Call for Artwork – Group show July and August 2021 at Awbury Arboretum in Germantown, Philadelphia



While not a “white-box gallery” Awbury Arboretum’s beautiful Cope house has 2 1/2 ground-floor rooms that are frequently used to show artwork. The setting is beautiful and there is an outdoor tent for a reception. If you would like to see photos of the indoor space please contact me. The show will be hung “salon style” so that more art can be shown. Because no holes can be put in the walls the hanging will not be conventional. 

At this point there is no theme, but since the house is also a wedding venue, I am not allowed to accept artwork depicting nudity, obscenity, or overt politics. Work must be framed and ready for hanging. Drop off dates will be in mid to late June. (TBD) There is the possibility for shipping the work to my home. Please contact me for consideration of that. 

You may price your work for sale if you like. The Arboretum will take 20% of the sale price. (Feel free to donate more)

Important: There is no insurance, and you will need to sign an agreement. Because the Arboretum does not have a budget for hanging and reception, accepted artists will be asked for a $30 contribution. If you’re unable to contribute this can be waived.

If interested, send 3-5 images of 2-dimensional artwork (not exceeding 36 inches) indicating medium and dimensions, by March 30, 2021 to  for consideration. Also attach a CV.

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. 

This program has no deadlines. The program does not consider requests for dental work, chronic situations, capital improvements, or projects of any kind; nor can it consider situations resulting from general indebtedness or lack of employment.

The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

Applicants should be aware that this is a grant program, and that each application is considered on its merits within the criteria of the program. While we attempt to provide assistance to as many applicants as we can, the filing of an application is not, nor should it be perceived as, a guarantee of funding.

Eligibility: To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

Second-party requests are honored only when the applicant is physically unable to communicate with the Foundation. Review procedures for completed applications begin as soon as they are received. Full review generally takes about four weeks from the time an application is complete. Situations with imminent deadlines will receive priority.

Philadelphia, PA

My name is Genevieve Geer and I am opening a hybrid space that is a glass studio/ retail / gallery, and most importantly, houses four small 10x10 studios, that we are renting for $285. This covers rent, electric, ac and internet. Each studio is private, and secure. We created these spaces to fill a gap in the Philadelphia studio market. Most studios that are safe and warm or cool start at $600 plus utilities. We think these high rents are a trend in Philadelphia that is completely unsupportive to artists, and is driven by developers looking solely to make a buck. Happy to have artists in the neighborhood, but do nothing to sustain them. We think these small inexpensive spaces are a necessity for a healthy creative city, and we want to set an example! We are looking for a nice combination of artists for our first rentals- hopefully for December 1st. 


Utility Works Creative Community:

We are just getting started so there are several studio spaces available. Studios from $125/month and Hot Desks from $100/month. Visit  for more information or 610.745.4013 or email at to schedule a tour!
