About the 2023 Art Auction Season

The 2023 Art Auction Season is a mix of virtual and in-person events highlighting works of art available for purchase. Money raised during this annual fundraiser supports the Crocker Art Museum’s exciting and thought-provoking exhibitions, as well as community-building programs and classes.

The Art Auction consists of the virtual Silent Auction and the in-person Live Auction. Works selected for the Silent and Live auctions are featured in an exhibition that will be on view in the Museum from May 18 – June 4, as well as in the 2023 Art Auction catalogue. Works up to 80 x 40 inches in all media are welcome for these two auctions, and artists may donate 100% of the sale proceeds or choose to keep 50% of the proceeds collected on the sale of the artwork up to 125% of the fair market value, and proceeds that go above that will be considered a donation to the Museum.

BNSA is also a virtual auction that draws a large, global audience of new and season art collectors, but all works must be 12 x 12 inches or smaller and bidding starts at $25 regardless of the work’s fair market value.

The virtual auctions are hosted on the online auction platform Bidsquare. All in-person events take place at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA.

bildingship

Type:

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

“bildingship” is a working fellowship for young artists aged up to 31 years, to use bilding as space for their own artistic work as well as actively engaging in the regular workshop programme for the duration of seven months (prolongation to one year is possible), including part-time employment (maximum income 450€ per month). The aim is to convey the concept and working methods of bilding to the artists, while at the same time, imparting artistic processes directly to the children and adolescents based on the artists on-site work, to establish mutual ties and to promote and expand international discourse in the field of art and cultural mediation with young people, based on the practical experiences gained at bilding.

“bildingship” is intended to expand the artistic spectrum offered in the continuous programme as well as enabling a new artistic approach to special fields of art that are hard to fill on site. For bilding, young artists represent an important and complementary link to the children and young adults. For many young creatives, they facilitate a natural close relationship, which dismantles potential barriers in the professional exchange and provides a basis for an ideal working atmosphere. During the “bildingship”, the artist is given the opportunity to present his/her own work in an exhibition on site. This allows an expansion of the artists own range of activity, as well as offering the young bilding creatives an opportunity for gaining first-hand exhibition experience.

“bildingship” is intended to get the artist acquainted with the regional artistic and cultural scene while facilitating contacts to local artists. The aim is the use of bilding as a studio on the one hand, and an opportunity for artistic exchange with young people and local artists on the other.

“bildingship” is projected for the span of 7 months and can be prolonged for another 5 months
Period: July 2023 – February 2024

Location: 
bilding – Kunst- und Architektur Werkstatt für Kinder und Jugendliche Amraser Strasse 5a 6020 Innsbruck Austria

Call for Artists: HYGGE Art Exhibition

Keywords:

Artists on the Lam invites all artists to submit work for this online group exhibition, opening January 30, 2023

 

hyg·ge (pronunciation: hyoo-guh) noun

1. a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or wellbeing, evoked by simple comforts such as being wrapped in a blanket, having good conversations, enjoying food, etc.

2. a form of everyday togetherness; a pleasant and highly valued everyday experience of safety, equality, personal wholeness and a spontaneous social flow

 

We’ve all been there: trudging through snow, trying to shield our faces from wind so cold it hurts, questioning our lives and life itself.

One thing this pandemic has taught us is how to better appreciate the simple joys of staying in, being with people you care about, and enjoying art together, from watching a film to browsing an online art exhibition—really!

Creating interactive exhibitions—such as 2016’s acclaimed LEXICON and 2012’s acclaimed I CAN DO THAT—had been in Chicago artist and independent curator Jenny Lam’s wheelhouse. When Lam pivoted to digital exhibits during the pandemic, this resulted in such shows as 2020’s acclaimed SLAYSIAN, which not only garnered praise but also had outlets remarking on the very nature of the virtual platform:

Sixty Inches from Center: “Since she couldn’t bring audiences to see the show in person, she brought SLAYSIAN directly to audiences, transforming it into an online exhibition we can view from the safety of our homes. It’s now available for us to click through in digital space, where we are free to take our time and linger over the amazing work of all the artists she brought together, including extra multimedia content that wouldn’t have been possible in a traditional physical exhibition space.”

Winter’s Bloom: “Every one of the featured artists [has] a rich story to share and I encourage you to take a moment to sit with them, to share them. Just this morning my nieces came into bed with me, snuggling on a lazy Sunday. On a whim I pulled up Jenny Lam’s website and we spent the morning scrolling through the exhibit, reading about the artists and choosing our favorite pieces.”

South Side Weekly: “The digital forum offers the opportunity for at-home viewers to take part in this important work—to help these stories grow, evolve, and be seen.”

 

This new year, Artists on the Lam presents HYGGE, a new online art exhibition. Stay in your PJs, grab your drink of choice, and experience art, all without braving the elements.

All artists working in all mediums and forms—painting, illustration, photography, sculpture, multimedia, installation, textiles, you name it—are welcome to apply.

She is the Chicago-born Chinese American daughter of immigrants from Hong Kong, and she graduated from Columbia University in New York City, where she served as the President of Postcrypt, Columbia’s undergraduate student-run art gallery. She is the founder of Artists on the Lam, which was voted “Best Arts Blog” in the Chicago Reader’s Best of Chicago issue, and her interactive show I CAN DO THAT was named the audience choice for “Best Exhibit” in the 20th anniversary edition of NewCity’s Best of Chicago issue. Her artwork has been exhibited at places like the Chicago Cultural Center and Chicago Public Library, and she is the creator of Dreams of a City, an ongoing city-wide participatory public art and mapping project for which she was awarded the Individual Artists Program Grant from Chicago DCASE. Jenny has curated exhibitions at venues like the renowned Zhou B Art Center and guest judged shows at galleries like Line Dot Editions and Water Street Studios. She has served as the Head Curator of 4Art Inc.

About Artists on the Lam:

Since its founding in 2011, Artists on the Lam has been dedicated to championing local artists while channeling global perspectives, making art accessible, bringing people together, breaking barriers, building community, inspiring people to see the world anew, and demonstrating that art is for everyone. Praised by the press and the public as “a global arts mover and shaker” and as an enterprise that “keeps Chicago’s arts and cultural scene fresh, engaging, and thriving” and “embodies everything that we, in the art world, need,” Artists on the Lam has spent the past 11.5 years cultivating a vibrant international community across 177 countries and counting, connecting artists and art lovers from all walks of life. Artists on the Lam has launched the careers of emerging artists and provided a prominent platform for emerging, mid-career, and established artists alike, whether it’s through the blog that started it all, or through groundbreaking—and rule-breaking—interactive art shows in pop-up locations throughout Chicago. From massive audience participatory exhibitions like LEXICON, which was lauded by visitors as “wonderful training and exercise in the world of art appreciation,” to storied celebrations like SLAYSIAN, which South Side Weekly commended for its “role in educating and engaging with the broader Chicago community” and for showcasing “a subset of artists that have always been part of the city’s art scene, but rarely acknowledged as a collective,” Artists on the Lam has always taken pride in being at the forefront of art.
