CHARLOTTE STREET 2019-20 STUDIO RESIDENCIES

APPLICATION DEADLINE  MAY 27th 2019

Charlotte Street Foundation is seeking applications from visual artists, performing artists, and writers interested in its Studio Residency Program. Applications are due Monday, May 27th 2019. The year-long studio residency term runs September 2019 through September 2020. 


Applications will be accepted through CaFE  www.callforentry.org.
Charlotte Street Foundation administers an independent jury panel each term.

Entering its sixteenth year, the Studio Residency Program provides free studio and rehearsal spaces to exceptional emerging and/or already accomplished artists in need of workspace in which to create and to develop their creative processes, professional practices, and peer networks. Through the program’s offerings—which include studio space, required monthly meetings, presentations, studio visits, mentorships, public programs, exhibitions, and access to a multidisciplinary network of artist peers—Charlotte Street’s Studio Residency Program encourages creative production, artistic experimentation and collaboration, professional development, and community building.

Charlotte Street Foundation addresses artist’s need for studio space in Kansas City by securing vacant downtown office space, in partnership with generous real estate owners. Since its inception in 2004, the program has supported hundreds of artists. Approximately 30 artists will be in residence during the year-long term (September 2019 through September 2020). Charlotte Street strives for an equal mix of emerging and established artists representing a multiplicity of disciplines. Applicants will be notified by July 2019. 

Studio Space:
Currently, Charlotte Street Foundation provides studios at:
Town Pavilion, 1100 Walnut, 6th Floor, Kansas City, MO 64106.

  • All artists- 24-hour access & wifi

  • Visual artist studios- 16 private spaces and dedicated areas within larger, open shared spaces available

  • Writer studios- 5 private and semi-private studios

  • All studios are workspaces only; the program does not provide residential accommodations.

  • The studios are not furnished and do not include access to specialized equipment, tools, materials, etc.

Program components:

Participating artists are expected to commit to:

  • Advancing their artistic practices and professional development

  • Building a sense of community with fellow studio artists

  • Leveraging their residencies toward future opportunities

Note: Artists who do not make full, creative use of the opportunity may be asked to leave the program.

Also note: All artists selected for residencies will be required to complete goal-setting worksheets and meet with Charlotte Street Foundation staff for short, in-person interviews prior to the commencement of their residencies in order to review goals, plans, space needs, etc.

Other benefits include:

  • Monthly meetings —all-resident group meetings occur the Third Monday evening of each month throughout the term. The meetings allow the artists to connect, collaborate, and share resources. Guest speakers are also scheduled throughout the term to build community, present opportunities and professional development tips to the residents.

  • Mentorships — Residents are paired with volunteer artists or arts professionals from the broader community who agree to meet periodically over the course of the term. Each artist completes a goal-setting worksheet at the onset of their residency which is shared with their mentor to help guide the objectives of the mentorship.

  • Studio Visits— Artists, gallerists, curators, writers, etc. are invited for one-on-one studio visits with residents, arranged both by CSF and by residents themselves. These visits provide experience, feedback, and new connections for residents.

The public is invited to visit the residency studios, meet artists and see new and in-process artworks, experience live performances, hear artist talks, writer's readings, and more.

Eligibility:

Residencies are granted to selected artists for one-year terms, which run September through September. Artists who make exceptional use of their studios are eligible to apply for a second year term, with their applications subject to the same competitive review as new applicants. Full-time students will NOT be considered.

  • Visual artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Note, the use of toxic materials (spray paint, oil paint mediums) in studios is prohibited.

The New Mexico Department of Transportation is seeking an artist or artist team to advise and provide specific recommendations to the design team on the aesthetic treatment of the I-25 and Montgomery Interchange to be reconstructed in Albuquerque, NM.

This project is on the mainline of I-25 in north Albuquerque and serves as a gateway to the Montano commercial area and river crossing of the Rio Grande to the west and the Montgomery commercial and residential areas to the East.


The project will address reconstruction and the capacity needs of the interchange and adjacent frontage roads for the next 20 years while providing an aesthetic experience for the estimated 94,000 trips by the traveling public that pass through the area on a daily basis.
 

Surfaces to be addressed may include bridge abutments, railings, project retaining walls, and pedestrian fencing as defined by the design team. Treatments may be expressed through color, texture, and unique repeating concrete form liners for vertical surfaces and metallic shapes for fencing. Subtle lighting treatments may be considered if they do not cause a distraction to drivers and the local government agency agrees to pay for power, maintenance and repairs/replacement. Treatments will address the cultural and natural resource qualities of this northern part of Albuquerque, and comprise an holistic aesthetic ‘look’ for the interchange without providing a distraction to the traveling public.
 

Interested parties must apply and be prepared to demonstrate aesthetic ability, ability to work as part of a team, and ability to work within time and monetary budgets. Interested applicants must be New Mexico residents at the time of the submittal and during the aesthetic treatment development.

An honorarium of $500 will be paid to each participating semi-finalist who must appear in person to meet with the LSC. A site-specific recommendation indicating the applicant understands the commission is not required at the interview however demonstrating understanding and the ability to produce a site-specific work are.
 

The LSC will select an artist or team to develop draft alternatives for presentation to the public and panel. At least one public involvement meeting will be required as part of the design process. 

Among prominent local natural resource themes would be the Sandia Mountains, the West Mesa, and the Rio Grande Bosque. Among local cultural themes are the balloon fiesta park neighborhood, general Southwestern motifs, and transportation.

 

Maintainability and constructability of proposed features will be important evaluation criteria.

The selection criteria shall include, but are not limited to:

  • The qualifications of the artist(s) as demonstrated by the supporting materials.

Newcastle, ME 04553


REQUIREMENTS:

Total Media - Minimum: 10, Maximum: 10 


Many of Watershed’s summer residency sessions are organized by artists—who propose a theme related to clay and recruit a handful of other artists to join them for two or three weeks. We call these Artists Invite Artists (AIA) Groups. The balance of participants in each AIA session register independently, often drawn by a shared interest in the session theme. Once at Watershed, all artists work side-by-side in the Watershed studios, forming one community.

An AIA session provides an opportunity to gather with colleagues you know or to spend time with artists whose work you’ve admired from afar. The lead artist and group of invited artists can collectively shape a creative thematic retreat without the pressure and preparation involved in leading a typical training or workshop. AIA sessions are inspired and guided by the leading artists, but time is spent in shared exploration and dialogue in the studio rather than in formal instruction. While clay is core to the Watershed experience, some AIA artists work in other media as well.

To submit a proposal, you must develop a session theme and recruit at least four (and up to 8) other artists to participate in the session.  As the AIA leader, you attend the residency free of charge and your AIA invited artists receive a 15% discount off their residency fees.

Applications to organize a residency are due annually on June 15 in the year prior to the residency. Applicants will be notified in August of their status. For more information on how AIA sessions work, please visit the Watershed website at http://www.watershedceramics.org/residencies/organize-a-residency/

1. Statement of Purpose

The New Art Center's Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) supports independent curators of contemporary art by making diverse visions possible in a non-profit and alternative exhibition space. The program investigates contemporary culture through the visual arts, exhibits strong curatorial voices, and encourages the timely examination of new ideas and perspectives.

The New Art Center (NAC) are currently accepting curatorial proposals for 5- to 7-week group exhibitions from September 2019 – May 2020 at the New Art Center in Newton. We will only accept electronic submissions received by June 5, 2018. No extensions will be granted and no paper applications will be accepted.

2. Background Information

Since 1991, NAC has used its Main Gallery for group exhibitions (two artists or more) curated by an exhibiting artist or independent curator. We continue this tradition through the COP, our annual public call for curatorial proposals.

Our Main Gallery is one of the few mid-sized nonprofit exhibition spaces in New England, which attracts over 5,000 visitors each year. The gallery occupies the hall of a former church, with 25-foot vaulted ceilings, substantial natural light, and several movable wall panels. The space is approximately 2,500 square feet, with an average width of 39 feet and an average length of 40+ feet.

A visit to the gallery prior to application is advised and encouraged, if possible. Two curatorial workshops, led by local curators, will be held on March 14 and April 25 from 7-9 PM. Prospective applicants are encouraged (though not required) to attend one of these workshops to hear more about the curatorial process and have questions about the program answered by NAC staff. To register, visit https://newartcenter.org/index.php/workshops-products/

The COP furthers the NAC’s mission to offer exceptional opportunities to make, exhibit, view, think about and talk about art. COP exhibitions and associated public programs are the foundation of our gallery education and outreach programs and enhance the learning available in our studio classes and workshops, which educate over 2,500 students annually and sustain a faculty of over 40 professional artists.

3. Scope of Work

Required:

  • Proposals must include works by two artists or more.
  • Proposals must include one public program with an educational component; more than one is encouraged (see ‘proposed public programs’ under Criteria, below).
  • In proposals including one’s own work, that work should not be the main focus of the exhibition, and should only be included if it supports the thesis. Artists wishing to include their own artwork in the proposal must be willing to eliminate their own work if the panel feels that such a cut would strengthen the exhibition. 

Additional Considerations:                

  • The proposed exhibitions can include works in a single medium or several media, from painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and video to installation, performance, and sound art. A variety of media or diverse use of similar media is recommended.
  • Exhibitions may be organized around medium or process
  • Exhibitions may investigate social, cultural, historical, theoretical or political concepts
  • Strong applications are centered on a curatorial concept that ties the work together (see "4.Decision Criteria")

NAC Support
For each exhibition, the New Art Center provides a curator stipend to be applied to exhibition-related expenses at the curator's discretion. The stipend is awarded after the opening reception. Curators and artists are encouraged to consult with the NAC to seek outside funding to enhance their exhibition program(s) or invitation, or to provide for additional advertising. The NAC receives a 50% commission on sales of any works in the exhibitions. 

The NAC provides:

  • a set budget for printing of a postcard invitation
  • a $1,000 USD curator stipend
  • public relations support such as sending press releases to press venues
  • advertisements, extensive listings, emails to our 10,000+ person mailing list, and posts to our social media feeds
  • duplication of material for distribution at the exhibition
  • gallery signage
  • insurance up to $150,000 in total for art work while it is at the NAC
  • physical assistance in preparing the space and installing the work
  • an opening reception with refreshments

The NAC does not provide (or pay for):

  • transportation of artworks or artists to or from the NAC
  • installation construction beyond basic installation and wall configuration

4. Decision Criteria

  • Quality of the work to be shown: Note - though submission of artists' resumes is required, artists who lack substantial exhibition records and experience will still be considered.
  • Clarity, subtlety, and power of the underlying curatorial concept: Proposed exhibitions must articulate a clear central idea, convincingly supported by the work included. This idea, or thesis, must be expressed in a brief curator's statement of concept. This is required whether the central idea is simply strong aesthetic resonance between works in a single medium or complex theoretical or academic dialogue presented across multiple media.
  • Proposed public programs: The Curatorial Opportunity Program helps advance the New Art Center’s educational mission by using the galleries to enhance the experience of NAC’s students and guests. Proposals must include at least one educational component connected with the exhibition, the goal of which is to place the exhibition, the art practices, and the curatorial practice into the larger context of contemporary art for a general public. This can consist of a panel discussion, gallery talk, ongoing interactive presentations, activities geared toward engaging the NAC’s daily student population or related presentations and/or performances in other mediums.
  • Capability of the curator to carry out the project: In addition to working with the Exhibitions Director on the exhibition design and installation, curators are also responsible for communicating with the artists. This includes assuring timely delivery of press materials, adherence to agreed-upon artwork delivery and pickup times, etc. The curator and artists are expected to work with the Exhibitions Manager to assure that all necessary tasks are accomplished and deadlines are met.

5. Eligibility                               
All artists and curators are eligible regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, belief, national origin, sexual orientation or physical abilities. While artists and curators from the greater Boston area are encouraged to participate, there are no geographic restrictions. Please keep in mind that the NAC does not pay for travel expenses or shipping of artwork (or insurance of artwork in transit to or from NAC).

Proposals will not be considered for one-person exhibitions or if they envision a general call to artists. Additionally, proposals will not be considered if they lack a statement of concept; require financial support from the Center beyond the usual stipend and services (see Support); are late or incomplete; are inappropriately scaled for the Main Gallery (see Gallery Space) or have prohibitively complex and/or expensive installation requirements.

Description

Joshua Liner Gallery seeks a full-time Registrar / Preparator. The ideal candidate should have significant experience in a gallery or museum environment, with a strong interest in Contemporary Art. Primary duties and responsibilities revolve around all aspects of the Gallery’s inventory: both their physical installation, maintenance, shipping and storage, as well as digital side of organization.   Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: coordinating and managing all incoming and outgoing shipments, loans and consignments for external galleries and institutions, and condition reports for incoming works. Ongoing, the applicant is expected to maintain accurate inventory records for all artworks; measuring and entering new details in the database as they come, insuring that all details are up-to-date and inline with physical inventory onsite and at storage at all times. You will be responsible for all inventory lists as needed: price lists, checklists, and artwork labels for Gallery exhibitions and art fairs.   Physically, the applicant will be responsible for the installation of monthly exhibitions, and responsible for handling a team of outside installers, when necessary. Candidate must have a knowledge of materials to be able to build appropriate and safe packages for shipping, as well as for installing artwork.

Minor photography (with provided equipment) is sometimes required, when needed. The candidate should possess a natural ability to work closely with others, to communicate as a small team.

REQUIREMENTS:

Media

LOCATION/CONTEXT: The High Desert Rose Garden site provides an ideal location to include public art.  The Main focal point for the artwork will be the entrance to the High Desert Rose Garden.  This entrance space will provide the potential for an exterior mobile/hanging or recessed type (stained glass) artwork that considers the use of New Mexico’s natural light and how the work will transform the surrounding area via the interaction of light and shadows.  The work will need to be structurally sound to withstand short intense wind bursts.  Ultimately, the artwork should add to the experience that the visitors enjoy when visiting the High Desert Rose Garden. 

PROJECT INTENT/THEME: The intent of the High Desert Rose Garden is to demonstrate that roses have a place in the southwest xeric landscape. The way the work relates to this intent, the site, and the surrounding landscape, will weigh significantly in the selection process. New Mexico is known for its open skies and natural light.  Artists are encouraged to incorporate this element into the work using tradition and nontraditional ways of manipulating and incorporating the natural light. 

MEDIA/STYLE/SIZE: The Art Selection Committee will consider a variety of media and styles that incorporate but not limited to: glass, stone, metal, wood or other media that integrates well with the existing architecture and the natural southwest environment of the High Desert Rose Garden. The artwork must be suitable for long-term outdoor display. Durability and minimal routine maintenance will be desirable aspects of a successful proposal. The project will support an artwork that will utilize and/or incorporate durable natural materials that will enhance the High Desert Rose Garden.

BUDGET: A maximum of $50,000.00 is available to the selected artist to design, fabricate, transport and install the work(s) at the BioPark Botanic Garden’s rose garden. (1% for Art Funds: BioPark)

 PROCESS: This is a National, open competition, Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for all artists and/or artist teams.  The Art Selection Committee will offer a stipend for preliminary design concepts from a set of finalists not to exceed 5 (five); or at the discretion of the Art Selection Committee, the committee reserves the right to select a single artist and/or artist team from the original submissions from the RFQ.  Stipend funds of $500 per selected finalist are available.

 Deadline for Submission:  December 30,2017

 Eligibility: This competition is a National Call for Artists, open to artists and designers who reside in the United States.

 1.       A letter of intent, not to exceed 1000 words, discussing your approach to the site, its context, and potential opportunities you may explore in executing your artwork.

2.       Up to 8 (eight) digital images of past work that would be suitable as indicators of your experience and aesthetic choices.  If you have completed successful public artworks, they would be helpful (though not necessary) for the committee to review.

4.       A current resume not to exceed 3 (three) pages should include statements regarding your artwork/art education or CV. If you are submitting as part of a team, please include separate resumes and statements for each individual.
