Call For Artists: EARTH Day

March 30, 2018 - 11:59pm

Call for Artists: EARTH Party
Open through Friday, March 30, 2018
Exhibition on view at CCBC April 15, 2018

Since April 2015, in honor of Earth Month—which encompasses Earth Day on 4/22—Creature Comforts has hosted events and art exhibitions to celebrate our planet. This year, we’re doing something a little different. In partnership with UGA’s Office of Sustainability, Creature Comforts is proud to present EARTH Party on Sunday, April 15, 2018 (1:00 – 6:00pm). The event will incorporate a one-day-only pop-up show of artwork celebrating our incredible planet at Creature Comforts’ downtown taproom. This pop-up show will be curated by the Office of Sustainability’s current Artist-in-Residence, Kira Hegeman, and Madeline Bates, Creature Comforts’ in-house curator.

Submission guidelines:

  • Only artwork promoting world peace, respect for the planet, and environmental sustainability will be considered
  • Accepted visual art mediums: drawing, painting, prints, photography, sculpture, textile, mixed media, etc.
  • The accepted artwork will be displayed outdoors under a tent (either hung on a temporary display or on a designated table, if the work is sculptural)

To be eligible to apply:

  • You must have the availability and transportation to get your artwork to Creature Comforts’ downtown taproom between Wednesday, April 11 and Friday, April 13, with no exceptions. Artists must also take their work home with them by Monday, April 16.
  • Your artwork must be ready to display: mounted in a frame or a comparable device with wire strung across the back. If your work is a sculpture, it must have the stability to rest on a designated table without additional support. Artwork that is not in ready-to-display condition will not be accepted.

If you are eligible and interested in participating, click here to apply by the end of the day, Friday, March 30, 2018. Late entries will not be accepted. Notices will be sent out by Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
