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
DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 15, 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.
