Opportunity: Making HerStory 6 The Era of Our Dreams
Call for Art:
“Making HerStory 6: the era of our dreams”
The ThickArt Collaborative, LLC, in conjunction with Authentic Contemporary Art and The Center for Green Urbanism (Washington, DC), seeks submissions for “Making HerStory 6: the era of our dreams.”
Making HerStory celebrates the vast and diverse forms of creativity offered by women artists. This year’s focus is found in a renewed energy among many of the artists in the Making HerStory family. HerStory 6 is about collaboration, growth, and sustainability. As 2011 marks the beginning of a new decade, we have coined this new season “the era of our dreams.” In the spirit of collaboration, TAC is proud to come together again with Authentic Contemporary Art in co-curating this exhibit.
We are seeking submissions of two-dimensional original artwork in any medium that embodies the artist’s reflection on the theme, “the era of our dreams.” All artwork must be no larger than 30″W x 30″H in size and must be properly wired and ready to hang. Unframed works should have neatly finished edges.
Exhibition dates are March 4 – 31, 2011. The Grand Opening Reception is scheduled for Friday, March 4, 2011, at the Center for Green Urbanism, Tubman-Mahan Gallery.
Interested participants shall submit an expression of interest of up to three (3) JPEGs (a resolution of at least 300 dpi prefered) of artwork you propose to include in Making HerStory to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expressions of interest must be received by February 11, 2011 to be considered. However, early entry is encouraged.
Artists selected to exhibit will be notified no later than February 16, 2011; however, notification may be provided on a rolling basis from the issuance of this call. There will be a $25 hanging fee for selected artists to reserve their place. Installation is scheduled for February 26 & 27, 2011. Instructions for delivery of work shall be included in notification.
Artwork is to be for sale at prices established by the artist. Artist will retain 70 percent of all sales.
