Call for Art: WARM’s “Fall Transformation… Looking Inward” Exhibit

Date:
October 1st – November 30th, 2015

Location:
Bethesda Hospital’s Gallery Cafe
559 N. Capital Blvd.
St. Paul, MN

WARM members are invited to exhibit at the Gallery Cafe at Saint Paul’s Bethesda Hospital – a long-term acute care hospital that offers integrated programs for patients whose illnesses or injuries have long-term effects.We are looking for works that portray the theme of “Fall Transformation… Looking Inward“.

Special Opportunity! Extend this invitation to a non-member friend!

Each WARM artist in the Fall Transformation show may invite one non-member friend to show with them! Just forward this email to a friend(s); invite them to show with you; and to mention your name when they contact Allie Hafez (below).

The Gallery Cafe is a high traffic space where your art will be appreciated by hospital workers, visitors and patients. Bethesda also has an art purchase program, and they often purchase pieces from shows to add to their art library. This library gives patients the opportunity to choose art for the rooms as part of their healing journey at the hospital.

For this reason, work needs to be appropriate for a healing, therapeutic setting; please no work depicting violence or other difficult to view subject matter.

Each artist can submit up to two pieces in their original submission. Following the first round of submissions, you may be asked to bring additional pieces as space allows. Wall pieces must be four feet or less in height, and ready to hang from a hanging system. Three dimensional work can be displayed in covered pedestals ranging in size from 12″x12″x12″ to 30″x30″x24″.

Email your submission to Allie Hafez at otiwa@usa.com. Let her know:

  • The size of the pieces you plan to exhibit
  • Images of work are appreciated but not required. (Images sent may be used in publicity).

There is no entry fee for this show. The deadline to respond is September 16th. The call will close when 20 (twenty) 2D artists /8 (eight) 3D artists are confirmed.

Drop-off Day will be September 29th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Bethesda. If you can’t make it at this time you may bring art to Layl McDill’s studio at 34 Thirteenth Ave. NE, Suite 109. (Contact Layl at layl@claysquared.com to set up a drop-off time).

If you are sending work with another artist (or delivering to Layl), be sure they have the following details about your work:

  • title(s)
  • medium
  • price of work (or “not for sale”)

We look forward to seeing your work, and new work from your friends!

Thank You!
