Call for Work: photo'11
Following is a link to the prospectus for the upcoming photo‘11 Exhibition. If you are not working with photography, or using photographic content within your work, please pass this information on to someone who may be interested.
photo‘11 is a National Juried Exhibition of work using photography or photographic content for its creation. The exhibition will run from January 17 through March 3 with an opening reception on Friday, January 17th.
This call for work can include everything from traditional to experimental imagery but all must be original. Each artist may submit up to 3 images for consideration. A $30 entry fee is required. The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago will present at least one Purchase Award, with the acquired piece being added to the school’s fine art collection. All imagery selected for the exhibition will be included in a printed exhibition catalog.
Submissions must be received by the end of day November 5, 2010.
The Important Part:
Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago is supportive of working artists as well as the community at large. With the intent of promoting individual artists and supporting charitable organizations, Gallery 180 will be donating their portion of the commission split to Heartland Alliance for their Human Rights effort. The exhibition will be highly publicized and multiple sales will be encouraged.
