INVITATIONAL CALL TO ARTISTS: CASH PRIZE AND PAID TRIP TO GERMANY

Dear Artists,
 
I would like to ask you to consider submitting a letter of intent to design and paint a piece of art in honor of Charlotte’s deep and rich relationship to Germany. The artist who wins the commission will receive $1,000 plus an expense-paid, round-trip 7-day excursion to Berlin. The final piece will be on permanent display at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Main Library in Uptown Charlotte.
 
I hope that you will consider submitting your materials. We are not asking for an elaborate application. You have been selected to submit materials because of our respect for you as an artist. Attached is a detailed description of the project and guidelines. This is a terrific opportunity for an artist in Charlotte. We would like to have a pool of very strong concepts from which to select an artist. Please join us in this process.
 
Thank you.
 
Warmly,
Suzanne

CALL FOR ARTSPACE REGIONAL EMERGING ARTISTS
Call for Artspace Regional Emerging Artists
Raleigh, N.C. – Established in January 2000, Artspace's Regional Emerging Artist Residency is a program that provides emerging visual artists with time and space to explore their work in a supportive, thriving, artistic environment. Two artists in their early professional careers are selected from a regional pool of applicants every six months. All applications are due October 1, 2013, for the January-July 2014 residency.
 
The residency includes a private, rent-free studio with 24-hour access. Artspace does NOT provide transportation or living quarters. Each month, residents are presented to the Triangle community during Artspace’s opening receptions and gallery walks. A fully supported exhibition of the resident’s work will be presented at Artspace after the residency.
 
The primary focus of the program is to provide an artist with time for independent work, but some participation in Artspace programs is expected. During the residency, artists must contribute to Artspace’s educational programs and tours by working in their studios during business hours, especially during scheduled tours. Resident artists will also be expected to give a presentation, talk, and/or demonstration to the public during the 6-month residency or during their exhibition. Deadline: October 1, 2013. Find out more here.


ARTSPACE CALL FOR EXHIBITIONS
Raleigh, N.C. – Artspace, a non-profit visual art center located in downtown Raleigh, NC, is seeking innovative work for solo and/or group exhibitions from emerging and established artists working in all media for its Galleries 1 and 2. Exhibitions will be scheduled for September 2014 and beyond.

Exhibitions typically run for 6-8 weeks with an opening reception being held during First Friday Gallery Walks. Many exhibits include an artist’s talk or demonstration. Exhibits are free and open to the public. All exhibitions are supported through press, insurance coverage, and small stipends to support the work of artists. Artspace creates a brochure for each exhibition. Works may be for sale; however, Artspace does not place an emphasis on the sale of artwork in this exhibition series, but rather on education and inspiration. Artspace takes a small commission of 30% on works sold in its galleries. All entries must be submitted through callforentry.org (CaFÉ). Deadline is September 10, 2013, 11:59pm. Find out more here.
