3 New Calls for Artists To Submit

Drift Station is an art gallery in Lincoln, Nebraska (USA). Last year I exhibited some of my art cards there and watched the well attended opening via live webcam hook-up. They do some interesting things. Drift Station is calling for artist books, zines, comics, small presses, and other non-traditional publications. For the duration of the exhibition, Drift Station will become a bookstore/reading library where the public can look through, peruse, and purchase artworks.  Everything submitted will be shown!

Hi Marie

I work with Art for Change, a non-profit gallery in east harlem. We have an open call for artists for our next exhibit, “Know Gays Aloud: Violence in LGBT Communities of Color.” I have pasted and attached the call for artists below. Could you post it on your website, artist marketing salon?
Thank you!

Know Gays Aloud: Violence in LGBT Communities of Color
Art for Change (AfC) is seeking proposals for artworks for its upcoming exhibition, Know Gays Aloud: Violence in the LGBT Communities of Color. Art for Change is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides a forum for creating innovative art and media programs that inspire people to take an active role in social justice. By merging art and community, AfC provides a space to explore social issues and celebrate the richness of cultural diversity.
The LGBT community has struggled to ensure equality of their civil liberties for over three decades. Though there has been significant progress in obtaining equal rights in the United States, such as the recent vote that passed a marriage equality law in states like New York, violence still persists against the LGBT community especially in minority populations. The increase in hostility towards the LGBT community in the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Africa has led to a rise in murders and teen suicides, notably for the transgendered. In Puerto Rico, even though murders of transgendered are becoming more frequent, the government is seeking to take these crimes off of the list of hate crimes, further justifying these acts of violence. This exhibition aims to expose the violence and prejudice that LGBT communities of color have endured through systematic cultural and religious persecution. Art for Change seeks work that reacts to this injustice.
interested artists may submit proposals for artworks consistent with the social justice platform of AfC, which address topics suggested, but not limited to, the description above. Artworks may include painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture, performance art, interactive art, design, architecture, and site-specific installation. Proposals must include an Artist Statement describing in detail the proposed artwork and its relevance to the exhibition theme. Please state if this is a finished work, or a proposed new work. Artists are encouraged to do further reading on the topic to inspire poignant ideas.
Artist Contact Info: Name, Address, Phone, Email Address, Website Address
Proposed Artwork Info: Title, Date, Material, Size (Height x Width x Depth)
Artist Bio (1 paragraph)
Artist Statement (1-2 paragraphs)
2-5 images of past-related work or actual finished proposal: 300 dpi or lower, no larger than 2MB each (please specify which work you are proposing for this exhibition or if it is a new work)
PLEASE EMAIL YOUR PROPOSAL WITH PROPOSAL, BIO, ARTIST STATEMENT, AND IMAGES ALL IN ONE EMAIL TO:  Please put “ART FOR CHANGE PROPOSAL in the subject heading. Artists will be notified the week of Monday, February 20th, 2012 if their proposal is accepted.
We are looking forward to reviewing your proposals!
