Wednesday Scene: Put Your Art on Display @ Spectrum Indian Wells Art Show

Wednesday Scene: Put Your Art on Display @ Spectrum Indian Wells Art Show

Feb. 22 / 17

Good Morning everybody! The Spectrum Indian Well Art Show is approaching and for those who want to display their work at this show, well you can. Here is a preview….


cred: spectrum indian wells art show

EXHIBIT AT SPECTRUM INDIAN WELLS

GALLERY-STYLE EXHIBITION SPACE

Spectrum Indian Wells, held in California’s Coachella Valley from March 16 – 19, 2017, is a juried show with an Exhibitor Committee consisting of four individuals with outstanding reputations in publishing and artist development. Strict hanging guidelines, aesthetics, and attention to detail will be enforced, providing a streamlined, crisp, and clean venue for gallery owners, designers, architects, and collectors to enjoy.

Spectrum Indian Wells—it’s the place to be in March. Here are the top reasons why you should exhibit at this upscale contemporary art show:

  • We’re bringing the excitement of our Spectrum art show to the Coachella Valley—all the things you’ve come to know and love about Spectrum, now in Indian Wells.
  • A state-of-the-art exhibition space awaits you, replete with a sleek design, gallery-style layout, and Sculpture Garden.
  • March is high season in the California desert and the population soars! Whether among the 400 thousand tennis fans in town for the famous BNP Paribas Open, west-coast snowbirds soaking up the sun, or residents returning from holiday travels, the people who flock to Indian Wells each spring are craving an exciting, inspiring event to put on their calendars.
  • UBS Financial Services, the show’s presenting sponsor, will be bringing their high-net-worth clients, with whom you’ll be able to connect and make deals during VIP parties and throughout the show.
  • Our venue, the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort, is simply gorgeous—plus it’s the headquarter hotel for the BNP Open, so hundreds of affluent tennis fans looking for after-tournament events will literally be steps away from the show.
  • You’ll be joining the ranks of prestigious exhibitors from the region, the country, and the world. Make your mark in the esteemed company of Spectrum artists by showcasing your work at this extraordinary show.

To see about booth packages, prospectus, and other information, go to spectrum-indianwells.com/exhibit.

Weekend Scene: Art San Diego 2016 Updates

Weekend Scene: Art San Diego 2016 Updates

October 8 / 16

Happy Saturday yea! I live for the weekends don’t you? Lots to cover today, so let’s begin with Art San Diego 2016…..


cred: art san diego

This is the first of four press releases starting June 2.

 

Art San Diego Contemporary Art Show Announces 2016

LaunchPad Artist

-LaunchPad program highlights young, emerging and unrepresented artists-

 

SAN DIEGO (June 2, 2016)Art San Diego, the four-day contemporary art show running from Thursday, November 3 to Sunday, November 6 at the Balboa Park Activity Center, has announced the 2016 LaunchPad artist—Stefani Byrd. Byrd, whose practice includes video, new media, and interactive technologies, is most noted for her interactive temporary public art installations, which are hybrids of video and performance art that both disorient and re-orient the viewer.

 

“We are thrilled to showcase Stefani’s incredible talent at this year’s Art San Diego,” said Ann Berchtold, show founder and director. “The LaunchPad Program is all about providing an opportunity to a young, unrepresented artist to present a site-specific exhibition within the show, and we can’t wait to see what Stefani has planned—we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.”

 

Byrd’s most recent project, The Razor’s Edge, is a multi-channel video installation shown on individual HD monitors. In each video, performers exhale slowly against an unseen piece of glass, fogging and obscuring their faces in fleeting moments between breaths. As the warm breath touches the glass, the invisible barrier between performer and camera is revealed, dividing the space into two sides. An exploration in impermanence and mediation, the work captures the breath, making it visible just long enough to be confronted by both performer and viewer.

 

Byrd has received grants and support from groups such as Creative Capital of New York, Flux Projects, the San Diego Art Institute, the San Diego Art Fair, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, and Idea Capital. Her work has been featured in such publications and places as the Public Art Review, the Huffington Post, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Hunter Museum of American Art, and ART PAPERS Magazine. Her work is held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the Columbus Museum of American Art, and is also archived as a part of the Public Art Database project.

 

The programs at Art San Diego this year will all be informed by the common theme of [THRESHOLD]— Standing at the precipice of what’s yet to come; perched on the brink of something extraordinary, expansive, and ever evolving. This theme will inform several of the special programs, including the LaunchPad Program, Art Labs, and the Spotlight Artist Program.

 

Founded in 2009 as the first and only contemporary art show in San Diego, Art San Diego is now an annual showcase, featuring not only San Diego’s most talented artists, but also leading artists and galleries from around the globe. The show has enriched the city each year with compelling site- and theme-specific art projects; art talks and panel discussions; a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video, and new media works; and a curated selection of emerging and spotlight artists. More than 60 galleries from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Asia will showcase paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, videos, and cutting-edge multimedia artworks during Art San Diego 2016.

 

One-day tickets for Art San Diego are priced at $20 online/$25 at the door for general admission. For opening night attendance, tickets are priced at $75 online/$85 at the door. Proceeds from the opening night ticket sales go directly to the Museum of Contemporary Art. For more information on Art San Diego, please visit www.art-sandiego.com.

(cred: Vermont Jazz Center) 

 

Vermont Jazz Center Workshop

41st Annual Summer Jazz Workshops – 2016
August 7th -13th

Our Putney campus offers comfortable accommodations and delicious food. Facilities include ample classrooms, grand pianos and an inviting performance space. Recreational options include hiking, cycling, swimming and tennis.

Each year, the VJC hosts about 40 instrumental and 20 vocal participants from around the world for a challenging, invigorating weeklong summer workshop. The program is set up so that participants can focus intensively on the music: learning opportunities include classes in theory, composition and arranging, vocal studies, ensembles, listening, master-classes and jam sessions.

The VJC summer workshop provides participants the opportunity to study in small groups with world-class faculty. Students and faculty live, study, and eat on the same campus, so there is plenty of time for interaction and personal attention. A warmth pervades the experience for all, and there is a strong feeling of community.

The atmosphere is exciting and the quality of instruction is unparalleled. Former faculty members include Sheila Jordan, Jimmie Heath, John Abercrombie, Lee Konitz, Jimmie Cobb and many other jazz masters.

General Information 

The Vermont Jazz Center has established a proven program of jazz education which emphasizes ensemble coaching as well as individual instruction. Our faculty-student ratio is kept very small to maximize opportunities for personal growth.

Overall enrollment is limited to 60 students. Students of this program are usually at an intermediate to advanced level. Many are working musicians who want some time and guidance to focus on their craft. Ages range from mature high school students to mature adults.

Workshop Students

Summer program participants have come from throughout the continental U.S., as well as Germany, France, Austria, Norway, Switzerland, and the Philippines.

Enrollees include talented high school and college students considering a career in music, as well as working professionals of all ages wishing to refine instrumental and improvisational skills. Several have returned season after season.

Daytime Activities

  • Classes in Theory/Improvisation, Style Analysis, Composition
  • Instrumental Master Classes and Individual Instruction
  • Jazz listening hour: Faculty present recorded compositions – all faculty and students come together to listen to and discuss the music.
  • Faculty-Coached Small Ensembles

Evening Activities

Jam Sessions

Sunday through Wednesday evenings feature a short faculty performance followed by Instrumental and Vocal jam sessions. These jams give students and faculty the opportunity to play together in an informal setting.
