Are you a local artist in need of money?
If so, you may want to apply for State grant monies now being co-ordinated through the Gaston Arts Council, according to spokeswoman Lisa Gray. This week, Gray said that the application process is now open for North Carolina Arts Council grants to support the work of artists in Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Cabarrus and Cleveland counties.
Artists may request up to $2,000. The deadline to apply is Oct. 1, said Gray.
“Emerging or established artists are encouraged to apply to support a range of professional and artistic development,” she said, “including the creation of work, improvement of business operations or expanding capacity to bring work to new audiences. Artist fees are also allowable expenses. Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply.”
Gray continued that three Internet-based workshops would be broadcast on Zoom for prospective applicants. These workshops are scheduled for Aug. 13 at 5:30 p.m.; Aug. 21 at 10 a.m.; and Aug. 31 at 5:30 p.m.
To learn more and to RSVP, send your e-mail queries to the Gaston Arts Council at email@example.com. Or call Gray at the arts council at (704) 853-2787.
