2019 Juror: Sue Coe is a contemporary English artist, noted for her intensely political graphic illustrations and activism. Born in Staffordshire, England, she grew up near a slaughterhouse, which helped instill a lifelong passion for animal rights activism.

The artist uses painting, printmaking, and a realistic drawing style to depict scenes of animal suffering, as seen in BP Burns Turtles (2010).

A Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2020 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

ABOG

A Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2020 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Deadline: October 16th, 2019, 11:59pm EST

About the Fellowship: We believe in the power of socially engaged artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more just, equitable, sustainable, joyful, and compassionate future. We know this means that artists must take time and care to develop relationships built on mutual trust, as well as work with diverse non-arts partners and communities. We understand there are no ready-made roadmaps or guaranteed outcomes for this type of work, and are committed to learning how artists navigate these processes and relationships.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work. This is hard and time-consuming organizational, intellectual, and emotional work.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Additionally, field research replaces grant reporting written by the artist, and is grounded in the goals and areas of inquiry defined by the artist and the perspective of project participants.

Selected Fellows will receive:

  • $20,000 in minimally restricted support
  • Comprehensive written Field Research Reports that utilize action research methodology
  • Expenses Paid 2-day Orientation Retreat in NYC to engage a cohort of peer artists and ABOG staff and board (a requirement for the fellowship)
  • Ongoing invitations to networking events for all ABOG Fellows and Alumni twice annually (attendance voluntary)
  • Ongoing promotion of fellow’s projects through ABOG social media networks and website

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming. However, these content collaborations are not an obligation of the fellowship, and will be based on mutual interest under a separate contract.

New for 2020:A Blade of Grass awards 8 Fellowships for Socially Engaged Art each year. Beginning in 2020, two of these eight will be granted to a Los Angeles-based artist (any age) and a New York City-based artist of color under the age of 30.

Website link for more detailed information and to apply:http://www.abladeofgrass.org/fellowship-program/

Note: This is a two-step application process. Semi-finalists from the first round will be invited to submit a full application with an extended narrative, budget, and a timeline.

About: A Blade of Grass nurtures socially engaged art. They provide resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. They evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue. They are located in New York City.

International Call for Applicants: 2020 Harpo Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute (NM), with stipend

International Call for Applicants: 2020 Harpo Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute (NM), with stipend

Deadline: October 1st, 2019

The HARPO Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute is a prestigious award established in 2013 to provide an emerging visual artist with strong artistic ability and an evolving practice, the space and time to explore ideas and start new projects in a residency context at a pivotal moment in their professional development.

The HARPO Emerging Artist Fellow receives:

-$500 travel stipend
-A one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute
-A private room and bath
-A semi-private studio space
-Access to common facilities and basic tools
-A discounted membership to MAKE Santa Fe
-Breakfast food items
– Two communal meals
– Participation in monthly open studios

In 2020, the HARPO Fellowship residency can take place either January 6th – 31st, February 3rd – 28th, March 2nd – 27th, August 31st – September 25th, October 5th – 30th, or November 2nd – 27th.

Eligibility: This fellowship is open to international applicants who are self-defined under-recognized* visual artists** over the age of 25 andnot enrolled in a degree program at the time of the application deadline.

*To determine whether an artist is “under-recognized” the selection committee looks at an artist’s resume and overall presence in the field. If they see that the artist has already achieved a certain amount of prominence and recognition because they have (1) presented their work at venues such as major museums, art centers, international biennales, (2) received multiple notable awards and grants, (3) enjoy the representation of a prominent commercial gallery, they would likely not consider the applicant to be “under-recognized” by the field. As a general rule, the HARPO Foundation prefers that their funding go toward providing opportunities and encouragement to artists who have yet to receive this level of support.

**Visual Artists (e.g., Painting, Illustration, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking). Creative writing, dance, theater, film, digital/new media, performance art, and site specific installation art fall outside the purview of the HARPO Foundation. However, a proposal with an interdisciplinary approach may be considered as long as it has a strong visual art component.

To apply via slideroom: https://sfai.slideroom.com/#/login/program/50454

Website link: https://sfai.org/fellowships/harpo-fellowship/

About:  The Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are under recognized by the field. The foundation seeks to stimulate creative inquiry to encourage new modes of thinking about art. We view the definitions of art and artist to be open-ended and expansive.The Foundation’s grant program awards 7-10 grants annually. Grants are made directly to artists to support their development and to non-profit organizations in support of new work by artists.

Sulfur Studios (GA), Call for Artists, Re::Claimed

Sulfur Studios (GA), Call for Artists, Re::Claimed

Deadline: December 8th, 2019, 11:59pm EST

Sulfur Studios invites artists working in all mediums to submit artwork that is inspired by graffiti and street art to be displayed in a gallery setting. How does the context of the gallery change the impact the work has on the viewer? What happens when the work is removed from the street and placed in a white box environment? How does this transition from public to private spheres alter the reception of the work’s message? Does this in some way legitimize street art, or remove its integrity?

Juror: Lisa D. Watson is a Georgia based artist and garden designer whose environmental and social concerns are expressed in each project. Her artwork contains 90% reclaimed material such as paper products, metal, industrial wood, produce netting and more. She has used recycled objects as her medium for over 25 years and continually works towards a fully sustainable practice.

Exhibition dates: January 23rd – February 8th, 2020

Website link for submission guidelines and more information:http://sulfurstudios.org/reclaimed

About Sulfur Studios: We are a collaborative, community art space based in Savannah’s Starland District.  We offer 27 private art studios, as well as retail, gallery, and event spaces. They are located in Savannah, Georgia.

Spokane Interactive Arts (WA), Call for Applicants: 2019 – 2020 Winter Laboratory Residency for Interactive Artists, with stipend

Spokane Interactive Arts (WA), Call for Applicants: 2019 – 2020 Winter Laboratory Residency for Interactive Artists, with stipend

Deadline: August 30th, 2019

From their call: We’re currently accepting applications for 1 – 2 month winter residencies between December 1st, 2019 and January 31st, 2020, with applications due August 30th 2019. We ask that you put together a two-page proposal consisting of the Core Application and Project Proposal (see website link), and e-mail it to kryston@laboratoryspokane.com. Please submit it as a single attached file, smaller than 10mb or so, since we have to send all of these to our jury.

Laboratory is open to interactive artists looking to spend time working here in Spokane, Washington. We generally consider ‘interactive art’ to be artwork that reacts to people or live data, and we tend to focus on works that directly respond to the viewer, but we’re pretty open to whatever cool ideas you’ve got. We do a lot of projects that don’t involve electronics or programming, but engage viewers in tactile and immersive ways.

Living space:You’ll be getting a room in one of two newly renovated two bedroom apartments a historic building in downtown Spokane. This will be a shared living space with our residency coordinator occupying one room, and the other two rooms by other residents. Make sure to say hi!

You also get tickets to all the shows at the Bartlett, the concert venue on the first floor. Which you should take advantage of, since you’ll be listening to it either way – it’s an old structure, and if the band is loud, the building is loud. But the shows all end at 11, so there’s that, and the space faces an internal courtyard, so street noise isn’t a problem.

Also, although we love pets, our building doesn’t allow for them, so you’ll have to leave your cat/lizard/dolphin at home.

Work space: We have a medium sized studio space on the floor below you, this is a space available to all residents in our program (between 4-5 people at once) most of the time, residents work out of their rooms, or the tables in the apartment. We also have access to a large court yard where you can work on larger projects, weather permitting.

Stipend: Just because you eat, sleep, and breathe art doesn’t mean you don’t actually eat food. You’ll get $200 a month while you’re here to help out with that. However, due to US immigration law, we are unfortunately unable to offer the stipend to international applicants without work authorization visas.

Tools:We’ve got lots of projectors, Kinects, VR goggles, Arduinos, and whatever else lying around. If that’s not enough, we’re often willing to buy new tools if they’ll help you make something awesome and if they’ll be useful for other artists coming through the program. We have a whole list available upon request!

Mentorship: You’ll also have as much one-on-one consulting and help from our Executive Director as you want. Kryston joined our team in June of 2019, she will be here to build you up, and bounce ideas around. She will also be your connection to the community and events in Spokane. We’re also connected to a wide variety of audio engineers, painters, singers, programmers, and if we don’t already know who to talk to about your problem du jour, we’ll find them. One great resource is Chatham. He has been doing interactive art specifically for 3 years, and before that was working in interaction and interface design, with an emphasis on physical computing and novel user interactions. It’s basically having a free engineer on-call to help you figure out the technical details of your work.

Community: Our network in Spokane run deep, and we’d love to connect you with the cool people doing awesome work here. We operate out of the Richmond Art Collective, so you’ll be surrounded by local artists. We also work closely with local universities and community spaces to offer opportunities to give talks and classes. We also currently have three residential slots at any given time, so you’ll also have those artists to work with. In addition to your residency-mates, we’re also trying to build an online community of alumni for the program, and we’ll try and make connections between you and other people doing cool things related to what you do.

Michigan State University, Metrospace Gallery, National Call for Entries: Drawings at the Edge of Perception

Michigan State University, Metrospace Gallery, National Call for Entries: Drawings at the Edge of Perception

Deadline: August 23rd, 2019

From their call: Drawings at the Edge of Perception is a national call for artwork. The Renaissance Artist and Architect Brunelleschi is credited with inventing linear perspective and so transformed spatial illusion. We are currently in the midst of a technological renaissance with virtual reality creating another seismic shift in our sense of what illusion in Art is capable of and how the viewer can interact with it.  We seek to curate an exhibition of contemporary art that uses drawing or drawing inspired work that explores the boundaries of perception in its broadest sense. From Rorschach to dream imagery, anamorphosis to optical illusions. We are looking for work that asks the viewer to confront themselves anew, to see themselves and the world in a new way.  Visionary work that looks around the corner of possibility, drawings that make visible the boundary of what it means to see.

This call is open to everyone 18 years or older and is open to all media. Submissions can range from traditional to conceptual. Drawings at the Edge of Perception will be on view at (SCENE) Metrospace, an urban gallery in East Lansing, MI from September 13th – October 25th, 2019. The only required criteria is that works must include drawing or be inspired by drawing, all works of art must be made by visual artists living in the United States.

Juror: Benjamin Swallow Duke, Associate Professor, MSU Department of Art, Art History, and Design

Now in its 20th year, Artadia has provided nearly $7 million of support to U.S. artists. Other arts ventures founded by Christopher include Art+Culture Projects and Artspace.com, organizations that work to broaden awareness of the artists while creating sustainable sources of income for both artists and the programs showcasing their work, and his most recent endeavor, CollectorIQ, a sales platform for fine art. 

Past TBC shows have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Flaunt Magazine, Huffington Post, KCRW’s Art Talk, Creators Project, and L’Oeil de la Photographie among numerous other publications.
