BIG Awards 2019

The aim of the B.I.G. Awards is to give emerging artists who are looking for gallery representation in Barcelona in Spain an opportunity for recognition, exposure, and professionalization. 

 

Artists will be appraised for the quality of their proposal and concept, so you do not need to have a great curriculum to be chosen. 30 artists will be selected and exhibit their work in an art gallery in Barcelona from mid-September to mid-October 2019.

Sculpture on the Lawn 2019

Call to Artists

Sculpture on the Lawn 2019

Orange County Accepting Proposals through July 1, 2019

 

Artists are invited to submit work – existing or conceptual – for the fifth annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition, an outdoor display featured at the entrance to the Orange County Administration Center (201 S. Rosalind Ave.) in the heart of downtown Orlando, Florida, where the works are visible to approximately 10,000 people daily.

                                                                                            

Sculpture on the Lawn is open to experienced professional sculptors as well as students and emerging artists who specialize in the design, construction and installation of outdoor sculptures. Up to three sculptures will be selected for display from October 2019 to September 2020. One of the sculptures will be selected from a student or emerging artist, if suitable.

 

DEADLINE: Monday, July 1, 2019. Applications, resumes, images and other materials must be submitted by midnight through the CaFÉ online service. Here is the link:

https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=5398.

 

Selection Criteria: The three main considerations are creativity, site appropriateness and durability. Images of finished works and conceptual drawings can be submitted. If the proposed project is not a finished work, artists need to provide information to assure the Selection Panel of what it will look like and that it will be completed and installed as designed.

 

Artist Responsibilities: Selected artists must transport the artwork to the site on the specified date and install it with minimal assistance, then remove the artwork after the exhibition.

 

Sites and Safety: While artistic quality is very important, works will be reviewed for durability, safety and appropriateness to the site. Artworks must be structurally sound and able to withstand an outdoor environment in a largely unsupervised area that is not protected from weather or curious viewers. Orlando has a subtropical climate that is hot and humid with intense sun and seasonal heavy rains and hurricane-force winds. Avoiding potential problems such as deteriorating rust and fading should be considered.

 

Installation: Orange County provides 12-by-12-foot concrete pads. Sculptures must be firmly secured to the pads.

 

Selection Panel: Members of the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Public Art Review Board will make the selections.

 

Honorarium: Each artist will be awarded $3,500 as a fee for the annual loan of his or her artwork and to help offset any necessary transportation, installation and housing costs. No other compensation will be provided. A payment of $3,000 will be made upon installation and processing of required paperwork and $500 will be paid upon removal.

 

Insurance: Orange County will insure the artwork up to its stated value or $50,000, whichever is less, for theft or major vandalism. The artist will be responsible for any repairs needed due to fabrication defects or reasonable wear and tear of the object in a public location.

 

Size: There is a 6-foot minimum height preference. The sky is the limit for the maximum height.

 

Sales: Sales of the works will be encouraged and promoted. Any sales inquiries will be forwarded to the artist or designated agent. No commission will be charged. Sculptures must remain on site until September 2020.

 

Applications: Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs is using CaFÉ for this public art selection process. The full application can be found at www.callforentry.org. Here is the link: https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=5398 There is no charge for artists to register with CaFÉ or submit an application. 

 

Important notes:
 

--Make sure to indicate if you are a student or emerging artist.
--Make sure to indicate if the work is existing or conceptual.
--A minimum of 1 image is required, and the maximum is 6. Images of finished works or conceptual drawings can be submitted. If it is not a finished work, provide additional information to assure the Selection Panel of what it will look like and that it will be completed and installed as designed.

 

Timeline:

 

--Proposals due: July 1, 2019, midnight
--Notification of acceptance: July 12, 2019
--Installation time frame: October 1 to 12, 2019
--Sculpture on the Lawn Opening Celebration: October 21, 2019, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Calling All Queer Artists- An Invitation to Third Space: The Pride of North Side

Calling All Queer Artists- An Invitation to Third Space: The Pride of North Side (Tercer Espacio: Orgullo de North Side)

 

The soul mission of Third Space: The Pride of North Side is to provide a safe space for the LGBTQIA community. We seek out underrepresented areas and create platforms for our voices to be heard.

 

Our agenda is simple: The Queernormative.

Promoting queer sex, ideas, art, & resources.

We will not hide, shy away, or be ashamed.

 

Third Space: The Pride of North Side is currently seeking artists and vendors for its first festival event on October 5, 2019.

 

If you are queer, we are looking for you and your work! We are aiming to specifically to highlight works from our local LGBTQIA+ community. Our plan is to provide a safe space for people to promote queer-friendly perspectives, art, and resources.

 

We are offering a number of spaces at the McCandless Street Goat Farm for exhibition, performances, and vending opportunities. The McCandless Street Goat Farm is 1.5 acre destination beautifully adorned with cactus and home to a number of goats and a miniature pony.  

 

Several areas of the farm will be used for installation space and will be available for artists to work on their concepts.

 

Third Space will also involve a collaborative work that gives back to the North Side community for all participating artists. (More details to come soon.)

 

Quick Details:

What? Third Space: The Pride of North Side- A celebration of queer culture.

Where? 2300 McCandless Street, Fort Worth, TX 76106

When? Saturday. October 5, 2019, 3 PM to 1 AM

Why? We noticed that Fort Worth, specifically the North Side area, is lacking of dedicated areas for queer creatives and people to be recognized and feel validated for their work. This event is a specific response to this issue.

How? We are an all-volunteer team who are developing this event as a labor of love to the queer community.

 

Submission Guidelines:

To submit your work, send an email to thirdspacetx [op] gmail [punt] com with the Subject Line: Third Space Artist Submission.

In the email, include your name, titles of your work, brief biography/ statement, and any web or social media handles you want to be promoted. Please send up to three images or a video of your work for consideration.

Image submissions should be high resolution image files in JPEG, GIF, or PNG format.

Art of all mediums are encouraged for submission including but not limited to paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, and much more.

All work must be ready for installation.

Artists are responsible for any sales of their artwork. Anything not for sale must be marked as Not For Sale (NFS).

Deadline for submission will be September 5, 2019 at 11:59 PM central time.

 

Are you also interested in sharing ideas with other queer creatives or volunteering?

Please join us on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM for our bi-weekly meetings in preparation for the event. We’d love to have you! Send a message to thirdspacetx [op] gmail [punt] com for updates as to where we are hosting the next meeting.
