INTERNATIONAL PRINT BIENNALE 2014

We are pleased to announce the third International Print Biennale will take place from 27 June to 8 August 2014. The event celebrates the role of print in contemporary practice and is the only event of its kind in the UK.

In 2011, we welcomed an audience of over 153,000 from all over the world to print exhibitions and events across the region with 15,000 taking part in public events and learning activities.

Galleries, museums, libraries and artists across the North East will present exhibitions and events that celebrate historical and contemporary printmaking. In previous years venues as diverse as Baltic, Bowes Museum and Vane have taken part and presented exhibitions from across the globe including exhibitions from Ikon Gallery, Centre for Fine Print Research (UWE, Bristol) and Tamarind Institute, USA. We anticipate more than 15 venues taking part and look forward to announcing the full programme early in 2014.

The 2014 International Print Awards are the centrepiece of the International Print Biennale. The Awards are an open submission opportunity for British and international artists and are open to all artists whose work encounters print. Works in any medium will be considered and is not restricted to 2 or 3 dimensional works.

Exhibitions of the selected works will be shown as part of the International Print Biennale at the Hatton Gallery and Northern Print from June to August 2014.

There are things we cannot see that watch us. It’s the stories we rarely tell that shape us.
Then It Was Dark is a collection of personal paranormal experiences, true ghost stories, friend-of-a-friend tales and brushes with the unknown.
Have you ever experienced something unnatural, inexplicable, or just strange? Ever seen a ghost? Ever watch a dozen blue-eyed snakes leap out of a campfire and slither away into the woods? Ever talk to a serial killer? We want your stories.
Personal experiences are best, but friend-of-a-friend stories or historical nonfiction are also good. The stories don’t have to be purely scary, they can be funny, or sad, or just strange. As long as they fit the theme of first-hand encounters with the paranormal or the unknown.
Accepted stories will be paid $35 a page, (more if the project reaches its stretch goals) plus contributor’s copies. We’re looking for stories that are ten pages or less right now.
If you are a writer looking for an artist, or an artist looking for a writer, we may be able to match you up.
If you are a creator with a story of your own and the chops to draw it, excellent!
If you are interested, send your pitches here. Please do not start work until your pitch is accepted (unless you just want to draw the story for yourself anyway.)
The deadline for pitches is March 15th, 2014. You can submit as many as you want, but try to narrow it down to two or three at the most.
Good luck out there.
Good luck.

The SPX 2014 Table Lottery Cometh!
Here’s the news, y’all.
We will soon be ready to begin registration for the long awaited SPX 2014 Exhibitor Table Lottery. This will be an new experience for all of us, but we’ll do our best to make it run quickly and smoothly.   This email contains a general run down of the lottery procedure.  It will be followed later in the week by the link for lottery registration.  After you review the info below, please do reach out with any questions or concerns by sending an e-mail to exhibitors@spxpo.com.  We will address them, pronto!!  Table Lottery Registration Basics SPX’s old first-come, first-serve mail order process for table registration didn’t translate well to the digital world. Between this basic issue and the increasing demand for tables we’ve moved to a new system for 2014 that’s a mix between invitations and a lottery pool.  Invitations to the legacy exhibitors went out over the past week.  If you did not receive one and would like to exhibit your work at SPX 2014 you may enter The Table Lottery to pursue table space (you can request anything from a half table to two full tables via the lottery). The link for lottery registration will be posted on January 24, and we’ll notify you when it goes live. You Will Have Plenty of Time Registration for The Table Lottery will run from January 24, 2014 through February 14, 2014. This will allow everyone plenty of time to register. And just as importantly, this should help to keep our poor web site from crashing to the ground. The Lottery Process is Easy There are just a few steps to the process:
Beginning January 24, go to the Lottery Registration Form and submit your info.
An e-mail will be sent back confirming your registration application.
Within 48 hours we will send you another e-mail with a 6 digit random number provided by Random.org
We will sort the lottery entrant list by random number in either ascending or order descending based on a coin flip.
We’ll apportion tables in the order dictated until we run out.
Remaining lottery registrants will be preserved in their lottery order as the 2014 Wait List.
Lottery winners will be announced on February 21, 2014.
Information about the process for paying for the tables will be made available in mid-February, with payment processing to begin the end of the month.
Winners will be given until March 15, 2014 to pay for their tables. Payment not received in that time frame will result in those tables in being forfeited and used for the Wait List.

There are Lots of Tables Available Our goal is to keep the show pretty evenly split between invited exhibitors and exhibitors registering from the lottery. Depending on the number of legacy invitations that are accepted, one half to one third of the tables at SPX will be filled this way, leaving over 120 tables available for the lottery. The Table Lottery Process Will Result In an Official Wait List Once The Table Lottery winners are determined, the remaining names will be shifted to the official 2014 Exhibitors Wait List. The Wait List will show where you are on the list and as tables become available, we will work the list off, top to bottom.  Please Play Fair Other festivals that have a lottery system for table registration have seen people attempt to game the system, with multiple entries per person to try to gain an advantage. As we see such actions as against the Spirit of SPX, we will be enforcing these simple lottery rules:
One lottery entry per person.
You can register for up to 2 tables, in half table increments. Each half table gets a free badge, extra badges will be $10.
 Please use the name on your lottery entry that will go into the Program Guide and on the SPX Exhibitors web page. Lottery entries using alias names will be disqualified.
Tables can only be transferred or assigned to a tablemate whose badge is registered for the winning table(s) at the time the payment is made. 
Payments for tables won in the lottery must be made by March 15. Tables not paid for by March 15 will be released to the Wait List.
By participating in The Table Lottery you are agreeing that the SPX Steering Committee will serve as the sole arbiter for any penalties resulting from misconduct during your participation in the SPX Table Lottery.
In response to incidents of cheating SPX reserves the right to exclude the offending entrants from future table lottery participation and SPX show promotional materials. 

Please follow the rules, play fair and uphold the community spirit of SPX that makes this show fun to put on and participate in. Please Register For Your Group
If you are sharing tables with other people, please have only 1 registration for your group. You will be able to list all of your table mates for the SPX web site, program guide and badges when you go to pay for the table.Further Details There is an FAQ at http://www.spxpo.com/lottery where you’ll find more info on The Table Lottery process. Stay tuned for the announcement of the availability of The Table Lottery Registration Form, coming to an e-mail inbox or social media stream near you. Thanks,Sam, Mike, and Warren

Joseph Antoine Ferdinand Plateau (14 October 1801 – 15 September 1883) was a Belgian physicist. He was the first person to demonstrate the illusion of a moving image. To do this he used counter rotating disks with repeating drawn images in small increments of motion on one and regularly spaced slits in the other. He called this device of 1832 the phenakistoscope

Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
