————————————————————————————-

Call #1  “Creating in Place” Phone Videos
Here is a sweet little sample, created by artist, Media Arts prof, and LVAC director, Angela Meron!
Create short phone videos under 5 minutes long that show your process while hunkered down in  isolation at home. Help the community see artists living and working “in place.”
Using time-lapse is an option. 1 hour = 5 minutes  Details for both calls here

CALL #2 “Six Degrees of Isolation”
(Juried Show)

Your completed work should reflect an artist’s interpretation of isolation and/or the pandemic and communicate a visual understanding of your experience over the last few weeks.

Work must have been completed after 3/1/20 and may be any media.  Details for both calls are here.

Like everything else during this pandemic, deadlines are flexible.  We will continue to receive entries as long as the gallery is shut down, and we will upload it as soon as we receive approval from our curator.

Need help with resolution or resizing photos?

From Jane Fritz:  I found a couple of resources for people who may not have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements..

First, to convert resolution (dpi) to 300: http://convert.town/image-dpi

Second, to resize pixels on the long side of the image to 1200: http://picresize.com  There, use “custom” in the drop-down menu and put in 1200 for the long image side. Use “best” for jpg quality.


Are you keeping up with opportunities for big and small public art projects via www.callforentry.org? Café isn’t just limited to public art but includes other calls for work as well.
