Clark Hulings (1922-2011) was an American Realist painter whose luminous rural and urban landscapes were drawn from years of travel has a portoflio of beautiful imags which can be licensed through Art Licensing. In his honor, the Clark Hulings Fund will help early-stage professionals seize opportunities to drive their careers forward. By providing targeted support at pivotal moments, The Fund strives to improve the prospects of up-and-coming individuals, and enable many more people to encounter and be enriched by their work.
 

The Fund considers proposals from professional artists who have secured tangible prospects for advancing their careers, but lack sufficient financial resources to capitalize on those opportunities. Examples include but are not limited to: the completion of work due to a gallery, museum, or private collection, the transportation of work or of the artist to an exhibition of that artist’s material, the management of logistical or technical requirements to realize a project, etc. The Fund does not support performance, literary or commercial work. 

For more information about this fund, click here

 

 

 

Who Should Apply?
Professional painters, sculptors and artists working on paper who:

  • Employ traditional media, not including photography, film or video.
  • Have had their work published and/or exhibited professionally.
  • Have been hired or commissioned to create new work.
  • Have received opportunities to exhibit their work.


Submission Requirements:

  • Fiscal Sponsor: The Fund cannot make awards to individuals.
  • Artist Statement
  • Request for Support, including a detailed proposal and images, if available
  • Examples of previous work
  • Resume/CV
  • Supporting materials, if relevant (letter of intent from a gallery, commission statement, referrals, references, etc.).


Review Process
A group of five panelists will review the proposals of qualified applicants and advise on specific grants to be made during each cycle. One of the five will be a director of the Fund, either Mary or Elizabeth Hulings. The other four will be members of the visual art community (i.e., artists, critics, curators, gallerists, publishers, scholars, private collectors, etc.). The goal is to have as broad a representation as possible. With the exception of The Fund directors, panelists will contribute for two-year terms, which will be staggered. Panelists may serve multiple terms.

Award Amounts and Cycle
The Fund aims to distribute its first award in November 2013. Beginning in 2014, two awards will be given per year, one in each category (1-painting, drawing and works on paper, and 2-sculpture). Grants will be given of up to $5,000, depending on the need stipulated in the request. Individuals who receive an award will not be eligible to apply again for five years.

Southern Delights- a new collection by Anderson Designs!

Aug 08, 2013

There has been a lot of interest in Southern culture lately—everything from food to music to lifestyle. Several Southern cities have been designated as top U.S. cities to live in this year (music city is at the top of that list)! Since The Anderson Design Group firm is located in Nashville, Tennessee, coming up with lots of great material came naturally to them! The result is a new line of art that Southerners love because it reflects who they are. People from other places fall in love with the simplicity, comfort, nostalgia and whimsical qualities associated with southern lifestyle reflected in this series. 

 

   

 

 The Anderson Design Group has also added over a dozen NEW National Parks designs to their Art & Soul of America series. They plan to create several more park designs over the next few months, and they are open to requests from folks who have a favorite outdoor destination that they would like to see depicted in their classic style.

 

  

 

 The Anderson Design Group  is currently working on a new series of designs for men! Often, we have customers tell us that they are having trouble buying a gift for Dad, a husband, brother or friend who is a dude. Anderson Design understands that guys like to decorate with art, but they LOVE art that doesn’t look like it was picked out by a girl! Men crave art that celebrates the things they care about,  so this manly new line of images will focus on sports, dogs, beer, cars, planes, trains, fishing, hunting, outdoor adventure, man caves, etc. This new line of designs should be ready to unveil in November or December so keep checking our website to see if the images have arrived!
