Midlands #SCartists, let's start with you. We've covered this before, so maybe you checked this in previously and it's your turn to board? CAE is looking for artists for the 2022 Art in the Airport program: "Throughout the year, this wildly popular program showcases the work of four artists’ from across Columbia region in the busiest part of the airport. [Art in the Airport] not only enhances the passengers’ experience while traveling through CAE, it creates an immediate sense of place to those visiting. Once a traveler lands, these pieces of art are the first creative and cultural touchpoints they have to the region." This link will help you take off to the CAE website for more information.

Rochester (New York) Contemporary Art Center

  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE (Mailed): Tuesday, April 12, 2022
From an email to Hub HQ: "...the exhibition is our annual 6x6, which is the original small art phenomenon, and is hosted by Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo), a small, non-profit art center in Rochester, New York! This annual exhibition, 6x6, raises critical funds needed to pay artists, maintain our building and administer contemporary art programming to our community this coming year! The artwork(s) will help our mission to provide unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists. Learn more about 6x6 at roco6x6.org." The exhibition, a past version of which is pictured above, is scheduled to run June 4 through July 17, 2022. Artist participation is free, as one would hope, given that they are soliciting donations from which they hope to raise funds. There is a limit of four submissions per school or school group.

Open call: ‘Going Home’ virtual exhibition

"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home" -Twyla Tharp

Going Home

An International Exhibition Presented by the Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council, Wilsonville, Oregon

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Tuesday, February 15, 2022

If you could embody your ideal vision of Nest, Habitat, or Home in a single artwork, what would it look like?

The global pandemic has compelled many of us to become housebound for long periods of time. It may have distanced us from family and friends, or from careers and colleagues. It has put people out of work and exacerbated homelessness. How have the last 20 months influenced your notions of home? What does the word “Home” mean to you? Is it a place? A building? A person? A memory? An object? A story? A feeling? Perhaps it is a synthesis of all of these? Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis through February 15, 2022 and, if they meet parameters of the submission guidelines, will be presented to jurors for possible inclusion in a virtual exhibition. Some submissions may be printed and displayed in-person as physical exhibition space allows. No fee. Original artworks are not limited by material, but must be able to be exhibited as a single high quality digital photograph due to the nature of the exhibition. Please see the call details at: https://www.wilsonvillearts.org/calls-for-art

With his extensive background in the arts, he brings a unique, humorous and fresh perspective on the world of artists, galleries and the business of art. Geoffrey currently is a practicing artist, creating his original found material sculptures in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He shows his work around the United States and has also exhibited in China and South Korea. Over the last several years his unique sculptures have been written about in the New York Post, Southwest Art, American Craft, American Style and Cloth, Paper, Scissors. Growing up on an old plantation in the country outside of Baltimore, MD, he refers to a “Huck Finn-like” environment; old quarries, woods filled with animals, dilapidated barns and fallen houses. Geoffrey was surrounded by a wide variety of animal and human characters. Going to a variety of art colleges eventually led Geoffrey into designing and building contemporary furniture. From there he became a gallery dealer, curated shows, was an art consultant and coach for artists before becoming a full-time artist.
