Are You Slowing Down?

Summer is often a time for slowing down. It is important to take time to refresh, check in with yourself and make sure you’re working with everything possible. But that doesn’t mean summer needs to be lost time. There are ways to keep irons in the fire while still changing your pace. For artists, that means having opportunities lined up so you can hit the ground running. Here are a few to get you started.

Stove Works’ Artist Residency invites eight artists to stay from February to November for 1-3 months, offering them dedicated time, space, and resources. Learn more at the website. Application deadline is June 15.

Submit your work for the art book Volume 20 by Friend of the Artist. Accepted artists get a four-page spread, a written statement and exposure to over 40 galleries worldwide. For more information and to submit your work, visit the website. Deadline is June 16.

Vermont Studio Center offers a number of fellowship opportunities. Those whose work was well-received but were not awarded fellowship may still receive an invitation. To learn more about the program offerings, visit the website. Deadlines vary depending on which fellowship is applied for.

Praxis Center is dedicated to nurturing artists and their careers. We know this can be a steep uphill road, but we also know that there are lots of resources out there. Give Praxis a try today and see how far it can take you.
