Art Jewelry Forum (AJF) is calling for applications for the 2019 Susan Beech Mid-Career Grant. Established by San Francisco-based jewelry collector Susan Beech, the objective of this $20,000 grant is to recognize a mid-career artist who has made a substantial contribution to the field of art jewelry, and to provide the resources for the development and implementation of a significant jewelry-related project that the artist would not otherwise have the means to undertake.
The Susan Beech Mid-Career Grant is open to makers between the ages of 35 and 55 at the time of the proposal deadline. The proposed project should be about jewelry, loosely defined.
The jury for this grant cycle will be: Curator-in-Charge, Contemporary Art and Programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Claudia Schmuckli (United States); grant founder and collector Susan Beech (United States); and internationally recognized maker and academic Eija Mustonen (Finland).
The grant recipient will receive a cash grant of $20,000, to be paid over the two years in which the project will be implemented.
The deadline for applications is January 14, 2019.
