"CALL FOR PROPOSALS"
0000-00-00 until 0000-00-00
Banff Centre for the Arts
Banff, AB, CA Canada

The Banff Centre for the Arts has been a hallmark environment for creative artistic practice for many years. Through self-directed residencies (http://www.banffcentre.ab.ca/mva/cr/self.htm) in Media & Visual Arts, artists are provided with opportunities to make new works and to research creative concepts, ideas and theories. The Ceramics Studio, Sculpture Studio, and The Velvet Antler Print Studio (print making) are accepting proposals for self-directed creative residencies from professional artists for 2000. Artistic merit is the basis for selection. Proposals must be compatible with available studio space, facilities and resources.

Ceramics:
The Ceramics Studio offers an exceptional opportunity to work in a generous studio environment, with access to a broad range of equipment designed to support most aspects of ceramic practice. Firing resources include: 10 electric kilns, three natural gas kilns, a salt/soda kiln, two wood kilns (one two-chambered climbing kiln, one single-chambered fast-fire kiln) and raku facilities. Other features include clay mixing, a plaster room, glaze room, sandblaster, wheels, extruders and slab roller.

Sculpture:
Our Sculpture Studio offers an unparalleled opportunity for artists to work within a space that has easy access to wood, metal and stone-working tools. In our environment, participants can explore and define form, space, composition, subject, and content, using cross-disciplinary techniques and materials.

The Velvet Antler Print Studio:
The Velvet Antler is a print media facility providing professional facilities for lithography, intaglio, silkscreen, relief, letterpress and photo printmaking. The studio houses a manual lithography press for photo and waterless lithography, a variety of silkscreens, an angled light table and vacuum table for screen printing, two etching presses, an electric Vandercook letterpress, photo polymer platemaker, fully equipped darkroom with platemaker light unit, and a computerized graphic arts camera for filmwork.
