Invitation to submit to Hot New Next Seattle

Hello,

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

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.

looking for a few graphic artists

Hi there!
My name is Allison – class of 2013, and my company is looking for a few graphic artists to create some fun original artwork for an upcoming tech conference we are hosting. We are a Portland-based company, and would love to utilize local(ish) talent!
We would be so excited to get to work with your students! We decided the easiest way to do this would be to host a contest. Winner(s) will receive compensation for their work, and the chance to have their work featured at our major tech conference, CloudyCon. Here is a bit about the conference:
  • CloudyCon is a 3-day conference taking place on September 10-12 outside of San Francisco, CA
  • The event is sponsored by big companies such as Amazon
  • Artwork will be a main highlight of the conference signage, main stage, and swag – some really nice exposure!

This contest is open for 4 more days! We’d love it if some of your students could submit! https://bit.ly/2LxFN5S 

 

Let me know if you have any questions,
Allison

2019 Upstream Art – Call to Artists

To All Interested Artists:

The City of Springfield is pleased to announce that the Call to Artists for the 2019 Upstream Art Project is underway!

Artists in the Eugene-Springfield area are invited to submit unique mural designs for UpStream Art. Murals will be painted on the ground at the Booth-Kelly trailhead of the Mill Race path near downtown Springfield. The murals will convey a visual message about everyone’s role in helping to protect our waterways. Artists have until 5 p.m., Friday, May 24 to submit an application and design. Details and application instructions can be found on the City of Springfield’s website.

Artists are encouraged to create designs that speak to this year’s theme: “It’s All Connected.” The murals will ‘flow’ from one to another toward a vegetated stormwater treatment area at the trailhead. Selected artists will be compensated for their completed artwork, and they will paint the murals on August 23 and 24, 2019.

Since 2016, the UpStream Art project has brought to life 16 murals on storm drains in downtown Springfield. The murals raise awareness of the importance of storm drains and their connection to our rivers. Pollutants such as oil, trash, and pet waste are harmful to water quality and aquatic life. Everyone can protect local waterways through simple, everyday actions.

For more information, contact: Mary E. Healy at  541.736.3626 ,  mhealy@springfield-or.gov  or WaterResources@springfield-or.gov.

HOPES [25] Conference: Earl Mark’s Rapid Shelter Site Improvisation

Hello!
We had a great first day of the HOPES [25] sustainability and design conference! We are so excited about the conversations that have been generated by yesterday’s activities. Let’s maintain that momentum!
For those of you planning to attend Earl Mark’s workshop at 1pm, please remember that part of the workshop will be outside so wear appropriate clothing and shoes.
More information on the Rapid Shelter Site Improvisation workshop:
In the fleeting moments setting up rapid shelter following a catastrophic event, speed may be critical and site data unavailable. With Associate Professor of Architecture, Dr. Earl Mark, and Marine Biologist, Dr. Deborah Brosnan, participants equipped with compass, camera* and sketchpad walk the southern bank of the Willamette River adjacent to UO. Recording what is directly observable, they will then move indoors to layout shelters with a minimal environmental footprint from prepared paper fold models. The experiment concludes with a discussion of lessons learned.
Randy Hester’s lecture, “Design for Ecological Democracy” will start at 10:30, (not as listed on the brochures at 10).
 
For more information about the HOPES[25] Conference, follow the link below. All events are free and open to the public.
We’ll see you there!
Best,
HOPES[25] Team

Here’s to your health!

Below are photos from our previous workshops, benefits of SKY meditation, and testimonials.

Testimonials

“Yesplus (now SKY) made me very conscious of my thought patterns, and conscious of a sense of self that exists independent of those thoughts and different moods. It made me calmer, more reflective, more observant, and more stable–I enjoyed the course a great deal, and have found that a daily practice is something I’m relying on. (And this reading and finals period has been largely stress free, mainly because meditating removes most of that stress!)”

— SARAH, SOPHOMORE, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

“Alertness, creativity and efficient teamwork, I realize, are the cornerstones in contributing and getting the most from a demanding schedule at a business school. I observe that while students struggle to maintain their energy throughout the day, Yesplus practices helps me to be in “the zone”. They tremendously assist me to keep my smile throughout the day, deliver successfully and involve myself ingeniously… all without feeling a sense of stressful effort. What else can one ask for!”

— CHETAN, MANAGEMENT FELLOW AT SLOAN SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
