Deadlines April 2013

Deadlines for jewellery competitions, conferences, exhibitions and other opportunities.

Upcoming opportunities to exhibit, learn, earn or perhaps even teach, from all over the place (but mostly in Australia and the USA.) ** New additions

Undated Opportunities

Patina Gallery seeks Master International Artists. Make ‘Soul-Stirring’ works? Wanna be one of 3 artists added to their stable? No deadline, but post went up Jan 23rd, so perhaps sooner rather than later?

Tributaries: Call for entries. The Metal Museum, in Memphis, has an ongoing call for exhibitions from emerging and mid-career artists. First deadline Feb 2013, for upcoming shows, and they keep applications on file for 2 years.

The Imperial Centre for the Arts + Sciences in North Carolina have a permanent exhibition call out, with shows booked 2-3 years in advance.

Lord Coconut in Melbourne has outdone himself by publishing this listing of opportunities for artists in his gallery. As ever, this is to exhibit jewellery for men. Thanks to Karen at Melbourne Jeweller for the heads up.

Opportunities with deadlines

Quality Images of Contemporary Brooches and Pins. Clunky title, interesting idea. Have your work shown at the 2013 SNAG conference, without the hassle of international postage/customs. Show images! Due April 20, 2013.

Toowoomba Contemporary Wearables. Australia and New Zealand resident artists, this one is for you. Entries must be postmarked Friday May 3, 2013

2013 SNAG Conference – Meta-Mosaic. Toronto, May 15-18 2013.

** Artist in Residence – applications open for Edinburgh College of Arts. Head of metals is Stephen Bottomley who studied under David Watkins and who works with computer cutting and enamels. Other opportunities open as well. Applications due May 17 2013.

Cheongju International Craft Biennale. South Korean competition and exhibition. This year’s theme: Something old, something new. Prize money amounts, and amount of awards being made have changed since 2011, with more money for less artists being the general trend (this info is available under the 첨부파일 (2) link which appears just below the ‘Attach Entry Form’ link, which is all on the landing page from my link above). June 13, 2013

Making Jewelry Magic with the Orion Pulse Arc Welders: OK, so it’s just a class at the Southern Highland Craft Center in Asheville, NC, but I really want to go. I’ve been stopping into Orion’s page a lot of late (Tony Price – whoever that is – still keeps on trying to engage me with chat each time I open the window…) so when I saw this I was already primed to go. Anyway, it’s only $110, and on June 22nd and 23rd 2013.

** Craft and Design Enquiry have a call for papers for their OPEN section, for Issue 6, 2014. Deadline for submission June 30 2013.

** AJF Emerging Artist Award. The 2013 edition of this competition closes midnight on June 30th.

** Participation and Exchange – 2013 Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia conference in Brisbane, Australia. Conference dates: 12-14 July 2013, with early-bird registrations open now!
