John Fluevog Shoes Emerging Artist Grant

John Fluevog Shoes Emerging Artist Grant

This Deadline Expired: Monday, February 28, 2022

The John Fluevog Shoes Emerging Artist* Grant is intended to help emerging artists develop their skills and increase the visibility of their artwork. The winner will receive $10,000 towards their artistic work, a pair of Fluevogs and a heap of recognition within the best community of shoe fans ever!

As makers of unique soles for unique souls since 1970, John Fluevog Shoes has long been a friend to artists of the gifted and aspiring variety. Constantly inspired by the individuals of ‘Fluevogers’, both admiration and gratitude drive the makers to support the growth and development of such up-and-coming talent.

The Award is open to a variety of visual artistic media including but not limited to photography, textiles, painting, drawing, illustration, sculpture, mixed-media and others. Emerging artists who don’t have access to major funding are encouraged to apply.

Learn more and apply here.

* The grant’s definition of ‘Emerging Artist’ includes those who are early in their artistic careers (regardless of age) who are gaining momentum or in a stage when this support would be the most impactful. They have a record of having exhibitions and have completed their basic training or reached an equivalent talent in their practice outside of academia. These artists demonstrate potential in their practice and are not yet considered well established professionally by indicators such as major gallery representation, significant exhibition history, awards and commissions, or sustaining an income derived solely from art sales.

Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.
