"Based on Antonio di Benedetto's classic of Argentine literature, Lucrecia Martel's Zama is a beguiling, haunting, comic indictment of the ills of colonialism."

- Matthew Anderson, Cinevue
From Argentine film director Lucretia Martel comes the story of Don Diego de Zama, an 18th century officer of the Spanish Crown who spends years waiting for a transfer letter from the King that never comes.

Carla Munsat and Gallery Artists
"A Delicate Balance"
Carla Munsat

In this exhibition, Carla Munsat strikes a “delicate balance” between two very different kinds of work: acrylic paintings on panel and canvas, and collages using birch wood and mixed media. She says that “both are a highly personal search for a resolution. It is the search that excites me.”

While the paintings are about “change and life’s unpredictability,” the collages allow Munsat to explore found objects in terms of “texture, pattern, opacity, transparency, and surprise.” She is intrigued by the variations found in birch.

Created over the last three years, both the paintings and the collages focus on literally trying to put the pieces together. Featured in the exhibition are over a dozen 12”x12” paintings and two dozen 11”x14” birch collages.

Artist Statement:
For me artistic creation is a road that leads from thought, through search, to discovery. The goal is to make a painting that holds my interest, but the destination is not predetermined as the journey itself is of primary significance. This concept of the journey is a philosophical one that I have been drawn to for a very long time. It is a central theme found in literature, film, music and the visual arts. The journey motif defies time and the bounds of culture and I see an intrinsic power in it.

May 4th Deadline!

In response to the success of the 2015- 2017 Summer Sculpture Showcases, Gilbert Boro, owner and sculptor at Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds, is pleased to announce Summer Sculpture Showcase 2018!
The Summer Sculpture Showcase, which will be on display from June 4th - October 26th 2018, is part of a year round outdoor sculptural exhibit on 4.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens located along the banks of the Lieutenant River in the historic, art-centric community of Old Lyme, Connecticut.
This 4th annual Summer Sculpture Showcase offers a unique opportunity for established artists to exhibit their work in an interactive location, while also effectively creating a new exhibition within the expansive Sculpture Gardens. This call for entry invites artists to submit up to four large or small-scale outdoor sculptural works, as well as proposals for site-specific/ecological installations. The deadline for submissions is May 4th, 2018 and artists will be notified of acceptance the second week of May 2018.
For submission information and a full prospectus, please visit our website www.sculpturegrounds. com.

We encourage you to participate and share this Call for Entry with your art community!

Thank you and we look forward to viewing your artwork!

Submissions can be made via our website.
 Click to view the full prospectus.

Juried by Richard Sprengeler, this all media exhibition invites artists to submit works based on their use of a "colorless" palette.

This all media exhibition invites artists to submit works based on their use of a "colorless" palette. Sometimes a monochrome palette can say more than a full spectrum of color and create a striking contrast. Artists are invited to share work that is composed of a majority of black, white, and all shades in between.


If you didn't get a chance to enter the 2018 CSF Symposium Exhibit, you still can.

 We've extended the deadline to Friday, May 11th!

Entry Deadline: Friday, May 11th

Atrium Gallery, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, 1 Capitol Hill, Providence RI

The original concept and vision was created by a Rhode Island neurosurgeon, Dr. Petra Klinge.  Her vision for the exhibition is to capture through artistic renderings the "essence" of a clinical disorder, specifically those associated with cerebrospinal fluid and connective tissue disorders.  Dr. Klinge reflects upon these artworks as part of her annual medical symposium held at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and utilizes them to assist physicians and scientists to both gain a better understanding of the patient experience and create empathy for the patient's condition.

Art Exhibition

Raised in beautiful Northwestern Connecticut, my work reflects and is inspired by my awe and love of nature. Having spent the majority of my childhood roaming the woods, crossing brooks, splashing in ponds, biking daily, and skipping through meadows, the wondrous landscapes of Northwestern Connecticut are part of who I am. A walk in the forest is magical, the most cathartic rejuvenation. Oil is my preferred medium, because the colors are vibrant and rich, which allows me to capture light, reflections, and textures in my artwork. Many of my works are based on photos of real places or destinations I have traveled to, combined with imaginative elements, to create a feeling of serenity along with a touch of mystique. It is my sincere hope that my work reminds people of the beauty of Mother Earth, and the great need to care for her. My goal is to create beautiful works that attract, fascinate, and most of all, bring peace to the viewer's soul.

Join us for the opening reception of a comic themed art show, curated by Brad Sheridan.

Comics are playing a big role in art. Since we've been painting on cave walls, even. And yet, most people view comics as either men in tights or some kind of funny animal eating lasagna. The concept of this show is to take your initial ideas of what comics are 
(and what they could be), and turn it on it's head.

“Live. Create. Tell the story. Repeat.” - anonymous

Alice Hutchinson, the proprietor of Byrd's Books, Bethel's award-winning, independent bookstore, located at 126 Greenwood Avenue across from P.T. Barnum Square, is always there with something to sink your teeth into, whether a good book or the community to which she is devoted.

On Friday, April 13th, Byrd's Books  will host the debut of Emerge, a new series of imaginative, dynamic, storytelling photographs by Bethel artist, Hannah Munroe. 
At 6:30pm, an art opening and wine and cheese reception will be held, free and open to the public.

Featured Artists

Elisa Tenenbaum - Oil on Wheel Covers
Elisa Tenenbaum’s wheel cover paintings combine a distinctive botanical oil painting style with repurposed stainless steel wheel covers. Tenenbaum says, “I started working with the wheel covers about eight years ago when I had the desire to drastically change the format of my paintings. The idea of re-purposing a found object appealed to me, economically and environmentally, and I like the way the decorative quality of the metal becomes an instant frame.” Born in Tennessee and raised in Atlanta, Tenenbaum received her M.F.A. from the University of Hartford, and remained in Connecticut working as an illustrator, fine artist and professor of art at Central Connecticut State University. 

Chinnyere McPherson - FASCHINN - Introduces her new Wild HeART collection.
The Wild HeART collection tells a story of an individual who has a vibrant soul and identifies as a free spirit. Going back to McPherson’s original design roots, vibrant, saturated colors are at the forefront of this collection with black and white as the foundation. Playing with texture and movement, Wild HeART will bring an authentic, flirty and classic vibe.

Alexia LaLande
Studio a-lala will be going back to its scientific illustration roots and making anatomy related sculptures.

Andre Rochester will spice up the night doing live painting.

The 7th International Photography Annual Exhibition-In-Print
An Award-winning Peer-juried Publication of Works of Contemporary Photography & Other Lens-Based Art

$2,000 in prizes, including a $1,200 first place award
INPHA is not a gallery exhibition. It does not require shipping works to Manifest. It is an award-winning non-profit hardcover annual publication with cash awards.
INPHA is open to a very broad range of lens-based and photographic submissions. This annual project is not just for 'photographers' and 'photography' but also for anyone working creatively in a visual art (or design) field with work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in some significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes. As with all Manifest projects, we are open to learning just what's being done that fits within this broad scope.

Each INPHA is an approximate three-year survey of imagery that rises above the ubiquity of images in our world today.

Submission deadline EXTENDED: April 30, 2018
