Applications for the Get Artistic 2020 DIY Fund are open until August 30! You may be thinking…didn’t the Get Artistic grant applications just close? Well, yes! While our Get Artistic grant program focuses on individual artists and arts nonprofits, the DIY Fund is an opportunity specifically for independent artist- or collective-led projects or events in the Athens community.
Think of it this way: while Get Artistic grants help artists deepen their individual art practice—by investing in their time, tools and materials, or professional development—the DIY Fund helps artists go beyond their individual practice through projects or events that are more collaborative in nature.
WHAT TO KNOW:
tinyATH Gallery—a small but mighty exhibition space tucked into a neighborhood creative complex—showcases a different local artist each month. This summer, the gallery has hosted solo shows by Broderick Flanigan, Lisa Freeman, and Will Eskridge, providing exhibition space and promotional assistance in a time when it’s more challenging than ever to connect with art-loving audiences. tinyATH owner Camille Hayes wears the many DIY hats of curator, art preparator, and gallery attendant— on top of managing her own painting practice, freelance graphic design business, and work as a public relations professional! It’s folks like Camille who leverage their time and talents to elevate others that make Athens a truly special place to be. tinyATH’s next socially distanced gallery opening will be on August 14 featuring art by James Burns. You can also email the gallery to schedule a private viewing appointment. Check out tinyATH on Instagram or Facebook!
