In keeping with its mission to promote art awareness and support artists in Lawrence and the surrounding area, the Lawrence Art Guild Association sponsors an annual Career Opportunity Grant. A single award in the amount of $500 is given to a visual artist whose proposed project is deemed to have the most merit by the Guild’s review committee. Deadline for receipt of applications is December 27th, 2016.
The Career Opportunity Grant is designed to provide financial assistance to visual artists for activities that will significantly advance their work or careers. Lawrence Art Guild Association members and non-members are eligible. The cash awards are for specific, short-term opportunities, such as workshops, seminars, or travel to state or national events or other activities that strengthen the artist’s skills or standing in the art community.
Since its inception in 1962, the Lawrence Art Guild has been passionate about connecting and sustaining the community with the Arts through advocacy and education. Meetings are held monthly for all who are interested. Click the Membership Form link at the top right to learn how to join, and check back to see the latest updates about the Guild!
