CALL FOR VISUALIZATION OF THE WRITTEN WORD - November 13, 2008
"Clamoring to Become Visible" - whether appropriated from popular culture, literary passages, or purposefully written by an individual artist, the utilization of language within the realm of contemporary visual arts presents specific challenges, both aesthetic and conceptual. The ability of the viewer to process the content of the written word is starkly different from the more visceral capacity to absorb the visual nature of art. It is this dichotomy that imbues text-based art with a limitless number of possibilities to reach its viewer on various intellectual and intuitive levels. BAC Gallery invites two-dimensional artists working in photography, painting, drawing and mixed media to apply. No entry fee.

CALL FOR SHOE-THEMED WRITING/ART - June 1, 2008
Hipsters, artists, musicians, political figures, scientists, mothers. The examples of people and their shoes are endless. Yet still, no matter how fascinating the adventures of their shoes are, it's all worth nothing without the story of the owner. And this is the content of the book I'm creating. So, if you have a pair of shoes that mean something to you, that have a story behind them, I'd like you to take an interesting picture of the shoe (in whatever setting you think is applicable). Then, write a short story about why the shoe is important, or make a poem, or a song... whatever you want. I want the content of the book to be as varied and universal as possible. In your e-mails, you may also leave your name and whatever other information you'd like to be included on your page. If you wish for this info to not be put in the book, that's fine too. I appreciate your help and look forward to seeing some interesting submissions.
