Color Bakery's Secret Garden

Sep 09, 2013

Friday afternoon, Syrena and Courtney took a trip up to Poultney, Vermont to visit a magical art and garden gallery. This garden-gallery not only features art by Color Bakery’s leading lady, Mindy, but it also displays Glen’s beautiful flowers.

 

(Here is Glen standing with their garden-gallery)

This garden has brought Mindy and Glen a lot of attention as people from all over the surrounding communities visit their garden. They are always changing out the décor with Mindy’s newest or favorite pieces, so the gallery never looks the same. Glen is very excited for Halloween, as he will decorate the garden-gallery and his house accordingly.

  

If you are interested in taking a walk through the garden-gallery, head over to Poultney. If you are interested in reviewing Color Bakery’s entire portfolio, click here.

Clark Hulings Fund offers grants to early-stage professional visual artists!

Aug 21, 2013

 

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.
