Thought you guys might be interested in this call:

Recycled and Re-Purposed: Art from a Disposable Society

Deadline: September 29, 2010 5:00pm (RECEIVE) Or (EMAIL)

Recycled and Re-Purposed
Art from a Disposable Society
Ventura County Arts Council
Ventura, California
October 15 – November 30, 2010

Theme - How many of our discards reside in landfills instead of on the walls of an art gallery? This show highlights how creative artists can recycle or re-purpose materials into works of art or craft. The works may be purely works of art; or artful, practical crafts or tools. They may also be homage’s to tragic events such as fires, or celebrations such as weddings and anniversaries. The works can be of virtually any material, but most reflect inventiveness and creativity.

1. Artwork is consistent with Show Theme.
2. Original work produced in last two years and not previously exhibited in the Atrium Gallery.
3. The artist resides in Ventura, Santa Barbara, or Los Angeles Counties.
4. The work can be exhibited using the available spaces and mounting systems of the gallery, and is “prepared” to the standards listed herein (see “About the Atrium Gallery” below).
5. The work projects not more than 12” from the wall, and is no smaller than 12” x 12” or larger than 72” x 72”; OR be a freestanding work. Discuss exceptions to these standards with the Arts Council staff before submitting work.
6. The content of the work is appropriate for the work place in which the gallery is located.

All art must be clean and ready for display. It should be framed professionally. Submissions on stretched canvas can be submitted without framing if the edges are clean or painted as a continuation of the front image.

Sales of work must be coordinated through the VCAC office so pick-up can be arranged and a modest commission collected (15% of from members and 25% from non-members of the Arts Council).
