The creative sales and marketing director position requires an understanding and appreciation of art, combined with the business and marketing skills to manage our roster of artists, existing and new clientele and other team members while maintaining a profitable operation. The position, set to begin in January 2018, will require a wide-ranging knowledge of art and market trends to promote and execute planned and future exhibitions that will appeal to our collectors and attract new clients.

The Van Every/Smith Galleries at Davidson College have an open call for video works for a new large-scale video wall in the E. Craig Wall Jr Academic Center, a hub for transdisciplinary learning.
The video wall primarily shows the work of professional artists, but on particular days, visually engaging student and faculty projects are also screened. The space is also used for occasional presentations by guest lecturers.
Work by professional artists will be selected for presentation on the screen on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between January 2018 and December 2018. Artists will be given their own day/s during a particular month. Number of artists selected will be determined by applicant pool.
The Galleries are currently adding digital art works to the collection for rotation on the Video Wall. Works from this exhibition will be eligible for purchase, in part supported through the college’s crowdfunding platform, Give Campus. Artists may elect for their work to be part of a public voting process that includes students, faculty, students, and members of the community.
Video Submission Guidelines:
1. Artists may submit up to three entries.
2. Videos should not have an audio track or audio should not be a necessary component of the work. Due to the public nature of the space, sound will not be played.
3. Videos must be formatted for a 1920×1080 display, without letterboxing or any matte around edges.
4. The video wall is in a public space. Works with mature themes may not be accepted. Videos deemed high risk for triggering seizures or migraines will not be accepted.
Deadline: December 10, 2017, 11:59pm via this online submission form.
Corporate Art Collection Opportunity
An international and well recognized corporate art collection is seeking proposals for site-specific works for its North Carolina campus. The works will be displayed in and throughout the office space and will expand upon this multi-national corporation’s tradition of collecting and displaying art.
There are three spaces available for art installations. The works may be in any media, although two of the locations are especially well suited to sculptural, light, or video-based works.
This call is an exploratory search to assess the interest of North Carolina artists in working within an office environment, as well as their interest in engaging with both employees and the surrounding communities through site-specific works of art. We hope this will create a specific sense of place and identity within and around the office space and encourage dialogue between the artist, employees and the community.
Submissions are limited to NC artists.
The budget for this project is flexible, and will in part be determined by the strength, quality, and needs of work submitted.
The cost of development and production will be covered, along with an artist’s fee.
Please submit the following, electronically (material sent via regular mail will not be reviewed or returned) to email@example.com:
— Bio and CV
— Examples of past work (5-10 images)
— A brief description of how you would make use of the space (see attached examples)
— Any budget, engineering, or other concerns you feel are important
Deadline: January 1. All applications will be reviewed and responded to by February 1. Installation is planned for Fall of 2018.
