Call for Submissions
Call open from Tuesday June 23 – Tuesday July 7, 2015
The Blues has been a foundational music of Kitchener’s culture. Kitchener has developed it’s own unique Blues community and distinct sound. Our downtown music studios have been the fertile learning ground for talent and skills to be passed through generations of outstanding Blues musicians.
From its grassroots start, to its main-stage presence, the Blues continues to live and breathe in our city’s post-industrial pulse.
In this pop up show and sale, BarnRaising Associates are seeking submissions from artists who represent some part of the Blues through their work. This can be reflected in the culture, the music, the sensation, the lyrics, the instruments, the personalities, the beat, the Dust Bowl, or the pulse of this gritty genre. The Blues is the key. We are seeking original work from professional artist on canvas, in photos, wall hanging or in small sculptural pieces for display and sale. There will be 25% commission on all sold works.
The show will have a fundraising component in which funds raised will be donated to the Button Factory Arts Centre in Uptown Waterloo.
This show will be installed from August 5th to August 16th during the Blues Festival in downtown Kitchener. Please apply with a proposal, and your c.v. or bio at: firstname.lastname@example.org
