LibertyTown Arts Workshop announces a call for artists for The Art of Quarantine. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Times of quarantine and lock down can be times of despair and isolation, but they can provide the mind and body space and time to create art in ways we never could before. LibertyTown Arts Workshop decided to do this show to capture a snap shot of all of the work created by artists shut away at home. New artists welcome. All mediums including song, speech, poem, and video are welcome.
Deadline: 24 Aug 2020
All artists age 16 and older working in any media may apply. Literary works must be 1 page or shorter. Visual artwork should be no larger than 24”x24” in any direction. Visual artwork accepted into the show must be for sale. Work that will be displayed on a wall must be ready to hang, with no wet media, no saw tooth hangers, and staple-free edges. LibertyTown will provide pedestals when needed. LibertyTown reserves the right to reject works due to content, space constraints, or inability to properly install the work.
Fees: $15 First piece (everyone gets the member’s price for this show), $5 for each additional piece.
Commission: LibertyTown keeps a commission of 30% on all show sales. Artists are responsible for any costs related to transporting accepted work to the gallery and transporting unsold work away at the end of the show.
