Artists Called to Submit Design Proposals for UMA, one of TIME Magazine’s “World Greatest Places”

SANTA ROSA BEACH, FL (October 3, 2019) – The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) in partnership with the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) join two of South Walton, Florida’s most cherished resources, the arts and the Gulf of Mexico, with the Underwater Museum of Art (UMA). Named by TIME Magazine as one of 100 of the “World’s Greatest Places,” the UMA is the first and only permanent underwater sculpture museum in the United States. Artists are invited to submit proposals for the third art installation to be deployed Summer 2020. The UMA is located off the coast of Northwest Florida, less than one mile off the coast of Grayton Beach State Park in South Walton, Florida.

This opportunity is open to artists and artist teams. While a demonstrated history of collaboration completing large- and small-scale public art projects is preferred, all artist applications will be considered. Following the application deadline, the CAA will convene a panel of arts and marine environment specialists to review the applications and select proposals for completion and installation. Seven artists will be commissioned to develop design proposals and create a 3D piece of original artwork to be permanently installed in the Underwater Museum of Art. Each artist will receive a $6,500 stipend inclusive of design fees, materials, labor, fabrication, construction, packing materials, shipping, and transportation.

"Illuminations" Exhibit, City of Sequim

IlluminationsCity of Sequim: The City Arts Advisory Commission (CAAC) is seeking entries of art, in any medium, for the next exhibit to be displayed in the lobby of the Civic Center, located at 152 W. Cedar Street beginning January 3, 2020.

The theme for this exhibit is “Illuminations”. Without illumination, there is no color and little form; therefore, the artists’ first teacher is always light. This theme is a celebration of how light is portrayed in painting, used as a shadow element dancing over sculptures, and projected through colored glass or from neon or LED works. As long as the artwork somehow “highlights” light, then it fits the theme.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, December 9, 2019 at 4pm.

Only digital applications will be considered. To enter, complete the form at this link which allows you to download up to three images (preferably 300 dpi) per entry:

All entries will be juried by the CAAC on December 12, 2019 and artists will be notified of their status on December 13, 2019.

An Artist’s Reception will take place on Friday, January 3, 2020 from 5pm to 8pm, and the exhibit will be on display until March 27, 2020.

Sculpture St. John Symposium

International Sculpture Symposium St. John in New Brunswick, Canada

NWSSA Member Oliver Harwood shared his experiences of participating in this 6-week long granite sculpture symposium at our 2019 Pilgrim Firs Symposium. He has made us aware that the deadline to participate isd quickly approaching!

About the Symposium:
Building on the success and enthusiasm generated by the first two symposiums held in 2012 and 2014, Sculpture Saint John hosted even larger events in 2016 and 2018. The educational component was expanded to include more schools, over 1200  visiting students and more sculpting workshops open to all age groups. Free demonstrations were introduced by New Brunswick artists Alaina Baird, Ken Waiwood, Darren Byers and Fred Harrison. The partnership with the Saint John Arts Centre saw an increase in interactive workshops, allowing the public an opportunity to be involved in building with clay and soapstone carving. A gallery exhibition to display many of the finished pieces topped off unique learning experiences.

The outstanding support of our sponsors allowed Sculpture Saint John once again to host a world class sculpture event, the largest of its type in North America. Over 32,000 visitors came to the site from the city, the region and every continent bringing the total number of visitors to over 100,000 during our three symposiums. They witnessed the creation of monumental public art. They met and spoke with artists of international stature. They learned about the creative process. And they now visit the partner communities, each of which has an enduring piece of public art complementing the culture of their community.

Deadline to Apply for the 2020 Symposium: October 1, 2019
