The Queens Museum is pleased to announce the second iteration of the Queens Museum-Jerome Foundation Fellowship Program for Emerging Artists in New York City. The program awards three visual artists a grant of 20,000 USD each, professional development consultations and close mentorship from Queens Museum staff, including Director of Exhibitions/Curator Hitomi Iwasaki, all aimed at the realization of an artist’s project. The fellowship begins in March 2016 and culminates in an exhibition at the Museum in March 2017. Works resulting from the 2014–15 fellowships are currently on view in Catalyst: New Projects by Meredith James, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Casey Tang through February 28, 2016.

Fellowship eligibility is limited to emerging visual artists living in the five boroughs of New York City. The Queens Museum defines an emerging artist as one who is at the dawn of their public career. The eligible artist has completed his or her studies, but has not had solo exhibitions at established commercial galleries or institutions or received major grants. The category also includes artists who are well beyond their studies, and may have participated in group exhibitions but have not received extensive press or market recognition. These artists may have exhibited their work in other countries on a limited basis, but have not had major exhibition opportunities in the US or in New York in particular.

A three-member jury will review applications and make final selections. The jury will consist of Queens Museum Director of Exhibitions and two other arts professionals, one of whom will be based outside of New York City.

2016 PLACE Arts & Healing Workshop Series — Applications Due: December 15

http://www.aplaceofherown.org/APLACESocialServiceInitiative.html

2016 PLACE Arts & Healing Workshop Series
Applications Due: December 15
The 2016 Place Workshop Series is presented by Asian American Women Artists Association (AAWAA) under the direction of Cynthia Tom and Dr. Trinity Ordona and with the support of CAMERON HOUSE, San Francisco.

This semester-long workshop series is for women ready to ignite their creative selves and take ownership of their happiness. No art experience is necessary, only the willingness to learn.

We work towards creating an artistic answer to this question by unraveling beliefs that hold women back, excavating family patterns, discovering aspirations, and intuitively creating art through use of found objects.
