Exhibition Opportunity for Art Instructors
Art instructors are critical members of thriving creative communities. They are responsible for passing core principles of art appreciation and a wide range of art production techniques to each new generation, often supporting both artists and non-artist viewers. Many art instructors are also practicing artists, balancing their own studio practice with the goal of helping others.
Crosstown Arts would like to invite you to share your personal work and experience with a broad audience through the following events.
Friday, February 26 & Saturday, February 27, 2016 (gallery hours: noon-6 pm)
Opening Reception: Friday, February 26, 6-9 pm
This exhibition opportunity is open to all self-defined art instructors in any capacity residing in the greater Memphis Area. This is a non-juried showcase. Each artist/instructor may submit up to three pieces (minimum one will show) in any genre. All artwork should be ready to hang or install. Works larger than 4’x4′ (2D), 1’x1’x2′ (3D) and alternative genres or installations are subject to approval based on space limitations. Work can be listed for sale and Crosstown Arts does not take a commission.
Please submit information and images through this online form by Friday, February 19th.
If you have questions, please contact Brittney Bullock email@example.com
