      Call for Entries for its Confessions exhibition at the Orange County Center
      for Contemporary Art (OCCCA). The exhibition is open to all artists in all
      media. The OCCCA is located in the heart of the Artists Village, 117 N. Sycamore
      (at Second Street), Santa Ana, CA 92701, 714.667.1517 occca@...
      www.occca.org

      Jurors' Statement: Confession is often a reference to wrongdoing or the
      concept of "sin," but in the broader context, confessions can be any revelation.
      We are looking for work that discloses or reveals something about the creator,
      or perhaps about the process of confessing. The "act" of confession allows one
      to examine something that has been hidden. We hide things because we feel
      ashamed or inadequate & this causes psychic blockage. By re-introducing them
      later in our lives we can re-examine experiences with maturity - hopefully to
      release them & the stress they cause.

      Jurors Nancy Harlan & Pamela Grau Twena invite artists to submit work that
      might not be able to be shown anywhere else. The jurors are hoping to see work
      that speaks to the personal, to the artist & the act of creating & revealing.
      OCCCA is devoted to the development & exploration of ideas in contemporary art
      in an atmosphere that promotes experimentation & risk-taking, without
      censorship.

      envelope to OCCCA.

      DejaDesign Gallery OFF THE WALL/2 show set: free canvasses & exposure: Dear
      Artists, some of you participated in, read about or came to the first billboard
      art show sponsored by DejaDesign last year entitled OFF THE WALL. The show
      got a large write-up in the weekend section of the LA Times (April 21, `05)
      over four hundred people attended & ultimately $8000.00 worth of recycled
      billboard art pieces were sold. I am now in the process of creating OFF THE WALL/2,
      opening on earth day (April 22nd). To go back a bit, I make functional art
      pieces from recovered elements & Dejadesign specializes in what I call
      "eco-logical" art. The visual element of this is recycled billboard vinyl. Typically
      billboards are thrown into landfills by the ton weekly. To combat this
      insanity I developed a stretcher system for the material. The panels are generally
      4x4 feet &, in modules of 4x8' can become rather large murals. I offer the
      canvasses & exposure to artists for free (below is a picture of the gallery).
      Any work on the wall has a set purchase price, decided by artist & DD in advance
      (several have sold "off the wall".) Thanks success last year I'm now getting
      vinyl from the billboard companies directly. Beyond that my hope by show
      time is to have sponsorship for juried awards. While in the first show most
      artists painted on the blank back white side a major part of the focus of OTW/2
      will be working with the vestige of the original billboard imagery-in a sense
      not accepting the art or commerce question but art from commerce answer. Though
      OTW/2 will have many interior pieces, the show also seeks to turn the
      billboard material & staid gallery world literally "inside out" so a high emphasis (&
      juried awards) will focus on the exterior element. If the above sounds
      interesting to you please send some jpegs or direct me to your web sites.
      Canvasses will begin to be available by next week & all works must be received back by
      April 1. Thanks, Peter Schulberg, DejaDesign Gallery

      PS: for an overview of DD you can go to dejadesigngallery.com but please do
      not use that for email.

      Request for Qualifications: The City of Oakland, California, Cultural Arts &
      Marketing Division is proud to announce the release of the Request for
      Qualifications for the Measure DD Public Art: 66th Avenue Gateway Project: Artists
      nationwide are invited to submit their qualifications for the opportunity to
      create a major public art project for the 66th Avenue Gateway bay front
      observation platform on the Oakland California Estuary. The 66th Avenue project site is
      an important gateway to Oakland's waterfront, making a key connection between
      nearby neighborhoods & waterfront marshlands. Public artwork will be
      integrated into the planned bayfront observation platform in collaboration with the
      project landscape architects. The budget is $210,000.

      Applications must be received by March 29.

      A full Request for Qualifications can be downloaded at:
      www.oaklandculturalarts.org/main/callforartists.htm

      66th Avenue Gateway Project Overview: With funds authorized through the
      voter-approved Measure DD Oakland Trust for Clean Water & Safe Parks, the City of
      Oakland is constructing a Gateway Corridor from the 66th Avenue overpass to
      Oakport Street, located west of the Interstate 880 freeway, at the western
      terminus of Zhone Way, adjacent to Damon Slough in Oakland. It will terminate in a
      bayfront observation platform extending west of Oakport Street, beside an
      existing portion of the San Francisco Bay Trail. The Gateway Corridor is defined
      by the City as an Estuary Waterfront Access & Cleanup Project whose primary
      objectives are "to serve as a visible & convenient entrance from I-880 into the
      shoreline parks" & to allow users to interact with marshland edge conditions.
      General objectives for this category of project are the creation & enhancement
      of linear park & trails, surface waters, native plant restoration, shoreline
      access, waterfront park enhancement & public access. The bayfront observation
      platform will include a central space measuring approximately 100 by 60 feet,
      an ideal site for a public artwork that engages the waterfront, marsh & Bay
      Trail. The selected artist(s) will collaborate with the project landscape
      architect, The Planning Collaborative (Oakland, CA), in locating the artwork within

      Call to Artists: Hermosa Beach Art Walk: The Hermosa Beach Art Walk is now
      accepting applications for three dates this summer. The Third Annual Art Walk
      will be held on Thursdays, May 11, June 8 & July 13. The hours are 5 pm to 9 pm
      & the cost is only $50 per show plus a one-time $5 application fee. This is
      not a typical "street fair." It is a juried show & only fine art produced by
      the applicant artist will be considered. We're not necessarily looking for
      cutting edge art, but quality is a must. The spaces are on the sidewalk along about
      a three-block section of upper Pier Avenue, which is a "burgeoning" retail
      district. Ten feet wide by approximately two-&-a-half feet deep, each space has
      its own flavor as they are all nestled together in front of the existing store
      fronts. These establishments include a few art galleries & several
      restaurants that all participate by having wine receptions or "Art Walk Special" menu
      selections. Long known for encouraging intellectual & artistic expression (The
      Lighthouse, The Insomniac, Warren Miller Films) Hermosa Beach has already
      embraced this relatively new event as one of the city's cultural traditions.

      For more information & a downloadable entry form, go to www.hbartwalk.com.
      For more detailed information, feel free to call me. Peace, Dave Buckland,
      Organizational Chair, Hermosa Beach Art Walk, 310.318.9008 dave@...

        CALL FOR ARTISTS SUBMISSIONS

        The Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council is asking for artists to submit proposals for mini murals to adorn the LA DOT  signal boxes along Colorado and Eagle Rock Boulevards.   This is an amazing opportunity to have your work become part of an installation to enhance the walking boulevards of Eagle Rock.

        You may submit as many proposals as you like. All submissions will have identifying information removed and be voted upon anonymously by the ERNC Public Arts Committee. 
         The 17 winning proposals will then become a permanent part of the eclectic Eagle Rock art scene.
        To submit, please email christina.hulen@ eaglerockcouncil.org with LA DOT Art in the subject heading. 
        You will be sent a packet of information that includes the specs for the boxes.   Deadline for submissions is July 28.  

        Please direct any questions to Christina Hullen.
