John Fries Award

interest section

This year’s Copyright Agency | Viscopy John Fries Award, which is a platform for some of the most engaging and experimental works from emerging Australian and New Zealand artists, opened for entries on Monday 3 March.
The annual non-acquisitive award of $10,000 is open to emerging artists of all ages and disciplines, who are Australian or New Zealand citizens or who have been resident in Australia or New Zealand for the 12 months prior to 6 May 2014. In 2014 the entry criteria has been simplified and only requires that entrants self-identify as emerging artists.
For the first time, the Award and Finalists’ Exhibition in August will be held at Galleries UNSW, COFA – the Award’s new venue partner in Paddington, Sydney
Viscopy director, John Fries Award judge and daughter of the late John Fries, Kath Fries, says the Award has “gone from strength to strength each year with many previous winners and finalists continuing to achieve other significant milestones in their careers. The Exhibition offers a glimpse of what’s occurring at the dynamic ‘emerging’ edge of the contemporary art scene, and heightens our expectations of the future.”
Once again, the Award’s Guest Curator is Sebastian Goldspink, whose experience leading initiatives like Alaska Projects and Art Month has helped to mature the Award to become a significant event in Australia’s arts and cultural calendar.
The 2013 John Fries Award was won by Jess Olivieri and Hayley Forward for their collaborative video work Harlequins Vs Visitors, which the judges described as directly reflecting the spirit of the award.
The award has been donated by the Fries family in memory of former Viscopy director and honorary treasurer, John Fries, who made a remarkable contribution to the life and success of Viscopy. The Award’s sponsors include: International Art Services, 10 group, Little Creatures Brewery, and Small Acres Cyder.

a dialogue on blue – ARTIST CALL OUT

This is a call out to everybody who engages with blue as a colour. In itself, this is
prescriptive but the sky is blue, the ocean is blue. Brett Whitley’s favourite colour was
ultramarine. Australia’s favourite bird (the Superb Fairy-wren) is bright blue. This colour can
represent the mind and metaphysical depth.

How do you respond to blue?
Iggy + Georgia are co-curating a show in January 2014 and we are inviting artists to explore
blue as colour/concept/emotion. All mediums welcome. Please submit proposals no later
than 5 Jan. Selected works must be delivered to the gallery no later than Mon 20 Jan.
When Wednesday 22 Jan 2014 (opening night), exhibition closes 7 Feb 2014

@ Verge Gallery, Jane Foss Russell Plaza, City Rd, University of Sydney
For more details or to submit a work, please contact Iggy and/or Georgia.

EspGallery
Dear ESP Gallery artists
ESP Gallery needs your help! We’ve had some shows fall through and we need some help with the rent. Or else we won’t be around in 2014. So we’re having a Christmas fundraiser and party! No entry fee this time, and we’ll split the sale price with you 50/50.

All works accepted – we would particularly like small items such as jewellery, cards, prints, scarves etc that would make good Christmas presents! But if you have some awesome bigger works, bring them along. As this is a fundraiser, we want to make sure works sell, so we will cap prices – anything from $10 – $500 is OK.

We’ll be having some fun too. Performances, a raffle, a silent auction and maybe a visit from Santa! Have you been naughty or nice? HO HO HO!!

Deliveries: ESP Gallery, Monday 8 Dec/ Tuesday 9 Dec 4 – 7pm
Opening: Saturday 14 December 4 – 6pm
Show: 14 December – 22 December

ENTRY FOR 2013 MORAN PRIZES ARE NOW OPEN
ENTRY FOR 2013 MORAN PRIZES ARE NOW OPEN
ENTER NOW FOR THE 2013 DOUG MORAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT PRIZE & MORAN CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRIZES

http://www.moranprizes.com.au/enter

THE MORAN PRIZES 2013 | CELEBRATING 25 YEARS
For 25 years, The Moran Prizes have been supporting the individuality of Australian artists and their talents.
In celebration of Australia’s bicentennial, Doug and Greta Moran established the Moran Arts Foundation, aiming to foster portraiture skills. Since 2007, the Foundation has also been a strong supporter of excellence in photography.
In a world focused on celebrity, The Moran Prizes are about the greatness in every Australian. Veteran art curator and director, Daniel Thomas AM will be again supporting The Moran Prizes, judging the 2013 portrait finalists along side Artist, Ben Quilty.
“I am honoured to be part of the judging process for the Moran Prizes in their 25th year. The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize allows unique individualities to shine. Besides celebrities, often only partly known to artists before a portrait-taking session, in the Moran we also encounter strong emotional connections between artists and long-familiar intimates. Two Australians, the winning artist and a sometimes humble sitter, will receive global attention from this, the world’s richest art prize.” – Daniel Thomas  AM
“I’ll be looking for good strong painting. I want to see more than just a likeness of the sitter. I want to see how that person sounds, how they have affected the artist, how they think and how their humanity has attracted the artist to work with them. I’m less interested in likeness and more interested in how paint can make me feel.”  – Ben Quilty
This year, the Moran Prizes will be hosted at Juniper Hall, in Paddington (Sydney). Juniper Hall is set to become the permanent home of The Moran Arts Foundation Collection and the venue for the annual exhibition of the Moran Prizes.
The historic Georgian building will become an important new exhibition space, displaying the winning works from this year’s competition.

——————————————-

Wallpeople is a collaborative art event that happens in 45 cities around the world at the same time. A street wall will become a makeshift outdoor gallery, where all participants may exhibit their own works and collaborate to create an improvised open-air museum.
This year, Sydney joins the global network of creatives for the first time, and invites all city artists & creative enthusiasts alike to join us on the 1st of June in Newtown.
Created in Barcelona in 2009, Wallpeople invites people to create and be part of a unique happening in an urban space, thus making an ephemeral street artwork.
Wallpeople 2013 – MUSIC EDITION
The guiding theme for 2013 is MUSIC. We want everyone to express their unique relationship with music, no matter what genre or style. The participants have two possibilities:
1. Reinterpret a song in an artistic format of choice: illustration, photography, text, painting, collage, canvas…
2. Create any works related to music in a general way: For example: a tribute to an artist, a concert, a musical moment of your life, your favourite style, musical origins…

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
1. Everyone can participate. You just need to join the event on Facebook.
2. On 1st of June at 12:00pm, go to Camperdown Memorial Rest Park in Newtown with one or more works made by you.
3. Works will be accepted in any format: drawing, painting, illustration, photography, collage, paste-up, comics, paper, cardboard, wood (light), fabric, crochet, prints, mixed compositions, plates, postcards, craft, origami, album covers, vinyl, painted cassettes, a post-it, etc.
4. Stick up your work(s) on the wall with the rest of the works. If your inspiration is a particular song, you must indicate its singer and name.
5. The organization shall have double-sided tape to stick their works attendees. We still ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING YOUR OWN MOUNTING TAPE OR ADHESIVE TAPE if possible, to facilitate the process. You can also BYO arts supplies as we encourage all participants to make live art creations.
6. Organization will mark the start and ending of the event (about 3-4 hours).
7. When the exhibition ends, you can take your work back or swap it with another participant’s, thus turning the event into an artistic exchange. If you want, you can write down your contact info, in case who took your work wants to contact you.

ACCEPTED FORMATS:
Light works which can be stuck up to the wall with adhesive tape.
Any techniques or formats are permitted, provided that the work refers to a musical subject
WE DON’T ACCEPT:
Works bigger than 1x1m.
Works that could cause damage to the wall. Drilling the wall is prohibited.
Works with offensive or discriminatory content.

SafARI 2014 National Call for Artist Submissions

SafARI is the unofficial fringe exhibition to the Biennale of Sydney, and 2014
will mark its fifth edition. SafARI showcases the work of emerging and
unrepresented Australian artists in multiple sites across Sydney, including
Artist Run Initiatives (ARIs) and public spaces. It is timed to coincide with
the crucial first opening weeks of the Biennale of Sydney in March 2014.
In the past, SafARI has exhibited the work of sculptors, photographers,
installation artists, painters, performance artists, ceramicists, printmakers,
digital, video and new media artists, and we are interested in representing the
diversity of Australian contemporary arts practice again in 2014. Previous
participants in SafARI have gone on to new heights in their practice and
careers; artists such as Clark Beaumont, Liam Benson, Tom Polo, Karla Dickens
and Mark Rodda.
SafARI is now calling for submissions from emerging and unrepresented artists
working across diverse media across Australia to be considered for SafARI 2014.
Solo artists and/or groups of one or more artists will be considered.

Submissions should include:
An artist statement (max 300 words)
A proposal of artworks/projects for SafARI 2014 (max 300 words)
Maximum of 10 images and/or footage

un magazine portada
Call for Proposals for un Magazine volume 7 issue 1

For this issue of un Magazine we want to explore concepts of knowledge and research and the role they play in the production of contemporary art.

Submissions can consider the means and methods by which contemporary artists produce and construct knowledge either by way of academic research or other non-academic, non- institutionalised forms of research or knowledge making. If we accept that our understanding of research practice in science is that it produces ‘new’ or ‘important’ or ‘significant’ knowledge, then what knowledge, if any, is produced by an artwork? Is it possible for an artwork to produce new or important or significant knowledge? And if it does, what form does this take?

un Magazine is interested in articles written by artists as well as by writers that may take the form of research based feature articles, interviews or reviews that address these questions and others related to examining the relationship between contemporary art, research, and knowledge. Proposals for artist pages are also invited and encouraged.

un Magazine content:
We welcome proposals for contributions including but not limited to: criticism or review of contemporary independent art projects, exhibitions and publications (taking place since March 2013); interviews; essays and features on topics that can contribute to current debate; and contributions of experimental contemporary art practice engaged with text, writing or publication modes. Priority is also given to art projects and organisations that are often overlooked by mainstream art publications.

Please email:

-A completed Application Form (PDF) (dowload from un Projects.org.au)
-100 word outline of your proposed writing or an example, or mock-up or description of a proposed artwork
-Full curriculum vitae and a short sample of writing if you are proposing a text contribution
-2-5 images (as small jpeg files only) if relevant
-All submissions and editorial enquiries should be emailed to the Editor: jarrod@unmagazine.org

Applications due 5pm Monday 11 March 2013

Ever wanted to learn more about the intricacies of the Riso printer? Keen to be part of the core group of people who keep the machine and open print sessions going? Want (limited) out of hours access to the machine? Ever wanted to be paid to teach others how to use the stencil press?

Enrol in our 1 day volunteer training day and get qualified to be an open print volunteer – you’ll be the one helping others in the community use the machine on an open print studio day.

The course is at The Oxford St Design Store (58 Oxford St) from 12-5pm on Sunday 17 March and it’s FREE! But we ask you commit to volunteering for at least 3 open print sessions over the next 6 months.

You’ll learn how to troubleshoot printing, how the administrative and financial side of the collective works (it’s easy, we promise!) and the house rules of the space we’re in. Once you’ve done the course you’ll be rostered on to Saturday open print studio shifts, and can use the machine before and after the sessions for your own printing (at cost price).

After you’ve volunteered for three open print studios we’d love you to keep volunteering, and also think about taking on paid roles running workshops in the space – all our paid workshops include a teaching fee for collective members who teach the courses.

Email us at workshop@rizzeria.com if you want to enrol or have any questions.
When: 12:00pm until 5:00pm
@ Rizzeria Printer – 58 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst

INSTUDIO with Laura Jones

3 03 2013


Laura Jones 2013 instudio

30 year old painter and printmaker from Sydney.

2) Explain your current body of work?

Currently I am working on a series of still life paintings. I bring flowers from my work at a flower shop to the studio and paint them over the course of 2 or 3 days. The paintings encapsulate their decay because I respond to them as I see them over that period of time. The flowers are always changing and so interesting shifts occur over the course of the painting, creating slightly abstracted forms that overall have the feeling of being a “flower.” I love the symbolism they hold and the metaphorical power that they have.

3) If you can pick one artist as an inspiration, who would it be and why?

Can I pick three?
Lara Merrett for her fluidity. I share a studio with her and her paintings are quite autobiographical in a way. I think she is a wonderful and clever colourist. Her work is reflective of her life as a vibrant woman and artist. Also, I’m looking a lot at Margaret Olley and Margaret Preston at the moment.

I love the strong graphic elements of Preston’s work. Her printmaking and compositional design is inspiring. I lived in Japan as a high school student and was drawn to woodblock prints. I am still influenced by this aesthetic when it comes to flowers, the simplification of them and strong use of shape, decoration and colour.

Margaret Olley- I delivered her some flowers once through my work as a florist. I told her I was an artist and she started to give me advice- she told me “whatever you do… don’t get a grant!”. She told me that she thought that work was very important to young artists, to learn the value of the money that they earnt. I have embraced my work as a florist and can see a synergy in the way I work. I draw from it to make my paintings better. She inspired me with her character, talent and drive.

4) With your own art practice, where would you like to be in 10 years.

I’d like to be making beautiful paintings in a studio in a country garden. Showing interstate and overseas. Working across mediums.

5) What kind of art training have you had?

I studied Art History and Theory in my undergraduate degree at Sydney Uni when I was doing an Asian Studies degree in Japanese language there. I did a few Tin Sheds courses as well. Then I completed a Master of Art at COFA in Printmaking and Painting. I’ve always done life drawing and did a drawing marathon in New York last year at the New York Studio School as well.

6) Can you tell us about your process when creating an artwork?

I like to paint from life whether it be portraits or still life. I like the challenge and the speed required for it! It forces me to be decisive and bold. I make a loose underpainting in bright colours and then work all over the whole surface evenly until it builds up. I work in bursts and sit back on my couch to look at it until I’m ready to jump up again. I like to keep moving through the work.

7) In the arts is social media helpful or not and why?

I use instagram to upload photographs of my work in progress and studio. I think it can support your online presence by being a more casual and conversational platform than your website. I love taking photos so instagram suits me. It has opened up my work to a wider audience and I’ve had a few opportunities come my way because of it.

8) What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard someone say about your own work?

I can’t remember. Plenty.

9) What’s next on the agenda?

More flower paintings and studio interiors, and nudes.
Maunsell Wickes Gallery in March.

10) What is your advice to children who want to be artists?

Draw, paint, make, do. Doing is the most important. You just know it in your bones if you want to be an artist, and you won’t
be able to help it anyway, so make sure you follow your instincts when it comes to deciding whether to keep going with it.

11) How are you finding the current art market?

It seems fine at my level but I think this current state of flux effects more established artists and it’s hard for people to find galleries to show with.

12) Name four things that you can’t do without in your studio?

My brown couch that cost $70 when I had a studio in Windsor. It’s been with me in every studio I’ve had, I’m so attached to it!
Tea or Coffee
Paint
Something to paint on.

13) If you couldn’t be an artist what would you be?

A pilot.
