Both Southern Prize recipients will also receive a two-week residency at The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences. A separate national jury will convene to evaluate the body of work represented by the nine State Fellowship recipients and select the Prize winner and Finalist.

"We are leveling the playing field for emerging artists. This exhibit will be blind juried by a curator and/or art professional from a South Florida Cultural Institution. This allows artist’ work to be evaluated purely on merit rather than resume content, leveling the playing field for emerging artists.

We don’t care about your fancy resume or lack thereof for this show. We care about the art! The Coral Springs Museum of Art encourages artists to think outside the box and use their creativity to engage with thoughts and issues facing their communities, lives, work and the theme of this show. Be brave! This is a safe space to try new or hard things."

Call for Artist: Studio 18 Pembroke Pines presents Duality; The Dichotomy of Being

Studio 18 Pembroke Pines 


Duality; The Dichotomy of Being

DEADLINE: December 21, 2020
Virtual Exhibition: January 15 - March 3, 2021
Studio 18 Pembroke Pines Curator: Maritza Benson
1101 Poinciana Drive, Pembroke Pines, Florida

Studio 18 in the Pines is seeking visual artists that create works that explore the concept of duality. We experience this world as a duality, a contrast between two concepts or two aspects of reality.

Day and Night. Life and Death. Order or Chaos. Good and Evil. Me and my Shadow. The need to lead a high octane, high impact life; while also craving the simple life. Messages in this society that you must be true to yourself but then you must do it in the way that others see fit. Can these two worlds co-exist, or are they distinct and contrasted with one another? Must we make a choice, or can we make them work in harmony?

We are looking for artistic works that explore these questions and the experience of duality.

Experience The Canine Creations of “Dog Artist” Skip Hartzell

South Florida artist Skip Hartzell creates large oil paintings, works on paper and four-legged sculptures inspired by man’s best friend.

Skip Hartzell in his art studio with his dogs

Port St. Lucie-based artist Skip Hartzell is known locally as “the dog artist”. He is a longtime supporter of no-kill animal rescues and donates proceeds from the sale of his artworks to animal-rescue, no kill shelters. The artworks he creates are inspired from morning walks accompanied by a furry friend, figments of his artistic imagination and creative vision. Hartzell creates directly from his emotions and instincts, his work is inspired by dogs of all shapes, sizes and varieties.

Skip Hartzell Collectors, Art Palm Beach
Skip Hartzell’s art studio is crawling with canine-based works. Whether he’s painting or sculpting, Hartzell’s dogs have a wonderful quality of friendliness about them, and it’s hard to keep yourself from reaching out to touch. And that’s perfectly okay with Hartzell. He’s never been one to place a rope around his artwork.

‘Toy Four’ (2018), Oil on Canvas, 60 x 48 Inches

“The texture is so important because the tactile experience of sculpture is so primal for me,” he says. “You grab with your hands and just start to mush things together and get your fingers on the materials, and there is just such a richness to the feel.” He says whenever he’s doing a show, he is quick to hand his sculptures to the patrons so they can enjoy the feeling, too. And whether it’s paint on canvas or sculpture, the texture is one of the most captivating and inviting parts of experiencing his artwork. Hartzell may not set out to mimic the look of someone’s beloved pet, but he says his sculptures and paintings often evoke a fond memory of a furry family member.

'Wall Dog #5', Papercrete and Resin, 8 x 12 inches

“If you love dogs, you are going to love Skip Hartzell’s soulful pieces. His work is representative of caricature features of dogs,” said J. Marshall Adams, the executive director of the A.E. Backus Museum and Gallery in Historic Downtown Fort Pierce where Hartzell has held exhibitions.

'Dogs of the Apocalypse', Oil & Flashe on Canvas, 48 x 48 Inches
“When you walk into Skip Hartzell’s studio you are greeted by hundreds of dogs in all shapes, sizes, textures and colors. There are dogs on the wall that create an intriguing color field installation. There are medium size dogs standing or sitting and hanging all over the place. And his large dogs just ask to be hugged,” said Rickie Leiter, Publisher of The Rickie Report.

Cultural Council of Palm Beach County's 2019 group show, "Paws and Claws: Animals in Art"

“Although I love dogs, my art is about much more, it is about form, movement and mostly about the painterly expression and texture of the surface,” Hartzell says. The artist has held numerous solo exhibitions at notable art galleries and prestigious art fairs such as Art Palm Beach, A.E. Backus Museum, ArtHouse 429, Paul Fisher Gallery, Aqua Art Fair during Art Basel Miami Beach and many more.

Call for Artists: Port Everglades – Cruise Terminal 29 Interior

In partnership with Port Everglades, Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program is seeking to commission one artist or artist team to design and install artwork that enhances interior spaces within Cruise Terminal 29, Port Everglades, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The prominent location presents an opportunity for highly visible and vibrant artwork that contributes to Port Everglades’ unique identity.

Port Everglades is an economic powerhouse for Broward County and one of the most diverse seaports in the United States. Located in the heart of Greater Fort Lauderdale and the City of Hollywood, Port Everglades has been one of the busiest cruise ports in the world. It is a leading container port in Florida and among the most active cargo ports in the United States, and is South Florida’s main seaport for receiving petroleum products including gasoline and jet fuel. A foreign-trade zone and available office space inside the Port’s secure area make Port Everglades a highly desirable business center for world trade. The Port Everglades Department is a self-supporting Enterprise Fund of Broward County government and does not rely on local tax dollars for operations or capital improvements. There are 13,127 people who work for companies that provide direct services to Port Everglades.

Site Description and Design Parameters
The artwork may be hand painted directly onto walls adjacent to the staircase/escalator that takes passengers to and from the second-floor embarkation room or may be hung on the walls. Additional enhancements may be physically adhered to the walls. Artistic components requiring engineering and mechanical fasteners would not be appropriate. Materials should be able to withstand humid environments.

Artist Services
The selected artist will be required to enter into an agreement with the County, visit the site, and install the artwork.

Art Project Budget
The total budget established for this project will not exceed $3,000. The budget must include Artist’s design fee, any required ladders, lifts or scaffolding, artwork materials, installation, insurance, travel, Artist’s contingency, and all applicable taxes.

Artist Eligibility

The Broward Cultural Council understands that Broward County’s cultural vibrancy is due to its diversity. As such, Broward Cultural Council acknowledges that all cultures are vital to the arts and the promotion of a culturally democratic world.

Therefore, the Broward Cultural Council supports the development, expression, and preservation of art and culture of all communities, groups and individuals. The Council aims to ensure that diverse populations have opportunities to appreciate and value the arts and to participate.
