Women’s Caucus for Art, Call for Self-Identified Women Artists: Who’s Afraid of Feminism?

Women’s Caucus for Art, Call for Self-Identified Women Artists: Who’s Afraid of Feminism?

Deadline: March 13th, 2015 

The Women’s Caucus for Art, hosted by AIR Gallery with juror Catherine Morris, Curator, Elizabeth Sackler Center announces a Call for Art: Who’s Afraid of Feminism? for September 2015.

There is a momentum growing with a surge of interest about the place of women in the art market and art world at large. With a record number of discussions about women in the arts through social media channels, what still needs to be said about feminism and what is relevant to be addressed to influence cultural attitudes and transform stereotypes?

WCA is seeking art from cross-generational, self-identified women artists that address feminism with a contemporary spin through works that present a message about the women’s experience to incite the viewer to question the social and political landscape and the need for gender equality – where feminism has been and where it is going.  The theme may be broadly interpreted from a political, personal or formal context through a variety of media.

-2Hemera Foundation, Call for Applicants: Tending Space Fellowship Program for Artists, 2015 (with stipend)

Deadline: February 15th, 2015

The Tending Space Fellowship Program for Artists was developed with the view that art has the capacity to infuse the experience of everyday life with awareness.

Qualified applicants will be artists who are rigorously committed to their art form and who have a demonstrable interest in contemplative practice.

The 2015 Tending Space fellowship program is open to visual and performing artists and writers. The application process for the 2015 program year closes on February 15th, 2015. Ten fellowships will be awarded.

During the six month period of the program, June through November 2015, fellows will be provided with the  support, including a stipend of $2,500, to be used for additional expenses related to fellowship activities, including travel to and from residential programs, materials, and income support. (Direct program costs, such as retreat tuition and room and board, are paid directly by Hemera and do not come out of the stipend.) Additional support is available for international fellows.

For full details, more information, list of participating retreat sites, link to application, and application instructions: http://www.hemerafoundation.org/for-artists/

Body and Soul, the 2015 Kreft Juried National Exhibition (March 24th – April 12th, 2015), will examine and illustrate the relationship between these two entities.

Only original artwork produced within the past five years will be accepted—reproductions are not permitted. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older to apply.
