Ebu-Arts Contest

Ebu-Arts Contest

May 2012—Calling all artists! The creators of Ebu-Arts, a new and exciting art genre, are thrilled to announce the first-ever Ebu-Arts contest, which has officially kicked off and will welcome submissions until Sept. 12, 2012. Judges and curators are on the hunt for the next great Ebu-Artist, whose work will not only be rewarded with a $10,000 cash prize, but will also land in the running to be showcased by the premiere Ebu-Arts sponsor, as yet to be announced.

What is Ebu-Arts? In the simplest and most concise terms, this thrilling and comprehensive new genre is art from art. It comprises visual artworks that are themselves comprised of visual artworks—pieces that, be they two- or three-dimensional, parlay the beauty and value of pre-existing handiwork into a larger creation that achieves a cumulative grandeur. Thus, an Ebu-Arts piece boasts tiers of aesthetic merit and excitement, standing as both a compilation of artistry that holds its own great value, and as a singular passion project that takes on new life. A photomosaic may be the most recognizable Ebu-Arts example, wherein hundreds, or even thousands, of invaluable shots are meticulously merged for the greater good. Yet that would only be scratching the surface when assessing this genre’s reach.

What else might constitute an Ebu-Arts piece? While parameters do exist, the possibilities remain endless. An artist might construct a life-size sculpture out of fine, handmade jewelry, while another might weave a remarkable tapestry from boldly designed product labels. An artist may see the beauty of fine silverware and use it to craft a breathtaking wall mount, while another may form a postmodern statue made entirely of Apple’s masterfully designed electronics. Perhaps it is even the artist himself who generates the contributory elements that add up to his opus. But Ebu-Arts is not merely adornment art, nor does it identify as recycled or upcycled art, exciting as those green and growing movements may be. Ebu-Arts transcends the notion of instilling polish and allure in something once perceived as worthless. It rather marks the evolution of that which already shimmered, making it part of a communal body that serves as a wellspring of brilliance and ebullience—a work of Ebu-Art.

All information necessary for prospective contestants, including submission forms and contest guidelines, can be found at the Ebu-Arts website, www.Ebu-Arts.org. Again, the deadline for submissions is Monday, September 10, 2012. The first prize winner will receive $10,000 and many submissions will have the opportunity to have their works displayed in the Ebu-Arts Museum from December 7th through January 11th. Examples of Ebu-Arts pieces can also be found at the site, as well as at the Ebu-Arts Tumblr page, http://ebu-arts.tumblr.com/. Want more Ebu-Arts?

About Ebu-Arts:

The name, like the genre, is the brainchild of Win Straube, an international businessman, educator, ardent art patron, and practiced artist, whose professional headquarters outside Princeton, NJ houses the flagship Ebu-Arts gallery. The spark that ignited Ebu-Arts came to Straube amid the creation of what would become his own Ebu-Arts pieces—vibrant, romantic, deluxe collage works, each made up of hundreds of rare and handsome stamps collected during Straube’s world travels. The concept of each lovingly rendered stamp contributing to one larger entity appealed greatly to Straube, yielding the inspiration to open the door and welcome all manner of artful materials that would, together, lead to similar entities. There’s a larger theme at work here, a theme that reflects the very human virtues of individuals lending themselves to something greater, while that something greater remains dependent upon the individuals’ unique assets. The way Straube sees it, each Ebu-Arts piece should fundamentally stand as its own universe—an Ebullient and Brilliant Universe made whole by its gleaming contents. And, if nothing else, work in this aptly titled genre should send one’s enthusiasm skyward. “Visual art, like books and music, is supposed to speak to you, and expand your horizons,” Straube says. “It should make you think and feel good and even lift you. Ebu-Arts can and should do just that: elevate your spirit.”

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
