Call For Entries: This Is Me Now (Autobiographical Art)
Cottonwood Center for the Arts – For more information about entering please visit cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com/show-entry-guidelines/. For all 2017 Calls for Entries visit cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com/calls-for-entries/. This Is Me Now will open August 4, 2017 from 5 pm to 8 pm and close August 26, 2017. Autobiographical art is a representation of an event or events that have happened in the artist’s life. Different from a self portrait, autobiographical art focuses on experiences or memories; however, that doesn’t mean that the self need be absent from the work completely. The artist may choose to depict important figures from their past or present, situations or locations with strong emotional resonance, or even more abstract images that trigger specific feelings or attitudes. Autobiographical art persuades viewers to relate their own lived experiences and personal history to the work, and indeed the audience’s own life may be crucial to understanding it. Lived experience and personal history shape how viewers respond to autobiographical art. Autobiography transforms a life story into narrative, often as a way of making sense of that life. Although autobiography is perhaps most readily identified as a literary genre, it has also played an important role in visual art: from Van Gogh to On Kawara, from Rembrandt to Faith Ringgold, autobiography and exploration of the self has a long standing role in the arts. Within contemporary art, many artists draw on the personal experiences that shaped their lives to address social and political issues or to create new kinds of relationships between people. In this sense, autobiographical art can operate both as a way of conveying lived experience and as an apparatus for experiential, relational viewing. In this practice of relational viewing, an artist’s work can function as a powerful catalyst whereby viewers draw upon their own life stories to connect with the work. The story of a life is always being rewritten, and an artist trying to capture all of themselves in a work is an exercise in futility. The ultimate goal of autobiographical art is not to portray the essence or complete being of the artist, but rather to intentionally document an aspect of the artist’s identity. Any aspect of the artist’s sense of self may be represented, such as important memories, age, family history, sexual identity, insecurity, commitment, doubt, confidence, trust, or communication. All media will be considered.

Merrily We Roll Along
Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College – A Youth Repertory Ensemble Production Merrily We Roll Along is a thrilling and compelling Broadway fable about friendship, compromise and the high price of success. Stephen Sondheim and George Furth expertly blend the excitement and energy of a backstage musical with a poignant and emotional contemporary story about the importance of staying true to one’s ideals. Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer Franklin Shepard and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). The show ends with a touch of rueful irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered.
