CALL TO ARTISTS: Group Exhibit, Tephra Institute, Reston, VA
DEADLINE: Friday, May 31, 2024                           
EXHIBITION DATES: Saturday, December 14, 2024– Saturday, February 22, 2025
FEE: $25
This year, Guest Curator Liz Ensz will work with three selected artists to develop a group exhibition, for which each artist creates and presents new work.
This exhibition will focus on the associative power of materials, and how they contribute to the meaning of the artwork, with a focus on textile practices. Because of the way that information becomes encoded within textiles, they have the power to embody and express culture. Interconnection is a fundamental quality of textile construction, and social interconnection is a fundamental aspect of their production. The flexible language of loops, knots, interlacements, and attachments all speak to the relationships of which our world is made. The cumulative and entangled way of building, joining many parts together as one, and organic growth taking place over time through repetition, echoes ecological, social, and political systems.
PLEASE NOTE: all eligible artists are encouraged to apply regardless of whether an artist is working with fiber. Artists working with a range of traditional material practices and experimental forms are welcome to apply.

CALL TO ARTISTS AND WRITERS: Contributors for digital publication Movable Type, 1455 Literary Arts, USA
DEADLINE: rolling

1455 is always looking for fresh, original contributions to its bi-monthly digital publication Movable Type. Originally conceived as a magazine "by writers for writers" 1455 has greatly expanded its scope and seeks to celebrate storytelling of all types. In 2022, the goal is a more diverse, inclusive multimedia experience; as such, we welcome poetry, flash fiction, essays, memoir, illustrations, visual art, comics, and recorded video of music or dance (interviews and artist statements are also considered). Having already showcased best-selling authors, academics, and creatives, the goal is to further establish Movable Type as a provocative forum for meaningful engagement with art.

Each issue of Movable Type revolves around a theme, and 1455 welcomes submissions year-round. Each issue will be accompanied by a live (virtual) reading, featuring the contributors. Please see the themes for 2022 and send your original work (poetry, fiction, essays, memoir, visual art, photography, etc.) to info@1455litarts.org
