Call to Artists
SOCIAL CODE is an exhibition of new works by local, state and national artists. The concept of the show is to demystify Art vs. Social Media as written about by Ben Davis, to create a social networking art show, and to provide artists an opportunity to show their work here at Arts Warehouse. Can an Instagram feed be a curated gallery? Is social media pulling us away from seeing works in person? How has the social aspect of our lives impacted our artistic practices? This call for art is seeking work that may explore or explain any of these questions as well as the general “battle” of Art vs. Social Media. This theme is open to interpretation by the artist – all mediums and ideas welcome.

The show will feature works by Florida artists in all media (except photography or digital images) and runs September 15th through November 4th.

All sales will benefit the Elliott Museum as well as the artists. Some edible artists may have samples available or even serve their creations after the judging concludes. Reception guests will have a chance to vote for their favorite edible creation in both People's Choice and Kids' Choice categories. There will also be a People's Choice award for traditional artwork that will be announced a week before the art exhibition closes.
Traditional artists have until August 12th to submit up to five pieces for consideration through callforentry.org. Culinary artists have until September 7th to submit plans for their projects. Submission guidelines, prospectuses, and rules can be found on the website or by visiting the Museum. Sponsorship opportunities are also available: call Deb Banta at 772-225-1961, ext. 124.

Swamp Ape Review is a national online literary journal founded and produced by the MFA in creative writing students at Florida Atlantic University.
The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
