COVER LOVER REMIX

OPEN TO: Hudson Valley and Tri-state area, including New York City

JURY: Dick Burroughs, NYC-based Writer/Curator & Charlotte Mouquin, Executive Dir., Pelham Art Center

ABOUT COVER LOVER REMIX:

Cover Lover Remix (CLR) is a juried multi-artist exhibition of “remixed” album covers. CLR began in 2011 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, as the “vinyl-revival” was picking up steam with renewed interest in vinyl records as handheld pieces of multimedia artwork comprising a layered sensory experience. The CLR exhibition explores the transition of visual artists from consumers of album art to creators of reimagined album covers. All exhibiting pieces measure 24” x 24,” which maintains the square shape of an album cover, while doubling the cover size for increased visual impact. Participating artists will reinterpret iconic album covers while maintaining a conceptual thread to the original album artwork, which will be visible via QR code.

The vast range of source material crosses musical genres with album artwork often creating an emotional bond with the public. The beauty, drama, creativity, and anticipation lies in how the artist navigates that bond while owning the vision of their remix. As stated by curator Dick Burroughs, “Album art isn’t normally in art-specific environments such as a gallery, and the public’s interaction with the familiar, yet different creates a vibrant energy.”

In addition to the artists the jury selects for the exhibition, the exhibition will feature a select group of guest artists curated by Dick Burroughs. Selected artists are chosen for their style, energy, and vibrancy to create exceptional expressions of the Cover Lover Remix curatorial theme. The select artists include: Pablo Power, Ritchie Sway Iwanski, Mike Perry, Schoolly D, Sean Qualls, Kristen McCilver, Adam Krueger, Misha Tyutyunik, Jim Twice, Extra Polo, Charlotte Mouquin, Savior El Mundo, AJ Lavilla, and Voodo Fé.

Pelham Art Center presents Cover Lover Remix July 21st-August 27th.

OPEN CALL | Sugar, Sweat & Stone: Celebrating the Art of Work

Hasting Village Arts Commission invites artists to participate in the juried exhibition: Sugar, Sweat & Stone: Celebrating the Art of Work that will be on display at Hastings Village Hall Gallery August 27 through October 28, 2022.

For most of the 19th and 20th centuries, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York was a thriving industrial community, making the products that made America, from quarrying white marble and refining sugar to manufacturing paving stones, wire, cable, and more. This Fall, Hastings-on-Hudson Arts Commission and Hastings Historical Society celebrate the art of work in the 21st century. Work is typically not only necessary to earn a living, it can be a principal source of our personal identities. It can be a source of great satisfaction and even greater despair. We want to know what you think artistically, literally, and metaphorically. Share with us your works of art that celebrate the art of work.

Call to Artists | Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut

LIBERATION | Call for Entries! | CULTURAL ALLIANCE OF WESTERN CONNECTICUT

This outdoor exhibit is open to artists located in Western CT and Westchester and Putnam Counties in NY. Deadline for entries is June 3rd. The exhibit will be on view and part of the Juneteenth event on June 19th 12:00 noon to 5:00 PM at Western Connecticut State University, Midtown Campus in Danbury, CT. Submission info is available here.

The Cultural Alliance of Western CT partnered with the Greater Danbury NAACP, WCSU Racial Justice Coalition and More, to proudly present Danbury Juneteenth — National Independence Day — Celebration 2022 –“Honoring our Heritage: Forging the Future.”

Through “Liberation“, we invite artists and artisans to explore feelings of freedom and a spirit of celebration. Honoring our history, its struggles and triumphs, while expressing strength, perseverance, and hope for the future. Visual expressions are uplifting and include multicultural representation.

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the abolition of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. This was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863.

Fast-forward to 2021, in a great example of bipartisanship the United States Senate voted unanimously on a resolution to make Juneteenth an American federal holiday. The Senate resolution officially establishes June 19th as “Juneteenth National Independence Day.” The day after the Senate passed the resolution, the United States House of Representatives also approved the resolution and President Biden signed the bill into law.

To recognize and celebrate the rich history of this holiday and to highlight the extraordinary contributions made by African Americans to the community, the Danbury Juneteenth Coalition is planning a fun-filled day for the entire family – both young and old — with a curated roster of exciting activities that will take place throughout the day.
