Popcorn is now complicated.  I used to enjoy it from the theatre or from the microwave.  But in the continuing effort to eat real food, my husband now insists on popping it from the kernel on top of the stove.  We ran out two days ago, and after briefly considering experimenting with the .gif suggesting you can pop it on the cob in your microwave (don’t do this, btw), we opted for a bag of microwaveable popcorn left from a recent hotel stay.  Just no. Because Styrofoam, no. The next Call is Popped, sort of, & they don’t want Styrofoam either.  Deadline is NOW…

Check out this Call for Entries from Les Popped NYC, an Artist Collective for In a New York Minute.  $32 Entry, but NO COMMISSION.  The deadline is APRIL 9th, so enter TODAY…

Nourishment is personal.  Salt is a perfect example.  There is no other edible substance that I can think of that is more divisive. One simple dusting of salt can define the line between edible or not for a huge range of people. Be it food or artistic inspiration, how you feed yourself has to be personal.  What else could it be?  This Call is personal for me.  I have been hungry, physically & creatively; have you?  The show is short and simple.  I have extended the deadline in an effort to include more work from more artists.  Your support will determine the growth of this opportunity. Please make it personal for you too…

ARTIST of the DAY: Melissa Hill

2016 April 6

star light STAR BRIGHT

Some days are tougher than others.  On the toughest of days, I wish for the ability to see things through a larger lens, if you will.  I wish for perspective.  The ability to see things without the subjectivity of whim or personal tragedy or privilege.  Surely a different view would lend answers to the who and the why.  Or maybe just compassion and tolerance for others, for oneself.  The work of today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Melissa Hill, gave me just a glimpse of that perspective I crave.  (continues below).

"The Stars Remember Pangea" by Melissa Hill (installation)

“The Stars Remember Pangea” by AAAD Artist of the Day Melissa Hill (installation)

“I hope that my work has enough longevity and nuance for people to look at it and take something from it and for those same people to walk through life, change themselves, and then reflect upon it in a different light. I want their interpretation to shift and evolve as they do. I want this because in the end, I think that the act of creating and recreating is at the very heart of being human.” — Melissa Hill

My next kitchen will not have cabinet doors.  My need for symmetry & years of practice in downsizing lend to neat kitchen cabinets.  There are exceptions: storage containers whose lids hide like socks in a dryer and the lazy Susan corner cabinet that probably has unflavored gelatin from 2010 hiding in the shadows.  I am moving to an all new, albeit all tiny, space in 12 to 18 months, and all the kitchen storage will be open.  All light and no shadows for me.  This Call, however, wants both your light AND your shadows.  Take a look…

“The beauty of light never fails to inspire. It comes in many colors and styles, from the soft monochrome palette of the pre-dawn to the raging intensity of Times Square at midnight. Light can dazzle, light can seduce; light can be so intoxicating many spend hours attempting to capture its essence inside a tiny light-tight box otherwise known as a “camera.” Whether the photographer chooses color or black and white, the expression and compression of the wonder of light from our daily world onto a 2d piece of paper in a compelling way remains both the Nirvana and the great white whale of all photographers past, present and future. Studious professional photo-geek Ansel Adams identified 10 distinct “zones” of light from pitch black to pure light in an attempt to tame the photo beast; in his wake countless lives have been dedicated to the artistic pursuit of these 10 expressions of luminosity” — from 1650 Gallery

DELICIOUS

Do you own a food mill?  Think of it as a low-tech food processor.  I love them because it makes leftovers multi-use.  Run your chunky marinara through the mill for pizza sauce, while the food processor tends to make a watery mess. Baked apples, once milled make a great granita.  Veggies from making stock end up as a great, light sauce for a fast noodle lunch.  Your time is valuable.  Don’t waste it by throwing away the left overs.  Eat them.  This next Call is a multi-purpose tool.  Apply for one show and get considered for multiples.  Take a look…

FOOD

Time for planting decisions has arrived.  We’re probably clear of the last frost where I live, but now it is time for mama black bears and their cubs to begin wandering out of their dens.  In fact, critters all seem to be ready to get the season started.  So, how do I choose to what to plant?  I need hardy veggies that aren’t overly attractive to foraging wildlife.  Then there is what we have dubbed the fern-factor.  There seem to be some things, I simply cannot grow; tomatoes & ferns are on the short list.  Funny how gardens differ based on the gardener.  Thumbs definitely come in different shades of green. This Call for photography wants to see your interpretation of how the figure influences the landscape.  Take a look…

The relationship between a figure & the landscape context can be powerful. Landscapes are often presented as pristine places, without human presence.  However, figures within landscapes can play dynamic roles as scale elements, protagonists in a narrative, or mysterious presences.  Sometimes figures can ask more questions about a place than they can answer.  For this exhibition photographs that extend beyond documentation of place to bring a human element into the natural or urban landscape are sought. –from laphotocurator.com

My food preferences have transformed.  Years ago, I appreciated more complex, layers of flavor, intrigued by how accurately, or not, I could dissect the ingredients of a sauce.  Now a beautiful polenta makes my day –organic, hand-ground corn, homemade chicken stock & aged Parmesan. Simple food allows me to seek out & celebrate quality ingredients without the need for clutter.  This next Call is simple; pay the fee & submit a link. Easy…
