Happy Friday, happy weekend ahead! Hello everyone. Shadowbox is heading across the pond to the South London Gallery!


Founded in 1891, the South London Gallery is a public-funded gallery of contemporary art in Camberwell, London. Until 1992, it was known as the South London Art Gallery, but now the acronym SLG is often used.

Editor’s Desk March 2015

March 2, 2015

Number 3/ Volume 3

March has arrived. Not too much going on this month, but I’m hoping to change that. First there is Artexpo New York and Solo. I know it’s late to bring it up, but I did have that posted with the Wix site. I hope you guys can a least see these exhibitions and that way next year, you can participate in getting your work there. April 23 – 26, 2015.

Chinese artist, activist, and many other hats that he wears, Ai Weiwei is this month’s Spotlight Artist. I’m sure some of you recognize this name or heard of this artist, I even had an exhibition of his posted in At the Museum last year, if I can recall for PAMM the Perez Art Museum Miami.

Speaking of At the Museum, lets hop across the pond to the South London Museum and see what they’re up to. I’m sure they have lots of exciting activities galore waiting in store. Expect to see more workshops, and art stuff to be shared, like the Coastal Maine Art Workshop, My Art Trip and others.

I’ve stated this since January that Shadowbox is adding literature and poetry, which is another form of art, but through words. So be on the lookout for writers conferences. I’m sure some of you have heard about the AWP (Association of Writers & Writing Programs) Conference & Bookfair held in Minneapolis from April 8 – 11, 2015. If you are a member of AWP, not only can you purchase a registration, but you can also a get membership bundle and some great benefits as well. I will have this posted on the first Wednesday of this month so please keep a look out!

Finally, if you noticed, I’ve played with the Zuki theme for the past few weeks. I’m still trying to get the feel of it. It’s exhausting and frustrating, but the more I work with it, the more easier it gets. So don’t be alarmed if you see things moved around, I’m just putting the finishing touches. I will also get the pages updated. One page has been demolished and I’m hoping to add a bit more in the coming months.

Let the month of March begin!

Hello, hello! The Ok, I’m going to be honest with you. Yesterday I couldn’t figure out what to post on today’s newsletter. This is the truth, honest! All was not lost because I found this competition and it’s a good thing I did, because the deadline is in 7 days! Read on!


Association of Illustrators (AOI), in partnership with London Transport Museum, has announced that submissions are now and still welcomed for the Prize For Illustration 2015. This year’s theme is “London Places and Spaces.”

The aim is to attract artwork for display that is colorful, inspiring, and celebrates a vibrant, multi-layered city that is London.

All artworks should be in portrait format. London Transport Museum would prefer that artworks conform to actual or in proportion standard poster sized:

Double Royal – 635 x 1016 mm (25 x 40 inches) or Double Crown – 505 x 760 mm (20 x 30 inches). For this exhibition the sizes are not prescriptive.

You’ll be happy to know, that there is no entry fee!

The competition is open to illustrators and students of illustration from all over the world, regardless whether if you are a member of Association of Illustrations (AOI) or not.


  • First Prize: £2000 (approx. $3,300 USD) & display of image on a London Transport Museum poster.
  • Second Prize: £1000 (approx. $1,650 USD)
  • Third Prize: £750 (approx. $1,200 USD)

It is possible that your work could be featured on merchandise sold in the London Transport Museum’s shop.

The top 100 entries selected by a panel of judges will be displayed in an exhibition at the London Transport Museum that will open from May and will run until August 2015. The winners will be announced at a private award ceremony in early May 2015.

The deadline for entries for this competition is September 28, 2014.  Yes….like I said I just found this competition. Bear with me ok?

If any of you are interested in entering, just click here. I spread the message, now the ball is in your court!

Happy weekend! Be blessed folks!
