Solid Ground_Echoes_WebButton
Call for Proposals – Solid Ground II: Echoes
Solid Ground II: Echoes Curated by Tom Macphail*
13 – 30 June 2013
With a Federal election approaching, Solid Ground II: Echoes is an inquiry into the current debates pertaining to asylum seekers and refugees within Australia by bringing together a range of artists and writers, aiming to approach the subject by expressing a variety of viewpoints, observations and lived experiences.
The aim of the exhibition is to focus on the facts of the current issues whilst considering Australia’s immigration history, international context and the political rhetoric and media sensationalism that has marred the issues and demonized ‘boat people’. The ‘White Australian’ policy of earlier decades demonstrates that Australian’s fear of outsiders is nothing new, yet the current polarization of the voting public reveals issues of underlying xenophobia that we have yet to shake off.
At The Vanishing Point gallery, in association with OPEN Marrickville is calling for artists whose artworks/practices are engaged with the above subject and writers who are looking to be published with the show’s accompanying zine. All medium and contemporary visual arts practices are welcome to apply.
Propose up to 5 artworks per artist.
Proposals due 6pm Sunday 2 June.
For a proposal form http://www.atthevanishingpoint.com.au/web_images/2013_ProposalCalls/Solid%20Ground%20II%20Echoes%20Proposal%20FORM_WEB.pdf
For further information http://www.atthevanishingpoint.com.au/index.php?p=9_6
or call (02) 9519 2340 or email info@atthevanishingpoint.com.au
*Solid Ground II: Echoes is supported by funding from Marrickville Council’s Open Marrickville festival & ATVP’s Emerging Curator Mentorship program, supported by The Visual Arts and Craft Strategy and the NSW Government through Arts NSW.

The Fish Bowl - new project space call out
The Fish Bowl – new project space call out
As you may have heard the new Dean (Ross Harley) has given his offices on the ground floor of D-block to the student body as exhibition or project spaces.
These glass walled rooms look out on to the courtyard and are an amazing place to conduct performances, live art production, and exhibit installations.
This new space is called The Fish Bowl. It will be open to any student* who wishes to use it. One room is for a week-long exhibition of work/ experimental project, another is a casual space to trial installation possibilities of your work for a few hours.
All you need to do to gain access to these awesome new rooms is to send a proposal to the Courtyard Collective via the Arc Office at COFA. As long as you aren’t using anything problematic like a raging bonfire or litres of sulphuric acid, we’ll slot you in!
Contact us at cofa@arc.unsw.edu.au

WALLPEOPLE LOGO1 wallpeople_01
Wallpeople is a collaborative art event that happens in 45 cities around the world at the same time. A city 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 a part of a unique experiment 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 art work 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.

4.Stick your work(s) on the wall with the rest of the works. If your inspiration is a particular song, you must indicate the name of the track and the artist.
5.Wallpeople team will have the necessary adhesives but we still ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING YOUR OWN MOUNTING TAPE OR ADHESIVE TAPE if possible, to facilitate the process. You can also BYO art supplies as we encourage all participants to make live art creations.
6.Wallpeople team will mark the start and ending of the event (about 3-4 hours).
7.At the end of the exhibition, 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 information, in case who took your work wants to contact you.

UpRaw: Great Art Unearthed
Gain access to raw, unadulterated talent from the world’s best emerging artists
Be the first to own artwork by emerging artists from around the world at the launch of UpRaw, an online platform
for early career artists. Art lovers and collectors will be able to access unique art pieces without the exorbitant
price-tag through UpRaw’s website dedicated to connecting raw creative talent with art enthusiasts.

Part of Sydney-based art investment company Art Equity, UpRaw is pushing the boundaries of showcasing and
selling art. CEO Raj Nanda marvels that just 10 years ago selling online was in its infancy and online galleries
were rare.

Now it’s a valuable platform for emerging and established artists to expose their work to the global art world. “As
pioneers in the business of selling art online we see UpRaw as a natural development, with the website’s easy to
navigate functionality and shopping cart facilities,” he explains.

“UpRaw is an affordable entry to art collecting. We make a point of offering original artworks that are accessible to
all art enthusiasts, with prices starting at under AU$200 and nothing priced over AU$2,000. We also provide free
shipping within Australia and New Zealand,” he adds.

Ralph Hobbs, Art Director and an artist represented by UpRaw notes being able to showcase and sell high quality
artworks online is an opportunity to broaden artists’ reach and expose their work to a wider audience that “may
be intimidated by the gallery scene or not necessarily have time to go to openings”.

“The reality is that the internet is a global market place and at UpRaw there is a serious understanding of the way
art and the internet work together. It has exposed my art to a far greater audience than I would normally be able
to create,” adds Hobbs.

“UpRaw looks after all the issues associated with selling work, so I can get on and do it. So far as UpRaw is
concerned I can produce the work and watch it sell to people I will probably never know. As an artist, that is a
great feeling.”

“Over the 9 years of building Art Equity, we’ve been exposed to hundreds of talented early career artists. We’ve
kept our eye on them, mentored many of them and are now thrilled to be able to represent them through UpRaw.”

Currently, almost 20 Australian and international artists are represented by UpRaw. Mediums range from
traditional oil paintings, photography, drawings and original prints to stencil art.

Artists have been carefully selected through a number of criteria; Hobbs says they are required to go above and
beyond “decorative work to maintain technical and conceptual substance.” The combined experience of the staff
at Art Equity and UpRaw are just as valuable to buyers.

Emma Crott, Coordinator of UpRaw, says “we are committed to not only providing an online exhibition space but
curating various art initiatives and pop-up shows in Australia and beyond so customers can experience the works
in a physical environment.”
“We are always seeking new and exciting ways to showcase our artists’ work, for example we regularly exhibit at
EMI Music on Flinders Street (Sydney) as part of their Art Project. Collaborations with the music, fashion and food
industries allow us to promote our artists to a broad range of people and create a dialogue with other cultural
entities.”

LOOKING FOR DIRECTORS FOR THE RED RATTLER THEATRE INC!

Do you want to be involved in the community management of The Red Rattler Theatre?

The Red Rattler Theatre is now looking for new directors to join a dedicated and enthusiastic team to run one of Sydney’s newest and most innovative venues.

What skills do I need to be a director?
Directors must be able to attend two meetings each month, and participate in ad hoc projects.

The Red Rattler is looking for a combination of people to make up a board with the following skills and experiences (you don’t need to hold all the skills listed below):
• Experience on a board or governance committee
• Experience in management of an artist-run-initiative or non-profit community organisation
• Organisational and communication skills
• Legal skills
• Experience and interest in fundraising – whether through grants, sponsorship or other funding ideas
• Media, publicity and PR skills
• Website and email-list management skills

What is the Red Rattler Theatre Inc, and what are the Red Rattler’s future plans?
The Red Rattler is the realisation of the collective dream of five local queer woman artists, who wanted to create a legal warehouse-style venue to showcase alternative Sydney arts, performance and grassroots activism. It has been an active artist run initiative for 4 years, running as an indie, not-for-profit, volunteer run, fully licensed warehouse space. It also includes two artist studios. The Red Rattler Theatre Inc has become a creative playground for performers, musicians, artists, designers, new media makers, experimentalists, film-makers, theorists, activists, writers, collective organisers, and local punters.

The Red Rattler has recently moved from a collective partnership governing model to a not-for-profit incorporated arts association. The new board will be involved in the development and planning of the 2013-2014 creative program, the establishment of the Red Rattler as an entity with deductible gift recipient status, and more exciting projects!

IN STUDIO with Mark Rowden


Click on images for website links

Mark Rowden

           1) Who is Mark Rowden?

A printmaker, artist and father. Born in the UK, I moved to Sydney in the late 90’s. I make art works concentrating on relief prints. I believe that being an artist is simple = you just have to make art, no one else will make it for you unless you’re Andy Warhol!

20121208_110542

2) Explain your current body of work?

My Current body of art has two strands, the overlapping connection is that they are all high contrast lino-cut prints. The first is a collection of memories of childhood, a playful grouping of images that have all been hand coloured. The second group is a collection of portraits that are more sensual and suggetive.

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

As everybody says..this is a hard question. I can only narrow it down to three artists: Caspar David Friedrich, Anselm Kiefer and Alfred Sisley.
A very eclectic grouping I know, but I find they all bring a tonality to their works that I like. They produce is a vibe that I connect to, a sensation that provokes me into thought and generally gets me into the head space that allows me to work. Another big inspiration to me is snow. A friend of mine and fellow artist, Tim Smith, once described snow’s effect on the artist’s eye beautifully: “When the snow lands on the ground, it takes all the middle ground away and leaves the core information that is needed for the mind to connect the pieces”, which is exactly right and for me these artists have that tone in some of their works.

Deck chair on the beach - Mark Rowden

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

I’d love to be able to live off my art, have a permanent studio and inspire people with what I create.

20121209_164840

5) What kind of art training have you had?

1 year of study at an art school in the UK and 4 years in Australia (at National Art School). On top of this I’ve done 8 years of fine art editioning for artists including Charles Blackman, John Olsen, Adam Cullen and McLean Edwards to name a few. Editioning is terrific training – you are teaching and learning at the same time. When you edition with a painter the conversations you have teach you so much.

20121208_134806

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

It’s usually a three-step process: make a drawing on the block, carve it and then print it. The main thing with the printmaking process is how many times the image you’re creating can change throughout each stage, unlike a painting where each mark is seen straight away and that is the mark.

20121209_165103

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

It’s a sure fire way to get your business out there. I use it all the time. I use Twitter, WordPress and Facebook, privately and through my ‘sydney galleries and art community’ blog. It connects people and I have tried to use it in away that the people know what they are getting with me, keeping it on subject and keeping focused. It’s like any other medium though – to make it work you have to direct it to the right people, the ones that matter, and you must keep your messages true and on point. But art can still speak for itself, if it’s good people will find out.

20121208_110547

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

The words that come to mind are “You’ve got detention”. I was never a word person and when it came to my English class it was all words! So when I got some home work to make up a story about anything, I wrote one page A4 of a great story, followed by nine pages of drawing to accompany it. My teacher said it was time to step up and write more, draw less, and my response was, “Isn’t a picture worth a thousand words?” Wrong response.

9) What is on the agenda for the next couple of months?

I have a solo show at the Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick opening Feb 7, then I’m part of a group show in Melbourne at Off The Kerb gallery opening March 8. Then my work will be part of ‘Conductor’s Project’, an art initiative at Museum and St James train stations, in June. Then after that a break to refresh and get the ideas flowing again, along with enjoying being a dad.

Long Day - Mark Rowden

http://www.facebook.com/events/200737780064468

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

Do it if it’s the one thing you wake up wanting to do and the last thing you are thinking about as you go to sleep. Don’t feel like you have to work with canvas or hung in an art gallery to be an artist either – you can be an architect, a graphic designer, or even create computer games.
Just put some art in your life, have fun and you’ll get there.

20121209_164808

11) How are you finding the current art market?

Can’t lie, it’s hard out there and people are looking at new markets and new ways to earn a living. It’s not all about the money either but it sure does help you get the right equipment and space to make works. But just make art when and where you can, as long as you are making it, that’s all that matters.

20121209_164903

12) Name four things that you cannot do without in your studio?

My computer, music to listen to, a good coffee from my local and a 4B pencil.

Le Bain - Mark Rowden

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

Apparently I wanted to be a fireman when I was little so I’ll go with that.

Summer Residency – Yarra Sculpture Gallery
After the great success of the 2012 Winter Residency program, the Contemporary Sculptors Association is inviting applications from emerging and established artists for a 6 week Summer Residency at the Yarra Sculpture Gallery.
They are offering the opportunity for artists to experiment and expand their practice, a time to take chances and explore possibilities. They are looking, ideally, for artists who would like to have the opportunity to create installation or large scale sculptural works within the gallery space.
Up to five artists will be selected and allocated one of the gallery spaces in which to work. Artists will have 24 hour non residential access to the space. An Open Studio will be held on the last weekend of the residency, where the artists can present any finished work or discuss work in progress with other artists and the public.
Details of the gallery space can be found on the website – http://www.yarrasculpturegallery.com.au/summer-residency.html
Please rank your preferences for spaces, if you have them, in your application. They will endeavor to accommodate your choices but cannot make any guarantees.
Applicants will need to provide a CV, 5 images of current or relevant work (1MB max each image) and a 250 word proposal for the residency. Successful applicants would be required to join the CSA if not already members.
Applications can be emailed to yarrasculpturegallery@gmail.com or sent via post to:
Summer Residency – Yarra Sculpture Gallery – 117 Vere Street, Abbotsford, VIC 3067

Residency Dates:
14th December 2012 – 5th February 2013
Open Studios Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd February
Application Due Date: 5pm Monday 26th November

Costs and commitments:
Successful applicants who are current CSA members are required to pay $150 to cover rent and bills.
Future members pay $210 Full / $180 concession – includes annual membership to the CSA.
A $100 bond is required from all participating artists. This will be returned at the end of the residency, providing that the space is returned to previous working order.
They don’t police commitment or working hours and understand that everyone has different working methods, but their expectations are that you would be using the space for a minimum of 15 hours per week and will be available for the open studios.
