Deadline: September 5

Jurors: Jay Gould, Shane Lavalette, Karen Davis, Edie Bresler

The John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship seeks to recognize, encourage and reward photographers with the potential to create a body of work and sustain solo exhibitions. Awarded annually, the Scholarship provides recipients with a monetary award of $3,000, exhibition of their work at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and a volume from John’s personal library of photography books. The Scholarship seeks to provide a watershed moment in the professional lives of emerging photographers, providing them with the support and encouragement necessary to develop, articulate and grow their own vision for photography.

Eligibility Criteria:

The scholarship is open to photographers who have produced individual works of photography and/or are in the process of producing bodies of work.

We are looking for candidates who are serious about photography, whose potential is emerging and whose photography will benefit from this scholarship. Candidates should not be currently enrolled in a photography degree program. There is no age limit. There are no residency requirements.

Photographers without gallery representation who have not exhibited solo in a gallery/museum setting are eligible (coffee shop, community gallery, library etc. are eligible exhibition settings).

Well-established photographers are individuals in mid-photography-careers and are seen by the public and peers as distinguished in the field of photography and have many accomplishments as a photographer. Please note again that an artist who has had SOLO exhibitions in established galleries/museums or has gallery representation will be considered too accomplished to receive this scholarship.

Guggenheim Fellowship

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship
Deadline: September 19

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation provides fellowships for advanced professionals in all fields — including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts — except the performing arts. To that end, the foundation awards approximately two hundred fellowships a year.

The fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. The program seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge or artistic creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a period ranging between six and twelve months. Since the purpose of the program is to help provide fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary.

Support is only available to individuals. Fellowships are not available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the development of websites or blogs.

The foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

Grant amounts vary, and the foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project.

Alaska Native artists and artists between the ages of 16 and 25 are strongly encouraged to apply.The Artist-in-Residence program is dedicated to exploring new ways for visitors to experience Denali.

Visits include a permit for limited access along the Denali Park Road and time alone at a historic ranger patrol cabin.

Each participant volunteers to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and to donate a finished work to the program collection. Artists are challenged to create works for visitors that convey a fresh and innovative perspective of Denali drawn from direct experience. With the welcome addition of several year-round gallery spaces beyond park boundaries, more of these donated works enjoy a larger life in the public eye.

Costs of program operations and collateral-duty staffing are supported by visitor entry fees. Costs of supplies for free outreach activities are provided by Alaska Geographic with funds derived from purchases at park bookstores.

The Residency Experience and Expectations:  All residents must provide their own transportation to and from the park, as well as any supplies, provisions, clothing, and outdoor gear for the duration of their stay. No stipend is provided. Each resident may bring one adult guest to stay within accommodations provided.

UMass Amherst: Home

Home
Deadline: August 1

The Augusta Savage Gallery at UMass Amherst
Amherst, MA

The Augusta Savage Gallery at UMass Amherst is currently accepting artist submissions of work that considers Home as the subject of their creations. A story must accompany the artwork. Tell that story, whether fictional or true, in 100 words or less. They request that artists only submit new work created specifically for this exhibition.

Home carries with it many meanings. It suggest many things. Home can trigger memories or spark anticipation. It sometimes reminds us of painful experiences, or offers some promise of freedom, or evokes terror of a future. For some, Home is connected to a place or moment in time that carries pleasurable memories. For others, it is a place to which, regrettably, they cannot nor will ever return.
 
Some have generational ties to home. They have witnessed the expulsion and dispersion of entire communities from their places of birth, and the rupturing of familial and cultural continuity. Some think of Home in ideological terms and are shocked and repulsed by politics and values in a nation that once felt safe, but now create tremendous anxiety. Still others have never been privy to the stability of solid ground beneath their feet, a home base, a sense of nationhood, or belonging.
 
A spiritual leader once reminded his followers, “Everywhere you go, there you are.”  Here is yet another way of understanding Home – that there exists a place inside us that is familiar and safe, and which holds us strong and erect in dangerous circumstances.
 
There are many ways to think about Home. Our Call For Submissions invites artists to consider Home as the subject of their creations. We encourage artists to be as focused and specific in their thinking and artwork as possible in order that this exhibition may have maximum impact.

Residency 108
Clermont, NY

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Frequent visitors include coyotes, deer and wild turkeys. The barn is home to chickens, sheep, horses, goats, cats, a cow and a pig. There is also a private residence on the property, which is not available for use by residents.

The residency is located in a remote area; the closest village is a 7-minute drive or 25-minute bike ride. There is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Artist Residency
Deadline: July 31

BRICworkspace

The selected artists will be given rent-free use of a furnished park house in the main canyon. Artists must be self-sufficient and provide all of their necessary supplies. Selected artists will receive a $300 stipend to assist with travel and supply expenses when their donated piece of work has been received by the park. This call applies to all sessions offered in 2018.

The Zion National Park Artist in Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to live and work in the majestic desert environment of southern Utah for a period of one month. Four artists will be selected for two spring and two fall residency slots. All visual (painters, photographers, sculptures, etc.), performing (drama, dance, music, composition, etc.) and literary artists are welcome to apply.

The work completed under this program will contribute to the public understanding and appreciation of Zion National Park and should reflect the National Park Service’s mission to preserve and protect the park’s cultural and natural resources.

When in Residence the artist is highly independent, but is expected to present two public programs tailored to an individual’s medium, interest, experience, and audience. Holding periodic open studio hours is also encouraged and interacting with the public while in the park is required.

Upon conclusion of the Residency, participating artists are given up to six months to finish work inspired by the Residency. An original piece representative of the Residency will then be donated to Zion National Park. The work may be placed in the Park’s permanent museum collection, interpretive collection, or, in partnership with the Zion Natl Park Forever Project, may be used in other ways to financially support the park’s Artist in Residence programming.
