      Call to Artists: 3rd Annual Somerville Comics Show

      You are invited to submit your work to be considered for the Comix
      Show III, an exhibit of the best of underground comix art, in
      September 2001 in Somerville, Massachusetts, USA. The event, which is
      sponsored in part by the Somerville Arts Council with a grant from
      the Massachusetts Cultural Council, is being organized and curated by
      the Washington Street Art Center and a small group of comic artists.

      The exhibit space will be in Davis Square, Somerville. Smaller
      satellite exhibits will feature the work of specific artists at local
      café's to help publicize the event and create an atmosphere of a
      Comix festival in the city. Performance evenings by Comix artists
      will take place at the Washington Street Art Center throughout the
      year to build momentum for the event.

      This will be the third Comix Show hosted by the Washington Street Art
      Center in collaboration with Somerville comix artists.

      Past exhibitors have included: Megan Kelso, Jordan Crane, James
      Kochalka, Jef Czekaj, Dame Darcy, Brian Ralph, Leela Corman, Tom
      Hart, Sam Henderson, Steve Weissman, Greg Cook, Ben Jones, Fort
      Thunder, Ron Rege Jr., and many more.

      Guidelines for Submission:

      Please send, by July 20, 2001, the following:

      Examples of the work you would like to show: examples may be in the
      form of slides, books, reproductions of drawings, etc. please do not
      send original artwork, as we will not be able to return submissions
      packages (sorry!) Even xeroxed images are OK, if excellent quality.

      A brief statement about the work you might like to show and any ideas
      you may have for the display of the work. The exhibits will not be
      simply original pages hanging in frames on a wall; we wish to create
      installations that highlight not only the craftsmanship of comic art,
      but the elements of time and narrative as well. In past exhibits,
      artists have painted murals directly on the walls, printed their work
      on objects, created paper-mache installations involving puppets,
      etc. It is not necessary for you to have an idea for the
      installation of your work to be selected for the show; the quality of
      the work is our main criteria. If your work is selected, however, we
      will work with you to develop a plan for the installation, so your
      thoughts about it now will help us.

      You may also express interest in our performance events. puppet
      shows, poetry, performance art, readings of comix using
      transparencies or slides, and musical performances are all fair game.
      If you have something you would like to perform, let us know and we
      can discuss it further.

      Send your submissions to:

      Amy Walsh, 25 Glendale Avenue, Somerville MA 02144, USA. Do not send
      your submissions to the Washington Street Art Center.

      Questions can be directed to wsac@....

        Dorchester Fallen Heroes Memorial
        Boston, Massachusetts

        Response Deadline: November 26, 2003

        Background: The Dorchester Fallen Heroes Memorial Art Selection Committee
        invites professional artists and/or artist teams to submit qualifications
        for a memorial project in Dorchester, MA. A planning grant has been
        awarded by the Edward Ingersoll Browne Trust Fund of the City of Boston to
        develop a schematic design. This grant will provide funds for the artist
        selection process which will be administered by the UrbanArts Institute at
        Massachusetts College of Art.

        Project Description and Goals: The Dorchester Fallen Heroes Memorial is
        intended to be a work of public art with traditional sculptural elements
        to be sited at Pope John Paul II Park, a capped landfill located off
        Gallivan Boulevard and Highway 3 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. A
        preliminary location of about 1/3 of an acre has been selected in the park
        with vistas towards Milton with a backdrop of trees. As defined by the Art
        Selection Committee, the project plan calls for the establishment of a
        permanent memorial to honor firefighters, police officers and corrections
        officers, public prosecutors, and emergency medical service members killed
        in the line of duty. The estimated art budget is $150,000-200,000.

        The Dorchester Fallen Heroes Memorial’s goals are as follows:

        To serve as a constant reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by those
        committed to protect and serve the people of the Commonwealth of
        Massachusetts.
        To serve as a symbol of courage, valor, dedication and selflessness as
        exemplified by those who paid with their lives.
        To serve as a place of remembrance for the surviving families, comrades,
        friends and the general public

        Finalists will receive a $1,000 proposal development fee. The commissioned
        artist(s) will be expected to work with community and in conjunction with
        the Boston Public Works Department. In order to facilitate the
        development of proposals, the selected finalists will be given background
        information, site plans, and project criteria on which to base their
        designs.

        How to Respond: If you are an artist living in Massachusetts already
        represented in the UrbanArts Artist Registry, simply drop us a note (fax
        or email acceptable-no phone calls please!) to let us know you would like
        to be considered for this project.

        If you are NEW to the UrbanArts registry, we invite you to submit
        materials for consideration. Please send:

        • Resume with current contact information.
        • Up to sixteen clearly labeled slides of relevant past work (leave top
        row of slide sheet empty).
        • A corresponding annotated image list with title, media, dimensions,
        brief description and date of the work, project budget, and project
        partners, if any.
        • Additional support material, including press clippings or other relevant
        information on past projects.

        No faxes or emailed entries will be accepted. Materials will not be
        returned. Submissions will become part of the UrbanArts Institute’s
        Artist Registry for consideration in future projects.

        Please do not send proposals at this stage.

        Call to Artists Rise Up! Art, Sounds and Shrines: A benefit for the New Orleans Arts Council February 2 to March 2, 2006 The Nave Gallery, Somerville

          Rise Up!
          Art, Sounds and Shrines: A benefit for the New Orleans Arts Council
          February 2 to March 2, 2006
          The Nave Gallery, Somerville

          ARTSomerville and the Somerville Arts Council seek artists to
          participate in “Rise Up!” an exhibit that celebrates the cultural
          aesthetic of New Orleans. The exhibit will run from February 2 to March
          5, 2005 at the Nave Gallery in Somerville. In addition to a month-long
          visual art exhibit, “Rise Up!” will include a community shrine to New
          Orleans, which the public will be invited to embellish—with
          photographs, art, beads and money donations. “Rise Up!” will also
          include concerts and a Fat Tuesday pancake breakfast. 50% of proceeds
          from art sold, and 100% of ticket sales from events, will go to the New
          Orleans Arts Council, which has established a relief fund to address
          the immediate and long-term needs of artists and arts organizations in
          the New Orleans region affected by Hurricane Katrina. For more
          information about this relief fund, visit
          www.artscouncilofneworleans.org

          This call is open to artists of all mediums, including but not limited
          to painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation art, drawings,
          photography and mixed media. Both established and emerging artists are
          welcome to apply. 2-D work will be hung from moldings; artists must
          supply their own pedestals for 3-D work. We seek existing art but are
          also open to proposals for new art—shrines to New Orleans are
          particularly encouraged. We will include 1-5 pieces from each selected
          artist. Only apply if you are willing to donate 50% of proceeds to the
          New Orleans Arts Council. This show will be juried by members of
          ARTSomerville and the Somerville Arts Council.

          “Rise Up!” celebrates the rich cultural legacy of New Orleans, a city
          of stark contrasts. Over the centuries and through the wake of
          Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans has wrestled with great poverty,
          inequality and hardship. Yet despite such weighty burdens, the city has
          always risen up, celebrating life and culture in a way that is exotic
          and unique. The result is a heavy beauty. Of course, New Orleans means
          many things to many people—Jazz, the blues, Creole cooking, a heady mix
          of sacred and profane, Antebellum architecture, voodoo, Catholicism,
          beads and throw cups, breast-baring tourists in the French Quarter,
          Emeril, the mysterious traditions of Mardi Gras Indians, the melodic
          dirge of a jazz funeral, and much more. We look forward to your
          interpretations of our theme.

                The Real Colegio Complutense (RCC) is calling all local visual artists to participate in its second annual art exhibit. The RCC was created in 1990 by Harvard University and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), for promoting academic, scientific and cultural cooperation between both Universities and other Spanish Universities and Institutions. This 2011 exhibit is also part of Harvard's Arts First events. Arts First is a series of artistic activities taking place at Harvard University from April 28-May 1, 2011.

                Artistic Theme

                The theme of the exhibit will be "Spain". The artwork submitted must depict images related to the country of Spain, giving a view or suggesting an idea about its people, culture, history, landscape or architectural style prevalent in the country. Artists do not necessarily have to be from Spain.

                Media and Size

                We are seeking to display two dimensional pieces of any kind and style (no sculptures or installations). Paintings, photographs, collages, or mixed-media, 2D pieces of up to a maximum of 36" (including frame) on either side will be considered.

                There will be a reception with the artists on April 28 from 4 to 6 PM at RCC.

                Submission procedures and Deadline

Each piece will also be labeled in the back with the following information:

                • Artist's name
                • Title of the piece
                • Media

                Each artist will provide the labeling information and the RCC will print and place the labels.

                Liability

                The RCC assumes no liability for art., At the time of delivery, artists must sign a release form freeing the RCC of liability for damage or theft of art
