Winter Opportunities

The Littman Gallery has an open call for submissions to all PSU students. The exhibition will be juried by arts writer John Motley who will also be choosing a "best in show". The opening reception for the exhibition will be held January 17th and all submitted artworks may be dropped off at the gallery between December 4th and 6th and between January 8th and 10th during open hours.

For more information, contact littmanandwhite@gmail.com

On the subject of opportunities for students, Ryman Arts is offering full scholarships to college-level arts courses for high school students at the California State University, Fullerton and Otis College of Art and Design. If you know of any talented youngsters in the area, you should encourage them to apply. All accepted students will receive a full scholarship which includes tuition, art supplies, and access to field trips. The classes will begin January 5th, and the program will accomodate 60 students. The application deadline has been extended to December 14th. "This experience will build a pathway to higher education for participating students that may lead to future study at CSUF. We know how powerful the creative learning environment has been for our teens at Otis, and we are delighted that we now offer classes at both an independent college of art and design and a large public university with a major art school."

Further information and application materials can be found at http://www.ryman.org/

For artists and graphic designers with a particular fondness for the Yeti, The Arbor Lodge, a coffee and community space in North Portland, is seeking submissions for Wild and Woolly: A Sasquatch-Themed Art Show running mid-January through the end of February. The exhibition is open to Portlanders and supposedly, all mediums are accepted. They do stipulate, however, that artworks should be "ready for hanging" which leads me to believe that the "all mediums" spectrum has been reduced to the two dimensional world in this case. Pieces are due January 14, 2013 at The Arbor Lodge from 5-7pm. Cash prizes will be awarded ($200 for first place) at the closing of the exhibition based on public votes.

For any questions, please contact Ashley at alizzj@gmail.com.

Disjecta has launched their search for the next Curator-in-Residence for its 2013-2014 season. Supported in part by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation, this yearlong residency provides an opportunity for emerging curatorial talent to engage with a broad range of artists within Disjecta's 3,500-square-foot space. Disjecta is looking for someone who will take intelligent risks (I hope that's actually true!) while challenging themselves and their viewers. The selected curator will program five to six exhibitions and be awarded a small stipend. Proposals are due to Disjecta on Sunday, January 4, at midnight.
