CADD announces CADDfund 2017

caddfund

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Present
 
CADD FUNd 2017
 
Sunday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:30 pm
 
3015 AT TRINITY GROVES
3015 Gulden Lane
Dallas, TX 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper onMarch 5th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2017 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. CADD FUNd 2017 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the DFW arts community.

The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd will be awarded to a current or previous B.A, B.F.A., M.A. or M.F.A. graduate or candidate from an institution within 100 miles of Dallas. Six finalists will be selected from all of the applicants by three esteemed jurors to be announced soon. (Past jurors included: Gabriel Ritter, Judy Deaton, William Rudolph, Michael Mazurak, Jed Morse and Justine Ludwig.)

During the event on March 5th, the finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and then the audience participants will vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2017 will be announced!

The CADD FUNd is $2500 – $7500 + and beyond. Funds are raised by ticket sales and will go to the winner chosen by the audience. Tickets are $40 per person and will go on sale in January. Tickets will not be available at the door. In an effort to make CADD FUNd 2017 as accessible as possible for the students and artists, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied to jurors’ fees and administrative costs in lieu of charging application fees.

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded to Rachel Rushing for her project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space. Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios is a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art. Ms. Rushing will give a short presentation at the event about her project, Sunset Art Studios.

While CADD FUNd is about raising much-needed cash, we hope that it will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

ABOUT CADD – Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas (CADD) is a non-profit membership organization of galleries formed in 2006 for the purpose of promoting the advancement of contemporary art on all levels. Members are committed to represent the highest standards of contemporary art, while recognizing the importance of integrity and responsibility in working with artists, collectors, museum professionals, and the cultural community of Dallas.

Each year CADD offers a Scholarship to a graduating high school senior from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. The Scholarship is awarded to a student pursuing a Fine Arts degree at an accredited university or art institute. The scholarship may be used for tuition, books, equipment, travel, and/or supplies assisting the student in their academic endeavors. Proceeds from CADD events assists with the CADD Scholarship and CADD Educational Programs.

For many, the narrative of the American South, will be informed and confined by its history, but how is its future to be portrayed?

EASL: Give A Little….Help A Lot Today, November 29th, on GIVING TUESDAY!!!

easllogo2016

North Texas artists need your support!  To show your support, we hope you will make a gift to the Emergency Artist’s Support League.  As you probably know, visual artists and visual arts professionals often live within narrow financial constraints, even in the best of times. A medical crisis, fire, or other emergency can result in catastrophe.

In response, artists and arts professionals joined together to found EASL (Emergency Artists Support League) in 1992. EASL is operated by a 100% volunteer Board of Directors, allowing for maximum funds to be distributed to artists in need. Since its conception, EASL has provided over $475,000 in grant assistance to North Texas area visual artists and visual art professionals.

We want you to know that we are currently busy at work on new EASL initiatives; including new PR materials, a new website at EASL.US, and the distribution of a bi-annual E-Newsletter. In addition, new programs at area galleries, universities, and museums are being considered and will be rolled out later this year. Of course, the ever-popular Art Heist Art Auction will again bring artists and art collectors together in April 2018 to support local artists in need. We have great plans for the coming years, and we look forward to your participation as an EASL ambassador in our community.

The success of any organization is due in greatest measure to the support that it receives from the community it serves.  That is why we hope that you will support EASL today with a 100% tax-deductible contribution.

Donating is easy through our website at  EASL.US

Contributions mean a great deal to EASL, but they are even more important to artists and families in need. Again, thank you for your generous support.

About the Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The Museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’s vision to create “a small Prado for Texas.”

Today, the Meadows is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. The collection spans from the 10th to the 21st centuries and includes medieval objects, Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and major paintings by Golden Age and modern masters. Since 2010 the Museum has been engaged in a multidimensional partnership with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, which has included the exchange of scholarship, exhibitions, works of art, and other resources.

There Is Still Time To Reserve Your Table for November Artwalk

midtowncall

The November Midtown Artwalk will be on Saturday November 19 and this is the Saturday before Black Friday and the Thanksgiving holiday.

This is an opportunity for mall shoppers to catch up on holiday sales and my advice to you is to have some quick selling items. Items that are $10-$20 and that don’t eat up your cost.

Movies that are out and have been keeping the mall busy are:
Arrivals
Dr. Strange
Almost Christmas

There are more movies, but these are the popular top three.

If you would like to reserve a booth please let me know by Friday the 18th.  Booth space is $50.

The Galvez Streetscape, New Orleans, LA

Budget: $15,000
Deadline: 11/4/16

The Arts Council New Orleans, through the City of New Orleans Percent for Art Program, seeks to integrate impactful art into the city’s public space by illuminating the culturally artistic traditions inherent to our community. We believe that public art, serving in the best interest of public good, can be profoundly uplifting, help to build an appreciation for public space, and strengthen the creative, political, intellectual, and cultural tendencies that define New Orleans communities.


 

 

 

New Orleans Fire Department Murals, LA

Budget: $15,000
Deadline: 11/4/16

The Arts Council New Orleans’ Place + Civic Design Department is requesting mural proposals to replace public art installations at two New Orleans Fire Department locations. The department, through the City of New Orleans’ Percent for Art Program, and in partnership with the New Orleans Fire Department, will decommission existing public art banner installations and replace them with contemporary murals at the 801 Girod Street Flying Squad and Basin Street stations. The call is open to experienced artists, artist teams, or community groups working with muralists. Proposals may be submitted for both sites; however, only one artist or artist group will be selected for each site. While the installation should connect the fire department to the larger New Orleans community, themes should reflect broader sentiments that transcend specific references to fire, safety, and the departments’ history. Example sentiments include, but are not limited to: • A deep connection to, and congruence with, the surrounding neighborhood; • Specific historical references from the surrounding community; • Celebration of contemporary art’s transformative energy; • Collective empowerment and representation through creative expression in urban spaces; • Excitement and interest for the community’s current growth and energy; • Celebration of the neighborhood’s identity, and rich heritage.

October Artwalk at Valley View : Halloween Party and Artists’ Booths

midtowncall

Saturday, October 15, 2016, come on over to Valley View and let’s have a Halloween Artwalk Festival. 

Booth Fees are now back down to $50 and you can come as early as 1pm to set up.

I will continue to honor whatever previous arrangements you’ve made with Michelle–I want this Artwalk person transition to be easy for everyone.

Artwalk Halloween Event

This is the October Artwalk so this means Halloween fun time. Dress up on your Halloween costume and let’s make the mall festive.

The idea is to energize the movie goers and get them excited about Artwalk and the art galleries. When they are excited, they will want to come and support local artists.

So if they see people dressed up as their movie characters, giving out candy, etc, they will spend more time and hopefully money on your art.

Halloween Costume Idea:

Dress up as a character from your favorite movie. I can tell you that Suicide Squad was a huge hit in the mall–there was an event with cosplay (people dressing up as their favorite characters) and the mall was super busy on opening weekend.

Movies That Will Be Released on Artwalk Weekend

Some of the popular movies that will bring in the crowds will be released on Artwalk Weekend are:

Max Steel
The Accountant
Kevin Hart: What Now?
Desierto
Priceless

Remember that our AMC has the lowest priced tickets in town. $6 for movies and $8 for 3D–these are the evening prices every day including opening weekends so take advantage of this.

On Saturdays it gets busier after 5pm and the crowds come for the movies up until 12 am.

Movies are the main reason people come to Valley View Mall–it’s what it’s known for so if we make the movie goer’s experience unique they will bring their friends and so on.

Ideas To Attract People To Your Booth or Gallery

Give out more than wine. People expect the wine now so we need to get a bit creative. Since this is Halloween Artwalk, you can give out candy and treats.

Dress up your gallery a little bit for the holiday. Skulls are in as well so having some quick selling prints of your art with skulls or something creepy/Halloween themed may sell faster.

Here is a Pinterest board filled with great Halloween ideas you might find useful. 

How To Make This Artwalk A Huge Success:

Make sure you have your business cards and flyers ready. Maybe attach a piece of candy to them to make them memorable.

Let me know how many tables you need and if you need electricity as soon as possible. Remember first come first served.

Invite your friends. Call them, tell them to dress up and remember this is a fun and FREE event. Create a Facebook Event from your own account–grab the images from GMT’s event if you need them.

Stop by Skypony or GMT for Artwalk flyers if you need them–we provide them free of charge.

As always, I am here for any questions, comments, and ideas on how to make Artwalk a huge success.

Cheers,

Jaye

Bath House Petit Party: Banner Painting Sept. 29

petit party.banner painting

In collaboration with the upcoming Dias de los Muertes (Day of the Dead) gallery show (this is one of two blockbusters the Bath House has each year), we are inviting you, our friends, to join in to paint a 60 foot banner!  We will have examples of artwork and for those not wishing to freehand, there will be outline sketches to fill in directly on the banner–just like our coloring book social, but on a grand scale.

When the banner is complete, we will drape it through the ceiling during the exhibition.  Envision this: your work will be as proudly displayed as the gallery artists’ works! All supplies provided and the party is free to all.  And naturally, it wouldn’t be a Petite Party without libations and light hors d’oeuvres!

PLEASE RSVP.  communications@friendsofthebathhouse.org. Please title the subject ” Petite Party: Banner.”

The Petite Parties were invented to offer fun, artistic, and stress-free socials for the local community in keeping with the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center’s mission of enriching the visitor experience.

With the Bath House Cultural Center’s tightly booked schedule, the Friends and the Bath House and staff of the Bath House slip these events into rare, open evenings.  Originally conceived as pop-up events, the parties have evolved into quarterly must-do’s that enjoy a loyal following.  Each evening opens with an unique concept.  The organization has sponsored coloring pages, holiday ornament making and painting banners to complement gallery shows and have library index card designs and artsy trivial pursuit on its line-up.
