    CALL FOR ARTISTS

    Dear Friends,
    As you know, for many years the Delta Arts Center has been committed to showcasing the works of local and regional artists. In additional to our biannual juried invitational exhibitions we have promoted the work of other North Carolina artists in solo and small group shows. We are always looking out for new and innovative artists to show in our gallery.
    To that end, in 2016 we will open a small gallery space in our newly-renovated lobby. We are searching for artists who wish to create an installation in this space, or exhibit some new pieces. All exhibits during the 2016-17 year will focus on the theme of race, class, and power. We hope that you will consider submitting a proposal for this space, or sending this information to artists you know.
    Artists are invited to submit proposals by August 1, 2016. Up to five digital images and a written description of the project (300 words maximum) should be sent via email to deltafinearts@gmail.com (with attached jpeg or tif files). All proposals must clearly explain how they focus on the theme of race, class, and power. Please identify each work by name of artist, title of work, date, exact size, and medium, in the body of the message. An artist statement (of 200 words maximum) must also be included.
    Criteria:
    • All works must have been completed in the last three years and be for sale
    • All types of two-dimensional and three-dimensional media will be considered
    • All artwork must be installed by the artist
    Artists will be selected for five short (approximately two month) installations between September 2016 and June 2017. Your proposal, if selected, must include work that is for sale; a 30% commission on each sale will benefit the Delta Arts Center. Accepted artists will be notified by August 15, 2016. Please contact us via email at deltafinearts@gmail.com with any questions, or to submit a proposal which includes a description of the project (max. 300 words), artist statement (max. 200 words), and digital images of artwork (up to five pieces).  Again, the deadline is August 1, 2016. All images submitted may be used for publicity.
    Sincerely,
     Nadiyah Quander, Executive Director
