"Night News" - an occasional missive from the darkness
|"Fortunately, art is a community effort - a small but select community living in a spiritualized world, endeavoring to interpret the wars and the solitudes of the flesh." - Allen Ginsberg|
Our latest online exhibit, Auto-Nocturne is now live! Jurors Troy Paiva and Joe Reifer of the Pearsonville Junkyard Workshops delivered an insightful commentary on the Award Winners for the show – in their patented, conversational “Siskel and Ebert” style of critique! The exhibit is dedicated to the Night Photography work of Warren Bates (1961-2010).
|The deadline for submissions to our 23rd online show, The Nocturnes Twenty / Ten is fast approaching - now November 23, 2010. Please consider entering work - the format for this show will be a little diferent than our previous biennials, in that the final selections by the Juror(s) will be limited to Twenty pieces by Ten artists - Twenty / Ten - two (2) pieces by each artist. So put your editing caps on - all the details are at http://www.thenocturnes.com/forms/entryform_2010.html|
