City of Kirkland (WA), International Request for Qualifications for Artists or Artist Teams: Call for Concepts/Kalakala Ferry

City of Kirkland (WA), International Request for Qualifications for Artists or Artist Teams: Call for Concepts/Kalakala Ferry

Deadline: October 16th, 2017

The City of Kirkland is seeking qualified artists or artist teams to develop concepts for artwork using salvaged pieces of the Kalakala – an iconic Art Deco ferry boat that was built in Kirkland and sailed the Puget Sound region. Up to four artists will be selected to develop concepts. These concepts will be reviewed by the Kalakala Committee, representing citizens, local historians and artists, and the Cultural Arts Commission with a final decision by the City Council.

Budget: $2,500 for each artist selected

Background: In early 2015, the City of Kirkland purchased several pieces of the historic Kalakala Ferry, which was built at the Lake Washington Shipyards (present day Carillon Point) in 1935. The City of Kirkland has allocated funds for the development of art concepts with future funding to be determined.

Scope of Work:Artists are encouraged to respond to the following considerations in developing an art concept for repurposing the Kalakala:

  • Use the remnants of the Kalakala to create something that commemorates the vessel, its contribution to Northwest maritime history, its unique expression of Art Deco, and innovative engineering.
  • Consider using new technologies in an art concept.
  • Develop a site-specific installation. There are possible public spaces, the most likely along the Cross Kirkland Corridor, an abandoned stretch of the former BNSF Railroad line that runs north-south through Kirkland with several waterfront overlooks.

MadArt Studio (WA), Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence, with honorarium

MadArt Studio (WA), Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence, with honorarium

Deadline: October 23rd, 2017, 5:00pm PST

MadArt Studio invites artists whose focus is on large-scale, site-specific installation to apply for a flexible 3-month project-based residency to take place between May and August 2018.

The intention of MadArt’s artist-in-residence program is to create a platform for artists to investigate and develop their contemporary artistic practice by providing the necessary work space, resources, support staff, and tools to create an exhibition.

This is a project-based residency and funding will be determined based on each proposal. In addition to project costs, an honorarium of $5,000 will be provided to the selected artist. If the selected artist is not local to Seattle, on-site housing will be provided during the residency. No fee to apply.

MadArt offers a 3,500-square-foot studio space with access to a genie lift, basic tools, loading dock, internet, and parking for one vehicle. Please click on the link below for detailed floor plans and information on significant architectural features, including large floor-to-ceiling street-facing windows, varying ceiling heights, and dome skylights. The Studio Manager and Director provide ongoing assistance in various areas throughout the residency. Studio link: http://madartseattle.com/madart-studio/

Website link for more detailed information and to apply: https://madartstudio.submittable.com/submit/92463/madart-studio-residency

About: Located in Seattle, MadArt Studio is a contemporary art space with a mission to support artists, bring art into people’s lives in unexpected ways, and create community involvement in the arts. Before securing a physical exhibition space, MadArt’s programming was nomadic and took place in a variety of non-traditional spaces, including houses slated for demolition, business storefronts, and public parks. In 2014, MadArt moved into an architecturally distinct building in the South Lake Union neighborhood and began commissioning  large-scale, site-specific artworks that require extended periods of installation. This fostered a project-based, artist-in-residence program that culminates with an exhibition at MadArt Studio.

CERF+, National Call for Applicants: Cycle 2, Artists “Get Ready” Grants

CERF+, National Call for Applicants: Cycle 2, Artists “Get Ready” Grants

Deadline: November 30th, 2017

CERF+ announces Cycle 2 of their Artists “Get Ready” Grants to help artists working in craft disciplines safeguard their studios and protect their careers. Artists “Get Ready” Grants help artists working in craft disciplines safeguard their studios, protect their careers + prepare for emergencies. Up to 10 grants ($500 for individual artists and $1,500 for groups of artists) will be awarded on a competitive basis to eligible artists towards the purchase of goods or services that will have a direct impact on increasing career + emergency readiness.

“For over 30 years, CERF+’s financial assistance for artists experiencing career-threatening disasters has been critical in helping them get back on their feet and back to work,” said Executive Director Cornelia Carey. “We want to help artists avoid the impacts of these disasters before they happen. This new funding program will go a long way toward helping artists make that a reality.”

Artists are encouraged to use CERF+’s Risk Assessment  to generate ideas and review recommended activities in the Get Ready and Studio Safety sections of the www.cerfplus.org when applying for the Artists “Get Ready” Grant. Eligible activities include: business protection (business insurance, inventory software, business continuity planning, creating secure business record-keeping systems), studio safeguards (safety equipment, improvements to studio health and safety, purchasing safer materials and supplies), emergency/disaster readiness (emergency tools, supplies and equipment, studio upgrades to reduce disaster risk, theft protection measures) and career protection (legacy or estate planning, financial planning services, documentation or digitization of artwork and/or related records, legal counsel, enrolling in a professional development course or workshop).

Eligibility:

  • Be an artist or a group of artists with an ongoing history of producing a body of work in
    a craft discipline or disciplines (such as woodworkers, fiber artists, metalsmiths, glass potters, furniture makers, cultural-based craft, or alternative craft).
  • Be a legal U.S. resident.

Website link for more detailed information and to apply: https://cerfplus.org/get-ready/get-ready-grants/

About: In 1985, the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (now a program of CERF+) began when co-founders Carol Sedestrom Ross, then president of American Craft Enterprises, and glassblower Josh Simpson recognized the inherent generosity within the craft community. Artists would “pass the hat” to collect monetary donations during shows and exhibitions in support of fellow artists dealing with emergencies. CERF+ was founded to expand this grassroots effort and has since provided almost $2 million in financial assistance and more than $400,000 in donated services to professional artists in craft disciplines nationwide. Mission: CERF+ serves artists who work in craft disciplines by providing a safety net to support strong and sustainable careers. CERF+’s core services are education programs, advocacy, network building and emergency relief.

The Lighthouse Works (NY), National Call for Applicants, Artists & Writers: The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship Artist-in-Residence Program, with stipend

The Lighthouse Works (NY), National Call for Applicants, Artists & Writers: The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship Artist-in-Residence Program, with stipend

Deadline: October 15th, 2017

Sessions*:  Winter, Spring I, Spring II

From their call: The Lighthouse Works’ Fellowship is an artist-in-residence program that strives to support artists and writers working in the vanguard of their creative fields.

The program accepts artists working in a wide range of disciplines, but we are best able to accommodate visual artists and writers. Fellowships are six weeks in length, occur year round and provide fellows with housing, food, studio space, a $250 travel allowance and a $1,500 stipend. Artistic excellence is the primary criteria for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

While in residence, our fellows’ primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their work but we do ask every fellow to participate in an artist talk on the first weekend of the fellowship and to open their studio for an afternoon at the session’s conclusion.

Our program is unique in its size and intimacy; we award fellowships to 25 artists a year. In a program this small, everyone gets to to know each other. Thus the fellowship, while allowing ample solitude and plenty of unstructured work time, also allows for conversation, critique and collaboration.

*Sessions: Winter – January 23rd to March 6th, 2018
Spring I – March 20th to May 1st, 2018
Spring II – May 15th to June 19th, 2018

Artists must be able to work in the office of SF Planning, work collaboratively with available staff, and research subjects that fall under the purview of SF Planning.

Honorarium:  The selected artist will receive a $10,000 honorarium that will cover the time spent in the residency, end-of-residency presentations to both departments, participation in one public program (artist lecture, panel discussion…), and the creation of a substantial new work or body of works. (Note that the honorarium will be issued in multiple payments related to particular deliverables.)

Eligibility: The RFQ is open to professional visual artists who reside in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The application will be evaluated by a panel of SFAC Galleries and SF Planning staff based on the following criteria:

  • The artist must reside or have a studio within the greater Bay Area.
  • Complete application submitted prior to the application deadline.
  • Artwork examples submitted represent the artist’s own original creative work.
  • The artist’s work is judged to be appropriate to the goals of the project and responsive to the needs of SFAC and SF Planning.
  • The artist’s professional experience is adequate to meet the demands of the project. Examples would include the execution of past projects or residencies of a similar scale. Also include any experience working collaboratively with nonprofit organizations or businesses.
  • The artist must be available for the residency period (February 6 – April 17, 2018 [10 weeks]).
  • The artist must be able to engage with SF Planning a minimum of 5 hours a week (during SF Planning business hours) during the residency period.

From their call: Our artist residency programs – the Jack Straw Artist Support Program, New Media Gallery Program, and Writers Program – offer established and emerging artists in diverse disciplines an opportunity to explore the creative use of sound in a professional atmosphere through residencies in our recording studios, training, and participation in our various presentation programs.

Artists living outside of the Puget Sound region may apply, but should be aware that expenses for travel, lodging, etc. are not included in the award. Artists may apply as individuals or in teams.

The Artist Support Program has been assisting artists working creatively with sound since 1994. Up to eight artists/teams are awarded 20 hours of free recording and production time with an engineer at Jack Straw Cultural Center; an additional 10-12 artists/teams receive matching awards. The Artist Support Program is open to artists of all disciplines whose project proposals include sound as a major component. Such projects might include recording a music CD, producing radio programs, oral histories, audio literature, sound for a gallery installation or public art project, film, music and sound design for dance and theater, digital media work, etc. Completed projects are publicly presented at a Jack Straw artist event. 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. Artists’ new work is presented in our gallery in the following year.

The Jack Straw Writers Program was established in 1997, and to date, the program has included more than 250 writers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond who represent a diverse range of literary genres. 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. Each year an invited curator selects the participating writers from a large pool of applicants based foremost on artistic excellence.  The Writers Program requires participants to be on-site at Jack Straw Cultural Center for a number of activities, such as an introductory orientation, workshops for microphone/voice technique and live performance, in-studio interview session with the program curator, and live readings. 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. Work appearing in the Jack Straw Writers Anthology may not be previously published material, and any subsequent publication of this work must acknowledge the Jack Straw Writers Program.

This position of visiting artist-in-residence is offered every other academic year.

A large skylight studio for the exclusive use of the successful candidate is provided to support the artist’s work and to foster a strong on-campus presence. Competitive salary, materials budget, and benefits are provided. One studio course of the artist’s conception and design is to be taught each semester. An artist’s open studio one day each semester and participation in studio thesis critiques are expected, and active engagement with the broader college community is encouraged. In the spring semester, an exhibition of the artist’s work will be mounted in the department’s Eli Marsh Gallery.

About: Founded in 2017, Artist Grant is a new venture that aims to support and fund artists.

To that end, our charitable organization funds the efforts of artists to continue their important work and contributions to society. We provide a modest competitive grant of $500 to one artist every quarter.

We have no sponsors but are a small group of individuals using our own personal wealth, time, energy, and efforts to fulfill Artist Grant’s mission. The team functions as the grant selection jury. We come from different creative backgrounds, so we do not have artistic style or media preferences. We’re interested in and will consider applications from all visual artists.
