Several Calls for Entries and even a few JOB postings WPG wishes to share with you:
1. Excellence in Printmaking Call for Entries–For the past five years WPG has paired with the Washington Print Foundation and Washington Print Club to present the annual Excellence in Printmaking Award to a local fine arts BFA or MFA candidate. This February, we are expanding that award into an exhibition, juried this year by Katherine Blood, Curator of Fine Prints for the Library of Congress. Fine art majors from the DC/Baltimore/Richmond area are encouraged to apply–$500 cash award to first place, other prizes awarded as well. Details at the link above, deadline December 31.
2. WPA Coup d’Espace call for entries–Deadline extended to December 1! Washington Project for the Arts is inviting member artists (you can still sign up for membership–very cheap!) to “transform the WPA’s office headquarters into a dynamic space for thought provoking, art-minded events.” This is a great way to get an exhibit, poetry reading, artist talk, etc in the heart of DC.
3.VisArts at Rockville–VisArts, a multi-use art center in Rockville, MD has three job openings! They are looking for an Audio Visual Tech, a Gallery and Events Coordinator, and a Facility Manager. Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
