Putnam Arts Council's Call to Visual Artists for
the 2015 A. Eric Arctander Visual Arts Grant

In its second year, the purpose of this grant is to assist a VISUAL ARTIST (25-40 years old) in their development in the arts and in their career. The grant stipend is $1,000.00 and will be awarded in August of 2015. Artists must reside in either Putnam, Westchester or Dutchess counties in NY and must have an email address. Other restrictions apply.

The Eric Arctander Artist Grant was created last year by family and friends of the artist, who passed away in October of 2013 at age 68.  Eric’s career in art started with under graduate and graduate degrees in fine art from The School of Visual Arts, The Art Institute of Chicago and Pratt Institute.  Later, while working in his studio during the day, he was invited to teach evenings at the Graduate School at Pratt Institute and at the Undergraduate School at School of Visual Arts.  His areas of original research and lecturing on the subjects of the Tribal Art of Africa, Oceania and North America as well as the History of Graphic Imaging, informed his career as a visual artist as well.  In addition to teaching, he was a guiding presence on the board of Collaborative Concepts Inc., a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to presenting advanced art by professional artists.  He was also a board member emeritus at the Putnam Arts Council.  His commitment to mentor both art students and fellow artists in expanding their professional careers inspired the creation of this grant.

The application deadline is June 19, 2015

At the discretion of the Putnam Arts Council, the selected artist may be invited to show work in our gallery, the A. Eric Arctander Gallery at the Belle Levine Art Center in Mahopac
