The Image Flow invites applications for a 2 – 3 month Artist Residency program to support a visual artist working within photography and/or image-based media.

The resident photographer may also choose to present a lecture on their work to the community, though this will be voluntary.

Still life images pepper our lives. Eyes linger on objects that catch the light, or on curved lines that flow against a harder edge or a blank wall. Within stillness, texture, color, subject, light, and shadow all intertwine to tell a story. Something happened here. Something was left.

Whether found or created, still life images may become quiet and powerful forms of personal expression. A compelling photographic still life will make us pause to look at what might have been considered mundane. For this exhibition, we seek images that represent subjects in new and interesting ways, and that perhaps push the limits of what we might consider “still life.”

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.

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).

This scholarship is not for well-established photographers. 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.

Creative Capital: Arts Writers Grant

Creative Capital and the Andy Warhol Foundation 2018 Writers Grant
Deadline: May 21

The Arts Writers grant supports both emerging and established writers who are writing about contemporary visual art. Ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 in four categories — articles, blogs, books and short-form writing — these grants support projects addressing both general and specialized art audiences, from scholarly studies to self-published blogs. The program also supports art writing that engages criticism through interdisciplinary methods or experiments with literary styles. As long as a writer meets the eligibility and publishing requirements, they can apply.

By “contemporary visual art,” we mean visual art made since World War II. Projects on post-WWII work in adjacent fields—architecture, design, film, performance, sound, experimental music, etc.—will only be considered if they directly and significantly engage the discourses and concerns of contemporary visual art. Projects with a pre-WWII component will only be considered if the project’s main focus is contemporary.

An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable subjects in the actual world.
