Opportunities for Artists
Deadline: April 6, 2011
The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery is now seeking artists for the development of its Art Advisory.
The Art Advisory, a full service entity of the gallery, will assist private collectors, corporations, and healthcare facilities in transforming their home or office environments through the thoughtful integration of artwork to create spaces that enhance creativity, promote tranquility, and offer inspiration. From their news release:
We currently seek works by painters, photographers, sculptors, printmakers, muralists, installation and new media artists to support our developing advisory services and future projects. Chosen Advisory artists will work with the gallery to sell existing works or to create commissioned pieces specific to future clients' needs.
We accept two and three-dimensional works of art, including works on paper (edition of 500 or less) and Giclée prints (edition of 250 or less). Individual art works will not be selected from the call; rather, we will invite selected artists to be non-exclusively represented by the Advisory. After an initial review process a preliminary selection of artists will be asked to deliver/ship one work to the gallery, upon which the final decision will be based. Consequently, all artists, except installation & new media artists, should plan to be available to deliver or ship one work for either the week of July 4 or July 11, exact review dates TBD. Exceptions will be made on an individual basis. To be considered for the Art Advisory artists must complete the Call to Artists form and submit materials according to the set guidelines, postmarked by APRIL 6, 2011. For guidelines and Advisory Prospectus please see the gallery website: www.smithfarm.com/gallery.
