City Gallery “Call for Artists” 2012-2015, Deadline Extended to July 16 (Correction)

The Office of the Arts, in partnership with the Alexandria Commission for the Arts (ACA) is putting out a “Call for Artists” for area visual artists to submit their work for display in the City’s galleries. This is an amazing opportunity for area artists to gain exposure for themselves and their work. Individual artists, groups of artists, and organizations who live and work in the city of Alexandria are eligible.

Each exhibition will run for six months. There is no exhibition theme. All two-dimensional work will be accepted. All work must be original and no giclee reproductions will be admitted.  Please be sure that the work is finished and ready for display and hanging.

Interested parties can visit www.alexandriava.gov/arts for more information and application forms. In order to be considered, artists should submit a completed application form, a resume, a PC-compatible CD or DVD containing up to 12 images of your work, (numbered and titled) and no more than one page describing the work, the artist’s statement, and a description of the artist.

Entries will be accepted electronically and by US Mail. E-mailed entries are to be sent to aca@alexandriava.gov with “Call for Artists” in the subject line. Mailed entries are to be mailed to Office of the Arts, Attn: Call for Entries 2012-2015, 1605 Cameron St., Alexandria VA 22314

Deadline for submission has been extended to Monday, July 16, 2012 at 5 p.m. Finalists will be notified by e-mail by Monday, July 23, 2012.
