CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Signs at First Presbyterian Church, Marshall, MI
With the looming presidency of Donald Trump, I'm at it again. I cannot remain quiet. So, for one night only, I am planning a community event in the gallery/studio. Would you like to be part of it?
I will re-open Susan Hensel Gallery for one night:
Inauguration: Acts of Resistance, Acts of Kindness
Jan 20, 2017
Susan Hensel Gallery
An art exhibition with signmaking, button making, poetry reading, music and potluck in the "gallery" space.
I'm in contact with surrounding art businesses, poets and musicians to see if they want to join in an evening of revelry, turning Cedar Ave into the place to be on Inauguration night.
So, what do you think? Do you want to join me?
WHAT CAN YOU SHOW?
You are invited to show one or two pieces of art, wall art preferred, that speak to the current times.
IS THERE A JURY?
Most work will be shown. The only limitations are space in the gallery/studio and a requirement that work be non-violent in imagery.
ARE THERE FEES?
There are no fees of any kind. Donations toward materials gratefully accepted (I have a budget of @ $300 for the sign making and button making materials.) Sales are allowed, but not necessarily expected.
WHEN AND HOW SHALL I DELIVER?
Please deliver art ready to hang on Wednesday, Jan 18-19, 3pm-7pm, If you are sending work from far away, I encourage you to send free stuff/mail art, things that do not need to be returned. It is only one night, afterall. Otherwise, send prepaid return shipping labels.
HOW WILL THIS BE PROMOTED?
Robust social media, local and national press releases, Susan Hensel Gallery blog and website.
For promotional purposes, as soon as possible, send a large jpg (1920pixels on the long side) of representative work and any info that would help me write about you and your work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My goal is to begin to create pathways for positive resistance within our community. Art is my protest. It is what I do and have always done. Join me if you wish.
Thanks for considering this idea!
