Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center seeks artists working in any media to submit proposals to set up a working studio space in the Main Gallery for 1-2 week periods. These studios will be set up much like a “booth,” utilizing the artist’s own supplies and equipment. Artists are expected to be present in their studio booth during the majority of their scheduled period (which must include at least one weekend). Artists are encouraged to sell artwork in their booths. This call is open to all media. In addition, artists are asked to create an activity for visitors, as simple or as complex as you wish, that will allow visitors to experiment with your materials and creative process. The size and complexity of the activity/project is up to you. Artists may choose to have an on-going activity throughout the duration of their stay, or set specific times that the activity will operate. Through this program, artists are afforded an opportunity to work in free studio space in a beautiful setting. This is a perfect occasion for a serene retreat to immerse yourself in your artwork and to network with other artists. Overnight accommodations for out-of-town artists are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

A national juried call; open to all media; cash awards.

Deadline to apply: December 5, 2016

$20 non-refundable application fee

From January 20 – March 1, 2017, Annmarie’s spectacular Main Gallery will be transformed into temporary artist studios, providing a serene retreat and experimental space for artists to develop new works, display and sell their work, network with other artists, and share their creative process with visitors.

Memories of home and place influence and inspire us as makers. From the architecture and materials of building to sensory impressions and psychological imprints, “home” is fertile ground for the development and creation of compelling work. The idea of home conveys familial or domestic notions, but may also refer to spaces or feelings of safety, community, or camaraderie.

Home/Maker is an exhibition of work celebrating the creative endeavors of theBaltimore Jewelry Center community. The Baltimore Jewelry Center has created a home for art jewelry in Baltimore and through this exhibition we will be highlighting the work of our community. We are seeking work made by our students and community members that addresses the theme of home.

Home/Maker will be on view December 2, 2016 – February 5, 2017, and an opening reception Friday, December 2.

Anyone who has taken classes or rented studio time at Baltimore Jewelry Center is welcome to apply.

Juror, Dara O’Malley, is an art jeweler based in Baltimore. She received a BFA in Illustration and a certificate degree in Jewelry from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She exhibits and sells her work at a variety of craft shows, including FACETS and the American Craft Council show, and is a bench jeweler for Rebecca Myers Collection.
