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

More than eighty artists have created installations for Eastern State Penitentiary’s cellblocks and yards. Some of these installations were among the most successful programming the site has presented, and brought perspectives and approaches that would not have been possible in traditional historic site programming.

We seek installations that will explore Eastern State Penitentiary’s history, and evoke a broad range of emotions. We seek installations that will make connections between the complex history of this building and today’s criminal justice system and corrections policies.

We want to humanize these difficult subjects with personal stories and distinct points of view. We want to hear new voices—voices that might emphasize the political, or humorous, or bluntly personal. We want our visitors to be challenged with provocative questions, and we’re prepared to face some provocative questions ourselves.

In short, we seek memorable, thought-provoking additions to our public programming, combined with true excellence in artistic practice. If our definition of this program seems broad, it’s because we’re open to approaches that we haven’t yet imagined.

Surprise us.

Description

From February 1 - March 1, 2018 apexart is accepting proposals for its International Open Call for exhibitions. Three winning proposals will be presented as part of apexart’s 2018-19 exhibition season, and can take place anywhere in the world, except for New York City. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit proposals online.

• The Submission Process: Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images may be included within the application - just describe the exhibition you want to create and why. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and must be submitted in English, and submitters must have visited the proposed exhibition location previously. This year’s submission form also requires the listing of three potential artists, though this list will not be reviewed by the jury. Proposals are judged only by their content and the organizer’s ability to communicate, rather than by familiar names or past accomplishments.

• The Selection Process: An international jury, composed of more than 150 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, rates the proposals. Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows many jurors to individually review a subset of proposals. Submissions are made anonymous and randomized for juror review, and apexart does not influence the results of the jury. The organizers of the three highest-ranked proposals each receive an honorarium and funding for the selected exhibition proposal, and work closely with the apexart team to turn their idea into an apexart exhibition.

How to Apply

Submit a written exhibition proposal of 500 words or less, at apexart.org/opencalls.php by March 1, 2018.

Description

The ERB Emerging Visions Filmmaker Award is meant to encourage the growth and development of women artists and technicians traditionally underrepresented in the film and digital industry. In particular, through this award we seek to foster connections between these young creators and the artists and writers working on our books in ways that build confidence, skills, and provide a realistic glimpse of how working artists create and collaborate (and have day jobs).

In 2018, we are seeking women and women-identified filmmakers or digital artists in Washington State high schools or colleges to create a short film in collaboration with Seattle writers J.W. Marshall and Christine Deavel for their forthcoming play, Vicinity/Memoryall.
The play follows two characters in search of a memorial as they navigate the drastically changing landscape of their booming city. The memorial they seek marks the site of the fatal shooting of a Native American man by a police officer. During their efforts, they are misdirected to two other memorials for victims of violence, leading them to wrestle with the questions of why we memorialize, as well as who and how we memorialize (or forget), particularly in the face of pervasiveness violence. At all three memorials, they must decide how to physically respond to the sites, in one case singing a song, in the next creating a simple dance, and in the last by performing a bold and unsettling act. Threaded throughout the play are haunting and lyrical monologues by a character who acts as a bridge between the audience and the story. Vicinty/Memoryall is an approximately 80-minute play requiring few props, and a relatively simple setting. In addition to the three main characters are four smaller supporting roles.

Award Amount: $500
NEW DEADLINES:
DEADLINE: FEBURARY 15.
AWARD ANNOUNCED: MARCH 1
FILM COMPLETED: SEPTEMBER 15

PLEASE NOTE, we are NOT interested in a film that describes or excerpts the play or includes interviews with its authors. We want to see a creative interpretation of some of the issues raised by the play; for example — What does it mean to memorialize? How are spontaneous memorials such as those found on a roadside different from civic memorials? Why do some deaths get a half-masted flag while others do not? What should we do at a memorial? How long should a memorial last? How do we live in a world of daily horrors where memorials are constantly being made? How would you want to be memorialized? How would you memorialize someone taken from you?

How to Apply

To be considered for this award, please submit no more than three links to previous videos or digital experiences of which you have been the primary creator. Read the above description of the play carefully, then write a paragraph or two on your interest in the project and your ideas for a short film or digital experience. Please limit yourself to no more than 500 words and/or five story boards.

Mural design at the corner of 32nd Ave SW and SW Holden St

More Info

Jenny Rose Ryan

friendsofroxhill@gmail.com

Deadline to Apply

3/2/2018

Description

The Project
Friends of Roxhill Elementary has received a Neighborhood Matching Fund grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods that includes funding for a mural. We are seeking an artist to create an original small mural at the corner of Holden and 32nd Ave SW, with potential to extend southward along the wall that runs the length of the property on 32nd.

This opportunity is open to established artists living in the Seattle/Northwest area. The application deadline is March 1, 2018, with interviews to follow and the final artist selected by April 1, 2018. The selected artist is to complete the mural in summer of 2018. This will be a community-partnered project working with students and community members for inspiration, with installation to take place (also with community assistance) when the weather is suitable.

Roxhill Elementary is moving in fall 2018 to a renovated E.C. Hughes building at 32nd and Kenyon in Southwestern West Seattle. We are using the bulk of the grant to add a playground.

The Award
A maximum of $10,000 Commission for the artist selected to realize his/her work, which must include materials and permits, if required.

Project Intent
The neighborhood near E.C. Hughes -- specifically along 35th Ave SW between Webster and Kenyon – is changing. It’s becoming more of a connected, human-scale neighborhood, with multimodal transportation that goes beyond people riding along in cars. Activating the space along Holden as it nears the intersection with 35th, as this project would do, can help create an open, inviting sense of identity. Roxhill is a multi-cultural school and community and the artist must reflect that aspect in his/her work.

Through this project, we also want to build a long-range vision for all our kids' successes. Working together to create a mural that reflects our hopes, dreams and visions for the future can help connect each of us to each other. We will build relationships both within our school and outside our school through connections with our new E.C. Hughes neighbors and other PTAs and collaborative organizations, as well as through coalition building with West Seattle neighborhood groups and media. It is imperative the selected artist view the project as a collaborative one, and focus on building connections in the way the mural is planned and painted. It will be a very public showpiece that reflects and celebrates our multicultural school and community at large.

Information about the site
The site is a concrete retaining wall at the corner of 32nd Avenue Southwest and Southwest Holden St., approximately 200 square feet (and beyond). Foot traffic is increasing over time as density increases and development occurs, and there is interest from neighbors across the street to see the entire wall improved, which is something we'd like to tackle over time. We see the corner mural as a starting point. The mural will be subject to SDOT and Seattle Public Schools regulations and approval.

Eligibility
This call to artists is open to professional artists living in the Seattle/Washington state area. Only professionals with reviewable portfolios are eligible to apply. The selecting committee will consider artistic diversity as a factor in the selecting process.
The selected artist will work with the school, the neighborhood, greater community, the City of Seattle and Seattle Public Schools to create a durable, site-specific mural. Applicants who wish to apply should have experience working with a public process, in public settings and the artwork must reflect the project intent as stated.
The artist will be required to provide liability insurance and must sign a VARA waiver while working on the site. They should also love to work with children and diverse communities (and submit to a background check).

How to Apply

How to apply
Artists interested must prepare and submit the following:
• Proposed artwork concept for mural
• Letter of interest- 1 page maximum why you are interested in the project
• Artist statement
• Current resume
• a list of 3 references

Work Samples
• A minimum of 8 digital images
• Artist may include up to 3 selections of support materials such as articles, web links and other related information

Materials must be received by 5 p.m. March 1, 2018. Please email to: Friends of Roxhill Elementary Mural Committee: friendsofroxhill@gmail.com.

Final artist selection
Friends of Roxhill Elementary will review submittals, conduct interviews of our top two or three finalists and make a selection by April 1, 2018. Then, the selected artist will work with our community, conducting surveys, meetings, voting, and/or other methods we decide will work to serve our community’s hopes and dreams for the mural. Through this process, we will develop draft mural concepts, revise the drafts based on community feedback, and develop a final design. The mural will be painted in June, July and August 2018 depending on weather. Friends of Roxhill will host a final playground and mural unveiling party in August 2018, inviting the community and media to the celebration.

This is a community-driven project and artists must be able to work with the community in all aspects of design and execution. Part of the selection process will involve assessing how well each candidate understands and would do in this type of creative process.

Criteria for selection
• Initial proposal that reflects intent
• A body of work reflecting artistic excellence
• Experience working in public settings
• Experience installing permanent artwork suitable for outdoors with knowledge of future conservation
• References

Organization
Tateuchi Center is the result of decades of hard work, faith, and investment in creating a home for the performing arts in Bellevue, Washington. There have been landmark steps along the way, including endorsement by the Bellevue City Council and Arts Commission in 2002 and incorporation of Performing Arts Center Eastside in 2003. That same year, the Kemper Freeman family donated the building site in the heart of downtown Bellevue, valued at $20 million. Significant gifts followed, including $6 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to pay for design and engineering consulting costs and a $25 million naming gift from the Tateuchi Foundation in 2010. The City of Bellevue pledged $20 million in 2015. Now, at more than 65 percent towards the $195 million campaign goal, ground-breaking is scheduled in September 2018, with an opening anticipated in the fall of 2021.

With a mission to transform lives and enrich the community by presenting artistic, cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences of the highest quality to all within its reach, Tateuchi Center is committed to expanding arts education opportunities. It is also dedicated to providing an Eastside performance base for large and small regional arts organizations across a broad range of genres, attracting national and international artists to its stages.

Description

Greetings Writer!
PageBoy Magazine is now accepting submissions for our upcoming (tenth!) issue. We are following our Writers on Writers issue with an issue devoted exclusively to 17 word poems, or "17s" (see below).

A word on the form:

- 17s are an old form, invented at Harry's Bar on 15th Ave E in Seattle during the fall of 2016.
- 17s consist simply of 17 words, that is their ONLY constraint.
- That said, 17s rely heavily on / seek to encourage Keats' idea of Negative Capability, when one is "capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason."
- 17s are meant to wrest language back into the imagination and out of the mundane, "to get that intensity back into the language." (Gertrude Stein)

A few (further) quotes that were instrumental during the gestation period of the 17s:

"a word is a bottomless pit"
-Lyn Hejinian

"I sometimes think that Leaves of Grass is only a language experiment - that is, an attempt to give spirit, the body, the man, new potentialities of speech."
-Walt Whitman

"write everything / the oracle said"
-Robert Kelly

"I have news for you ... verse has been tampered with!"
-Stephane Mallarme

"The extraordinary nature of language is that it attaches to the prior, to the before one, and to the after one."
-Robin Blaser

"It is my duty to be attentive, I am needed by things as the sky must be above the earth."
-Frank O'hara

"I do not use the language, I interact with it."
-Rosemarie Waldrop

"fragments are our wholes"
-Clark Coolidge

How to Apply

Please send 5-10 of your best works in prose or poetry - as long as each is exactly and only 17 words short - to pageboymagazine@hotmail.com by March 15, 2018. We are open to any style, any voice, as long as it "works," so do whatever you like with the form. We're interested to see what you come up with!

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.

July 15-July 29

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.

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.

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.
