Cedarburg Art Museum

W63 N675 Washington Ave., Cedarburg, WI 53012

Submission Period: July 1 - 31, 2020

The Cedarburg Art Museum will be accepting submissions July 1 – 31, 2020 for our 7th Annual Juried Exhibition, “Masters as Muses”.   Many artists can look back and find master artists who have provided inspiration for their style of execution or subject matter.   In “Masters as Muses” artists are challenged to include an image of a master artist’s creation in their application that has inspired their style of art or a specific subject matter.   The idea is not to copy or re-create the master, but to re-invent.

Artists - Help Donate PPE to Medical Workers!

Friends, My name is Katie from Mask Crusaders MKE. MC-MKE is the newest chapter of a nationwide grassroots volunteer effort to facilitate the donation of extra masks, gloves, and other protective equipment from individuals and businesses to healthcare professionals and others working on the front lines of this epidemic. I'm reaching out to you today to ask whether your network of artists have any surplus protective equipment that they would be willing to donate to help healthcare workers in the Milwaukee area stay safe at work. COVID-19 frontline workers are running out of the protective equipment they need to keep themselves and those they serve safe, and your extras could save lives! We know that many Wisconsin businesses are closed or operating at a lower capacity during the state of emergency. During this time, we're asking for donations of any masks, gloves, protective eyewear and clothing, shoe covers, face shields or alcohol that individuals may not be using. Many studio artists regularly use at least some of these materials in their practice.  Our Milwaukee chapter is brand new, but nationwide Mask Crusaders has distributed nearly 64,000 pieces of protective equipment in just two weeks! DONATE SUPPLIES!  If you or anyone you know has supplies of needed equipment such as masks and gloves, please consider donating them to those on the frontline of the COVID-19 Pandemic at bit.ly/MaskCrusadersMKE-Donations. FIND DONATIONS! Frontline workers can receive donations by finding what they need on the form bit.ly/MaskCrusadersMKE-Recipients and then reaching out to donors directly to pick up. As I said we are a brand new chapter in the earliest stages of gathering donations so there may not be much available just now, but keep checking back! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! If you know others who are in the position to donate materials or who may be eager to receive donations, please share this email with them! We are all safer when we work together. You can find out more about Mask Crusaders in The New York Times or NPR! **NOTE: Donation/Recipient links are case sensitive!** Thank you for standing in solidarity with one another, Katie

Call to Artists

ArtDose Magazine is published in both Web pages and hard copy, and is the project of Frank Juarez.  Frank is a teacher in the Sheboygan area and has a gallery in Milwaukee. Hard copies were handed out at the September meeting.

The latest edition of 2300 hard copies of ArtDose is distributed to art venues, artists, art supply stores and art patrons in south east Wisconsin.  ArtDose is working to become a Who’s Who for the area. 

Featured Artists – a full page dedicated to an artist.  In addition to having your work as a featured artist, you will also be featured with a solo show at Frank’s gallery in the Marshall building in down town Milwaukee.
A listing for each submitting artist.   $30 for 6 months.

ArtDose may not seem to be a very well-known venue for artwork or to publicize your talents right now, but a lot of work is being done to get the hard copy up to 50 pages of Wisconsin Artists and their work and that can be done if we all support the effort by participating.

To be considered for publication, artist should email Frank Juarez at frankjuarezgallery@gmail.com  the following: one image of your work in a square format (1:1), high res (no greater than 3 MB) with title, medium, size, year, and retail price.
Questions can be directed to Frank or Janet Hudachek, JanetHudachek@gmail.com.
