a smorgasboard of opportunities

Visual artists are invited to apply for RACC's 2011 artist fellowship, which will award $20,000 to one visual artist for a spring fellowship. "Review criteria for the Fellowship Award includes proof of sustained high artistic quality in the applican'’s work, as well as evidence of the applicant's involvement in the community and the importance of his/her work to the local culture." Artists must also be current physical residents of Multnomah, Clackamas or Washington counties. Applications are due April 6, 2011. Get more info on the RACC website.

The RACC is also seeking community input on arts education. Two of the three surveys are still open: Artists & arts organizations that currently provide K-8 education in the tri-county region must respond by February 14, and all other community members must respond by March 20. Get links to the surveys on the RACC website.

Tacoma, WA's Museum of Glass is seeking submissions for the juried auction in its second annual Red Hot Party. Although auction sales benefit the museum, there are three large cash prizes: $10,000 for the grand prize, $5,000 for the people's choice award and $5,000 for the artists' choice award. Submissions are due March 24, and must all be works of glass, of course. Learn more on the Museum of Glass website.

Love the outdoors? Signal Fire is seeking applications for their 2011 Outpost residency & backpacking retreat (see photos from 2010 here). There are two July sessions, each of which offers a week-long wilderness studio for local artists. Applications are due April 1, and you can fill 'em out here.

The University Club is seeking submissions for it's 2011-12 artist residency, which offers WA & OR residents a year to create work in a private studio, give workshops and lectures, etc. Applications are due March 18. Get the details on the UCP website.

The Froelick Gallery is seeking submissions for a juried group exhibition on an equine theme: "Across cultural boundaries and throughout history, few animals have carried as much symbolic weight as the horse. They can stand for unrestrained freedom and independence, loyalty, luxury and nobility, erotic potency...Froelick Gallery invites you to join the many artists who have taken the horse as their subject." All mediums will be considered and the show is this summer. Submissions are due by March 11. Learn more on the Froelick website.

Anka Gallery is seeking submissions for PXL, on the theme of pixels. The show is in April, but I don't know the deadline because the details are behind a registration wall on their website. Visit their website, or try emailing Chad Glass for more info.

Lewis & Clark College is seeking artwork submissions for their 2011 Gender Studies Symposium, which is this March. Works and further inquiries should be sent to gendsympart@gmail.com by February 18, and at some point you'll be able to find more info on the symposium here.

An Artist a Day is seeking participants. In April, 30 artists (one per day) will create work while an audience watches. At the end the work is auctioned, artists get a portion, and the rest of the proceeds by art supplies for Portland area classrooms. Entries must be received by February 21. Details here.

The McMinnville Sunrise Rotary is looking for submissions for the "Artists Village," an art show & sale this summer that includes cash prizes for a people's choice award. Submissions are due by March 15. Get the details here.

Members of the Whatcom Museum: They're seeking submissions (from members only) for Fate of the Forest: An Open Hanging. They're looking for artwork in any medium that interprets the Pacific Northwest forest. They're also offering a special artists' rate for membership. Submissions to the show are due by May 15, and you can get more details here.
