Flagstaff Arts Council - Photography That Matters

Billions of images are created and disseminated daily through social media, television, print, and film, all competing for attention. Navigating and consuming media can mean an overwhelming barrage of images and information.
     Sometimes, though, images of true import cut through the noise, helping us better understand our world: an image of a place threatened by development or industry, for example, an endangered species in its natural habitat, protests happening around the world, people implementing change in a specific area, or an image that leaves a lasting impact because of who, or what, it captures.
     The Flagstaff Arts Council is seeking submissions for an exhibition of high quality artistic black and white photographs that matter. Images should cause the viewer to think, feel, or act.

SculptFest 2017 - "The State of Hope"

Artists and artist teams are invited to submit proposals for sculpture, installation, video or performance to be exhibited on the historic grounds of the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in West Rutland, Vermont.
In recent history hope has been the apex political rhetoric. What does it mean to us now? How can we resist mounting despair? Hope in dark times is more vital than hope in times of prosperity. Without it there can be no action. In times like these, artists have a responsibility to push forward.
By examining hope from all possible angles we will seek to gain forward momentum. One of art’s fundamental purposes is to reorient us in relation to the world, to each other and to ourselves. It is a method re-thinking the status quo. It is a research practice based on exploration and an opportunity to illuminate aspects of our society and by so doing alter our collective experience. Perhaps it can teach us new ways to hope. Now more than ever rethinking is key to our collective survival. Now more than ever we need artists to reorient us to our humanity.
Proposals should include: A one-page project description, sketches, photos or other visual representations of proposed project; Artist’s resume; Up to 10 images of previous works (emphasis on site-specific); Artist statement

Everyone loves comic book superheroes, so both cast and audience will love this action-packed spoof of the comic book genre complete with hysterical singing superheroes and dancing villains.  Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist and create heroes and villains for the comic books he loves so much.  As the janitor at Wonder Comics, he anxiously awaits the day that his boss, D.C.  Wunderman, will see his drawings and give him the chance to have his superheroes come alive on the printed page.  Stanley’s heroes come alive, all right — but not on the printed page!
