Overview
The Emerging Visual Artist Intensive is an immersive program of feedback, connection and mentorship for artists in the early stages of their careers. Participants will continue their practice from home, while being part of an online community of emerging artists each committed to developing and expanding their practice.  In addition, participants will receive a stipend to support the development of their work.

What does the program offer?
This online program will provide a discursive forum for visual artists to explore ideas in relation to their work, communities, geographic locations, and current societal conversations. Participants will form an online community of peers; share previous work with each other and continue work already in progress; partake in online studio visits; participate in conversations, presentations, and workshops; and engage with faculty and each other to develop ideas, insights, and connections that can be applied to the theoretical and practical development of their practice.  Please see the Itinerary section for an approximation of the program schedule. 

Who should apply?
This residency is for emerging artists who have completed university level training in visual arts (preferably within the last five years), hold an active exhibition record of at least two years in length, and/or show evidence of dedication in their pursuit of an artistic career.

Collectives of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

What Length of Residency is Available?
This program requires a dedicated commitment over a period of 3 weeks with the understanding that absence from weekly synchronous activities will be minimal and cannot be made-up.

2021 Mini Print-by-Mail Publication Program

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Tuckamore Press is seeking applications for our Mini Print-by-Mail Publication Program. We wish to partner with artists from across Canada and internationally to publish fresh ideas through an innovative combination of online collaboration and socially distanced print-by-mail. We invite professional visual artists, regardless of printmaking experience, to apply. 

Overview

Our print-by-mail publication program pairs artists with a professional printer to produce an edition of intaglio prints. We supply the plates, paper, expert printing, guidance, postage fees and promote your work on our website and through social media. In exchange, the artist and Tuckamore Press split the edition 50/50.

All artists are welcome to apply; however, artists are responsible for supplying their own tools. While drypoint is the preferred means of platemaking, artists are welcome to use etching, aquatint or other means at their personal disposal. We are happy to provide technical and creative guidance along the way and to provide proofs as you develop your image. The artist is expected to dedicate the time needed to complete the work within two months of beginning the project. At the end of this period, Tuckamore Press will edition the print.

The Publisher

Tuckamore Press is a printmaking studio located in Port Moody, BC, that strives to connect the public with exciting art through finely crafted traditional printmaking. We offer classes by mail, custom printing of intaglio plates, collaborative print services, consulting, press maintenance and repair, and tools and supplies for artists. Chris Dunnett is the owner and printer at Tuckamore Press. With over a decade of experience in printmaking, Chris has worked across North America as a professional printer, educator and artist.

SOLITUDE

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Solitude can elicit either a sense of euphoria or peace, or a sense of confinement or punishment, while others are isolated in a community unit. As we move forward into the fall and winter months, and COVID continues to impede our movements and interactions, how do we, as individuals, or as members of a larger, even worldwide community, process these survival confinements? As artists, we can use our medium to express the inner joy, conflict, frustration, sadness or peace we find ourselves confronting. ARC is searching for your creative endeavors as a reflection of your process under the current circumstances, keeping artists alone but pulling together into a community. All media is accepted, including video, performance and sound; and all artists’ work will be considered. The exhibition will run from Jan 8 thru Feb 27, 2021. This time frame is equal to two ARC Gallery exhibition months – so more opportunity for your work to be viewed! 

Entry fee: $40 for one to three images. $10 for each additional image (lower charge for students — High school or college students can pay a reduced fee of $25 per 3 entries with $10 for each additional entry (Please include copy of Student ID)). If paying by check, it must be received prior to jurying.

Virtual Opening Reception, Saturday, Jan 9, 4:00-5:00pm

Exhibition dates: Jan 8 – Feb 27, 2021

Gallery hours: Fri – 3-7 pm, Sat & Sun – 12-4 pm

Exhibition contingency plans:

At this time, we plan to have an actual exhibition at the gallery. There will be no in-person opening, though we will have a Virtual Opening Event on Zoom. The gallery will be open with limited hours and visitor restrictions (until it is safe to do otherwise).

IF the city closes all businesses again, due to COVID-19, the gallery will be closed, but we will display the exhibition online, visible to everyone who visits our website. All artists will be identified, along with their work and artist statement; and we will send out a link to everyone on our mailing list, potentially 4000+ viewers.

The new (Temporary) Gallery hours are: Fridays, 3-7pm; Saturdays and Sundays, 12-4pm. Masks for all visitors are required and no more than 6 people will be allowed in the gallery at one time. (Hours subject to change.)

ABOUT THE JUROR: Danny Floyd is an artist, researcher, curator, and educator based out of Chicago. At the risk of confusion, his work seeks the narrow threshold between meaning and nonsense in text and images. Often at odds with neuro-normative conventions, he embraces divergent thinking through improvisation and the delightfully weird. He is the Exhibitions Director for ACRE and a Lecturer of Visual & Critical Studies and Sculpture at SAIC. Since 2013, he has been an active part of Chicago’s artist-run space community through two programs, Ballroom Projects and Adler & Floyd. He has held curatorial residencies with ACRE and Chicago Artists Coalition. He was also awarded the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation Curatorial Fellowship in 2017.
