CALL FOR ARTISTS! Submit your work to participate in W.A.A.S. Gallery's FIRST EVER group show!
CALL FOR ART:
WAAS Gallery invites artists to submit works of art to be considered for our first juried group show opening on Friday, November 16, 2012 and closing Saturday, December 15, 2012. We seek works of any medium that respond to, or engage the WAAS mission statement below. A group of artists will be selected for exhibition, and from those selected participants, one artist will be awarded a cash prize of $500. WAAS Gallery is a fast-rising space that enchants enthusiasts and collectors. We are looking for local and not-so-local artists to let shine. A $20 submission fee will apply to all applicants. A floor plan is available below. For more gallery details and images visit the website.
Located between Deep Ellum and Fair Park neighborhoods, WAAS Gallery is a unique and exuberant new voice within the Dallas art community. Our commitment to artists and collectors is to create hybrid exhibition-gallery environments and, therefore, showcase exciting, relevant, and innovative work. We exhibit and represent significant artists hailing from local and international markets and give artists free creative reign to most effectively display their work, and also provide collectors the rare opportunity to view the art in an artist-driven context.
Believing that Art truly is a catalyst for social well-being, personal growth, and all aspects of positive change, WAAS also strives to function as a local incubator, promoting progressive evolution for the individual as well as the community by hosting collaborative neighborhood events with different creative, educational, and holistic entities.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES and PROCESS:
Electronic submissions are due on Sunday, September 9, 2012.
IMAGES & FEE:
Electronic submissions of three to five images, and an artist bio/cv, and statement should be sent to email@example.com. Larger files will be accepted via post (postmarked by Saturday, September 8, 2012 and sent to WAAS Gallery ATTN: Brandy Adams 2722 Logan Street Dallas, TX 75215). Mailed materials will not be returned. Please do not send images via third-party websites like yousentit, or droxbox. Click here to pay $20 one time, nonrefundable, entrance fee, or log on to the website submissions page.
The selection process entails an initial round of studio visits, and an exhibition list will be constructed from those artists. All artists asked to participate in the exhibition will be eligible to win the WAAS Gallery Juried Exhibition Prize. Selected artists will be contacted within one week of their submission to schedule a studio visit, and will be notified by Thursday, October 11 of their participation status. WAAS will ask that work be delivered to the gallery on Friday, November 2.
Keeping with our mission, all work will be offered for purchase, and WAAS will charge a standard fifty percent commission. All artists are required to produce a COA, or sign a bill of sale. All objects will remain on exhibition until the closing date, Saturday, December 15, 2012.
JURY AND PRIZE:
A $500 prize will be awarded to one artist. While the artists to be included in the exhibition will be selected by the curator, a panel of judges consisting of significant local arts professionals, alongside WAAS Gallery owner, Brandy Adams, will determine the prize-winner.
