The Visual Arts Sea Grant Program of Rhode Island was established in 1988 to encourage New England professional visual artists to address the issue of the environment of the ocean and its coastal communities. Grants are intended to financially assist individuals and/or collaborating artists whose works are related to themes of the marine environment. Curatorial proposals will be considered.
The grants, up to $3,000, will be awarded annually. Previous recipients of Sea Grant awards are not eligible for 5 years. Individuals enrolled as undergraduate or graduate students are not eligible. Proposals will be reviewed by a panel of RI professionals in the visual arts.
This year's application deadline is May 25, 2012.
Previous awardees include Kim Salerno and Janelle Iglesias 2008, Hannah Elise Miller, 2009, Timothy Murdock, Nathalie Miebach, and C.L Terry Gips, 2010.

On April 28th, Hera will hold its second annual postcard fundraiser! We are seeking 2,000 artists’ postcards created as original works of art to sell at $15 each for benefit of the gallery. Postcards will be displayed online prior to the fundraiser. A reception featuring music, food, and fun will be held on Saturday April 28th, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
Hera Gallery could use your help by asking you to create postcards for this event and recruit other artists to aid in this effort! You may contribute individual postcards or editions of postcards. They can be stamped and sent through the mail, put in an envelope, or delivered to the gallery. Postcards will be accepted on a rolling basis. The deadline for inclusion in the show is Saturday April 21. All cards become the property of Hera Gallery. Artists are asked to sign and date the back side of the postcard and to include any information they would like to make available: a message, contact information, websites, or an artists statement. The piece need not be a functional postcard. Anything goes as long as it is 4” X 6”. Have fun!
More information is available on the website: www.heragallery.org. Also see the Facebook event page. Contact Islay Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Mail cards to Hera Gallery, Box 336, 327 Main St, Wakefield, RI 02880.
