw foods, there are still subgroups like fruitarians, juicearians, or sproutarians which cause heads to metaphorically explode.  The bottom line is that people have the right to determine what goes into their bodies, and what we choose to eat says something about who we are.  We are what we eat, right?  This next Call wants to know the raw truth about you through your work.  This one is personal…

Check out this Call for Entries from IU Kokomo Art Gallery (Kokomo, IN) for Raw: The Exhibition.  There is no entry fee, the media is wide open & the commission rate is low.  If you’re willing to let it hang out, this could be a great opportunity…
