The Dayton Visual Arts Center (OH), International Call for Artists: 2018 DVAC Biennial Call for Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: September 3rd, 2018

The Dayton Visual Arts Center is now accepting proposals for exhibitions for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons. In addition to annual exhibitions and projects that highlight the work of member artists, the Dayton Visual Arts Center will schedule:

  • Four to six exhibitions during each season; including one large solo show each year by a member artist; and  two exhibitions for its annual REACH (Realizing Ethnic Awareness and Cultural Heritage) Across Dayton collaboration with Sinclair Community College and EboNia Gallery.  REACH celebrates our African American, Appalachian, Latino, Native American, and all other ethnic communities and the rich commonalities they share.

Purpose: The Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC) is committed to:

  • Presenting contemporary visual arts of the highest caliber
  • Showing a wide range of styles and media
  • Representing diverse viewpoints and cultural backgrounds
  • Encouraging interaction between artists and the general public

Process, Eligibility, Media Coverage, Expenses and Programs: A three-person jury will review images from curators and artists; their recommendations will go to the Exhibition and Program Committee, who then consider the full proposals. A schedule for two seasons is then approved by The Dayton Visual Arts Center’s Board of Trustees. Although we are a member-based organization, non-members are encouraged to apply to this call. Exhibitions may be scheduled to be concurrent. The exhibition space is quite flexible and is appropriate for large pieces and site-specific installations. While the Dayton Visual Arts Center promotes local and regional artists through its programs and services, there is no geographic limit as to who may have an exhibit in the gallery. All printed materials and media releases will be prepared by the Dayton Visual Arts Center.

The Dayton Visual Arts Center manages for basic installation, an opening reception and direct mail publications to promote the exhibition. Any additional expenses (special installation furniture or lighting, publications, shipping, etc.) will not be covered by The Dayton Visual Arts Center unless approved in advance by the Board of Trustees. The Dayton Visual Arts Center insures work during exhibition, but not during transit. Sale of work exhibited in the gallery is encouraged, but we do not require that exhibited work be for sale. The gallery commission is 40 percent. Selected proposals will be rewarded a modest stipend, an illustrated color brochure with a critical essay, digital documentation and an opportunity for the exhibition to travel to additional venues throughout the state of Ohio. Education for artists and the general public is an important part of DVAC’s mission. The organization actively seeks an audience for the work it shows and schedules gallery talks and other programs with visiting artists whenever possible.

About the Space: The gallery is 1,800 square feet and 200 feet of running wall space, including three moveable walls. The ceiling is 16 feet high, with 50 feet of wall space at that height; the rest of the walls are 10 feet high. Natural light comes in to the space through storefront windows with a west exposure. Exhibitions generally run between four and seven weeks. Exhibitions are sometimes expanded to include showing work offsite with community partners. The Dayton Visual Arts Center maintains professional standards in installation and presentation, but also serves as a multipurpose space for community events, lectures and receptions. Due to the nature of how this space is used, there may be some limitations on 3-D work. Artwork may need to be moved at times for events.

Artist Support Program  LINK

The Jack Straw New Media Gallery is a unique venue in Seattle where artists from various disciplines can present works in which sound is an integral or exclusive element. This program enables artists to experiment with audio and other technology and to develop new skills and ideas in a supportive setting. Up to four artists/teams are selected to receive up to 20 hours of free studio time with an engineer, which they may use to realize the sound component of their project, with training as needed.

Each year, an invited curator selects 12 participants. The purpose of the Jack Straw Writers Program is to introduce writers to the medium of recorded audio; to develop their presentation skills for both live and recorded readings; to encourage the creation of new literary work; to present the writers and their work in live readings, in an anthology, on the web, and on the radio; and to build community among writers. Participating writers are presented in live readings, in the printed Jack Straw Writers Anthology; and on the web and radio.

Most of these activities take place between January and June. Additional Writers Program readings will take place around the community throughout the year, including a final reading with all of the writers in November.

The Artist in Residence is a new position created to further our work in Othering and Belonging and integrate with the Institute’s focus on arts and culture as a primary way to advance our collective vision of inclusion and belonging. The first Artist in Residence will be selected by a diverse group of public artists, advocates, and partners from the Haas Institute and its network. The work of the selected Artist in Residence should seek to advance and expand our concept of belonging at the nexus of being human and the systems and structures that operationalize structural inclusion.

The residency supports artists to create original work. The chosen artist’s project and process will illuminate and advance our understanding of belonging in new and complex ways. In particular, we are interested in works that explore practices of dialogue. The work will be presented at the Institute’s bi-annual Othering & Belonging conference in 2019, but should engage a broader audience through process and/or outcomes.

The Artist in Residence will be awarded with $10,000 in unrestricted funds.

The period of the residency will be October 1st, 2018 – May 1st, 2019. The Artist in Residence will be expected to be in person at the Othering & Belonging Conference on April 8th – 10th, 2019 in Oakland, California to showcase their work as part of the residency.

Griffin Museum of Photography (MA), Call for Applicants: John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship 2018

Griffin Museum of Photography (MA), Call for Applicants: John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship 2018

Deadline: September 5th, 2018

From their call:  The John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship seeks to recognize, encourage and reward photographers with the potential to create a body of work and sustain solo exhibitions. Awarded annually, the Scholarship provides recipients with a monetary award of $3,000, exhibition of their work at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and a volume from John’s personal library of photography books. The Scholarship seeks to provide a watershed moment in the professional lives of emerging photographers, providing them with the support and encouragement necessary to develop, articulate and grow their own vision for photography.

The scholarship is open to photographers who have produced individual works of photography and/or are in the process of producing bodies of work.

We are looking for candidates who are serious about photography, whose potential is emerging and whose photography will benefit from this scholarship. Candidates should not be currently enrolled in a photography degree program. There is no age limit. There are no residency requirements.

Photographers without gallery representation who have not exhibited solo in a gallery/museum setting or have not received significant (over $3000) grant funding are eligible (coffee shop, community gallery, library etc. are eligible exhibition settings). Past awardees of the Chervinsky Scholarship, paid employees of the Griffin Museum or their immediate families, Griffin Museum board members and jurors’ immediate families and those Griffin board members or jurors’ paid employees are not eligible.

This scholarship is not for well-established photographers. Well-established photographers are individuals in mid-photography-careers and are seen by the public and peers as distinguished in the field of photography and have many accomplishments as a photographer. Please note again that an artist who has had SOLO exhibitions in established galleries/museums or has gallery representation or received significant grant funding (over $3000) will be considered too accomplished to receive this scholarship.

Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (CA), National Call for Entries: Memory & Perception

Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (CA), National Call for Entries: Memory & Perception

Deadline: September 27th, 2018, midnight PST

Theme: Memory and Perception
Philip Guston said: “Painting is a kind of war between the moment and the pull of memory.” All artists integrate their life experiences into their artwork, integrating what they see and sense in the present with their memories of the past. That is what makes every artwork unique and valuable to the viewer. Anais Nin understood that the lens through which reality is perceived is shaped by the beholder, “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” In this exhibition, show us yourself by sharing how memory and perception have shaped your art.

Juror: Alan Bamberger
Alan is an internationally known art consultant, writer, and art reviewer located in San Francisco, CA where he has been actively involved with art for 40 years. His reviews of gallery and museum shows are eagerly anticipated both on his website, and his instagram account at @alanbamberger. His writings include hundreds of syndicated columns, articles and three books.

Open to all U.S. resident artists 18 and over. You are invited to submit up to 5 digital images of your original artwork completed in the past five years, not previously shown in a MarinMOCA or Artists of MarinMOCA exhibit. This exhibit is open to all media.

Awards:
First Place: $500.
Second Place: $300.
Third Place:$100.
Non-monetary Honorable Mention awards may be given at Juror’s discretion.

Texas A & M University, Call for Artists: Student Services Building Art Competition

Texas A & M University, Call for Artists: Student Services Building Art Competition

Deadline: September 22nd, 2018

Texas A&M University announces a  competition to commission art pieces for two locations in its new Student Services building on the main campus.  The building is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by October 2019.

The commission competition is open to artists (or artist teams) to design and fabricate site-specific artworks for two locations.    The first is located on the first floor at the southwest corner of the building.  The second will be located on the third floor in the public reception area at the south end of the building.  The intent of the project is to have high impact art pieces that will energize the spaces.  A jury will determine which space is assigned to each winning artist.

The competition will be in two parts.  First, artists should submit resumes that reflect their ability to handle a project of this size plus images of previous public art projects they have completed.  A jury will narrow down the artists to two or three per location.  These artists will then create a concept proposal package to include drawings and/or maquettes for their art piece, an artist statement, materials list, fabrication timeline and budget breakdown.  After a jury narrows the submissions down to one artist per location, the second phase begins.  The winning artist(s) would then work with representatives from the university, the architects, and the construction firm to finalize the concept, and ultimately install it. Designs may not protrude from the recessed area more than 10 inches per safety and ADA codes.

Inspiration Themes:  Welcoming, Inclusive, Accessible, Community, Innovative

Award Phase One:  A $4,000 stipend will be given to each semi-finalist to develop their concepts, which includes travel to present their concepts to the jury.

Award Phase Two

  • $90,000 commission for Location #1
  • $150,000 commission for Location #2

Commission  awards are intended to cover all artist costs including, but not limited to, artist travel, fabrication, shipping, installation, engineering review (if necessary), etc.  The University will provide lighting, signage, personnel lift, ladders, or scaffolding if needed for installation.
