Call for Entries: NETWORKED – SciArt Center and The Nook Gallery

“Submissions surrounding the ideas, functions, structures, and results of BEING NETWORKED are encouraged.

DEADLINE:   April 29, 2019
LOCATION:  Los Angeles, Calif.
Submission Fee:  $20

Networks are everywhere; the human body contains networks for vital biological functions like genetic signaling, cellular metabolism, and neuronal communication. Organisms use networks to adapt and thrive, such as the “wood-wide web” of fungal tree root connections. Networks are a hallmark of modern life, from the networks of transportation to the multi-faceted network that is the Internet.

Networks connect us across scales, geographies, and time. In looking at the systems of life through the lens of network science, how does the structure of a network affect its function? What can we learn from the networks formed by the forces of nature, micro to macro? How have social networks changed with the influx of communication technologies like Facebook, Snapchat, and WhatsApp?

“NETWORKED” will be on view at The Nook Gallery (Los Angeles) from July 13th – August 29th, 2019.

Call for Art – Artists for the Ocean, ASCI

Our immediate goal is to begin the online exhibition with a small, strong group of international artists whose work [in all media] can be beautifully documented online.

Deadline: Open

From ASCI:

“The mission of this project is to demonstrate how the arts can be an effective tool in raising public awareness about the critical state of our oceans, its role as the fabric of life on our planet, the plight of endangered marine life, as well as the “dance” of interdependency required to sustain its ecological balance… [or about the current imbalance and its affects]. The artwork should not didactically reference these ideas, but most likely will be inspired by some aspect of them and a desire for your aesthetic “voice” to be heard about one of the most important environmental topics of our time.

Our immediate goal is to begin the online exhibition with a small, strong group of international artists whose work [in all media] can be beautifully documented online. This “seed” group provides a way of inviting others to submit their work for consideration, and also inspiring artists to create new work, thus creating a cannonball effect. Growing over the years, we anticipate it will become a major online portal for this environmental [and humanitarian] cause.

Ideally along the way, the online exhibition will:
– become a physical exhibition
– inspire museums to select artists from the online exhibition for their shows
– stimulate science and art teachers/professors to share the artworks with their students for classroom discussion and student projects
– and hopefully, ASCI will produce a coffee-table book of selections from the online exhibition…”
