DEADLINE: materials must be postmarked by June 4, 2010
STEP UP is a series of six solo exhibitions,open to emerging artists living in New York, New Jersey or New England.

As Real Art Ways grows, our commitment to supporting young and emerging artists remains a touchstone of the organization. With the addition of an exhibition space called the Real Room, there are now more opportunities for artists to exhibit their work at one of America’s leading alternative spaces.
The STEP UP exhibition series seeks to provide emerging artists in our region an exhibition and publication opportunity at a critical moment in their careers. While artists are permitted to propose the exhibition of existing work, the jury will place special emphasis on proposals that call for the creation of new work.
The jury will select work based on: the quality of the artist’s work, the innovation evidenced by the submitted work and proposal, the potential impact of the exhibition on the artist’s career and the economic and physical feasibility of the proposed exhibition.

THIS YEAR'S JURORS: Nato Thompson Chief Curator, Creative Times, NY
Barkley Hendricks Artist & Professor of Art, Connecticut College, CT
Nick Capasso Curator, DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, MA
Artists selected will receive an exhibition, an exhibition publication, and will be given an opportunity to participate in an artist talk in conjunction with the exhibit schedule. Information on all projects by selected artists including their final exhibition publication will also be available on our web site, which is viewed by 165,000 unique visitors per month.
Selections from the submitted slides, videos, and electronic media that are not chosen by the jury for exhibition will be considered for inclusion in a presentation called Slide Slam.
STEP UP '10 is made possible with the generous support of our Members, the National Endowment for the Arts, Sandy and Howard Fromson, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Dear My Dear Artists

There will be a Validation Reading on Monday, March 15th, 2010 at 10am in the Basement Auditorium of Tyler.

This reading is the second half of a piece that was located in the vestibule in the front of the building.  The Validation Box asked participants to write a painful memory/experience on a piece of paper.  It could be anonymous or they could include their identity.  They were informed that their submission would be read at a set time to an audience.  One could submit as many times as they would like.  If one disclosed their identity, it would accompany their memory in the reading.  

It is a one time reading and the audience is an important aspect of supporting the vulnerable air that will be created. 

Your presence would be greatly appreciated.

The reading will begin promptly at 10, refreshments provided.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Headlands Center for the Arts' Artist in Residence Program has earned international renown for bringing together pioneering artists and arts professionals in all disciplines- visual, performance, writing, interdisciplinary, music, composition, sound, film, video, and new media- from throughout the U.S. and the world. 

The Artist in Residence program provides a supportive working environment that allows time for artists to experiment, reflect and grow, both individually and collectively during their stay.

The program offers fully sponsored, live-in and live-out residencies to around 35 artists each year from March to November, and is distinguished in that there is no fee to participate. 

Through the support of generous donations, Artists in Residence are provided with a studio, shared housing and five meals a week for live-in artists. A studio and dinner twice weekly are provided for live-out artists. Stipends of up to $500/month are available pending funding and sponsorships secured each year. 

Residencies range from four to ten weeks, with an average stay of two months.

Artists are selected based upon merit, through a mixture of open application and invitation. Headlands currently accepts applications for residencies from artists working in all disciplines mentioned above. Headlands Center for the Arts also provides Bridge residencies by nomination to artists who are leaders in using the creative process as a catalyst for social change. 

Headlands offers residencies to artists from across the U.S. and around the world, from places such as Sweden, Denmark, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Italy, India, Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico and more than 20 other countries. 

Invitational Residencies

Special invitational residencies have also been offered in collaboration with other institutions, including The Richard C. Diebenkorn Teaching Fellowship at the San Francisco Art Institute; MATRIX, UC Berkeley Art Museum; The Lab in San Francisco and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. 

Headlands Center for the Arts invitation-only Bridge Project residency seeks to identify, nurture and share the work of remarkable role models who integrate artistic expression and techniques with influential activities in a wide range of organizations and places. Each of the artists selected to participate have made significant contributions in the areas of environmental art and advocacy, cultural identity, or community development, through their chosen disciplines. They demonstrate how visual, written, and performance works are tools for personal transformation, political change, awareness building, and social justice, transcending socioeconomic boundaries to empower communities and give voice to some of the most important issues of our time.
