EXTENDED CALL FOR ENTRIES



The Art of Climate Change


“The Art of Climate Change” is an exhibition of art work exploring this planetary crisis—what it is, how it affects us. We want artists to look into themselves, as artists do about any serious work they undertake, and allow themselves to be aware of how they feel and/or think about climate change; to consult their inner sensitivities and think about what they discover. And then “tell” us about this world wide crisis and their feelings about it through their art.


Post Oil Solutions, in partnership with the Arts Council of Windham County, in Brattleboro, Vermont, is seeking artists to create paintings that explore climate change. Artists are asked to create a small sketch of your idea for a painting depicting your feelings about climate change. Along with this, please send 3 jpeg samples of your original artwork to show your style of creativity.


 Artists chosen to create a work for this exhibit will be given a lightweight wooden panel 32” x 38” as backing for their work and a stipend of $175.00. Stipends of $175.00 will be awarded when finished work is delivered to Post Oil Solutions. Once the stipend is paid, the original work will become the property of Post Oil Solutions.  Post-Oil Solutions will have reproduction rights to the work for the purposes of exhibit publicity and indefinitely for use in its work to fight Climate Change." However, if Post Oil were to sell or auction the paintings as a fund raising event, the artists would realize 40% of the sale; and whenever Post Oil exhibits the paintings, artists would be identified.


ELIGIBILITY

Two dimensional art works such as painting, collage, photography, printmaking, and

multi-media art are acceptable for the panels. Artists would be in charge of mounting, priming or adhering any work to the panels as well as adding wire for hanging on the back.


ENTRY RULES


There is no deadline for entries. Send no more than 3 digital images of your work and one digital image of a sketch of your proposed artwork along with your name, address, email & phone to Tim Stevenson, bereal@vermontel.net & Susan Rosano, suzydraw@aol.com.


ALL Digital Images must conform to the following guidelines-

RGB color, 72 PPI resolution, JPEG format.
