USA Artist Funding, Mexico Artist Colony, and Contemporary Canadian Art Database

Today, I’ve decided to share a miscellaneous collection of resources that I’ve collected. If you would like more, click here.

An interesting artist funding organization, Franklin Furnace Fund, is based in Brooklyn New York. Franklin Furnace has annually awarded grants to emerging artists selected by peer panel review to enable them to produce major performance art works in New York.  Find the Franklin Furnace Submission Guidelines and Artist Application here.

The town of San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, has long been a colony of expatriate artists. Read more about the town here.

The Soap Factory, in Minnesota, will be accepting submissions this coming winter for their 2016 exhibition season.

Raid Projects is an artist-run contemporary art space and international artists residency in Los Angeles, California, USA.

 The CCCA Canadian Art Database Project is a work in progress with the overall objective of broadening public awareness of contemporary Canadian Art in Canada and internationally, and to document the careers of Canada’s leading professional artists, designers, art writers and curators, as well as some important Canadian art institutions and organizations that have helped shape the Canadian art scene since the 1960s.

The Clark Hulings Fund For Burgeoning Visual Artists: Deadline Sept 30th

The Clark Hulings Fund for Burgeoning Visual Artists helps early-stage professionals seize opportunities to drive their careers forward by providing targeted support at pivotal moments. The Fund strives to improve the prospects of up-and-coming individuals and enable many more people to encounter and be enriched by their work.

The Fund considers proposals from professional artists who have secured tangible prospects for advancing their careers but lack sufficient financial resources to capitalize on those opportunities. Examples include but are not limited to: the completion of work due to a gallery, museum, or private collection, the transportation of work or of the artist to an exhibition of that artist’s material, the management of logistical or technical requirements to realize a project, etc.

Who Should Apply?
Professional painters, sculptors and artists working on paper who: Employ traditional media, not including photography, film or video. Have had their work published and/or exhibited professionally. Have been hired or commissioned to create new work. Have received opportunities to exhibit their work.

Submission Requirements:
Fiscal Sponsor: The Fund cannot make awards to individuals.
Artist Statement
Request for Support, including a detailed proposal and images, if available
Examples of previous work
Resume/CV
Supporting materials, if relevant (letter of intent from a gallery, commission statement, referrals, references, etc.).

Review Process
A group of five panelists will review the proposals of qualified applicants and advise on specific grants to be made during each cycle. One of the five will be a director of the Fund, either Mary or Elizabeth Hulings. The other four will be members of the visual art community (i.e., artists, critics, curators, gallerists, publishers, scholars, private collectors, etc.). The goal is to have as broad a representation as possible.

Award Amounts and Cycle
The Fund aims to distribute its first award in November 2013. Beginning in 2014, two awards will be given per year, one in each category (1-painting, drawing and works on paper, and 2-sculpture). Grants will be given of up to $5,000, depending on the need stipulated in the request. Individuals who receive an award will not be eligible to apply again for five years.

Application submission window- September 1-30, 2013
