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.

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.
