Regatta Row 2022 8th Annual – Adirondack Paddle Chairs, Garden Art Story Poles

CHENANGO COUNTY

The project is open to all artists from the acclaimed to the amateur. Painters, sculptors, craftsmen, multi-media artists and other wildly creative people are encouraged to apply!  The Jericho Arts Council (JAC) of Bainbridge hopes to sponsor at least 20 juried Artists for a five week public sidewalk exhibition of art, where selected artists will be able to express creativity upon our unique Adirondack paddle chairs, and garden story poles, following our Theme “Regatta Byways – Scenes Along the River.”

JAC will provide artists with a handmade, unprimed chair or story pole (or up to three of varying sizes), paint generously donated by Golden Artist Colors, and a stipend of $130 for the adult chairs and $50 for one pole, $75 for two, $110 for all three.  Cash awards of $50 to $100 will be granted in five categories.  Chairs and poles will be picked up in Bainbridge, NY (unless other arrangements are made) in mid February.  Completed project will be delivered to Bainbridge, NY on or before April 23, 2022.  Artists will be promoted with bio’s on the JAC website as well as in a media conference, regional press releases, posters, social media and on maps of the Art Trail.  For five weeks, photos of each creation will be posted on the website along with the opportunity for bidding in advance of the Live Auction slated to take place on Saturday, May 28 at the 59th General Clinton Canoe Regatta.

Art will be displayed on Bainbridge sidewalks from April 27 until Memorial Day weekend.  Bainbridge, like dozens of other Towns and villages in this area, is attempting a grass roots revitalization of the community and this is one of the efforts to support the JAC.  Proceeds from the May 28 Art Auction will go to the Jericho Arts Council to support our Artists & Musicians and to create future events.

Passing the Torch Through the Arts invites you The First Annual Steve Jones Award. This special event celebrates two distinct art forms Visual Arts and Theater Arts culminating to form a unique evening that will surely wet and satisfy any artistic pallet on February 29, 2021 at Mariners Harbor, 1 Broadway Kingston New York 12401 (We have the entire restaurant that night).

At 5pm we open the doors for complimentary Hors D’oeuvres (cash bar and dinner can be ordered off of Mariners’ menu), exhibiting 10 Hudson Valley Artists who will display their artwork. All artwork will be available for sale. The exhibit will be curated by Sylvia Diaz, owner of Art JuXtapose, Arts Education Coordinator of Arts Mid-Hudson, and curator of Gallery 40.

That evening we will tally votes of the The First Annual Steve Jones Award – presented as a plaque and a cash award. It will be presented to two individual artists that exhibit exemplary commitment to their artistic discipline with a contribution of their time and expertise, and demonstrated dedication and exceptional skill in their field. We will present two awards, one to a Performing Artist and one to a Visual Artist This award is open to all artists. The cash award is for the artist to spend HOWEVER THE ARTISTS DECIDES to SPEND IT!

At 6pm, as the evening’s entertainment, we will present the new fully realized musical featuring superb local actors and singers. This musical is set in 1935 about local celebrity Father Divine who fed tens of thousands of people during the Great Depression. The musical features the music of Cab Calloway and Johnny Mercer.

At 7:30pm we will present the awards. We encourage all attendees to vote once throughout the evening. Votes can only be submitted in person.

At 9pm there will be an after party (the DJ to be announced)

We believe that artists are not honored in our society and struggle financially and socially, it seems cruelly ironic when we give so much of ourselves to enrich the world and are so active in the development of strong communities. After the passing of one of our original members, Stephen Jones, we decided to create an environment to finance ourselves.

We will sell our own art, we will produce our own works of theater and music and we will eat from that excellence. Every year at the end of February we will honor individuals that do likewise, that are motivated and committed to their art form.

We are asking arts organizations, or supporters of the arts to nominate Performing Artists in their community. Email your performing arts nominations to PassingtheTorchThroughtheArts@gmail.com or reach out to us on Face book Passing the Torch Through the Arts, or MichaelMonasterial@icloud.com

Collar Works – Troy, NY & Artist/Mother Podcast – Painting at Night

Artist/Mother Podcast and Collar Works are excited to announce an open call for entries for the third annual Painting at Night exhibition, juried this year by Judith Braun (she/her). As part of the Artist/Mother Podcast Community’s ongoing work to bring exposure to and provide opportunities for artists who are also mothers, the A/MP is seeking submissions for their annual group exhibition!

To imply that good art cannot be made in domestic spaces, or that a person cannot claim the title of artist without meeting arbitrary requirements is a patriarchal myth, one that artists who are mothers have been resisting for decades.

For this show, we would like you to offer a response, addressing the ways you are making excellent and inspiring work while also navigating your role as a mother. The work may respond to thematic obstacles such as domestic duties, lack of childcare, restraints on time, limited support, lack of space or resources.

Show us, through the work, how you are “Painting at Night”- making art as an Artist/Mother.

Submission Materials:

Artist information and Statement (150 words), Artist Bio (150 words), up to 5 images or videos.  Provide a corresponding list of Works (title, medium, date, size, price), website and social media handles.  Entry fee is $15, financial aid is available, contact Robert@collarworks.org

Guidelines + Information:

Juror will select works based on theme of show.  All mediums are welcome to apply.  All artwork must be ready to hang or install.  All artwork must be for sale, with artists receiving 100% of all sales. Artist is responsible for shipping and handling costs.

Selected artists will be notified by April 1, 2022.  All work must arrive at Collar Works on or by May 2, 2022.
