ARTIST RESIDENCY: MARSH-BILLINGS-ROCKEFELLER NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK

APPLICATION PERIOD OCTOBER 1 TO DECEMBER 31 EACH YEAR

While artists have historically played in important role throughout the National Park System, the link between art and the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is unique, as the park’s holdings include nearly 400 paintings and prints that highlight America’s evolving landscape-among them works by Thomas Cole, David, Johnson, and Albert Bierstadt. Such works have helped to encourage the impulse toward conservation stewardship throughout the nation, and the park strives to highlight stewardship through diverse programs. Like these forebears, many contemporary artists are working in ways celebrate the natural world and that inspire their audiences to broaden and deepen their appreciation of, and commitment to, environmental stewardship and the conservation of public land. As part of its mission, the K2 Family Foundation seeks to foster sustainability initiatives and to create opportunities for artists whose work incorporates scientific awareness and concerns. Recognizing the way their missions dovetail, and hoping to foster greater connections between artists, audience, and the national park system itself, the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and the K2 Family Foundation are pleased to announce their joint commitment to an Artist-in-Residence Program that will allow one artist per year to work for an extended period at the park.

Open to established artists with a demonstrated interest in environmental issues. A stipend of $15,000 is offered to the artist, and some mony is available to defray expenses incurred in the residency project.  Artists are responsible for room, board and travel to Vermont.

BRUCEBO AND W.B. BRUCE FINE ART SCHOLARSHIPS

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: JANUARY 31 ANNUALLY
Website

Since 1972, the Brucebo Fine Art  Scholarship Foundation of Gotland, Sweden (=BBF) has offered a fine art residency scholarship to younger, talented, emerging Canadian artists aged 40 or younger, preferably painters, thus providing an inspiring study and work stay  in northern Europe  on the island of Gotland located  in the middle of the crisp waters of the Baltic Sea.

The BBF fine  art scholarships  hark back  to the post-impressionist era in Europe – the 1880’s – a time when Paris  was the world  center  of artistic creativity . Two young  artists, Caroline Benedicks of Sweden and William Blair Bruce of Hamilton, Canada,  meet in Paris, marry and after living  many years  on the European continent , settle on history-laden Gotland Island , a Swedish  outpost approximately equidistant between  the Swedish  mainland and the Baltic state of Latvia. With the untimely death  of William ( in 1906), and that of  Caroline ( in 1935 ), the estate , in the early 70’s, created  the Brucebo Fine Art ( Scholarships ) Foundation, an organization promoting island-based cultural history and fine art.  (more…)

FLACC is a workplace for visual artists and creates the conceptual, organisational and technical conditions for realising unique artist projects.

FLACC has metal and woodworking workshops, a digital studio, and a foundry with a furnace and kilns for ceramics, bronze and glass applications, and an extensive workspace. The staff is knowledgeable about the production possibilities of nearby workplaces and collaborates with those workplaces and with schools and companies to give the artists the best possible support and assistance.

FLACC offers accommodation, a workplace, covered travel expenses, a per diem as well as a small production budget.
