PROJECT SUMMARY – ARTAROUND ROSWELL 2021

Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, Georgia invites artists to submit proposals of existing and new outdoor art works for consideration for ArtAround Roswell 2021, a Sculpture Tour; a temporary, monumental art installation to be installed at various outdoor sites in the City of Roswell, Georgia. Proposals selected through this call will be considered for exhibition during an 11-month tour from May 2021 – March 2022.

ArtAround Roswell 2021 showcases diverse and varied sculptural works, bringing joy, and improving quality of life to Roswell’s public spaces. This year, the theme for consideration for exhibition is about CONNECTION. Panelists and artists are asked to submit their proposals that feature connection –

For example:
• How does the art connect to its environment?
• How does the art connect to the place? Perhaps to history?
• What is the connection between the audience and the work?

Sculptures will be selected and installed throughout the city, including within existing parks and historical downtown Roswell. Sites may be publicly or privately owned. Existing sites and sculptures can be viewed at Art Around Roswell Tour – Roswell Arts Fund. 

This invitation is extended to all qualified artists with no entry fee. Roswell Arts Fund seeks to have a diverse and inclusive selection pool that represents the diversity and vibrancy of the Roswell communities.

Artists will receive a $2500 stipend for the loan of their work, paid in two installments ($1250 upon execution of contract, and $1250 when the artwork is deinstalled). All sculptures are available for purchase to the public unless otherwise stated but must remain installed for the entirety of the exhibition and tour.

ArtAround Roswell is a collaboration between the Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell. The sculptures are hosted by the City of Roswell, Department of Recreation and Parks and Private business owners.

Eligibility:

Mycelium are incredibly tiny “threads” of a  greater organism that wrap around or connect  into plant roots. Together, myecelium composes what's called a “mycorrhizal network,” which connects individual plants together to transfer water, nitrogen, carbon and other minerals that support life.

If only we humans had mycelium connecting us together and helping to link us in our growth and happiness.

what would that look like?

Eligibility:

ONLINE EXHIBITION OPENS: July 3, 2020

ENTRY DEADLINE: June 6, 2020

NOTIFICATIONS: June 18, 2020

(Please note: one artwork from each submission is guaranteed to be included in this virtual exhibition.)

Exhibition Description: Due to Covid-19 the theme of home is particularly relevant now. With the Stay at Home orders everywhere, so much of life is impacted. Home is often presumed to be a safe sanctuary or retreat that one goes to reconnect with themselves, but that is not the experience for many who face trauma and violence at home or who do not have a stable home to go to. How have the Stay at Home orders impacted this for so many people globally? How have they navigated resources and relationships from isolation? What of their physical and emotional well-being?  And what of those who cannot stay at home because they are essential in their positions or cannot take time off of work and keep their jobs?  How has this impacted their relationship to home and loved ones they want to protect there?

Juror/Curator: Jennifer Weigel is a multi-disciplinary mixed media conceptual artist. Weigel utilizes a wide range of media to convey her ideas, including assemblage, drawing, fibers, installation, jewelry, painting, performance, photography and video.  Much of her work touches on themes of beauty, identity (especially gender identity), memory & forgetting, and institutional critique.  Weigel’s art has been exhibited nationally in all 50 states and has won numerous awards.

Positive Emotions

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

PARTIA (Promoting Art in Aintree) at the Aintree site for Liverpool University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is currently accepting submissions to our new Valentine’s Day art exhibition of 2020:

‘Positive Emotions’

Valentine’s Day and the positive emotions that come with this special day are ones that are cherished by many; it’s a day to appreciate the love and emotional connections you have, and to encourage you to make sure you express these positive emotions to your beloved.

This art exhibition aims to bring abstract & figurative colourful paintings, prints & photography to the ‘positive emotions’ felt alongside Valentine’s Day. Artists can consider many positive emotions within this theme and their artwork. For example, depictions of relationships, love, desire, family, etc.

Unlike a traditional gallery space PARTIA welcomes a variety of work from established and emerging artists, and since we're a hospital we also receive more footfall than many galleries (350,000 people walk through our hospital every year).
