The Lawrence Art Party is looking for artists to show with their gallery for this upcoming Final Friday Art Walk on September 27th, 2013. And all future Final Friday showings.
Message below from Sarah Kunen:
We support KU and community artists in our gallery which is sponsored by the Lawrence Creates Makerspace and the Lawrence Art Guild, a 40 year old organization. You can learn more about the community Makerspace and how to be involved as well.
The gallery accepts all forms of art - installation, textiles, printmaking, sculpture, paintings, drawings, spoken word, performance, music, group showings, etc. As a KU student there is a discount on the fee to show, rather than $20 it is $10, and there is 10% commission on any art sold. Although it is not required that you sell your work. All fees go to supporting the gallery and the Lawrence Creates Makerspace.
If you want to show your art or known someone who should, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a couple images of what you plan on showing. Please, spread the word, tell your friends, your students, your instructors! We would love to have you and see your work.
Thank you and we hope to see you at the Final Friday Art Walk this month!
Gallery Director and Curator
The Watkins Community Museum and the Lawrence Percolator invite the community to participate in a collaborative exhibition marking the 150th anniversary of Quantrill’s Raid in August 2013. The raid’s lasting effects on the city remain a topic of discussion, though generations have passed. These exhibits aim to remember the victims of the raid and show appreciation for those who made it their mission to rebuild following the city’s destruction. Artists of all ages and experience are invited to submit works responding to the question:
What does Quantrill’s Raid mean to you today?
To delve deeper into the legacy of Quantrill’s raid, artists may consider responding to one of the following questions.
Works will be displayed at the Watkins and the Percolator from early August through October. Exact dates will vary between the two locations. All artistic media are welcome for submission. Please contact the exhibit coordinator if your work is live performance or requires electrical access.
To submit works, contact Abby Pierron at the Watkins Museum, 785-841-4109 or e-mail email@example.com for details. Works will be accepted at the Watkins Museum and the Percolator in late July and early August.
ENTRY MUST BE POSTMARKED OR HAND-DELIVERED BY 5:00 P.M., FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2013.
ONLINE ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY, MARCH 1 2013

Studio assistants are students who assist instructors and fellow students and are responsible for maintaining the school’s standards for studio operation. Assistants receive housing and meals, and pay only the $50 nonrefundable processing fee. Assistants are selected based on their knowledge of a working studio. In addition to 25–40 hours of work each week, studio assistants are required to work from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the day before and the day after their session, and must make travel arrangements which will allow them to meet this requirement. If you cannot meet this requirement, please do not apply. Many instructors select their own assistants; check the list below to determine availability of positions before applying.
To apply, check the studio assistant box on the application form, and include a letter explaining your experience in the field and your interest in the class, along with a résume, two letters of recommendation, five printed images of your work (maximum size 8-1/2 x 11, no slides or CDs), and the $50 processing fee. Applications must be received no later than February 15, and must include letters of reference. Applicants will be notified by April 1.
International students note: because the U.S. government considers our studio assistant program to be work for hire, students who are not U.S. citizens may not receive studio assistantships unless they have a work permit.
