Call for Artists "Still Point III"

Still Point Art Gallery announces that submissions are now being accepted for its next online exhibition -- Still Point III.

One way of thinking about visual art is that the artist finds or discovers something - be it inside or outside of the artist - and, through art, holds it still. A photographer captures a moment in time with a click of the shutter and that moment is locked in stillness. A painter paints a scene using oils on canvas and that scene exists forever in a motionless state. A sculptor molds and shapes details of a human body, and that body stands frozen...never to age...never to change.

Still Point III is the third annual exhibition focused on exploring those things that artists, through art, hold still.

The deadline for submissions is March 21, 2011. More details about submissions, along with the entry form, may be found here.

The Abstract Sculpture of Pamela Soldwedel

Art that you want to touch and feel. The curves, the gentleness, the flow, the movement. Imagine your hand moving slowly as you progress up the curve and then speed down and around the curve. Like a car on a roller coaster. Imagine feeling the coolness of the stone or metal, the solidity of it and the gaps...the positive and negative space. Imagine picking it up...if you can...and holding it heavy in your lap. These are creations that need to be touched...need to be felt...even if only in your mind. In essence, these wonderful creations, by Pamela Soldwedel, have rhythm...the kind of rhythm that comes from deep within one's soul. The rhythm of life and of nature. The rhythm of love and of hope.
