"Beautiful & Powerful Statements..." is an international art exhibit featuring both calligraphy and art from re-purposed materials. Both the beautiful written word of calligraphy and the powerful statement made by art salvaged from older objects have messages for their viewers. We are especially interested in calligraphy that is not only visually lovely, but whose words are powerful and/or uplifting, and have expanded the concept of calligraphy to include any work in which TEXT is a major element. And while art from re-purposed materials often makes a strong statement, our interest is also to incorporate work that is visually appealing. Visit the website for the prospectus and additional details, and contact the Director for other information.

Visual Art, Audial Art, Poetry – Response to Intervention Magazine
Deadline: 11/06/2016 | Location: International
Response to Intervention Magazine is a juried, online, international periodical for art. When a piece of art is approved to be published, the staff will create a piece of art in response to that specific submission. All art made in response will fall under a single theme, but will relate directly to the submission it is responding to. In future issues, there will be two options for submissions. You will be able to either submit a traditional, standalone piece of art (that will be open to response if chosen for publishing), or you will be able to submit a piece of art in response to something that was published in a previous issue. The art created by the staff in response to submissions for this first issue will begin the conversation between the art pieces and create threads that future submissions may be directed towards if the artist wishes. Each pair of submission-and-response art will be published to the same page on the final website. The RIM’s goal is not only to connect a vast amount of art and artists under a common theme, but to continue relating the various pieces of art to each other throughout future issues. For now, however, all you need to know in order to submit is that this is open internationally, there is no fee to submit, there is no theme for submissions, and submissions are due November 6, 2016 11:59 pm EST. We are accepting 2D art (i.e. paintings, photographs, etc.), 3D art (i.e. clay, mixed media, metal, etc.), 4D art (video, music, time-based media, etc.), and poetry. Not all subcategories are listed. You may submit to more than one category. You may submit more than one piece of art. Please send all submissions to [email protected] In your submission, please include your name, where you are from, the title of your submission(s), what materials you used, and any other comments you would like to provide about yourself or your art. Please send any questions to [email protected] The website listed is a temporary website. The magazine will not be published on this website ( We will announce the published website on all social media accounts and send out an email when it is available. ..Blessings from The RIM…
