CALL for ENTRIES: Female Spirit

2015 May 6

Learn more from the R Dixon Gallery!pink SUCKS

Did you know straws are a “girl thing”?  Me neither.  While grabbing a quick snack while shopping last week, a server looked at my son and husband and said, “I know straws are a girl thing, but I brought them for you guys too.”  Have I missed out on some American sub-culture subtlety about beverage consumption along the way?  I’m not certain how a straw can embody the female spirit; however, this next Call is asking for art that does just that.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the R. Dixon Gallery (Seneca Falls, NY) for By and About Women: celebrating the female spirit.  Deadline looming & this Call is NOT limited to female artists.  Consider a new gallery…

Do you peel tomatoes?  I have a friend that doesn’t like “edges” on her food.  No joke.  She does the standard stuff like no crust on bread, but she also peels EVERY fruit & vegetable–strawberries, grapes, and yes, even tomatoes.  I peel kiwi, bananas & canteloupe, but some stuff really is just easier to eat.  Is it just me?  This next Call wants ALL your edges (and curves)Take a look…

MEDIA:  2D art (no larger than 32″ x 44″) & small 3D art (no larger than 14″ x 10″ x 8″)

JUROR:  Terri Lloyd is a San Francisco Bay Area transplant who has called Los Angeles home since 1980.  Under the influence of a Sixties latch-key-kid youth, the circumstances of a working class life did not provide the conventional means to an art education or experience.  Introduced to the Apple computer in the 1980s, a love affair with digital technology was born.  Lloyd’s career has been a two-pronged path between fine & commercial arts.

In 2010, Lloyd retired from the commercial arts path to pursue a lifelong interest of fine arts.  She continues to become more active as a leader in community arts organizations and activities.  When not working in the studio, Lloyd runs The Haggus Society, a feminist art collective for women over the age of 40.

SALES:  The Haggus Society does not automatically take a commission; however, a small donation in the event of sales would be appreciated.  Please include this in your pricing.  If a work is not for sale please indicate with NFS.

*Just one other note.  I showed work in the first Edges & Curves exhibit after meeting Terri Lloyd through the Featured Artist contest.  Since then, I have found a community of creatives I love and enjoyed benefit of a solo show in L.A.  Now I am a lifetime member, AND they are lifetime sponsors of this site.  I can’t imagine not having these folks as a part of my creative life.  It is amazing what $12.50 can do.

More and more people are farming.  There may be fewer commercial farms, but I find that more and more people are taking the time to grow something.  Not everything; just something.  This image (left) is from the Facebook feed of a friend of mine in the suburbs of Charleston, WV who is sprouting garlic for container gardening on his back patio.  He planted tomato seedlings in between the sprouted cloves.  It isn’t a huge endeavor, but he’ll have the best salsa of anyone in his neighborhood this summer.  LOVE.  This next Call celebrates roots in exactly the same manner.  Cultivate this one…

“Curious about histories, origins, and the beginning of things, we ask emerging artists to probe their genesis – the dawning of a tribe, the annals of ancestry, the birth of a movement.  Those catalytic moments in time that give rise to new ethos. We also invite artists working with organic and/or sustainable materials to apply. Our aim is to feature projects born out of a response to horticulture, urban farming, and agriculture; or narratives that invoke our natural world. ” –from onthegroundfloor.co

I rarely drink alcoholic beverages at home.  I have a sort of daily ritual that starts with two carbonated drinks which are followed by unsweetened, decaffeinated, iced black and/or orange tea until bedtime.  It never really occurs to me to deviate from that norm except when we are on stage or out for a special occasion.  Maybe I would be more inspired if I had something creative out of which to drink, like the ones found in this next Call.  It isn’t just about pottery either…

So, I eat a lot of Waffle House food.  My husband & I are regionally-touring musicians.  As a result, we often need food at 2am, and Waffle House is the ever-available option–here’s one of a million Waffle House selfies we’ve taken.  (I think they should sponsor us, but no replies yet, ha.)  We don’t tour in the Atlanta area currently, so one Waffle House has remained elusive–Underground Atlanta.  We’ll make it Underground eventually.  In the meantime, here’s YOUR chance to go underground, minus the fried eggs.  Take a look…

Learn more from Whitdel Arts!an APPLE a day

So I picked a peck of peppers today.  Not really.  But I did buy a bushel of apples out of cold storage from my local orchard.  I just couldn’t wait any longer for a sensory overload.   I usually wait for the first bite of sauteed ramps, but that wasn’t enough this year.  So, I am home with a bushel of Mountain York’s.  This week will be filled with the making of apple sauce, apple chips, apple butter, and fresh apples in everything from chicken salad to peanut butter sandwiches and pancakes.  An orchard grown apple (even out of cold storage) is overwhelming abundant in flavor.  I can’t wait.  You don’t have to wait either; this Call is looking for YOUR sensory overload.  Love this theme…
