Entry Fee: $45/3 images

Juror: Zimou Tan. This is an opportunity to have your work selected by an Art Renewal Center Associate Living Master Artist who has exhibited his work widely both nationally and internationally and has been a master teacher for over twenty years, teaching how to capture the essence and spirit of a subject and tell stories in art to communicate emotion.

Entrants will have the opportunity to win one of three awards – $1200 Best in Show, $800 Second Place, or $400 Third Place and be invited to a future winners exhibition. Besides being shown in the gallery, all selected artists will have their work shown on the Mills Pond Gallery website.

About Mills Pond Gallery

Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. There are five gallery rooms and the facility can display an average of 60 works of art.

Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the circa 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater “centres” applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.

Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island and the hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.

About Las Laguna Art Gallery

Las Laguna Art Gallery is a contemporary and fine art gallery that features art from a diverse group of artists, representing a variety of mediums. They are dedicated to the exploration and engagement of contemporary and fine art visual culture through unique collaborations between artists, students, and the community. They make it a point to curate artwork that is interesting and engaging to the art collector, lover, and novice. Unlike most art galleries located in Laguna Beach, the gallery accepts work from artists outside of Laguna Beach. Since 2013, Las Laguna Gallery has held open calls for art, calls for entry, and calls for art opportunities for artists to promote and sell their art in a gallery. Each month they have a themed exhibition and works are promoted in the gallery, online, and to an extensive client list.

Quickly becoming one of the premier contemporary and fine art galleries in Laguna Beach, California; Las Laguna Gallery is dedicated to the exploration and engagement of contemporary and fine art visual culture – regionally, nationally, and internationally; through unique collaborations between artists, students, and the community.

Las Laguna Gallery is located on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Village. Laguna Village is an artist alcove on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This location is a must stop location with artist galleries and jewelry shops. The location features a restaurant, bar, and there is live music in the fire-side theater Tuesday through Saturday. The gallery is one of only three locations in Laguna Beach that offers an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean. It is a desired destination for art, live music, and food.

With more than 100 art galleries and artist studios to explore, you’ll come to understand why Laguna Beach is a beloved “art colony.” In fact, the area was discovered by artists. In the late 1800s, visitors were making an annual pilgrimage through the canyons to camp at Laguna Beach each summer. By 1903, painters like Norman St Clair were visiting from San Francisco, attracted to the landscape and light only found on the coast of Laguna. Like tourists of any era, St Clair returned home with glowing reports and landscape paintings that led his artist friends to follow him south. It wasn’t long before plein air (painting outdoors) artists like William Wendt and Frank Cuprien moved to Laguna Beach.

Laguna Beach is now a world class art destination with multiple art events held throughout the year.

A.I.R. Studio Paducah (Kentucky Residency) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] A.I.R. Studio Paducah, an artist-in-residence studio and efficiency apartment located in the Lower Town Arts District of Paducah, Kentucky, six blocks from the Ohio River, announces an ongoing call for artists. A.I.R. Studio welcomes self-motivated, focused artists working in a range of creative practices: visual artists, photographers, architects, writers, composers, and improvisational choreographers. Applicants are encouraged to have a clear objective for their residency. Stays usually range from two weeks to three months.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: Ongoing

For most of its existence, A.I.R. Studio Paducah residents have been visual and fiber artists, a few photographers, and a scattering of creatives in other disciplines. The application process has since expanded and opened up to writers, architects, composers, and improvisational choreographers. The program is currently attracting and enjoying an influx of writers to the program. Geographically, A.I.R. residents hail from all over the United States and Canada.

The residency affords the artist time and space for focused, independent work, the development of new ideas and experimentation. Visits to area cultural centers, galleries, and performance venues as well as short trips to regional arts facilities can open up a range of networking possibilities. A.I.R. features a storefront multi-purpose display space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency.

A.I.R. Studio Paducah conducts a competitive selection process. Applications are peer-reviewed on a basis of the quality of past work and the applicant’s potential to have a productive residency. Applicants must be at least 21 years old. Collaborative pairs and couples are welcome.

About A.I.R. Studio Paducah

A.I.R. Studio Paducah, now in its 18th year as an artist residency program, is situated in the heart of the LowerTown Arts District, Paducah, Kentucky. Since 2004, creatives from around the country and abroad have passed through A.I.R. doors to make the most of the space and a stretch of undistracted time as envisioned by founder and artist Alonzo Davis.

Drawn to Paducah by the Artist Relocation Program, Davis initially considered LowerTown as the location for a personal studio/retreat. Inspired however by working retreat experiences in California, Costa Rica, Connecticut, Wyoming, Colorado, and Virginia, Davis decided instead to establish an artist residency program. Not only would visiting artists benefit, but also interact with a changing influx of creatives from outside which lends an additional dynamic to the evolving LowerTown community. An active residency program heightens arts district visibility in the world of artist’s communities nationally and internationally.
