Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

 

What: Hinckley Pottery Student Show

Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Location: 1707 Kalorama Road NW, Washington DC

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven. Awarded on the basis of financial need and artistic merit, and determined by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council, 25 grants of $2,000 each will be announced shortly after the May 20 deadline. Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.
 
ABOUT ARTPRIZE

The public voters use mobile devices and the web to distribute their awards, while a group of international art experts determines the winners of the juried awards.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven. Awarded on the basis of financial need and artistic merit, and determined by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council, 25 grants of $2,000 each will be announced shortly after the May 20 deadline. Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.

The public voters use mobile devices and the web to distribute their awards, while a group of international art experts determines the winners of the juried awards.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

The Henry is delighted to announce the finalists for award" target="_blank">The Brink Award. This award recognizes emerging artists age 35 and under in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia on the “brink” of an outstanding professional career. The Brink provides financial support, increased exposure, and critical validation from an internationally recognized arts institution, with the aim of fostering the artistic and professional development of emerging artists in the region. The Brink Award was established with the generous support of longtime Henry benefactors and Seattle philanthropists John and Shari Behnke.

The 2015 finalists are:

Raymond Boisjoly, Vancouver, B.C.
Rebecca Brewer, Vancouver, B.C.
Matt Browning, Seattle, WA
Barry Doupé, Vancouver, B.C.
Julia Feyrer, Vancouver, B.C.
Jason Hirata, Seattle, WA
Evan LaLonde, Portland, OR

For the 2015 award, 57 nominations were received from a group of art professionals across the Pacific Northwest. The 2015-16 Jury is comprised of Dan Webb, artist; Robert Snowden, Curator at Yale Union in Portland; Helga Pakasaar, Curator at Presentation House Gallery in Vancouver, B.C.; Nina Bozicnik, Assistant Curator at the Henry; and founders John and Shari Behnke. The jury completed the review of artist submissions in April. Jurors will conduct studio visits with the finalists later this spring. The winner will be announced on June 12, 2015.

The recipient will be awarded a cash prize of $12,500, a solo exhibition at the Henry, and a publication. A work representative of the artist’s current practice will be acquired for the museum’s permanent collection.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

 

What: Hinckley Pottery Student Show

Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven.

Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

 

What: Hinckley Pottery Student Show

Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Location: 1707 Kalorama Road NW, Washington DC

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven. Awarded on the basis of financial need and artistic merit, and determined by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council, 25 grants of $2,000 each will be announced shortly after the May 20 deadline. Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.
 
ABOUT ARTPRIZE
ArtPrize is an international art competition, open to any artist and decided by public and juried vote. It invites artists to try out new ideas on a large and diverse population of people. It seeks to broaden the critical dialogue around contemporary art by awarding the world’s largest art prize. Two, $200,000 awards are decided by public vote and expert jury, and an additional $100,000 in prizes is awarded to the top entries in each category. Registered artists and venues connect online at artprize.org and agree to present the artwork for public display during the 19-day event. The public voters use mobile devices and the web to distribute their awards, while a group of international art experts determines the winners of the juried awards. ArtPrize 2014 included 1,536 entries representing 51 countries and 42 U.S. states and territories. ArtPrize 2014 attracted more than 400,000 active participants. Since its inception, individuals of all backgrounds have cast more than 2.4 million votes for public art.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven. Awarded on the basis of financial need and artistic merit, and determined by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council, 25 grants of $2,000 each will be announced shortly after the May 20 deadline. Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

 

What: Hinckley Pottery Student Show

Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven. Awarded on the basis of financial need and artistic merit, and determined by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council, 25 grants of $2,000 each will be announced shortly after the May 20 deadline. Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.
 
ABOUT ARTPRIZE
ArtPrize is an international art competition, open to any artist and decided by public and juried vote. It invites artists to try out new ideas on a large and diverse population of people. It seeks to broaden the critical dialogue around contemporary art by awarding the world’s largest art prize. Two, $200,000 awards are decided by public vote and expert jury, and an additional $100,000 in prizes is awarded to the top entries in each category. Registered artists and venues connect online at artprize.org and agree to present the artwork for public display during the 19-day event. The public voters use mobile devices and the web to distribute their awards, while a group of international art experts determines the winners of the juried awards. ArtPrize 2014 included 1,536 entries representing 51 countries and 42 U.S. states and territories. ArtPrize 2014 attracted more than 400,000 active participants. Since its inception, individuals of all backgrounds have cast more than 2.4 million votes for public art.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.

Item: Hinckley Pottery Holds 24th Annual Student Show May 3rd
Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”

Item: ARTPRIZE Announces Jurors for the 2015 Grand Prize and Category Awards
Date: 24 April 2015, 4:00 am
ArtPrize, the radically open, international art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has announced the 2015 panel of jurors for the Grand Prize and Category Awards. ArtPrize will return for its 7th edition, Sept. 23 – Oct. 11, 2015.

The 2015 Juried Grand Prize ($200,000) winner will be chosen by a panel of three jurors that includes Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz; and Brooklyn-based artist Wangechi Mutu.

The five Category Awards ($12,500 each) recognize one outstanding work in each of the four artist entry categories (2-D, 3-D, Time-Based & Installation) plus one venue for outstanding curatorial presentation. These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.
 
ARTIST REGISTRATION AND GRANT DEADLINES
Artist Seed Grants, supported by the Frey Foundation, are available for a second year at ArtPrize to offset the cost of especially ambitious and challenging entries for ArtPrize Seven. Awarded on the basis of financial need and artistic merit, and determined by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council, 25 grants of $2,000 each will be announced shortly after the May 20 deadline. Apply for your grant after registering online.

Artist registration for ArtPrize Seven is currently open. Visit artprize.org to complete your Artist Registration before midnight, June 4th.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

These awards will be selected by: Indianapolis-based curator, creator and host of The Art Assignment (PBS Digital), Sarah Urist Green (3-D); Los Angeles-based Senior Programmer of Sundance Film Festival and curator of New Frontier at Sundance, Shari Frilot (Time-Based); New York-based editor and art critic, Robin Cembalest (Installation); and Cincinnati-based curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Steven Matijcio (Venue). The 2-D juror will be announced at a later date.

Exhibitions Director of ArtPrize, Kevin Buist, said, “We chose to work with jurors who are not only experts in their field, but also bring a distinct point of view. The public vote functions as an aggregate of thousands of opinions, and we’ve designed the juried awards to operate as a foil to that populist approach. The jurors’ job is not to ferret out the objectively ‘best’ artwork, instead they’re charged with finding works that are surprising, masterful and relevant from their expert perspective.”

Since expanding in 2010 to include both public and juried awards, ArtPrize has sought to use its unique parallel awards structure – splitting the $500,000 purse evenly between public vote and juried awards – to spark lasting dialogue about public and art world perceptions of art. The participation of the jurors also presents the opportunity for leading curators, critics and institutional representatives to engage the public in their distinct and diverse viewpoints, pointing out new frameworks for interpreting and viewing art and encouraging a conversation around what makes art impactful and significant. Previous years’ jurors have included Theaster Gates, Jerry Saltz, Susan Sollins, Mel Chin and Anne Pasternak, among others.

The first weekend of the competition, September 26–27th, jurors will assess the entries within their respective categories, each selecting a shortlist of five entries. The 20 total finalists will then move on to the Grand Prize jurors’ selection.

On Monday, September 28th, the Category Jurors will reveal each of their 20 category finalists during the ‘Jurors’ Short List’ event, broadcast live on NBC’s Grand Rapids affiliate, WOOD TV8. Category and Grand Prize winners will be officially announced at the ArtPrize Awards on October 9, 2015 at 9 p.m. EST.

Item: cove Hosts Art Reception: Barbara Januszkiewicz
Date: 21 April 2015, 5:00 am
On April 30, 2015 cove will partner with ArtSee to celebrate their relationship with Washington, DC based artist Barbara Januszkiewicz. Cove will open the doors of their newest location in Rosslyn (1735 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA) for an opportunity to meet and dialogue with the artists about her work featured in the cove space. For this exhibition, Barbara Januszkiewicz hopes the works on display will spark a dialogue about the use of color and her fascination with conceptual link to music. In an effort to show support for the Arlington art scene, Januszkiewicz hopes to use social media to share her work and support for alternative art spaces. Cove’s wall space has been turned in to an alternative art gallery through September 9, 2015, showcasing Januszkiewicz’s fine artwork. The public, press and art supporters are welcome to tour the space to see the artwork and interact with the artist on April 30, 2015 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
 
Barbara Januszkiewicz is influenced directly by music and strives to capture sound in her paintings. She finds it intriguing that there is a vocabulary of words that apply to both music and visual art, from movement, patterns, perspectives and layering.  Januszkiewicz’s expression in visual art is based on reacting directly to music. Januszkiewicz has been working in watercolor, a medium that makes it difficult to capture the complexity and color of a song. For cove, however, she will display her latest work of acrylic on canvas, a new medium for Januszkiewicz. Exploring the effects of every genre from jazz to thumping garage rock and vintage blues has helped express that moment when sound becomes visual. 
 
Cove features different local artists in each of their eight spaces. Januszkiewicz admires that cove is creating an intimidation free atmosphere where art speaks for itself. Cove is providing an alternative art experience to that provided by a gallery; it is reaching new audiences and exposing visual art to a new crowd. Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They boast fast Wi-Fi, color printers, conference rooms, and now, local art for their members.
 
ArtSee works to bring local art and artists into each cove space with a six-month rotation of their work. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of receptions, talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee.

Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E has been on view at the Henry since this past October. Hamilton’s large-scale installments have led visitors on an immersive journey that explored her invitation to discover tangible and intangible ways of touch. Using various materials, animals and representations–fur and feather garments, scientific specimens, books, and mechanical bullroarers–Hamilton guided visitors to consider the interdependence between human and non-human animals.

The development of the common S E N S E and its accompanying events and activities provided Hamilton and the Henry the opportunity to collaborate with various partners in the local region–including Seattle Arts and Lectures, UW School of Music, the Burke Museum–just to name a few. The collaborations of the common S E N S E have supported the Henry’s commitment of advancing contemporary art, artists, and ideas.

Throughout the duration of this exhibition, singers, dancers, and musicians have surrounded and filled the gallery spaces with their music, footsteps, and spoken word, all in response to the exploration of Hamilton’s work. As Ann Hamilton: the common S E N S E comes to an end, her work continues to inspire.

The Henry invites you to stop by this weekend before the common S E N S E closes on Sunday, April 26th.

The recipient will be awarded a cash prize of $12,500, a solo exhibition at the Henry, and a publication. A work representative of the artist’s current practice will be acquired for the museum’s permanent collection.

Item: Call for Artists: The Writing on the Wall
Date: 26 April 2015, 8:19 pm

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wallrunning from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist  Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.  
They invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing.

Date: 25 April 2015, 12:10 pm

Hinckley Pottery, which has been a vibrant center for pottery-making in the Washington area for more than 40 years, will be holding its 24th Annual Student Show at its studio in Adams Morgan on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015.

 

Twenty-six experienced students will display a year’s worth of artistry for sale to the public. The potters work in stoneware and porcelain and incorporate more than 30 different glazes available at the studio ranging from vibrant blues and greens to ochre and rust earth tones.

 

The show will feature platters, bowls, mugs, vases, teapots, and other vessels, and all of the pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed. Visitors are invited to come and meet the potters, enjoy delicious food, and find one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for housewarmings, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and everyday use.

 

This is the studio’s only group show of the year and emphasizes the variety of surface design and silhouette that each potter brings to the clay. “The student show is a fun social occasion and a great opportunity for the public to see a wide array of great pots at very reasonable prices. As a participant I'm always impressed by the quality and variety of the work on display" says Hinckley Pottery Student Peter Rivenberg.

 

During the show, visitors can get information about classes at Hinckley Pottery. The studio offers classes every day of the week for students of all levels to learn and practice wheel-thrown pottery.

 

 Student and show participant, Emma Dumain remarks, “The student show is a once-a-year chance to see what over two-dozen diverse potters can produce out of the same clay, with the same glazes, under the same instructors. All of us at Hinckley Pottery love seeing what our colleagues have been working on over the past 12 months, and we love the opportunity to show the public what Jill Hinckley students are all about.”
