Foley Gallery: Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror
Deadline: October 29

Foley Gallery
New York, NY

Juror: Elinor Carruci

Mirrors and Beauty go hand in hand. Originally an incantation in the Brothers Grimm 19th-century story Little Snow-White and expanded upon in Disney's version more than 100 years later, “Mirror, mirror” has us questioning what beauty is and how it can be measured.

Mirrors are reflective surfaces, typically constructed of glass coated with a metal amalgam that reflects a clear image. You can take our theme literally and look to the properties of a mirror or reflective surface, or you can look at a mirror as metaphor for beauty. You artwork need not have a depiction of an actual mirror in it to be considered.

Fees: 3 images for $30, 4 images for $40, 5-6 images for $50

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.

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.

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).

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.

Los Angeles, CA

Humankind owes an enormous amount of gratitude to the horse. Domestication of the horse provided humans with mobility, survival and pleasure. Yet today, horses are facing a daunting challenge. Yearly round ups by the Bureau of Land Management, kill buyers, horse racing breakdowns and drought that forces some owners to abandon their animals, have left horse’s lives in peril.  This dilemma is not going away anytime soon. Compounding this problem could get complicated even further by our current Washington Bureaucracy.
