Revealed Emerging Artist Series 2021 – Call for Artists Now Open
The Sculpture Center invites early career artists of the greater Ohio region whose practice includes sculpture, installation, mixed and expanded media, relational aesthetics, and performance to apply for inclusion in its annual Revealed Emerging Artist Series (formerly Window to Sculpture or W2S). Through this keystone program, now in its thirtieth year, The Sculpture Center fosters and promotes the careers of exceptional sculptors during the first ten years of their profession. Four to six artists are selected annually by a diverse Exhibition Committee for one-person, full gallery exhibitions of new work in either the Main Gallery (1000 sq. ft.), Euclid Avenue Gallery (750 sq. ft.) or new for 2021, the mixed-use outdoor Davis Courtyard. The 6-7 week long exhibitions will be held January 2021-June 2021.
The Sculpture Center is seeking applicants for the 11th year of its 2021 Revealed (formerly Window to Sculpture or W2S) Emerging Artist Series with an open Call to Artists from the Ohio region. Founded in 1989 The Sculpture Center fosters and promotes the careers of exceptional sculptors during the first ten years of their profession. 4-6 artists are chosen annually for one-person exhibitions in either the Main Gallery, Euclid Avenue Gallery, or outdoor courtyard with a group catalog (if funding is available). The 6-7 week long exhibitions will be held January 2021-May 2021.
The staff of The Sculpture Center work closely with the artist throughout the development of the exhibition, but do not make studio visits unless requested to do so by the artist.
The artist of stand-alone sculpture, installation, expanded media, relational aesthetics, or performance must have an Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, western Pennsylvania, western New York, or Ontario, Canada connection, by birth, residency, or education, but does not need to be currently living in the area.
By the application deadline (January 6, 2020) the artist must have completed his/her schooling (B.A. or M.A.), apprenticeship, or period of equivalent self-taught experience by at least one year and be no more than ten years from schooling graduation date into his/her career.
The artist may not be attending school at the time of the exhibition. If a sculptor chosen for the Revealed series enters an art school before the exhibition, he/she forfeits the exhibition opportunity, but may reapply, with preference given, upon graduation.
Submitted images or videos should be of sculpture, installation, other expanded media, etc., that indicate current work and, if possible, the nature of the proposed Revealed exhibition. The Revealed series requires the creation of a new body of work or significant further development of a current body of work.
The Revealed Application allows for submission of up to 15 images and requires a $35 entry fee.
The Artist develops work for either a 1,000 or 700 sq foot gallery, or a mixed use outdoor courtyard, none of which can support heavy weight on the walls or from the ceiling. The artist is responsible for transportation of the artwork, installation, de-installation, insurance during transportation, provision of exhibition technical equipment, and personal housing, if needed.
The Sculpture Center provides limited assistance during installation and de-installation, limited exhibition equipment, fine arts insurance while the artwork is on the premises, all publicity and e-vites, professional photography of the exhibition, and a catalog (if funding is available). The Sculpture Center provides a small stipend to assist with travel or materials, but cannot provide additional funding.
The artist visits The Sculpture Center by fall 2021 and develops a workable installation schedule with the Executive Director. The artist gives an informal artist talk at the opening, which may be a dialogue with another artist of staff member of The Sculpture Center.
