Grants available for California artists

STATE BUDGET INCLUDES $8.8 MILLION ONE-TIME INCREASE IN CALIFORNIA ARTS COUNCIL FUNDING

Governor Brown and State Legislature boost investment in local community-building through the arts

About California Arts Council Grant Programs
As announced earlier this month, the Arts Council invested $16.3 million in arts programming statewide for the 2017-18 fiscal year. In 2017-18, a total of 1,080 grants were awarded for projects spanning the Arts Council’s 14 unique program categories, benefiting California’s students, artists, veterans, system-engaged youth, formerly incarcerated individuals, historically marginalized populations, and communities at large. Arts Council grant programs are administered through a multi-step, public process. Following an open call for applications, all submissions are adjudicated by peer review panels made up of experts from the arts field.

Interested members of the public, artists, arts organizations, and community leaders are encouraged to subscribe to the California Arts Council’s newsletter to learn about future grant opportunities as details become available.

About the California Arts Council’s Arts in Corrections Program
The state budget supports California’s Arts in Corrections program, as a part of the state’s multi-tiered investment in public safety, with an $8 million investment for the 2018-19 fiscal year. The California Arts Council’s Arts in Corrections program provides critical rehabilitative arts services to California’s incarcerated population and is made possible by an interagency partnership with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Currently in its fifth year, the program now reaches every CDCR adult institution in California and addresses the state’s critical public safety needs and priorities through the arts.

An official press release on the state budget from the Office of Governor Brown can be found here.

FYI’s for your viewing pleasure!

The 18th Annual
Water Conservation Poster Show
Every year, the San Diego Watercolor Society joins with the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department Water Conservation Program in acknowledging the children (K-6) who use art to communicate the importance of water conservation every day.

The artwork of the winners of the 2018 Kid’s Poster Contest, “How Am I a Water Conservation Hero,” was on display in the SDWS gallery.

An award ceremony was  held June 1 during the First Friday Reception for the June member’s show, “Bluesy Mash-Up.” Watch for it next year if you missed it this month!

Congrats to Dan Goldman and Shuang Li for their masterpieces at the Natural History Museum California Arts show. 

ALSO-

FYI: I ran across this on the internet and thought it would benefit our members who are serious artists looking to gain recognition in the land of art. Try this site and read what Jason Horejs, (owns Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona)  has to say about the reasons why artists do not do well showing their work to galleries.
