Last week we suggested a resolution for artists–make 2012 the year you get serious about your artwork–and we’re here to help you put it into practice. Here are some calls for entries to consider as you start getting your artwork out there!
Especially for Montgomery County, MD Artists–There is a call for exhibitions of MoCo resident artists and art groups. This call is used to select artists to exhibit in the Betty Mae Kramer Gallery in the Silver Spring Civic Building in downtown Silver Spring and the Terrace Gallery at the BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown. The deadline is February 17th, so you have just over a month to get things pulled together (if you need tips on documenting your artwork, see our post here). Full details for this call for entries is at this website.
Especially for Printmaking Students–You’ll need a little help for this one, as you need to be nominated, but it’s worth it to talk to your professors if you think you deserve it: SGCI currently has a call for nominations out for Student Fellowships, which are awarded to one undergraduate and one graduate student who exhibit outstanding promise in the fine art practice of printmaking. The winning undergrad gets $500 and the winning graduate gets $1000. Hurry though, deadline is January 15. You can see the full call for nominations here.
For everyone else–Arc Gallery in Mill Valley, CA has an open call for the upcoming exhibition “Consequences.” Deadline is February 24. Details here. The Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA is accepting applications for its visiting artist program. Deadline is February 15. Details here.
