Fully sponsored residencies for local, national, and international artists in all disciplines

The Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program awards fully sponsored residencies to 45 local, national, and international artists each year.

Included in the AIR program are two discipline-specific awards with fully sponsored, six to ten week residencies and cash prizes: the Chamberlain Award supports artists working in the discipline of social practice, whose creative practice implements non-traditional media in order to contribute to conversations about society and the manifestation of change for individual lives and communities. The Chiaro Award recognizes an accomplished, mid-career painter residing in the United States, and fosters their ability to continue to produce exceptional and exemplary work in the medium of painting.

Residency dates: March–December 2016 (Each Program year is divided into three seasons: Spring, March – May; Summer, June – August; and Fall, September – November)

This summer SF Camerawork teams up with LensCulture to host our Annual Juried Show. The theme this year is HEAT.
HEAT registers the volatility and restlessness that comes with long hot summers: violent crime rates increase, leases expire and people seek new homes, global weather changes signal an alarm, and warm summer days bring adults and children alike into the streets, parks, and beaches. SF Camerawork invites artists to submit work that responds to HEAT: the social, political, and climatic conflicts arising in rapidly changing environments. Following the lead of social and political advocates around the world, SF Camerawork asks artists working at all levels in photography to participate.
  • 2-5 finalists in an exhibition at SF Camerawork and article on LensCulture
  • 20 juror selections featured on interactive screens at SF Camerawork exhibition

Entry fee: $50 application fee for up to 15 images.

On The Ground Floor (CA), Call for Artists for Summer Group Exhibition: Roots

static1.squarespaceOn The Ground Floor (CA), Call for Artists for Summer Group Exhibition: Roots 

Deadline: May 30th, 2015

From their call:  On The Ground Floor (OTGF) is currently accepting submissions for our summer group exhibition “Roots,” on view June 27th through July 25th, 2015 in Los Angeles, CA.

Curious about the histories, origins, and the beginning of things, we ask emerging artists to probe their genesis – the dawning of tribe, the annals of ancestry, the birth of a movement. Those catalytic moments in time that give rise to new ethos. We also invite artists working with organic and/or sustainable materials to apply. Our aim is to feature projects born out of a response to horticulture, urban farming, and agriculture; or narratives that invoke our natural world. Open to all media. Curated by Malika Ali.

Established in the spring of 2014, OTGF hosts art shows, talks, readings, performances, and workshops that seek to foster meaningful conversations about the arts, create organic connections for artists, and preserve space for artistic experimentation and exploration. Through quarterly group exhibitions, OTGF strives to unite emerging artists with fresh audiences, collectors, critics, curators and gallerists. Our alternative space is located on the ground floor of a two-story residence situated above historic Leimert Park in South LA.

Entry fee.

Boston Center for the Arts (MA), Call for Artists, The 24th Annual Drawing Show: Feelers

24th_drawing_show_call_bannerBoston Center for the Arts (MA), Call for Artists, The 24th Annual Drawing Show: Feelers

Deadline: June 19th, 2015 

Curator’s Statement: If we consider that drawing’s inherent encounter with flatness provides a way of existing in a two-dimensional reality, we must then enter – and exit – this 2D world with an understanding of its possibilities and limitations.

In Edwin Abbott Abbott’s novel Flatland, a 19th century sci-fi examination of dimensions, Abbott describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures.  The squares, octagons, straight lines and so on are all governed by the rules of their flat world, and their behaviors and customs reflect their limited reality as they can comprehend it.  In Flatland, to be a “feeler” is to determine one’s surroundings by reaching out to touch it with appendages.

It is this kind of touching, testing and searching that unites the work in the show. Feelers brings together a group of artists, works, and practices that feature artists’ sensitivity to materials, subject matter, and the ability to use feelers to explore through practice and ideas.  Using the principles of drawing as its ground, the show opens up to gestures of flatness, line, touch and emotion. In Feelers, the work considers the line that is drawn between the experience of the three-dimensional world or the multi-dimensional interior world to a separate and exterior surface.

Eligibility: The 24th Drawing Show, Feelers, is open to all local, national and international artists.
Only complete submissions will be reviewed.

For more detailed information, eligibility requirements, and link to apply: http://bcaonline.org/visualarts/drawing-show-call.html

About: The Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is a not-for-profit performing and visual arts campus that supports working artists to create, perform and exhibit new works; develops new audiences; and connects the arts to community.

4Heads (NY), Call for The 8th Annual Governors Island Art Fair – New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition

GIAF4Heads (NY), Call for The 8th Annual Governors Island Art Fair – New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition

Deadline for Submission: June 1st, 2015

4heads is seeking Artists, Designers, and Galleries/Collectives to apply for the 8th Annual Governors Island Art Fair.

From their call:  Exhibit your art, your way, for free in New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition – Governors Island Art Fair.

At Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF), each artist is free to curate a full room of their own work in the historic buildings of this picturesque, almost surreal, former military base in the middle of New York Harbor.

Every weekend in September since 2008, 4heads has brought you Governors Island Art Fair, just minutes from Manhattan and Brooklyn via a scenic ferry ride. GIAF grants single exhibition rooms to over 100 individual artists, organizations and galleries from around the globe. Every year, 100,000 viewers visit this extensive exhibit housed in the landmark structures of New York’s favorite island get-away. GIAF is organized, produced, promoted and installed entirely by working artists and volunteers. Participating exhibitors in GIAF are responsible for transporting, installing and de-installing their own work. It is highly suggested (but not required) that each artist or their representative be present during the run of the event as much as possible, to communicate with viewers and collectors, and to take advantage of the invaluable contacts and relationships that inevitably form over the course of the month. If you are applying from overseas or across the country, we understand you may not be free every weekend but we mention this because we do find that artists who are present as much as possible get the most out of the experience and meet more collectors, gallerists and art writers than those who do not.

GIAF is housed in the deliciously landmark homes of former military officers on Governors Island and is run with a hearty DIY spirit and a strong sense of community. We expect our exhibitors to be resourceful, professional, self-sufficient, and well-versed in installing their own work – or finding someone who is. We are a stable, grass-roots, artist-run non-profit.

Website link: http://www.4heads.org

If you are an artist, designer or gallery and would like to submit an application please proceed to the proper page and read our Submissions Policies and FAQs. We do not accept submissions by mail.
