Deadline May 12th: The SUMMER SHOW Project

Deadline: Monday, May 12, 2013

Apply by April 28th for a reduced submission fee of $25, after April 28th the fee is $35.

“The Summer Show Project offers the unique chance for artists to work directly with FOLEYgallery.  The exhibition will feature one artist that works with photography and one artist that makes works on paper. The Summer Show Project is open to all artists world wide.

This is the fourth year for The Summer Show Project. We invite you to submit your work to participate in this unique opportunity and share the experience of exposure, guidance, feedback, community, recognition and support. This initiative will provide an opportunity for emerging or under represented artists to have their work seen, recognized and reviewed in a professional gallery setting.

Upon acceptance, you will work on your own and with the guidance of gallery owner Michael Foley to create a well curated two person exhibition.

The Curators
Michael Foley, Director, FOLEYgallery; Thomas Allen, Artist; and Casey Ruble, Artist.  You can read about them here.

Application Requirements
The SUMMER SHOW project only accepts applications online.

We ask that you have 3 images you are ready to apply with.  Each must be no wider than 1000 pixels or no more than 700 pixels in height.  Resolution must be 72 dpi.  Our only suggestion is to choose three images that show some consistency while staying true to the type of work you are most interested in.  At this point, the work will not be chosen based on theme or style.  Whether you consider yourself a journalist, a collage artist or whatever, it just doesn’t matter.

You will also be asked to submit a statement about your work in 100 words or less.  That’s right, 100 words.  A caption or title that summarizes the work would be a good way to start off.

Please do not contact the judges directly in any fashion.  This is a blind jury.  The curators will not be aware of the names attached to the entries during review.  At the conclusion of the selection process, all curators will then be given the names of the artists who submitted work so that they might follow up with them directly.

We do not recommend you try to fit your submission into what you might think the gallery is looking for.

So, submit what is true for you, regardless of who will be viewing it.”
