Every year we host a special swap-like exhibition where all participating artists get a copy of every piece in the show, and this one takes the hilarious cake.
This one is a public call for artists, so please tell your friends!
We are looking for artists who want to have a bit of fun and find clever ways to hide *ahem* spicy words, imagery, or meaning in any number of collectible objects in subtle or not-so-subtle ways.
Artists will make 100 copies (could be pins, postcards, stickers, zines, patches, or anything else you can hide a little *wink wink* in.) and send them our way for the exhibition in Minneapolis, where they'll be on display & a full stack divvied out to each participating artist!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
We are looking for artists interested in creating a work featuring their favorite innuendo in the medium / style of their choice for the gallery exhibition and artists swap opening February 22nd in Minneapolis.
We will be featuring one copy of the works of art / items in our brick and mortar gallery in Minneapolis for the duration of the exhibition. 10-15 copies per batch (depending on the final number of participating artists) will be listed online for sale to the public, and the remainder will be divvied out to the creatives participating in the show so each artist receives the full collection of works!
The full collection of innuendo filled items will be shipped to the artists right after the exhibition opening reception via USPS priority mail (Medium Flat Rate Box for USA artists, and other accommodations will be made for international folks)
If you are an artist that would like to join us for the Innuendo exhibition, apply below with your name, email address, and a link to your work online! If you’re new to our calls for art, all you have to do is submit your links and we will be jurying and announcing the final list of participating artists via email and the LGAL blog after January 14th as well as following up with a big sign-in page with information on the gallery, pricing, shipping, and important dates and deadlines for everyone in the show!
** Please submit in the links in the comments — we get quite a few emails and so I’d hate for your entry to get lost in the shuffle!
QUICK DATES & DEADLINES:
JANUARY 12th : Put your name, email and links in the comments by the 12th!
JANUARY 14th : We’ll email all participating artists with a link to the artist info page (which has info on pricing, shipping, sending digital files, etc.) And announcing the list of creatives that will be joining us for the show!
