The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program - The Bronx Museum of the Arts

AIM 33 – Open call to artists
Deadline: September 5, 2012

The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts was established in 1980 with the objective to provide networking opportunities for emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area and to introduce their work to a greater audience.

AIM is structured as a “collaborative residency” in which participants work directly with established artists, collectors, art critics, curators, dealers, lawyers, and other art world professionals.

The 13-week seminar is offered annually to 36 participants, culminating with a biennial exhibition of the participants’ work in June 2013.
AIM sessions provide information, instruction, and professional guidance by addressing areas of practical concern to artists, among them curatorial practice, copyright law, exhibition and public art opportunities, gallery representation, grant writing, and marketing.

Sessions take place on Tuesdays from 6-8 pm at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and off-site locations. Among past participants in the AIM Program are Glenn Ligon—who was one of the early AIM artists and whose work was first exhibited at the Bronx Museum—and Polly Apfelbaum, Rina Banerjee, Amy Cutler, Anton Vidokle, and Pheobe Washburn.

Guest artists will receive an honorarium of $500 but will be expected to arrange for their installation and deinstallation. Artists will show in one of Vox's four gallery spaces and will be grouped with other artists by Vox's artist membership. A floorplan is available at

Call to Artists - Ground Arts Organization

Ground is a not for profit organization helping artists receive exposure and opportunities in the art market, while helping build art programs around the world for children.   We host ongoing exhibitions at our 2,000 sq. ft. space, and home base in the West Chelsea Arts Building in New York City.

We invite you to participate in our Summer 2012 competition, allowing you to win monthly prizes such as: a solo show, a published interview, an artist retreat trip, or a documentary, and take advantage of our interactive portfolio and event sharing. 
Our goal is to lend support and growth for emerging artists’ work, and to facilitate a continuing dialogue about this work.  Consistent collaboration between curators, artists, film makers, and critics provide for a continuing discussion in the contemporary art world. 

In addition, all Ground profits are used to assist schools around the world to build art programs. Encouraging a child to reach his or her creative potential inspires us.  Ground is not a charity, but rather an empowering exchange.  Please see our current project, “I am Haiti” on the Ground Arts website to learn more about what we do.

Deadline is August 10th, 2012

Open Call for Artists - Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia

Program description:
We invite artists to submit proposals for artist studio / residency use of the gallery space for
4 to 8 week periods from October 2012 through March 2013. By turning the transitional gallery space into temporary artist studios on the ground-level in an active arts neighborhood, we are hoping to allow for an atmosphere of engagement and conversation around the creative process. We will arrange for a relevant studio visit for the artist at the end of their studio term and the public will be invited to stop in throughout the duration of the residency to see the artist in progress. Each studio residency term will culminate in an evening with the artist that will coincide with the monthly Dumbo First Thursday event. The program is open to artists of all media practices and we encourage innovative and experimental project proposals.

After many installation/fabrication jobs, they have a lot of remnants. The leftovers are eagerly
used by many artists, sculptors, ad people.
Sculptors order bases for their statues, sculptures. If they are in Manhattan, they can even walk. “The quarry” is located in midtown manhattan. Artists use stone/tile for their presentations.
Sometimes they even rent RG’s stone for exhibits. RGNY sold tiles to Macy’s several times for their ads.
And yet about 2 tons of stone are marble/granite/onyx are thrown out every month. ‘Like’ the page to find out more!
