The project has a budget of $68,000, which will cover compensation for the artists’ design and engineering services, materials, fabrication, installation, and any other costs related to the Downtown Mural Project. “This project is an incredible opportunity to use visual art to celebrate Plano’s rich history,” said Alex Hargis, the Executive Director for the Historic Downtown Plano Association. “We are so excited to collaborate with the artists to create something that will honor Plano’s heritage.”

The project will culminate with a public unveiling ceremony and press event in downtown with city officials, residents, private sector leaders and regional art advocates in attendance.

To assist in the artist open call and overall project management of the mural installations, Plano Art Association has enlisted the help of Joshua King, Dallas-based artist and co-founder of Aurora. An advisory council has also been formed to ensure the historical accuracy and relevance of the murals. For more information on the Downtown Mural Project, visit www.planomural.com

IDENTITY Artist Residency Program in Oak Cliff – deadline Feb. 15

identity residency

Artist Residency Program: Proposals due February 15, 2017

Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.

 -Cesar Chavez

Sunset Art Studios and the Oak Cliff Cultural Center are now accepting proposals for Identity: I am one, I am many, a collaborative residency and exhibition program.

Sunset Art Studios, from artists Rachel Rushing and Emily Riggert, is a social practice studio in Elmwood run with the core principle of connecting people with the arts in an approachable way. This focus emphasizes the value of multiple viewpoints from diverse groups of individuals. The artistic process opens up the mind to creative problem solving, and seeing complex issues in fresh ways.

In our current political climate this mentality is vital to the survival of a civil and democratic society where all people are created equal and valued equally. The arts are manifestations of these values.

Inspired by the words of Cesar Chavez, Identity: I am one, I am many is a group exhibition exploring the ways we define ourselves and the world around us. Artists in Residence at Sunset Art Studios, and the SAS coordinating artists look at identity through the lens of culture, politics, gender, community, and more to forward discussions vital to our society.

Texas is a multicultural space home to veterans, students, immigrants, entrepreneurs, artists, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends. Through this program artists are encouraged to apply whose work considers these complex identities.

Two artists will be selected for 4-week residencies at Sunset Art Studios during the months of March and April 2016. Residents will be provided with

  • Shared studio space

  • Limited studio furniture

  • Large exhibition wall

  • Connections with local community members, activists, and galleries.

  • Free WIFI

Work produced during each residency will be included in the May 2016 I am one, I am many exhibition at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center along with the work of the Sunset Art Studios coordinating artists.

 

Eligibility

Artists must be 21+ to participate in this program, and must be residents within Dallas city limits. Artists of color, LGBT+, and women applicants are encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to those whose proposal incorporate community activation, participatory making or viewing experiences, and/or social engagement with the local neighborhood.

Proposals will only be accepted online HERE

New Year, New Low Price Booth Fee at Midtown Artwalk

midtowncall

New Booth Fee $25 and a huge update

I truly hope your holiday season was the best yet.

I have excellent news for all the artists. As you know, it’s been in the news about Valley View being demolished. Well, parts of it is being demolished and they did start on the demolition.

Eventually it will all be gone, however there will be at least six more Artwalks between now and then. I know this because several AMC staff told me their management told them that AMC extended their lease for another 6 months.

I am lowering the booth fee to $25 and changing up a few things.

To sign up contact Jaye, manager of Skypony Studio 3rdsaturdayartwalk@gmail.com or 214-938-0125


As many of you know, I manage Skypony Studio and we do very well because I stay open late nights every weekend. Including Artwalk weekends. So when many of you have some to me and said you don’t make that many sales, I realized that Skypony seemed to be the only gallery doing well.

That is not my only goal–I want everyone to succeed which is why I changed the setup time from 5 pm to 1 pm when I first took over Artwalk.

Now, I realized that still, many artists have given up on Valley View because of all the media attention regarding the demolition. Many artists closed their galleries, but I can assure you that when it’s time to leave for good, Skypony Studio will no longer be there. So as long as we are there, then there will be an Artwalk.

Now for the game changers.

Valley View is considered a dead mall. During opening night of Star Wars, I watched over 1,000 people flock to the movies and overheard many conversations about how the mall is dead. So if you have this many people confirming that–then we have an issue. A problem that needs to be solved.

This problem is your perception of Valley View as a dead mall. 

Instead of seeing it as such, see it as an opportunity to show off your art. While it is still here, you have a chance to get out there and be seen. Sometimes it will be slow, others there will be a major movie release and AMC Valley View has the cheapest opening night tickets. $6 and $10 3D, which is why I emphasize too much about the movie crowd.

I’ve said before that you need quick selling items, but it’s been brought to my attention that many of you get people coming but not buying. So this bad thing can actually be turned into a great thing and here’s how:

Instead of seeking to make sales, you need to seek to make connections. 

Ever heard of network marketing? Avon. Doterra, Mary Kay are all MLM’s which is a multi level marketing system. They use network marketing to make their money. It’s simply selling yourself to others without seeming like a desperate salesperson. I’ve read the book by Eric Worres called Go Pro. He specializes in the network marketing industry and he says make it your goal to always make at least two connections each day.

During the Artwalk you have the opportunity to make over a hundred connections. GMT has clients who frequent the Artwalks.

The goal now isn’t to make sales, but to make connections. Connections mean repeat customers. So what you need to do is invest in business cards and flyers, make yourself known. Use the Artwalk to promote your brand. Yes, you have a brand–you ARE your brand.

This is why I am lowering the booth fee to $25. I am looking for artists who want to promote their brands and focus on building those connections. By lowering the fee, you can save $35 and use it to invest in business cars, flyers. Design a 4X6 flyer and print it out at Walgreens. I pay $20 for around 100 of them. Turn your flyers into value by including a coupon for shopping in your gallery, online store, or for whatever you wish.

Valley View may be going away soon but right now, it is still here. And you can use it to make a name for yourself as an artist. You can take pictures of your booth, post them online, make a blog about them, and this will give you an image of a professional artist who is big enough to do shows. Meaning you are doing well.

When people buy from me, it’s because I don’t seem desperate even though those jewelry sales put food on the table. People can sense when you are too eager for a sale which is why I want artists who are interested in showing, rather than selling, their work. Here’s an example of a confident artist:

Imagine your booth and a person walking up to it. Instead of bombarding them, just greet them and introduce yourself. Hi, my name is Jaye and this is my work. Let me know if you have any questions.

Their usual response, “Oh wow YOU did this? It’s amazing!” Even though I am inside the gallery, people don’t seem to get that the jewelry is mine.

6 out of 10 people walk away. 4 out of 10 buy. But 10 out of 10 always return because we had a conversation about a particular piece. And they either bring a friend, or another person says, “Hey my friend so and so was here yesterday, are you the jewelry artist?”

This is how you get sales–by making yourself memorable.

So instead of coming to Artwalk hoping to make your booth fee–I lowered the fee so you can afford to come out and stand out while we still have Valley View.
