always GREENER

Grass won’t grow in my yard.  There are too many trees, too much shade & too much moisture.  But on the mountain slope behind my house there is a beautiful sunny spot that grows clover like a cash crop.  Have you eaten clover?  Oh my.  Of course you can make tea, but try them pan fried and crispy (just the blossom).  The spring crop is so delicious that I have dreams about those little blossoms.  This next Call would take clover too.  Take a look…

clean your PLATE

Eating is a roving action at my house.  Sometimes breakfast is consumed at the kitchen counter.  Lunch often ends up as a living room picnic.  If I’m lucky, dinner is eaten at the kitchen table twice per week, and it isn’t because I love eating on the go.  The reality is, my tabletop is generally covered by paperwork that should be on my desk or art that should be in my studio space or music equipment undergoing cleaning or repair.  Tonight it holds a prom tuxedo (don’t ask).  I need a more functional tabletop landscape –just like this next call.  The deadline is rapidly approaching…

soup to BEANS

It is all a matter of taste, right?  I know that for every food there is someone who believes its tastes better than all other foods, but I still can’t quite resolve myself to the notion that some foods aren’t just objectively bad.  Warhol is famous for, among other things, depictions of a soup.  That same soup is the foundation for thousands of green bean casserole recipes.  SOMEone believes it to be “Mmm mmm good”, but I am not one of the some.  I don’t have a lot of food limits, aside from Century eggs and boiled okra, but just no.  It is a black and white issue for me –just like this next Call.  Investigate this opportunity…

DEADLINE:  May 1, 2016

ENTRY FEE:  €20 (approx. $23 USD) for 5-10 works

AWARDS:  The Moth Art Prize consists of a month-long retreat at a newly renovated barn in a beautiful lakeland setting in rural Ireland, along with a travel stipend of €1,000 (approx $1144 USD).  The barn, which features a studio and living area downstairs and open-plan accommodation upstairs, is situated along a quiet country lane, surrounded by lakes.  The nearest village of Milltown, which has a shop and a pub, is a few kilometers away. A bicycle will be provided, and the publishers of The Moth will be on hand to take you to the nearest town for provisions.

We want it to be a place to rejuvenate and be inspired.

Learn more about opportunites to Move Forward and earning Brownie Points at AAAD - ArtandArtDeadlines.com!HUNGRY? me too

Because we live 20+ minutes to the closest grocery store, it can be very frustrating to start dinner and realize we’re out of onions or potatoes or eggs or whatever.  So, we are all about menu planning at our house.  This next Call is about planning as well, but it requires your input, your participation.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from AAAD for 2016-17 Planning & Progress.  We have a lot going on, and I need your guidance an input to make sure that AAAD heads in a direction that works for all of us.  I even formatted it like our normal calls to be certain that I don’t shake up the routine too much, ha.  Keep reading…

MEDIA:  Are we including all the media Calls you want?  Am I missing something?  Am I under-representing your media?  Please tell me.  I largely post at the request of jurors and gallerists, so sometimes I unintentionally wear blinders.

NOTIFICATION:  Now.  Tell me what you need from AAAD.  We have incorporated a lot of changes over the years based on readers’ suggestions.  And, I am open to more.  The site will undergo some dramatic aesthetic changes and alterations to the formatting of posts and subscriptions, and you can help shape that process.  The resources will remain the same, and you’re simply stuck with the food references.  But, I’m open to hearing you.  Email me, leave a comment on the post (link to comments at top) or reply to your subscription email.  Any way you wanna…

FEE:  None.  I am maintaining my commitment to NOT charge artists for use of this site. Ever.

Learn how you can help #saveERNIE!JUROR:  R.L. (Rachel) Gibson, continues to be the Editor.  Me.  Publication has been a bit sporadic lately because of events that left my family stranded in rural Virginia for a while.  Dramatic, I know.  I try not to publish personal posts often.  But you were so kind when I lost my father a few years ago, that I thought I would share.  Here’s the whole #saveERNIE story.  So many of you ask me if there is anything you can do to help out at AAAD.  There is.  Instead of paying a $5 Artist of the Day fee or the $15 Artist to Love fee, donate $10 to #saveERNIE, I will enter you for FREE in both the Artist of the Day competition & Artist to Love directory.  Plus, you have a chance to win a house concert.  Time runs out Monday, August 18th, so hurry.

SALES:  Selling art?  Yes?  YEAH!  No? Maybe I can help.  I will be travelling the country this summer giving career development seminars at Arts agencies and collectives.  If you have a ideas for someone that I should approach with seminars, including “How to Price Your Art”, “Creative Branding” & more, let me know.

Learn more about the Works on Paper exhibit from LBIF - Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences!LEFTOVERS rock

We intentionally create leftovers by overcooking dinner so that we have a few easy options for lunch on hand.  But, left over veggies that didn’t get fully used in salads or stir frys become the best fillings for spring rolls.  We’re a little addicted.  Have I mentioned that rice paper is my newest obsession? As much as I appreciate their function, I’ll admit that how little room they take up in the pantry and the fact that they seemingly never expire may very well make them the perfect bread replacement.  Yum. This next call wants your paper, but it doesn’t have to be rice paper…
