Deadline: April 30, 2018. We invite you to submit your work to Art League Rhode Island’s Second Annual CSF Symposium Exhibition to be held at the Atrium Gallery at One Capitol Hill in Providence starting on June 11, 2018 through July 13, 2018. The exhibit will focus on the creative interpretation of specific neuro-metabolic diseases and illustrate in visual form the transformative manifestations of these disorders. Artists who are interested in, or who want to learn more about, the intersection of art, science and medicine are encouraged to submit to this open call. The original concept and vision was created by a Rhode Island neurosurgeon, Dr. Petra Klinge. Her vision for the exhibition is to capture through artistic renderings the “essence” of a clinical disorder, specifically those associated with cerebrospinal fluid and connective tissue disorders. Dr. Klinge reflects upon these art works as part of her annual medical symposium held at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and utilizes them to assist physicians and scientists to both gain a better understanding of the patient experience and create empathy for the patient’s condition. To research and learn more about these disorders, you may want to visit the CSF Foundation website http://csfinfo.org/ and http://www.csffoundation.org/ (two different organizations) and for information on connective tissue disorders, visit the Ehlers-Danlos Society at https://www.ehlers-danlos.com/ Please see https://www.artleaguerhodeisland.org for further details.

(New) Call to Artists, submit work for Bill of Rights Project - VT
Deadline: June 8, 2018. Submit your work to The Bill of Rights Project. Open to all medium and persuasions. The Bill of Rights is sometimes considered the Constitution by many of us. It was created in response to the Constitution, “to prevent misconstruction and abuse of it’s powers”. According to the ACLU’s webpage, “The Constitution was remarkable, but deeply flawed. For one thing, it did not include a specific declaration—or bill—of individual rights. It specified what the government could do but did not say what it could not do. For another, it did not apply to everyone. The ‘consent of the governed’ meant propertied white men only.” In images and/or words, please react to OUR Bill of Rights. You can respond to a particular amendment or to the bill as a whole, or you can pose a question. Here are a few sites to get you started; https://www.aclu.org/other/bill-rights-brief-history; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Bill_of_Rights; http://www.billofrightsinstitute.org/founding-documents/bill-of-rights/ (This one has some teaching suggestions.) Your piece must be 2 dimensional and no larger than 8” square. With your individual work, a larger work will be created. Your piece will not be returned to you. Students are encouraged to participate. The first exhibition of the completed piece will be in Bellows Falls VT, June 15 as part of The Arts of Resistance. Jeanette Staley is a VT artist working in collage and mixed media. She is a current MFA candidate at VT College of Fine Art. You can see her work by visiting www.flyingcanvasstudio.com.

Pride and Prejudice: Gender Realities in the 21st Century – IL
Deadline: May 13, 2018. A Juried Exhibition at ARC Gallery, Chicago. June 20, 2018 -July 14, 2018. Click below for Prospectus and application form, http://www.arcgallery.org/pride-and-prejudice-gender-realities-in-the-21st-century/ GENDER—perhaps the most essential aspect of one’s person— has transcended the binary ideas of the past, evolving into complex conceptions about identity and sexuality. While contemporary gender expression has created space for empowerment and freedoms for many, it remains confusing for some, wrong-headed for others, and a topic that is continually fascinating to the media. Many welcome this attention and the progress it bodes; but it has also resulted in pain, harassment, and discrimination for others. Work for this exhibition will be juried by Oli Rodriguez, an interdisciplinary artist who teaches photography at the School of the Art Institute, and whose work can be seen at www.olirodriguez.com. Submissions may include two or three-dimensional pieces as well as video, spoken word, or performance pieces.
