Here’s a good opportunity for artists: 3rd Ward’s open call for their spring solo show. Direct from their website:
This SOLO SHOW is open to artists working in sculpture, photography, painting, printmaking, motion graphics, illustration, installation, industrial design, graphic design, and/or film & video. If your work falls outside these categories, drop us a line – we’re pretty flexible. And if it falls between them, even better…
The Selected Artist will receive a $1000 cash grant provided by the kind folks at Pernod plus a 2-month residency at 3rd Ward with FULL access to studios and facilities along with an exhibition at 3rd Ward in June with a huge opening reception and city-wide press exposure.
All Submissions must be received by (pay-pal) / post-marked (snail-mail) February 1st, 2008
3rd Ward charges a reasonable $25.00 exhibition submission fee (though to be honest we typically frown on such fees), and their programming is generally strong. Admittedly I have some reservations about the last solo show linked on their submissions page based on the splash page image — the men with beards motorcycle event/eXtreme boy art — but I guess since I didn’t see that solo show, I don’t actually get to have an opinion.
