This Saturday in DC

While we hold our breath for the photographic orgy coming to DC in Fotoweek, you can get a good vision of what the medium can deliver as Heather Goss' Ten Miles Square opens their second show with Looking Sideways by Cesar Lujan at Big Bear Cafe. Saturday, opening reception 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Opportunity for artists

New deadline: Saturday, November 15, 2008

Details The Arlington Arts Center has extended the deadline for their "Unlimited Edition" juried show. This "is a juried show about the relationship of the art world to reproduction and marketing. They are looking for artists who produce lots of unnumbered multiples of an image or an object...or who incorporate mass-produced products into their work...or who simply explore the commodification and mass-reproduction of art through various means."

Eligibility: Artists living or working in Virginia, DC, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania may submit up to 5 jpegs, along with a statement-max length: 300 words-explaining what they propose to exhibit, and how it addresses the show's theme. Existing works must have been completed after 2005. Proposals for new work that take into account the AAC's exhibition spaces are encouraged.

Details here.
