INFORMATION of the Artist in Residence Program in Hungary
http://www.bszechy@yahoo.com

deadline 3/25/2008 INFORMATION of the Artist in Residence Program in Hungary International Artist Residencies, Budapest/Balatonfured/A.I.R. Dates: Tuesday, May 20 - Thursday, June 12; Thuesday, June 17 - Thursday, July 10; Tuesday, July 15 - Thursday, August 7, 2008 Hungarian Multicultural Center, Inc. (HMC) is an award winning 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting international art and the understanding of world cultures, through high quality art exhibitions, cultural exchanges and related educational programs. Based in Dallas and Budapest, the organization operates throughout the world. Incorporated in 1990, HMC has already received awards for artistic merit from the Hungarian National Art Found and Embassy of the United States of America, Budapest among others. The HMC's projects (exhibitions, seminars, lectures, and educational programming) focus on international art works as embodiments of individual artist's visions, which are understood to be informed--to a varying extent--by personal, local and global cultural influences on the artist. AIR is an international meeting point for the arts. Its aim is to support and encourage contemporaryartistic creation, research and debate. One of HMC's main activities is its Artist in Residence Program. The purpose of this program is to offer a platform to promote the exchange of artistic discourses from artists with different artistic backgrounds and from different geographical origins. The program is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas in order to broaden creative horizons. By encouraging this cultural diversity, we also hope to be able to update the debate between the artists themselves and between other professionals from the art world and the general public. HMC considers art as a dynamic social force that is capable of inspiring individuality and of defining groups. Our Artist in Residence Program also includes exhibitions, artist talks, film, workshops and other activities. HMC is planning and exchange program with other European Artist in Residence Program, so that the resident artists would be able to get in touch with other artistic centers. The current problems that have arisen from a lack of understanding of the varying cultures around the world today and it becomes even more apparent that HMC's projects address a number of very important needs. Visual art -- one of the few languages that transcends all boundaries -- offers a way to understand not only ourselves and one another, but it offers a venue for greatness, which must be supported if we as a civilization are to move forward. This is HMC's goal. After our 10 years anniversary we have published a book. The book includes all artists at the HMC's residencies, ntroductory by Dr. Geller Katalin-art historian. The book cost $16.00 + shipping and handling $4.00. The HMC invites interested visual artists and writers to submit application for its residency programs in Hungary. Its principal focus is an international residency program to which artists from around the world are invited. The goal is to provide a supportive community with uninterrupted time to work. The residencies offer participants a unique opportunity to interact with other artists representing a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Accepted applicants are expected to speak and understand English. Approximately 12 - 12 (total 36) artists are invited for each section. The residence offers 2 beds per room/bath as living quarters. Studio, room, breakfast and lunch, transportation to Balatonfured, exhibition and site seeing are included in the cost $1,550 (EURO$1,050). Artist must share the studio with other artists. Exhibition: The location of the exhibition and the final final contents of donated work must be decided after due consultation between the program director and the artist. If successful applicant wish to be accompanied by family members or an assistant, it is necessary to consult with HMC beforehand. Expected artists are give at least one informal public slide presentation about their work during their stay at the HMC and to leave one piece of work made during the residency as a donation to the HMC. Exhibition will be arranged. Also, we are organizing an exhibition for the 2006, 2007 participants at Vizivarosi Gallery, Budapest in June-July 2008. While HMC does not provide funding for residencies, we are helping to facilitate the creation of programs and support the cost of the exhibitions.

What is a theme camp and how do you make one happen? Learn all about them. Please note that this is also the place to apply to bring a sound system to the event. There is a limited capacity for sound systems at the event, and sharing is highly encouraged. Limited Space Apogaea has limited space for theme camps, so it is important to register ahead of time. Each registered theme camp will be assigned to a reserved area based on their individual needs. The earlier you register, the better chance you have of getting suitable placement. If you do not register your theme camp, it does not mean you won't be able to do it; however, you may end up very far from central areas, on uneven ground, or in an area with a lot of underbrush. Deadline for submissions is Midnight of May 31st 2008.

http://www.pastelsocietyofcolorado.org/documents/2008_PSC_Spring_Show_...

Our Spring Members' Show will be at Art on Mountain Gallery in Fort Collins! The show will run from June 5 through June 17, 2008. The Reception falls on Fort Collins' 'First Friday Art Walk' and people in the area are already used to galleries and shops being open on these nights so we expect a large crowd! We would like to expand the event to have a few artists doing demos outside. The Art on Mountain Gallery will be accepting shipments of work for the show, which should make things easier for some who live farther away (see prospectus for details). We are honored to have CLIVE TYLER, nationally acclaimed pastel artist, judging the show this year!
