Stepping Over the Sight Line: Athena Project’s Call for Entry

atStepping Over the Sight Line: Athena Project’s Call for Entry

Deadline: Tuesday November 15, 2016

Athena Project is a professional group of artists dedicated to supporting and expanding women's artistic contributions to the Denver metropolitan community. Stepping Over the Sight Line is a juried art show which kicks off Athena Project's 2017 Arts Festival. The show takes place at 40 West Arts Gallery at 1560 Teller Street in Lakewood beginning January 27, 2017 and closing on February 18, 2017.

In perspective drawing, the sight line is the line drawn from the artist's eye to points or images on a reality plane. The sight line enables an artist to closely describe a three dimensional form or scene in two dimensions. Visual artists will recognize this term as a foundation skill used in academic approaches to drawing and painting.

Stepping Over the Sight Line seeks submissions in all mediums that "cross" or "bend" the sight lines with work that reflects discovery or experimentation through unique perspective and composition or through an innovative approach to materials.

 Juror: Valerie Savarie, Valkarie Gallery

Valerie Savarie, local artist and director of Valkarie Gallery in Belmar, specializes in altered books. Taking from the written story within, she creates a visual interpretation of these stories, by cutting, sewing, painting and gluing. Books being inherently small and something that require an intimate relationship with the reader, so too are her book sculptures.

"I have always been fascinated and slightly obsessed with miniatures. The amount of detail that can be put into such a small area can be mind boggling. I love that with smaller sized art, it requires the viewer to get close to the piece and really look at it to understand what it is about. There is no side glances across the room - it is face to face contact; one must look into the eyes and soul of the piece."

Valarie Saverie, "and soon winter will be . . . "

Call for Entries: In the Flesh and Beyond at BCC

IN THE FLESH AND BEYOND: Artists Contemplate Their Own Vision of Jesus

An art show sponsored by Berkeley Community Church UCC

Entry Deadline: March 18, 2017


Most of us, whether religious or not, have a fixed mental image ofJesus Christ drawn from historic depictions. These mental images are often based on cultural stereotypes, political circumstance, and theological interpretation. However, a race- or gender-specific depiction of Jesus is limiting. In life, Jesus’ aim was to banish racial, social, and class distinctions. Jesus is, symbolically, “all in all”—everyman, everyperson.

What is your visual interpretation of Jesus? Are your images of Jesus literal, metaphorical, or something else entirely? Berkeley Community Church (United Church of Christ) invites artists to use their chosen media to address their perspective.

  • Show Date: Friday, April 7, 2017
  • Entry Deadline: March 18, 2017
  • Entrance Fee: $25 per piece
  • Total Awards: $250
  • Head Juror: Cecily Cullen—Managing Director and Curator of Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Center for Visual Art.
  • Secular submissions are welcome and encouraged. Chosen art will be displayed for one year. Artists may sell the art while it is on display, but purchaser must allow art to be displayed for the full year before actual possession.
