Deadline: 28.2.2018
No application fee


The second international Alps Art Academy will take place between June 28 and July 7, 2018 in the Safiental (Grisons, Switzerland). Located 1650 meters above sea level in Tenna, the biennial summer academy focuses on Land and Environmental Art.

In a dialogue with the art-historical movement of the 60s and 70s, contemporary approaches to art are located, discussed and further developed with relationship to the Alpine landscape. The Alps Art Academy creates a platform for proposals for a possible future Land Art, which integrates not only landscape and nature but also other media and the wider social context.

An invitation to submit proposals is aimed equally and without age limit at artists who are interested in working with landscape and the environment, as well as theoreticians, facilitators and curators engaged in research on the topic of Land Art. You are invited to apply with a project idea that can be realized during the period in which the summer school takes place. The theme for 2018 is HORIZONTAL - VERTICAL.


The academy offers about 25 participants a 10 day program consisting of workshops, master classes, symposium, field trips, artist talks and presentations, in which they will have the opportunity to explore different aspects and core problems of art production in the landscape and apply what they have learned to their own projects. Participants are accompanied practically and theoretically by international lecturers. The Academy is linked to the Land Art-Biennale Art Safiental (July 7 to October 21, 2018) and offers participants the opportunity to present their projects.


Matthias Bildstein (A/CH), Mirja Busch (D), DIG Collective (William Bock, Alberto Duman, Mark Morgan, UK), William L. Fox, Gabriela Gerber / Lukas Bardill (CH), Johannes Hedinger (CH), Hanna Hölling (UK), Steve Rowell (USA), Analia Saban (ARG/USA), Konstanze Schütze (D), Chris Taylor (USA) and other guests.

OPEN CALL: apexart International Open Call 2018-19

No experience required, only great ideas.
Deadline: March 1, 2018, 11:59PM EST
Application fee: FREE

OPEN CALL: apexart International Open Call 2018-19

From February 1 - March 1, 2018 apexart is accepting proposals for its International Open Call for exhibitions. Three winning proposals will be presented as part of apexart’s 2018-19 exhibition season, and can take place anywhere in the world, except for New York City. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit proposals online. 

  • The Submission Process: Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images may be included within the application - just describe the exhibition you want to create and why. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and must be submitted in English, and submitters must have visited the proposed exhibition location previously. This year’s submission form also requires the listing of three potential artists, though this list will not be reviewed by the jury. Proposals are judged only by their content and the organizer’s ability to communicate, rather than by familiar names or past accomplishments.


  • The Selection Process: An international jury, composed of more than 150 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, rates the proposals. Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows many jurors to individually review a subset of proposals. Submissions are made anonymous and randomized for juror review, and apexart does not influence the results of the jury. The organizers of the three highest-ranked proposals each receive an honorarium and funding for the selected exhibition proposal, and work closely with the apexart team to turn their idea into an apexart exhibition. 

To submit an exhibition proposal, visit by March 1, 2018.



Reflection: Contemporary Portraiture Exhibition

Call for Submissions
Deadline: 16th March 2018
Submission fee: one portrait for £10, three for £15 and six for £25


At Surface Gallery this spring, artists are invited to explore ‘what is portraiture today?’
Portraits have always been more than just a record. They have been used to display the power, beauty, or other less tangible qualities of the subject. From cave paintings to modern photography, portraiture has been rejuvenated by new mediums throughout history. This process has continued into the 21st century, as we see how portraiture has been transformed in a world of prominent and diversified visual culture dominated by modern technology.

All submissions will be considered. Any genre, subject or approach is welcome. Self-portraits and artworks that explore the artist-sitter relationship are admissible, as Nadar once said; ‘The portrait I do best is of the person I know best.’ Alongside artworks on paper and canvas, submissions that explore different mediums, including sculpture, sound and moving image are encouraged. We are looking for innovative and critically informed work, as well as technical skill. The show will be held in Surface Gallery’s main exhibition space.

One exhibitor will be awarded a show in Surface Gallery’s main exhibition space. This will be an opportunity for the selected artist to showcase new work in a contemporary art gallery. A selection panel will choose the winner of the prize.

Deadline for submissions: Midnight Friday 16th March 2018

Application packs can be downloaded from or paper copies can be picked up from the gallery during opening hours.

Each artist can submit one portrait for £10, three for £15 and six for £25.

Successful artists for this juried open will be notified by Monday 19th March 2018.

Exhibition Dates: 14th April – 28th April 2018

The show began in 1987 as a wearable art show but has evolved over the years to include a compelling mix of traditional and non-traditional works created from natural or synthetic fibers, and work that addresses the subject or medium of fiber.

Paducah becomes a Mecca for quilters and quilt enthusiasts each April as more than 30,000 visitors from across the globe attend AQS QuiltWeek. This year’s AQS QuiltWeek dates are April 18 - 21, 2018.

JUROR: Arturo Alonzo Sandoval
Arturo Alonzo Sandoval is a fiber artist whose experimental techniques and expressive interpretations have earned him an international reputation. Arturo is one of Kentucky's most original, influential and significant artists. Because he creates an extensive collection of work his artwork is everywhere. His work is in the collections of the New York City Museum of Modern Art's Architecture and Design Collection, as well as galleries and private collections throughout the United States and the world.

What distinguishes me from other artists working in fiber is my choice to mainly explore and recycle twentieth century industrial materials that have been primarily designed as tapes or films. Incorporating them into woven or interlaced webs provides for me permutations for my design concepts which are personalized into a visual vocabulary of the sky, water, landscape; and more recently, issues related to international and domestic politics, terrorism, the total nuclear threat, the cosmic realms, and personal spiritual beliefs.


Artists may submit up to 5 distinct artwork entries with 3 images each entry. Each submission is $25 and should consist of 1 single artwork represented by 1 to 3 images (multiple full views and/or details may be included). A new application should be completed for each subsequent artwork up to 5 entries in total.

Grace ( is investigating modes of being/doing/inhabiting middle age!

Three days a week (noon-6pm) there will be workshops, talks, screenings and performance... each week has a theme from make-up to drag to how we dress. We will devise and perform pieces for a final cabaret open to the public. Our work will be documented for a follow-on publication—all participants will be acknowledged/included and receive copies.
