Please join us on Sunday, 19 October, from 4-6pm for “Borders and Exploration,” a gallery discussion related to a couple terms of particular interest that circulated during Brooke Moyse’s talk at the opening of her current portfolio exhibit, Of Wefts. We’ll address these terms with relation to her work, your work, artwork by others, other forms of creative expression, perhaps also cartography and outer space, and so forth. More information about Brooke’s show is here.
I’ve mentioned Exchange Rates: The Bushwick International Expo several times in recent notes, and I hope you’ve added its dates, October 23rd-26th, to your calendars.
For Exchange Rates, Centotto is collaborating with Milan-based Museo Microcollection to produce a work of sound art featuring texts, in Italian and French, by Elisa Bollazzi and Paris-based Hubert Renard. In addition, Centotto will present “Renderings: Encounters & Translations,” on Sunday the 26th at Livestream Public. More information about both collaborations is here. (Please note that Centotto, during Exchange Rates, will be open to the public only on the evening of Friday, 10/24, from 6-10pm.)
Much more information about Exchange Rates in general, including a full list of participating galleries, a map, and details about panel discussions and performances, is here.
Many thanks for your cortese attenzione,

CALL FOR PRINTS
We are calling for ten 11″ X 17″ color prints to use in advertising the Tax Benefits Project for very poor New Yorkers, run by the Women’s Center for Education and Career Advancement (WCECA). $50 will be paid for each print used. You submit the print by November 1, 2014. We will copy it onto posters and postcards and return the original to you. You have the copyright on your print; WCECA will use it solely for this project unless we get specific permission from you.
Description of the Tax Benefits Project
NYC’ers whose income is too low to necessitate filing income taxes (those on Public Assistance, Disability, SSI, low Social Security, just food stamps, or the street homeless) can still get a $62.50 NY State tax refund. ($250 if one also files for three back years.) The Tax Initiative consists of several soup kitchens and shelters that will help NYC’ers apply for the refund, and an artistic push designed to bring in qualified applicants.
Description of prints needed:
Your print’s message should be something like the following:
(on PA, food stamps, low SS or SSI, or nothing)
You can get a tax refund.
We will help you apply.
We would like prints that integrate text and design. The adjoining poster concerns a different topic, but demonstrates the idea of making the words part of the graphic, and using color effectively.
- By November 1, 2014, submit your print as a JPEG attachment to: email@example.com Subject line: Tax Benefits Project submission
- By December 15, 2014, WCECA will choose ten, pay each chosen artist $50, and borrow the original print to copy onto posters and postcards.
- Between January 15, 2015 and April 15, 2015, these posters and cards will be distributed throughout the neighborhoods of the soup kitchens and shelters of the Project.

Materials for the Arts is looking for an Artist Intern for our current Artist In Residence.
Our Artist In Residence, Lina Puerta, has just begun working in the MFTA Art Studio and is working toward an exhibit that will open at MFTA Gallery on Dec. 18 2014. Her work has been featured at many prestigious Museums and Galleries and she will engage and mentor the assistant in many important experiences and skills involved in the creation of artwork and preparation for an art show. www.linapuerta.net
The eligible student or recent graduate must be interested in assisting in the fabrication of sculptures and installation for the upcoming show. She is looking for someone with strong organizational skills, excellent attention to detail and ability to multi-task. The assistant must commit to two or three days a week between 9am-5pm. The position is available now and will last until the end of December 2014.
Materials for the Arts, a unit of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, is NYC’s premier reuse facility, offering thousands of pounds of reusable materials as art supplies to the city’s Public Artists, Teachers, and Community Centers. The MFTA Gallery hosts two MFTA Artists In Residence each year along with other exhibits of artwork made from repurposed materials.
