Come by our pop up – front lobby of Lawrence Hall.

Please join us until 3:30 today to select your bowl and be part of the Ocean Bowl Project.

Ecological Art + Design to restore the earth:

Join artists/designers to support our beloved Pacific Ocean.  We generated a site-specific art experience with ocean-inspired ceramic bowls, then temporarily harbored debris that washed onto the beach inside the Ocean Bowls. The poetic gesture of removing debris and cleaning the bowls is an act to restore local habitat and benefit all beings who call the Pacific Ocean home. 100% of proceeds go to the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve.

Project for StoveTeam International

My name is Meaghan and I work with a local organization called StoveTeam International. We are based here in Eugene but work in Central America promoting the local production of fuel-efficient cookstoves. You can learn more about our work at www.stoveteam.org.
 
I am reaching out to see if there are any students in the art department who may be interested in helping us with a small art project. Our program manager is developing a few materials to teach local children in Copan Ruinas, Honduras about the dangers of open fires. He is in need of a volunteer that has drawing/animation skills. It would be a short-term project that we would like to complete as soon as possible.

Who we are
Aerothreads is Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and SBA certified HUBZone Small Business that specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) blankets. Our job is to design and fabricate custom MLI blankets that protect spacecraft hardware from the harsh environment of space.

Oregon Visual Artists: April 15th Deadline for Fall 2019 Residencies

Call for applications – TFFF Partnership updated logo-1mvwnrn

The MacDowell Colony and The Ford Family Foundation are working together to provide residencies to Oregon’s visual artists.

MacDowell provides valuable work time as well as inspiring environment in which creative artists are provided with exclusive use of a studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months. The Ford Family Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of artistic endeavor by Oregon’s established visual artists through the Foundation’s Visual Arts Program.

We hope you will consider applying for this opportunity. The attached document outlines the partnership in further detail.

There is no cost for a Fellowship; however, artists are responsible for their own materials and travel expenses. In order to open the residency experience to a broader community of artists, MacDowell offers two financial assistance programs to those who have been awarded a Fellowship. Need-based stipends are available to artists who would not otherwise be able to afford the time away that a Fellowship requires and travel reimbursement grants are available to defray the cost of travel to and from New Hampshire.

Our next deadline is April 15, 2019 for the fall 2019 residency season at MacDowell.

To apply, please visit www.macdowellcolony.org/apply-for-fellowship

Potential Design Student Project – Eugene-based brand

I work for a Eugene-based manufacturer of archery equipment called Bowtech. We’re a premium consumer brand and manufacture our products in our factory here in Eugene.

This Fall we’re launching several new products, including a new line of carbon fiber bows. We really want to emphasize the lightness and technology of these new products, and believe that color is a great way to do so. The archery category tends to be very traditional, with a limited and bland color pallet. We want to try something different. This new line of bows will appeal to a diverse audience, by age, gender and archery experience.

The proposed student project:

  • Develop a color pallet for a new line of carbon fiber vertical compound bows
  • If interested, develop other decoration options, including camouflage patterns, carbon fiber finishes, etc.
  • Develop a design for a bow targeted for women

Information we can provide the student:

  • A tour of our factory and offices and meetings with our marketing and product development team
  • Product samples
  • Competitive assessment
  • Extensive consumer research
  • Target consumer profile
  • Access to locally-based paint supplier

I believe this is an interesting project for a student.

Thank you.

Grant Funding for Art Projects and Arts Organizations in Eugene

Lane Arts Council accepting applications through May 2nd

EUGENE, Ore.— Funded by the City of Eugene and administered by Lane Arts Council, the Community Arts Grant program creates opportunities for Eugene artists, and ensures diverse, accessible arts experiences for Eugene participants and audiences. The grant program supports the ever-expanding role of that arts in the cultural, social, educational and economic areas of community life in Eugene.

Guidelines for both grants have been revised for this year. Through these changes, the City of Eugene and Lane Arts Council hope to increase the impact of grant funding by encouraging strategic organizational, program, and audience development. The overall goal is to support the long-term viability and success of Eugene’s arts community.

“Arts and culture is the heartbeat of our city and the reason why so many of us love living in Eugene, states Liora Sponko, Lane Arts Council Executive Director. “These grant awarded projects and programs provide our community with access to the incredible artistic contributions of our local artists and organizations. We are grateful that the City of Eugene champions this program and recognizes the importance of public funding for the arts.”

Applicants can apply for either a Project Grant or a Program Grant:

The Community Arts Program Grant provides two-year operating support to Eugene’s mid-sized community arts organizations. The primary goal of the Program Grant is to help arts organizations fulfill their strategic goals and reach the next level of their development such as capacity building, program development, audience building, staffing, expanded partnerships, and other organizational advancement. This is a competitive grant awarded every two years for up to seven arts organizations in Eugene. Lane Arts Council will award $5,000 each year for two consecutive years.

The Community Arts Project Grant prioritizes projects that emphasize accessibility to underserved audiences and provide arts programming that takes place in the City of Eugene. Competitive project proposals demonstrate strategies for community impact and provide access and inclusion to underserved and underrepresented communities whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by ethnicity, economics, or disability. Proposals might include exhibits, performances, festivals, workshops, events, programs and other examples of arts and culture projects.

Community Arts Project Grant Informational Session: Wednesday, March 6, 4-5:30pm

MacKenzie Fellowships for Artists’ Residencies: March 12 Deadline

Taleamor Park is especially seeking applications from visual artists for two-week residencies between May 11 and September 28.

For each of the six sessions we offer one $750 MacKenzie Fellowship, coupled with an assistantship that covers the residency fee in exchange for 12 to 15 hours work per week. Others will pay according to a tiered pricing structure.

We strive to maintain a balance between writers and visual artists, but most of our applications so far have been from writers.

So please encourage visual artists to apply for this rewarding opportunity. Acceptance is moderately but not extremely competitive, so we encourage anyone with strong work, references, and commitment to apply, especially if their project can relate to the unique qualities of our scenic rural location near Chicago and Lake Michigan.

Residents live in a lovely 1854 Italianate farmhouse that has four private air-conditioned bedrooms, two bathrooms, two kitchens, a laundry room, two common rooms, a library, a writing nook, and a paper studio. Vintage outbuildings offer both private and spacious shared studio spaces.

Verdant walking trails wind from the native plant and vegetable gardens, on through fields of grain, and further to woods and ponds and scenic vistas. Taleamor Park borders the mid-continental divide, from which waters flow either to the Gulf of Mexico or to Lake Michigan and the Atlantic.

Taleamor Park especially encourages residents who will respond to its unique location for site-specific installations, eco-artistic projects, parkland design and construction, plant growing and care, meditative walking, issues of water supply and quality, creative solitude, and plein air as well as studio painting.

There is a downloadable application form, and applications for the residency are accepted as long as places are open.

Applications for MacKenzie Fellowships with an assistantship are due March 12.

Call of Artwork: Contemporaneity Journal

Contemporaneity Call for Artwork 2019-18d09yd

We are pleased to announce that Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture is seeking artwork for its 8th edition. 

Emi Finkelstein and Ellen Larson

Co-Art Editors

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture

contemporaneityjournal@gmail.com

contemporaneity.pitt.edu

———————————————-

Art can be understood as a product of its Zeitgeist-a reflection of the time from which it comes. The temporal dimension of art has long been used by artists to understand their own position in time and to link themselves and their work both to the past and the present. The 8th issue of the journal Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Cultureseeks artistic submissions that address the relationship between artists and their time and ask what it means to be contemporary.

Contemporaneity’s 8th edition, titled “Yesterday’s Contemporaneity,” uncovers how cultures throughout the global past have negotiated temporalities, modernities, and historicisms to come to terms with what it means to be present in their own moment. How can both history and modernity be visualized, contextualized, or conceptualized to create a sense of contemporaneity? How have institutions created temporalities for the cultures they study, and how can a historical object or space shape a person’s perception of an entire culture’s identity or agency? What is at stake in defining a work of art’s place in time? For the arts section of edition 8 Contemporaneityis seeking artworks engaged with these or other questions relevant to the negotiation of temporalities within one’s art practice. In particular, we welcome submissions concerning anachronisms, futurisms, revisionisms, as well as spoliation, re-use of the past, and appropriation.

The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2019. Submissions should include the candidate’s full name, e-mail address and telephone number, a brief biography, an abstract about the artist’s work, 3-5 keywords, and a single PDF containing high-quality image(s) of each work to enable the selection committee to form as accurate an idea as possible of the applicant’s practice. There is no entry fee and no monetary publication reward. Applicants working exclusively in the medium of video are advised to provide a link to a video hosting site such as Vimeo or YouTube or to their own site where the video can be viewed.

To make a submission, visit contemporaneity.pitt.edu, click Register and create an Author profile to get started. We recognize that submissions may take many forms. As such, proposals and questions can be directed to the editors at contemporaneityjournal@gmail.com.

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture is an open access journal organized by the History of Art and Architecture Department at the University of Pittsburgh. Visit contemporaneity.pitt.edu and constellations.pitt.edu for more information.

The Art Gives Hope event will take place at Venue 252 in Eugene, OR on April 25th. Last year the event raised over $33k and had 275 attendees.

Kathy Cook

In associate with Celeste Shirecliffe, Author of Hidden Contempt

A Note from the Author:

Dear Beloved Art Community,

I’m so excited to launch the start of the Nationwide Book Cover Competition for my book, Hidden Contempt! I have chosen to do this competition as a way to give aspiring artists a portfolio building opportunity that will allow artists a chance to be handsomely rewarded for the valuable contribution they will bring to my book and for artists to gain exposure to their amazing talents. Being an award recipient at a competition while I was in school, I appreciate the valuable experience that comes from these kinds of competitions to aid students in building a resume that they can confidently enter the job market with. Though the prize money exceeds the cost of hiring a book cover artist, I want to provide this exciting opportunity for artists to create and showcase their creative abilities while getting a wide variety of talent and ideas.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have,

Celeste Shirecliffe

Office Workstation Comfort Study

Office Workstation Comfort Study seeks participants!

The Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory (ESBL) is seeking participants for their Office Workstation Comfort Study! This study seeks to collect extensive participation data to analyze occupant comfort and energy use within an open office environment. Data is gathered under natural and electric lighting conditions throughout the day. Paired with data gathered from sensory equipment, participants will communicate their visual and environmental preferences by completing questionnaires.

The study will be conducted in the ESBL lighting laboratory space in Pacific Hall room 103 on the University of Oregon Campus, spanning January through June 2019. This study utilizes a mock-up of typical open office workstations where participants are asked to engage in desk-based work tasks of their choosing. The study asks for participants to provide survey-based feedback every 2-hours about their visual comfort while working on self-directed tasks; be it homework, personal work, or professional work. As such, participants are asked to bring paper-based and/or computer-based materials of their choosing to work on during their 2-hour study period(s). However, these are not to include leisure or entertainment tasks. (ie. games, personal social media, video streaming services, etc.)

Participants are asked to commit to 2-hour time blocks, up to 8 hours a day. The ESBL is offering $10 compensation for every 2-hour block completed, up to 4 times per testing period. Hours to fall within a standard 8-hour workday (8:00am – 5:00pm). The study is expected to conduct 6 total testing periods between January and June of this year, and participants are invited to return for new testing periods should they wish.

Complete work you’d usually do at the library or in a coffee shop and make some money for your time!

If you’re interested in participating, please contact the Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory:ESBL@uoregon.edu

Call for Artist: Mural

My name is Victoria Sanne and I own a local Children’s resale boutique inside of the Gateway Mall.I would love to have a children’s mural painted on one of our very blank walls. We would pay for all of the paint and supplies. Above is a picture of the space I am thinking of using, however we could really use any wall. This one happens to be 6 ft. tall and roughly 40 ft in length.

A call would work great, and then we can set a time for the student to take a look at the wall. I am thinking a jungle scene would look really nice and kid friendly and using our logo as the hippo in the scene!

You do not Have to be Good this Friday

Hello Tropical friends,

2018 is behind us, a new year (and the rest of our season of programming) lies ahead. We have so many things on the horizon that we’re excited to share… Not to mention a lot of rad things going on around town! Make sure to check out the calendar at the end of this newsletter for your extracurricular arts programming this month! We’re still working on the documentation from our last show, Outside Inside, but take it from us- it looked amazing and was a great way to cap off the year.

We kick off 2019 with a show of work by Andrew Nigon, Ben Lenoir, and Susan Krueger-Barber, titled You do not Have to be Good. This multimedia exhibition addresses issues surrounding cultures of morality in conflict, and the reclamation of LGBTQ+ identity and aesthetics. The opening reception is TOMORROW, Friday January 11th from 6-9pm.
Susan Kruger-Barber – ” Latter-Day-Saint (Mormon) pioneers fled the settled United States after Joseph Smith was murdered and Nauvoo burned. In Utah, they suffered more persecution for practicing polygamy coupled with fighting for women’s suffrage. Carrying epigenetics of maltreatment, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints currently fights same-sex marriage and queer identity. Their LGBTQ* community lives on a rollercoaster of small gestures of acceptance and great acts of exclusion. LGBTQ* believers and somewhat allies survive on a yo-yo that rarely peaks and often plummets.”
Andrew Nigon – “My figurative work draws conceptual inspiration from Catholic symbolism with a focus on the human form theatrically displaying themes of trauma, decay, and resilience. My practice relies on a playful experimentation of material and process to create forms that challenge and manipulate established iconography. These works are heroic yet tragic monuments devoted souls trapped in an incomplete and imperfect world -the travails of walking a tightrope of religious participation within a place of patterned rejection.”
Ben Lenoir – “My practice begins in rumination and emotion, then ends in evaluation and reflection. This project began as a means to connect with the bullying I experienced as an adolescent. I connect to that experience through language since verbal abuse was central to it. I’ve been called ‘faggot’ over 1000 times in my life and I have written it just as many times in 2018. As the work evolved, the letterforms became increasingly abstracted—a kind of visual semantic saturation. The once perfectly formed words turned into gestures and suggestions rather than an epithet. The collection of works displayed here depict the experience of cognitive dissonance established by bullying based on sexual identity.”
