Here is more info on the Landscape show and the Black and White show. I have posted opportunities from this gallery before but check out their website. I know it is frustrating to be paying to submit your work but this cash really helps these galleries. So, instead of purchasing that new video game or new pair of shoes or splurging on something else, make an investment in your work….I know it is easier said then done, but give it a try!

#MoMA100Days

 luna-100day-pledge3luna-100day-pledge2luna-100day-pledge1

As you all know I am constantly on The Great Discontent reading about artist and such. Well, they are updating an interview they had with Elle Luna. She is an amazing artist based out of San Francisco, whom dropped everything bought a white walled studio and is painting full time! She is involved in several projects and one is coming up that we all can participate in. She is working with the Museum of Modern Art to encourage artists to do work for 100 days. The artist gets to choose their subject and medium they just need to commit to repeating their work for 100 days. (For example Elle did 100 days of self portraits.) The goal is to get the artist to show up for the work and do the work and over time their skills will be enhanced. You can participate by documenting your work on social media using the #MoMA100Days and creating your own unique # that has to do with your work and that can be found in one place.

You can download the above images here (blue, green, red) to post them to your social media to tell others and to get started!

Here is the full article with all the details.

This is a great project for those of us that have graduated (may encourage some much needed motivation) and those of us still on campus who need a little nudge (you know who you are).

So check out the interview this will begin April 6, 2015. I hope that you all join I look forward to seeing some great work!

Extra Lives Exhibit

extra_lives_4

You all have probably been wondering what is up in the gallery. Well, Knut has put together a collection of game designers/artists that focus on creating games that teach. Artists featured include Markus Hammerstedt, Elizabeth Keegan and Julia Detar. The works include how to make a game by using a video game along with other education topics such as the circle of life. So, why is this an art exhibition? Knut feels that there is art in gaming; the interaction with the audience and what from that interaction can be taken beyond the game. When asked why he is featuring this art form in the gallery, he stated because it had not been done before. I highly encourage you all take a look and put some thought into the art of our surroundings and experiences.  Look out for the brownbag that will be featuring one of the artists.

 

Press Release: Extra Lives is a group art show of four various game designers/Artists who deal with education. The show can be viewed or played at the Gallery in the Fine Art Building. Elizabeth Keegan, John Clochesy, Julia Detar and Markus Hammarstedt are the artists/game designer that is showing.  There are three educational video games you can play with. ESmart, Play and Eat. Also, there is a video projection of two game animations that was created by Markus Hammarstedt.  There will be a Brown bag lecture coming up by Markus Hammarstedt. Who will be talking about his experience being the lead animator for Castle Wolfenstein and other Triple A games.
