Call for Entries

The Ghost Town is seeking entries for our next exhibition “everything old is new again,” which will be in the Ida Green Gallery at Austin College March 26 – April 27, 2012. The calendar for submissions is below. 

 

everything old is new again

Artists mine the past for material: both figuratively through subject matter and literally through the use of old media, imagery and materials. We take these old ideas, motifs, and materials and we tear them apart, subvert them, dissect them.  Then, we rebuild, reimagine and reuse them for new purposes.  This cycle of renewal, of death and rebirth, of new leaves on old braches every spring, will be explored and celebrated in this exhibition. 

 

 

 

Work in all media will be considered for this exhibition.  In order to submit, email hrushing@austincollege.edu or ghosttownartstx@gmail.com.  In the email, include your name, phone number, email address and the following information for each piece: Title, dimensions, year, media, price, and a photo.  Please label each photo with your last name, first initial, and the title or partial title, separated by underscores.  For example: Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles D’avignon would be labeled “Picasso_P_Demoiselles”.  If more than one piece is untitled, please number your entries (e.g. Schmo_J_Untitled1, Schmo_J_Untitled2).

 

For your convenience, there is a fillable list at the bottom of this post that you can copy and paste into your submission email. 

 

 

Number of entries: Each person may submit up to four separate pieces. 

 

Entry Fee: There is an entry fee of $5 for this exhibition, payable upon delivery of accepted work.
