Life gets busy fast. Sometimes our very best intentions get snarled in the complexities of the day to day and lost. You might plan out a calendar of opportunities only to discover down the road that you have only found the time to pursue a few of them.
Breathe. We understand.
Today let’s look at a couple of opportunities with deadlines before the end of July. These are probably not the places to pitch a brand new concept but if you have completed work that might suit or if you feel a burst of inspiration, perhaps these little last minute somethings could be just the thing you needed to get motivated again.
Allied Arts Council invites artists in various disciplines to apply for their 2019 calls for featured artists. Selected artists will be given the opportunity to exhibit at the gallery space. Allied Arts Council strongly recommends that artists submitting work to this call personally visit the space. For more details and guidelines, visit the Allied Arts Council website. Deadline for submissions is July 31.
The Gateway International Painting Contest awards cash to best in show painters on a monthly basis. Anyone working within the medium of paint is invited to submit to this opportunity. In addition to the best in show award, a separate cash prize is given to the artists’ choice winner each month. For further details and guidelines, visit the website. There is a small fee for submissions. Deadline is July 31.
Sausalito Art Festival invites artists to submit their work to the American Icon Art Competition. The competition seeks work that captures iconic American imagery. Drawing, photography, painting, mixed-media/multi-discipline, and sculpture are all accepted. The theme for 2018 is Americans at Work. For more details and to submit your work, visit the website. There is a small fee for entry. Deadline for submissions is July 31.
We know you’re busy. That’s half the reason Praxis Center is here. Our very existence is dedicated to supporting artists like you who have lives to live while pursuing their dreams of an art career. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day, but it is important to do your best to set time aside to try for as many opportunities as you can. We hope that these three might give you the kick start you’ve been needing. If you want more like this, consider a membership for just $40/month. You’ll gain access to our courses, our virtual community and classroom, and curated opportunities coming at you all year round. Join us today and find your next opportunity.
