Glickman McClure Artist Award
Deadline: February 2
Visual artists are an integral part of our cultural landscape, and provide an important source of creative capital for the Sacramento region. In this regard, donors Mark M. Glickman and Lanette M. McClure have under-written an award to directly support the creation of new work and study by emerging artists in California. Artists can work in any of the following media, including ceramics, painting, sculpture in any medium, glass, printmaking, fiber, drawing, mixed media, installation, photography or video.
The qualifications for this award are that the artist’s submitted work is of high caliber, original, and completed within the past five years. Preference will be given to artists who are under-recognized or ‘emerging’ in the art field, thus while they may have exhibiting experience, their exhibit history will not be extensive. Artists must be dedicated to the practice of making and exhibiting art, and need financial support. The award is limited to artists residing in California, and will be determined by a panel of experts and donors.
The selected artist will receive an award of $2,500 and the offering of a solo exhibit, in the Pence’s Dowling Community Gallery. Awardees will be expected to create new work for the Pence exhibit, and to lead a workshop or talk based on their work. Solo exhibit for artist in January-February 2019.
