Dr. Sketchy’s art show: Call for Entries! Next session: Little Luna, May 24th!

We will be accepting Dr. Sketchy’s sketches (or Dr. Sketchy’s-inspired finished pieces) at our next session on the 24th!

Things to consider for this show :

–Work must be ready to hang.  This is an honest-to-goodness show, so we’re not tacking any torn-out sketchbook pages to the walls, folks. We recommend checking out the stock of frames at Artist & Craftsman Supply, just down the street from the Windup Space on North and Howard.

–The show will be installed May 31-June 1, so we’re hoping to get the majority of work on the 24th. If you need to drop off work after then, bring your work to the Windup Space between 5 and 8 pm through May 30 whenever they’re open (check out their calendar at www.thewindupspace.com).

–Please attach one entry form to each work submitted. We’ll have copies of these forms at the next session, but if you want a form to print out at home, email us and we’ll send it to you.

A note on the back of each piece with the following information will also work, as long as you include the following: your name, your contact information, the title of the piece, medium used, and the price of your piece if you’re interested in selling your work (please note that the Windup Space would take a 10% commission).

–We’re hoping to hang this show salon-style, so feel free to submit multiple pieces:

smaller than 9″ x 12″, bring up to 6 pieces,
larger 9″ x 12″ but smaller than 18″ x 24″, 2-4 pieces,
18″ x24″ or larger, bring 1-2

We’ll return anything that does not fit right back to you after installation.

–The show will be up through the end of July. That’s two months–including the weekend of Artscape, so this is a fantastic opportunity to be in a group art show that will be seen by tons of people.

–Also, we’re sharing the exhibit with some gorgeous portraits of burlesque performers (including some of your models) by J.M. Giordano, a really awesome Baltimore-based photographer (and publisher of Gutter Magazine) whose work has been in the Citypaper and the Urbanite.

–The opening will be June 9 (which happens to be the day after our 2nd anniversary), so mark your calendars!

We’ll see you next Monday, when we’ll have the lovely Little Luna of Gilded Lily Burlesque modeling for us! We know a lot of you have been looking forward to drawing her, especially after her originally scheduled session in February was taken out by Snowmageddon, so don’t miss it!


See you (and your framed work) on the 24th!
