Calling Oakland Artists
Posted by novoscene on November 16, 2009
The Prescott-Joseph Center for Community Enhancement, a West Oakland non-profit is getting ready for its annual holiday art exhibit. For those of you that haven’t been to the center, it’s a two-story Victorian that was once used as a convent.
Tomye Neal-Madison, the center’s Visual Arts Coordinator, is curating the group show that will be titled Bay Area Artists Collection. While the location doesn’t encourage sculpture displays, the call to artists says the venue allows for every wholesome topic/technique of art that can be displayed on the building’s walls.
Please send photos – jpegs or slides — either to firstname.lastname@example.org or to 765 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland 94610. The images will be used for promotional material about the exhibit.
Instructions from Neal-Madison: Please make sure your artworks have a wire across the back. There is a suspension from the ceiling’s molding system in place. Holes in the walls will not be tolerated. Consider that among your viewers will be special guests, collectors, gallery owners and business people expecting professional works of art. There are two delivery dates, Thursday November 19, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. or Sunday, November 22, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be a reception on Saturday, December 12, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibit is scheduled from Monday, November 30 through Friday, January 22, 2010.
