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…

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to all artists

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

DEADLINE:  May 1, 2016

NOTIFICATION: June 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.
