Call for Exhibitors: Amdur Midwest Art Festivals 2013 Season • 18 Festivals • Deadline: Jan 18


Amdur Productions offers a series of 18 juried art festivals mostly in the midwest, with one in Florida. Because we picked this up so close to their deadline, Amdur is graciously waiving the late penalty for snail mail entries received by January 18th. The automated nature of online entries doesn’t allow the late fee to be waived, however Amdur will credit the late fee toward the booth charge should the applicant be accepted. To take advantage of this, please mention The Salmagundian.

Snail-mail applications can be obtained by email or phone (847) 926-4300.

Their website is very thorough and contains answers to almost every question imaginable: CLICK HERE

Application Deadline: Dec 14 • Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program


The EFA Studio Program was created to provide affordable studio space within a community of artists, facilitate career development, and promote public and critical exposure for our members. Members of the studio program are professional artists with a developed studio practice. Our members create work in a wide range of media and artistic sensibilities creating a vibrant and diverse community of peers.


Membership is available to artists through an application and selection process. Members receive a private studio for a period of up to two years that is subsidized at below market cost (scaled to financial need). Membership renewal is possible after two years through a reapplication process.


All studios are located in the EFA building at 323 West 39th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues in Midtown Manhattan.


Studios range in size from 200 to 435 square feet. Ceilings are 11 feet high. Membership fees vary according to the size and shape of the studio assigned to the artist, the studio’s location in the building, and the artist’s demonstrated financial need. Access to the studios is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. More information regarding EFA dues and studio membership fees can be found on the application information page.


Visual artists working in all forms of media are eligible. The program is designed for artists with a developed studio practice and career. Applicants cannot be enrolled in a college or university degree-granting program. Certain types of work cannot be accommodated for practical reasons, including large or heavy sculptures, some types of metal work, and work involving high noise levels or fire risk. Applications are judged solely on the quality of the work as presented. EFA does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation or marital status. Artists must be citizens of the United States, or must be legal U.S residents during their tenure.
