The Studios of Key West announces a call to artists to submit proposals for exhibition within the TSKW Sculpture Garden during the upcoming 2010/2011 season.

Thank you for your interest in TSKW.  We welcome proposals for residencies, creative projects, workshops, exhibitions, and professional development opportunities.

A TSKW Sculpture Garden Exhibit offers participating artists the opportunity to showcase original sculptural artwork in a small, unique garden environment adjacent to the Historic Armory; home of The Studios of Key West, in the much visited heart of Old Town, Key West, Florida.

All program proposals submitted by the deadline will be reviewed for consideration, and acknowledged within two weeks of receipt.

Proposals may include work that is already realized.  Site informed or site specific proposals are especially encouraged.

Artists will be responsible for the transport, installation, maintenance and de-installation of their work. Assistance from TSKW staff as well as volunteers can be arranged. Insurance of artwork, if desired, must be carried by the artist.

Selected proposals will receive an honorarium/stipend of up to $500 for a partial garden exhibit (front or rear) or $1000 for a full garden installation.  Artists will receive 50% of this at the completion of installation and the remaining 50% will be received at the completion of de-installation and the return of the garden to its original condition. TSKW is willing to help artists locate housing options, if needed, to help defray costs during installing and de-installing work.

Deadline: August 1, 2010  We accept proposals year round, this deadline will prioritize applications received for this coming season for accepted artists inclusion in our annual, full color, printed and on-line catalog.
Proposals will be juried by The Studios of Key West Sculpture Garden Committee.

Accepted artists will be notified by e-mail prior to September 7 and additionally contacted to finalize all exhibition details. There will be a TSKW Sculpture Garden Exhibitor contract to review for selected proposals. Proposals will not be returned to artists. TSKW will notify artists whose proposals were not selected via email. These proposals will be kept in the TSKW Sculpture Garden Exhibition Proposal waiting list file for one year.

Works remain the property of the artist, any inquiries regarding the sale of work will be forwarded to the artist or artists representative.  Any sales realized as a direct result of a Sculpture Garden Exhibition will be subject to An agreed upon commission
