ACHF Arts Access
In the grant year, I will create between 10 and 12 new works, including large-format works on canvas and panels. I will evaluate my outcomes based on my output of art. Because I will have the needed supplies and money to supplement my time making art, I can work unfettered and produce more. 2: I will have my work professionally photographed and documented so I may apply for exhibitions locally and nationally. When I have my work professionally photographed I will be able to apply for exhibitions and plan on securing at least three new exhibitions for the 2013-2014 year. These are outcomes I expect, as a direct result of receiving the grant.
I completely finished thirteen new works: 36 x 38 inch, 16 x 20 inch, 20 x 16 inch, 30 x 24 inch, 24 x 24 inch, 12 x 18 inch, 12 x 18 inch, 12 x 18 inch, 12 x 18 inch, 12 x 18 inch, 18 x 18 inch, 12 x 16 inch, 18 x 24 inch. A 24 x 36 inch painting I began prior to the grant was finished as well. Three more medium to large works are nearly complete and will need more supplies by way of paint to finish. In hindsight, I realized that for the amount of time I expended on making the new work I should have applied for more money for supplies and my time. I did surpass what I thought I could do within the time allowed and with the amount of materials. I was able to have nearly all of the work photographed and uploaded to my website. I was able to use the images that I had photographed and my website information to apply for and receive: three exhibitions in Minnesota and two in WI. One of the shows in Minnesota was a two-person exhibition in Minnesota and the other two were group shows. In addition, and as a direct result of this grant, I will have a two-person exhibition in September, 2014 in Albert Lea, MN at the Riverland Community College. Another exhibit is slated for January 2015 at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wisconsin. I showed my work to the community during Art Attack and Art-A-Whirl and received additional support and was asked to show my work in a few other venues in the future. I have applied for approximately six other national exhibits and one international exhibit and will have additional upcoming shows as a direct result of this grant.
