Ghouls, Witches and Children of the Night..
Join us for an evening of art inspired by all that is creepy and strange and help us support the Buffalo City Mission with our annual fundraiser and art show.
CALL FOR ART
For our celebration of the Halloween season we are looking for artwork that is creepy, peculiar, mystical and strange.
We are accepting artwork in 2 categories:
1. BIRCH COFFIN PANELS
Each artist is invited to showcase their original art on a coffin shaped birch panel. Subject matter is open to anything relating to the Fall Season or halloween in general. Panels can be primed and painted, sealed and drawn on with various mediums or used to mount exiting artwork to. Last year many artists painted directly on their panels, some mounted photographs to them and other sculpted directly off of the panel. Use your imagination - there are no limits. Panel size is 13” x 7”.
All panels will be displayed together and will be the main exhibit of our show.
Panels are free to all who participate and can be picked up at the studio during regular business hours - Tuesday through Saturday noon till 8 pm. Panels will be available after Friday Sept 14th. If you cannot pick up a panel(s) during those hours please text Jess at 716-228-1072 and other arrangements can be made.
(Studio address: RedHouse Tattoo & Piercing Studio, 4820 Broadway, Depew NY, 14043)
2. ALL THAT IS CREEPY
Don’t want to work on a coffin shaped panel? We are taking all other forms of art that relate to Halloween and season. All that is strange, creepy, goulish and spooky will be considered. Photography, mixed media, fiber arts, all paintings including oil, acrylic, ink, pastels and graphite are welcome. Art must be framed where applicable and ready to be hung. While we do not have a limitation on size, we have found that works of art over 60 inches and/or are heavy are hard to display in our studio.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 17TH.
Submissions can be dropped off Tuesday - Saturday noon till 8pm. If you cannot drop off your submission during those hours please text Jess at 716-228-1072 and other arrangements can be made. *Please note that the studio may be closed October 11-15th as we are taking a studio holiday. Please call ahead to confirm hours.*
Opening reception will be Saturday October 20th from 5-10pm. We hope that all artists and friends and family will join us in celebrating the evening.
Coffin Panels panels and all other artwork may remain on display though the rest of the month.
* For those of you who would like to sell your artwork at the show, in leu of a commission, we ask that the artist donate at least 15% of the proceeds to the Buffalo City Mission. *
