Description

The Vestibule is accepting submissions for a group exhibition, EXTRA, September 12 - Nov 15th 2020.
We invite submissions of art and design that play with ornament, excess – anything extra. Is ornament equivalent to excess? Is ornament a formal quality or can ornament be a characteristic of process? Does ornament belong to post-modernism? Romanticism? Craft? We invite contemporary art and design that addresses these questions. Submission may be art, design, craft, industrial design, graphic design, installation or any combination of these.

The gallery will select work that accommodates and plays with the our unique format that lets visitors spend the night in the gallery. We encourage submissions of work that can be incorporated into the interior design of the Air BnB gallery – even work that can be used and touched by guests. This work will be for sale to guests and public visitors.
We encourage submissions from artists who identify as women, POC, Indigenous and LGBTQIA artists. The Vestibule has historically, though not exclusively, shown 90% women/LGBTQIA artists.
Application deadline is MONDAY APRIL 6th, 2020: 5:00pm (ish. we’re human too)
The Vestibule
· encourages to visitors to spend time with art: whether by sitting on our couch or spending the night in the AirBnB
· provides a contemporary exhibition space for artists who are working outside the traditional commercial gallery
· presents exhibitions that play with questions and concepts that cannot be easily addressed in traditional gallery formats

How to Apply

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
· Work sample as jpeg, audio or video file.
· Submissions must be shared via Dropbox.com or Google drive. Please don’t email files. JPEG no smaller than 1800 pixels on longest side at 72 dpi. For large videos, please send a link. Include year made, materials used, photo credit.

Description

Santa Fe Art Institute is accepting applications for our 2021 International Thematic Residency: “Revolution,” which includes our Family Residency Month in July. Applications Due April 1, 2020.

Founded in 1985 by artists for artists, Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate creative leadership, and to invest in community, culture, and place to reimagine a more equitable world.

Santa Fe Art Institute offers residencies free of charge to socially engaged, marginalized, and under-represented artists and creative practitioners from across the globe in all stages of their careers. SFAI is especially committed to supporting artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, people of color, disabled, LGBTQ+, women, and immigrants. Our annual programmatic theme provides common ground for diverse individuals working in various media and disciplines while honoring their differences in experience and perspective.

Throughout our 2021 programmatic theme, Revolution, SFAI will support research, artworks, and creative actions that use artistic imagination to provide sites of resistance, instances of engagement, and solidarity with transformational movements. We seek proposals that aim to revolutionize the status quo and which are bolstered by creative insurrection, utopian imagination, and an expansive agency wherein everyone – across a range of ethnicities, nationalities, gender identities, and abilities – has the power to shape reality.

We ask applicants to consider how art and creative tactics can:
● Reimagine the praxis, grammar, and aesthetics of entrenched and failing systems.
● Radically shift collective perceptions and lived reality to build capacity for self‑determination for all peoples.
● Catalyze and support radical and profound social, political, environmental, and cultural change that is sustained, intergenerational, inclusive, and liberatory.

The core of SFAI’s International Thematic Residency Program is a curated community of diverse creative practitioners living and working together within a shared space, and which requires good interpersonal abilities. All of our programming and partnerships are designed to support thought-provoking conversations and inspire action around social justice, cultural freedom, and environmental responsibility in a safe and supportive space where the sharing of diverse experiences and approaches is celebrated.

To each non-local resident, SFAI offers a furnished private room with full bath and linens, and exterior patio.

To all residents we offer a 10'x12' semi-private studio with desk, chair, and task lamp; 24-7 access to the building, highspeed internet, use of common workspaces, and basic tools; use of communal living areas including a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, lounge, interior courtyard and free laundry facilities; discounted membership to MAKE Santa Fe; basic breakfast foods and 2 communal meals a month; bicycles; and access to our cars with a valid US driver's license; and participation in a monthly public event which includes open studios.

How to Apply

SFAI welcomes Local, National, and International applicants of all backgrounds to apply to our International Thematic Residency Program. Our residency is open to all artistic disciplines and other creative practices including, but not limited to curation, design, architecture, and education. We strongly encourage applicants with interdisciplinary and non-traditional creative practices.

Applications close April 1, 2020

Letters of recommendation due April 8, 2020, 11:59pm

Applicants must be 25 years and older.

SFAI accepts applications from Individuals, Collaborations, and Families.

July is our Family Residency month.

All of our residencies are offered free of charge to awarded residents.

$35 non-refundable application processing fee.

$150 refundable security deposit upon acceptance.

Description

The City of Shoreline Public Art Program seeks to commission a series of site-specific poems (texts as well as voice files such as mp3) that will be displayed in parks and urban areas for 2-6 months each as part of a grant-funded project (“Voices in the Forest,” WA State Arts Commission and NEA). Working with the City’s translation services, as well as any bilingual poets, the “Voices in the Forest” project will provide translation of some of the English-language poems into a second language with a corresponding voice file of the poem read aloud.

The Call is open to artists of all kinds in addition to poets and writers. Up to five artists will be selected from the pool of applicants and offered the opportunity on a commission basis, with $100 per poem/location and an mp3 voicefile for uploading to Sound Cloud (or similar). Commissioned poets do not necessarily need to visit the locations in parks in person as we will provide images of each location (and a map showing location along with directions). Nevertheless, visits are encouraged to be able to fully absorb the full array of sensory phenomena (light, wind, weather, wildlife, smell, touch, sound, etc.)
If the poet is able to translate their own work into a second language, an additional $50 will also be included per poem. The City will also offer to pay poets $50 to read 1-3 of the poems at a culminating celebration (venue TBD, Friday July 17, 2020 OR Saturday July 18). Maximum $500 for any contributing poet, including all commissions, self-translations, and the reading.

Poems will be laminated for display on custom-fabricated poetry signposts. Each signpost will feature a short description of the program and a link to the Sound Cloud page with the spoken versions. Our goal is to bring artists, especially artists of color into the regional and global conversation as primary interpreters of landscape. Content, while driven in part by locations in parks, is expected to range widely within the context of a general audience with potential for families and youth.


For this Open Call, preferred poems are short, 14 – 20 lines in addition to title, with specific visual and other sensory details, Additional criteria include attention to language effects; general audience subject matter; and equity and inclusion for variety of languages and heritages represented through the Project (more below). The city’s Public Art webpage with texts and audio files will provide a virtual exhibition for 24/7 access to the work.

How to Apply

Send 3 - 5 previously written poems (publication is not required; pdf format is preferred), a short bio and short statement to artentry@shorelinewa.gov, with Voices Project in the subject line, by March 30. Replies by April 6. Shorter poems preferred. Themes are open but many of the locations occur within urban forests.

Since our inception, the platform quickly gained a large following and blossomed into a community of artists and their fans, galleries, and collectors, from all corners of the world under the common cause of empowering the artist and championing freedom of expression.

About Artist Trust
Artist Trust is a 501c3 not-for-profit that supports and encourages artists working in all disciplines in Washington State. Artist Trust is recognized as a national model for direct funding and professional development of working artists, and has invested over $10 million in individual artists throughout the state since its inception in 1986.

Artist Trust’s Commitment to Racial Equity

Artist Trust is committed to racial equity throughout our organization, working against systems of racism and engaging in partnership with people of color to truly fulfill our mission to support all artists in Washington State. We lead with race because racial inequities are deep-rooted and persist in art support systems across the country. Race creates barriers to accessing resources and often intersects with other dimensions of artists’ identity, such as ability, age, citizenship, discipline, economic status, education, gender, geography, and sexuality. Our work towards racial equity informs the way we address other inequities and helps us take a more intersectional approach. Our staff and board work collectively and individually to learn about equity, and to take action to increase equity in Artist Trust’s work.

Our Office Culture

Artist Trust actively works to create a positive workplace. We encourage each team member to bring their true self to work, to collaborate and communicate with the team in healthy ways, and to have a good work/life balance. We collectively define our office and community agreements, shaping our culture together. We have a staff meeting every other week where we all cook for each other, eat together, and discuss our work. We retreat as a staff team at least once annually to talk about big picture strategy and collaboration, and we have staff parties and field trips. We offer generous paid time off and flexible work schedules. We are dedicated to learning about and building a healthy office culture.

Description

The Shoreline Art Cottage Residency Program will provide artists working in all disciplines a two month period to create new work in a public park overlooking the Salish Sea (Puget Sound) with sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains. The recently renovated residency space is a former caretaker cottage built in the early 1970s nestled within Richmond Beach Saltwater Park. The cottage provides a creative workspace for any artist along with time to experiment, investigate, and explore Saltwater Park and the surrounding City of Shoreline community.

Richmond Beach Saltwater Park is a 32-acre regional park providing natural open spaces, access to a mile-long beach, and extensive hiking trails. The Park’s bowl-shape today is the result of a former 19th Century gravel quarry. A pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks provides access to the beach, low tide sand flats, delicate eel grass beds, and a beach naturalist program on most summer weekends during a low tide. Beach areas of the Park were once called q’q’e’waidet by the region’s Coastal Salish for a tobacco-like plant gathered in the area. In recognition of these indigenous people, a 10-foot high “Welcoming Figure” sculpture cast in the Coastal Salish style is located in the Park.

Supported by the City of Shoreline’s Public Art Program, the Shoreline Art Cottage Residency Program awards up to three (3) residencies per year to emerging and established artists working in a wide variety of media with projects that explore the culture and landscape of the City of Shoreline and the surrounding region.

For its pilot season in 2020, the artist residencies will be in consecutive two month periods beginning in May 2020 and ending in December 2020. Thus, selected Artists will be pioneering the first public space in the City of Shoreline dedicated to the arts and encouraging a sustainable residency opportunity.

Application materials shall be submitted to artentry@shorelinewa.gov. A list of materials required to be submitted is set forth below along with background information on the Art Cottage, the residency expectations, and other details.
