CALL for ENTRIES: Order & Chaos

2016 November 1

Learn more about the Order & Chaos exhibit at the Fred Parker Giles Gallery at EKU!PAPER or plastic?

Do you prefer boxes or bags in your pantry?  I like the structure of boxed pasta, beans & cereal, but I love the price of most things bagged.  I prefer not to store things in plastic, but I’m not convinced the process used to create cardboard is any better.  I own a lot of glass which inevitably involves breakage and the energy consumption involved in cleaning and/or sterilization. It can be difficult to distinguish the order from the chaos, but this Call offers us a second change.  Give it a shot…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Fred Parker Giles Gallery at EKU (Richmond, KY) for Order & Chaos exhibit. $30 Entry & a great academic gallery opportunity.  Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES: Stories, Parables & Tall Tales

2016 October 30

Learn more about the Stories, Parables & Tall Tales exhibit from Studio Channel Islands!DINNER anyone?

I’ve been eating with strangers lately.  That is, I’ve had the privilege of eating family-style  –from farm-to-table dinners with 20 at a table, or a restaurant with 8 at a table.  It reminds me of stories my grandmother used to tell of Sunday dinners in Big Stone Gap, Virginia, when her family, that included 10 children, would just lay a sheet over the home-grown & prepared food on the dining room table after everyone ate, just in case friends or neighbors dropped by.  They didn’t have much except a wealth of food to share. I love the planned inclusion of unplanned guests and the stories that must have inevitably followed. This next Call offers you an opportunity to tell your own story.  Don’t miss the opportunity…

ENTRY FEE:  $45 for up to 3,  $35 for members (with code)

JUROR: Often dreamlike and enigmatic, Christine Brennan’s work features a host of symbolic and allegorical reference. Brennan’s images draw from the unconscious, leading the viewer into richly-lit narratives that evoke personal stories and associations.  As a painter and printmaker, Brennan works in oil on paper or board and hand-colored linoleum block prints. Never setting out to illustrate a specific theme or story, the artist creates each image as she goes, changing and shaping it along the way.

AWARDS:  1st Place $500, 2nd Place $200 & 3rd Place $100

Long-time readers have felt my pain at the lack of ethnic culinary options in my little hometown.  But we HAVE recently added superb Thai & Indian food to list.  There is ONE really inconveniently located German restaurant –which is like not having one.  But, I still await Ethiopian food (never going to happen) & Hungarian food (craving hideg meggyleves, a chilled cherry, sour soup).  Soup is not the only reason to consider this next residency Call.  Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES: Still Life

2016 October 28

Learn more about the Still Life exhibit from Art-competition.net!goin’ BANANAS

The landscape of my kitchen counter is changing. My day is incomplete without fresh fruit. While the happy dance of the clementines begins soon, it is otherwise just the banana bunny hop for most of the winter.  I find that most in-season winter produce is either not finger food (cranberries, pomegranates) and/or expensive (guava, kumquat, kiwi).  So clementines & bananas still life it will be.  This next Call invites you to create your own still life.  Orange you glad?

Learn more about Valdosta National 2017!hopefully NUTTY

I spent 10 years of my childhood as a resident of the state of Georgia in the United States. Many of my neighbors ran cottage food businesses.  In the State of Georgia, you can apply for a commercial license to produce a limited variety of foods in your home kitchen for sale to the public — like breads, candy, jams, jellies, nuts & more.  This “maker culture” shaped my entrepreneurial spirit as a child. Kudos Georgia.  This next Call also hails from Georgia and should inspire the maker in you.  Take a look…

My first encounter with a peppercorn was in olive loaf. My father deluded himself into the notion that a seven year old was the target audience for this studded meat product.  I survived.  I love olives, and fresh peppercorns make my stock & dressings sing. (I still shun the loaf of olive, though.)  Both olives & peppercorns are perfect example huge impact in tiny packages — the inspiration for the next Call.  Take a look…
