This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women (womxn, womyn, wimmin) the right to vote. This gives us pause to consider where we’ve come, where we are and where we’re going as women and artists. Much has been achieved with the recent emphasis on women artists of the past and the spotlight on contemporary women artists.
This show will feature women in the arts expressing ideas about the experience of women through time and today. What is the unique voice of women; the feminine, and the sacred feminine in art? Show us your visual voice and vision of the power of women’s past, present and future in society and in the arts.

Emergency Grants – Foundation for Contemporary Arts: 12/8

In light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the artist community, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts launched the FCA Emergency Grants COVID-19 Fund.

FCA's mission to encourage, sponsor, and promote work of a contemporary, experimental nature, Emergency Grants provide urgent funding for visual and performing artists who:

  • Have sudden, unanticipated opportunities to present their work to the public when there is insufficient time to seek other sources of funding

  • Incur unexpected or unbudgeted expenses for projects close to completion with committed exhibition or performance dates

Emergency Grants is the only active, multi-disciplinary program that offers immediate assistance of this kind to artists living and working anywhere in the United States, for projects occurring in the U.S. and abroad.

Each month FCA receives an average of 95 Emergency Grant applications and makes approximately 12-15 grants. Grants range in amount from $500 to $2,500, and the average grant is now $1,600.

Applications close December 8th 2020.

Emergency Grants – Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant: ONGOING

This program has no deadlines

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. 

The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

This program has no deadlines.
