OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS!
LOLZ! Instances of Humor in Art
Artists, we have a call for submissions!
Our objective is to celebrate and explore the relationship when comic meets creativity, and highlight the unique viewpoints of our local artists and how they choose to incorporate humor in visual art.
Whether it’s exuberant, smile-inducing slapstick comic strips or bold and snarky insults shouted by Shakespeare’s tragic heroes, there’s no question of the importance of the presence of comedy in art throughout the ages, reminding us of the absurdity of sanity and that if all else fails, laughter is the best medicine.
And we hereby cordially invite you to submit one of your works for our September show.
We accept a myriad of mediums for this giggle fest, from paintings to prints to photography, sketches, collage or written poems. The possibilities are sky high, as long as it’s tangible and we can hang it on the wall!
If you have any questions about our requirements or submitting to the show, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission Accepted on Sept. 9th, 2015 from 12-5pm
Community Art Show on display from Sept. 10-30th
Reception September 17 (4-7pm during CAW)
Majestic Theatre Community Art Shows Requirements
The Majestic Theatre is beginning a series of community art shows centered on various themes throughout the year. We invite local artists and members of the community to drop off one work of art to be hung in our South Lobby Gallery as part of our shows. There is no entry fee or jury process. Simply bring an original work that meets the requirements below and we will hang your piece.
Majestic Theatre Community Art Shows artwork requirements:
· Artwork must be 100% ready to hang or display. We do not frame artwork.
· Artwork must not exceed 24 inches in any direction or 15 pounds.
· Artwork must be dropped off and picked up during the designated times. We can not store artwork.
· Artwork must be accompanied by a completed submission form.
· Artwork must be relevant to the theme of the art show.
Due to our limited gallery space, we will only be able to accommodate between 15-20 pieces per show, so space in the show will be based on a first come basis.
