Kirkland Arts Center is proud to present our second open call juried exhibition, Fracture. This years Jurors are Shayla M. Alarie and Sarra Scherb of Quartz Projects. Applicants from across the country and the world are welcome to apply with artwork pertaining to the theme of Fracture. The entry fee is $20 and all mediums will be accepted for consideration, including, but not limited to, sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, printmaking, and video. Cash awards will be given for Juror’s Choice and People’s Choice.
The Kirkland Arts Center was founded in 1962 and features rotating exhibitions and classes in a variety of mediums and for all ages and skill levels. Fracture is the third exhibition in our 2019 cycle around the intersection of Art and Healing.
Exhibition Statement:
A crack, a break, a severance.
A distance between, a misalignment.
A sudden impact, or a slow widening; a quick trauma, or a gradual erosion.
Fractures occur everywhere: in a body, to a psyche, within an identity, between individuals. A fracture can be the site of trauma and breakage, the echoes of which reverberate long after impact. Or, it can represent a thrilling change that shakes a placid surface, laying ground for a new beginning. Sometimes fractures are the clean break we need to move on, a necessary catalyst for growth and transformation. The pain from such a fissure can harrow or hallow: it can be embraced as a sign that we have survived and are on the way to healing, or it can be dwelt in and rued bitterly. Some fractures can heal and knit, mending what was sundered, bridging the gap. Or, they can be places weakened forever: landscape altered beyond recognition. Whatever the cause, and whether or not it is welcome, a fracture is a shock—and a sign that nothing will ever be quite the same.
About the Jurors:
SARRA SCHERB is a gallerist, curator, designer, freelance writer and journalist who has been based in Seattle for fifteen years. She has worked with art galleries, museums, publications, and individual artists across the Northwest to publicize artwork and exhibitions, develop and curate shows, and cover the arts scene. She holds an MA in Museology.
SHAYLA M. ALARIE is an historian, teacher, writer and researcher. She has worked extensively in galleries and in higher education with a passion for teaching and for helping artists and art historians refine their craft and further their careers. Alarie holds an MA in art history and is currently an adjunct professor at Seattle University.
Together as Quartz Projects, Scherb and Alarie have joined forces to collaborate on curation, writing and arts education. Based out of Seattle, they are focused on promoting the arts, crafting meaningful and timely exhibitions, and sharing their knowledge with artists through lectures and workshops. They are particularly invested in advocating for queer, minority and women artists.

Description

Exhibition Statement:

A crack, a break, a severance.

A distance between, a misalignment.

A sudden impact, or a slow widening; a quick trauma, or a gradual erosion.

Fractures occur everywhere: in a body, to a psyche, within an identity, between individuals. A fracture can be the site of trauma and breakage, the echoes of which reverberate long after impact. Or, it can represent a thrilling change that shakes a placid surface, laying ground for a new beginning. Sometimes fractures are the clean break we need to move on, a necessary catalyst for growth and transformation. The pain from such a fissure can harrow or hallow: it can be embraced as a sign that we have survived and are on the way to healing, or it can be dwelt in and rued bitterly. Some fractures can heal and knit, mending what was sundered, bridging the gap. Or, they can be places weakened forever: landscape altered beyond recognition. Whatever the cause, and whether or not it is welcome, a fracture is a shock--and a sign that nothing will ever be quite the same.

About the Jurors:

SARRA SCHERB is a gallerist, curator, designer, freelance writer and journalist who has been based in Seattle for fifteen years. She has worked with art galleries, museums, publications, and individual artists across the Northwest to publicize artwork and exhibitions, develop and curate shows, and cover the arts scene. She holds an MA in Museology.

SHAYLA M. ALARIE is an historian, teacher, writer and researcher. She has worked extensively in galleries and in higher education with a passion for teaching and for helping artists and art historians refine their craft and further their careers. Alarie holds an MA in art history and is currently an adjunct professor at Seattle University.

Together as Quartz Projects, Scherb and Alarie have joined forces to collaborate on curation, writing and arts education. Based out of Seattle, they are focused on promoting the arts, crafting meaningful and timely exhibitions, and sharing their knowledge with artists through lectures and workshops. They are particularly invested in advocating for queer, minority and women artists.

How to Apply

The entry fee is $20 and all mediums will be accepted for consideration, including, but not limited to, sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, printmaking, and video. Cash awards will be given for Juror's Choice and People's Choice.

Acceptance emails sent to artists: By May 17th, 2019
Exhibition Dates: June 25 - August 3, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, June 28, 2019, 6-8 PM
Artwork Arrival: By June 18, 2019
Artwork Pick Up: August 4 - 7, 2019

Kirkland Arts Center provides insurance for all artwork while exhibited at the KAC Gallery, but does not cover shipping costs or shipping insurance. Artwork must be delivered to KAC by the artist or through a mail carrier such as FedEx or DHL. All shipping costs are the responsibility of the artist.

Exhibited artwork does not have to be for sale, but insurance values are required on all received artwork. KAC takes a 40% commission on all artwork sold.

Description

Project Intent

The DAISY Awards are given to outstanding registered nurses in more than 200 hospitals across the United States. The award originated at SCCA and is a highly celebrated recognition that should be visible and appreciated by all who come through SCCA’s clinic doors, as well as add to our healing environment. Creating a beautiful artistic display that honors SCCA’s extraordinary nurses is the main goal and purpose of this project.
This artistic display will be located in the clinic building alongside a DAISY Award ballot box for patients (target audience) to submit nominations. However, family members, nurses, physicians, other clinicians and staff — anyone who experiences or observes extraordinary and compassionate care being provided by a nurse — may also submit a nomination into the ballot box. Nominations can be submitted year-round for awards, which are given out on a quarterly and yearly basis for departmental teams. Therefore, the wall needs to be sustainable in function and designed for growth.

The Award
A maximum of $8,000 commission for the artist(s) selected to develop, create and implement a work of art that incorporates recipients’ names.

Important Note:
Due to the artistic display location in the clinic, to ensure patient safety, the material medium and display must be safe and non-organic to uphold current infection prevention standards.

• Infection Prevention Risks: All SCCA patients must be considered immune-compromised and as SCCA we have a duty to protect patients while they are in our hospital-licensed spaces. Therefore, the following are not allowed in clinic spaces:
- Natural or “live” trees/decorations, use of straw, hay, vines, leaves, gauze, or any live or died plants
- Any decorations or materials that attracts and retains dust and/or cannot be cleaned
- Any decorations or materials with a scent

How to Apply

How to Apply:
Artists interested in this project must prepare and submit the following:
1. A letter of interest, no more than one page in length, that explains your interest in the RFP. Please include your name and contact information and a description of your work.
2. Please submit sample photos of your work and/or a portfolio (website).
3. Current resume.
4. If interested, the SCCA Marketing team will reach out to you for an in-person interview and determine if your style and qualifications meet their needs. During the interview SCCA Marketing team will ask for your initial thoughts/ideas of how this project could be executed.
5. At the time of the interview please bring a list of at least three professional references familiar with your work and working methods. The list must include full names and telephone numbers.

Send application to: Elsa Ferguson, EKferguson@Seattlecca.org

Artist Selection process:
SCCA Marketing team will review all submissions and select an artist to create an original, on-site art display, honoring DAISY award winners. The team will ask the artist to come in-person to interview (be ready to talk through or bring specific ideas for how to execute this project). The final commission will be awarded by April 15, 2019. Artist will be invited for their concept grand reveal during Nurses Week, May 6-10 (exact date still to be determined). This artistic wall display will be created and installed at SCCA South Lake Union clinic by June 7, 2019.
1. Selected candidates will be asked to create and propose 2-3 design concepts to present to an SCCA review committee March 25 – 29.
2. Decision by the review committee will be made by April 15.

• Working with the curatorial and educational staff, the intern will research a work in the museum’s permanent collection, develop a community tour about the work, and facilitate a talk about the issues the work addresses.
• Working with the technology team to develop digital content for specific audiences
• Working with the communications team to refine outreach strategies and contribute to the design of marketing materials.

Duties & Responsibilities
1. Support the home department. Projects may include: community partnership &engagement, program support, development (both program and fundraising) and administrative support.

5. Develop content and perform research.
6. Attend Enrichment Sessions and other programs for interns.

Description

Organization Overview:
Since 1987, Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) has championed the literary arts by inspiring and engaging readers and writers of all generations across the greater Puget Sound region, providing opportunities to learn from the most compelling writers and cultural thinkers of our day. We envision a future in which imaginative acts such as reading, writing, and creative thinking are indispensable to a curious, engaged, democratic society. With over 20 years of service to the community, our Writers in the Schools (WITS) program serves over 6,000 public school students annually, connecting them to the best local writing talent for extended creative writing residencies. WITS provides students the opportunity to express their authentic writing and performance voices in publications and on SAL stages. Through WITS, students become authors of their own lives. We are a 10-person team with an annual budget around $3M and a 21-member board of directors. Along with the WITS program, SAL presents approximately 30 public events per year which reach over 30,000 people.

SAL is an equal opportunity employer. Individuals from all cultures and communities are encouraged to apply. SAL strives to create a diverse and welcoming workplace. We believe that having a board of directors, staff, interns, and volunteers with diverse backgrounds enables us to better meet our mission and we strongly encourage applications from people of color and other historically underrepresented and marginalized groups.
