CALL for ENTRIES: Spectrum Gestalt 5

2017 September 20

Learn more about Spectrum Gestalt 5 from the bG Gallery in Santa Monica! the full SPECTRUM

I dream of rainbow colored foods.  No doubt you’ve read more than one of my artificial food coloring rants. And, for the record, I don’t understand why one would color food for the sake of coloring them.  But the good news is, we are finding our way back to natural pigments made from tumeric, beet root & blueberries.  One day, I’ll get to eat rainbow cupcakes with full abandon & no fear.  This next Call wants the entire rainbow, but you’re only responsible for ONE of the colors.  Take a look…

Lemons fix everything.  You know that iced tea that is too bitter at your local diner.  Lemon.  And that soft drink that is too much syrup and not enough carbonation.  Lemon, again.  The vodka cranberry make with too much juice?  Lemon works better than lime.  It truly is a miracle fruit.  The gallery sponsoring this next Call comes with lemon built into the name.  Take a look…

There are reasons, philosophical to medical, both against & in favor of the consumption of some things.  But more often that not, it just comes down to personal taste.  I hear people complain about the flavor of cilantro on a seemingly non-stop basis, but I can’t imagine a cilantro-less world.  Some people are never going to eat cilantro; I am not going to stop eating it.  This next Call is like cilantro, you’re going to love it or hate it, but it is still going to be your choice –no one’s forcing you.  So, take a look, or not…

Learn more about the BotaniK exhibit from Las Laguna Gallery! best served WARM

I have a tiny refrigerator.  Well, let me re-phrase that.  I have a small (by American standards) full-size refrigerator. When I down-sized to a smaller home in preparation for a more mobile existence, my refrigerator shrank too.  Luckily, my new smaller home & its appliances are located only 5 minutes from the grocery store which is a marked improvement from the 20+ minutes it took before I moved.  As a result, I can now by produce more often & store it outside of my new, tiny-to-me refrigerator, making for fresher, tastier meals.   This next Call wants to know about your botanicals, but they don’t have to be edible.  Take a look…

Flowers & other plants & trees are her favorite subjects.  Sally says, she strives to paint something more than simply a realistic depiction of these subjects. “I interpret the subject with brush in hand, allowing my imagination to select colors & forms. . . Painting is my therapy, my peaceful, creative place, and I treasure that,” says the artist.

Last week I was in a restaurant with a gift shop, and I complained during the entire meal about Christmas decorations being out & available for sale in September.  Then on Monday, the tail end of Irma brought us 55° temperatures and rain.  Suddenly I couldn’t stop humming “Silver Bells” & craving hot chocolate.  I’ve got to get to a warmer climate before my family makes me sleep in the car, ha.  The magazine in this next Call will be distributed in Miami.  Maybe I should volunteer…

To aid the spirits, paths are marked with the brightly colored petals of marigold flowers so that they can create a path of light that shows the departed souls the way to the altars and their loved ones. The monarch butterflies, migrating back in large numbers to Mexico during the festivities of the Day of the Dead, have a symbolic significance as well because they are perceived as the spirits of returning loved ones making their way back home.”

Animals are adorable eaters.  I have watched videos of hedgehogs nibbling seemingly huge slices of carrot and hamsters eating every druplet of a blackberry as a single mouth full.  Each animal is smaller than the next making ordinary foods seem like surreal giant vegetation.  Ridiculous, but lovely.  This next Call wants your surreal work in honor of Man RayShow them what you’ve got…
