New Media, No Boundaries
Deadline: Friday, September 25

VisArts at Rockville (an innovative art center in the Washington DC Metropolitan Region) is seeking works of art that use new media and technology to eliminate psychological or physical boundaries; and, challenge a gallery’s role as mediator between artworks and viewers. New media and technology have the power to eliminate conventional, artistic boundaries. Interactive art, for example, encourages viewers to complete the artwork by actively transforming it visually and conceptually. Artwork can be exhibited remotely, with only the concept (rather than the physical object) in a gallery. Likewise, a viewer may experience a work of art even if they are not in the gallery with the object. Works considered: Artwork with at least one component that uses an electrical and/or battery power source, and created in the past three years. The work does not have to be a physical, gallery object. For more information or to apply, go to www.visartscenter.org.

Deadline: Friday, October 02
A seasonal exhibition with cash awards.
Theme: Works utilizing, representing or inspired by light.
Show location: Annmarie Garden Sculpture Park & Arts Center, Solomons, Maryland.

Exhibition Dates: November 24, 2009-February 14, 2010. This call invites artists working with the medium or subject of light to submit works for inclusion in GLOW. A variety of works are sought, including neon, fiber optics, LED, luminous substances, light graffiti, projections, and other electrical or digital manifestations. Two-dimensional works that experiment with light are also welcome. Large to small scale installations, as well as completed works and/or proposed works will be considered.
