Welcome to Bird Land: Michele L'Heureux at Lamont Gallery
in Exeter, New Hampshire through October 13

Michele L'Heureux.

Phillips Exeter Academy's Lamont Gallery is featuring "Welcome to Bird Land: Michele L'Heureux" until October 13. L'Heureux is an artist and curator who is currently Director and Curator of the Montserrat College of Art galleries. For "Welcome to Bird Land," she's worked with artist and collaborator Helen Popinchalk to create, as described within the exhibition webpage, an "immersive ode to birds." The exhibition draws inspiration from the appearance, behavior, environment and human appreciation of birds. It also explores how an encounter with a single bird—the "spark bird" as described within the exhibition webpage—can inspire a lifetime of admiration for birds. The exhibition also features an interactive bird blind and multiple works of art from the Lamont Gallery collection. One doesn't have to be a bird-lover to enjoy this exhibit, though. "Welcome to Bird Land" reveals the similarities between birds and humans and showcases the importance of birds to both humans and our world. Lamont Gallery is located at 20 Main Street in Exeter, New Hampshire and is open Tuesday⎻Friday 9:00 a.m.⎻4:00 p.m. until August 24, after which it will be open Tuesday⎻Friday 9:00 a.m.⎻5:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m.⎻4:00 p.m. For more information, please visit exeter.edu/lamont-gallery/current-exhibition-welcome-bird-land.

Call for Entry: Parsing Sign and Image
An Open Juried National Exhibition
ALRI/The VETS Gallery
Art League Rhode Island

Images have power to convey ideas across languages and cultures. Today, our visual fields are filled with imagery, and a literate mind unconsciously reads text without considering it. From road signs and graffiti, to pop-up ads and text messages, we are constantly ingesting language and its message. How does the involuntary practice of reading and translating influence the artistic practice? Can text itself stand as an image, or will our minds always connect to a literal meaning? Must a word always carry meaning, or can words and letters act as graphic elements? Parsing Sign and Image seeks submissions that consider the influence of letters, text, signs and language.

Submit your artwork at: callforentry.org/festivals

Submission Deadline: July 28, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: On or before August 10, 2018 via email. No inquires please. All decisions are final.
