Looking for Writers: Hindsight


Beacon-based writer and editor and I would like to share a new project that will be of interest to members and supporters of Arts Mid-Hudson: Hindsight is a collection of stories about 2020, written by people just like you. We’re seeking stories from around the world that capture what it was like to wake up every day to a new normal — whether that means navigating emergencies as a first responder or tying the knot over Zoom. We’re particularly interested in material that gets up close and personal with the struggles of 2020 — not headlines or commentary on current events.

Hindsight is an independent, one-time publication. Content will be made available in two forms: Some stories will be shared on our website; the very best submissions will be compiled into a print anthology, which will be published in 2021.

Submission fee: None

Length: Up to 2,000 words

Compensation: Writers whose work is selected for the print anthology will receive a complimentary hard copy of the book, as well as a digital file.

Call for Gay Erotic Art

Barnwood, The Hudson Vallery’s Gay Erotic Art Show and Sale

Offering a New Venue for LGBTQ Artists Creating Art That Features the Male Form, Artist Submissions Are Now Being Accepted.

HUDSON VALLEY – BARNWOOD, an exhibition of homoerotic drawings, photographs, paintings, ceramics, and other artworks from artists based in the Hudson Valley, New York City, and beyond, has announced that it is returning in 2021. Following the success of the premiere event last fall, organizers are hosting three new editions of the gay erotic art show and sale, with the spring show happening April 30 – May 2, 2021 in Ulster Park, NY.

Happening 90 minutes north of New York City, BARNWOOD takes place in a rustic Ulster County hay barn whose hand-hewn beams date back to the 1850’s. Works are displayed on hog fencing and other agricultural fixtures throughout the space. Organized by Pink Stallion Events, the show and sale is a celebration of the male form from nude to lewd, dedicated to two things: promoting the talents of our exhibiting artists and pricing their work affordably so that guests can support them.

BARNWOOD is now accepting submissions for this year’s shows, and artists encouraged to submit up to 10 works for consideration online at The deadline for the spring show is March 19, 2021.

With no entry fees and a low twenty-five percent commission fee, BARNWOOD supports artists that have few venues to showcase and sell their homoerotic works. BARNWOOD’s debut show in October 2020 included works from 25 artists from our region and from around the world. During the first edition of the show, more than 200 original pieces were available for sale from renowned and emerging artists like Sedgwick Guth, Richard Taddei, William Noonan, Nathan Gwirtz, Benjamin Seamen, Scribbles Jensen, Jay Blotcher, Luke Benicase and many others.

“BARNWOOD is a unique new venue showcasing gay art and artists who’s work has been confined to the shadows and underground for too long,” explains Keith Batten, whose art was featured in the inaugural BARNWOOD show. “The rustic barn enhances the eroticism and primal feelings of sexuality so often expressed in the artworks. This is an exciting new art space destination, away from the confines of urban galleries.”

For 2021, the producers have added new opportunities to meet select artists as well as special times where art will be created on-site from live models. To support social distancing efforts, attendees must purchase tickets for timed ticketed entry into the show and masks are required.

For more information on BARNWOOD – including when tickets go on sale – follow Pink Stallion Events on Instagram or sign up for their mailing list at

Dorsky Museum ~ 14th annual Hudson Valley Artists Exhibition

Hudson Valley Artists: Who Really Cares?
Curated by Helen Toomer

July 7 – November 14, 2021

Who Really Cares?, the 14th annual Hudson Valley Artists exhibition, will be curated by Helen Toomer.

We invite artists to submit artwork that deals with the challenges of the past year and the re-imaginings of years to come, responding to the question “Who really cares?” asked by Marvin Gaye fifty years ago on the monumental album, “What’s Going On”:

I just want to ask a question
Who really cares?
To save a world in despair
There’ll come a time, when the world won’t be singin’
Flowers won’t grow, bells won’t be ringin’
Who really cares?
Who’s willing to try to save a world
That’s destined to die

—Marvin Gaye, Save the Children

Are you willing to try? What message do you want to share? How does art help? We are looking for a myriad of answers, solutions, thoughts and feelings created during this historic moment in time.

Artists are encouraged to submit works forged by or reflecting upon the turmoil of 2020—COVID-19, lockdown isolation, racial injustice, increased unemployment, the national election, climate crisis, and the various personal or public struggles this year has revealed and intensified. We welcome expressions of both grief and optimism—what has got you through, where you found joy, what hope you hold onto, or your vision for the future of our community.

Who Really Cares? will be connective, restorative, and diverse—just like the Hudson Valley. It will open in summer 2021, a time we look forward to in hopes of being able to connect with one another in person again.

Submission guidelines

The Hudson Valley Artists exhibition is open to all artists and artisans with a permanent mailing address and active art practice in the counties of Albany, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester who have not had a one-person major museum exhibition and who are not currently represented by a large commercial art gallery. The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art staff, board members, and their immediate families are not eligible. Students are not eligible. There is no application fee.

Artists are invited to submit a maximum of six images or files of work created in 2018 or later. In addition to traditional fine art and craft mediums, audio, video, film, and performance works are eligible for this exhibition. Brief proposals for new works to be created for this exhibition, including installation, social practice, or performance works, may also be submitted.

The Hudson Valley Artists Annual Purchase Award of $3,000 will be used to acquire one or more artworks from the exhibition for the Museum’s permanent collection. This Purchase Award is made possible thanks to the Alice and Horace Chandler Art Acquisition Fund. Artists whose work has been purchased in the past include Laura Cannamela, Richard Edelman, Charles Geiger, Holly Hughes, Patrick Kelley, Deb Lucke, Nestor Madalengoita, Stephen Niccolls, Libby Paloma, Elisa Pritzker, Adie Russell, and Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, among others.

About the jurors:

Nicelle Beauchene and Franklin Parrasch – cofounders of Parts & Labor in Beacon, NY.

Nicelle Beauchene opened her eponymous gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 2008 to promote the work of emerging local and international artists. In December 2012, the gallery relocated to a historic two-story building on Broome Street shared with Jack Hanley, where the two galleries switched exhibition spaces every other show. Beauchene spearheaded this site-specific move to expand upon the Lower East Side’s histories of collaboration, cooperation, and flexible exhibition contexts.

For several years, the gallery operated an off-site project space staged in an apartment, allowing artists to reconfigure the boundaries of the domestic sphere. Nicelle Beauchene opened a new, independent home at 7 Franklin Place in Tribeca in December 2020. Gallery artists include Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Jonathan Baldock, Yevgeniya Baras, Richard Bosman, Elliott Jerome Brown Jr., Alex Bradley Cohen, Jennifer Paige Cohen, Louise Despont, the Estate of John Evans, Jordan Kasey, Jim Lee, Andrew Masullo, the Gee’s Bend Quiltmakers, Eleanor Ray, Daniel Rios Rodriguez, Bruce M. Sherman, Willie Stewart, Ruby Sky Stiler, Alice Tippit, and Chris Wiley.

In mounting over 12 years of exhibitions across multiple venues, Nicelle Beauchene has remained dedicated to championing emerging practices, building the careers of mid-career and historic artists, and contributing to the cultural dialogue in the US and abroad.

In 2019, Nicelle Beauchene cofounded, with fellow dealer Franklin Parrasch, Parts & Labor Beacon, an exhibition space dedicated to staging two-person exhibitions. Creating specific conversations between younger, mid-career artists and their historically recognized predecessors, Parts & Labor Beacon’s intimate framing re-contextualizes standard histories of art. The project has worked with a range of artists including Lois Dodd, Shara Hughes, Xylor Jane, Ray Johnson, Al Loving, John McAllister, and Deborah Remington. Nicelle Beauchene was the President of the New Art Dealers Alliance from 2010-2017.

Franklin Parrasch Gallery began in 1986 with a program guided by a conscious reflection upon the process of creativity as it relates to human evolution.

Over the past two decades, the gallery has established a profile of exhibiting Los Angeles artists whose careers emerged in the 1960s and whose aesthetic alignment with Minimalism developed independently from that of their East Coast contemporaries. Through numerous group exhibitions, the gallery has explored artistic philosophies specific to West Coast subcultures, including hot-rodding and surfing, and how these sensibilities informed the works of Los Angeles artists of this time period.

The gallery consistently organizes shows that consider diverse evolutionary theories, with a focused sensitivity to the migration of ideas and aesthetic development as expressed by a wide range of artists who employ innovative practices.

Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency for Families by Collar Works

Collar Works

We invite all artists with families to apply to our inclusive, kid-friendly, week-long residency on the late Elizabeth Murray’s 77-acre farm in Granville, New York. With the generous support of the Sustainable Arts Foundation, FIVE parent artists will receive a flexible $500 stipend, time, space, childcare as needed, and meals while in residence.

“The late Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007), a prolific artist and mother of three, believed that artists should not have to choose career over family – a pressure many emerging artists and parent artists still feel today. Since its inception, creating an environment that is unique and stands out as a safe space for creative risk-taking, personal growth, and respite, especially for parent artists, has been a core goal of the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency by Collar Works.”

About The Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency by Collar Works

The Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency (EMAR) program by Collar Works is designed to provide emerging, underrepresented, and established artists an immersive, supportive, productive, and communal atmosphere for art-making and dialogue on a bucolic 77-acre farm in Granville, NY. The summer residency offers 2 and 4-week residencies for individual artists and 1-week residencies for families.

EMAR aims to create opportunities for artists to take risks and develop new contemporary works across many art forms, primarily visual and literary arts while engaging in meaningful dialogue with fellow residents and arts professionals.

Our goal is to create a residency program that responds to the critical needs of emerging artists and artists as parents while offering a program that reflects the rich cultural environment of today through an active commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion. Since its inception, creating an environment that stands out as a safe space for creative risk-taking, personal growth and respite has been a core goal of the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency.

Elizabeth Murray believed that each person deserves an opportunity to make their art and for their art to be visible on equal platforms. With that in mind, our goal is to provide space and access for all, regardless of differences of race, age, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, national origin, migratory status, disability/abilities, political affiliation, veteran status and/or socioeconomic background.

For more than two decades, Elizabeth Murray and her husband Bob Holman, together with their children, split their time between a TriBeCa loft and a classic farmhouse in Washington County, New York. Murray, who passed away in 2007, was a groundbreaking artist. Her many honors include a Skowhegan Medal in Painting in 1986, a MacArthur “genius” grant in 1999, and a career retrospective at MoMA in 2005. Holman, a poet and arts activist, founded the Bowery Poetry Club in 2002 and produced the PBS series The United States of Poetry (1996) and Language Matters (2019). In 2017, the Murray-Holman family partnered with Collar Works to design a summer residency program for visual artists.

For many years, the farm served as both a summer home for the Murray-Holmans and a creative retreat for Elizabeth Murray, whose studio was located in the large, cathedral-like dairy barn. Given the history, location, and amenities, the family felt that the creative use of the property and its natural surroundings would carry on Elizabeth Murray’s legacy.

2021 Family Residency Information

The Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency by Collar Works will invite up to 5 artists together with their families to spend one week in residence at EMAR. Artists and their families will be provided a private bedroom (families may need to room together) with shared bathrooms in the large farmhouse, as well as communal living room spaces, kitchen, and a library featuring Elizabeth Murray’s personal artbook collection. In addition, artists have a semi-private studio in the same barn that Elizabeth Murray worked in during summers with her family. The property also features a ‘Kids Studio’ for children and family members. Property amenities include a swimming pool, pond, and 77 acres.

The 2021 Elizabeth Murray Family Residency is a fully-supported opportunity available for up to 5 artists and their families during August 14-21, 2021. Outside of the $25 application fee, there is no cost to participate for accepted artists in the Family Residency program. Meals will be provided. Accepted artists will receive a $500 stipend to be used at their own discretion towards travel, materials, or other associated costs related to this opportunity. Although we welcome partners to join and assist with childcare, we also are fully supportive of artists who want or need to attend solo with their children. Given the rural nature of the program, Collar Works will work with each artist on a case by case basis to ensure the necessary support is in place for onsite child-care.

The goal of the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency for Families is to provide the time, space, and connections parent artists desire, together with an immersive, enriching experience for the entire family.

Important COVID-19 Protocol

Collar Works will be taking serious safety precautions to minimize as much risk as possible. Understanding that guidelines change as the risk changes, every effort will be made to keep the residency as safe as possible. Common areas will be cleaned and sanitized regularly. All staff will be tested regularly. There are private bedrooms and studios for artists (families may need to room together), but shared bathrooms, kitchen, and common areas in the historic farmhouse. We will be asking all individuals to wear masks outside of their bedrooms, including in the studios, at all times, with the exception of children age 2 and younger, and while eating meals. Meals will be prepared safely by a chef and served with appropriate distancing measures in place. Once on-site, we ask artists to limit their travel off-site as much as possible to mitigate risk and community spread.

Travel Restrictions and Quarantine: Given what we know now about COVID-19, together with New York State recommendations, we are gathering information from each artist to be used in the planning process. It is important to note, at this time, based on New York State guidelines, Collar Works will require all EMAR participants to produce a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival to EMAR. If traveling from outside of the New York State, participants will need to produce TWO consecutive negative tests. One 72 hours prior to travel to NYS, followed by taking another test 4 days after arrival. Artists from outside of NYS must produce a second negative COVID-19 within 72 hours of arrival to EMAR. Artists will be asked to quarantine off-site in their own accommodations during this process. This essentially means artists will be responsible for their own accommodations for 4-7 days prior to your arrival at EMAR for the start of your residency. Keeping our artists, their families, and staff safe and healthy is our utmost priority. We acknowledge that situations around restrictions, guidelines, and access to testing and vaccination may change and impact our planning and/or requirements. We will keep an open dialogue between administrators and artists to ensure appropriate planning.

The 2021 Elizabeth Murray Family Residency by Collar Works is supported by The Sustainable Arts Foundation.

Grant~ The National Academy of Design ~ The Abbey Mural Prize

The National Academy of Design invites artists, architects, arts and community-based organizations, and other nonprofits to submit applications for the 2021 Abbey Mural Prize until the application’s deadline on April 23, 2021, at 11:59pm ET.

Created in 1932 through an endowed bequest in honor of illustrator and muralist Edwin Austin Abbey NA, the Abbey Mural Prize awards grants to support the commission of public murals in the United States. Building on a tradition of public murals as instruments of social activism, neighborhood revitalization, and community engagement, the Abbey Mural Prize aims to broaden support and recognition of the vital role that murals play in making public space more open and accessible.

Juried by the Academy’s Abbey Mural Committee, the Abbey Mural Prize supports projects by individuals or organizations with grants ranging from $10,000 to $40,000. Grants will be awarded for the creation or restoration of public murals, especially those that promote accessibility, serve local audiences, and inspire community dialogue. Funded projects must be in or on public buildings or on buildings owned by charitable institutions; otherwise, there are no restrictions. While murals are conventionally defined as paintings or mosaics on a wall, the Abbey Mural Prize encourages proposals that broaden the definition of what a public mural can be.

The Abbey Mural Prize is made possible by the Edwin Austin Abbey Memorial Trust Fund for Mural Painting in the United States. Since 1940, the Academy has awarded prize funds to dozens of public mural initiatives throughout America.
