Seattle-Area Artists: Call for Art

Passing this along for those arty Seattleites who might read my blog:

Call for Art!

The Columbia City Gallery announces its 1st Annual Juried Exhibition

Plugged In and Caffeinated…

The Columbia City Gallery will present artwork that examines the perception of time as a “plugged in and caffeinated” culture. The exhibit will focus on the artist’s view of time; how industry, technology, and automation influences the need for more time, the phenomenon of time “flying by”, time in slow motion, or our cultures attempt to alter the reality of time.

This show will run May 10 – July 9, 2006, with a reception opening on Saturday, May 13th. The juried show is open to all artists 21 and older living in Western Washington. Entry fee is $30. A maximum of 3 slides may be submitted. Jurors for the exhibition are Barbara Shaiman from Seattle Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery; Kamla Kakaria, local printmaker and instructor at Pratt Fine Art Center; and Larry Calkins, local artist and instructor at Pratt Fine Art Center.

The Columbia City Gallery is located in the heart of the Historic Landmark District of Columbia City. The Gallery is a cooperative of local artists and is an arts program of South East Effective Development (SEED). Since its opening in 1999, it has been a lively center of community involvement.

Submissions must be received by Friday, March 24, 2006 by 8 pm. More information regarding detailed entry information and application is available online at www.columbiacitygallery.com. If you have any questions, please call 206/ 854-1727. Please pass this information to others who might be interested!

Let me know if you participate! Columbia City isn't exactly my neighborhood, but it's close enough that I'm down there all the time. I really like the way the neighborhood has shaped up in the few years since we bought our house... I can only hope my actual neighborhood follows suit eventually (I mean, a coffee bar would be nice!).
