Jun 29 all-day

Betty Taylor Memorial Award

for Emerging Artists in Visual Arts and Crafts

Betty Taylor took her first art lesson at the tender age of eight, and her love of the Arts stayed with her throughout her life. Betty spent most of her career in Michigan where her work was handled by galleries. It was there that she personally experienced and understood the struggles, persistence, and need for assistance as an emerging artist.

After Betty’s death in 1990, her husband, Ross Taylor, established the Betty Taylor Memorial Fund with Community Foundation of Henderson County to promote and support emerging artists who have financial need and are studying in the field of visual arts and crafts. It is the Foundation’s pleasure to keep the memory and spirit of Betty Taylor alive with the award.

 

Purpose
To promote emerging artists who are in need of financial support and are studying in the field of visual arts and crafts.

The Betty Taylor Memorial Award is funded by Community Foundation of Henderson County, working in tandem with the Arts Council of Henderson County. Applicants for the Arts Council’s Artists Support Grant program will be eligible for consideration to receive the Betty Taylor Memorial Fund award.

Eligibility

  • Individual artists and small, unincorporated groups of collaborating artists
  • Applicants may be either emerging artists or established artists and should possess a strong record of artistic accomplishment appropriate to the stage of the applicant’s career
  • The applicant must reside or work in Henderson, Polk or Transylvania counties for a minimum of one year prior to April 2022.

  • Previous Taylor Award recipients are not eligible
  • Each member of a small unincorporated group of collaborating artists must meet the eligibility requirements and shall not circumvent these requirements by applying for what is really a collaborative effort.

Projects
The Betty Taylor Memorial Award is designed to award projects that will advance the applicant’s career as an emerging artist in the field of visual arts and crafts. The relationship of the project to the career advancement of the applicant must be clearly defined in the “Narrative” section of the application.

The second phase of Neighborhood Matching Grants will open for applications on June 20, bringing City investments into Asheville’s neighborhoods.

The Neighborhood Matching Grant program was created in 2021 with three main goals:

  • Build neighborhood capacity and increase civic participation;
  • Empower neighborhoods to self-determine improvement projects; and
  • Create and strengthen partnerships between the City and community groups

The first phase, launched in October 2021, funded projects in 14 neighborhoods that ranged from community garden education, to block parties, to sidewalk repairs and fence beautification.

Applications for this year’s program will be accepted from June 20 to July 29, 2022. Neighborhood organizations can apply for up to $5,000 in funds which they will then match through volunteer time, fundraising and in-kind donations.

“This program brings people together,” says Kristina Israel, Community Engagement Manager with the City’s Communication and Public Engagement Department. “We’ve seen residents collaborating to dream up, design and create projects that solve problems and make their neighborhoods more livable. I encourage anyone who is interested to find out more and talk to their neighbors about the program.”

Any project that is submitted must meet the following criteria:

  • Be achievable within 12 months on contract execution
  • Occur within Asheville’s city limits
  • Provide a public benefit and be accessible to all members of the community
  • Be planned, organized and implemented by community members
  • Must provide a dollar-for-dollar match (cash, volunteer hours, in-kind donation of goods or services)

Compost Demo Site Opens

Extension Master GardenerSM volunteers maintain a composting demonstration site at the Western NC Farmers Market, at the Jesse Israel & Sons Garden Center. After a two-year hiatus, due to Covid, the site is reinstituting public demonstrations, beginning April 9, 2022.

When to Visit?
The site is staffed and provides demonstrations from 10:00am to 1:00pm on the second Saturday each month, April through September.

What Will You See?
There are five different composting methods on display at the site. There is a single bin unit, a tumbling composter, a wood pallet bin and a classic 3-bin system — we also usually bring an example of vermiculture on each demo day.  The site is stocked with informational pamphlets on the how-to and why of composting and they complement the information available in the composting video on this website. Click here to view the video: Making and Using Compost at Home.

An additional Composting demonstration area is located at The Learning Garden at the Extension Office, 49 Mount Carmel Road, Asheville, NC 28806.  Click here for details about The Learning Garden.

GRANT: Betty Taylor Memorial Award for Emerging Artists in Visual Arts and Crafts
Jul 10 all-day
online

Betty Taylor Memorial Award

for Emerging Artists in Visual Arts and Crafts

Betty Taylor took her first art lesson at the tender age of eight, and her love of the Arts stayed with her throughout her life. Betty spent most of her career in Michigan where her work was handled by galleries. It was there that she personally experienced and understood the struggles, persistence, and need for assistance as an emerging artist.

After Betty’s death in 1990, her husband, Ross Taylor, established the Betty Taylor Memorial Fund with Community Foundation of Henderson County to promote and support emerging artists who have financial need and are studying in the field of visual arts and crafts. It is the Foundation’s pleasure to keep the memory and spirit of Betty Taylor alive with the award.
