The project will see up to 10 individuals or teams paint or adorn a salmon sculpture with a design reflective of Canadian Heritage, New Brunswick waterways and the future of Canada, says Victoria Clarke, Executive Director of Discover Saint John. “The goal is to engage our community through meaningful experiences that celebrate our heritage, create strong connections, and inspire lasting legacies towards an exciting future,” says Clarke. “We look forward to enjoying this vibrant art installation with our local community and visitors alike.” The casts of Atlantic salmon will be created by local artist John Morgan to create an urban kaleidoscope of salmon sculptures standing more than six feet tall when mounted. The chosen participants will be given $2000 to invest in the creation of their concept. Brunswick Square Shopping Centre will house the salmon sculptures during the creative process allowing the public to see the participants in action. Upon completion the salmon sculptures will be temporarily installed throughout the city for public viewing until the end of 2017. Discover Saint John will be creating a walking tour for “Salmon Run” available on their Saint John Walking Tours app (iOS and Android.) Ultimately, the pieces will be auctioned off and moved to permanent locations with proceeds being split between the Interaction Children’s Theatre and the 10 chosen participants. Concept submissions are due by August 24, 2017. Selected participants will be notified on September 8, 2017. The creation period will be September 11 – October 2, 2017.

Women’s Studio Workshop: Art-in-Ed Workspace Residency

The Art-in-Ed Workspace Residency is a four- to five-week opportunity for artists with teaching experience; knowledge of intaglio, silkscreen, or hand papermaking processes; and an interest in working with local school students while creating their own work in WSW’s supportive and immersive environment. Artists can work on their own projects in one or more of our studios: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, photography, or ceramics. We invite applications from artists in all stages of their careers.

Our Art-in-Education (AIE) program is a model for arts education and operates in conjunction with the Kingston City School District. AIE provides a high quality arts experience by bringing students to a professional artist’s workspace and giving them concentrated time to learn printmaking, papermaking, and book arts.

All artists receive a thorough studio orientation. Artists are expected to work independently, though studio staff is always available to provide assistance. Deep technical assistance can be arranged for an additional fee. While you are required to provide your own expendable materials, WSW maintains a deep inventory of supplies and materials that you may purchase while in residence.

In exchange for teaching elementary and/or middle school students, residents receive on-campus housing and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions. Due to the AIE schedule, spring residencies are fully subsidized at a rate of $5,000/month, though artists are expected to pay for their own materials.

Fall residency: During a four-week residency, artists teach high school students in WSW’s studios one day/week. Workspace residencies are highly subsidized, so that fall AIE artists only pay $100/week in exchange for on-campus housing and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions.

Fall applications due by: April 1, midnight EST
Notification date: via email by June 1

WED, AUG. 2ND – SAINT JOHN, NB

InterAction School of Performing Arts

6pm-10pm  

THURS, AUG. 3RD – FREDERICTON, NB

Delta Fredericton

6pm-10pm

DESCRIPTION & PURPOSE OF CLASS FORMAT:

Be prepared to work fast, and learn a lot in the process! This intensive class is all about Doing, Doing, Doing! No lecturing. No homework. No watching footage. No long feedback sessions. Those things are valuable, but THIS class is Experiential and all about DOING as much material as we can!

In this workshop, you’ll learn the tricks of the trade to “up your game” in the unavoidable world of auditioning and scene study. This class will teach you how to make your auditions come alive. It will address both Film and TV auditions in the cold-read format.

This class will comprise of anecdotal stories and advice based on Cayman and Gia’s years of experience. Both directors will provide scenes from either projects they have cast or will be casting in the future as well as several pop-culture classics in film or TV. The actor will read the scene and begin to breakdown the scene’s objective and emotion, this will be an open discussion. Each actor will be paired up with a classmate to perform several cold reads to focus on instinct & story connection.

Cayman and Gia will also work with each actor to fine-tune their choices; giving direction and making the necessary adjustments to further develop their ability to connect with the story and convey the necessary message. We will be spending time working film and television scripts; while also including an element of improv allowing the actor to explore beyond the words on the page.

Through this scene study, actors will begin to develop a strong sense of confidence in making appropriate choices in their performances. They will develop the skill set of how to listen to direction given and then make “quick” adjustments in auditions. The goal of this class is to help the actor find his/her confidence and inner acting instinct to tackle script/scene work and to understand what makes them unique.

TOPICS COVERED: 

-Developing a strong audition ethic

-Cold Reading (accessing the content of the scene)

-Taking Direction and Redirection (learn how to LISTEN and not be shaken by redirection)

-Learning and Mastering your “Type” (current type; your style and type can change with maturity and opportunity)

The Short & Sweet Speaker Series is back for its second summer!

Artists of mixed disciplines presenting themselves and their work through a ‘Short & Sweet’ presentation. 20 slides, 20 seconds: no tech slip ups, no pressure. An informal twist to a stiff business event with the goal to bring folks together to find out what their peers are up to, bust everyone out of their studios to share our stories and perhaps a drink.


Want to be a part of this? We’re looking for artists of every discipline to participate in one of these fun and energetic evenings.

Send us an email at intern@artslinknb.com for more information or to sing up!


Saint John: Aug 1, Picaroons General Store, 32 Canterbury St.     – Fully booked!

St. Andrews: Aug 11, Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre, 139 Water Street, St.    – Fully booked!

Call to Artists – Public Art – City of St. Albert

The City of St. Alberts Art in Public Places program is seeking Expressions of
Interest from professional artists and artist teams to create one three-dimensional
public artwork in recognition of Canadas 150th Anniversary. This is a
competition for a public artwork that thoughtfully responds to the context of its
site location and the community of St. Albert, a vibrant, innovative and thriving
community.

The City has identified three possible site locations for the Canada 150 public
artwork. Situated within different areas of St. Albert, the locations provide distinct
public art opportunities that offer maximum public visibility, engagement and
enjoyment of the public art.

Artist(s)/teams are asked to select one primary site location from the three
provided, and develop an artwork concept for the site. As part of this competition,
artists are asked to include a public engagement component. Public engagement
includes any scope of work that engages community members, groups or
partners of St. Albert during the production phase of the artwork and/or following
installation of the artwork.

Project Budget $240,000 (inclusive of all costs)

Eligibility
This call is open to qualified artists and artist teams demonstrating the ability to
manage all phases of the public art process from research through to production
and installation. Qualified artist(s)/teams must be Canadian citizens either
residing in Canada or living abroad.
