Submission fee: $30 for up to five images, $7 for each additional image.

Artworks submitted for the "Joy" multi-media juried exhibit should embody, illustrate or otherwise express concepts or imagery that evoke joy, happiness, exuberance, and vitality. The purpose of the exhibit is to meet program goals to (1) create an aesthetically rich, uplifting experience for patients, families and staff caregivers, and (2) enliven and elevate the emotional and intellectual atmosphere of the hospital environment.

EXHIBITION SPACE & DATES
This group exhibition will be presented in the hallway adjacent to the south lobby of the main campus of Barnes-Jewish Hospital off of Kingshighway in St. Louis, MO. Exhibition dates: February 11-June 11, 2015. The exhibition will feature approximately 15-16 artworks total.   

ELIGIBILITY
pen to artists 21 years of age and older living in the St. Louis, Missouri region and surrounding 200-mile radius. Chicago, IL and Kansas City, MO are not eligible.

DEADLINE
The deadline to submit works for this exhibit is December 19, 2014. We encourage you to send your entry in before the deadline. No late entries will be accepted.

Two-dimensional wall-displayed flat artworks only. All artworks must be framed and displayed behind glass or plexi. No sculpture. Limit 3 (three) original artworks in all styles, techniques & media.

OUR JURORS
Sarah Colby, artist and Arts + Healthcare Program Coordinator, The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO; and Jennifer Arvin, Director of Communications & Marketing, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO.

JURYING, JPEGS, ENTRY FORM
Judging is done by JPEGs sent by email only to info@artstlouis.org. Limit 2 JPEGs per artwork: 1 full view is required. If artist wishes, 1 close-up/detail view is also permitted. Only JPEG format image files will be considered. JPEGs must be RGB Color (NO grayscale), 300 dpi preferred, minimum 800 pixels. Do not submit small or low resolution images. Title each JPEG file with your last name and either name it image 1 or image 2. Example: smith.image1. Artworks selected for exhibition that are delivered to Art Saint Louis yet are not accurately depicted by JPEGs will not be exhibited.

Entry form is required and must be filled out in full to include all information requested. Email form portion only with JPEGs. Entries that do not have accompanying Entry Form will not be accepted and artworks will not be shown to the Jurors. Download the entry form for this exhibit directly from the Art Saint Louis website here.

THE JURYING PROCESS
The method by which ALL exhibitions are juried at Art Saint Louis is always a fair and blind (anonymous) process. What this means is that at no time before or during the jurying process do our Jurors know the names of entering artists. The Jurors are presented all entrants' JPEGs in an anonymous digital image presentation and the only information provided to them pertains to the artwork and includes the following: artwork title, year, media, dimensions, and method of presentation (displayed on the wall, sits on a pedestal). Jurors are never shown the names of any artists. All artworks that you submit for jurying are presented one after the other in the presentation that the jurors view. So, if you are artist #25, your artworks/entries are in the presentation after artist #24 and before artist #26. From the jurying presentation and information provided about the artworks, the jurors make their selections for the final exhibit. Artwork selection decisions are in part based on a set of specific jurying instructions & criteria relating to the theme of the exhibit as well as specific conditions & rules of the Gallery. For non-thematic exhibitions, a well-rounded exhibit is based on the Jurors' aesthetics along with general exhibition criteria established for all exhibits by Art Saint Louis' Artistic Director. This is a blind process and at no time are the Jurors shown entrants' names, and oftentimes they do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls. Ours is a fair jurying process.  

ENTRY FEE
There is no entry fee to submit works for jurying for this exhibit. Artists still must submit all other materials (entry form, JPEGs) and comply with the rules of entry in order to have work considered for this exhibit.  

FRAMING & PRESENTATION
All work selected for exhibit must be delivered to the Art Saint Louis Gallery ready to install. Artwork must be framed, displayed behind glass or plexi, and  equipped with hanging wire stretched across back of artwork. NO saw tooth hangers or clip-style frames. No loose plexi that is clipped/nailed to wall. No works that are tacked, pinned, taped, velcroed, painted on, or affixed directly to/on Gallery walls. Art Saint Louis reserves the right to install accepted works in a manner deemed necessary for a well-designed exhibition and/or for security purposes, including the use of security brackets or other security-related hardware or fixtures.

SALES & INSURANCE
Artworks are insured at 50% of retail value during exhibit. Artist responsible for work in transit to/from Art Saint Louis. All sales are through Art Saint Louis with 30% donation on work sold to ASL and 70% to artist. Artist responsible for delivery of sold work to buyer at end of exhibit.

Early Bird Deadline: November 15
Prizes. 32 images will be chosen to be exhibited at PHOTO LA, the largest photography convention in California, on the weekend of Jan 15-18, 2015.

Note: Contestants must reside in the United States. You may submit as many photos as you wish.
Entry fees. The cost for each image you submit is $5 for ASMP members or $7 for non-members.

Ready to Enter?

You can start right now. First, read How to Enter to find out about preparing your submission images. And, of course, you should definitely read the Contest Rules, although you won’t find any shockers there.
Next, you will create your contest account, giving your contact and attribution info.
Then, you will buy one or more “upload credits”, one credit for each image you intend to submit. That will enable the image-upload form. After each upload, you’ll see a thumbnail of your photo; click on the thumbnail to view it at full resolution.
Check the thumbnail and the full-resolution view carefully. If you don’t like what you see, you can delete it and try again, until it’s just what you want.
You will be able to make changes to your contact info and your submitted photos right up until the contest closes. Whatever is in the system at closing time will be packaged up and sent to the judges.
The winners will be notified by December 5. By December 12, each winner will deliver a high-resolution file for printing at full exhibition size, as determined by the judges. ASMP will print and mount the images, and they will be hung for public viewing at Photo LA in January.

Call for Work: Deadline 12 November 2014

Accepting applications between Monday, September 15 and November 12, 2014. Join Information Webinar on October 21 (see bottom of page for details.)

Overview:


The Surdna Foundation is now accepting proposals for one- or two-year support to extraordinary artist-driven projects as part of its Artists Engaging in Social Change funding area. All artistic disciplines will be considered, including cross-disciplinary work. The request for proposal (RFP) is open to both 501(c)(3) organizations and individual artists and culture bearers, but artists and collectives that are not incorporated as 501(c)(3)s must apply under a fiscal sponsor. Through this RFP, Surdna will support compelling projects that artists develop in response to their communities' specific challenges, and will also fund the projects of artists whose long-term, deeply-rooted work has increased social engagement without necessarily being explicitly defined as "activist." Proposals will be accepted between September 15 and November 12, 2014. Surdna staff, with support from outside experts, will present recommendations to the Surdna board and final decisions will be made in early April, 2015. The Foundation believes this process will allow us to make considered investments in artistic practices that focus on engaging and reflecting communities.  Application guidelines are provided below and frequently asked questions, including grant amounts and definitions of key terms, are available here.

Framations Gallery and you

In the St. Charles area, there are only a few galleries and organizations that offer regular exhibit opportunities for regional artists. Among these are the Foundry Art Centre, the St. Peters Cultural Art Center, and Framations Art Gallery. Knowing this, the owners of Framations have decided not only to focus on providing more opportunities for artists, but to also provide ample preparation time for artists gathering work for these exhibits.

For those unfamiliar with the gallery, Framations opened its doors on Main Street in St. Charles back in 2006. After starting their own custom framing business the prior year, owners Amy Wilson and Sarah Merideth decided to open a brick and mortar location, expanding the business to include an art gallery. When the gallery first opened, the owners wanted to have a diverse collection of not only Resident Artists whose work was continuously on display, but also exhibits that rotated in Featured Exhibits throughout the year. Within the first quarter, the owners decided to host their first juried exhibit, Beyond the Lens: a Photography Exhibition. 

After several years of working with artists and hosting more than 100 featured exhibits, Framations is now proud to be working on Beyond the Lens IX, among several other juried exhibits planned for the next year. "As of now we are in the planning stages of 6 juried exhibitions, 5 of which we have already announced to area artists that will go through next August," according to Sarah Merideth. "We are making it our goal to provide multiple opportunities for artists to display and sell their work throughout the year. These juried exhibitions are for artists 18 and up who live in the St. Louis Region."

In addition to Beyond the Lens IX, Framations will also be hosting an exhibit entitled Focus on the Details, on display this December, and one entitled In Transit 2: journey, change & motion early next year. There will be at least three more going into next fall. Framations encourages artists and those interested in art to find their Facebook page or to visit their website to sign up for their Newsletter to keep up to date on upcoming exhibitions and opportunities for artists.

Another aspect that interests many artists is that Framations is open to suggestions regarding themes for their exhibits. Merideth states that "we have offered several exhibits in the last few years where the concept has evolved from ideas brought to us by artists. For instance, after several suggestions for having an exhibit of portraits, we devised an exhibit called 'Presence", which focused not only on the use of portraiture, but in the inclusion or hint of the presence of a human figure. The resulting exhibit was more intriguing than it would have been focused solely on portraiture. " Anyone can offer suggestions by visiting the website, clicking on "For Artists" and selecting the "Suggest a Show" option. "We do our best to listen to and engage artists when they visit the gallery" remarked Merideth. "We have artists walk in and they are looking for more exhibit opportunities. Not only that, they have ideas for the type of exhibits they want to see and participate in. We enjoy discussing these ideas and seeing where it takes us."

Framations Custom Framing and Art Gallery has been a fixture on Main Street in St. Charles for more than 8 years. In that time, Framations has hosted more than 100 exhibits featuring local artists. These include group and juried shows as well as solo exhibits. Framations is located at 218 North Main Street in St. Charles. The full entry details can be found on www.framations.com.  Call (636) 724-8313 with any questions.

The Traces Left BehindJUROR:  Matthew Christopher
DEADLINE:  Monday, October 6, 2014

Whether abandoned or discarded, lost, preserved, or memorialized, the objects and places that are evidence of our histories inspire photographs.

From an abandoned crumbling factory to a greasy pizza box left curbside, from an Incan ruin to a matted soft toy washed up at water's edge, initials carved in a tree, a soiled pile of personal effects waiting beneath an overpass, these are the clues to the treasure map of humanity. The humans who left them are palpable. 

We are drawn photograph these things before they rot or crumble or disappear entirely. They are evidence of the passage of time and, ultimately, of our mortality.

About the Juror
We are very pleased that Matthew Christopher has agreed to jury this exhibition. Over the last decade Matthew has photographed the decay of American infrastructure and the dimming of the American dream. His has exhibited widely in the United States in solo He will choose 40 photographs for exhibition in the gallery, and an additional 35 for the gallery's Online Annex.  All 75 photographs will be reproduced in an exhibition catalog.

More information and application here.
