Recognizing the power of collective creativity, Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City, Michigan, is seeking original works of art for the exhibition One, Together.

Though the act of making art is often thought of as individual and solitary, many artists rely on a regular exchange of ideas with fellow artists and mentors in order to keep their creative practice going. Many more artists even work collaboratively to create their work. Beyond human relationships, some artists even consider the materials as collaborators. This exhibition aims to explore collaboration, collectivity, and togetherness through creative practice.

Artists are encouraged to consider the theme broadly and creatively.

Possible approaches to the theme include:

  • Artwork created collectively by more than one artist
  • Artwork that encourages participation
  • Artwork exploring concepts of togetherness or collaboration
  • A creative practice that relies on assistance by or collaboration with multiple participants

Location: Traverse City’s Carnegie Galleries and Online!

Emergency Grants – Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant: ONGOING

This program has no deadlines

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. 

The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

This program has no deadlines.
