Wednz Scene: Chelsea International Fine Art Competition

Wednz Scene: Chelsea International Fine Art Competition

January 31 / 18

Good morning all…last day for this month. Can you believe it? Anyhow, I have something of interest courtesy of Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. They are having their 33rd Art Competition this year. Here are the details from a press release that was sent to me…

 

33rd Chelsea International Fine Art Competition—Opens on February 6, 2018
Artists from across the globe are invited to enter the 33rd Annual Chelsea International Fine Art
Competition. With a fierce dedication to promoting the arts and discovering and exposing new talent, the
CIFAC continues its tradition of honoring selected artists and awarding prizes aimed at giving artists
invaluable exposure to promote career growth and boost recognition.

“The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition is one of the most established prominent
international competition today. Juried by a panel of experts in the contemporary art
world, the competition provides artists working in all media an opportunity to be seen and
to possibly be showcased in the most relevant art market in the world. Come join our
family of artists and share your work with art experts who recognize real talent when they
see it!”
-Angela Di Bello, Executive Director, Agora Gallery

This year’s competition awards are valued at over $70,000 and are designed specifically to support our
larger mission: to promote the spread of extraordinary and innovative art in our modern world and to
ensure the future productivity and enhance the careers of selected artists. Aside from cash prizes, other
awards include participation in the collective exhibition, magazine profiles, valuable PR opportunities and
an honorable mention and a complimentary entry to the 34th Chelsea International Fine Art Competition
(Feb. 2019). A portion of the gallery’s proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to the Children’s Heart
Foundation.

“Before entering the gallery, I experienced an OMG! moment, when I saw that one of my works was
selected for the outdoor display poster. Once inside, my feelings were a little vague at first. Even standing
there, in the space, I was still trying to absorb the fact that my artwork was being exhibited in a New York
gallery. Then I felt honored, humbled, and delighted, all at the same time. I was very impressed with the
thoughtfulness in which the work was displayed. The whole show looked great!.”
-Rosanne Wolfe, United States, 2017 Selected Artist

The 2018 Chelsea International Fine Art Competition will be accepting entries February 6th –
March 12th, 2018. Results are announced on April 23rd, 2018, with the competition exhibition
scheduled for August 14–25, 2018.

Interested? Ready to seize the opportunity and take your career to the next level? Visit

Shadow Spotlight: The Untitled Space

Shadow Spotlight: The Untitled Space

January 16 / 18

Hello everyone! Hope everybody enjoyed their three-day weekend in the U.S. This week will be plenty busy, plenty busy. When I do a Shadow Spotlight post, it takes time and research to put together a great piece. It can be a person, group, or a place. So this month’s spotlight focuses on a place. There are many go places to go for great art. The Untitled Space in New York City is one. If this place seems familiar, I’ve posted last week about an exhibition that is taking place this week. What is Untitled Space? I’ll let them tell you…

 

Photo was taken by Dustin Wayne Harris.

The Untitled Space art gallery, located in Tribeca, New York, was founded by artist Indira Cesarine in 2014. The gallery specializes in emerging and established contemporary artists exploring conceptual framework and boundary-pushing ideology through mediums of painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and performance art. The Untitled Space is committing to exploring new ideas vis-à-vis traditional and new mediums and highlights a program of “Women in Art,” as well as special events aligned with our creative vision.

Recent exhibitions include “SHE INSPIRES” a group show honoring inspirational women curated by Indira Cesarine, “UPRISE/ ANGRY WOMEN” a group show of 80 female artists benefitting the ERA Coalition, “LIFEFORCE” a group show of 23 female artists curated by Kelsey and Remy Bennett, and “In The Raw: The Female Gaze On The Nude”. Special events include “Project Literacy” and “SciConvo” a TEDX talk on Science and Culture.

Here are two videos from two exhibitions from last year.

 

Exhibition Title: SHE INSPIRES / Exhibition Dates: MAY 2 – 20, 2017

 

Exhibition Title: SECRET GARDEN // The Female Gaze on Erotica / Exhibition Dates: June 27– July 30, 2017

The Untitled Space is part of the TRIBECA ART DISTRICT.

I love it when you go to a gallery that can explore all aspects of life, especially with what’s going on now. Speaking of that the next exhibition will be held today, ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE, January 16, which is open reception. Preview, by invitation 4pm till 6pm.

This January, The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE group exhibition, curated by gallery director and artist Indira Cesarine, featuring the work of more than 80 contemporary artists responding to the political climate in America since the election of President Donald Trump. Opening January 16th, and on view through February 4th, ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE marks the one year anniversary of the inauguration of one of the most controversial presidents in American history. In a follow up to the gallery’s critically acclaimed group show “UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN,” which opened during the week of the 2017 presidential inauguration, exhibition ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE features artwork across all mediums addressing the issues our society has been confronted with since the election such as immigration rights, health care, reproductive rights, climate change, transgender rights, white supremacy, gender equality, gun control, sexual harassment, as well as countless other issues which have given rise to mass protest throughout the United States and abroad over the past year. ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE celebrates art as activism, giving voices to contemporary artists from all backgrounds, ages and genders. Through works motivated by the controversial policies and practices of our current president, the exhibition sheds light on the challenging issues of contemporary culture in the face of the presidential political agenda.
