Imago Foundation for the Arts, Warren, RI, announces Wish You Were Here, a call for mail art. Mail art? It sounds made up, but it’s a real niche art movement. Mail art grew out of the Fluxus movement during the 1950s and has grown ever since!

So, send your artwork on a postcard. Content of the artwork is open to interpretation of the theme: Wish You Were Here, and it will be on view March 5 through June 13, in our gallery and online.

Hera Gallery/Hera Educational Foundation seeks works that address current turmoil and transformation

Juried by Francine Weiss, Senior Curator at the Newport Art Museum
Deadline for submissions is March 1

2020 was a year that was filled with worldwide turmoil. The Pandemic. Another reckoning with racism and police brutality. Climate Change, wildfires, hurricanes and droughts. The undermining and politicization of science. The widening political divide. An election with voting rights, healthcare, immigration, paid sick leave, income inequality, living wages, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, our environment and the future of democracy at stake.

Is this turmoil leading to transformation? And what kind of transformation is it going to be?

Hera Gallery/Hera Educational Foundation is looking for work that addresses the current turmoil and visions of our future. What are the emotional, physical and spiritual effects of the turmoil and how might they manifest into the transformation? What does our world look like and what might it look like post-2020. Will transformation reflect the multiplicity of voices of America? How will our future be transformed by the current chaos?

We are seeking work in all media that reflect aspects of the turmoil and how they may serve as a catalyst for transformation including utopian and dystopian visions, Afrofuturism, speculative artwork, science fiction, and other post-modern themes.

Jamestown Arts Center Announces A Mythic Pause

The Weight of Awe by Molly Kaderka

The Jamestown Arts Center (JAC) announces A Mythic Pause exhibition featuring artists Molly Kaderka and Kit Howland opening Thursday, March 5th 6-8pm. A Mythic Pause creates an immersive environment with Kaderka’s latest large-scale, site-specific paintings laminated directly to the walls. Using a combination of printmaking, drawing and painting, Kaderka depicts two different realms: the celestial and the terrestrial. Framed by a tactile printed rock surface, the circular compositions act as an aperture to the distant and intangible stars.  Kaderka explores deep time embodied in geological formations and the night sky engaged in a delicate interplay of terrestrial and celestial realms.

Exhibition Dates: March 5 – April 11
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5th 6-8pm
Gallery Hours: Wed. – Sat. 10am-2pm, or by appointment
