Storytelling: A Visual Narrative

Storytelling: A Visual Narrative invites artists to tell their most important stories through their individual style and interpretation. Your storytelling may be personal or objective, representational or abstract, and may be derived from a novel or poem. Provide us with a window into your lived or imagined experience.

Narrative art is art that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time. Narratives in contemporary art range from highly straightforward and factual to magical and fairytale-like. This exhibition will showcase diverse perspectives and unique thinking.

The Happy Sad-sack - Storytelling & Collaborative Practice with Array Collective

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe.

The Ghostly Commission

To celebrate the launch of the International Ghost Appreciation Society we’re looking to commission a piece of artwork to be unveiled at our launch event, and stashed lovingly forever in our archive.

As an open-minded and international ghost hunting society, we’re not prescriptive about medium or format. We’re open to poems, paintings, sculptures, films, interpretive dances and more.

The goal is to create something interesting, memorable and which can help define the identity of our nascent ghost hunting society.

The selected artist will be paid £100. The piece will be unveiled at our launch event in January 2023, which will take place in Edinburgh. As such, ideas from local artists are particularly encouraged.

Femme Vitale

Wavelength Space is an artist-run gallery in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, TN showing contemporary work by emerging to mid-career artists from around the U.S. Wavelength Space (in Chattanooga, TN) invites artists and makers to submit works for Femme Vitale, a show celebrating and recognizing myriad forms of the body, feminine experience, women’s stories, struggles, strengths, and transformations: coming-of-age, into new identities or life roles, into motherhood, out of youth, into age and time. We are looking for a diverse range of
perspectives/points of view/expressions of these topics so artists of any identity should apply. Open to all media.
