Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico
Winter: December 16, 2014 - January 16, 2015

The 360 XOCHI QUETZAL Artist and Writer's Residency Program is located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico on the shores of the largest lake in the country where the perfect year-round climate and stunning lake and mountain views have long established the region as an international artist mecca. We now offer four live/work spaces. Residents will be inspired by the natural beauty, history and culture of this special part of central Mexico.

MISSION: Our aim is to support artists, writers and musicians who would benefit from having uninterrupted time to devote to their creativity. By providing free housing and a generous food allowance, we hope that our residents can make artistic progress without the stress and distractions of daily life.

CRITERIA: National and international visual artists, photographers, writers, new media makers and musicians over the age of 25 are welcome to apply. We base our selections on artists who demonstrate artistic accomplishment, submit a well-conceived residency project, indicate that this residency will make a significant impact and provide evidence of the self-reliance required for a residency in the developing world. One of the live/work spaces is earmarked for a writer and one for an emerging artist. Two-person collaborative teams are also encouraged to apply.

STUDIO SPACE AND EQUIPMENT: We provide large work tables and generous wall space for visual artists. All live/work spaces have desks and free wi-fi. We offer a spinet piano for musicians and professional easel for painters. Plein air painters and artists who draw have endless access to warm, outdoor beauty and can also work in the patio of our downstairs casita. Ceramic artists have access to our Kress kiln which can fire up to cone 6. All spaces also have private kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms and full bathrooms.

FEES: This is a free one-month residency. Your residency offers you a private, fully equipped live/work space, free wi-fi, weekly maid service, a food stipend of $1,000 pesos plus all utilities. You will only need to pay for your laundry, local transportation, entertainment and additional food. International calls can be made via skype. You are responsible for your travel to and from Mexico. Depending on your arrival and departure times, our Program Administrator, Alberto Alvarado, may be able to pick you up at the airport. If not, it is easy to arrange an airport taxi which will cost $400 - 500 pesos each way depending on the time of day you travel.

Infinite Possibilities: Science, Math, Book Arts

Deadline: September 28, 2012 (ONLINE)

Infinite Possibilities: Science, Math, Book Arts
23 Sandy Gallery

Portland, Oregon
November 30 - December 29, 2012

23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present Infinite Possibilities, a juried exhibition of book art inspired by the world of math and science, real or imagined.

THEME: By those in the know, meaning those left-brained, analytical types, math and science are often described in artistic terms: the eloquence of an equation, the beauty of a concept. Infinite Possibilities looks at the opposite: how math and science can be used artistically to inspire book artists to think creatively about such topics. We are looking for book art works that incorporate mechanical and theoretical concepts, from serious to humorous exploring subjects ranging from math, science to medicine, space, architecture, engineering, physics, genetics and more.

MEDIA: This exhibit is open to book and paper arts related works created as either edition or one-of-a-kind. Artist books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, zines, broadsides and sculptural pieces are all encouraged. Any medium, any style, any size.

ENTRIES - A maximum of three works may be submitted per artist. Entries must be received online no later than midnight on SEPTEMBER 28, 2012. Artists submitting to this exhibition will be notified via email.

FEES - A $25 non-refundable entry fee covers up to three works and is payable upon submission.

INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS - Artists residing outside of the United States are welcome to enter this exhibition. The exhibition entry fee of $25 must be paid in US funds.

JURYING: This show will be juried by Laura Russell, the owner of 23 Sandy Gallery and by our guest co-juror Dina Scheel, a Bay-area book artist and collector.

AWARDS: Three artists will receive Best of Show Awards, which will include a special online portfolio and marketing campaign focusing on their work. All award winners will also be highlighted on the online catalog. Best of Show winners are selected upon installation of the show.

In addition, we will also award the Librarian's Choice Purchase Prize, which will be awarded based on ballots cast by our library and museum customers. The winning work or works will be purchased by the gallery and donated to our randomly selected voting libraries.
