Fabricated: An Exhibition of Wearable Art
Target Gallery
Torpedo Factory Art Center

Alexandria, VA
February 2, 2013 to March 3, 2013

Fabricated is an all-media exhibition featuring “wearable art," which refers to individually designed pieces of handmade clothing or jewelry created as fine or expressive art. While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement. It is open to all artists nationally and internationally.

A non-refundable $35 entry fee includes submission for 3 pieces of artwork - each work may include one image along with only one detail image per work. $10 for each additional entry over the initial three.

Work should be less than 15 feet overall (height + width + length), with no one dimension measuring more than 7 feet. Final measurements must be inclusive of frame, if applicable. Weight may not exceed 150 pounds. All entries must have been conceived and created by the artist submitting the work and must have been created within the last 5 years. All work selected must be ready for exhibit: 2D work must be framed with secure hanging devices; 3D work must be suitably prepared with instructions for installation. The gallery reserves the right to reject work that differs from submitted images.

Call for Artists: Connector, Port of San Diego Public Art

Deadline: January 15, 2013 (ONLINE)

Call for Artists
The Port of San Diego Public Art Office

San Diego, California
June/July 2014 (First Site Installation)

Connector is a new Port of San Diego (Port) public art project designed to encourage artistic investigation of Port tidelands in the development of a temporary large-scale artwork that will travel to locations on tidelands in San Diego, National City, Coronado, Chula Vista and Imperial Beach. The selected artist or artist team will create a dynamic, transportable artwork that transforms five unassuming spaces on tidelands in an imaginative and unexpected way.

This Call for Artists is open to professional, practicing artists in the United States and artists who currently hold proper visas allowing them to work in the United States. Proof of visa/work permit documentation may be requested for verification.

The goals of the Connector project are to encourage artistic investigation of the tidelands in the development of a large-scale, site-specific public artwork that:
• Is artistically compelling both aesthetically and conceptually;
• Exemplifies a dynamic approach to public space and human engagement;
• Transforms, adds to, or is fundamentally ensconced in unassuming spaces in the District’s five member cities in imaginative and unexpected ways;
• Is transportable and durable to withstand travel to multiple locations on the tidelands; and
• Creates connections and a series of evolving experiences along the tidelands, in support of the “public” public art creative direction.

The artist selected for the commission will collaborate with the Port on the conceptualization and realization of the artwork.

The artwork should be artistically compelling both aesthetically and conceptually with high visual impact. Through a dynamic approach to public space and human engagement, the artist will transform multiple tidelands environmental settings into new visual experiences that engage a broad audience in their daily lives. The artwork will translate into a series of evolving experiences that re-imagine the urban and related tidelands environs. Artists whose visual art practices include spatial inventions and/or installations are strongly encouraged to apply.

A specific site in each of the Port’s five member cities will be determined during the artwork development phase through a collaborative investigation of the tidelands by the artist and the Public Art Office. Examples of potential areas may include shoreline parks, buildings, infrastructure, and promenades.

The artwork will be on public view approximately fifteen months (three months in each member city). Artists will be expected to retrieve all components at the end of the project and may keep any materials purchased and/or fabricated as part of the commission budget and incorporated into the temporary artwork.

The selected artist will receive a $275,000 budget to conceive and realize their artwork, including concept and design development, fabrication as well as installation and de-installation at multiple sites. The budget is all inclusive and must cover all costs.

Please submit questions in writing to the Public Art Office at If questions lead to an addendum to this Call for Artists, the addendum will be posted on the Port’s website at

Manifest Artist Residency Award

Deadline: April 9, 2013 (ONLINE), (EMAIL) or (RECEIVE)

Manifest Artist Residency Award
Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Cincinnati, OH
2013/2014 Residency

Artists are invited to submit complete applications to Manifest's Manifest Artist Residency program (MAR). Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis.

The program is open for application by any serious emerging or established artist, including recent graduates from college art programs. It will benefit Manifest's community by providing exposure to the often unseen working space and practices of artists, serving to eliminate some boundaries to contemporary art making which currently may divide the everyday public from the fine visual arts.

The ideal candidate for the award of the program may be working in any media or genre, but would also make reasonable use of the available life-drawing sessions even if this is ancillary activity to their primary work. Suitability for teaching will be considered, but will not be a primary factor in the selection process.

One artist will be selected as the recipient of the MAR award which consists of the following:
  • Free 24/7 use of a private studio consisting of approximately five hundred square feet of studio and display space (two north-lit rooms and a hallway) for a period of one year (including nominal utilities).
  • Free Drawing League Membership at Manifest Drawing Center which provides access to approximately 250 hours of life drawing sessions through weekly Open Figure and quarterly Drawing Marathon offerings.
  • The artist will be given the consideration for teaching courses in our studio program, for pay, during the course of the residency. This will be contingent upon suitability and qualifications, as well as course enrollment, and will be determined by the Director of the Drawing Center.
  • Regular public exposure of artwork and studio during Manifest exhibit receptions to over 1500 members of the public.
  • The opportunity to submit to any and all of Manifest’s calls for entry for which the artist is eligible, including solo show proposals, with the entry fees waived for all submissions. Works submitted by the Resident Artist will still be juried through the blind jury process used for all Manifest projects.

The resident artist will be selected by a committee comprised of internal staff, board members, and academic/professional advisors.

Media/Genre: Open to artists working in any traditional and non-traditional genre and media.

Submission Fee: Each application must be accompanied by a $30 non-refundable submission fee.

SEASON 10 - 2013/2014

Solo, Two-person, Group and Concept Submissions

Manifest is eager to receive proposals of various types. And accepts these on an ongoing basis, reviewing them starting in early June in consideration for the upcoming season.

Eligibility: Anyone can submit a proposal. Artists should bear in mind the need for a consistent and very strong body of work when submitting.

Media/Genre: Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media. Manifest sets out to survey, locate, exhibit, and document excellent quality amongst all types of art. Our record of showing a broad mix speaks for itself. If it's good, we want to see it, and if possible show it.

Jury and Curator: Manifest's main selection process involves a complex two-part system. Most exhibits are juried by an anonymous 9-12 member panel of professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury then passes along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool. Solo proposals are handled in a similar but smaller scale way. While artists may provide a specific goal for an exhibit, the final selection and layout of works will be determined by a Manifest curator in consultation with the artist.

Types of proposals:

- Solo exhibits

- Two person exhibits

- Group shows

- Curatorial project (call for entries proposal by curator)

Submission Fee: Each proposal must be accompanied by a $30 non-refundable submission fee. Number of works is not limited.

Fabric Design Contest

Deadline: November 20, 2012 (ONLINE)

Fabric Design Contest
The Nasher Museum

Durham, NC
December 6, 2012

The Cone sisters (Claribel and Etta) were the beneficiaries of the Cone textile empire in North Carolina, and loved surrounding themselves with lush fabrics and textures. Their couches overflowed with pillows covered in multicolored fabrics; they collected fabrics and laces from around the world. Many of their beloved Matisse paintings also featured bright colors and bold patterns.

The Nasher Museum has partnered with Spoonflower, a Durham-based company, to hold a contest with the goal of designing a textile that would look at home in a Matisse painting (view examples in new window). Please do NOT recreate a textile in the images, but instead, create a new design with the color palette below. The top ten designs will be featured at a First Thursday and Art for All events at the Nasher Museum on Thursday, December 6, 2012.

For more information about the contest, and how to design, print and sell original fabric designs, visit Spoonflower.

Artist In Residence Program
Badlands National Park

South Dakota
Spring Residency (March 15 and May 15)
Fall Residency (September 15 and November 15)

The Artist in Residence program at Badlands National Park was founded in 1996 and is open to all professional artists. Writers, composers and all visual and performing
artists are invited to interpret this wind-swept environment through their work. The program provides time for artists to get away from everyday responsibilities to focus on their surroundings and their medium.

The park offers an apartment located in small housing complex at park headquarters at no cost to the artist. The residency lasts for a minimum of four weeks and a
maximum of six weeks. Additionally, the park provides a reimbursement for expenses not to exceed $300. Reimbursible expenses include supplies for school programs,
travel, or meals. All expenses incurred above $300 are the responsibility of the artist.

Several artists have been successful in seeking donations of supplies and materials from businesses or museums in their home communities prior to coming to Badlands
for their residency, using the reimbursement as matching funds.

Each artist is asked to contribute to the park a mutually agreed upon piece of original work representative of their stay in Badlands National Park within one year of completion of their residency.

Because of Badlands’ strong commitment to education and outreach into our rural school districts, all artists are required to present two sessions in a local school to introduce students to an aspect of art and its interpretation of their Badlands home.

We consider all forms of arts except those that manipulate or disturb the park’s environment or are disrespectful to any race or gender. Selections are made without regard to race, religion, marital status, sex, age, or national origin. The facilities for this program are not wheelchair accessible.

All applicants must submit: (truncated)
1. A resume and summary of creative works.
2. A statement of what they hope to gain from a residency at Badlands National Park and what they hope to incorporate into their classroom presentations.
3. Up to three choices of beginning and ending dates for their residency. Residencies are a minimum of four weeks, a maximum of six weeks, and must fall within the availability dates.

• Sew a 5 inch (12.5 cm) sleeve with a ½ inch give sewn on the back and mount the sleeve 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the top edge of the back of the quilt to enable a uniform display of all the quilts in the exhibition.
• Photographs: We can accept digital photos only. Images must be of completed work – not work in progress. Images will be chosen on the basis of artistic merit as well as photo quality.
• Each entry will require two digital images; one showing the whole quilt including the edges; the other showing an area in detail.

The residency is an opportunity for artists, designers, theorists, writers and curators to undertake a period of focused work at the HMC.

An important part of the creative process is taking time for renewal. Whether you are ready to explore a life-long passion, looking for inspiration or eager to take on a new challenge, HMC has a program designed to help you develop your creativity while experiencing another culture.

Each residency includes accommodation, working area, and access to all resources including workshops, library, etc. In selected instances, the residency may also include some basic materials stipend.

The Artist in Residence Program is open to all artists who wish to work independently on their own projects. Artists may use the residency to accomplish a specific project or to work in a creative and supportive atmosphere alongside other international artists.

Resident artists are able to exchange ideas and experiences through presentations and informal discussion.

Meals are the responsibility of the artists, either individually or communally.
