Call to cartoon and graphic artists: Bubble Rap II open to insane submissions through Sept 20
Boom. Pow. Scramble. Here comes the second installation of Bubble Rap, the exhibition of Northwest Louisiana artists’ cartoon and graphic work, says Bubble Rap creator Michael G. Moore. This year’s exhibition will take place at two locations simultaneously during the month of October: at Centenary College’s Magale Library as well as the LSUS University Center Gallery. This exhibition is open to all cartoon/graphic designers from the Northwest region of Louisiana.
How to participate:
Submit at least four pieces of work via digital image to this e-mail address BubbleRap@nwlaartgallery.com, or you may send photographs or slides to:
Northwest Louisiana Art Gallery
837 Drewry Drive
Shreveport, LA 71118
Our exhibition committee will select, says Moore, at least two pieces from each qualified artist for inclusion at each event location—one piece per location. There may be room for some artists to have more than one piece on exhibit at each location. Each exhibition location will feature original work…no repeats.
Having hung 2 Bubble shows, Moore has a few guidelines for artists: All work MUST BE SUITABLY FRAMED—no exceptions. No work on foam core will be accepted unless it is framed. No saw tooth hangers on the back of frames will be accepted. All frames must have a wire hanger. If you are submitting work on canvas it must be framed if the edge is less then 2 inches deep. If the edge is two inches deep or greater the edge may be painted black, or have the art wrap around the edge.
All work must be submitted to one of the above addresses no later than Wednesday, September 20th. The dates for delivery of work will be determined at a later date.
If you have any questions please write to BubbleRap@nwlaartgallery.com, or call Michael G. Moore at 318-686-3863.
