In 2017, the Keller Public Arts Board implemented a rotating public art program for outdoor sculptures in the newly updated Old Town Keller area. A $1,500 honorarium is available for each piece selected by the Board for the fifth year of the program. The City of Keller invested over $4 million in improvements for the Old Town location, including the construction of a linear pedestrian promenade, addition of outdoor seating and community areas and installation of 11 concrete sculpture pads. Old Town is home to an eclectic blend of restaurants and small businesses that attract a variety of visitors and provide great exposure for art in the area. For 2021, the Board will select 5 sculptures for a two-year exhibit beginning in June 2021. The Artwork will be for sale for the duration of the exhibit with a 25% commission collected by the City of Keller.

Southwest Contemporary Vol. 2: Flights of Fancy

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Artists from across the American Southwest are invited to submit their work for possible inclusion in Southwest Contemporary Vol. 2: Flights of Fancy (to be published May 2021).

“Flights of Fancy,” the theme of our next quarterly magazine, describes the power to imagine alternate realities, create fantasies, and entertain absurdities in the mind’s eye.

Over the last year, amid isolation, disruption to our routines and priorities, and a crisis of misinformation, it’s been harder than ever to stay tethered to what’s “real.” Balancing physical reality, virtual reality, and the unrealities unfolding on our screens and in our newspapers, we’ve found that we really live in separate worlds.

On the dark side, we live in a moment riddled with information silos, blatant disregard for fact, and rampant confirmation bias—where even events of the “real world” have required suspension of disbelief. On the bright side, we could all benefit from a healthy dose of escapism, an injection of magic into our locked down lives, and ideations of a better future.

We invite artists (18+) living and working in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah to submit work in any medium related to the theme “Flights of Fancy,” ranging from reflections on our current state of disconnection to wild turns of fantasy and beyond. Artists are encouraged to think broadly about these ideas.

Selected artists will have their work seen in a print and digital publication with an audience of 20,000+ people, published alongside emerging and established artists from across the American Southwest.

Deadline: March 3, 11:59 pm MST.

SELECTED ARTISTS

Three selected artists will receive a feature profile article written by an SWC contributor accompanied by multiple images. Twelve or more additional artists will receive a two-page spread including one image and up to 300 words of text.

All selected artists will receive a feature on SWC’s newsletter and social media channels and receive a complimentary print copy.

ELIGIBILITY

Artists (18+) living and working in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah are welcome to apply with works in any medium: painting, sculpture, new media, performance, printmaking, fiber arts, photography, mixed media, music, video, installation, and more.

REQUIREMENTS

Three to five artwork images, artist statement, and bio must be uploaded directly to the submission form.

Artists may submit three to five image, video, or audio files (no larger than 10 mb each) for consideration.

Artists must ensure high quality of images (we recommend 300 dpi JPGs), but they do not need to be press quality. High-res images will be requested once selections are made.

If video files are larger than 10 mb, please submit a smaller clip and provide a web link to the full file in your statement.

Bio and statement must be no more than 300 words or 2500 characters each.

IMPORTANT DATES
