Call to all Steampunk and Sci Fi Artists-
WarmStreets Gallery announces a juried show of Steampunk and Sci Fi works of art to be displayed at their Riverviews Gallery the month of April. Area artists are encouraged to submit up to three digital photos each of up to three works of Steampunk or Sci Fi art in any medium for consideration in this show, with cash prizes of $300, $200 and $100 for the top three works and a $100 “People’s Choice” prize, to be awarded at the end of the show following viewer voting.
WarmStreets is a local nonprofit that helps Lynchburg’s homeless through outreach and donations to groups such as The Daily Bread, Hand Up Lodge, and Miriam’s House. Funds are raised through art sales at their Gallery 205 at Riverviews on Jefferson St. where donated works are available for purchase. This featured show of juried works will hang April 6- May 3, with a “sneak preview” opening during First Fridays on April 5. WarmStreets will donate their percentage of each sale to help the homeless.
Area artists are invited to submit up to three digital photos each of up to three works of art to be considered, along with a $20 entry fee, either in person at the gallery or through the WarmStreets website at http://www.warmstreets.org. Submissions can include paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, jewelry, and mixed media- anything with a Steampunk or Sci Fi theme. Submissions must be received by 5pm on Monday, March 4, 2013. Accepted works will be notified by 5pm on March 11 and the works must be delivered to the gallery by 5pm on Friday, March 15. Contact Rick Hughes at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
