Artist in Action
Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

In Association with the Smithsonian Institution
Dowell, MD
January 18-March 2, 2014

Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center seeks artists working in any media to submit proposals to set up a working studio space in the Main Gallery for 1-2 week periods. These studios will be set up much like a “booth,” utilizing the artist’s own supplies and equipment. Artists are expected to be present in their studio booth during the majority of their scheduled 1-2 week period (which must include at least one weekend). Artists are encouraged to sell artwork in their booths. The Annmarie Gift Shop will process all sales and retain a 25% commission. This call is open to all media.

In addition, artists are asked to create an activity for visitors, as simple or as complex as you wish, that will allow them to experiment with your materials and creative process. The size and complexity of the activity/project is up to you.

Through this program, artists are afforded an opportunity to work in free studio space in a beautiful setting. This is a perfect occasion for a serene retreat to immerse yourself in your artwork and to network with other artists.

Overnight accommodations for out-of-town artists are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Artists will set up in the spacious Main Gallery of Annmarie’s award-winning Murray Arts Building. With over 4200 sq ft of exhibition space, moveable walls, high ceilings, tile floors, and internet access, the Main Gallery can accommodate all sizes and types of studio booth spaces. Annmarie will also provide up to (5) 8-foot tables for each artist’s studio, as well as misc. partition walls and pedestals.

• all media types are welcome.
• The exhibition is open to all artists age 18 and older who are living and working in the United States.
• Proposals must include an artist’s statement & resume, a sketch and written description of the proposed studio setup, a brief description of your activity/project for guests, a short description of your artistic process, and a portfolio of at least 6 images of your most recent work.
• All art equipment that will be used during the living gallery must be supplied by the artist and approved by the Curator of Exhibitions. Annmarie will provide up to five - 8’ tables for your studio setup.
