Call for Artists
November 11, 2007
Held at The Office Gallery and Art Studios in Orlando, Florida
Presented and organized by Claire Balgemann, Dawn Borglund, Katie McLemore
Alienation Art is a community-wide art exhibition held at The Office Gallery and Art Studios featuring visual, digital and performance art. The organizers of this exhibition are seeking to promote art and artists in the community while furthering the consideration and understanding of alienation on a personal, relational and global level.
Subject Matter: Physical or digital art including paintings, drawings, photographs, digital prints, sculpture, film, animation and hypertexts centered around the theme of Alienation. Art may be social, political, or personal in nature. Each artist may submit up to three pieces.
Deadline: Completed art must be submitted by November 5, 2007. E-mail AlienationArt@gmail.com to arrange art submission with Claire, Dawn or Katie. Art will be stored with the organizers until the close of the exhibition, not at The Office Gallery and Art Studios.
Accepted Work: Hanging pieces must be ready to display with standard eye hooks and wire. Sculptures must be accompanied with a pedestal if the piece requires one. For digital art, include in your application if you would like to submit digital art but can find no other way of obtaining the relevant technology to display it.
The organizers of this event are in charge of displaying and presenting all submitted art pieces in the space provided by The Office Gallery and Art Studios. Any work deemed by the organizers to be unsafe, not gallery ready, or outside the theme will not be displayed at the event. We will do our utmost to handle all artwork properly; however, the organizers of this event are not responsible for damaged work. Artists are responsible for insuring their own work. The organizers of this have the right to hold all submitted artwork from November 5, 2007 to November 12, 2007 and may display submitted artwork for the duration of the event. Artists will not be paid for the display of their artwork but artists may attach a price to their art in the book of artists if the price is submitted in the application.
