    Surveying the scope of critical art writing today, the board, advisory board, and editors of Gulf Coast recognize the significant lack of venues and support for young and mid-career writers working across the United States. The Toni Beauchamp Prize in Critical Art Writing seeks to address this lacuna by bringing exposure to writers who are dealing with the spirit of the age and unafraid to ask difficult questions.

    Grounded in both scholarship and journalism, critical art writing occupies a specific niche. The best examples appeal to a diverse readership through an accessible approach and maintain a unique voice and literary excellence. The Prize will consider submissions of work that has been written (or published) within the last year. A variety of creative approaches and formats to writing on the visual arts are encouraged, and can include thematic essays, exhibition reviews and scholarly essays.

    Gulf Coast differs from many other literary journals in its commitment to exploring visual art and critical art writing. The journal has always featured portfolios by visual artists, along with short introductions from critics familiar with their work. In 2013 Gulf Coast merged with the art journal Art Lies, a quarterly publication based in Texas with a respected history of putting artists, curators, scholars, and critics in dialogue with their colleagues around the world. This partnership has driven the journal to significantly expand its contemporary art coverage and reach. Currently, Gulf Coast features sixteen full-color pages of visual art features and twenty-four pages of critical art writing in each issue.

    There will be one first place prize of $3,000 and two runners up awarded $1,000 each. Prize winners will be featured in GC’s printed journal, as well as online.

    Deadline: September 1, 2017 

    Entries for the Toni Beauchamp Prize in Critical Art Writing should be a single piece of prose, written in English, not exceeding 1,500 words. We will accept submissions both via Submittable and via postal mail.

    Arkansas is the “Natural State,” and Petit Jean Mountain makes it easy to see why. From towering pines to open fields to sparkling lakes, Petit Jean offers stunning vistas at every turn. The Art in its Natural State competition is a regional competition for the creation of 10 temporary, outdoor artworks to be displayed among that natural beauty here at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute and Petit Jean State Park. Artists compete by submitting a design mock-up, build plan and artist statement created specifically for one of the sites below. The best fit for the competition will likely be structural, sculptural or landscape art, but all outdoor works will be considered and judged by a panel of representatives from the Arkansas Arts Center, Arkansas Arts Council, Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, University of Arkansas Fayetteville, University of Arkansas Fort Smith, University of Arkansas Little Rock and representatives from the Institute and the Park.

    Whatever work is conceptualized, we challenge the artists to work in harmony with the chosen sites, either through complementing the natural landscape of the mountain or highlighting the environment’s beauty with aesthetically pleasing contrasts. Both approaches will require careful thought and consideration for each of the unique worksites.

    The 360-degree photos (found on their website) and still images are captured from the center of each site to give an idea of the landscape in which the art will be featured. There is also a download link for each site with an image from the viewing audience’s perspective. This link will not only provide context for where the art will be placed, it is also the template over which we will ask the artists to provide a mock-up preview of their design to be judged.

    Full contest rules can be found here, and official entry to the contest is handled through CallforEntry.org after creating a free profile. There is a $25 entry fee for the first design submitted to the contest and a $5 entry fee for up to two additional designs. A coupon code is available in the official rules to discount the second and third entries.
