CALL for ENTRIES: The UN Show

MENU

Frequently, the most memorable kitchen creations are happy accidents.  As much as I love a list, theme and a plan, sometimes I find myself in a situation that forces me to create a masterpiece from what I have on hand or try something new on the spur of the moment.  My favorite chicken-cheddar-broccoli soup came about as a necessary use of what I could find in the frig.  Now it is a winter menu staple in our house. This next Call is a show that is both un-juried & un-curated, but I KNOW this organization.  It will definitely be a show not to be missed, and you can be a part of it.  Please investigate this one…

Check out this Call for Entries from The Haggus Society (Los Angeles) for The UN Show.  Enter for only $12.50 or FREE if you’re a member.  This is a great resume builder…

NUTRITION

MREs now have a strong secondary market–doomsday preppers.  I don’t think that most people relish the idea of eating pre-packaged, processed military rations.  They have improved great (or so I’ve been told); pizza is even on the horizon.  However, I would think that preserving seeds, building hydroponic systems and farming fish would be better long-term solutions than MREs.  But then again, I’m not a doomsday prepper–so, what do I know?  This next Call wants your view on militarism, but I don’t think they are interested in the food options.  Take a look…

GOODNESS

My ultimate comfort food is cheese or nearly any kind.  Weird, eh?  But, I’m sure some of you claim oatmeal or hamburgers, pizza or kale chips as YOUR comfort food.  Sometimes the comfort of another is just enough to get you to try and love a new food.  This next Call belongs to a gallery that I find to be a comfort.  Try it for yourself; you just may love it…

City life means access to international food.  I’m meant to live in the country.  It is just the way I am wired.  My town has a population of approximately 3500 people.  The downside?  The only thing close to international fare is Thai (which I love), Mexican, Italian & Japanese.  When someone suggests a trip to Asheville (about an hour from me), I start salivating for the taste of goat skewers.  I don’t see bumper to bumper traffic or crowded parking lots or tall office buildings.  That’s my perspective.  This next Call wants YOUR views on city life.  Take a look…

SPRINKLES

Hello, my name is Rachel, and I am an emotional eater.  I own it most days.  I have learned to indulge the tendency with care.  Potato chips and dip are fine after an occasional day of stress as long as it isn’t a daily ritual.  Also, I’ve learned to be more discerning about the potato chips and dip I chose, of course.  I find that my celebration eating is far worse than my stress eating though.  I am wishing lots of celebration cupcakes for the five of my readers (fingers crossed) that make the cut for this next Call.  Take a look…

ROOTS

I spent the majority of my life hating beets, but I was so very wrong.  They are my favorite color on the planet; that should have been my first hint.  The beautiful shade of purplish-red found in sugar beets was the first clue that they held an earthly luscious quality not to be missed.  Roasted or pickled, warmed or chilled, I can’t get enough of them now.  This next Call wants to know all you love about hue and saturation.  Let them see your best…

JUROR:  Lynda Schlosberg is a Boston-based abstract artist who creates intricate and process-oriented paintings that are constructed using a series of interwoven layers of meticulous repeating patterns of dots, dashes, and grids using highly saturated, vibrant and illusory colors. It is through her skillful utilization of color theory and pattern that she constructs spatial illusions that expand and recede simultaneously, when viewed, fully exercise the mind and the eye.

Schlosberg received her MFA from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, and her BFA from Ohio University College of Art. She is represented by Susan Maasch Fine Art in Portland, ME and by Kingston Gallery in Boston. She has recently partnered with the non-profit Art in Giving. She maintains a studio in Waltham, MA.

SALES:   All proceeds from art sales go to the artist. Gallery 263 acts as the liaison between the artist and any parties interested in purchasing artwork.  However, they do suggest a 30% donation to the gallery from any sales made.

FOOD

I never thought about what astronauts ate when I was little, but I was disturbed that all they had to drink was Tang–or so I thought, ha.  Gone are the days of strictly canned or freeze-dried foods in space.  Now, those travelers have fresh fruits, vegetables and even waffles and scones.  But, I think being faced with irradiated meat might make me a vegetarian in short order.  This next Call contemplates the entirety of the cosmos, not just the menu.  Investigate!

Cosmos

 

This exhibit invites artists to envision the mysteries of the universe, both scientific and fantastical, theoretical and fictional, real and imagined.  How do artists render the work of scientists, authors, explorers, astronomers, cartoonists, Trekkies, LARPers, astrologers, and philosophers? This exhibit embraces not only what science has revealed about space, but what humans have imagined about the cosmos.  From the results of scientific inquiry to the creative minds of science fiction authors and fans, this exhibit celebrates how space has stimulated human understanding and creativity.  From the big bang theory to worm holes and warp speed, artists are invited to submit works that bring to life what we know of space and what we imagine.  The goal is to assemble a vibrant and diverse selection of works that speak to our fascination with the cosmos.  –from prospectus
