OPEN CALL TO NOLA ARTISTS
The Warehouse, Washington DC's downtown arts complex, is hosting an exhibition to benefit the New Orleans arts community and Habitat for Humanity Gulf Coast Recovery Efforts featuring work by NOLA artists and others. Opening on Mardi Gras day (February 28, 2006), the exhibit provides an opportunity for NOLA artists to share their diverse styles and unique viewpoints with a broad audience. The exhibition is being organized by Beth Baldwin of the Shakespeare Theatre in cooperation with Paul and Molly Ruppert at The Warehouse.
This serves as an open call for submissions to the Warehouse Gallery show in Washington DC, February 28, 2006. All New Orleans artists are invited and encouraged to participate. There is no entry fee and each artist is allowed multiple submissions.
Art must be delivered to Beth Baldwin at the address listed below by February 21, 2006. Shipping costs to Washington DC must be paid by individual artists.
Return delivery costs are being negotiated to offset costs for artists. Art must be ready to hang, framed or unframed. Special instructions for hanging pieces should be included w/each submission. Contact Beth regarding sculpture or any other 3D or installation piece and its requirements.
