We are excited to announce Studio Montclair's third annual Greetings from Montclair postcard fundraiser, scheduled for December of 2019! Participate and contribute to the financial health of SMI by creating a postcard-sized (4x6”) piece of artwork for the show. It's fun to do, and your support means so much to us!

About the event: Greetings from Montclair will offer an opportunity for the public to acquire original, postcard-sized artwork for only $35 each just in time for holiday shopping! Offered on a first-come, first served basis, the works will be exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist will be revealed only after the work is purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a well-known artist, or one who's just making their debut in the art world. Everyone walks away with a beautiful piece of art they love! The opening reception party will take place on Friday, December 13, 2019.

Guidelines: Artists may enter up to three pieces of art, each piece must measure 4 x 6 inches exactly and be on a heavy stock paper, rigid backing, photo paper, or other similar material. If we can hang it, you can submit it. All media are welcome, including paint, marker, pencil, collage, ceramic, found objects, and textiles. 

Please note reproductions of original artwork will not be accepted.

Call for proposals: artCONNECTS - Montclair Mural Project

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

artCONNECTS is a public art project sponsored by the Montclair Center BID, in partnership with Studio Montclair. The placemaking project is funded by a grant provided by the NJ Main Street program and the Montclair Center Business Improvement District. Four locations have been identified throughout Downtown Montclair for original painted murals. The locations include a key alleyway, and walls at connection points where art can surprise and delight. Murals are to be temporary, with a five year expected life.

The theme for submissions is "Love Montclair." Artists should submit artwork that speaks to what they love about Montclair and this community (creativity, diversity, food, music, shopping, culture, family, streetscape, natural setting, etc.), and that serve to connect areas of downtown Montclair, and/or highlight the important connection between art and community.

The artCONNECTS budget of $36,000 covers all artistic costs for four painted murals and a licensing fee. Each mural is allocated a portion of the total budget. Artistic costs for each mural include the chosen artist(s) creative and labor fees, surface preparation, equipment, mural protection/maintenance plan, supplies, travel-related expenses and other associated costs.

Studio Montclair Call for Entries: Everyday Objects

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Everyday Objects:
Every day we are surrounded by objects that we have relationships with – physical relationships, psychological relationships, sensory relationships. These objects carry a history and a set of meanings that we sometimes share collectively and other times are extremely personal to our individual experiences. Found-object artists investigate these relationships; exploring the inherent beauty in objects and how these objects can have meaning shared by the collective memory of our culture/society.

The formal history of found-object art can be traced back to the Dada and Surrealist movements of the 1910s-1940s, characterized by the reuse of commercial imagery and appropriation of cultural iconography of the Pop artists, and used more recently by such artists as Carl Andre, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, and Willie Cole. 

For "Everyday Objects,” Studio Montclair is looking for artwork that celebrates the found object.  Preference will be given to works that incorporate actual everyday objects into collage, sculpture, or industrial design. In a more limited number, drawings, paintings and other mediums will be considered for inclusion in this exhibit.

Curator: 

M. Gosser is the chief curator and gallery director of the College of Architecture and Design at NJIT. He also runs Art & Artifacts of Newark, a downtown gallery celebrating Newark’s resurgence. He is the vice-president of Newark Landmarks, a preservation and community activist organization, and serves on the executive board of the Jewish Museum of New Jersey.  In his earlier careers, Gosser was an architect, urban planner, photographer, sculptor and installation artist.
