DESCRIPTION:

O’Hanlon Center for the Arts invites you to submit work for our 16th Annual Wabi-Sabi Exhibition.

“…celebrating the simple, the rustic, the unassuming; the dignity of things imperfect, uncontrolled and incomplete; the transient beauty of the natural world…”

When seeking to understand Wabi-Sabi, it is helpful to contemplate the idea that beauty is inherent in a simple object, which in turn evokes a quiet, thoughtful mood and atmosphere. The emphasis of this exhibit will be not on the final perfected form of the work, but on how well pieces reflect a sense and feeling of this elusive concept. In particular, focus will be on the imaginative use of natural materials that may include found objects.

Visit the Wabi-Sabi page of our website for inspiration & resources: ohanloncenter.org/wabi-sabi/

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.

O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.

DESCRIPTION:

Explore the communicative power of line in art.

Ann O’Hanlon speaks of the five elements of composition in her book “seeing/perception”:
   Line, Area, Space, Colorandthe Human Psyche.

All works contain, at some level, all five.  For this show the focus is on the LINE: 
    straight – curved, measured – random, long – short, heavy – light

How do you use the line in your art to communicate?  Submit works that have an emphasis on LINE!
Some well known artists who masterfully used the line: Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, Wassily Kandinsky.

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.

About the Juror: Katy Kuhn

I am a gestural abstract artist, taking my cue from nature.  My work is at once personal and universal, like looking out a window and seeing life through my own point of view, but knowing others will have their own unique response. I am particularly influenced by the colors and energy of nature and the ever-changing environment. Line, color, shape, and movement all invoke feelings, daydreams, longings, and collective memories. In working abstractly the work is never fixed, but dynamic—one can see infinite relationships. 

“My paintings are organic, yet honed: Spontaneity and energy are just as important as deliberation, composition and application of materials. In working large, I realize the reach of my own physicality and fully immerse myself into each work of art. Look closely, and step back too. It is paint after all; but the fact that its application onto a single surface can reach the deepest part of our psyches is nothing short of a miracle and I long to be part of that transcendent experience.” katykuhn.com

DESCRIPTION:

One Color: Infinite Possibilities.

How expressive can you be utilizing a single base hue but employing as many of its shades, tones and tints as you require? Monochromatic artworks can be based on any single color, not just black & white. For example, in the Blue spectrum we have Azure, Cobalt, Cerulean, Ultramarine, etc. Reds might include Garnet, Crimson, Rose…the possibilities for explorations within each hue are endless.

For inspiration, consider a few well known artists who explored the possibilities of working in monochrome: Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko and Gerhard Richter.  

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.

We invite artists to submit works that feature some aspect of DUALITY as a primary theme or focus. Dualities are an instance of opposition, contrast or other relationships between two concepts.

Dualities can be experienced everywhere: light–dark, stillness–movement, plus–minus, hot–cold, rough–smooth. They can also be seen in mirrored reflections, or pairings of mates, couples or twins.

Will you focus on the contrast between the two aspects, or reveal some unifying connection between the duo?

Members’ Show 2019 (Call for Entries)


Annual Members’ Show 2019
“Salon des Refusés”
(Call for Entries)

O’Hanlon & Loft Galleries – January 2019

Exhibition Dates:              Jan 3 – 24, 2019

Entry Dates (in-person):    Dec 29 & 30, 2018 (see below)

Entry Fee: $30 Current OHCA members only, for up to two pieces.

Download a printable PDF of this notice.

 

PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION NOTES BELOW CAREFULLY… Many details will be different this year!

ELIGIBILITY:

Open to all current members of O’Hanlon Center for the Arts.

DESCRIPTION:

Our Members’ Show this year will have a bit of a twist… we’re calling it a“Salon des Refusés”…which essentially means pieces that have been ‘refused’ from other exhibits! This is an opportunity to show your favorite piece which just didn’t catch the eye of some particular juror but you feel should be seen. (And if you have something that you’ve created for this show, which has not been previously submitted… that’s OK, too.)
    (More info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salon_des_Refusés)

EXHIBIT CURATION: 

This show will be curated and installed by Members of the O’Hanlon Exhibition Committee. While this is not a ‘juried show’… the team does want to create the strongest show possible. You can submit One or Two pieces of artwork. If you feel strongly about a piece that you want to make sure is shown… you should submit just one piece.

We’ll also be using our newly re-opened “Loft Gallery” to showcase works for this show (The upper level of the building with studios). While attempts will be made to install one piece from each member in the main O’Hanlon Gallery, this may not be possible, depending on the number of members who enter. Some members may have both submitted pieces shown if it makes sense to the overall flow of the show. The show will likely be installed ‘salon style’ to ensure that everyone’s work can be displayed!

Please enter your best small-to-midsized pieces. (Note size limitations below!)

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.
O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.

 

MEDIA: Any Media.

  • Small or mid-sized artworks. No diptychs/triptychs for this exhibit, please.
    • Wall-hung pieces: Maximum Width: 24”;  Maximum Height: 30”
    • Sculpture/Pedestal display: Maximum base size 20” x 20”
  • Open to all OHCA Members, age 16 and over. Membership must be current.
  • Submission limit: 2 works per artist.
  • Please do not submit works previously displayed in the O’Hanlon Gallery.

 

ART PREPARATION

About the Juror: Julie Zener – Julie Zener Gallery

Julie Zener has established herself in the art industry as a gallery owner, art dealer, art curator, and artist manager. She represents a broad range of national and international artists who varied in style from oils, photography, sculpture, and mixed media works.

In 1997, she launched her career as an art dealer living in San Francisco. She then lived and worked in Santa Barbara and Spain, and ultimately landed in Mill Valley in 2005 working as a private dealer and artist manager. She created gallery relationships, performed public relations, licensed imagery, and sold artwork directly to many prominent corporations and private individuals for their collections.

Julie participated in numerous art fairs including Affordable Art Fair/NY, Red Dot/Miami, Art Market/SF, Art Aspen, and SCOPE in Miami/Art Basel. She has curated successive art exhibitions and added to her repertoire as art curator for Red Bull, in which she researched and curated 20 artists from each major city to exhibit at highly publicized and attended national art events. Her three year involvement in the tour exposed her to curate exhibitions comprised of many urban influenced and contemporary street artists from popular cities around the nation.  

In 2014, Julie opened Zener Schon Contemporary Art (ZSCA) in Mill Valley, CA with Tara Schon. The gallery sold works by prominent artists and consecutively curated the murals and large scale sculptures at Bottlerock music festival in Napa, CA.

About the Juror: Leslie Allen

Leslie Allen is an abstract painter, art teacher and cellist in Sausalito.  She is represented by Seager/Gray Gallery in Mill Valley, and her prints are published by Art Brokers Inc in San Rafael.  Since moving to her studio in the Industrial Center Building 30 years ago, Allen’s work has evolved from tightly-rendered still life and landscapes in watercolor, to fiercely expressive abstract and figurative paintings in oil and mixed media. 

In recent years she studied aquatints at Crown Point Press, and her later paintings and collages reflect her love of printmaking techniques.  Allen has exhibited in many one-person and group shows, and her paintings are widely collected. Allen has served on a handful of art councils, boards and commissions, and she is a founding member of the vibrant ICB Artists Association.  Her experience as an art juror includes two international art exhibits in recent years, and many local shows since the early ‘90s.  Leslie Allen’s passion for color in art, music and life is undisputed, and her enthusiasm for painting is contagious.
