This juried exhibition will showcase the twin disciplines of fine art original prints and artists’ books. Since the early Renaissance artists have explored each and often combined the two art forms, creating works of beauty and significance. Our challenge to you is to create original prints and/or artists’ books with content commenting on contemporary issues.

Juried Exhibition at SLOMA from October 7, 2016 through November 13, 2016.

Deadline to enter: July 30, 2016

Art is Transformation

"Bridging Homeboy Industries: Fabian Debora, Alex Kizu and Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez" opened at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, at California State University, San Bernardino, on October 6, 2014, and I was lucky enough to be at the opening reception. One of the things that struck me was the act of art as a method of humanizing those individuals that are often seen on the fringes of society, who are often ostracized—gang members. This exhibit becomes proof that art is transformative, not only for the artists but for the audience as well.

Since 1988 Homeboy Industries, a non-profit organization founded by Father Gregory Boyle, has been working to help gang members in Los Angeles construct a new life for themselves. There are many ways that Homeboy Industries does this; through jobs, therapy, and education. Another way however, is to encourage creativity, which is exactly the case with the three artists presenting their work.

Father Gregory Boyle, founder and executive director of Homeboy Industries, is scheduled to speak at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA) on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 6 p.m.

PRESS RELEASE: 

Father Boyle, a Los Angeles native, founded Homeboy Industries in 1988. The organization has since grown into the largest gang intervention, re-hab and re-entry program in the United States. Father Boyle is also the author of the New York Times best-selling book, “Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion.” Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the museum front desk during the Cal State San Bernardino event.

Entering the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1972, Father Boyle was ordained a priest in 1984. He received his B.A. in English from Gonzaga University, and M.A. in English from Loyola Marymount University and an advanced theology degree from the Westin School of Theology at Berkeley. He has taught at Loyola High School in Los Angeles; was chaplain in the Islas Marias Penal Colony in Mexico and at Folsom Prison and worked with Christian Base Communities in Cochobama, Bolivia.

Counter Culture: a way of life and set of attitudes opposed to or at variance with the prevailing social norm.

For every highlight in one’s life, there are moments and times when they were “wrong;” made the “wrong” choice, said the “wrong” thing, expressed themselves in the “wrong” way.

Too few times are we given the encouragement to question our humanity in a way that asks how our notions of right and wrong/ good and bad are bred. What we can determine—thankfully due to several hundred years of focused sociological and anthropological research— is that the weight of communal pressure and the desire for order and control is often the determining factor in governing what is appropriate for one’s community. So when mainstream standards of suitability and correctness are challenged, ignored and defied, you are left with the type of threat that causes fear, confusion and discomfort to those that cannot imagine a world outside of their own rigidly acceptable communal norms.
