Richmond Scholar's Rock and Opportunities to Consider
I found this scholar's rock on last week's Christmas walk. Richard Rosenblum has an excellent collection of scholar's rocks, but his are all Chinese. Mine is AMERICAN!
Anyways, here are some opportunities to consider. I haven't been applying for much of anything since starting this blog, I think the blog is meeting many of those needs, but will probably try for a few of the following (listed by application deadline) -
1/15, Abbey Awards - an extended residency at the British School at Rome. This would be GREAT. I've never even been to Europe. ($45).
1/16, Roswell - an extended residency in New Mexico. A completely different experience from what Rome would be, but equally GREAT. ($25).
Current VCU grads Eric Sall and Rachel Hayes did this together (they're married), recent grad Theresa Pfarr is there now.
1/31, Bethesda Painting Awards - I regret not applying for this last year, so I will definitely apply this year. Only open to painters in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. ($25).
Ron Johnson is one of the jurors! Hmm, that could go either way.
1/31, Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Program - nice, big, free studio space for a year in NYC. NO ENTRY FEE!!
2/1, Provincetown FAWC - I've wanted to do this for a long time. ($35).
