SCRIBBLES: Habits, Compulsions & Outpourings of the Doodling Mind

A line is a dot taking a walk.  — Paul Klee

Scribbles are evolving choreographies of visual thinking and feeling flowing in space. Scribbling allows something to develop and take shape as a becoming. Its nature can be chaotic, noncommittal, ambivalent, tentative. It can also be intentional, commanding, finished. It can be described as a flow of energy — mark-making forged into matter — that comes directly from the hand of the artist. Is scribbling where ideas come from? Is scribbling always germinal?  Is it intuitive and non-thinking? A random exploration? Is it play, or a series of what-ifs? Can it be serious? Can it be mindful in the most profound sense of the word? Is it uncensored? Can scribbles be a final product? Is it a way to access our stream of consciousness? Do our scribbles reveal something essential about us?

This open call for submission to a blindly juried group show of “SCRIBBLES” at the Carter Burden Gallery located at 548 W. 28th St, #534, New York, NY scheduled for June 1-June 28, 2023, will result in an interesting, informative, eye-opening survey of what contemporary artists are doing with their scribbles.

About the Jurors

Amy Cheng was born in Taiwan, raised in Brazil, Oklahoma, and Texas. She received a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA from Hunter College, City University of New York.

She has exhibited her paintings nationally and internationally; her work is held in numerous corporate and public collections such as The Hyde Collection, Glens Falls, NY, New York University Langone Medical Center, Sheraton Hotels, Brussels, Belgium, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Philadelphia, PA and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Collegeville, PA. To date she has completed a dozen public art commissions including projects at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the Howard St. El Station, Chicago, IL, the 25th Avenue Subway Station, Brooklyn, NY, the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport MetroLink Station, and the Jacksonville Airport, FL.

She received a Fulbright Teaching Fellowship to Renmin University of China, Beijing in Spring 2017, a 10-month artist residency at P.S. 122 Painting Center in New York City in 2011-12, and a Senior Lecture/Research Fulbright fellowship to Brazil in Fall 2008. She has been awarded two New York Foundation for the Arts Painting Fellowships, and an Arts International travel grant to China. She is a Professor Emerita in the Art Department at the State University of New York at New Paltz.

Lois Bender holds an MFA from Boston University, and a B.A. from Hunter College, City University of New York. Her art practice interprets nature and botanical themes using painting, mixed media, and printmaking. She is represented by Sara Nightingale Gallery in Sag Harbor, NY.

She has held art residencies at Skowhegan, Women’s Studio Workshop, and CAMAC (France).

She began her career as an advertising art director on national brands like Godiva Chocolates before creating her own gift industry art design company GardenSpiritsNY. She has also created nature-inspired retail product designs for the NY Botanical Garden in The Bronx.

The constraints of the Covid pandemic inspired her to conceive and direct an online Curatorial Program for the New York Artists Circle that includes the exhibitions “Lost and Found,” and “I Dreamed a Garden…” She has taught as a Lecturer in the Art Department at Essex County College, Newark, NJ. She teaches art workshops year-round in the Hamptons at sites like Bridge Gardens, Bridgehampton; LongHouse, East Hampton; and Southampton Art Center.
