Ver(a)rt Gallery

Artists and Curators, this one's for you:

Ver(A)rt Gallery invites emerging and under-represented artists of all-ages to submit work for the 2010 season. Artworks in 2-D, 3-D, video and installation by emerging artists and crafters are welcome!

The gallery is located in the highly active Vera Project all-ages music venue, so get ready to be seen. Groups, individuals and curators are invited to apply with single works, themed shows or solo exhibits featuring a body of work.

Applicants are asked to send a cd of 3 - 10 images or videos (or a link to website/s) with an image list, a resume/cv or artist bio, and the completed application form.

For more information, visit Vera's Website.

Deadline: October 20, 2009

Ver(a)rt Gallery is a space for artists and curators of all-ages and practices to present their work and ideas. We are an arts laboratory, offering tools for creative experimentation and discovery to our diverse community.

Youth, emerging artists, local crafters, those experimenting in new genres of unsellable or underrepresented work, and collaborative projects are all encouraged. In order to facilitate these works, we offer opportunities to participate as an exhibiting artist, a show curator, an installer, a promoter, a submissions reviewer, or in any number of other capacities.

For those interested in taking on roles outside of their present skill range, we offer education and hands-on training, increasing arts knowledge in our community and potential for collaboration.

For these same reasons we seek collaboration with other local arts organizations and youth organizations with arts programming. We believe in the inherent value of arts participation and are here to be a means to that end.
