CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

DRAWING and WRITING ABOUT DRAWING

 

 

CALL FOR ENTRIES

4th Annual INTERNATIONAL DRAWING ANNUAL

A Competitive Annual Publication of Works of Contemporary Drawing

and Writing About Drawing

Deadline December 31st

 

The International Drawing Annual is an extension of Manifest’s Drawing

Center activities. Its goal is to support the recognition, documentation,

and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of drawing from

around the world. A natural question will be “what is drawing?” and that is

exactly the question the Annual is meant to investigate from year to year.

Furthermore the goal is to ask “what is exceptional drawing?” Therefore

submissions are expected to vary, including a range of drawing types, from

the most academic to the most experimental, but all with some relevance to

the artists’ honest understanding of the practice of “drawing.”

With the inclusion of a call for writing about drawing Manifest eagerly

pursues a deeper understanding of how drawing is realized, discussed, and

interpreted in contemporary society. Works of writing will be selected to

complement the artwork chosen for inclusion in the publication.

Art on the Woonasquatucket Celebrating 10 Years as an American Heritage River

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

Art on the Woonasquatucket
Celebrating 10 Years as an American Heritage RiverProvidence, RI – The Woonasquatucket River was designated one of 14 American Heritage Rivers in 1998.  It shares this esteemed designation with the likes of the mighty Mississippi, the Rio Grande and the Hudson.  The Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council (WRWC) invites the public to join artists Will Machin and Gillian Christy for an opening of two new public artworks and a holiday party celebrating the Woonasquatucket River ecosystem and communities on Friday, December 12, 2008 at the Plant, 60 Valley Street, Olneyville, Providence.  Celebrants should use the Plant entrance located near the courtyard at the underpass where they will be welcomed and directed to the exhibition and party by our trained volunteers.  Festivities will begin with a press event to dedicate both new works and highlight Woonasquatucket accomplishments over the last ten years at 5:30 PM and continue until 10 PM.More...

The Woonasquatucket has much to celebrate.  Since it’s national designation in 1998, WRWC and its many partners have restored 52 acres of abandoned and industrial land to parkland, built the first off-road bike path in Providence,  set in motion plans to open historic spawning grounds to oceangoing fish by allowing them to bypass the first five dams on the river, held canoe and kayak paddles for hundreds of people, taught thousands of kids how to enjoy and protect the river, and transformed the greenway with murals, sculptures, banners and signs all created by local artists.  Although there is much remaining work to be done on the Woonasquatucket, December 12th will be dedicated to celebrating our accomplishments.
Will Machin will unveil his newly completed multi-panel history of the river, told in the materials of the riverbanks that will grace the Woonasquatucket’s first fish ladder at Rising Sun Mills, 166 Valley Street, Olneyville.  In this permanent riverside piece he uses glass, stones, asphalt and miniature bricks to speak to the ways that the varied historical relationships between the Woonasquatucket and human beings have brought us the beautiful and fragile river that we have today, with its blue herons, painted turtles, and broken glass. As a biography of the Woonasquatucket, the work celebrates the river as a life force strong enough to have been a natural resource and an economic engine, and to remain a viable enough ecosystem to respond vigorously to the stewardship the WRWC helps to channel today.
Gillian Christy’s “The Return Home”, an iconic monument, has been installed on the Bath Street Pedestrian Bridge located between Kinsley and Promenade Streets near downtown Providence.  Christy’s stainless steel sculpture depicts a school of fish teeming upstream over the Woonasquatucket, symbolizing the circle of life, the river’s connection to the ocean, and the ongoing restoration of the Woonasquatucket that will provide spawning habitat for 40,000 adult herring.
Funding for Ms. Christy’s sculpture was provided by EPA Region One, The Foundry, and the RI State Council on the Arts.  This work of art serve as a centerpiece for the historically neglected part of Providence that is currently undergoing a renaissance of development, recreational and environmental restoration.  The sculpture serves as an important indicator for the Woonasquatucket River, while on the other side, descriptive text educates visitors and residents on the river’s history.

Hive Archive hosts focus groups for creative women in Providence

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Dear Friends of The Hive Archive,The Hive Archive is hosting two focus groups for creative women who live

and/or work in Providence as part of Creative Providence: A cultural plan

for the creative sector. As you may know, Mayor Cicilline recently launched

Creative Providence to explore the strengths and weaknesses of the capital

city’s creative community. The Creative Providence cultural plan will

become a guide to public policy, private initiative, and investments for the

citizens of the city to build a sustainable creative community.

As part of this effort, The Hive Archive is organizing two Creative

Providence focus groups. I hope you will join us for either:

Thursday, December 4th *or* Thursday, December 11th

Both groups will meet at 7:00pm at my place (67 Hillside Ave).

I invite you to join us in this important community-wide conversation about

arts, culture, and creativity in Providence. We will consider what is

working and what needs improvement in Providence’s cultural landscape in the

context of the city’s current and future conditions. This will be a meeting

of creative women who live and/or work in Providence in a casual and safe

setting – please come prepared to share your thoughts, visions, ideas, and

feelings about our City. I will share a summary of our discussions with the

Creative Providence initiative to help define issues and suggest actions for

the cultural plan.

Both meetings will be the same so you need only attend *one* focus group. If

you would like to participate, please respond to

the.hive.archive@gmail.comby Monday, December 1st and let me knowwhich meeting you would like toattend and if you plan on bringing anyone with you. As you may know, my

apartment is small and and space will be limited – be sure to reserve a spot

soon.
