Twelfth Annual Contemporary Art Juried Exhibition, Kirkland Lake

Twelfth Annual Contemporary Art Juried Exhibition. Presented by the Contemporary Art Exhibition Committee. Call for Submissions now open!

The Contemporary Art Exhibition Committee: The primary focus of this contemporary group is to hold an Annual Juried Contemporary Art Exhibition. The intent of the Contemporary Art Exhibition is to bring contemporary art to Kirkland Lake and the Timiskaming district with the participation of both local and international artists. The Exhibit has two components: 1. International guest artist(s) talk/demonstration/display and 2. A call for submissions from local/international artists as inspired by the theme. Every year we seek an international artist(s) whose work explores different media (painting, sculpture, drawing, or performance, etc., or a combination of them). The second major event hosted by the club is the Contemporary Art Fundraising Gala held in October each year.

Exhibition & Awards:
The Juried Exhibition will be held from April 5th to May 4th with the Opening Ceremony and Artist Talk to be held on Saturday, April 6th from 1pm-3 pm. A maximum of three awards of excellence will be given as deemed by the jurors (listed in Call for Submissions).

Please read the Call for Submissions fully for more details.

Mitch reporting from Passamaquoddy Bay

Hi folks! This is my first blogging notation. I’m a new member and happy to be included into your organization.

Yesterday, during a persistant downpour there was a moat around my barn studio as I nervously watched the tidal waves slowly rising up to my studio and shaking the old structure to it’s core. I’m about six metres from the water’s edge and this deluge didn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. Even a bedraggled, lone seagull was tapping at my window trying to get in out of the downpour! Now today, it’s sunny and clear, and the building still stands albeit minus a few shingles.That’s the way it goes here in Passamaquoddy Bay. If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it’ll change!

Call for Projects: Phénomena Festival 2019

We received the following call for entry from Les Filles électriques in Montreal:

Interdisciplinary company Les Filles électriques has launched its call for projects for Phénomena Festival 2019. Phénomena takes place in Montreal and offers a platform and laboratory to emerging or established artists who work with the unclassifiable, unconventional, or experimental. We feature works of dance, music, theatre, and the digital and visual arts by artists who question their discipline and are looking to experiment with new forms, in both English and French. After seventeen years, Les Filles électriques and its festival has managed to leave their mark on Canada’s artistic and cultural landscape.

We often receive project proposals from artists based in Montreal and we are keen on receiving proposals by artists from other Canadian provinces.

Yogen Früz Pinkberry Brain Project – Call for Entries 2019

http://www.brainproject.ca/create-a-brain/

The Yogen Früz Pinkberry Brain Project is the Toronto art installation that took the city by storm in the summers of 2016, 2017 and 2018. Brain sculptures designed by a diverse group of artists were placed on display in high-traffic areas such as Nathan Phillips Square and the Distillery District.

Now, we’re getting ready to begin creating for 2019. We want to know what’s in your brain! In the summer of 2019 we will be beautifying our streetscapes by placing another set of unique sculptures on display, and we’re calling all artists to submit their concepts for consideration.
