OPPORTUNITIES:
GIRLS GOTTA RUN....TO THE FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS VILLAGE CENTER

Dear Artist,

“A Running Commentary,” a GGRF art exhibit, will be held at the
[Friendship Heights Village Center](http://www.friendshipheightsmd.gov/)
in Chevy Chase, Maryland, in October 2009. You can see photos of the
Center, both inside and out, on various pages on their website. The Center
can accommodate a lot of work, approximately 50 2D pieces, including quite
large ones, both in the long gallery hall and in the very large community
center room, where the reception will be held. The exhibit will be
announced in the Center’s
[Newsletter](http://www.friendshipheightsmd.gov/PDFs/June09NwslttrFINAL.pdf)
that comes out the first of every month, as well as the October issue of
the “Galleries” guide. As you will also note from perusing the
Center’s website, newsletter, and calendar, the Center has a lot of
activity and the art exhibited there has a sophisticated and quite
well-to-do audience.

We invite you to submit up to three works of art that represent the
mission of GGRF in some way, such as girls, running, shoes, Ethiopia. 2D
work may be representational or abstract, in any media, and up to 30” by
30.” We can also accommodate small sculptures. There are two glass
display cases, approximately 23" high, 8" deep, 40" wide, as well as about
a dozen sculpture stands.

Jpeg images of work you would like to have considered, along with your
name, the title of each work, the size and medium, should be sent to me at
pat@girlsgottarun.org by **September 1**, 2009. If you already have work
in our online gallery you would like us to consider, please let me know.
(We will also be hanging some of the art that has been donated to GGRF).
Artists will be notified of acceptance of their work by **September 14,**
2009. The selected work, along with the GGRF entry form/exhibition
agreement, which will be forwarded to you upon notification of acceptance,
should be brought to Beth Cartland’s house, 3705 Morrison Street, NW,
WDC 20015, between 1 and 3 pm on **Sunday, October 4**, ready to be hung
and marked with title, price, medium, and name of artist. Framing should
be done in a professional manner. The exhibit will be hung on October 5
and artists agree that work will remain in place for the duration of the
exhibit. An artist’s reception will be **Sunday, October 11, from 11:30
am – 1:30 p.m**. Art that is not sold should be picked up from the
Center on Sunday, November 1, between 10:00 am – 11:30 am.

The Center keeps a 20% commission on any works sold during the exhibit or
the month after. For this exhibit, GGRF will be asking a $10.00 exhibition
fee per accepted piece, but only 10% of the sales price on any work sold.
Of course we will gratefully accept any additional donation any artists
may wish to make. The fee should be paid at the time of delivery of the
artwork or earlier.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Also, please feel free to
let others know of this opportunity. Happy creating! And thank you so
much.

Sincerely,

Pat
