CALL for ENTRIES: Photo Shoot 2016

2016 September 29

Learn more about the Photo Shoot 2016 Exhibit from the Black Box Gallery in Portland, OR!PRODUCE unboxed, unbagged

Grocery cashiers aren’t my biggest fans.  They seem to take issue with my lack of packaging.  Why do my two lemons need to be in a plastic bag?  Onions come in their own wrapping.  Why would I protect them from getting dirty when I am just going to peel them? Is it really that hard to corral my summer squash and carrots outside of a bag or box?  This next Call is a great reason to think inside the “box”.  Just leave your produce unfettered. Take a look…

Food bartering is alive & well.  Many of you know that I earn a living as a full-time creative, and much of that time is spent as a performing musician.  Farmer’s markets & farm-to-table dinners are among our favorite shows due to the partial payment in food.  Our menu is dotted with treats from the very landscapes that supply our backstage & side-stage views.  This Call asks, “how does your ‘scape’ inform you work?”. Take a look…

"Orange Dream", acrylic & oil, by Patricia Derks

“Orange Dream”, acrylic & oil, by Patricia Derks

“Zo ben ik steeds zoekende naar nieuwe onderwerpen,
verschillende technieken, altijd weer anders.
Soms verrassend, soms helemaal niets.” —
Patricia Derks

(So I’m always looking for new subjects, different techniques, always
different.
Sometimes surprising, sometimes nothing at all.)

__

Today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Patricia Derks, has a way with color that conveys more than the subject, or artist, seems to intend the view to see.  Today, “Orange Dream” said, “I see you. Me too.”  What does her work say to you?

(Brownie points from me if it is, though.)  So, make it work…

Learn more about The Artist as Maker, Thinker & Feeler!hot HOT hot

My kitchen is awash with hot peppers.  A trip to our UT Farmers Market resulted in a bounty of experimental varietals of habenero & Scotch bonnet peppers.  I moved them from a paper bag to the dehydrator trays, and three hand washes later, my hands were still on fire.  The maker in me couldn’t let go of the idea that I need to preserve them for use over the winter.  The maker in me tries to find a use for every extra.  How does your maker-thinker-feeler side affect your work?  This Call wants to know.  Take a look…

It is the first day of Fall, and I am still nursing my garlic chives from Spring.  I received a gift of a 6″ starter of garlic chives from a farmers market vendor.  And, instead of re-potting, I just sat it in a dish in my window sill and kept clipping and watering.  Miraculously, it is still here –testament to an excellent offering from an excellent farmer.  This next Call is excellent.  Trust me, you won’t regret sending a proposal. I promise.
