NEFA is excited to have Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) host our CreativeGround team in Providence, RI on May 30th! Members of our staff will facilitate office hour sessions to provide guidance on updating user profiles on CreativeGround to meet roster profile minimum requirements.

What is CreativeGround? CreativeGround is NEFA’s regional online directory of artists, cultural nonprofits, and creative businesses. Among many other dynamic features and functions, CreativeGround allows artists to display their designation as a vetted member of various New England State Arts Agency rosters. For example, Rhode Island’s Education Roster* can be found here.

Our May 30th office hours are specifically for Teaching Artists on RISCA’s Rhode Island Education Roster. Teaching artists on the roster can sign up for a timeslot by clicking the button below:

Call For Proposals

The Providence Preservation Society invites artists to propose new works related to PPS’s Most Endangered Properties of 2018. The Most Endangered Properties program engages the public in thinking about the future of significant historic buildings, landscapes, structures, and neighborhoods. With “Sites and Stories,” we aim to expand this engagement through the work of committed Rhode Island-based artists, involving the community in the re-building of narratives around the human beings who inhabited these important properties.  Artists and artist teams will have the opportunity to engage with scholars, historic preservationists and communities, interpreting endangered sites, drawing out hidden histories, and provoking essential public conversations.
To read the full Call to Artists and Summary Narratives of selected Most Endangered Properties, please click here to access the Dropbox. The Call to Artists is also attached to this email.
Proposals are due by 11:59 PM on Friday, June 15, 2018. Open to Rhode Island artists only.

The Annual Conference Committee members review over 800 submissions each year. They take into account subject areas and themes that arise from accepted proposals to present as broad and diverse a program as possible. The Committee selects between 250-300 sessions for each conference and it must, at times, make difficult decisions on submissions of high merit.

“The Art Fair for the 99%” -New York Times

See the GIAF video – https://youtu.be/IFdkkMht2rQ

Exhibit your art, your way, for free – in New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition: Governors Island Art Fair. At GIAF, each artist is free to self-curate a full room of their work in the historic buildings on this picturesque, almost surreal, former military base in the middle of New York Harbor.

Every weekend in September since 2008, 4heads has brought GIAF to Governors Island, just minutes from Manhattan and Brooklyn by scenic ferry ride. GIAF grants single exhibition rooms to individual artists from around the globe. Every year, more than 50,000 viewers visit this extensive exhibit housed in the landmark structures of New York’s favorite island get-away. GIAF is organized, produced, promoted, and installed entirely by working artists and volunteers. Participating exhibitors in GIAF are responsible for transporting, installing, and de-installing their own work. Artists are welcomed to attend the event as much as possible in order to communicate with art lovers and collectors, and to take advantage of the valuable contacts and relationships that form over the course of this series of weekends. Attendance is by no means required, but artists who accept the invitation to be on site, gain the most out of the experience and meet many collectors, curators and journalists.

GIAF is housed in and around the grand officers’ homes on Governors Island and is run with a hearty, DIY spirit and a strong sense of community. We ask our exhibitors to be resourceful, professional, self-sufficient, and well-versed in installing their own work – or finding someone who is. We are a stable, grass-roots, artist-run non-profit and we look forward to seeing you there.

Call to Artists & Curators

The gallery space at the Jamestown Arts Center has become one of the most exciting places to experience art and design in southern Rhode Island.  Because of its large size and high ceiling height, the space is unique and lends itself to a variety of exhibits.

If you are interested in showing your work or curating a show, you must submit a proposal to the exhibition committee.  We strongly urge you to visit the space first so that you understand its possibilities and limitations. We are also very interested in collaborating with other spaces and organizations, particularly outdoors in Jamestown.

The gallery is currently booked through December of 2019.  The deadline for submissions for 2020 is May 1, 2018.

Proposals should include the following:

  • A description of the exhibition, including its objective and why it should be shown at the Jamestown Arts Center.
  • Possible and best case time frames for the exhibition.  The usual duration of an exhibition is 4-6 weeks.
  • Artist’s or curator’s statement(s), and/or other support material, reviews, résumés, exhibition history etc.
  • A list of artists participating, if applicable.
  • Links to relevant website(s) if available.
  • A selection of high-quality digital images of the artwork to be shown, with titles, dimensions, and dates. Can be emailed or sent on cd.
  • Price range of the artwork, if it is for sale. Note: that the JAC will take a 35% commission if work is sold while at the arts center.
  • List of costs the JAC can expect, beyond reasonable gallery maintenance and opening expenses.
  • Description of educational programming that could be connected to this exhibit- artists’ or curators’ talks, workshops, films, classes, field trips etc.

    We are a multi-disciplinary facility:

    Please note the gallery space is also used for monthly film screenings, theatre productions, concerts, JAC talks, and other events. All sculpture and installations must be movable to accommodate other programming.
