Studio Artist user Otto Laske is soliciting Studio Artist generated artwork for an upcoming art exhibit at the Rocky Nest Art Colony in Gloucester, MA. The show will happen in January 2014, but Otto needs artists to submit samples of their artwork for consideration for the show relatively soon.
Otto is willing to do a lot of the legwork to put together this Studio Artist focused exhibit, including dealing with the details of the printing and framing of the artwork locally for the show. So my understanding is that artists just need to submit digital files of their Studio Artist generated artwork to be used in the exhibit.
Otto invites artists to submit Studio Artist images of photographic quality, picking them for 'photographic clarity'. Here are some guidelines for artist's submissions.
5 work samples (jpgs) up to ½ mb each, 300 dpi, 4x6 inches (1800 x 1200 pixels), landscape or portrait
Naming convention for files (using underscore): First_lastname_ number_title_size_in_inches.jpg, for example: Ann_Howard_2_Enchantment_18x24.jpg
An artist statement indicating what you aim to achieve in your artistic work
If existing, a link to animations on which your stills, directly or indirectly, are based.
It's really great that Otto is willing to put in all the the work and effort needed to pull this Studio Artist specific art exhibit together. I hope that the Studio Artist user community will rise to the challenge and submit some great examples of their Studio Artist generated artwork for consideration for exhibit in the show.
Studio Artist user Dennis Miller's artwork has been recently featured at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center as part of a public media art exhibit titled “Art on the Marquee.”
Presented by Boston Cyberarts
and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, the exhibit features video art that is viewed by some 10,000 visitors each day.
“Art on the Marquee” offers artists more than 3,000 square feet of digital display on seven screens, providing full-motion video and a viewership of more than 100,000 pedestrians and motorists. The marquee is visible for a half a mile in many directions.

Dennis had this to say about the exhibit. "The Boston Cyberarts Festival, the major umbrella organization for digital media in New England, put out a call for work to be screened on an 80-feet screen outside the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in downtown Boston. This screen had been previously used to promote events at the convention center, but then the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority came up with the idea to commission new work from area artists for this very public space. Apparently 10,000 people pass by the screen every day.
There have been four commissioning rounds, and I have been in each one of them. All of the presented marquee art work was created entirely in Studio Artist. Given the very unusual configuration of the screen, which actually consists of seven separate panels, I felt Studio Artist would be the very best tool to use to create the work. Some of the guidelines requested work suitable for night viewing, soft and muted, while other day viewing rounds wanted bright looking artwork to compete with the daylight.
All of the works were created with the individual panels in mind at full 1920 x 1080 size. Then once the imagery was rendered, I used the provided After Effects template to align the work on the proper screen panels. The template gave me a 3D preview of the entire display, which is what I used to determine the placement of the various animation segments."
Dennis is a professor at Northeastern University in the College of Arts, Media, and Design. Dennis was also the primary force behind the Visual Music
festival. More information on Dennis's artwork, animations and music is available here
