Open Call! Artist Residencies | Franconia Sculpture Park

One-Sheet Overview 2021.docx

APPLICATIONS OPEN! 2021 FELLOWSHIP + EMERGING ARTIST RESIDENCIES

Applications accepted through November 15, 2020

ABOUT FRANCONIA

Located 45 miles from Minneapolis/St. Paul in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, the traditional lands of the Wahpekute people, Franconia Sculpture Park (FSP) operates a 43-acre outdoor museum, an artist-in-residence work-exchange program, robust public programming, and expansive educational initiatives. 

FSP is a cultural anchor to the Twin Cities with a national reach into contemporary art communities and welcoming over 150,000 annual visitors. The program and facilities promote a collaborative community, foster new work and intellectual exchange, offer exhibition and presentation opportunities, and provide artists with exposure to the Twin Cities. We encourage experimentation and knowledge-building–whether artists seek to redefine process, reflect social and cultural contexts of our time, or push conceptual or material boundaries.

Franconia provides an inclusive communal residency experience where selected artists live on-site at our 4500 sq.ft. farmhouse. Our facility includes nine private bedrooms, 2.5 shared bathrooms, two kitchens, and common spaces for building lasting connections among peers. We provide food, laundry facilities, utilities, and WIFI for artist use. Franconia work facilities include an outdoor 10,000 square-foot work pad and woodshop with dedicated equipment for sculptural fabrication; a shared flex space; a Skutt kiln with Zone 10 capability; and access to public spaces at Franconia Commons; including a café, gift shop, and exhibition space. The picturesque rural setting and the chance to work along-side peers, mid-career artists, and visiting art curators create a dynamic setting for critical, technical, and professional growth within a collaborative exchange model.

Franconia’s 2021 theme is Authority, Visibility, and Public Space.

Artist applicants are encouraged to interpret this theme with regard to their project proposals–priority will be given to those applicants who do so.

Applications close November 15, 2020 |  Notifications will be sent in mid-December. 

Application Fee is $25; $15 for Alumni.

Applications can be found at https://franconia.submittable.com/submit.

EMERGING ARTIST RESIDENCY

For 25 years, Franconia Sculpture Park has upheld a long-running work exchange model that equally cares for artists and organizational sustainability. While offering professional support and growth to emerging artists, reciprocally, the 43-acre sculpture park receives site and operational support with the help of Emerging Artist Residents. The program began with the park’s founding in 1996 and has grown to support nearly 1000 artists to date. Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as emerging artists, are invited to apply and the application is open to local, national, and internationally based artists.

Emerging Artist Residents have the opportunity to develop their artistic practice, receive mentorship from Fellowship artists-in-residence, receive production support from site managers upon request and pending availability; receive valuable professional development opportunities such as access to visiting curators; studio visits, field trips; public talks; workshops; and the potential to revisit Franconia as an alumni member. Selected Emerging Artists are invited to create a work of art to be included in the rotating outdoor exhibition at Franconia Sculpture Park for at least eight months. In exchange for housing, meals, and studio space, Emerging Artists commit to working for Franconia Sculpture Park from 830am to 1 pm, five days a week plus occasional events, up to 30 hours a week. Residencies last between two to three months dependent on schedule. More about the Emerging Artist Residency at franconia.org/project/emerging-artist-program/.

Lane County Arts Convening #4 (FREE)

The Sustainability / Audience Engagement Connection
Tuesday, September 15th, 4-5:30pm
This event is free.
Since the closure of venues in March, the regular audience engagement strategies many cultural organizations employ have been rendered useless. But some organizations are reversing this trend, and engaging with their audiences in new and meaningful ways. In this session, strategic advisor Ron Evans will facilitate a conversation about some of the innovations we are seeing coming from cultural organizations around the world during the pandemic. We will discuss how the leaders of these cultural organizations are strengthening relationships, launching new products and services, and preparing to be even more sustainable when venues reopen. Ron will be sharing what he’s found to be the #1 most effective strategy for engaging audiences during the pandemic, and you will explore how to apply this concept directly to your organization, your audience, and your sustainability efforts. Please submit questions in advance via the registration form for this event, so we can make sure to include answers during the session.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Maude Kerns Art Center Presents

Fast Forward: The Mayor’s Teen Art Show

The 21th Annual

With New Acquisitions:

Selected Works by Maude I. Kerns

September 4 – 25, 2020

 

The Maude Kerns Art Center is honored to present the 21st annual Fast Forward: The Mayor’s Teen Art Show and New Acquisitions: Selected Works by Maude I. Kerns, opening on Friday, September 4 and on view through September 25. The Title Sponsor for the 2020 “Mayor’s Teen Art Show” is the Susi Larsen & Cameron Serbu Memorial Scholarship Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation. Mayor Lucy Vinis selects the Mayor’s Choice Award winner. The “Mayor’s Teen Art Show” jurors, artists and art educators Krista Raasch, Christopher St. John, and Barbara Counsil, choose additional award winners. All awards will be announced on Friday, September 11.

This year’s Fast Forward: The Mayor’s Teen Art Show features 31 teen artists from 11 schools. The selected artists display work in a wide variety of mediums, including watercolor, acrylic, and oil paintings, papier mâché sculptures, glass, wood, and textile works, graphite, ink, and ebony pencil drawings, digital art, linoleum prints, mixed media, and photography.

Nevaeh Bahler, 13, from Monroe Middle School, displays five works using different media. One striking piece of digital art titled Imagine is an image of a young Black girl set against a vivid purple background. Nevaeh expresses the important role that imagination plays in her artwork: “Art gives me the opportunity to get away from reality, think outside the box, and express my feelings. When I create I feel like I’m being taken to a different world, of just me and my creative thoughts.”

  

Nic E. Hampton, 19, from California College of Arts and Crafts, exhibits two glass pieces and three mixed media works in this year’s “Mayor’s Teen Art Show,” including a moving mixed media acrylic painting titled Hope. Nic, who loves the complexity of art, asks herself three questions before she begins creating: “What do I want to say? Why do I want to say it? and Why should it exist in the world?” Once she answers these questions, she says, “I can then start to think about what material and form will best convey my feelings.”

Cailin Stewart, 15, from South Eugene High School, shows one abstract painting and four digital photographs in the 2020 “Mayors’ Teen Art Show,” including a mysterious black and white photograph called Girl Looking Through. Cailin, a triplet, found her individuality through photography and painting. She says, “When I paint, I find inspiration in the world around me…. My photography is another way to provide a view of the world through my emotional lens.”

New Acquisitions: Selected Works by Maude I. Kerns is exhibited in the Maude I. Kerns Salon Gallery. It is partially sponsored by Marion Sweeney and dedicated to Leslie Brockelbank, the great niece of Maude Kerns. The exhibit features 18 pieces which have never been exhibited before. They are among a larger body of works on paper given to the Art Center by Leslie Brockelbank’s daughter, Mary Jane Griffiths, who sent her donation to the Art Center from her home in New Zealand. Largely non-objective, the work includes studies, prints, and paintings on paper.

The Maude Kerns Art Center is adhering to all State of Oregon and Oregon Health Authority guidelines.  Both exhibits can be viewed in person and online at www.mkartcenter.org. Artwork may also be purchased through the Art Center’s website.

The Maude Kerns Art Center, located at 1910 E. 15th Avenue at the corner of 15th and Villard, is Eugene’s first non-profit community center for the visual arts.

The Vulnerability Project Journal Release!

We are a group of students from the Student Health Advisory Committee
(SHAC). As many of you know, we recently started The Vulnerability
Project, in which we collected student-submitted art pieces for our
journal. We are excited to announce the release of our journal, and we
invite you to come take a look!

Vulnerability is something everyone experiences when it comes to mental
health and wellness, but with vulnerability we are also able to harness
and strengthen bonds we have with loved ones and forge new ones with
those around us. This is even more important during the COVID-19
pandemic. While we may be separated from one another, this project
reminds us to stay connected. One way we can bring us together is by
sharing the art we make together.
To celebrate the release of the journal we will be hosting a
release party via Zoom. It will be on Monday, June 1st, from 5pm to 6pm
PST. We will be celebrating with a game and discussions about
vulnerability. Zoom meeting link: https://uoregon.zoom.us/j/96714080709
The journal has been posted on our website here:

This is a great opportunity for graduates who are figuring out where they would like to move after graduation, particularly with not being able to visit the city in person!

We would appreciate any help to get the word out to our graduating Ducks! Grads can sign up using this link: https://app.brazenconnect.com/a/oregon/e/4A961.

Summer Term 2020, August 17- 30

Instructor: Colleen Choquette-Raphael

Camille Henrot

 

This two-week studio course will celebrate the theory of the carnivalesque through an exploration of how artifacts act as mediators of experience.

 

Narratives of the collection, the archive, and readymade will be the primary focus of the class. The 2013 Venice Biennale’s Encyclopedic Palace and art movements such as Fluxus, Arte Povera and The Situationist International will also serve as platforms from which we will operate.

 

Strategies explored: Any work that involves interaction with a found/existing object or image. Various manipulations of imagery and ephemera: montage/collage, artists’ books, games, video, photography, assemblage, small-scale installation and performance.

 

Course will be conducted remotely, engaging students through prompts, lectures,

readings and online meetings. No prerequisites.

UO Student Food Resources

The Food Security Task Force continues to work hard to provide students with the support they need during these unsettled times.

Basic Needs Page – Food: https://blogs.uoregon.edu/basicneeds/food/
We are now using the Basic Needs Blog to keep students up to date on available programs and services. We’d like to draw students’ attention to SNAP resources. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides eligible folks with money for groceries. Right now, because of COVID-19, SNAP benefits are maximized, meaning that individual students can receive at least $190/month. The state of Oregon is particularly supportive of students, undergraduates in particular. The Basic Needs blog now has a series of videos that can help students learn about SNAP and enroll. These videos are produced by students at the Student Sustainability Center and the Duck Nest, who are also holding remote drop-in support hours.

Survey – Where are you and what do you need? https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5zD3Z9hvTseRfnv
In an effort to support our students with targeted programming, we are conducting a survey to find out where students are and what their needs are. This essential survey will allow the task force to develop and enhance food security programs for all of our students. Please share the survey widely.

Finally, our website, https://foodsecurity.uoregon.edu continues to be updated with information about the availability of food security programs in and around campus. Please check frequently.

Vulnerability Project

Hi, my name is Sydney, and I am a member of the Student Health Advisory
Committee (SHAC). We recently launched the Vulnerability Project, an
online blog/journal that is meant to facilitate discussion that
encourages students to find empowerment through the act of being
vulnerable and open with the ones they care about. Especially during
times like this, it is important to continue a dialogue about this topic
and create a sense of comradery within our community.

We are currently accepting student submissions that help demonstrate
what vulnerability means to them. These submissions can come in various
forms, including photographs, short stories, art, movies, poems, music,
etc. Furthermore, students who submit something have a chance of winning
$200!

Call for artists

Five Oaks Museum Gender Euphoria Call for Artists

Call
for Artists: Five Oaks Museum is accepting submissions for
Gender
Euphoria

Five
Oaks Museum
’s upcoming exhibition,
Gender Euphoria: Contemporary
Art Beyond the Binary
, will feature artworks
by gender non-conforming artists who explore feelings of joy, bliss, elation, and delight in their experience of gender-queerness.
Gender Euphoria
opens July 9, 2020 at the museum and on their digital platforms.

The
exhibition’s title uses the phrase “gender euphoria,” which circulates in queer and trans communities in reference to feeling affirmed and ecstatic in one’s gender expressions. The term is a retort to “gender dysphoria,” a medicalized term that comes from
outside these communities, and is used to name distressing feelings that some people experience in relation to their bodies, often related to socially conditioned binary expectations of gender and sex. Gender euphoria describes the moments, experiences, and
expressions that make one feel seen, comfortable, and exultant in our gender expressions. This exhibition will present the diverse lived experiences of contemporary artists who identify outside the gender binary by including artworks that explore the various
ways gender euphoria is experienced.


The
museum invites submissions from artists who:

    • identify outside of the gender binary, including
      but not limited to trans*, two-spirit, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, and non-binary.

  • live and work in the Pacific Northwest,
    here defined as Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Idaho, and Northern California.

BIPOC
artists, artists experiencing disabilities, and other artists who are often underrepresented in museum exhibitions are strongly encouraged to apply. We acknowledge that the gender binary is a cultural construct rooted in colonial violence. This exhibition
recognizes that genderqueerness has existed in many indigenous communities since time immemorial. 

Submission
is free, and selected artworks will be exhibited July through October at the Five Oaks Museum in Portland, OR, on unceded Kalapuyan land. Selected artists will receive a stipend of $50 for their participation in the exhibition. 

If
you are interested in exhibiting your work in
Gender
Euphoria
, please use the link below to submit
3-10 artworks in any media that are relevant to the theme of gender euphoria. The deadline for submission is April 19, 2020. If you are interested in doing a performance, programming, or site-specific installation at the exhibition, please note this in your
submission and include images of past performances. 

https://forms.gle/ZtHp927ezgB7y6hg6

More
information about the exhibition is posted on the Five Oaks Museum website at
https://fiveoaksmuseum.org/exhibit/gender-euphoria/.
If you have any questions about the exhibition or call for artists, or any accommodation needs, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Guest Curator, Becca Owen, via email at

Community Outreach Project

My name is Michael Rzemieniecki.

I can be contacted at

Rzemie@gmail.com for emails.

I am a nurse working at Sacred Heart Medical Center University District. I work specifically in the Emergency Department and I am a member of the Unit Based Council(UBC) for the department. In a meeting with the administrative team I had suggested we reach out to create murals for the rooms in the Secure side of the Emergency Department. This would be volunteer work in which the hospital could provide necessary supplies for the students.

The Secure side of the Emergency Department can be summed up as a crisis stabilization area for psychiatric emergencies. The reasons patients arrive here are incredibly varied but the common thread running through all of them is they are all experiencing a dark moment.

The secure side serves an essential function for all types of people, including U of O students, children, elderly, and the homeless. It keeps them safe when they have been determined to be unsafe. This can be that they are in danger because of their situation but often it is when a patient is unsafe with themselves. This can include patients who are actively suicidal, having suicidal ideation, drug or alcohol problems, are experiencing general depression or a slew of other mental health emergencies. I genuinely believe our staff does their best to comfort the patients in this time but visually, the first sight of the department is often times shocking and traumatic. The walls are off white with white speckled floors and may contain a large chair, a side table, and always, a sleeping mat. Patients cannot have their belongings in this room in order to keep them safe. One of the 12 rooms has a TV. Otherwise, patients are left in a small white room, alone with their thoughts (and either a book/magazine, radio, and/or paper and pencils and occasional interactions with staff) after a very traumatic event or in the midst of a very unstable or dark state of mind.

The current director for the Emergency Department is someone who prioritizes improving mental health care at our facility and has already instated many policies to create a more comforting environment. We feel that students would be so much better suited to complete this project rather than contracting an artist.

Our next UBC meeting is on March 10th. If the students could submit ideas by that date, I could present them to administration.
