Ground Floor Gallery + Studios
Location: Nashville, TN
Calling all artists, please submit your work to Ground Floor Gallery + Studios’ 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibition— Rhythm and Rush. Rhythm and Rush seeks to find work that provokes movement, atmosphere, and speed in both conceptual and formal ways within all media. The ways in which the picture frame is questioned, expanded or uniquely considered while being provocative, contemporary and personal are elements of this show concept. The juror, Catherine Haggarty is curious about the ways in which the speed of image consumption, and image promotion affects artists today – or the ways in which it does not affect them. Rhythm and Rush is an open consideration to the lens in which we all are living and working in. Slow, fast, static, haptic, and rhythmic can be presented in many ways – we are seeking works that touch on these ideas in very specific, sensitive and strong ways
Deadline: July 15

Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artist Residency
Location: New Smyrna Beach, FL
The Master Artist Residency is unique in that it is a mentoring program that couples prominent Master Artists with selected Associate Artists for three week periods. Since residencies are process based, and not product-driven, time can be spent on previously existing projects, on new experiments, or on collaborations. The residency is also unique in that it focuses on creating conversations and the sharing of ideas between three disciplines per program, which can include visual artists, writers, dancers, and musicians as well as many other types of art. ACA believes that the spirit and challenges of being an artist are shared by all disciplines and that we can learn much from coming together, sharing our work and ideas, and collaborating on projects. Please visit About the Master Artists-in-Residence Program to learn more.
