Open Call for Bike Portraits (Deadline 2/28)

Bicycle Utopia, a transmedia project dedicated to the culture of urban cycling, launched an open call for photography and “photography-based art” on the theme of “complete streets and bike safety.” We have no idea what “complete streets” means so interpret freely…but the bike part seems relatively clear.

The show, titled “Am I Invisible? A Portrait of New York City Bicyclists” will celebrate the diversity and unique style of the city’s two-wheeled riders, while “subtly” advocating for safe streets. So consider including helmets.

The deadline to submit is 2/28 and a portion of the submission fee (a wee bit steep at $30) will be donated to Recycle-A-Bicycle, which we presume does just that, by helping youths and such.

The five best images will be awarded a $200 gift certificate to redeem in participating bike shops and the final exhibition will be held on in April at the Old Stone House and Washington Park in South Brooklyn.

Submit here. God speed!

Attn Greenpoint Artists! Call For Artwork: “NOW” Greenpoint Art Exhibit (Deadline: 8/15)

Ugly Art Room & Greenpointers Present “NOW” – A Group Art Show @ Dobbin Project Space (50 Dobbin St) in participation with Greenpoint Gallery Night.

Opening: Friday September 13, 2013, 7-9pm
Exhibition: 9/13/13 – 9/30/13

There is never a better time than now, but the moving target of “in the moment” is ever elusive. We are often told to “let go of the past” and “stop worrying about the future.” At the same time we are told that patience is a virtue and that we must wait for the “right time.”

But what about now? What is now? Right here. Right now.

Now is a time and place. We are all inspired by our time – the year 2013 – and our space, which is Greenpoint, Brooklyn, USA, the planet. This will be the loose connecting theme among the artwork chosen. Special considerations will be given to works that consider time and place.

All mediums accepted.

The show titled “NOW” will present the contemporary artwork of artists living or working in Greenpoint – work that has been created specifically for this show or within the last 6 mo, as well as work created on site during the opening reception on 9/13/13. Progressions of pieces: studies along with completed work will be accepted. Unfinished works will also be accepted. Artwork will be created on site during the opening.

The show will serve as a “snapshot” of the contemporary art community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the year of 2013.

Submission deadline: August 15, 2013

Email the following to greenpointers (at) gmail.com

Subject Line: “NOW” (Your Name)

In the email include the following information:
Name:
Email address:
Phone:
Website:
Attach small jpg(s) images of artwork(s) for consideration:
For all work submitted include: name of piece, size in inches, medium, price
Brief summary of work to make for the show and/or during the opening (if applicable):

If your work is chosen you will be notified and must be available to drop off your work during the week of Monday September 9th and pick-up your work on September 30, 2013.
