Teach a Visiting Artist Course

The Art Department at Warren Wilson College offers a semester-long Visiting Artist Course each fall and spring semester. This is a 4-credit class typically taught by an artist living and working in the Asheville area. The purpose of the course is to create an opportunity for students to experience perspectives or artistic processes that are different than what is offered in the regular art department curriculum. This is a temporary (semester-long adjunct) position within the Art Department. Applicants must have an MFA and/or related teaching experience.

Artists interested in teaching a Visiting Artist Course should send a cover letter, CV, and proposed course description by email to hr@warren-wilson.edu. Electronic submissions are required. Proposals will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Preference will be given to proposals received by March 7, 2016 for the Fall 2016 semester.

Call for Sculpture Artists

CALL FOR SCULPTURE ARTISTS:

The Caldwell Arts Council and the City of Lenoir, NC seek sculptors interested in participating in our outdoor sculpture sales gallery. Tucker’s Gallery is a public/private partnership project between the City of Lenoir and the Caldwell Arts Council. The “Gallery” is located in planters throughout the downtown area.

Artists interested in participating should submit an application to the Caldwell Arts Council before September 30, 2015.  Application forms are available at www.caldwellarts.com or by calling 828-754-2486.  Selected sculptures must be suitable for outdoor installation. The pieces will be on display for one year beginning in October or November.  All selected pieces will be awarded a stipend of $200 to help with delivery and retrieval costs.  If an artwork sells there is a 30% sales commission to the Caldwell Arts Council, and the artist may bring a replacement sculpture for the remainder of the contract duration.  The artwork on display will be covered by a liability insurance policy.  Twelve sculptures will be selected for display.  Each artist may submit up to 3 works for consideration.

ABOUT TUCKER’S GALLERY:

Tucker’s Gallery was started with a Grassroots Arts Grant from the State of North Carolina.  Caldwell County is known for its signature sculpture collection of 81 pieces of original sculpture that are on display throughout the county. People travel to our community to see this unique offering.  While the permanent collection is installed county-wide, Tucker’s Gallery allows visitors to see a concentrated number of sculptures within a small geographic area, and unlike the permanent collection, allows for purchases of artwork.

The Caldwell Arts Council is located at 601 College Avenue SW, Lenoir NC. Phone 828-754-2486; e-mail info@caldwellarts.com; website www.caldwellarts.com.

This program is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
