Artists! Listen Up

There are a million opportunities for artists right now, so make sure to "Read More"!

Henri Cartier-Bresson, "Behind the Gare Saint-Lazare" (1932)

Newspace is asking for entries for their 2008 Juried Exhibition. The theme this year is inspired by Bresson's famous description of his photography capturing "the decisive moment." They're looking for entries that explore fleeting environmental moments that "change our perspective slightly... [as] we become witnesses to the gestures of time." Artist and curator TJ Norris is running the exhibition. Selected entries will be shown in a group exhibition, and the winner will have a solo exhibition and receive a $500 award. Entries from anywhere in the world, made within the last two years, will be accepted. The deadline is May 2nd, and there is an entry fee. See their website for more details on how to enter.

Next up is another juried exhibition, this one at Tilt Gallery and Project Space. The theme is open: Tilt just wants to see work in any medium that pushes the boundaries of its medium, and of contemporary artistic practices. Accepted submissions will run in a group show from June 5 - 28. Up to three images may be submitted, and the deadline is April 25, and there is an entry fee. Please contact tilt@jjfab.com for more information on how to enter.

Calling all Portland muralists! The gallery at the Olympic Mills Commerce Center (billed as the largest art exhibition space in Portland) is putting together an exhibition exploring the beauty and fun of outdoor Portland murals. You can either submit a proposal for a new mural (space for that is limited), or a photograph of your existing outdoor mural, mural-in-progress, artifacts from your mural project, etc. All artists must be local, and submissions must be dropped off between April 28 & April 30, 9am-5pm. For more information, visit their website.

Want to get beyond Portland? The Present Group is seeking submissions. They're a quarterly art subscription service that sends out four limited edition works from four different contemporary artists, and your work could be in their next mailing. This is an incredible opportunity for exposure - not to mention the $500 honorarium above the (covered) cost of producing your work. You can download a PDF of their submission guidelines right here.

And finally... The Children's Heart Foundation (Oregon Chapter) is seeking a local artist to curate their third annual PULSE fundraiser. PULSE is a one day art studio with a live silent auction to benefit the foundation, which historically sees about 400 attendees. They're seeking a curator for the November 2008 event, who should have a background in visual arts, previous experience as a curator, and "be a high-energy individual who enjoys interacting with artists, has good interpersonal and problem solving skills, and an ability to manage a group of 5-10 volunteers." The deadline to apply is March 28. For more information, contact Colleen Cormack at ccormack@earthlink.net or 503.740.6932.
