Calling Syracuse Area Artists for 2016 Snow Show
40 Below's Public Arts Task Force (PATF) and The Redhouse Arts Center are collaborating to hold our fifth winter one-day pop-up art gallery. The show is designed to be a showcase of different artists from the Syracuse area, so we are looking for a variety of different styles.
The show will take place with a reception from 5:00-8:00 pm on Tues., Feb. 23 at The Redhouse Arts Center located at 201 S. West St., Syracuse.
We will be accepting submissions of two-dimensional artworks from artists in the Syracuse area. We will not accept submissions of video installations or sculpture. Due to space limitations, artists may only submit one work of art, and we cannot guarantee all submitted artwork will be included in the show. Admissions will be on a first come, first serve basis.
If you would like to submit your work to the show, simply drop off your work at the Point of Contact Gallery, 350 W. Fayette St., on Feb. 18 or 19 from 12:00-5:00 pm. Your work must be ready to hang at time of drop off and include your name, title of work, and materials.
Work will be available for pick up after the show on Feb. 25-27, 12:00-5:00 pm at the Point of Contact Gallery.
We will not handle any transactions; however you may sell art at the reception or leave your contact information to help you connect with a buyer. Any sold works may not be picked up by the buyer until after the exhibit has ended.Call for Entries: 2016 Light Work Grants in Photography
Light Work is pleased to announce the 2016 Light Work Grants in Photography competition. Three $3,000 grants will be awarded to photographers who reside within an approximate 50-mile radius of Syracuse. The recipients of these grants are invited to display their work in a special exhibition at Light Work, and their work will also be reproduced in Light Work's award-winning publication, Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual.
In its 40-year history, Light Work Grants have supported more than 110 artists, some multiple times. With the help of the regional grant, many artists have been able to continue long-term projects, purchase equipment, frame photographs for exhibitions, promote their work, collaborate with others, or otherwise continue their artist goals.
All applicants must reside in of one of the following Central New York counties: Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Schuyler, Seneca, St. Lawrence, Tioga, or Tompkins.
Three judges from outside the grant region will review the applications. Their decisions are based solely on the strength of the candidate's portfolio and completed application. Individuals who received this award in 2011 or earlier are eligible to re-apply. Full-time students are not eligible.
The deadline for the 2016 Light Work Grants is April 1, 2016. Apply today.Syracuse International Film Festival Seeks Local Films for SpringFest
