Major Jenkins Apts Art Project







Project Overview

Architreasures, an arts-based community development organization, along with our partner Mercy Housing, a comprehensive affordable housing provider, is seeking an artist(s) to develop interior artwork for the Major Jenkins Apartments, a supportive housing residence for individuals who have experienced or are at risk for homelessness. The Major Jenkins Apartments is located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood at 5012 N. Winthrop.

The overall goals of the Major Jenkins Art Project are to:

Create visually compelling and uplifting artwork that enlivens two common areas as part of the building’s renovation.

Incorporate a community informed practice in the development of the artwork with designs that connect with the experiences, needs, and interests of the building’s predominantly African American residents.

Collaborate with Mercy Housing to involve staff and residents in the refinement of design concept.

The selected artist(s) will design and produce artwork for 1 or 2 wall spaces within Major Jenkins located in the building’s front entryway and a community room. The artist fee for the project is $2,500-4,000 for the entryway (@50 sq/ft) and $5,000-8,000 (@105 sq/ft) for the community room, to be determined based on design proposal. Material and production expenses for the project will be established with Architreasures upon approval of final selected designs.

Post-Rustbelt: Living Between America




Post-Rustbelt: Living Between America seeks to capture the artistic experience of life in "Middle America" during the decades following the decline of industry (mid 1970's) to the turn of the Millennium. These rustbelt states are most often thought to include New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. 

We are seeking artwork representative of, but not limited to: industry decline, the disappeance of main street (and subsequent rise of hyper consumerism), general life (artistic, social, work, family, otherwise) caught between changes (i.e. holding onto a past way of life while searching for new identity), and/or juxtaposition of old and new.

Although regional in the nature of the content, the show is open to national artists who may have migrated away from the rustbelt, as this exodus is also an important aspect of the the Post-Rustbelt experience.   
Post-Rustbelt is Part One of a two-part series of  shows taking place in April/May 2021 at Vestige Concept Gallery, a new venture in the heart of Pittsburgh's most vibrant arts and entertainment neighborhood: Lawrenceville. Each of the shows will also appear in an online gallery format.

Call for artists: Expanded Drawing



The Concept

AIR Gallery, Altrincham, invites establishing and emerging artists of all disciplines to consider and submit artworks centered around what drawing is today. 

Drawing has always been used as a tool to slow down and observe. Challenging the pre-conceptions of a drawing in contemporary art. Everything has to begin somewhere and even with a mark, can drawing expand out both physically between and across mediums? Is drawing more than just marks on a page? Is the act/action of drawing just as important? How can we expand the notions of drawing through painting, sculpture, performance and social contexts? 


We are looking for drawing based practices or works that center around these questions. Considering the ideas of Expanding drawing, what can and cannot be a drawing today in both 2D and 3D contexts. The show aims to entice conversation and narrative of drawing on and off the page in creative and imaginative ideas into the gallery space where the space between thoughts and the physical gesture question drawings role today.

  • This open call is only open to UK Artists

KLATCH 2.0 Residency




Shift is pleased to support Klatch in their upcoming curatorial residency.

In their time at Shift, Klatch will be developing their own practices alongside developing curatorial skills and building relationships with other artists.

Klatch is extending an invitation to artists working within the Cardiff/South Wales area to take part in a 2 week residency with the collective in SHIFT Cardiff.

This is not an invitation to be part of our collective, just to join us in a residency.

Deadline: 4PM, 29.07.19

Residency: 05.08.19 - 18.08.19

Closing Event: 16.18.19


Klatch was initially formed with the aim of celebrating our own distinctive approaches to
contemporary painting through curation that prompts critical discussion about what it means to
be a painter today. Our residency at Shift will offer other artists’ the opportunity to engage,
discuss, provoke and challenge each other within a shared space; a place to network, develop
practices’ in response to others, and to gain an understanding of working within an
interdisciplinary environment. We are welcoming artists from all disciplines to explore their
practice through sharing work with others, allowing others to experience in-progress/completed
works, and exploring contemporary practices through curation.
Within this residency, we aim to explore how each of our practices relate to each other and reveal
the different relationships that exist between contemporary practices. The space will be ever-
evolving as the artists participating in the residency will be collaborating together, and over the
course of the two weeks we will be inviting the public to join us for discussion.
