SOLITUDE

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Solitude can elicit either a sense of euphoria or peace, or a sense of confinement or punishment, while others are isolated in a community unit. As we move forward into the fall and winter months, and COVID continues to impede our movements and interactions, how do we, as individuals, or as members of a larger, even worldwide community, process these survival confinements? As artists, we can use our medium to express the inner joy, conflict, frustration, sadness or peace we find ourselves confronting. ARC is searching for your creative endeavors as a reflection of your process under the current circumstances, keeping artists alone but pulling together into a community. All media is accepted, including video, performance and sound; and all artists’ work will be considered. The exhibition will run from Jan 8 thru Feb 27, 2021. This time frame is equal to two ARC Gallery exhibition months – so more opportunity for your work to be viewed! 

Entry fee: $40 for one to three images. $10 for each additional image (lower charge for students — High school or college students can pay a reduced fee of $25 per 3 entries with $10 for each additional entry (Please include copy of Student ID)). If paying by check, it must be received prior to jurying.

Virtual Opening Reception, Saturday, Jan 9, 4:00-5:00pm

Exhibition dates: Jan 8 – Feb 27, 2021

Gallery hours: Fri – 3-7 pm, Sat & Sun – 12-4 pm

Exhibition contingency plans:

At this time, we plan to have an actual exhibition at the gallery. There will be no in-person opening, though we will have a Virtual Opening Event on Zoom. The gallery will be open with limited hours and visitor restrictions (until it is safe to do otherwise).

IF the city closes all businesses again, due to COVID-19, the gallery will be closed, but we will display the exhibition online, visible to everyone who visits our website. All artists will be identified, along with their work and artist statement; and we will send out a link to everyone on our mailing list, potentially 4000+ viewers.

The new (Temporary) Gallery hours are: Fridays, 3-7pm; Saturdays and Sundays, 12-4pm. Masks for all visitors are required and no more than 6 people will be allowed in the gallery at one time. (Hours subject to change.)

ABOUT THE JUROR: Danny Floyd is an artist, researcher, curator, and educator based out of Chicago. At the risk of confusion, his work seeks the narrow threshold between meaning and nonsense in text and images. Often at odds with neuro-normative conventions, he embraces divergent thinking through improvisation and the delightfully weird. He is the Exhibitions Director for ACRE and a Lecturer of Visual & Critical Studies and Sculpture at SAIC. Since 2013, he has been an active part of Chicago’s artist-run space community through two programs, Ballroom Projects and Adler & Floyd. He has held curatorial residencies with ACRE and Chicago Artists Coalition. He was also awarded the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation Curatorial Fellowship in 2017.

Eligibility:

In this time of isolation and confinement – when we can often see only a portion of another’s face – we are creating this juried exhibition to celebrate faces – and the people behind them. We would also like to examine the ways in which people mask themselves or masquerade. We are looking to define this genre as broadly as possible: self, other, representational, abstracted, likeness, current, past, psychological, emotional…

We are interested in all forms of mark making; and all media are welcome. The show will be juried by Dr. Kryssi Staikidis, Professor of Art and Design Education at Northern Illinois University. The exhibition will run from Oct 28 thru Dec 19, 2020.

What Are You Voting For? ( A Virtual Exhibition)

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

VIRTUAL EXHIBITION DATES: October 9-31, 2020

FINAL ENTRY DEADLINE: September 24, 2020 | 11:59 p.m. CDT

NOTIFICATIONS: September 30, 2020

JURORS: Karen Gutfreund + Sherri Cornett | Gutfreund Cornett Art

Exhibition Description: With What are You Voting For, we ask — in this upcoming election year, what are the issues that will drive you to the polls? As the United States becomes more isolated from other countries due to its own policies and the current partisan political landscape, the lives of its citizens become more difficult and even dangerous through the erosion of social, health and environmental policies and even common decency. There is so much at stake in the November 2020 elections and there are so many issues that polarize and define us: racism, Black Lives Matter, women’s rights, abortion, the ERA, intersectionality, power, privilege, the Covid19 pandemic, masks, the climate crisis, unemployment, education, health care, jobs, the economy, voting, surveillance, privacy, constitutional rights . . .

With this exhibition, we ask you to share your voice and your vision, and to respond to the issues above in relation to policies, decisions, laws, protests, your experience, and attempts at civil dialogue and protest. Consider our democracy and the debate over freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom to choose to live as you wish. Whether you lean to the right or lean to the left, show us what you think through art that reflects and addresses these complex socio-cultural issues. Art submissions can range from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and include social and political commentary.

Open to women-identified and non-binary artists from the local, national, and international community, Woman Made Gallery is seeking art that illustrates the issue(s) that will determine how they cast their votes this fall. This will be an on-line only exhibition, viewable on Woman Made Gallery’s website and social media channels.

Co-Jurors: Sherri Cornett + Karen Gutfreund | Gutfreund Cornett Art is a curatorial partnership that specializes in creating exhibitions in venues around the U.S. on themes of “art as activism” to stimulate dialog, raise consciousness and create social change. https://www.gutfreundcornettart.com/about-us.html
