Chicago visual artists are invited to submit their work to a competition sponsored by Gapers Block and the Rockford-based arts purveyor Wall Blank.
The four winning artists will be featured on Gapers Block, and their work will be offered as prints for sale on Wall Blank during "Chicago Week" in August 2009.
Works in any visual medium or dimension will be accepted. The only criteria are that the work be by Chicago-area artists and their finished work be available at the minimum dimensions of 8"x12" at 300dpi.
Proceeds from sales are contingent on print price and number of sales and will consequently be discussed with winning entrants after selection. No cost will be borne by the artists.
Submissions should be emailed to SubmitArt@gapersblock.com with the subject "Chicago Week Entry" by July 31, 2009 with the following elements:
* One jpg of the work that is 1000 pixels wide on its longest dimension
* Title (if applicable)
* Email address
* Website (if applicable)
* Phone number
* A statement about the piece
The statement is open ended. It can be anything from a traditional statement to a fiction narrative to a description of your process.
Artists may submit up to three pieces for consideration.
Questions about the competition should be emailed to David Schalliol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
