call for submissions

         Call for Submissions!

Swerve Literary Journal, a student-run literary and arts journal at the University of Mary Washington, is seeking submissions from now until April 2nd, 2013. We are accepting exceptional works of art from genres including but not limited to: visual arts, photography, multimedia/music, poetry, SHORT fiction, and nonfiction. We welcome submissions regarding all topics, providing they are in keeping with the mission statement below:

There is no straight course. The path is warped and twisted. You can change your course or you can change yourself, but you have to swerve either way. Sometimes when you swerve to avoid something, you swerve into a new direction. Swerving can even happen within the self.

Where do you go when you deviate from where you once thought you’d go? How does this abrupt and unexpected swiveling enhance a life…and a self?

We invite you to ruminate on these questions and genres, and to play with the digital landscape in ways that you think would befit the interplay between and among them. We welcome pieces that bend, defy, or help reshape “traditional” genres, as well.

For further information and instructions regarding submission, please visit us at If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact us at Thank you for considering Swerve!

MFA Photography Juried Exhibition kickstarter

The MFA Photography Juried Exhibition kickstarter is raising money for the gallery show as well as a full-color exhibition catalog.

Please go to
to help with a pledge.

Photography exhibition and catalog featuring MFA candidates at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
  • Launched: Mar 6, 2013
  • Funding ends: Mar 30, 2013
For the first time photography students from the Savannah College of Art and Design are are curating a group exhibition featuring MFA candidates who are soon to be graduating.
With the participation of jurors Ellen Wallenstein from NYC and Scott Dietrich from Hong Kong, twelve artists have been selected to exhibit some of the best work currently coming out of the Savannah and Atlanta photography departments.
With your help we plan to raise $2,750 to hold an exhibition at the Ashmore Gallery located in Savannah, Georgia accompanied by a full-color catalog. We hope to distribute this catalog to various institutions across the United States furthering the exposure of participating artists.
With each pledge you will be helping these artists further their artistic endeavors and supporting an up and coming community of artists currently working in the Southeast.
We thank you for your time and your support.
Each of the twelve exhibiting artists are currently enrolled in the Master's program at the Savannah College of Art and Design. The financial requirements of producing a gallery exhibition and full- color exhibition catalog are more than each of us can fund.
We are committed to our craft and know that our dedication will ensure a successful final exhibition.

All women artists, including self-identified women, may submit original works of art.

CURRENTS Exhibition Series 2014:
"A 'Womanhouse' or a Roaming House? "A Room of One's Own" Today"
Curated by:
MIRA SCHOR , artist and writer

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for CURRENTS , a timely and innovative biennial exhibition series. CURRENTS addresses contemporary issues that warrant expanded critical attention in the art world. A.I.R. invites non-traditional curators (artists, activists, writers,) to collaborate with the gallery in developing the exhibition theme.

AIR's third presentation our CURRENTS exhibition series will be curated by Mira Schor, entitled "A 'Womanhouse' or a Roaming House? "A Room of One's Own" Today," and revisits the requisite territory for artistic production by women visual artists suggested by Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own and articulated at Womanhouse in Los Angeles in 1972.


As many around the world are considering reviving the model of the commons as an alternative to global capitalism's privatization of the social, and as local geographies compete with global identities, this exhibition considers the following questions: What is the room today? Who occupies it? What is the space necessary for an artist to make art in and for whom? Rather than a "Womanhouse" ought we now envision a Rooming House or a Roaming House? This exhibition invites artists working in a variety of media from video, photography, painting, sculpture and installation, and collaborations in all media to interpret the theme in any way that takes into account the gendering of space, the ownership of domestic space, and ideas about the basis of creativity as either a private pursuit or a public one.

Juror: Mira Schor is a painter and writer living in New York City. Her primary subject has been the embodiment of meaning within the material and pictorial qualities of painting, balancing political and theoretical concerns with formalist and material passions. She received her MFA from CalArts and has been the recipient of awards in painting from the Guggenheim, Marie Walsh Sharpe, and Pollock-Krasner Foundations, as well as the College Art Association's Frank Jewett Mather Award for Art Criticism and a Creative Capital / Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. She is the author of A Decade of Negative Thinking: Essays on Art, Politics, and Daily Life and the blog A Year of Positive Thinking, as well as the author of Wet: On Painting, Feminism, and Art Culture and the co-editor, with Susan Bee, of M/E/A/N/I/N/G. She has recently shown her work at CB1 Gallery in Los Angeles and Marvelli Gallery in New York City.

Call For Entires: REDUX

Desotorow Gallery is proud to support Earth Day with their annual REDUX show.

All work submitted for REDUX must be made from recycled materials and should celebrate environmental consciousness or draw attention to the major environmental issues of our time.

Consider such recent events as oil spills, destructive weather patterns caused by climate change, overpopulation, urban domination, and more. Artists such as Robert Smithson, Henry Dean, Andy Goldsworthy, and Christo and Jeanne-Claude all explore the relationships between human beings and their environment. They manipulate landscapes, create found object sculptures, or even (in the case of Henry Dean) submerge canvases in muddy marshes for weeks.

If art truly is the conscience of a society, what does it have to say about our impact on the earth?

Submissions due digitally by Friday April 5
$25 for 3 works, $30/5
