"Getting Into MY Good Trouble Continuing the Legacy of Congressman John Lewis”
Atlanta Quilt Festival

Southwest Arts Center
South Fulton, GA
August 2, 2024 to  August 25, 2024

In 2024 the Atlanta Quilt Festival will premier “Getting into MY Good Trouble — Continuing the Legacy of Congressman John Lewis”, the final exhibit in the trilogy designed to honor the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis. Congressman Lewis represented the Georgia 5th Congressional district where the Atlanta Quilt Festival is based. In addition to his great work in the Civil Rights Movement, he loved quilts. The quilts will capture in cloth the work that remains to be done to continue to work toward the beloved community. 


John Lewis made America a better place to live, and his work benefitted all Americans. Part 3 of the trilogy seeks quilts that express how we may continue his legacy. Progress has been made, but there is much that remains to be done. What change do you think is needed to make the world a better place? It could involve voting, sports, education, housing, money, equal rights, abortion, criminal justice reform, etc. Imagine the beloved community and think about what issue would get you off your couch and catapult you into action. We must learn to tell our own stories, and every story is important. You may also want to read John Lewis’s book “Carry On – Reflections For a New Generation” to inform your creativity. We must learn to tell our own stories, and every story is important.


Your quilt should not be larger than 60 inches wide. It must be a fiber quilt with a label and a four-inch sleeve on the back. All techniques welcome. It must be delivered to the Atlanta Quilt Festival by June 1, 2024 and be available for display until September 8, 2024. The exhibit may travel in 2025.

Portraits, Poses and Tableaux Vivants

Core New Art Space
Lakewood, CO
July 12-24, 2024

A portrait can tell a story of someone at moment in time, of something happening around them. It could be the memory of someone lost to time and their sweet reflection. Images might suggest that a person was present because of what they left behind. A portrait might be the icons that tell the story of someone's passions, their pets or their personality. Perhaps it’s how they wish to be seen and remembered. We would like to see your take on the genre of portraiture, human or animal.

Core New Art Space invites all artists of any mediums, 2d & 3d (except video/installations). Entries must be submitted electronically by June 12th, 2024 and accompanied by a $35.00 fee (for up to 3 works).

Work must be no larger than 48” inches on its longest side, including frame. Work not within these parameters will be disqualified.

Womens Studio Workshop_Studio Workspace Residency

DEADLINE: May 15, 2024 (ONLINE)

Studio Workspace Residency
Womens Studio Workshop
Rosendale, NY
Length of residency: 4 - 6 weeks

Women’s Studio Workshop envisions a society where women’s visual art is integral to the cultural mainstream and permanently recorded in history.

Our mission is to operate and maintain an artists’ workspace that encourages the voice and vision of women and trans, intersex, nonbinary, and genderfluid artists. We provide professional opportunities for artists at various stages of their careers and promote programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.

The Studio Workspace Residency is an opportunity for artists to create new work and fully immerse themselves in WSW’s supportive environment. We invite applications from artists at any stage of their careers. This residency gives artists the gift of time, an uninterrupted period to live and work away from the stresses of daily life. Artists may choose to work in any one or more of our studios: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, darkroom photography, or ceramics.

Artists receive a thorough studio orientation and are expected to work independently, although studio staff is available to provide assistance. Deep technical assistance can be arranged for an additional fee. Artists must provide their own materials, some of which can be purchased from WSW.

As of 2019, all workspace residencies are fully subsidized! This means that while artists are still responsible for their own travel, materials, meals, and other personal incidentals while in residence, WSW provides housing and studio space at no cost.

Application must include:

  • A current resume
  • A brief description of your proposed project, including the studio(s) you’d like to use. 300 word maximum.
  • Up to ten images of recent work
  • An image script, which should include the title, medium, dimension, and date of each image

Nocturne: Art at Night


Nocturne: Art at Night

Halifax, NS
October 17 – 20, 2024

Nocturne is currently seeking artists to participate in our 2024 programming through the development of temporary public artworks that will be exhibited during the signature night-time art experience taking place on Saturday, October 19. Nocturne’s 2024 curator, Shuvanjan Karmaker, has selected the theme of Microcosm as a platform for artists to consider and share stories and to create connections around shared love, experiences, tragedies, and/or responsibilities.

Nocturne pays successful applicants an equitable CARFAC 2024 Fee Schedule, which includes material/production, accessibility, artist care, and travel.

• We encourage proposals that reflect Nocturne’s core values as an independent, non-commercial, and contemporary art festival.
• We encourage emerging artists, creatives, arts workers, and makers to apply.
• We aim to support efforts that are exploratory, challenging, and critical in nature.
• We encourage applicants to propose new work as well as projects that have been started or completed elsewhere.
We encourage artists in all mediums to apply.
• We seek to view applicants from a lens of equity and aim to create space for equal opportunities.
• We encourage proposals for interactive and engaging installations.
• We are committed to reducing barriers at our festival and do our best to ensure the venues and projects at Nocturne reflect those commitments.

We encourage all applicants to consider their relationship to the land; Nocturne is an opportunity and platform to re-imagine the spaces of our city, both built and natural, and to interrogate the systems and institutions that govern those spaces. It is also a platform to consider the lived and experienced cultural landscapes that make up our city. 

The land (and waters) where Nocturne takes place is Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral, unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship,” which Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples first signed with the British crown in 1725. It’s important that we say unceded and unsurrendered because acts that violate these treaties are happening every day here in Mi’kma’ki and all across Turtle Island. We are all treaty people, and Nocturne strives to uphold the relationships outlined in these treaties that govern this land. 

We also acknowledge the significant foundations that the infrastructure and culture of Black and African Nova Scotian communities have contributed and continue to contribute to this province and country. Nocturne continues to collaborate, amplify, and connect with the many art communities that live and work here in Mi'kma'ki. The Native Land Interactive Map is a great resource and educational tool for learning more about Indigenous territories, treaties, and languages.

For accessibility purposes, Nocturne will also accept proposals via phone, video, or audio file as needed by the applicant. Please get in touch via email at to arrange this submission type. This process will take approximately one hour, and it will include a recorded interview that takes place between an organizer or committee member and the applicant to go through each section of the application together. The conversation will be recorded and shared with the jury via video or transcription.
