STOP COLLABORATE! call for artists

SHOW: "STOP! COLLABORATE!" - Curated by local artist, Todd Karam.


WHEN: AUGUST 2009! Opening Reception: Thursday August 13th, 6 - 9 PM during the West Seattle Art Walk.

WHAT: Yo VIP let's kick it. Stop what you're doing or what you're creating. I'm looking for a unique group of artists to participate in my first annual "Stop! Collaborate!" show. This is one-of-a-kind opportunity to collaborate with other members of the community. Of course there's a twist. Each participating artist will contribute one of their own pieces. After drawing names from a hat, another artist from the group will then take your piece and expand on it. Creative control is out of your hands and the torch has been passed on. You ask "..but, but will they respect the work I've done?" The answer is, "who knows". Maybe you have an old painting you wanted to bring new life to. Maybe you have a new piece you want completed by another set of hands. You're the artist! Just make sure the the piece you bring to the table is in fact your piece.

SALES: All sales will be split evenly between the two artists and the gallery will get their cut. Prices for each piece will be determined by the two artists and agreed on by the gallery. I want to keep the price of each piece under $250 (recession-friendly), so please consider small or medium sized pieces.

DETAILS: Artists will be required to attend one meeting at Twilight (TBD). Names will be drawn and artwork will be exchanged. Work will be due to Twilight by Saturday AUGUST 8th.

SUBMISSIONS: Please submit 1-3 images of the piece(s) you'd like to consider exchanging, to me via email:
