CERF+ the Artists Safety Net Offers COVID-19 Relief Grant Program for Artists – First Round Deadline July 29, 2020

June 29, 2020

CERF+ the Artists Safety Net is pleased to announce the launch of a COVID-19 Relief Grant program to provide financial assistance to artists working in craft disciplines who are facing dire circumstances from the COVID-19 crisis.

As part of CERF+’s broader COVID-19 crisis response strategies, this special program will provide one-time $1,000 grants to meet urgent food, housing, and/or health insecurities. The grants will be awarded in two cycles: the deadline for the first round will be July 29, and the second will be September 9. Priority will be given to eligible artists who have traditionally been underserved by the grantmaking community including people of color and folk and traditional artists.

“CERF+ recognizes that artists, who are so vital to the health of our communities, have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic with the sudden loss of income because of canceled shows, residencies, exhibitions, teaching opportunities, and other income-generating activities,” notes CERF+ Executive Director, Cornelia Carey. “We acknowledge that this is a small program relative to the significant need, and we look forward to rolling out additional programs to assist with recovery.”

Cycle 1: Accepting applications July 8 – 29, 2020
Cycle 2: Accepting applications Aug. 19 – Sept. 9, 2020

Her work on our cover sends a message of hope in the face of multiple disasters our county is facing at the present time. Together we will get thought this time in our country’s history.

The May 2020 issue of “Carolina Arts” is up on our website at (http://www.carolinaarts.com/520/520carolinaarts.html) – all 48 pages of it. That’s 2 pages less than last month’s issue – still Pandemic!

I was hoping that some artist would offer an image of the brave health care workers, but it didn’t appear, but we got something just as good – an image by Corrie McCallum, the other half of the Halsey/McCallum team. They were Charleston’s dynamic artistic duo. They both received the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award, SC’s highest award in the arts. I was lucky to get to know them both and enjoy their experiences of the visual art community in Charleston and South Carolina.

The April 2020 issue of “Carolina Arts” is up on our website at (http://www.carolinaarts.com/420/420carolinaarts.html) – all 50 pages of it. That’s 16 pages less than last month’s issue – Pandemic!

Don’t look too close, but featured on our cover this month is the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus). So beautiful, yet so deadly. As a child when my family would travel to the northern part of the lower part of Michigan to go camping during the Summer, I can remember staring into the evening campfire thinking how wonderful it looked. Mother Nature is like that – making the most beautiful things sometimes the most dangerous.

Covid-19 Update from “Carolina Arts”

March 15, 2020

People are still sending Call for Entry notices to “Carolina Arts” and we will continue to post them, but you should be a wear by now that many of these events and exhibitions may never take place this year. I’m getting e-mails on a daily basis telling me a gallery or art museum is going to stay open, although they are cancelling events where people would gather for lectures, receptions or other related events. Within a few days I’m getting follow-up e-mails telling me they are now closing, due to health concerns for staff and the public. This has been a mess from the start and I expect for it to continue to be a growing mess into the future. All I can advise is to keep in close contact with anyone who says they are still going forward as things can change fast. Stay safe and healthy out there.
