Call for Art, Essays, Etc.

December 1, 2014

GRAPHITE is seeking original artwork, essays, reviews, criticism, interviews, and essays from graduate and undergraduate students nationwide for its fifth annual issue, organized around the concept of Networks. All disciplinary fields are welcome to submit until January 9, 2015 at 5pm.

Practice can exist anywhere and take any form. It can be sustained for days or decades. It is action and abstinence. Physical and mental exercise. Social and solitary. In speaking of practice, we are reminded of words like goal, routine, method, production, repetition, soccer, performance, yoga, exercise, medicine, training, praxis. It refers to self-development and change over time, and speaks potently to our most personal desires. Practice involves an intentional selection of one path over another at any given time. However, the word itself, its meaning and its implications are ambivalent, non-linear and far-reaching.

Call for Art: Outbreak

November 3, 2014

Now that gay marriage has erupted into mainstream…

• Is queerness losing it’s designation as a subculture?
• What if any, are the down sides of acceptance?
• Does queer art exist inside or outside the traditional
patriarchal and kyriarchical Art World?
• Are LGBTQA artists working in opposition to these
• Is there such a thing as a queer aesthetic?
• How does the LGBTQA (re)define family values?

All self identified LGBTQA artists residing in the United States and Canada are invited to submit works for consideration. Open all traditional and nontraditional visual arts media.
No Entry Fee.
The exhibition will be on display in the Sarah Silberman Gallery at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD from March 3 - April 3, 2015.

Crushed Ivory Challenge

September 15, 2014

Elephant poaching is at its highest level in decades and it continues to rise. More than 35,000 elephant were killed in 2013 for the illegal ivory trade. These animals are being slaughtered across Africa to meet an insatiable global demand for ivory. Scores of the park rangers who work to protect them have also been killed.

We’re asking for your help in turning the crushed ivory into educational tools that can be distributed around the country. Through this pro-bono design challenge, you have the opportunity to create a compelling, thought provoking, informative and impactful display to increase awareness about our fight against illegal wildlife trade.
