Pride Center of Vermont is seeking LGBTQA artists to display their work at the Center during the South End Arts and Business Association’s 22nd Annual Art Hop.
More than 35,000 art lovers from across the state are expected to crowd into Burlington between September 5th and 7th to view art from across mediums and materials. Whether you are just starting out in your art or are an established artist, Pride Center of Vermont encourages your submission. We are particularly but not exclusively interested in LGBTQ activist art and art that explores gender and sexuality.
Last year was our first time participating in the Art Hop and it was amazingly successful. LGBTQA artists got fantastic exposure, some sold pieces, and everyone had a great time. Pride Center’s space is bright with large wall space and hanging rods. We also have community space in which to display 3D work.
Selected artists will be featured in our promotion for Art Hop, including announcements on social networking sites, Pride Center’s webpage, and in our e-newsletter distributed to over 1,500 subscribers.
Please enter your submission by August 11th. The committee will notify artists of our selection by August 20th.
Please submit 3 images with title, dimensions, medium, and price (if applicable), as well as a 200-word artist statement.
We ask that we receive your work by Tuesday the 2nd of September so that we can have it installed in time.
We will open the Pride Center’s space on Friday, September 5th at 5:00PM with a wine and cheese reception. Pride Center will remain open all day Saturday. We will be closed on Sunday.
Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
