The Oregon Arts Summit is our day together, once each year, when wise veterans and emerging leaders sit down side-by-side, rub elbows, learn from one another and strengthen our statewide community.
Oregon Arts Commission Sets August 15 deadline for Applications for Career Opportunity Grants to Artists
The Oregon Arts Commission (OAC) has set a deadline of August 15, 2012 for the first of three deadlines for Career Opportunity Grants. Additional resources from The Ford Family Foundation are available to mid-career visual artists in this cycle.
Career opportunity grants support Oregon artists who have identified critical opportunities to advance their careers through the development of artistic, or business and professional skills.
Artists may apply for funding to show in national or international exhibits, to participate in conferences, workshops or residencies, or to explore other ways to expand their knowledge and business base. Up to $1,500 may be requested. Emerging and established artists practicing all disciplines are eligible; students and hobbyists are not.
The Ford Family Foundation Opportunity Grants target full-time visual artists in the 30 and over age group. Awards range from $1,500 to $7,500. Artists apply for The Ford Family Foundation funds in the same manner as the Career Opportunity grants; the applications are reviewed in a single combined process.
“We are very pleased to offer this important support to Oregon artists in partnership with The Ford Family Foundation,” said OAC Executive Director Chris D’Arcy. “The Career Opportunity grants have enabled artists to take designs into the commercial marketplace; allowed others to travel to present their work at international fairs and festivals, and provided for the professional recording of new music. These artists are an important part of Oregon’s creative economy.”
Career Opportunity Grants are competitive. Past recipients include dancers/choreographers Linda Austin and Meshi Chavez; visual artists Gabe Flores and Damien Gilley; book artist and Oregon College of Art & Craft faculty Barbara Tetenbaum (visual arts), and jazz legend Thara Memory, for career advancement opportunities in places as far-ranging as Nepal, Serbia and Poland.
Grant applications are evaluated according to the following three criteria:
Artistic Merit 50%: quality of work samples, background and experience as demonstrated by resume, samples and other supporting materials.
Career Impact 45%: uniqueness of the opportunity, quality of the proposed event, or a clearly defined need for the artistic or business skill proposed to be developed.
Budget 5%: Costs proportional to proposed activity, purpose for which grant funds will be used.
Guidelines and access to the on-line grant application are available at http://oregon.culturegrants.org/navigation/links/page/grants-to-individuals.
Hudson Valley Seed Library Sets July 31, 2012, Deadline for the “Art of the Heirloom” Exhibition
Great news! Horticulture Magazine: The Art and Science of Smart Gardening, has now partnered with us on the Art of the Heirloom exhibition! This year's show is already starting to fill up with an inspiring diversity of garden related art. The magazine will be helping with the call for art in the coming weeks.
Although the deadline for submissions is July 31st, if the show fills before then we will not be able to accept more work. If you are interested in having your work seen by 20,000+ people as well as major media, now is the time to submit your entry.
Are you an artist inspired by heirloom gardens? Gardens are unique expressions of a gardener's hand and heirloom varieties are a reflection of the diversity of gardener's sensibilities, palate, and notions of beauty.
The Art of the Heirloom is a juried exhibition of artist's interpretations and contemplations of heirloom seeds and the cultural importance of preserving our collective garden heritage.
We seek works of art that are inspired by heirloom gardening. Works in all media and formats will be considered excluding still photography. Works may be illustrative, sculptural, abstract, concrete, or conceptual interpretations of one of four categories. One prize will be awarded in each category plus a Gardener's Choice Award voted on by visitors to the Expo.
The National Heirloom Expo is attended by over 25,000 visitors and this year's winning works of art will be featured in Heirloom Gardener Magazine.
Call for Heirloom Art
Submissions Due: July 31st 2013 OR WHEN SHOW IS FULL.
