GCAC’s OPPArt: Opportunities for Artists

GCAC’s OPPArt: Opportunities for Artists comes to ITLOOKSLIKEITSOPEN at 13 East Tulane

“Artists in the Community” is GCAC’s newest grants and services program designed to support individual artists in the community. New fellowships, supply grants and much more will be available in 2011. While these opportunities are not available to students, it is never too early to learn about what opportunities are out there to prepare for a career in Columbus as a professional artist. Join Ruby Classen in this informative session where she will de-mystify GCAC’s Artists in the Community application program and provide some one-on-one consultation in an informal environment. Bring your ideas and questions.

RSVP to attend this event, rclassen@gcac.org .

Walk-ins welcome, space allowing. Some seating provided, feel free to bring a chair or pillow.

All are welcome to join and sit quietly together with us. Seth Josephson will facilitate with a short discussion of loving-kindness meditation. Participants are welcome to practice any form of meditation or prayer they feel comfortable with and are invited to share their techniques and the experience of getting to know themselves with awareness.

"When compassion fills my heart,
free from all desire,
I sit quietly like the earth.
My silent cry echoes like thunder
throughout the universe."
-Jalal Ad-Din Rumi

updates, shift and change in the studio

the studio at 13 east tulane is shifting and changing over time. we originally started out with a humble studio on summit in the winter of 2009. the idea for a space was conceived of by jamie boyle and herb vincent peterson, who later invited aimee sones, adele mattern and ryan agnew to join them. the studio on summit was not the right location and the group moved to our present location at 13 east tulane in the spring of 2009.

lots of making and events have occurred since then and are archived here on the blog.

adele relocated to massachusetts where she continues to practice. her website is www.adelemattern.com

jamie boyle recieved a greater columbus arts council neighborhood arts program grant to support the video support group film school in the spring of 2010.

jessica larva joined the studio in the fall of 2009.

mike shiflet joined the studio in the fall of 2010 and began hosting the Monumental Documents Listening Sessions and It Sounds Like It's Open on tuesday evenings.
