Deadline: 29 Nov 2017

The Creative Co-Working Think Tank will be held on Thursday, Nov. 30th at 6-8 pm at 32 E Baltimore Ave, Lansdowne, PA. This event will allow artists to get in on the ground floor of the newest creative co-working space in Delaware County Pennsylvania. If you are looking for creative co-working in a town that has a small-town feel or close proximity to the city of Philadelphia, you will find both in Lansdowne.

Residents and businesses here have many reasons they choose to base themselves in Lansdowne

Low Rent/Home Costs: Whether you’re a young adult renting your first apartment, a new family buying a home, or a senior looking to downsize, Lansdowne is for you. Rents and home prices are lower than many similar communities in Delaware County. According to Livibility.com, about 60% of owners in Lansdowne and 50% of renters pay less than 30% of their income toward housing expenses, a measure of affordability.

Feeling of Community: Events like the Lansdowne Farmers Market, Art Shows, Annual Festivals, Memorial Day 5K race, and parades give our residents a strong sense of community. In our targeted Elm Street neighborhood, the LEDC organizes street cleanups, park beautifications, green initiatives, youth outreach, and healthy community initiatives. These events are great opportunities to become involved in making Lansdowne your community.

Historic Beauty: Lansdowne’s central business district and two separate neighborhoods. The Henry Albertson Subdivision District and Lansdowne Park District can be found on the National Register of Historic Places. Residents love and are proud of the famous, historic architecture.

Easy Access to Philadelphia: A 20-minute regional rail ride or a 13-mile drive to Philadelphia, Lansdowne offers that suburban lifestyle with easy urban access.

Diversity: Lansdowne fosters and promotes a vibrant and inspiring artistic community. It makes up a large portion of residents. Families of all types are welcome here. Freedom from fear of judgment based on religion, culture, and sexual orientation is a fundamental right in Lansdowne.

ForumArts Sculpture Symposium – Call for Artists

ForumArts is opening a call to artists to participate in the outdoor ForumArts Sculpture Symposium for 11 days during the summer 2016.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 24 Apr 2016

The ForumArts Sculpture Symposium is a residency opportunity for artists to make an entirely new sculpture, work alongside other artists, and discuss their work. The focus of the symposium is to make work inspired by and in response to the 130 acres and 180 years of the Himalayan Gardens at Riverhill House. Artists are welcome to visit the gardens prior to submission or base their piece on the images and video provided. Artists can work with natural or manmade materials.

The Symposium will consist of an 11 day residency in which 5 selected artists will each make a new piece of work. London Sculpture Workshop will provide an open workshop space with access to basic tools including woodwork, metalwork, and welding equipment. Mechanical and manual assistance in moving work can be given on site. The selection of materials can be decided by the artists, but they have to create work that will survive outside for at least 2 years.

During the ForumArts Sculpture Symposium, we will organize discussions between the artists, members of the public, and curators. Evening events will include barbecues, visits to local pubs, a press launch, and closing party. At the end of the Symposium, the sculptures will form part of an exhibition at Riverhill for the duration of summer 2016.

In 2017, a publication will be produced and launched at a London Sculpture Conference at which artists will present the work made during the Symposium.

ForumArts will fund material costs up to £500 for each artist. ForumArts is in charge of buying the materials. ForumArts will offer up to £50 to each artist for travel expenses to and from the Symposium within England. Receipts need to be produced. ForumArts cannot cover traveling expenses to international artists though it offers recommendation letters that could help to get funding with other entities. International artists will have travel expenses covered from any airport within England to Riverhill.

ForumArts will provide all meals and refreshments during the Symposium. Please note that, for the moment, accommodation will be camping; however, we are fundraising for getting hotel accommodation. We would provide the necessary kit for international artists.

ForumArts is a non-for profit arts organisation based in London that offers free membership for artists. ForumArts provides a platform for discussion on creative practice, opportunities for artists, visits to artists’ studios, and invitations to keynote speakers to talk to our members. ForumArts has organised major events such as the First West London Arts Prize 2013, First National Sculpture Symposium in England in 2014, and The London Sculpture Conference 2015.

Downtown Clayton Sculpture Trail – Call for Artists

The Town of Clayton Public Art Advisory Board invites you to submit an application to participate in its annual Downtown Clayton Sculpture Trail public art exhibition.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 4 Mar 2016

The Downtown Clayton Sculpture Trail is a temporary outdoor exhibit displayed at eight publicly-owned sites from May 2016 to May 2017. This call to artists provides an opportunity for artists to submit completed artwork for consideration. A selection panel will choose a number of original sculptures to be displayed in public and/or private locations throughout town. The artist retains ownership of their work and agrees to lend it to the exhibition. Selected artists will receive a $1,000 honorarium for lending the work for the twelve-month period. In addition, the board will determine the mechanism to select a “People’s Choice” winner with an award of $1,000.

  • There is no application fee
  • The Town of Clayton may purchase an entry at the conclusion of the exhibition for permanent placement
  • The $1,000 honorarium will be credited against the purchase price for the artwork selected
  • If the artist also wins the People’s Choice award, that $1,000 award will also be credited against the purchase price for the artwork selected
  • The Town of Clayton reserves the right to photograph and reproduce images of the artwork on exhibition for promotional and educational purposes

Wonderful exposure in Downtown Clayton – a destination where people, business, and the arts thrive in our rapidly growing community and is a North Carolina Main Street® community. Founded in 1869, long-time and new residents alike are rediscovering many of the historical and architecturally significant buildings and neighborhoods that add charm and character to downtown.

Festivals and special events such as Town Square Concert Series, Millstock Art & Music Festival (now the Mondo Roots Cultural Arts & Music Festival), Clayton Harvest & Music Festival, Halloween Parade, Christmas Tree Lighting, and others draw visitors and residents alike to Downtown.

Downtown Clayton is accessible with I-40 and I-95 just minutes away. It’s just twenty minutes from Downtown Raleigh, the state capital, and about a thirty minute drive from Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Sites for the Downtown Clayton sculpture trail include Town Square, Horne Square, The Clayton Center, Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library, and many other popular and well-traveled locations in Downtown Clayton and beyond. The Town reserves the right to designate the exhibition location of the selected artwork.

Art enhances our Town, community, and downtown experience. Our Town leaders are hugely supportive and this annual sculpture trail continues to be wildly popular. In an effort to establish a collection of artistic works for the benefit of the community and the betterment of public spaces and facilities, the Clayton Town Council established the Public Art Advisory Board on February 4, 2008. The purpose of the Public Art Advisory Board is to establish a procedure through which the Town of Clayton can acquire and accept artwork on loan or as a gift and make recommendations to the Town Council toward the creation of a Public Art Program.
