CALL FOR ART – TRIANGLE COMMUNITY ARTISTS GALLERY 2021-2021
About the Triangle Community Artists Gallery partnership
The Durham Art Guild and Triangle Community Foundation are excited to continue a partnership that brings local, curated art to the Foundation’s offices located on the 2nd floor of The Frontier at Research Triangle Park. The Triangle Community Artists Gallery, housed within the Foundation’s office space, will host juried artwork from local artists for periods of six months at a time using art to spark dialogue and civic engagement. This region has a rich and vibrant arts community, and we believe that this partnership is an opportunity to showcase and connect local artists with our community in a meaningful way.
The Foundation is interested in displaying medium to larger scale artworks for this next exhibit season that are visually striking and/or thought provoking. As a community-centered foundation, they also appreciate work that relates to their mission and Impact Areas: Cultural Arts, Capacity Building, Education and Youth, and Sustainable Communities, – all things working together to ensure everyone thrives. However, these are not requirements for consideration.
“During these challenging times, The Triangle Community Foundation and Durham Art Guild created a unique opportunity for me as a local studio artist to grow my audience and my art practice. Overall my timely message of hope and courage showcased in my exhibition, ‘Pure Luxury Quarantine Edition’, was embraced by a new audience as well as long-time collectors of my work.”
-JP Jermaine Powell, Triangle Community Artists Gallery 2020-2021
AWARDS & BENEFITS
A $1,000 honorarium will be given to one of the selected artists through this partnership for 2020-2021. One of the artists will be given a $1,250 honorarium and distinguished as a Kathryn H. Wallace Award winner which recognizes a local artist who has “through their art and/or other activities, made a significant contribution to the local community”.
Hundreds of business leaders, local philanthropists, nonprofit executives, and board members from across the region and beyond visit the Foundation’s office and gallery throughout the year. Triangle Community Foundation is also wishing to grow their private art collection and make purchases, at their discretion, from the Triangle Community Artists Gallery. There is potential for exhibiting artists to have a work of art purchased from the exhibition for this collection.

CALL FOR ART NORTH CAROLINA MEDICAL BOARD PHASE I LOBBY 2021-2021
The Durham Art Guild (DAG) is excited to announce a new Art@Work Program partnership working with the North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB). We are partnering to connect their facility, staff and guests more deeply with local and regional artists and to enhance their space. NCMB has a modernly designed office space in Raleigh where they wish to showcase rotating local artwork in some key common areas. The first Phase I Priority Area is for one larger and prominent artwork in the middle of the feature wall in their main lobby entrance pictured below.
To help connect with their mission, NCMB has a strong desire for the artists or artworks they showcase to have some connection to medicine – either as the subject of the work or the artist. However, this is not an absolute requirement for consideration.
ABOUT THE SPACE & IDEAL ARTWORK
There are about 55 staff members and 13 Board members who regularly go to this building. In addition, our visitors include those we license (physicians and physician assistants); attorneys; leaders and staff of member associations, insurance companies, and state agencies; members of the public; reporters, etc. Nearly everyone who visits has some sort of interaction/engagement with medicine.
NCMB will select one artist/artwork per six-month display for the first cycle of this partnership. Artworks that are 2-D and in the range of 4 ft x 6 ft to 6 ft x 8 ft in size are ideal for the designated alcove.
AWARDS & BENEFITS
Each selected artist will receive a $2,500 stipend for the lending of their artwork for six months. NCMB will also work with DAG to present a virtual or in-person educational program to connect and engage the artist with NCMB staff. Each artist will receive a $250 stipend for their involvement in that event.
Submission Deadline: July 9, 2021 at 11:59pm
