Manage your award

Want to get the word out about your arts or cultural event or exhibit? Here are some tips on sending out information to the public and local media.

Step 1. Gather all the details: who, what, where, when and why.

Step 2. Gather graphics for publicity. Gather photos, create a logo if necessary, work with a designer on the look and any printed materials.

Step 3. Write a press release and/or prepare a press kit and send to the media.


The Press Release

Press releases inform the media about your event and can inspire the media to publish a calendar listing or even cover the event. Click here for a description and example of the anatomy of a press release.

  • Try to let the media know what makes your event unique or relevant.
  • Be genuine. Exaggeration or inaccuracy will only hurt your chances of being a reliable media source. The more a press release reads like an actual news article, the better. Many smaller publications love releases they can print verbatim.
  • Press releases should look professional and be easy to read. Type double-spaced.
  • Make sure the organization's name, address, website and contact information is visible.
  • Include the media contact's name, direct phone line and e-mail address near the top of the first page.
  • Include a "pull date" (the last date of the event) near the top of the first page.
  • Include a headline that summarizes the event and invites people to read the details.
  • All the most pertinent information should be included in the first paragraph - the five W's. Who is presenting what, where and when? Why should people attend? Include information on how people can attend or buy tickets, locations of ticket venues or website, e-mail and/or box office phone-line information.
  • Additional paragraphs can provide more descriptive information about the event, artists involved and quotes.
  • Use your mission statement or general description of the organization at the end of the press release.
  • If the press release is longer than one page, write "-More-" at the bottom of each page. At the end of the last page, include "# # #" to indicate the end of the release.

The Press Kit

Press kits provide useful background information for members of the press writing previews or reviews of your arts or cultural event. A press kit should be organized in a folder and generally includes:

1) Organization Information (front to back on the left side of the folder)

  • Mission statement
  • Brief organizational history
  • Organizational brochure
  • Feature articles on the organization or lead staff
  • Board list
  • Business card for media contact

2) Specific Event Information (front to back on the right side of the folder)

  • Press release for the event
  • Photos or artwork related to the event
  • Event postcard or flyer
  • Event program
  • Artists' bios, if not in the program
  • Preview articles about the event

Note: Do not include reviews of the event or previous events in the press packet. Most reviewers do not want to be influenced by the opinions of others.


Online calendars

There are numerous websites with online events calendars to use to publicize your event. Here are few:


Daily and weekly papers

Send your press releases to local newspapers. Here are some of the dailies and weekly papers to begin with.


Neighborhood newspapers


Radio

Most radio stations accept a written public service announcement (PSA). Some will take a pre-recorded PSA. Check the website of the radio station you think best matches your audience. Many stations belong to the Puget Sound Broadcasters Association or Washington State Association of Broadcasters . Both organizations list links to their members.


Television

Seattle Channel , the city's municipal television channel, is committed to covering local arts and culture. Art Zone with Nancy Guppy on Seattle channel specifically covers the local art scene.

Description

Mineral School is an artists residency located in a former 1947 elementary school near Mt. Rainier, in Mineral, Washington. During summer 2018, we're offering three two-week residency periods to 8 writers of poetry and prose and 4 visual artists, providing accepted applicants with space and time to create new work without the interruptions of normal life and with the bonus of healthy meals prepared by culinary volunteers using locally-grown organic food whenever possible. During September 2018, we'll offer a one-week residency to 4 writers who are parents of children under 18.

Each resident will live in an 800-square foot former classroom that offers peekaboo views of Mineral Lake and Mt. Rainier, and that will double as their writing studio, with desk and chair, lighting, bookcase, and lots of chalkboards. Visual artist residents will be offered space to work outside of their classrooms (unless they wish to work in their medium in the room where they sleep). The school building has bathrooms with showers. Residents are served all meals and snacks daily and have the opportunity to share work with the public. Mineral features a swimmable fishing lake and boat rentals, a bar, a bed and breakfast, a general store, churches, a post office, and more deer than people. It's 25 minutes by car to Mt. Rainier National Park.

Visiting authors and artists: During each two-week residency, resident alumnae will visit and present work and bring with them a special guest artist they've chosen to introduce to Mineral. Additionally, during June's residency there will be a free musical event onsite on the last night, Saturday, June 30, by the Portland band Swimfish.

Resident presentations: If they wish, residents can share with one another and the public at our monthly residents' "show and tell" held during residency. These presentations are held after dinner in our library/multi-purpose room.
We are accepting applications from December 15, 2017, through February 15, 2018, (Midnight, EST) for the 2018 residencies. Notification will be given at least two months before the residency period for which you've applied.

Residency sessions are held during the following time periods.

Two-week residency periods for 2018:

June 17-July 1

July 15-July 29

August 19-September 2

One-week parents' residency

September 15-September 23

TWO-WEEK FELLOWSHIP OPTIONS

We're pleased to offer five funded two-week residencies in 2018.

Three June Dodge Writing Fellows attend for free and receive travel assistance from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, in addition to room and board, visits by presenting authors, and opportunities to share work publicly. These fellowships are open to writers from the Pacific Northwest (AK, ID, MT, OR, WA) and Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon).

The Erin Donovan Writing Fellowship (August 2018) is open to an emerging woman writer of poetry or prose living in Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, or Washington, who is at least 40 years old, and whose writing expresses both wit and compassion. This fellowship covers the residency fee (room and board, guest presenters, options to present) for August 2018 and includes a travel reimbursement of up to $175 (for OR/WA residents) or up to $400 (for MA/NY residents). This fellowship is funded by family and friends of Erin Donovan, an Oregon fiction writer, teacher, and outdoors woman who passed away in 2015.

The Mona Lisa Roberts Visual Arts Fellowship is open to a visual artist (graphic novelist/comics artist, painter, photographer, fabric artist, paper artist, etc.) who self-identifies as LGBTQ and lives in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington) or the provinces of western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon). This fellowship funds a two-week residency any month and transit from Seattle, Portland, or points between.

The continued movement of people to the Pacific Northwest has intensified opposing political ideas that were once unfamiliar to the region. While populations clash over the pros and cons of density, artEAST seeks to feature art that illuminates the individual self in urban spaces. For this show we are asking artists to submit both 2-D and 3-D visual works of any medium and style that subverts historically urban-related visual media. This includes but is not limited to graffiti, advertising, and signs. Situated at the edge of many of Puget Sound’s urban centers, artEAST serves both an urban and suburban population and expects the art in this show to incite conversations about the role art itself plays in an area that is being aggressively urbanized.

We have an opportunity for artists who are looking to rent a small art gallery (20' container space) to showcase their artwork. We will provide the pop up container that can be delivered and picked up where ever they wish and rent the space from a few days to 2 weeks. We believe, as artists ourselves, that space in and around Seattle is expensive and difficult to find an appropriate space of which to showcase art. We feel like with the limited amount of space that a POP up art space would work perfectly for artists that wish to promote and provide good exposure.

How to Apply

We have 'a unique proposal with a cultural aspect' as said by Carol with Public Space Management-SDOT. She advised us to present to you.

We wish to present this to dept, of Arts and Culture, to see if we can work together in developing this idea and applying this to an appropriate art area that is currently being used for artists or for developing a space in which we could start. I understand that Kings Street Station and Plaza are possible opportunities for us. Please advise if we can collaborate on this idea.

Description

The 2018 Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts is proud to present The Special Exhibit - ‘Layers: The Evolving Art of 3D Printing’, an exhibition merging art, technology and science.

In this exhibition, curators Briana Thornton and Ben Dye are working with The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts to create a public space displaying artworks by multidisciplinary creatives, designers, artists and engineers. The artists featured create works of art using 3D printing as a means of product or reference. The goal of the curators is to facilitate a space where 3D printed art can have a voice among Fine Art.

Layers: The Evolving Art of 3D Printing creates a free and unique experience where audiences can engage with the artistic side of 3D printing and advanced art-making technologies. Artists are inherently curious and the introduction of consumer 3D technology has allowed creatives to explore the uncharted medium of 3D printing. Curators Ben and Briana believe that this medium deserves a place in the world of fine art. They are calling on artists to submit work created by means of 3D printers and/or 3D programs. This can include: sculptures, jewelry, fashion/wearable objects, moving images and animations, and unique objects/installations.

The challenge and goal of the curators is as follows: Art inherently has soul. An artist who creates through analogue means creates work that is a reflection of oneself, society, or at times is an abstract concept that becomes tangible through their creation. Technology and computers are inherently ‘soulless’ or lack depth further than determinable algorithms and mathematics. The goal of this exhibition is to show, argue and conclude that art created via technology can still have depth and meaning that originates from the deliberate intention of the artists.

ELIGIBILITY
Submissions are encouraged from artists working with 3D printers. All work must be original and created within the last three years.

Works Eligible
● Unique fine art objects (object(s) must be original or a series of up to 5 limited editions).
● Artworks must be original designs developed by the applying artist.
● Solo artists or group makers may apply.
● All submitted pieces must be for sale and available for sale during the Festival.
● Any material that can be printed with a 3D Printer is acceptable.
● Artwork must be ready to be displayed on a pedestal. If artwork is to be adhered to wall or hung, it must come ready to hang or install and with all necessary installation materials.
o NOTE: Artwork will be displayed on shelves or pedestals.

Entries
● A maximum of three works may be submitted per artist.
● Entries must be received no later than the date listed on the calendar below. The Special Exhibit reserves the right to decline any accepted artwork upon delivery if the condition or quality is other than represented in the electronic entry.

Calendar
● Artist application available online: 11/1/2017
● Application deadline: 1/28/2018, 11:59pm
● Jury results emailed to artists: 2/28/2018
● Festival hours:
○ Friday & Saturday, June 22 & 23, 2018, 10:00am – 9:00pm

Description

Applications for the 2018 Art in the Park juried show are now available. Our summer exhibition is guided by the incredible beauty and rich history of the Pacific Northwest. We promote and showcase the work of regionally and nationally recognized makers in a broadly inclusive venue. This year we are exploring an exciting and rigorously contemporary approach to the Arts and Crafts Movement aesthetic.

Art in the Park, located in George Rogers Park, is an outdoor booth show open to artists of all persuasions who produce original, hand-made, fine art and craftsmanship, and we welcome in particular contemporary makers who embody the best of the Arts and Crafts movement aesthetic.

Categories
Artists may apply in these categories:
● New Media: New media art is usually defined as a genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, computer robotics, 3D printing, and art as biotechnology. Artists and makers working under this category are highly encouraged to submit electronic editions of new media work to exhibit and sell to the public in a boutique-style booth display.
● Emerging Artist: We welcome those artists who show significant potential, but have yet to be significantly recognized in their professions. Typically, this applies to a young artist just out of school, but we also welcome people of all ages who are in the very beginning of their careers as artists.
● 3D Mixed Media: Work that combines multiple materials to form an object intended as a work of art. This category includes the use of found objects, use of recycled materials, and assemblage to create new forms.
● Ceramics: Original functional or non-functional works created by the artist from clay, porcelain, stoneware, and/or earthenware. We welcome ceramics artists whose work may challenge the assertion of a functional and non-functional relationship. Not permitted: machine-made or mass-produced work.
● Digital 2D Art: Original work for which the image, or the manipulation of other source material, was created by the artist using a computer. All work must be in limited editions, signed and numbered on archival-quality materials. Not permitted: Traditional photography. Even if taken through the digital process, it must be entered under Photography.
● Drawing: Original compositions hand-drawn by the artist using pen, pencil, charcoal, pastel, ink, wax, crayon, etc.
● Fiber-Decorative: Decorative works handcrafted by the artist from natural and synthetic fiber. Fiber includes basketry, embroidery, weaving, tapestry, papermaking, leather, straw, and fabric. Plastic fiber is also permitted under this category. Not permitted: mass or factory-produced work.
● Fiber-Wearable: Clothing and fashion designers are highly encouraged to apply. Wearables intended as objects of utility, beauty, and art. Not permitted: mass or factory-produced work.
● Glass: Original functional or decorative works that have been handcrafted by the artist by glass blowing, fusing, molding, casting, or kiln forming. Works may be etched or engraved and be of any size. Not permitted: any form of mass-produced work.
● Jewelry: All jewelry must be designed and handcrafted by the artist. This may include jewelry that is made primarily from metals, gems, stones, precious metal clay (PMC), flame-worked beads, clay, wood, fiber, etc. that is made by the artist. All jewelry displayed at the show must have been juried in the Jewelry category. A maximum of 15% of a piece may consist of commercial findings. Jewelers must label their PMC jewelry as such. Not permitted: commercial components (e.g., beads, glass, gems, pearls, metal, or other elements not made by the artist) that are strung or assembled and/or twisted on wire, with no substantial work done by the artist. Commercial casts, molds, mass production, or production studio work is not permitted.
● Functional Metalwork: Functional, non-sculptural work handcrafted from metals with the purpose of being used as a tool. This category includes tools of all persuasions such as knives, saws, shovels, and pitchforks. All sculptural metalwork should be submitted in the Sculpture category. Not permitted: production studio work.
● Painting: Original compositions that are created by the artist in oil, water-based media, and encaustic media. Painters whose work challenges those material assertions are also welcome to submit under this category.
● Photography: Original compositions created by photographic processes that begin with a camera lens. Prints must be made from the artist’s original negative or digital image and be processed by the artist or under his or her direct supervision. The photographic process (including digital alteration, hand-painting, or over-painting, etc.) must be displayed with the photograph. Prints must be signed, numbered, and dated in a limited edition. Prints must meet “archival quality” standards.
● Printmaking: Printed works for which the artist hand-manipulated the plates, stone, blocks, composite reliefs, or screens and which have been signed and numbered in a limited edition. Not permitted: photocopies, giclées, offset reproductions, and machine-produced images are not considered print originals. They are reproductions of the original print and must be labeled as such.
● Sculpture: Three-dimensional, stand-alone works incorporating materials that are carved, modeled, constructed, or cast. Media examples include metal, stone, ceramic, hand-built clay, blown glass, and wood. Sculpture that has a utilitarian purpose, like a fountain, are welcome to apply under this category. If recycled materials are used, they must be modified or used in a way that is different from their original function.
● Woodworking: Original functional or non-functional work that is hand-tooled, machine worked, turned, or carved primarily from wood by the artist. Painted and/or wood assemblages, which are primary pieces not created by the artist, should be entered in 3D Mixed Media.
● 2D Mixed Media: Work that combines more than one medium such as paint, collage, and ink to create original works of art with a one-sided orientation. In order for mixed media to accepted as such, the work should clearly be the product of different surface materials.
BUY/SELL, IMPORTED, OR PRODUCTION WORK IS NOT PERMITTED.

Description

Artifacts of a Journey is an exhibit of completed artworks documenting the process a work of art takes on the road to creation. The exhibit explores the changes we make to our original ideas while creating the physical object, and the byways and cul-de-sacs our minds take while getting there.

In response to the Festival’s Special Exhibit whose media is 3D printing, Artist’s Vision is asking our applicants to compare the process of information transfer that takes place in digital making with the process of thought and action that takes place in physical making. Art is a process, and in this exhibit that process is both the topic and the end result. Artists are invited to submit both traditional and non-traditional artworks that answer this question: what is your process of making and how does your art reflect this journey? Be creative, be playful, and dig into the rich inspiration that is your individual process.

*If your piece is of digital format (projection, film, time lapse, etc.) and requires electricity, please be specific in your submission of the power sources you will need.

ELIGIBILITY
Works Eligible
● Two dimensional work in any medium is acceptable as long as it is smaller than 6ʼ x 8ʼ and can be displayed on the wall using picture hanging rods.
● Three dimensional pieces are eligible as long as they are smaller than 6ʼ (height) x 4ʼ (width) x 2ʼ (depth) and the artist can provide the appropriate sculpture stand for their presentation.
● Wall-hung work can be hung framed or unframed and must include proper picture hanging hardware (no zigzag hardware). Please note: curators will not construct any hanging devices. Work must be delivered ready to hang on a wall.
● Digital works (Film, projections, time-lapse, etc) are accepted but the artist must explain the type of power source needed for their submission. All cords, connectors, etc., must be provided by the artist. All TV’s, monitors, projectors must be provided by the artist. Tables and stands for monitors or to support digital work must be stated by the artist when turning in their artist acceptance form. Because all artworks in the Festival must be for sale, all accepted digital artworks must clearly state what the sale of the artwork will include.

Entries
A maximum of 3 works may be submitted per artist. Entries must be received no later than the date listed on the Calendar below. The Artist’s Vision Juried Exhibit reserves the right to decline any accepted artwork upon delivery if the condition or quality is other than represented in the electronic entry.

Port Angeles Fine Arts Center PAFAC

Job Announcement
Gallery and Program Director

The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is currently seeking an innovative Gallery and Program Director to curate gallery shows and a five-acre art park, providing high quality art experiences and exhibits for travelling visitors and local community members alike. The Center is less than a mile from the Olympic National Park Visitor’s Center and approximately 18 miles away from Hurricane Ridge. The grounds are perched atop a wooded hill overlooking the City of Port Angeles, the Port of Port Angeles, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Vancouver Island, BC can be seen across the Strait, and Victoria, BC is just a ferry ride away.

The Center operates one indoor gallery with several exhibits annually. The surrounding art park in Webster’s Woods houses hundreds of outdoor sculptures in a wooded setting accessible to the public via a series of self-guided trails. The works of art installed can blend in with the forested surroundings, surprising viewers upon discovery, and sometimes provide stark contrasts to the natural setting. As they are exposed to the elements, the works are also in a constant state of change.

The Gallery and Program Director’s primary tasks will be generating engaging exhibitions and curating both the gallery and the art park. This person will reach out to the local community and connect with regional, national, and/or international artists and jurors. The PAFAC is run by a small staff, which includes an Executive Director, an Administrative Coordinator, volunteers and docents. The Gallery and Program Director oversees the exhibits and curation and will report directly to the Executive Director. The Executive Director works with the Board of Trustees and Board of Directors, the City, and other community organizations on a variety of administrative and organizational aspects of the Center’s operations, including business development, budgeting and human resources. Both Directors collaborate on event programming, marketing, and cultivating educational opportunities through both the exhibits and the art park. Consider this unparalleled curatorial opportunity at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, on the Olympic Peninsula, where the mountains meet the sea.
