Call for Artists-Request for Proposals: CAC Visual Arts Program & Fall Public Arts Initiative

The Chenango Arts Council (CAC) is pleased to announce the acceptance of Request for Proposals from New York State artists for exhibition in the Mariea Brown and Raymond Loft Galleries, located in CAC facilities at 27 West Main Street, Norwich, NY. The proposal deadline is January 6th, 2016, with a jurying process occurring mid-January for exhibition in the following year. There is no fee for submission, and CAC staff is available for technical assistance with the application process.

The mission of the CAC’s Visual Arts Program is to exhibit a wide range of high quality contemporary art exhibits by emerging and professional artists, and to introduce the general public visitor to a greater understanding of the visual arts. Our high quality exhibition space enables the CAC to create an experience and atmosphere that assists artists with enhancing their portfolios, while offering greater exposure and access to their work for rural patrons of the visual arts.

In addition to this opportunity, and in partnership with the Norwich Business Improvement District and the Norwich Rotary Club, the CAC is pleased to announce a “Call for Artists” for the Chenango Public Arts Initiative (PAI), Fall 2015.

The PAI was created to present an inviting and welcoming image of our community as a destination place by bringing the arts to the public in everyday life. Public art enriches the areas where we live, work and play, thereby increasing business, encouraging tourism and reducing unsightly or vacant areas. The PAI will support and showcase local area talent and give artists greater exposure for their work.

Artists of all mediums are encouraged to submit their PAI applications by the deadline of August 14 for a September 11th opening. All entries will be considered for a curated group show to be exhibited in store fronts and gallery spaces in downtown Norwich, New York. The exhibit will remain up until October 30th. There is no fee for submission. Artists will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis.

For more information on these artist opportunities, please visit our website at www.chenangoarts.org, or call the office at (607)336-2787/ARTS.
