sophiajacob presents a night of performances 
Organized by Elspeth Walker
Saturday, September 7. 8-11pm

From their press release:

Please join us at Floristree on September 7 between 8-11 pm for a free event and one night installation featuring a program of performances that overlap, erupt spontaneously, and come together to construct an unconventional landscape. Performers will collaborate in building a space that is easily dismantled, temporary, utopic and unsustainable. The program will feature live performance, durational action, live streaming and pre-recorded video, and works in which the body may be present or absent. In contrast to the anonymity associated with sophiajacob’s concurrent gallery installation, this event presents a chance to highlight the persona, identity, and presence of the artist.

sophiajacob’s current programming seeks to create a web of collaborators connected by this trifecta of projects, thereby developing overlap, relation, and confluence while seeking to destroy an indication towards a concrete, understandable, or straightforward persona of the artist.

An accompanying compilation text will be available for takeaway at this event.

Featured artists:
Mehron Abdollmohammadi, Noel Freibert, Brian Letchworth, Chloe Maratta, Hanna M. Owens, Pontius Piglet, Nikholis Planck, Harrison Tyler, Velvet, Alex Franz Zehetbauer

510 W. Franklin Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

The JCC of Greater Baltimore and Gordon Center for Performing Arts seek local artists to be a special part of a community wide Russian Cultural Event by painting a small set of wooden Russian Matryoshka Dolls in their own personal style, color, medium. These dolls will be on display in the Gordon Center gallery for the whole community to see during a 10-day celebration in October. Then the dolls will be placed into a silent auction that will help support ongoing Russian cultural events. We expect over 30 local artists to be involved with this project and many hundreds of patrons and community members to have the opportunity to see these pieces during the 10-day celebration.  The dolls are available for pick-up at the Owings Mills JCC and need to be returned, fully painted along with a brief artist statement by September 15th. For more information or to request to be involved, please let me know.  For more info, contact Randi Benesch at or 410-559-3609.



As a collaboration between The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education (SCEE) and The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA), The Landlab series invites professional artists to create projects which operate on the multiple platforms of artistic creation, ecological restoration and education.

Specifically, four paid residencies of $3,000 each, taking place from April – October 2014, will grant selected artists resources and space on SCEE’s 340-acre property to engage audiences in the processes of ecological stewardship, scientific investigation, and artistic creation. Our residency provides large outdoor spaces and limited indoor workspace, but does not provide living spaces. Artists will be expected to provide their own housing. Having a vehicle is recommended.

LandLab projects will result in innovative, art-based installations that prevent or remediate environmental damage conditions while raising public awareness about our local ecology.

LandLab seeks artists engaged in environmental exploration and discovery, who work well collaboratively across disciplines, have a working understanding and/or awareness of the ecology of Eastern Pennsylvania region, and are committed to deepening public awareness of environmental issues through their artistic practice. LandLab projects will prioritize time spent on site and a process of investigation.

The Schuylkill Center creates connections between people and nature by using our forests and fields as a living laboratory. The Center for Emerging Visual Artists provides career development services for professional visual artists, helps artists reach their audiences, and promotes interest in and understanding of the visual arts among citizens of the Philadelphia region. Together and through this first program of its kind in Philadelphia, we invite all professional visual artists who fit these criteria and are able to work on-site at SCEE for the summer of 2014 to apply before October 15, 2013.

BOPA and the Baltimore City Department of Transportation are pleased to announce a  public art opportunity that hopes to brighten and enhance the pedestrian and community experience along York Road.

Artists are invited to design and create original street signs that will be placed along York Road between 43rd and Glenwood Ave.  Multiple artists will be selected to participate in the project and can choose from creating an image directly onto a blank steel sign or submitting a design to be professionally printed.

So what do you think is missing from the existing cannon of street sign visual culture? What would you add to the landscape given the opportunity?

Submission Deadline: December 1st, 2013 at midnight
