Gallery Aferro (NJ), Open Call for Parent Artists: Sustainable Arts Fellowship, with stipend

Gallery Aferro (NJ), Open Call for Parent Artists:  Sustainable Arts Fellowship, with stipend

Fall 2018/Winter 2019:  6-Month Rotation

Deadline: June 23rd, 2018, 11:59pm EST

Gallery Aferro believes that persistent dedication to craft and creative output is a formula for success as an artist, but we are also passionate about identifying and eradicating barriers, and increasing equity! These issues are particularly visible in the lives of artists who are also parents. Many of our responsibilities and experiences define our time and creative output. Gallery Aferro is invested in uplifting artists to help them make art now, not later, and encouraging an environment where they can make work as large and complex as the vision of the artist. With the help of funding from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Gallery Aferro offers this open call to all artists that are parents* and would like to continue their creative practice in an engaged and energized studio residency in downtown Newark, NJ. The studio will be provided to the parent-artist for 6 months at no cost and will come with a $1000 stipend. The stipend and free studio will facilitate the parent-artist in coordinating effective time and energy to be spent in their studios.

*The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a “Parent” simply as “a person who is a father or mother” -or- “a person who has a child”, and although that may be a nice, tidy definition, we think it oversimplifies the term. A “Parent” we think can be defined in many ways that are definitely not tied to gender binaries or “having” a child. This open call is open to anyone who has or shares legal guardianship over a person under the age of 18.

This open call opportunity is for 2 available slots, August 19th, 2018 – February 19th, 2019 & February 20th, 2019 – August 20th, 2019. The studio is a newly renovated work-only space with large steel shelving. It is a private studio but the building is regularly busy with artists and art enthusiasts interested in collaboration and idea sharing. This call is open to artists, local or not, who are working in any media, and collectives may apply.

1708 Gallery invites national and international artists working in all media and disciplines to submit proposals for the 11th annual InLight Richmond. Proposals for InLight 2018 should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept.

InLight 2018 will take place on Friday, November 16th, 2018 from 7PM to Midnight AND on Saturday, November 17th, 2018, from 7pm to 10PM, at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. InLight is a public exhibition of contemporary light-based artworks—videos and projections, multi-media and interactive projects, sculptures, installations, performances.

Occurring during 1708 Gallery’s 40th Anniversary Year, InLight 2018 will focus on ideas of Community. Recent editorials have described two Richmonds. “RVA” encompasses revitalization, creativity and growth. “Richmond” is divided, challenged, and struggling. Artists are invited to consider this dynamic and to imagine an ideal community—ONE Richmond. While existing work will be considered, 1708 Gallery encourages artists to propose projects that consider this theme.

Potential sites for installations and performances include pathways, façades and other walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, and more. In addition, a limited number of interior sites MAY be available. Artists may propose a specific site for both pre-existing and site-responsive works. Please indicate if your work is site-specific on your entry form. 1708 Gallery reserves the right to make final site assignments.

Selection Criteria:
How the project relates to the theme of light
• How the project relates to the site and to ideas of Community
• The feasibility of the project
