Artists, filmmakers and performers
Beyond the Lucky Break is seeking work from artists, filmmaker and performers for a May 19 show titled Re: Vision. The works, according to BTLB, should "explore the theme of vision or revision (using formal or conceptual methods). These may be in ways that are quite straightforward, or which are abstract, conceptual or in other ways surprising or inventive. Beyond the Lucky Break is eager to see just how you make work of any media or genre (video, paint, collage, photography, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, performance, music, etc.) sharing your own perspective as a source of inspiration and exploration." Artists should submit 3 images of work (and performers should submit a video sample) along with their name, e-mail address, and phone number to Bluestreetfilms@gmail.com. The resulting show will open on May 19 and run through June 9 at 1310 Gallery in Fort Lauderdale. Deadline is March 15.
For Undergrounds Coffeehaus's next exhibition, follow the yellow brick road to the part of your brain reserved for ruby slippers, flying monkeys, lollipop kids, munchkins, scarecrows and cowardly lions. The theme is The Wizard of Oz and artists are asked to consider the book, movie or adaptations such as Wicked or the Tin Man Sci-Fi series. All mediums are welcome and those interested in submitting work for the Fort Lauderdale cafe's show should e-mail Aileen Liptak through Undergrounds Facebook page. The deadline is March 17 and the show will be held March 24.

The art of drinking wine in Miami
Jordan Vineyard and Winery is celebrating its 40th with its 4 on 4 Art Competition, billed as "a four-city initiative [Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Dallas] that challenges local artists to create a commemorative work of art that blends the elegance of Jordan wines with the flavor of each city."
Bakehouse Art Complex, which is organizing the Miami competition, will accept submissions from artists who live and work in Miami-Dade, Broward or Monroe County, through 5 p.m. March 10 (at 561 N.W. 32nd Street, Miami 33127) or online (http://blog.jordanwinery.com/2012/01/4on4-art-competition-miami-artist-call-for-entries-contest-overview-submission-guidelines). The grand prize is "$5,000 and the opportunity to be featured in two art exhibitions, publicity campaigns and Jordan 40th anniversary commemorative gifts. The winning work will be transformed into a limited-edition piece which will be distributed to Jordan's loyal customers across South Florida." Runner-up and second runner-up receive $2,000 and $1,000 respectively and the chance to be featured in two art shows.
The Top 40 South Florida artists will be elected to participate in a March 29 show at the Bakehouse, where judges will select 10 works to be shown April 2 at a private Miami Beach event where the grand prize and runners-up (as judged by NBC Miami co-anchor Roxanna Vargas, Gallery Diet director Nina Johnson, ArtNexus associate publisher Susanne Birbragher and Michael Schwartz of Michael's Genuine) will be named.
|Artist and curator AdrienneRose Gionta has a new project in the works. Like Say My Name, one of her previous projects (see above), it's about her name. It's also about you ... if you participate. (Photo courtesy of the artist)|
Artist and curator AdrienneRose Gionta is seeking collaborators for her Sign My Name project, and taking part is ever so easy-peasy. All participants must do is sign AdrienneRose Gionta's name on a piece of paper and include their name, age, current location, relation to artist (how you know her), motto and favorite color on the back of their submission or in a separate e-mail.
Collaborators should then mail their signature of AdrienneRose's name(AdrienneRose Gionta, c/o MBUS, 420 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach FL 33139) or photograph or scan it and then e-mail it her Adriennerose.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Says Gionta in her statement: "I am interested in collecting and observing the differences and similarities in how each person that is connected to me signs my name. My signature of my name along with your signature of my name will be analyzed by a graphologist. Each signature, along with the results, will be compiled into the Sign My Name project catalog. Select signatures will be produced as neon signs for a future installation."
I love easy-peasy fun projects, so count me in. Deadline is May 1.
