The Artists in the Community grant program, funded by the New York State Council on the Arts, awards grants to individual artists to support the creation of new work within a community context. For 2009 CCAC will award grants to two Allegany County artists in the amount of $2,250 each. This unique, competitive, peer-reviewed grant program encourages artists of any discipline to forge relationships with community members throughout the various stages of developing new work. The goal of this grant program as defined by NYSCA is “to support the creative work of individual artists in all disciplines at the local level while encouraging interaction between artists and community members to highlight the role of the artist as a community resource.” The Cattaraugus County Arts Council seeks proposals of high-artistic merit that will create the opportunity for the artist and a community to work in tandem and collaboratively in the art creation process. Proposals will be evaluated based on creative evaluative criteria as well as the level and degree of artistic and creative growth the project provides for the individual artist. Artists working in all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Projects may include site-specific works, installations, and any other events or activities in which the community can participate in some manner.

Fine Art Show Presents Opportunity for Arizona Artists to Display Work

The Gilbert Visual Art League (GVAL) invites Arizona artists to submit their original artwork for the 6th Annual Fine Art Show. The show is hosted at the Gilbert Historical Museum in Gilbert, AZ and will be available for public viewing from November 8 through 22, 2008. The show is judged and juried, includes all mediums and subject matter, and features a non-juried, youth division. This is GVAL’s second Fine Art Show for 2008. The league chose to move the show date to November so they could coordinate with the Town of Gilbert’s annual Gilbert Days celebration. Many of the club members are Gilbert residents so the change seemed like a natural choice. Awards will be presented at the show reception on November 16, 2008. Ribbons are awarded to the top three works in each category. In addition, a cash prize is given to Best of Show and Peoples Choice winners. Renowned painter, John Cox, will judge the show. Cox has more than thirty years fine-art experience and has hosted many solo and two-man shows. Artists interested in submitting work can download the official call for entry at the Gilbert Visual Art League website http://www.gval.org/. All entries must be postmarked by September 27, 2008. Acceptance letters will be mailed starting on October 10, 2008. The Gilbert Visual Art League’s goal is to create a venue for local artists to show their work and be recognized for their talents. The league strives to increase artistic awareness and appreciation in their community and surrounding areas. If you would like more information about the GVAL 6th Annual Fine Art Show, or to schedule an interview please call Jasmine Holmes, at 480.219.9069 or email at newsletter@gval.org.
