5/15: Conveyor Magazine: Open Call for Submissions
May 15th, 2014 at Midnight PST
Conveyor Magazine is currently seeking photographic work for Issue No. 6. In this issue, we delve into the subject of alchemy as a method of transmutation, an intricate system of codes and rituals, and a precursor to modern science.
Even at its origin two thousand years ago in Greco-Roman Egypt, the art of alchemy encompassed far more than the pursuit of chrysopoeia—to transform lead into gold. Across history, alchemists in every corner sought to enhance their understanding of and mastery over the natural and spiritual realms. Incorporating seemingly disparate realms of human knowledge, alchemy flourished as an investigation into the unity of ideas. In pursuit of the Philosopher’s Stone, alchemists both ancient and modern have sought to uncover the hidden connections which unify the intellectual, the spiritual, and the physical in an attempt to transform nature, master matter, and live forever.
Conveyor Magazine is a visual publication concerned with initiating conversation across fields of science, technology, culture, and the arts through photography and print. Each issue explores a specific idea through close collaboration with artists, writers, and field specialists.
5/22: Fiber Options, Material Exploration National Juried Exhibition

Selected works will be on exhibit at MFA Circle Gallery, 18 State Circle, Annapolis, MD July 18 – August 10, 2014
Juror: Aaron McIntosh, Professor, Fiber Department Maryland Institute College of Art
6/6: Call for Entry: Strange Bedfellows
Strange Bedfellows will explore intimacy in its various incarnations, approaching the topic from a variety of angles. What do we expect from our closest relationships and how have those expectations changed over time? How are knowledge and intimacy intertwined? How does technology impact the way we build connections and what we expect from relationships? How do we build deep knowledge of other times and places? How do our political and civic institutions cultivate closeness (or, alternately distance)?
The call is open to all artists regardless of media used or geographic location. Artists do not need to be WPA members and there is no submission fee.
CALL FOR ENTRY INSTRUCTIONS: Submissions for Strange Bedfellows will be accepted through an online submission form on the WPA website: http://wpadc.submittable.com/submit/29180. Submitting artists must complete the registration form and upload the materials listed below with their submission. For any questions or technical difficulties related to the submission process, please contact Samantha May, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-234-7103 x 1
