What’s your favorite edible flower?  Most of us have had a lilac or rose petal infused whipped cream.  But I want to encourage you to try a little Calendula in place of saffron or peppery Nasturtium salad.  Just remember that blooms used in cooking must be orgainic–no exceptions.  Also, be sure to wash them well to remove all traces of fertilizers like manure.  This next Call is all about blooms, edible or not.  Take a look…

with salt

I am addicted to salty crunch–but not in the way you would think.  It isn’t potato chips, although I do love them dearly.  No, I am newly addicted to bananas with peanut butter and chunky sea salt.  Odd, I know.  It was a happy accident, really.  We buy unsalted natural peanut butter and salt it ourselves.  And, when my salt grinder started acting up, I ended up with HUGE salt boulders on my bananas with peanut butter.  Now, they HAVE to be boulders.  This next Call might just appreciate my happy accident.  Check it out…

DARKER
the better

I usually like to get food as close to the source or source process as possible.  But, I cannot bring myself to love Mexican chocolate.  Most of the world uses a conche for varying lengths of time to incorporate cocoa butter within chocolate.  The longer the processing, the smoother the chocolate.  But Mexican chocolate is still often stone-ground which produces a gritty texture.  I am addicted to dark chocolate, but I want it smoooooth.  This next Call offers the opportunity for you to be dark and either smooth or gritty.  To each their own…

TROUT
trick

Fresh fish is so close I can almost taste it.  No really, my husband literally goes around the corner to fish for brook trout that my municipality stocks the local river with from the government-run hatchery to ensure tourists can fish.  You can’t make up a story like that.  Well, yes, you can, but I didn’t; I swear.  No lake trip necessary.  But a trip to the sea would make for great inspiration for this next Call.  Here’s another opportunity…

CALL for ENTRIES: Abstraction

parm & garlic

I’ll take the Abstracted Caesar–hold the deconstruction.  I love it when culinary lingo takes a weird side trek.  Apparently the minute difference is that deconstructed food is technically a dish with ALL of its components separated.  Meanwhile, abstracted food features only the main components separated out.  Hilarious.  In the meantime, this next Call wants your Abstract work, not deconstructive work.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Santa Cruz Art League (CA) for Degrees of Abstraction.  We love this arts organization, and the juror has a well-documented personal style that runs contrary to the exhibition’s theme.  Interesting…

Abstraction

 

Moving beyond verisimilitude abstraction frees the artist from the object.  This opens the door for a vast variety of visual interpretations which indeed makes abstract art the most challenging.  The artist’s facility with the materials & focus on surface makes abstraction particularly interesting today.  But w/o personal content, symbolism or “event”,  it risks becoming conceptually mundane & void of meaning.

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to US artists

MEDIA:  Printmaking, drawing, painting, bookmaking, collage, photography & 3D

DEADLINE:  August 31, 2014

ENTRY FEE:   $45 Non-member up to 3 / $35 SCAL Members ($20 fee/box for shipped work)

He currently instructs courses at Mendocino College in Ukiah & works as a freelance illustrator & muralist.
