Arte LatiNext

I am sharing information about a new local network for Latino/Latina artists, makers, musicians, and performers in Lane County. The group is called Arte LatiNext, and was formed to connect Latinx artists with each other to share resources and opportunities, and work together to support one another.
Arte LatiNext invites artists to come together for regular (informal) convenings every six weeks. There is also a Facebook group that artists can join to connect and share: https://bit.ly/2GUwuYE

The group is focused on artists, makers, musicians and performers and is open to anyone! Artists can attend any of the convenings, and participate when and however they choose. If interested, artists can email me and join the Facebook group.

The next Arte LatiNext convening will be Wednesday, August 21st, 5-6:30pm at the 942 Olive Street building in Eugene. This month’s gathering will be a workshop on grant writing basics, and learning about the Lane County Cultural Coalition’s Cultural Opportunity Grant. We will also talk about the Facebook page, work on clarifying the mission/purpose of the group, and shareout any other opportunities.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Upstream Art Project in Eugene, Call for Artists

The City of Eugene is launching an Upstream Art Project to help communicate the importance of storm drains, their function, and their connection to our rivers. This is the second year that local artists are invited to paint mini-murals next to downtown area storm drains in Eugene with visual messages about protecting our waterways, stream habitat and aquatic wildlife.
The theme for 2019 is “Clean Rivers Start Here”. There are up to four storm drains identified for the 2019 project. Artist selection will be based on how well the theme is conveyed, how well the artist depicts that storm drains lead to rivers and how well the art encourages the community to help protect local waterways. Each artist selected (up to four total) will receive $1,000 total compensation after the artwork is installed.
Submission of artwork is due by 5 p.m. on August 22, 2019. Artwork must be completed on Monday and Tuesday, September 23 – 24. Anyone interested in participating can find application information atwww.happyrivers.org
The project is part of the City’s education and outreach efforts to help residents understand that stormwater flows untreated to our local waterways and that everyone has a role in helping to protect rivers.

I’m the assistant editor of GRAY, an international design publication based in Seattle. We are gathering applicants to submit design projects for our annual HOT NEW NEXT event, a dynamic competition celebrating the innovative ideas moving Pacific Northwest design forward. This Shark Tank-style program will offer contestants in Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver the chance to present a rapid-fire pitch of a compelling new design-related concept or product in front of a live audience to an expert panel.

Our submissions deadline has just been extended to July 12. Our Seattle event is slated for July 30 at the Seattle Design Center.

At each event, judges (and the audience) will vote, and regional winners will be featured in GRAY, receive off-site mentorship by our judges, and advance to the championship round—held on the GRAY Stage at IDS Vancouver—to compete for a cash prize and the designation of truly being the next big thing in Pacific Northwest design.

Whether the idea is brand new, or a clever update to an existing product, all design disciplines have a chance—from architecture and furniture to interiors, fashion, tech, and beyond. You can submit your project HERE; no fee is required to enter.

commissioning a small piece of art

Hi there,
I’m interested in commissioning a small piece of art.  My budget is probably around $100.  I know nothing about art, but I imagine it would be stencil or paper cutting.  I’m envisioning an 8 x 10 black silhouette of woman with a few blue butterflies.
My email address is ryanadamsemail@gmail.com and people can text me at 541-246-5312.
Thank you,
Ryan

THE PROPOSAL – A film about Luis Barragán by artist Jill Magid – Opening tomorrow in Portland!

THE PROPOSAL – Social Media Assets-final

My name is Nick Camacho, and I’m the marketing director at Oscilloscope Laboratories, the Brooklyn-based indie film distributor founded by late Beastie Boy Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch. I wanted to quickly reach out regarding a film we are opening tomorrow that I think you will enjoy.
THE PROPOSAL is the first film from boundary-pushing visual artist Jill Magid, whose quest to make public the hidden archives of famed Mexican architect Luis Barragán leads her to create a controversial new work that turns the worlds of art and architecture on their heads.
The film opens tomorrow, 6/21, at the Living Room Theatre
Sincerely,
Nick Camacho

Aiyana McClinton’s Northrop Award-winning piece on display in hearth of Chapman Hall

Photographed by Dana Sparks for Clarks Honors College
Aiyana McClinton and her Northrop Award-winning piece, “Take Care,” now on display in the hearth at Chapman Hall. 

by Abbey McDonald, Clark Honors College Communications 

A few weeks ago, on May 29, two women hammered six nails directly into the wall of the newly renovated Chapman Hall. It happened in plain sight of administration, between the south entrance and room 102.

They were Sonja Dahl, the fibers studio manager at the School of Art and Design, and Aiyana McClinton, the Northrop Award winning student whose art will adorn the front lobby until the spring of 2021.

The Keena Shaw Northrop Dean Art Award was established in 2013. Northrop graduated in 1950 from the School of Architecture and Allied Arts with a degree in Fine/Applied Arts. She did some of her coursework in Chapman Hall, using the project drawers in what is now the Clark Honors College Library to store her work.

The award will be offered for the next 10 years for a student to produce a work of art to install in Chapman Hall for one year.

The three textile pieces took an hour to arrange, and McClinton carefully fluffed and preened each one. Her plan for its presentation had been stewing since spring break, when she was notified that her work had been selected.

“I went and looked at the space and thought, ‘they’re going to look so perfect!’” she recalled.

McClinton used cotton, yarn, raw and refined wool for most of the black and white pieces. She also dangled warp ends from its edges that her classmates cut from finished loom projects. Its variety of materials combine with eclectic weaving techniques to make the installation a treat for the eyes, and soft to the touch.

Though the three pieces have their own personalities, with McClinton’s favorite part being the tuft of wool at the top of the right piece, they all coexist in harmony.

“I like to think of them as triplets. They’re all sort of interconnected and communicating with each other, and I like to think that they’re sort of relying on each other,” she said.

ECA art writing workshop in July

ECA is doing an art writing workshop in July, sponsored by City of Eugene Cultural Services and taught by Vicki Amorose. It’s a free 4-part workshop, taking place across four Wednesdays 6-7:30pm at Eugene Public Library.

Registration is required and the workshop is capped at 25 participants: http://www.eugenecontemporaryart.com/write-about-visual-art-workshop/.

Vicki has written a more detailed description of the workshop and the ideas behind it on her blog: http://artwritebook.com/2019/05/29/write-about-visual-art-community-based-workshop/, but essentially we perceive a lack of critical writing about art in Eugene, and we would like for that to change.

Northrop Art Award recipient: Aiyana McClinton

Aiyana McClinton Artist Statement
Weaving is a direct communication of time, you start at one end and finish at the other in an incredibly linear way. In my own weavings I experiment with the idea of linear woven time by allowing the wool to travel not only horizontally, but also vertically. Following the notion of linear time the wool travels horizontally; right to left, left to right in a predictable line. In an effort to contradict this conventional linearity I also allow the wool to travel up and down the warp, almost as if it were being translated through dimensions or places in time.

These woven triplets tell a story of time and dependence. They feature a mixture of raw and refined wool, cotton yarn, and many other found materials like rope and warp ends, in a high contrast black, tan and white color palette. Wool droops and meanders through the weavings, enunciating the way the three interact with and affect each other. When on the loom, the pieces are completely flat; when allowed to drape, the pieces take on emotion and life. The horizontal lines become snakes slithering between the weavings, messages being sent back and forth. The draping of the weavings mocks the drooping cotton floats, giving a body to the woven emotions. The folds are translated across weavings, connecting them all as one sporadic movement. The two outer weavings humbly lean on the center piece, reliant and responsive. Emotional communication and cyclical time is found in the jumping and repeating wool pieces. The weavings are in tune with their connections.

Intertwined Storytelling Performance: May 9th & 10th – Join us

https://youtu.be/1HB89efK94Q

Greetings!

You are invited to a magical storytelling event. “Intertwined: Choices” showcases twelve UO students and staff as storytellers. These individuals have been working hard to craft their stories and will share their personal experiences around the choices they have made, have not made, or decisions that were perhaps never choices at all—sweet, funny, painful, honest. Each story will be live scored by the talented Cullen Vance.

When:   May 9th and 10th (same event, offered two different nights)   Doors open at 7pm with refreshments and activities | Show begins at 7:30.

Where:  Global Scholars Hall, Great Room

We’re so excited to continue our work supporting UO’s amazing diversity of voices, and we hope you’ll choose to join us.

How do we make choices? In “The Journey,” Mary Oliver makes it sound simple, like a matter of instinct and time: “One day you finally knew what to do, and began.” And sometimes, it is like that. A choice arrives at our feet and we just know.

But often, choices breed complications. Whether we gain everything we ever wanted, lose everything we ever had, or wind up somewhere in between, the choices we make change us in ways we can even sometimes predict at the outset. The sides we take create new communities and risk altering old ones. The paths we choose take us to new wonders but we don’t know if they’ll take us back to places we loved. Maybe they shouldn’t. Every time we make a choice, we take a risk. And what if we can’t decide at all? What if the instinct never finds us and we never know for certain what’s right? What if we change our minds?

This year’s theme is all about how we choose and how we come to terms with the choices we make. What strength, comfort, or wisdom can be gained in the telling and the listening? How can we support each other in the work of considering, knowing, beginning, and remembering?

https://www.facebook.com/events/850670398603107/

The Home Planet at University Theatre

University of Oregon’s Theatre is putting on a production of a newly devised play called The Home planet. The show highlights the beauty and the struggles of our beautiful planet. It is a poetic, visual, and musical journey celebrating the hope inspired by the first moon landing
50 years ago. I have attached our promotional flyer containing further information.
The play is a call to action to help maintain our beautiful blue planet.
