Smithtown Township Arts Council: Little Black Book

Deadline: May 8, 2009 (RECEIVE)

Little Black Book
Smithtown Township Arts Council

James, NY
June 6-July 1, 2009

For many artists, drawings are an integral part of their creative journey…an exploration of the visual world and their response to it. Artists build their work through inspiration, references, sketches, models, underpaintings and other modes of planning.

An artist’s Little Black Book is often a secret stash of intimate expressions, innermost thoughts, and experimental techniques that lay the groundwork for their final piece.

The Exhibition seeks to show the thought processes involved in art making through the evolution of the work. Submit sketchbooks, photos, models or other examples of preliminary plans, along with final piece of art these plans evolved from. Both the final works and preliminary plans will be exhibited.

Open to all artists and all visual media. Work may not exceed 54 inches in width. Sculptures weighing over 50 lbs. must be delivered and installed by the artist.

$35 for up to 3 entries
$20 for STAC artist members **Artists may become STAC artist level members at time of entry.

Entry deadline is May 8, 2009, and must be submitted as 300 ppi jpeg files on CD only.
