Denali National Park and Preserve (AK), National Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence, Winter and Summer 2018

For Visual Artists, Writers, Composers

Deadline: September 30th, 2017

From their call:  As we celebrate Denali National Park and Preserve’s 100th birthday, the park has a refreshed commitment to embrace the next century of inspiration and conservation.  Denali is seeking a diverse suite of voices to help share the unique story of Denali through art, with an eye to the future as we ask applicants to focus on the subjects of sustainability, recycling, re-purposing or climate change. Alaska Native artists and artists between the ages of 16 and 25 are strongly encouraged to apply.The Artist-in-Residence program is dedicated to exploring new ways for visitors to experience Denali. From hundreds of competitive applications each year, about a half-dozen accomplished artists, writers, and composers are invited by the park superintendent to spend ten days in Denali at their own expense the following winter or summer. Visits include a permit for limited access along the Denali Park Road and time alone at a historic ranger patrol cabin.

Each participant volunteers to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and to donate a finished work to the program collection. Artists are challenged to create works for visitors that convey a fresh and innovative perspective of Denali drawn from direct experience. With the welcome addition of several year-round gallery spaces beyond park boundaries, more of these donated works enjoy a larger life in the public eye.

Costs of program operations and collateral-duty staffing are supported by visitor entry fees. Costs of supplies for free outreach activities are provided by Alaska Geographic with funds derived from purchases at park bookstores.

The Residency Experience and Expectations:  All residents must provide their own transportation to and from the park, as well as any supplies, provisions, clothing, and outdoor gear for the duration of their stay. No stipend is provided. Each resident may bring one adult guest to stay within accommodations provided. Residents must have a valid driver’s license and be willing and able to drive according to prescribed “Rules of the Road.” Artists under the age of 18 will be required to have a parent/ guardian chaperone during their residency.

Winter (one writer, one artist): Depending on weather conditions, each winter resident may spend as many as four nights at the historic Upper Savage Cabin near Mile 13 of the Denali Park Road. Please be prepared for extreme winter conditions. There is no electricity or running water. There is an outhouse nearby, a small wood stove for heat, and a propane stove for cooking. A double bed, bedding, and an arctic sleeping bag are provided.The remaining six nights of a winter residency are based in shared, apartment-style housing at Park Headquarters near Mile 3.4 of the Park Road. Winter residency dates are intended to overlap so that the two participants can interact and share activities and experiences in the park to the largest extent possible. Please be proactive about expressing your interests for winter activities and experiences with program staff so that arrangements can be made well in advance.

Summer (one writer, one composer, two visual artists): Summer residencies are scheduled between June and September and are not concurrent. (The music composition residency may have preferential scheduling to coincide with the Denali Music Festival in mid-July each year.) Residencies are based at ranger patrol cabins located in remote settings, but within proximity to the Denali Park Road. Typically, offerings include a 14′ x 16′ cabin with an outhouse, propane heater, range, oven, and refrigerator, bunks with double beds, bedding, a full complement of cooking equipment, and a small resource library. There is no electricity or running water, but water jugs are replenished regularly by park maintenance staff. Showers, laundry, telephone, and limited access are available at the Toklat Road Camp near Mile 53.

National Call for Applicants: 2018 Artist in Residence Program at Zion National Park (UT), with stipend

National Call for Applicants: 2018 Artist in Residence Program at Zion National Park (UT), with stipend

Deadline for applications: July 31st, 2017

The Artist-in-Residence Program at Zion National Park offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. The selected artists will be given rent-free use of a furnished park house in the main canyon. Artists must be self-sufficient and provide all of their necessary supplies. Selected artists will receive a $300 stipend to assist with travel and supply expenses when their donated piece of work has been received by the park. This call applies to all sessions offered in 2018. Artists moving on to the second round will be contacted for phone interviews in mid-September and the ultimate selection will be made by mid-October.

The Zion National Park Artist in Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to live and work in the majestic desert environment of southern Utah for a period of one month. Four artists will be selected for two spring and two fall residency slots. All visual (painters, photographers, sculptures, etc.), performing (drama, dance, music, composition, etc.) and literary artists are welcome to apply. International applicants are not being accepted at this time.

The work completed under this program will contribute to the public understanding and appreciation of Zion National Park and should reflect the National Park Service’s mission to preserve and protect the park’s cultural and natural resources.

When in Residence the artist is highly independent, but is expected to present two public programs tailored to an individual’s medium, interest, experience, and audience. Holding periodic open studio hours is also encouraged and interacting with the public while in the park is required.

Upon conclusion of the Residency, participating artists are given up to six months to finish work inspired by the Residency. An original piece representative of the Residency will then be donated to Zion National Park. The work may be placed in the Park’s permanent museum collection, interpretive collection, or, in partnership with the Zion Natl Park Forever Project, may be used in other ways to financially support the park’s Artist in Residence programming.

The Darkroom Gallery (VT), International Call for Photography Submissions: The Face

Deadline: June 14th, 2017 11:59pm EST

From their call: A philosopher once wrote “The face is the soul of the body”. While one might not agree with the implications of that statement, a person’s facial expressions are a reflection of their personality whether or not they are aware of it.  As photographers, we are more or less successful at capturing the essence of a person in a single photo.

The purpose of this exhibition is to reveal the emotion, intelligence, passion, character, and immense variety expressed in the human face.  Whether your métier is the self portrait or photographing others, we’d like to see your work.

Juror: Catherine Just is an award winning photographer, artist and mentor living part time in both Los Angeles, California and Paris, France. Her career began in 1987 while studying photography, film and video at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Catherine’s work has been published on the cover of National Geographic Magazine, inside Oprah.com and PDN.com as well as galleries around the globe including her most recent collaborative show in Paris. She believes photography can be used to gather  evidence of what exists between words and to document the unseen but deeply felt spaces and places within the internal and external landscape.

 Entry fee.
