ARTIST CALL OUT A Clothesline to the Past: Rhode Island Takes on Brazil March 21-April 21, 2017, RISCA Atrium Gallery

ARTIST CALL OUT

A Clothesline to the Past: Rhode Island Takes on Brazil

March 21-April 21, 2017, RISCA Atrium Gallery

Monday-Friday, 8:30AM-4:30PM

Artist: Tiago Gualberto

 

The dialogues between the United States and Brazil are intense. They involve a shared past and common challenges for the future. In this exhibit, Tiago Gualberto proposes a conversation with the community of Rhode Island through images about the possible connections and disconnects between the two countries.

 

Gualberto is an Afro-Brazilian contemporary artist who frequently explores the fraying of identitarian, temporal and authorial notions in his artistic research. In this proposal entitled “A Clothesline to the Past”, the artist invites the entire community of Rhode Island to participate in a collaborative artistic experiment.

 

By his initiative, the artist proposes a showing of visual arts made up of multiple images that will result from his interventions upon images sent by those who make up this larger American community. Unlike traditional curation, this proposal will not be extended only to visual artists, but seeks to include any individual who shows interest in sending their images and agrees to participate in this project.

 

In order to participate, each participant should send maximum three digital, high-resolution images by February 19, 2017 to the following e-mail address: diversityartexhibit@gmail.com

All details were laid out ahead of time, my expectations as choreographer were organized and articulate, the dancers were such hard working and wonderful people to work with, and it was just an incredibly worthwhile and rewarding opportunity. I would love to be able to work with this company again and I cherish this experience.”

2016 NECF Chorographer Winnie Berger

RI artists – Travel to Tuscany painting scholarship for adult artists

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

An offer from Donna Drago of Cozy Holiday Rentals in Jamestown, Rhode Island, to the Rhode Island visual artists

Although we are not visual artists, after twenty years of visiting, the Tuscan landscape still inspires and fills us with hope each time we look out over endless velvet hills, rippling rooftops, proud castles and silvery olive groves. Because we know the life of an artist can bring financial challenges, we would like to start an annual scholarship for talented adult visual artists who may not be able to afford the accommodations cost of a stay in Tuscany, but who would personally benefit from witnessing the pristine Val d’Orcia landscape.

Painters and illustrators who would like to spend two summer weeks at our house in the village of Castiglione d’Orcia are invited to send us a letter with three samples (jpeg) of their work for consideration of this year’s scholarship, which will be awarded on April 1, 2017. Deadline for submissions is March 15, 2017. Email for submissions is cozyholidayrentals@gmail.com.

The winning artist, who may bring one companion, will be asked to paint or draw the scene or the nearby landscape that most inspires them, which will remain on display at Casa Castigliana. Transportation and other travel costs will be the responsibility of the winning artist.

Visit the website www.cozyholidayrentals.com for photos and information about the house and area.
