I am gathering local artists for an Art After Dark show at the Tampa Museum of Art. The show is Friday, October 17th 2008 and will have a Halloween theme.
The Time is 8pm until 11pm.
Dressing up in a costume is highly recommended.
There will be a bar and a DJ so come ready to party.
There is no censorship of art but art must be themed correctly - Halloween, freaks, monsters, creepy. You get the idea. Art can be Paintings or crafts such as jewelry, sculptures etc... you can also sell prints of your works.
These are the rules:
1) Artists will be allowed to sell artwork and keep 100% of their proceeds. TMA does not get involved in any transaction.
2) Artists must provide completed works of art to the museum on October 16th before 5pm. They must be ready to hang either with wire or D-rings. Artists bringing table displays may set-up beginning at 5pm on October 17th.
Artists must provide label copy attached to each work. Copy should include Name, Nationality, Birthdate, Title of Artwork, Date of Completion, Material(s) of Artwork, Price
3) Artists will be given two complimentary entrance tickets - one for them and one for a guest. For everyone else the entry tickets will be $10.
4) TMA produces 5,000 4x6" full-color cards that are distributed in 8 South Tampa Starbucks locations, at the museum, and through the artists involved. We e-mail the information to over 3,000 members of the museum and press so there will be great exposure.
I have room for around 13 artists, maybe a couple more if you don't care that your art is displayed on an easel.
If you are an artist and are from the Tampa Bay area or know of anyone from the Tampa Bay area you can contact me via my email firstname.lastname@example.org. Use tag line "Interested in Art After Dark Show". You can send me links to your gallery or a few examples of your work. Let me also know the sizes of the pieces so I can calculate the space needed. I will let you know either way if you are in or not. Hurry, Hurry, Hurry and contact me because I'm sure the slots will fill up quick.
