ART PRESENCE LOGOHello Artists,

The Creative Challenge Committee has been happily at work planning the next exciting October Challenge. Although the official call to artists will not go out until April, we wanted to give you a heads-up. We hope that during these winter days you will start percolating ideas and/or create the art pieces.

Remember that anything goes, so forget the rules. This is a great forum for artists to create outside your comfort zone. Free yourselves to try something new. Let’s make this the best October Creative Challenge ever!

THE CHALLENGE:
To create a Halloween-inspired or autumn art piece with a unique and unconventional twist. Each artwork MUST incorporate a MOON. It can be a half moon, full moon, red, blue, yellow, orange moon or whatever moon you desire to create. You can also incorporate stars, planetary icons, witches, ravens, owls, etc. You are free to integrate steampunk elements, fairytales gone wrong or your own fantasy dreams or nightmares. Think kitschy, edgy and get weirdly creative.

There are no restrictions on the number of pieces you may submit or the size of the artwork. Anything goes, wall or pedestal pieces and installations. So let’s get creating!

Watch for the official “Call to Artists” in April. We will be adding more fun elements to enhance the exhibit during the entire month of October.

Happy Hauntings,
Anne Brooke, Katharine Gracey, Margery Mercer, Leona Sewitsky

Plan now for Arts Summit in Southern Oregon 

As previously announced, the 2015 Arts Summit will take place in Southern Oregon. Now scheduled in Ashland on Friday, Oct. 2, the summit will be held at the newly renovated Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites. The agenda will address both statewide and regional topics.

 

Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites
One of the largest hotel and conference spaces in Southern Oregon, the Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites – formerly the Windmill Inn – reopened last fall. A limited number of rooms is available at a special $109 rate; to reserve call 541-482-8310 or toll-free 855-482-8310 and request the special group rate for the Oregon Arts Commission Arts Summit. 

Details on the summit content and schedule will be shared as it is developed.

 

34 Oregon groups receive $200,000 in ABC grants

Art as a medium to rally community around a shared need is reflected in 34 Oregon projects awarded a total of $200,000 in 2015 Arts Build Communities grants.

 

Vacant downtown storefronts become celebrations of community in Corvallis; youth fulfill treatment requirements by sharing their stories through pictures or performance in Clackamas County; and in Enterprise, Fishtrap inspires 1,700 people to read Luis Alberto Urrea’s “Into the Beautiful North” before engaging in discussions, events and activities that explore Latino issues.

 

Arts Build Communities grants are made possible through a funding partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

 

Read the full release.

A participant in Youth Arts for Change, a program of the Clackamas County Arts Alliance, learns how to make an original screen print.

 

Building Public Will research set for unveiling  

Oregon is one of four pilot sites for a national research project, Building Public Will, designed to explore opportunities for arts and culture to be sustainable, accessible and celebrated parts of our lives.

 

The research included a national survey with over-sampling in Oregon, as well as focus groups and executive interviews. It examined the core underlying values that people associate with arts and culture as well as the best ways to communicate those values.

 

A briefing to share findings and garner feedback will be held from 9:30 to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 18, in the Sondland Durant Trustee Room at the Portland Art Museum. Seating is limited. Please RSVP as soon as possible to Rob Sassor at rsassor@metgroup.com if you plan to attend. To join by phone, dial 877-868-6863 and enter passcode 905297#.

 

The project is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Trust, Meyer Memorial Trust, the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, the Regional Arts and Culture Council and the Oregon Arts Commission.

 

The other pilot sites are Michigan, Minnesota and San Jose, Calif.

 

Brown bag to address project evaluation 

Join the Arts Commission’s Deb Vaughn, arts education coordinator, and Brian Wagner, community development coordinator, for a free brown-bag event exploring arts and culture project evaluation from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 12, at University of Oregon’s White Stag building, located at 70 NW Couch in Portland.

 

Hosted by the Oregon Program Evaluators Network (OPEN) and presented by the U of O Arts and Administration Program, the event will include a panel presentation about three statewide evaluation and learning projects currently under way followed by a facilitated discussion. One of the programs to be discussed is the Arts Commission’s Connecting Students to the World of Work initiative.

 

Webinar scheduled for Arts Learning Grants 

Interested in Arts Learning Grants but have some questions? An informational webinar for non-profit arts organizations interested in learning more about the program is set for 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 19. Learn about eligibility requirements, qualities of a strong proposal and the new final report questions. 

Register for the free one-hour webinar here.

 

The deadline for Arts Learning grant applications is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1.

]]>
Editor’s Note: We just received this call a couple of days ago with a short deadline for short films – February 2. Sorry we couldn’t post it sooner but this is the first we’ve heard of it …and the first time we’ve received a call to artists from the White House!! So, all you young filmmakers, make a 3 minute or shorter film over the weekend and submit it on Monday!! And by all means, let us know if your film is accepted so we can follow your journey through the 2015 White House Student Film Festival!

White House Call to Student Filmmakers for the White House Student Film FestivalAre you a student filmmaker with big ideas about the importance of service and giving back? Do you know a young person who is?

Then we’re glad you’re reading this, because we’re only accepting submissions for the White House Student Film Festival for one more week.

Here’s how it works:

Any K-12 U.S. student can submit a film that’s three minutes long or shorter. You can read more about the submission guidelines here.

We’ll feature the official selections on the White House website, and share them across the Internet on official White House accounts. And if you’re selected, you might even have the chance to attend the film festival yourself, at the White House.

Along with representatives from the American Film Institute and other White House staff, I’ll be taking a look at every submission we get — and last year, we got some great stuff. Take a look at the official selections of 2014:

Watch the official selections from last year's Film Festival.

So if you still want to submit a film, or you know someone who does, it’s time. Break out the lights, write a script, get your camera ready, and show us what you’ve got.

You can learn more and enter your submission here.

We can’t wait to see what you’ll make.

Thanks,

Adam

BUT WHEN THE FIELDS ARE STILL by Whitney Rolfe

February is a special month because we are happily hosting two talented artists! Come by EdenVale Enoteca, 17 N Main St in Ashland, to see the unique artwork of Whitney Rolfe and Aaron Taylor, former students of Southern Oregon University.

Whitney Rolfe is a recent graduate from Southern Oregon University, and has always been an Oregonian. She has always had an affinity for both the dark and
the bright, having been referred to as a “dark rainbow” for both her personal style as well as her abstract art. Bright and whimsical paintings are juxtaposed with her small intricate black and white drawings. As well as making art, she also creates braid-in synthetic dreads, which you can often see her wearing.
For more information on DarcRainbow Creations, please visit: www.darcrainbow.com or www.facebook.com/DarcRainbowCreations

Aaron Taylor: Original doodles, sculpture, scratchboard, painting, ink drawing & screen prints/apparel 4 Artist at Large. Contact him at oneartistatlarge@gmail.com for more information on his work.

We will be hosting a talented local musician and a wonderful chef!
Kelvin Underwood will be here serenading us with his acoustic, alternative style.  Chef Daniel Gonzalez of Ashland Culinary Instruction will be here showcasing his talents with a food demo, where you can participate!

RED FALL LEAVES by Joseph Linaschke

RED FALL LEAVES by Joseph Linaschke

Joseph “PhotoJoseph” Linaschke is a commercial, portrait, and fine art photographer with a studio located on the Southside of Ashland. His clients include Apple, Mercedes-Benz, the artist Seal, the U.S. Army Reserves, and many other businesses of all sizes—including Liquid Assets, where this show is currently hanging! Be sure to check out their website, LiquidAssetsWineBar.com to preview his works.

This collection, “Fall Colors”, was shot in two locations — Ashland, Oregon and Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina. A departure from Joseph’s normal photography, this was an exploration both in color and in advanced digital editing techniques. While no image looks obviously edited or manipulated, the scene as you see it in the print is a reflection of the artist’s eye and memory more than the actual scene as anyone else would have seen it. These 30-inch prints are displayed on metal, adding extra depth and a striking richness to each photo.

Multicultural Celebrations
Paintings by Betty LaDuke

MALI MARKET DAY painting by Eve Betty LaDuke

MALI MARKET DAY painting by Eve Betty LaDuke

Multicultural Celebrations by renowned artist, Betty LaDuke will include small paintings (32” X 42”) depicting the lives of villagers from Asia, Africa and Latin America.
“I hope that my visual impressions reach out beyond the confines of national boundaries to reveal that in spite of our cultural differences, human survival is dependent on our ability to connect with one another through understanding and compassion. Bonding with my family and friends on a multicultural, global level nurtures me.  I have a need to continue sharing visually and verbally examples of human dignity and hope” Betty LaDuke

We have represented Betty since the gallery first opened in 1980 with many exhibits throughout her prolific career. Most of her exhibitions and collections are shown or owned by museums and she rarely shows in galleries. We are privileged to make this collection of *small paintings (42” x 32”) accessible to our community.
50% of proceeds will be donated to The Oregon Community Foundation in support of Rogue Valley visual arts.

An Anniversary, Edwin Dickinson, Oil on Canvas, Albright Knox Art Gallery

An Anniversary, Edwin Dickinson, Oil on Canvas, Albright Knox Art Gallery

From Matt Klos, I got the notice below about a couple exhibits of perceptual painting I’m heading down next month to see. The first show is a must-see, if for no other reason that it’s a chance to see An Anniversary, by Edwin Dickinson, which is in the permanent collection in Buffalo at the Albright-Knox. I discovered it by chance a couple years ago after having lunch there with A.P. Gorney. But since then, it has been in storage whenever I’ve been there. While down in the Baltimore area, I’ll spend some time talking with Matt about what went into curating what looks to be such a great show. Can’t wait. The announcement from Matt, including details on a second show of contemporary painters, including his work:

Exhibition 1, “A Lineage of American Perceptual Painters,” curated by Matt Klos 
Please join me for the Opening Reception and Family Program on January 25th from 3:30-5pm to see “A Lineage of American Perceptual Painting” at the Elizabeth Myers Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD. I’m really excited about the show and I would love to share it with you in person! http://www.sjc.edu/programs-and-events/annapolis/mitchell-art-gallery/2014-2015-exhibits-and-programs/
A Lineage of American Perceptual Painters, January 15 – March 1, 2015
 
This exhibition of American Perceptual Painters focuses on a lineage of American Realism begun, in part, by Edwin Dickinson (1891-1978), a student and contemporary of Charles Hawthorne (1872-1930), through the present day. Though representing various genres, themes, and approaches, these artists share a commonality which involves painting from direct observation. This exhibition celebrates a representational lineage that has persevered through the antagonism of the Modern era and continues to enrich the discussion of contemporary American art.
 
Artists:
Charles W. Hawthorne (1872-1930)                      Susan Jane Walp (b. 1948)
Gwen John (1876-1939)                                       Tim Kennedy (b. 1954)
Edwin Dickinson (1891-1978)                             Charles Ritchie (b. 1954)
Fairfield Porter (1907-1975)                                Eve Mansdorf (b. 1955)
Arnold Newman (1918-2006)                               Scott Noel (b. 1955)
George Nick (b. 1927)                                        Philip Geiger (b. 1956)
Lennart Anderson (b. 1928)                                James Fitzsimmons (b. 1957)
Gregory Gillespie (1936-2000)                            Neil Riley (b. 1957)
Gillian Pederson-Krag (b. 1938)                          Tim Lowly (b. 1958)
Rackstraw Downes (b. 1939)                              Gideon Bok (b. 1966)
Stanley Lewis (b. 1941)                                      Elizabeth Geiger (b. 1967)
Mark Karnes (b. 1948)                                        Sangram Majumdar (b. 1976)
 
St John’s College
The Mitchell Gallery
60 College Avenue
Annapolis, MD 21401
Gallery open noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m. on Friday before the College lecture or concert. Closed on Monday.
I’ll give a lecture about the exhibition on February 17th at 5:30pm and there will be a panel discussion with some of the artists on February 22nd at 3pm. All are welcome to attend!

Exhibition 2, “Subject and Subjectivity,” curated by Matthew Ballou
This exhibition will be held at Anne Arundel Community College in the Cade Gallery. The exhibition runs from January 26th through February 26th with a curator’s/artist’s talk in the gallery on January 28th at 11am, an artist’s talk by Matthew Ballou at 1pm in Cade 326, and an opening reception that evening from6-8pm.
I will have two paintings in this group exhibition, “Subject and subjectivity: a selection of perceptual paintings.”
Perceptual painters do, in some sense, have a mannered approach to their work. The mannerism is related to their sensing and becoming increasingly aware of the visual character of sensing light, form, color, focus, and space; these are the core subject matter of the perceptual painter. An area of light may become as dense and impenetrable as stone. A solid form may be seen as diaphanous as atmospheric space. These are but two examples of the syncopated intersubjectivity of our senses.
 
The focus of this exhibition is object studies – perhaps singular, perhaps in tableau – that are aimed not at the slavish presentation of the appearance of objects but rather find their true subject in the scanning, flashing, point-to-point-yet-all-over arrangement of visual and material phenomena. These works move beyond the notational or the schematic to embrace an experiential subjectivity. -Ballou
