The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County is providing opportunities for artists to earn income selling their work and applying for grants.
The Arts Council is accepting applications now through Sept. 12 for the Regional Artist Project Grant. These funds provide financial support to performing, literary and film artists working to complete projects that will help further their artistic aspirations.
Qualifying projects must begin no earlier than Jan. 1, 2014 and conclude Dec. 31, 2014. Grant writing workshops will be held to assist interested artists.
The arts council is also accepting applications from arts and craft vendors interested in competing for a $1,000 prize and selling their wares during the 35th annual International Folk Festival Sept. 28-29.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 5.
Artists who quilt, stitch, embroider, create original jewelry, potter, woodcrafts, glass art, stained glass, draw or paint can sell their work in time for the holiday season during Fayetteville’s 14th annual Dickens Holiday on Nov. 29. This holiday event draws more than 10,000 people each year.
