Composition Gallery and Wonderroot post open calls

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Need something to work on with your Thanksgiving time off? Most galleries will be closed for the next couple days, but you can spend that time making art instead. Both Composition Gallery and Wonderroot sent out open calls for art this week.

The deadline for Composition Gallery's annual Velrco show is coming up this Sunday, Nov. 29. The show will include both found and taken photographs.

Wonderroot is recruiting visual artists, performers, dancers, and musicians for a fundraiser called Cahoot with the Root in January, 2010. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, Dec.15.

Full details after the jump.

From the Composition Gallery:

This is the 4th annual edition of what is our very popular version of a pin-up show. If you have a photographic image that you've taken, or found, and you think it has artistic merit, bring it in and we'll stick it on the wall; or take a new picture especially for the show. And don't worry, we'll have some artist tape on hand to protect your image from the velcro glue. Photographs will be on display during regular gallery hours through Sunday December 20th.

There is a $5 entry fee for each photograph and the limit is 10. Images should be unframed, unmatted, and no larger than 16 X 20 inches, and can be priced to sell or not. Photos should be priced affordably to reflect the inclusive nature of the show. All prints will be hung as received. Title, photographer credit, and price should be clearly labeled on the border of the print or otherwise visible. Purchases are subject to sales tax and images for sale will be considered consigned merchandise. The gallery will retain a 20% commission on sold photos.

Bring your image(s) by the gallery during regular business hours between now and Sunday November 29th. Gallery hours and directions are at
