Did you give yourself some rest and respite during the holidays? If so, welcome back to reality (so to speak) and let’s dive right back in! There is no better time than right now to start lining up applications for the year. Submitting work to grant cycles, residencies and competitions is easily as important as the other aspects of your art career. Prioritizing time for applications is critical and should be a regular feature in your time management. Here are a few upcoming opportunities scattered across the next couple of months to get you going.
Professional visual artists (that’s you) are invited to apply to the artist in residence program and Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest. This residency, in its third decade, has lured artists from around the world to work in the beauty of the natural world. Up to four artists per year are awarded residency and there is a stipend available. For further details and to apply, visit the website. Deadline is January 21.
Etant donnés offers grants to American curators wishing to conduct and deepen their research in contemporary art in France. These grants are intended to expand the opportunities of American curators, to encourage in-depth explorations of French cultural resources, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge among artists, professionals, researchers, and institutions. Candidates are encouraged to connect with art professionals and other researchers as well as with institutions, universities, art schools, or private and public archives in preparation for future exhibitions or collaborations. For complete details and to apply, visit the website. Deadline is February 1.
Do you have an adventurous spirit and an interest in creating wearable art? Right now the World of Wearable Art Competition (WOW) is accepting submissions for the 2019 cycle.
