CALL FOR ARIZONA/SB 1070 THEMED ART - June 30, 2010
The concept of an America intolerable of immigrants is contrary to its foundation. A nation of immigrants is what we are. This license to ill (SB 1070) confronts Roland Barthes's "Death of the author" (1968) head on. In it, the author does not add to the importance of the text, image, lyric, concept, or nation-eliminating the value imparted on an object because of whose collection it is in. While this concept is used in contemporary art to bolster the likes of Warhol and Koons, this sentiment like Lady Liberty is problematic. An accurate discourse would reveal that while the bourgeois may appropriate and transcend their authorship, it is clear that this transcendence is not reciprocal to the proletariat. The proletariat/minority is required to constantly prove it is authentic. This exhibition is open to all artists in the United States, 18 years of age or older. Entries must be original work completed within the last 3 years. Entry fee.

CALL FOR ART ABOUT HANDWRITING - June 25, 2010
The act of writing a list, sending a personal letter and even passing a note have become few and far between in the digital age. An e-mail or a text message, however efficient, no longer hold that personal touch. Handwriting is so specific to an individual that this form of expression within itself seems to have been left behind by contemporary telecommunications. Writing style is dynamic: an unfinished work to be modified, revised, and shaped over a lifetime. Writing on the Walls examines and celebrates the personal idiosyncrasies of the art of handwriting through various mediums: letters, notes, grocery lists, and other organic print pieces that continues to exist despite today's increased use of digital methods. This juried exhibition is open to national and international artists (professional, emerging, and student). Open to works of all genres and media. Entry fee.
