CALL for ENTRIES: Trees 2016

2016 June 15

Learn more about the TREES exhibit from NYC4PA - New York Center for Photographic Art!NUTS for one & all

Last Fall the local acorn crop failed, along with most of the hard mast.  As a result, black bears suffered along with the deer, squirrels & jays; it is a primary food source in the Smokies.  The bears were so hungry last year, more than 50 of them ended up at our local rescue.  I am hopeful for this year’s crop.  Every squirrel, chipmunk & jay that has crossed my path has done so with a green acorn in its mouth, or so it seems.  Fingers crossed the trees don’t let all the little critters down this year.  This next Call is also all about the trees.  I like this one…

Check out this Call for Entries from NYC4PA for Trees 2016.  Open to ALL photographic processes, this show awards a NY group exhibit, an online exhibit & cash prizes!  Take a look…

Trees 2016
from NYC4PA

“Trees are essential to the lifeblood of the world.  Roots hold the soil so erosion is mitigated.  They are home to birds, squirrels and many other of nature’s creatures.  They bear fruit and in the fall the colors enhance our lives.  Trees can also be looming, ominous, and, in cases of stormy weather, dangerous.  They are integral to forests and jungles.  They stand alone on a hillside creating lovely shadows; shade a child on a hot day; are sturdy posts to tie up the pet dog, hold a hammock off the ground. Remember the lost art of the backyard laundry line.  Send us your images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, roots.”  –NYC4PA.com

It seems that today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Jennie Traill Schaeffer finds an inner purpose or being, a light if you will, in all objects.  It doesn’t upset me at all that she chose cupcakes this time.  Enjoy this sweet treat…

CALL for ENTRIES: We Love People

2016 June 14

Learn more about the We Love People exhibit from Atelier Alen!so so many EGGS

We eat dozens & dozens of eggs each month. It would be easy to assume that when we’re out, we’d avoid them.  That’s not really the case.  I have them fried, over-medium, after late night outings, take them cold & hard-boiled to picnics or on early mornings.  And on my recent stop at Sugar Mama’s, a little bakery/bar combo, in Knoxville, I was treated to “German Eggs”.  Think of it as a fluffy egg bake or like a crustless quiche.  Delicious.  (Funny enough, German tourists suggested we Google “german eggs slang”. Funny.)  This Call hails from Munich, but doesn’t require the inclusion of eggs.  Great international show opportunity…

what a peach APRICOT

I often feel indignant about crap people are willing to eat.  Yes, it’s a little judge-y.  But, there are so many people worldwide without the access to healthy food, so I find myself impatient when people take it for granted.  But, I digress.  My husband recently enjoyed making fun of the newly-acquired fact that the only apricots I have ever eaten have been dried or a part of a sauce or jam.  My husband insisted we buy a fresh apricot, and, apparently, it is on the menu as a part of my breakfast in the morning. I’m not opposed; it just hasn’t ever been a thing.  There is a first for everything, right? This Call is a first for this brand new gallery.  Investigate this artist-run space…

ARTIST of the DAY: Gehard Demetz

2016 June 13

sadness & SILENCE

The loss & violence in Orlando this week is unbearable.  I was once watching an interview with today’s artist in which he was trying to speak to his inspiration, his inner voice.  He said,”I represent this world, this culture.”  I heard this and wondered about the world of which he spoke, this world of children in arresting situations, and hoped his work wasn’t REALLY representative of the world.  I don’t want the world to be that painful, that complicated.  But it is.  I love this work.  I will always love this work.  Today, I wish it didn’t feels quite so real. Today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Gehard Demetz has put a face on our world today.  (continues below)
