Ebb & Flow: Dialogues between art and water
Ebb & Flow is a 6-week residency based on the premise that Southern Louisiana can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in human interaction with the urban and natural ecosystems. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.
DATES Artists may apply for their first, second, third & fourth choice of 6-week residency dates from the following: September 21 – November 2, 2012; November 5 – December 17, 2012; January 14 – February 24, 2013; February 27 – April 10, 2013.

Awarded by the Spencer Museum of Art (SMA), The Jack and Lavon Brosseau Creativity Awards recognize outstanding creativity and originality by University of Kansas undergraduate students. These awards celebrate KU undergraduate students who engage in creative scholarly work in any discipline. Collaborative work is especially encouraged, in line with the Museum’s commitment to bring together diverse people and ideas around a central topic or object.
The Brosseau Creativity Awards form part of the SMA mission to strengthen, support, and contribute to academic research and teaching at KU, as well as to foster interdisciplinary exploration at the intersection of art, ideas, and experience. The Spencer’s contemporary vision is to present its collection as a living archive that motivates creative work, object-centered research and teaching, and transformative public dialogue.
Lavon Brosseau, from Concordia, Kansas, believes in education and in the profound importance of teaching. The generosity of others made a college education a reality for her, and she wants to return the favor through the establishment of this award. Brosseau states, “There is a deep and almost sacred beauty in literature and in art. Each may deal with the abstract and each may involve interpretation, but each has its own reality that permits the mind to explore and to soar.”
Two Brosseau Creativity Awards will be given, one each in the categories of writing and diverse media. The categories have deliberately been defined in very broad terms, in order to encourage a wide range of submissions from the full spectrum of academic pursuits. The best creative work in any field evidences risk-taking and reflection, provides new insights, forms a part of critical thinking, and generates new ways of understanding.
Submissions to both categories are due Friday, March 16, 2012, at 4 PM. An interdisciplinary review committee determines the honored projects. Awardees for each category will receive cash prizes of approximately $500. As well, the selected projects may be considered for publication in The Register, the Museum’s annual scholarly journal.
Deadline: February 1, 2012

Exhibit Dates: Manifest's 9th Exhibition Season (Sept. 2012 - Aug. 2013)

Solo, Two-person, Group and Concept Submissions
SEASON 9 - 2012/2013
On average one-third of Manifest's exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City and San Francisco. It is important that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects. The group shows provide diversity of approach, media, style, and geographic origin, while the solo exhibits provide a deeper insight into one artist's vision.
Well over 100 artists exhibit, and more than 3000 patrons visit the gallery each year. Thousands of artists submit works to thematic projects produced at the gallery. And our exhibits are routinely reviewed in regional, and sometimes national, news and art publications.
Manifest is eager to receive proposals of various types, including any genre or media, and accepts these on an ongoing basis, reviewing them starting in early June in consideration for the upcoming season. The organization and gallery is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit with a mission to stand for quality in the visual arts. We set our own bar high, and generally exceed the expectations of both the exhibiting artists and our patrons with our programming.
All exhibit spaces are appropriately track-lit. The Main Gallery (the largest of the three) has street-facing windows nearly floor to ceiling providing excellent public exposure for the artwork 24/7. Exhibits are open to the public five hours a day, five days a week for a total of four weeks on view.
Gallery assignments are decided by the curatorial staff when planning the season. Proposals may suggest a gallery, or indicate the need for a specific type of space. For example, our Parallel Space gallery can be made completely dark even during daytime. But exhibit size and location will be determined by the curatorial staff at the time of season planning.
Types of proposals:
- Solo exhibits
- Two person exhibits
- Group shows
- Curatorial project (call for entries proposal by curator)
Deadline for Proposals: June 1, 2012

Not long after humanity began drawing, drawings evolved into writing. Pictures became symbols, abstraction blossomed, and language became visual. Two branches, sharing one root, carried forward people's ideas, feelings, and plans. The visual and the verbal arts shared the role of encapsulating civilization's data. And they continue to do so today, in so many wondrous and varied ways. TEXTUALITY is an exhibit that inquires into the overlap of these two branches, seeking examples of where the verbal is made visual, where language returns into image.
Manifest continues its eighth season with a project intended to feature and explore works which incorporate text or letter forms. These may be in ways that are quite straightforward, or which are abstract, fragmented, or in other ways surprising or significantly processed away from recognition. Manifest is eager to see just how artists make work of any media or genre (painting, drawing, collage, photography, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, video, and non-traditional art, etc.) using text or letter forms as a significant element.
Media: Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts genre and media, (including video, photography, sculpture, collage, design, sketching, illustration, etc.). The only limitation is that text or letter forms must be incorporated as a primary element in the realization of the work.
Eligibility: TEXTUALITY is open to everyone. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter
Exhibit dates: March 9 - April 6, 2012 (Main Gallery)
A full-color catalog will be produced. Exhibitors receive one free copy.
