Calling all Artists!

Urban Legends - The Streets of Manhattan
Posted in: Free Opportunities
Source: ArtDeadline.Com

International Deadline: September 13, 2009 - Culture Inside announces that it's newest competition and exhibition is open. Our October show will be based on artists interpreting the theme 'Urban Legends'.

The images, modern myths and stories, viral morality and horror tales that have come to own the meaning of the term, are part of the defining experience of modern life. Stories of accident and retribution, claims of the experience being close to the source and true ,” this really happened to a friend of a friend of mine” is something we have all shared in conversation or email. Films of fear and horror have capitalized on some of the stories because of how real and close they seem to us.

We take a position that an artist’s perception can be both inside and outside the experience. Works submitted for the exhibition are free to define the term and interpret it in a manner that can vary from playful, to literal, apocryphal, symbolic or literal. Many of these stories come from a delicious decadence that owes more to 19th century masters like Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker than to rationalist or realist authors or philosophers of our own day. In any case artists are free to let their imaginations run wild and take the theme wherever it can go.

Our plan is that part of the winning pieces will be placed on signs and displayed publicly on the streets of Manhattan New York starting October. The other pieces will be displayed in Frank Shifreen's studio and artist gallery in Manhattan for the length of the show.

The two-dimensional pieces can be in any artistic media but should be printed on vinyl or painted on canvas. We also plan to film and document each winning piece so that it will have a life on the web as well as the exhibit.

The Noyes Museum of Art Gala Event


The Noyes Museum of Art is hosting its Annual Gala on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 6 pm. This year's South-American themed event, Noche De Arte, will be an evening filled with art, culture and cuisine. Guests will enjoy live music, Latin-inspired cuisine and signature cocktails amid the museum's galleries and tranquil outdoor backdrop.

Sponsored by the Press of Atlantic City and The Herbert and Lois Rothenburg Charitable Foundation, The Noyes Museum of Art gala will feature live painter, potter and sculptor demonstrations, a cigar garden, piñata style silent auction, Tiffany & Co. raffle, and artist Frank Hyder.

This year's featured gala artist, Frank Hyder, is an internationally recognized artist with more than 75 solo shows and hundreds of group exhibits. He is recognized as the first North American to show his work in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Venezuela. His works involve an intense personal commitment to process and image making. With work displayed throughout the United States and Latin America, Hyder's exhibit, Poems of a Threatened Eden prompts wonder and the need to protect the endangered environment.

Each pearl is numbered with each recipient receiving a ticket with the corresponding number. All purchased pearls will be strung on a Tiffany Blue® thread, creating a beautiful necklace symbolic of generosity. The pearls are then deposited into a transparent Tiffany box. Ten pearls will be drawn from the box, with seven winners receiving Tiffany Design Director John Loring's book, Tiffany Pearls, and three lucky people winning one of the displayed grand prizes. One hundred percent of all raffle donation will benefit The Noyes Museum of Art.
