Community Arts Partnership is awesome!
One of the Community Arts Partnership’s primary goals is to get funds into the hands of artists and arts organizations for programs and projects that will enrich Tompkins County’s already vibrant arts community.
The grants listed not only provide seed money for those programs, they also offer artists and organizations the opportunity to develop plans and budgets that will make their projects easier to replicate in the future.
Four Upcoming Grant Deadlines:
Gallery Night is August 1

You Can Get There From HereKaleb Hunkele and Nathan Lewis of Standard Art Supply & Souvenir and Ulysses Bunker Press, present new work: You Can Get There From Here. Hunkele & Lewis’ collaboration across modes of production meets here in a series of work on paper that takes up common tropes like education, travel, domesticity, military service, agriculture, and business only to challenge and recharge them with new meaning. Each piece in the series is a large-scale screen print on handmade paper.

New SOS Grant Due August 11.
Robin Schwartz, Program Director
The Community Arts Partnership has a new grant program.
SOS Tompkins (Strategic Opportunity Stipend) is designed to support opportunities that have the potential to significantly impact an artist’s professional career. Artists can apply for costs associated with these opportunities, such as travel costs, performance expenses, exhibition costs, and the like. SOS is not for the creation of work without a career building opportunity attached…

Deadline is Monday, August 11, 2014 for opportunities from August 2014 through August 2015.While you are there, please also take a look at our

I could look at these all day.
Hm. I guess it’s a little jarring to see them right next to each other. But somehow I feel like they express the same sentiment.

I don’t know what else to call these? They’re very specific, what can I say. I made them to post on Pinterest and Twitter. I suppose they’re a little passive aggressive, but I’m not as confrontational as I used to be back in my Flickr heyday, and I like the idea of these perhaps being reusable and less direct than having on-the-spot dialogues. I don’t like making folks feel attacked or making them feel obliged to engage in dialogue. But I don’t mind if they see something I post.
I’m going to go post these on Pinterest right now, and will probably continue to do so whenever I’m feeling annoyed by photos of tipis and sheepskins, and whenever I’m getting particularly tired of the #mansplaining.
(I love everyone, by the way. I live by Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s words, “We should regard those who point out our faults as if they were pointing out treasure” and work hard at rooting out and working against my own racist cultural appropriation, my own whitesplaining, and my own oppression of animals of many species, including sweatshop workers and other humans. So call this a cultural critique, not a personal one. Please know that I’m taking issue here with actions and not people, and that I critique my own actions even more critically. These graphics are offered in a spirit of good humor and arty experimentation, as a public way to work out a frustration with something happening in a public forum. Peace and love!)
I have more of these planned, I think. Let me know if you have any intersectional gripes you want drawn / written, or make your own and tell me about them. If you know of other art like this I’d love to hear about it.
And please tell me what you think of these. I’m deciding if I want to be at all negative; I’d been trying so hard to be positive for a while that I was lacking in honesty, but I’m still very much up in the air about it. Thanks for your opinions and ideas!
