Opportunity: Call for Artists, Midwives Collective
Call for Artists for PENDULUM
CAll FOR ARTISTS:
Show runs from March 11, 2011 - April 9, 2011
Opening Reception on Friday, March 11, 2011
A pendulum is more than a physical object in continual motion propelled by equal force to swing back and forth from a fixed point. It's a consciousness, a state of mind that now more than ever describes the atmosphere of the United States. We as Americans are continually oscillating between fear and bravery, candor and deception, discrimination and embrace. We're fluctuating outside of our comfort zone. The Midwives Collective and Gallery invites you to participate in the unique and timely show "Pendulum." Whether it applies to political agendas, the global economy and environment, or to our personal modus operandi, the pendulum guides us to explore how and why the ground shifts beneath our feet.
Art work for this exhibit can be in any form. Please drop off a CD containing the image of your work, the size specifications and contact information (phone number and email.) All mediums accepted.
Submission drop-off dates are Tuesday, February 15th from 7-9pm and Saturday, February 19th from Noon - 4pm both at the Midwives Collective and Gallery: 1241 Carpenter Street, Suite 2, 2nd Floor.
If accepted, the submission fee will be $10/piece. We will be notified you via email by Monday, February 21st.
Final artwork drop-off date with the $10/piece fee is Saturday, March 5th from Noon - 4pm. If you have a conflict, please contact us @ firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate a time.
Opening night for the exhibit is Friday, March 11, 2011 and the show will run until April 9, 2011.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com or check our website midwivescollective.com

The Midwives Collective & Gallery is a women's collective formed for the purpose of fostering community art making, culture, and the creation of art history by maintaining a public arena for the display and practice of innovative emerging art. In addition to sometimes showing our own works, we orchestrate open-call shows to provide support and exposure for emerging artists and encourage innovation, risk, and exploration in the arts. The audience at large is invited to share an artistic experience in an intimate, non-traditional gallery space.
