Woman Made Gallery Call For Art- Two Exhibitions in 2020

Suffra-Jettes
Exhibition Dates: March 13 – April 4, 2020
Entry Due Date: December 21, 2019
Notification: Week of January 14, 2020
Juror: Candace Hunter

https://womanmadegallery.submittable.com/submit

Exhibition Description: It’s been 100 years since women were given the right to vote in the United States. In this exhibition, WMG is soliciting work by female identified artists who represent the experience of being a woman and the nuanced (and overt) ways that being female supports or subverts your daily life.  Artwork should reflect your narrative experience – your story of being female.  We’re searching for a variety of voices to share triumphs and setbacks that highlight gains made or what is missing in our society in terms of equality between the sexes. What is your story and how is it woven into a struggle for equality over 100 years old that has only definitively delivered the right to vote?

We encourage entries of recent works in all media, but there is no restriction in the creation date. Applicants should submit a general artist’s statement. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG. The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver: [email protected].

Juror | Curator: Candace Hunter
Candace Hunter is a Visual Artist, Culture Writer, Curator, and Water Rights Activist. She creates collage, paintings, and installations that often interweave text. She tells stories through the use of appropriated materials from popular magazines, vintage maps, and resourced materials, offering them back to the viewer with a sense of history and admiration of the beautiful. Her mixed media artworks are sometimes applause and sometimes ranting about the effects of politics and history. By squaring off the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, she absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. This personal story-telling is important as an act of meditation and mediation.

The untold stories of enslaved peoples, of women fighting for potable water, of children who never made it home for dinner and never would again, of men sitting on death row, and of the girls of Chibok, are just some of the stories that Candace yearns to tell visually.

As plainly as the Speculative Fiction writer, Octavia Butler wrote, “I just knew there were stories I wanted to tell”, and, like Octavia, she is compelled to “write” these stories in color and shape and form. Visit https://chleeart.com/ for more information.

Exhibition Description: Oftentimes, artists pursue their unparalleled originality and one of a kind making process through their own inventive and unique adaptations of traditional techniques. The processes reflect the artists’ insights and experiences in creation, and it becomes a work of art itself. Other times, everyday objects and raw elements can challenge many makers to push the boundaries of the common perception and expectation of the material. It is also through the artists’ eyes that we see the hidden potential of the material.

Open to all artists, Woman Made Gallery is inviting artwork that is either made with unique materials, and/or unconventional methods of application. This exhibition will highlight both the artists’ innovative applications in fabrication, and pioneering approaches to the materials to cultivate the communication between each artist’s creative practice and their experimentation with the materials’ limit. All submissions should include a brief statement that includes details on material and process.

We like to receive entries of recent works, but there is no restriction in the creation date. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG. The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver: [email protected].

Dear Arts Advocate,

Last Thursday December 5th, the Arts Action Fund kicked off its Year-End Fundraising Campaign to raise $30,000 by the end of the year.

We’ve already raised one-third of that goal from members like you!  In fact, I am contributing $5,000 personally to the Arts Action Fund PAC.  These funds go exclusively to the only political action committee in the country dedicated to supporting pro-arts federal candidates, who are committed to advancing the nonprofit arts in America. Additionally, I’m making a second contribution to the Arts Action Fund to carry out its grassroots activities to train arts advocates across the nation.

Attached below is a copy of the email that our Executive Director Nina Ozlu Tunceli sent you last Thursday.  Join me as an arts champion. Please contribute to the Arts Action Fund today.

Thank you for your commitment to the arts in America.

Dear Arts Advocate,

Contribute to The Arts Action Fund’s Year-End Campaign this Holiday Season!

Thanks to members like you, we’ve had another effective legislative year in securing an increase in funding for the arts and humanities! We kicked off the ArtsVote 2020 campaign by interviewing presidential candidates such as Mayor Pete Buttigieg in our ArtsVote 2020 podcast with Ben Folds. In addition, we’ve been training grassroots arts advocates in Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and North Carolina on how to ask key arts questions to presidential candidates campaigning in these early battleground states. Help us move into 2020 stronger than ever!

Will you make a year-end financial contribution to our ArtsVote campaign to help elevate the power of the arts as we fully enter the 2020 election year?

You can help stand up for the arts by:

  1. Contributing to our 2019 Year-End Campaign
  2. Using our Questions to Ask Pocket Card
  3. Signing and Sharing Our Arts Platform Petition

We can only succeed with your unwavering support. Keep the momentum going by being an ArtsVote champion today!

Make Your Year-End Gift to The Arts Action Fund by December 31, 2019.

Thank you for your generosity and have a happy holiday season!

Nina Ozlu Tunceli

Shepherd’s Dream

Rogue Valley and Beyond

Pat Moore has been an avid photographer for 35+ years, and brings his keen eye for the processes of nature to his craft.  His approach reflects two essential aspects of his personal history:  early exposure to urban cultures and architecture, together with two decades as an organic farmer.  This appreciation led him to wilderness areas at home and abroad.  These elements are apparent in the works that Pat shares with the world.

Studio 151

Featuring Kaho Koinuma – Mandala art

First Friday in December at the studio features a joint show of mixed media figures and wall art by Elizabeth York and works by guest artist, Kaho Koinuma. Kaho is a Mandala artist who draws directly from the heart. Her sacred mandalas are expressions of love filled with prayers for each and every being to awaken to the essence of the heart and for all experiences to be pathways home to love. Many have found inner guidance and healing through meditating and contemplating her mandalas.

Prior to 2006, Kaho had no experience in fine art, but with a sudden inspiration from the universe through a Japanese artist, the mandalas started to appear as answers to her heart’s calling.

Before becoming a mandala artist, Kaho was a competitive figure skater and coach for 30 years. This experience prepared her for the focus and discipline it takes to infuse the dots and shapes that appear in each mandala with universal love.

Her work has been the subject of several articles, including a feature article in Hado magazine in which Kaho was interviewed by Dr. Masaru Emoto, author of the best-selling book “The Hidden Messages in Water.”

Since early 2007, Kaho has been exhibiting her mandalas and offering meditations, workshops and retreats in support of all beings to discover peace, love and true happiness, within the core of his/her own heart.

The studio will be open on First Friday, 12/6 from 5-8.

Oil Paintings by David William Terry

Artist David William Terry has been a professional artist since 1981. He specializes in oil paintings, particularly portraits. He has won awards for his paintings in a number of national and international juried exhibits.

David’s paintings portray his simple desire to share what he considers beautiful.

He is less concerned with originality or style, than with capturing the essential character of his subjects, whether they are people or waterfalls.

Originally from Texas, David and his partner Francesca came to the Rogue Valley in 2015. They currently live in Jacksonville.

 

David’s paintings will be on display through the end of January

Trace West Announces New Furniture Series “STATERA”

Grand Opening Reception: Thursday, December 5th, 2019   7:00 -10:00 pm
Design Lab Talk: January 18, 2020 11:00 am -1:00 pm

Andrew Golish, a member of the American Craft Council, is the principle designer and founder of TRACE WEST, a new boutique furniture gallery located in Ashland, Oregon. The showroom will be hosting within the gallery scape a revolving series of contemporary craft guest artisans working in a range of various mediums including textiles, lighting, ceramics and other applied media. The grand opening for TRACE WEST will be held on Thursday, December 5th, 2019.

STATERA SERIES

The opening of the TRACE WEST showroom coincides with the debut of the STATERA series. STATERA, which is Latin for “balance,” is a new contemporary furniture design series featuring fine finish solid walnut custom coffee tables, consoles, benches, and end tables for living spaces and the work environment.

Golish states that the search for “perfect balance” motivates him to create cutting-edge, contemporary designs by integrating traditional hand craft techniques with new technological applications. The STATERA signature series offers clean, sleek lines with intersecting geometric shapes. The sculptural dimension of cascading, rich wood textures are central of these exquisite pieces and elevate them to a high level of quality and design. “Complex simplicity” aptly defines the STATERA series, an elegant balance of functional design and contemporary aesthetic.

DESIGN LAB TALKS

Additionally, TRACE WEST will host and present DESIGN LAB TALKS, an educational guest speaker series featuring contemporary design influencers. Future topics will include the impact of new cutting-edge technology has on design, the convergence of contemporary craft, and the role of contemporary art in the creative marketplace. Join us January 18, 2020 as Golish kicks off the first Design Lab Talk event.

ABOUT TRACE WEST

The TRACE WEST name originated when Golish journeyed from the midwest. Golish states that he “was seeking a more creative, open minded environment and community.” Ashland, Oregon, a cultural hub of the Pacific Northwest, represented the perfect location to bring his creative spirit to fruition. TRACE WEST has been well received by the local community, in no small part due to the company’s focus on locally sourced materials and creating environmentally conscience, sustainable furniture and decor.

Golish has taken a unique approach to the marketing challenge. In what is ever becoming a more and more competitive e-commerce retail environment, Golish has elected to open a brick and mortar gallery which will allow him to interact personally with clients on a daily basis. Simultaneously, TRACE WEST maintains and is growing its own online presence, through its website tracewest.com, as well as industry related associations and community organizations.

Please contact us directly to learn more about TRACE WEST and the debut of STATERA, the perfect balance.
