Now that you have recovered from the holidays, its back on the horse! Below is a list of opportunities I think are good for your health (and your career)...

These works will be on display throughout the public spaces of King County's new office building, located in downtown Seattle. Artists who would like their work considered for purchase must submit images of existing available artwork for the panel's review. This project is open to all professional artists residing in the U.S.

The concept of this one is great. If anyone does this residency, please report back. I would love to hear someone's firsthand experience.
Elsewhere, a living installation and art production space in downtown Greensboro, NC, is seeking artists-in-residence for its Spring, Summer, and Fall 2007 residency season. Set within a former thrift store housing a 58-year inventory of American surplus, thrift, and antiques, Elsewhere invites artists-in-residence to utilize the immense collection of objects to pursue site-specific material, conceptual, and/or technologically-based projects. Elsewhere's building--two full stores on the ground level, a 14-room boarding house on the second, and warehouse on the third--provides dynamic architectures for the creation and installation of works. Artists live and work within changing installations, engaging interactive environments for re-conceptualizing the theory and practice of art-making.
