Submissions accepted November 15, 2018 – January 31, 2019

Now is your chance to pick a side (or show them both some love) and pay homage to your favorite band. The work in this exhibition will contain art inspired by a song of either the Beatles or the Rolling Stones. One side of the gallery will exhibit work inspired by the Beatles and the other side will exhibit work inspired by the Rolling Stones. They will converge in the middle. This exhibition will include art of various styles and mediums — works on paper, fiber, paintings, photography, small sculpture are all acceptable. Artists in the Hudson Valley are especially encouraged to submit work. Work will also be exhibited and available for purchase on the Emerge Gallery website.

Franconia Sculpture Park is a vibrant artist residency and nonprofit sculpture park located in the St. Croix River Valley region of rural Minnesota, 50 miles from Minneapolis/St. Paul. Through the artist residency program, Franconia awards competitive fellowships, internships, and metal-casting residencies to more than 40 emerging and mid-career visual artists each year, supporting the creation and exhibition of new, large-scale sculpture at our 43-acre sculpture
Deadline: February 2, 2019


The Intern Artist Program at Franconia offers undergraduate and graduate students, as well as emerging artists the opportunity to create large-scale three-dimensional artwork, develop their nascent artistic practice, receive mentorship from professional artists-in-residence, conduct public presentations, and participate in public engagement programs while in residency at Franconia. The rural setting and chance to work along side peers & mid-career artists creates a dynamic setting for artists to grow, learn, and mature.

The Intern Artist Program program began with the park’s founding in 1996 and has grown to support more than 200 emerging artists to date. Recognized by the National Foundation for the Advancement in the Arts for program excellence, the program is designed to bridge the gap between the academic world of artistic training and a professional career.

Deadline: February 9, 2019


The Hot Metal Residency Program offers artists and interns the opportunity to experiment with pattern-making and mold-making, exchange ideas and techniques, and exhibit finished work in a highly visible public park. Franconia transforms the outdoor studio into a temporary foundry for four weeks during the summer and through a collaborative effort, the Hot Metal Residency culminates in two pours with furnaces melting approximately 8,000lbs of iron. The first pour helps the pour crew become a cohesive team and produces the iron tile sculptures the public creates during mold-making workshops. The second pour is held a week later and is the time artists pour the molds created while in residence

Deadline: March 9, 2019
