Grant Seeking Workshop – Find Funding for your Organization

RSVP is required, but the workshop is free and open to the public
The Community Arts Program at Hanover College
In Regional Arts Partnership with the Indiana Arts Commission
On behalf of the people of Indiana, the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) advocates engagement with the arts to enrich the quality of individual and community life. The Community Arts Program at Hanover College brings arts and cultural opportunities to southeastern Indiana with student and professional performances and exhibits on the historic Hanover College campus.
Serving Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, Scott, & Washington Counties
As government funding for the arts shrinks and foundations receive more funding applications, it’s more important than ever to prepare competitive grant packages.
This day-long workshop will cover where to seek funding in our Region for arts-related activities how to figure out what a funder “really wants” how to prepare a budget and a project assessment that sets you up for additional funding how to write a persuasive narrative that gets the funder as excited as you are about your project
Three opportunities; three locations:
May 23rd—Hanover College in Jefferson County
June 6th—Arts Council of Southern Indiana in Floyd County
August 23rd—Arts Council of Southern Indiana
The workshop will be conducted by Geoffrey Weiss, Grants Development Officer for the Rivers Institute at Hanover College. Dr. Weiss has over ten years experience teaching grant writing with the University of Kentucky Medical School and was most recently the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Picturing America School Collaboration grant.
The Regional Arts Partnership is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities
The Indiana Arts Commission and the Community Arts Program at Hanover College is sponsoring a series of workshops for Region 12 artists and arts organizations.
Grant Seeking Workshop—Find Funding for Your Arts Organization
Region 12 seeks volunteers to serve on our Regional Advisory Committee. Help set the direction of the arts in southeastern Indiana.

See It Now: Mannequin Series

In Kentucky Art Exhibits, Kentucky Artist, See It Now on July 15, 2011 at 1:00 am

Artist Statement:

I incorporate the form of the nude female mannequin in my paintings to serve as an iconic symbol. These hybrid forms reveal a parallelism with society’s cultural ideals. Their identical, clone-like appearance suggests a culture that persuades its members to conform. The compositions express a type of confinement: as a specimen in attempts to preserve youthfulness, undergoing invasive surgery to be physically ideal or manipulating genes at the source of creation – to reach cultural ideals.

On exhibit at the Mellwood Art Center in the Pigment Gallery, hosted by K.A.S. Gallery.

Artists at work in Mellwood’s courtyard….

In Art Classes, Call to Artists, Kentucky Artist on July 11, 2011 at 7:38 pm

The Mellwood Art Center is located at 1860 Mellwood Avenue, Louisville Kentucky. This unique building is located between Zorn Avenue and Brownsboro Road. Mellwood is known to many Louisville  natives as the old Fischer meat packing plant.

Now, Mellwood houses roughly over 200 tenants from artist and art galleries, to a cafe, dance studios and novelty shops.  The tenants of Mellwood has formed a non-profit organization named M.A.C., which will host demo days on the courtyard, the second Saturday of each month.

This allows artist to work outside their studio and gain exposure. Patrons my see performers, painters, wood carving or learn how to create a glass center piece. If you are an artist and would like to be a part of Demo Days, send an email to info@k-a-s-gallery.com.

Kentucky Artist: Charles Shelton

Erotic Art by Charles Shelton 

Charles Wayne Shelton II was born in 1976 in Ashland, Kentucky where he currently resides with his wife, Vanessa. In 2010 his image “Knothole“ was selected by Erotic Signature to represent him as one of the top 200 erotic photographers in the world in its fourth annual collection which was published later in the year.

Charles has exhibit his art at galleries and exhibits across the country and in Europe including “The Dirty Show“ in Detroit, The Art Undressed Touring Exhibit (Miami, New York, Montreal, Chicago, and Los Angeles), The Kentucky Art Speaks Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky and the “Persona Art Festival“ in London. Shelton’s image “Pillbilly” has also been accepted into the permanent collection at the Kinsey Institute Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana.

Charles Shelton considers himself to be extremely socially conscious  and hopes that his best work captures trends, evolution’s of our culture, or at least in his small “Hillbilly-Chic” niche located in the Appalachian Mountains. His involvement with nude photography over the past 12 years has caused him to experience incredible persecution in a community that has historically exhibited signs of being sexually repressive. Despite the ignorant attacks and slander of others he has persisted in bringing  his visions and inspirations into this world. If you would like to contact Charles Shelton to find out more about him and his work you can email him at famousfotografy@live.com.
