EBFA Match Grant Fundraiser

  • East Bay Community Foundation (map)

The Positions and Situations Project was recently awarded a grant from the East Bay Fund for Artists at the East Bay Community Foundation!

The EBFA grant is a match fund grant, which means I need to fund raise the $7500 award amount through my fiscal sponsor Pro Arts Gallery before I can receive the grant. Please consider donating to the project today to help reach my match by November 30th! All donations are tax deductible.

Any size donation helps! Every donation will receive a limited edition Risograph 11x17 print.
All donations of $100 or more will receive a copy of Volume 2: 1974-1975, released in early fall.

Thank you for your support!

Chicago Art Book Fair

  • Chicago Athletic Association (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Organized by No Coast
Chicago, USA - November 16–18, 2018

The Chicago Art Book Fair began last year as an experiment in showcasing emerging directions and diverse legacies within small press arts publishing. The fair featured an international group of 125 arts publishers, small presses, book artists, comics artists, zinemakers and printmakers, with satellite programming and after parties. To our delight, our first effort made a splash with over 6,000 guests in attendance. In 2018, we look forward to bringing even more of Chicago's people together with another fantastic roster of artist vendors. The Chicago Art Book Fair will once again convene at the historic Chicago Athletic Association, and shall remain free and open to the public.

Teaching @ SFAI: PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN: DOCUMENTING YOUR WORK

4 sessions >> Tuesdays, June 5–26
6:30–9:30pm, Studio 16A, $195
No prerequisite. Some knowledge of photography helpful, but not necessary.

Maintaining an active archive of your work is increasingly important for online portfolios and applications. Photo documentation is often the only record of an exhibit or performance, which makes it important to do correctly. Over the course of four weeks, students will learn how to professionally document artwork for online portfolios, applications, and personal archives. Students will photograph both 2D and 3D artworks in a gallery and/or studio setting. They will learn best practices for photographing artwork accurately with an eye for even lighting, sharp focus, correct exposure, and accurate color representation using a color card. The class will conclude with retouching workflows in Photoshop and Lightroom for color correction, sharpening, compositing, batch processing, and exporting. We will cover basic file organization and back-up strategies for creating an archive that best represents students' work and practices. At the end of the class, students will have a skillset that they will utilize throughout their careers in the arts.
