This is the third year for The Summer Show Project. I usually avoid posting Calls for Artists that involve a fee, but decided this one could be worth the fee for the right artists. The fee could even be a great bargain if you know you are ready for this opportunity. This opportunity gives emerging or under represented artists an opportunity to have their work seen, recognized and reviewed in a professional gallery setting.
The Michael Foley Gallery states that they ”… do not recommend you try to fit your submission into what you might think the gallery is looking for. So, submit what is true for you, regardless of who will be viewing it.”
They will be using a blind jury process. The curators will not be aware of the names attached to the entries during review. At the conclusion of the selection process, all curators will then be given the names of the artists who submitted work so that they might follow-up with them directly.
The Summer Show Project New York
Deadline for submission is May 6, 2012.
The cost of submission is $30 by April 22 and $40 by May 6.
The Summer Show Project offers the unique chance for artists to work directly with the FOLEY Gallery. They are looking for two artists for this exhibition– one artist that works with photography and one artist that makes works on paper. Upon acceptance, the two artists selected will work on your own and with the guidance of gallery owner Michael Foley to create a well curated two person exhibition.
All artists world-wide and from all disciplines who work in photography and works on paper are invited to apply.
Deadline for submission is May 6, 2012. The cost of submission is $30 by April 22 and $40 by May 6.
To apply send 3 jpeg images no wider than 1000 pixels or no more than 700 pixels in height. Resolution must be 72 dpi. Choose three images that show some consistency while staying true to the type of work you are most interested in doing. The work will not be chosen based on theme or style–it doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a journalist, a collage artist or whatever–it’s all about the art.
Submit a statement about your work in 100 words or less. That’s right, 100 words. A caption or title that summarizes the work would be a good way to start.
